What is the hardest thing in astrology for you?
Is there something "astrological" that's hard for you to do or to grasp?
The hardest thing for me is to write for a baby! I do this but each and every time, it is inordinately difficult. Whatever I write has to be true and valid and balanced. This can be done but it's akin to opening a vein. I mean, nothing else comes close!
This is why I don't advertise the service by the way. I think I am really good at it but it's just so, so, so hard. It's got to be poetry. I don't know any other way to put it. Some kind of divine agony to create it and what kills me is the end product may not look like much - length for example. But the fact is, every word is imbued. I know this, I think people might feel it.
I can't even tell you why this is but it's live diving off a building; somehow I have to land well.
What's hard for you?
Astrology is like math to me, I have a very hard time understanding how current transits hit my natal chart, or when you say some transit will happen at some point, I read comments and people know where it will hit their chart. I don't understand that part. Do I see degrees of that transit and then search in my chart do I have planets near those degrees and then see if it will hit it or not? And I still have a hard time understanding how the 8th house works, but I guess it's like the brain, you can't know all the secrets that house brings.
I actually struggle with just looking at a chart... I can process the info/placements/etc when it is listed as a table for me to see... but the chart itself - I only see conjunctions/oppositions right away... everything else I have to really analyze
Well, I just finished a baby chart. It took me 45 minutes to write 5-10 minutes of content. I did it though!
I think I should limit these to three a year!
I only really know my own chart. And even with that, I have trouble seeing the whole chart with all of the planets singing together, and instead I'm often focusing on individual transits or just placements in the natal chart. I think I'm ok at interpreting isolated events or transits...but I don't know how to go about putting the pieces together or interpret a chart as a whole.
The forest & tree thing (as others mentioned), for sure. I also feel like I don't get planets sitting on house cusps, & I've got quite a few of those in my own chart.
