So You Turned 50 This Year (or Whenever...)

I watched a great video by Gary Vaynerchuck a few weeks ago, and it got me thinking about astrology. It is about age being relative, and how we are a lot younger than we think - younger than our parents and grandparents were at the same age (you can watch it below). With modern medicine, we're going to live longer and healthier than the generations that came before us. The milestones that we grew up with are irrelevant. In Gary Vee's words: if you are 50, don't wrap it up, start it up. Your whole life is ahead of you. This idea also resonates 100,000% with astrological timing ...

Here is why:

There are a number of cycles that we track with astrology. If we look at the movement of the planets through the zodiac, every so often, they return to the same place in the sky as the moment of our birth. This happens every month with the Moon, and every year with the Sun. And with Saturn, every 28 or 29 years, a phenomenon that is known as our Saturn Return. Saturn is the Lord of Karma so if we have been straying from our soul's path to personal growth and fulfillment, Saturn will send an event to get us back on track. It isn't always pleasant; many a divorce has happened on a Saturn transit. Saturn sends adjustments every 7 years when he completes 25% of his orbit, and an overhaul every 28-29 years. We can get ahead of the curve with a bit of introspection, especially by assessing our priorities and addressing any issues ahead of time before any changes are forced on us.

So how can we try to figure out what our life purpose is? Our natal chart can point us in the right direction, especially when we look at our eclipses, and the placement known as the Moon's Nodes (Sound familiar? We covered them here.) Today I'd like to focus on the Moon's Nodes; the placement that speaks to the beliefs and comfort zones that we need to release before we can find our bliss on the other side. By pinpointing the zodiac sign that our North Node is in, we can identify the behavioral patterns that will help us find that bliss, even though it may be uncomfortable at first. We have all of our lives to resolve these issues, although life will send us a pressure test every 19 years (at the Node's Return), where we are pushed out of our comfort zones. We can see this as an opportunity to grow. My first return was pretty cool; I'm looking forward to the second one when I turn 38 in 2018!

So I was watching Gary's video on turning 50, and it dawned on me that not only should we be thinking about starting it up when we are in our 50's. We also have two big growth spurts to look forward to, the second Saturn Return at 57-58, and the third cycle of the Moon's Nodes at about 57. You could say that the 50's are the place to be, that 60 is the new 40, and 100 will be the new 80. Life is changing, we are all a lot younger than we think. Watch the clip below; my Diary of a Psychic Healer Facebook Page LOVED IT =) And apologies in advance for any curse words ...
