UNDERSTANDING YOUR SELF
You are unique. You came into this world with
a distinct combination of psychological needs and personality traits, and
a special purpose for your soul in this life. You brought talents or gifts to achieve that purpose, and
you planned challenges and lessons to encounter on the way. Astrology describes these, reflected
by ten planets, through twelve signs as they occur in the twelve houses of your
birth chart. And the timing of the unfolding of your life plan is told by the
transiting planets as they continue to orbit through your birth chart.
Astrology does not tell us what to do or what
exactly will happen, yet it can clarify our life issues and reveal the timing of
events, influences and choices, so
that we can recognize and honor our soul's highest calling as life unfolds.
Everyone has a destiny. And everyone has free
will. What I am calling destiny is your soul's plan, a set of goals and
lessons you and your guides chose before this life. The soul's plan is general.
Most of the specifics are not known before life but are determined by the choices you
make every day. Our lives are created by this interweaving of our soul's plan
and free will. How much we learn, how much we grow, how far we travel, is up to
us. The ultimate intention is to experience more joy and delight as we become more conscious co-creators of our lives!
In a Birth Chart (Natal) Reading, based on your time and place of birth, we will look at where you soul has come
from in past lives and why your soul chose this present lifetime to
accomplish it's next purposes for spiritual growth and evolution. We will
examine how the particular traits, strengths, weaknesses and conflicts of your
ego's personality are configured to help your soul toward that mission. And we
will seek to understand how your past (the good, bad and ugly) fits into your
Astrology can tell us about ourselves and
others in relationship and how our energies might combine with another in both
supportive and challenging ways. It can help us to know ourselves and our needs
in relationships as well as the needs, life purpose, and unique expression of
the special person with whom we are in a relationship. This analysis is useful
for any type of relationship, including business and parent/child
A Relationship Reading will
- You and your partner's strengths and
weak-nesses in relationship.
- What kinds of people you and your partner
attract and are attracted to and why.
- What issues you and your partner are
likely to face in relationship.
- What you and your partner need in
relation-ships to be happy and fulfilled.
- The strengths, weaknesses, and obstacles
of a particular relationship.
- What challenges you and your partner might
be going through at a particular time.
- How you can best support each other to actualize each of your soul's intentions in this life.
Unlike some astrology advice columns, I will not tell you if a relationship is/will be good or bad. No astrologer can tell you that. However, I can tell you whether a relationship is/willl be more challenging, more conflictual, more harmonic or potentially more rewarding to your inner growth. Easy does not necessarily equal happy. Conflictual does not necessarily equal unhappy. It all depends on the maturity, consciousness and intention of the people involved.
In a Relationship Reading, using both peoples birth charts, we look at how the dynamics of each persons
make-up effects the other. How do the two souls' paths serve each other in
relationship? How does the make-up of their individual personalities harmonize
and clash? What gifts and what challenges are presented? How are they most
likely to push each other buttons? And how can they most effectively stay in
conscious support of each other's highest good.
Soul-centered astrology can point to your
deepest, earliest, and/or most profound wounds, explain their purpose in your life, and reveal the
enormous potential for your growth as you heal those wounds. I recommend, if you
haven't already, that you do personal healing work around these issues with responsible and trained intuitive healers.
Kristine and I offer an array of healing services
to help increase your awareness of your wounding issues and transform them
into sources of strength and joy in your life. Please explore this web site for
