You know you are a geek when the highlight of your day is the new astrological ephemeris that arrived in the mail, courtesy of Amazon that now delivers to Mexico! If you've never seen an ephemeris, it's a book full of numbers that tracks the movement of the planets, moon and the stars through the zodiac.
Astrologers traditionally turned to these numerical tomes to generate natal charts, using the movement of the planets through the signs to predict events in a person's life. Personally I'm still on the fence about predictions - would I rather know, or not know?). We can also use these windows of time to heal ourselves by connecting with the planets at a precise time and integrating its energy into our lives in a way that balances out our personal seesaw (you'll see what I mean below...)
Special Offer On Astrology Readings!
To celebrate the arrival of my new ephemeris, I'm offering 60 minute astrology readings for 45 USD dollars (15% off). The focus of the reading will be on your natal chart from a personal power point of view, looking at the range of behaviours, attitudes and instincts that come naturally for each of the major placements in your chart. The theory is that for each of the major placements in our chart (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus & Mars) there is an empowering and productive way to lean into it's energy, and an opposite behavioural pattern that plays into our fears instead.
In the reading we would explore these placements and think about how our lives are unfolding, bringing self-awareness, healing and empowerment into the mix by shedding a light on our patterns and making a conscious decision to transform them. As a bonus, we can also work with the moon's transit through the zodiac to connect with specific zodiac signs to balance us out. The idea would be to connect with a specific energy that could be underrepresented in our lives, working with the Moon and crystal magick to bring that sign or that planet's energy down to us.
The image that comes to mind is that of a seesaw on a playground, where we might have an 8 year old child called Aries on one end, and a 6 year old called Libra on the other (Libra and Aries are opposites). By virtue of Aries size and weight, he will be planted firmly on the ground and quite possibly keeping Libra out of play (a floating in the air). By studying our natal charts and working with healing, moon and crystal magick, we can add a bit of weight to our Libra side so that both of the children's feet are able to touch the ground, keeping both of the children in the game.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for inquiries. I'll need your time, date and place of birth to do a full reading though we can look at most of the major placements without the exact time. Let me know if you have any questions.
This Little Book Speaks Volumes...
If you are curious, this is what an ephemeris looks like. We have rows for every day of the year (2000-2050), and a column for each planet. I have been using these primarily to ascertain which of the New and Full Moon's will have an influence in my life, as the moons need to fall at 60, 90, 120, or 180 degree angles to planets or house cusps to be felt. There will be moons that make many aspects, influencing many spheres of life, and others that go almost unnoticed, influencing those around us instead.
I keep also keep a cheat sheet tucked away in my book, making it easier for me to spot transits that impact my sun, moon, my ruling planet or my Ascendant. We could go into a huge amount of detail with astrology, making it very complex. But it doesn't have to be a mathematical problem... one of my goals it to write a very very very simple astrology book that explains the basics from a healing point of view in terms we can all grasp. For now I'm still wrapping my head around it.
