The Reason Why You Are Weird

When we say that something is “weird,” what we are really saying is that we don’t understand it.

            This is where astrology comes in.

            Behavior that seems strange at the outset, even to the leading edge of western psychology, can be easily explained by understanding the astrological birth chart of the person involved.

            We humans are much more complex and fascinating than our popular culture allows. Sometimes we carry great contradictions within ourselves. This is because powerful archetypes inside of us are trying to reconcile their different energies. We have an entire universe inside ourselves. Just as there are powerful forces at play in the universe outside of us, there are also equally powerful forces at play within us…

How to Channel Your Raw Sexual/Creative Energy Productively #GeorgeRRMartin #SelenaGomez #BruceSpringstein #FrankFrazetta #GordonRamsey #MarlonBrando

In our astrological birth chart our raw sexual/creative/destructive energy is reflected in where Pluto was when we were born.

In Greco/Roman mythology Pluto was the god of the underworld. In astrology Pluto symbolizes the power of our deep instincts.

The power that lies below the earth (in Pluto’s realm) is released through explosive volcanic eruptions.

Similarly, the powerful instincts that lie deep within us can erupt out of us in volcanic acts of creation, passion, or destruction.

That passion can be destructive or productive and creative depending on whether or not we know how to use it. We learn how to use it when we understand what Pluto was combined with when we were born, and thus we understand our own deeply personal passion power, and how to use it for good in our work…

Are You Scattered? It May Be Your Gift #JoeRogan #AllessiaCara

Our biggest challenge in life is not troubling behaviors. Our biggest challenge in life is our lack of understanding of those troubling behaviors.

            Often in our most troubling behavior lies the most potent gift we have to give the world. The gift comes when we truly understand our behavior.

            For instance, say someone is scattered and all over the place. This is a common behavior pattern that can cause real damage to lives and relationships.

The multi-passionate side of themselves is a side they don’t yet understand. And this very side of themselves may harbor a unique strength that’s dying to find the right outlet…

How to Turn Your Anger Into a Spiritual Path #WuTangClan #QuentinTarantino #KhabibNurmagomedov #MoriheiUeshiba #UmaThurman

When we understand the symbolic language of astrology we can gain so much clarity about our own behavior and how to transform our self-sabotaging behavior into our personal strength.

For example, in astrology the symbolism of Mars is associated with our ability to spring into action. Wars, arguments, fights, as well as bravery, assertiveness, and agency are all associated with Mars. The symbolism of Neptune involves all things that appear infinite, like the ocean and heaven.

When one is born with Mars and Neptune together we see Mars’ action-oriented tendency toward bravery and conflict combined with the water-like and spiritual qualities of Neptune…

How Constraints May Help You Achieve Your Fullest Potential #Dr.Seuss #Beethoven

In astrology we have seemingly conflicting archetypes. For instance, Saturn represents constraints and limitations. Uranus represents freedom and liberation.

What happens if you were born when those two planets were aligned with each other? In other words, how would it play out in your life if constraints and limitations were combined with freedom and liberation?

Well, the people born with this combination often thrive in situations in which constraints are placed on their productivity. Paradoxically, their productivity increases because the constraint gives them a box and a structure within which they can play…

Your Inner Emotional Life and How You are Seen in the Public Eye Can Both be Understood by the Position of the Moon at Your Birth #MaisieWilliams #AryaStark #AlexandriaOcasioCortez #GameofThrones

The position of the Moon the moment you were born, particularly the other planets it was aligned with, reflects both how you subjectively emotionally perceive the world, and how the world subjectively sees you.

            In astrology the Moon symbolizes our individual emotional identity. It also symbolizes our collective emotional identity. When we, as a collective, “feel” a certain way about a person in the public eye, that way we feel about them can be seen reflected in the alignments with the Moon when they were born.

            For example, both actress Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark in the HBO series Game of Thrones, and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, were born when the Moon was aligned with Neptune…

How to Use Astrology to Align Your Will and Your Emotions #conormcgregor #fullmoon #newmoon

Do you set out to fulfill your life’s purpose and find that your emotions have hijacked your efforts?

            The universe we see when we look up at the night sky actually reflects the universe that is within us. Where the Sun and Moon were on the moment you were born reflects the relationship between your will (Sun) and your emotions (Moon).

            If you were born on a new or full Moon, for instance, your will and emotions are combined in a tense relationship. You may set out to consciously accomplish something through your will (Sun) and find that your emotions (Moon) side-track you.

            The lesson here is that people born with the Sun and Moon in a tense alignment actually need to integrate the caring, nurturing emotion-focused quality of the Moon into their conscious will…

Is Life Aggressively Beating You Over the Head? Your Astrological Birth Chart Teaches You How to Quickly Turn that Dynamic Around #BrieLarson #Avengers #CaptainMarvel

When life seems to want to actively punish you, it is actually trying to strengthen you.

            According to astrology, the universe outside us reflects the universe within us. When the planets Mars and Saturn align in a tense angle in the sky, the alignment reflects that burdens, responsibilities, and reality checks (Saturn) are aggressively active (Mars). If you were born during this sort of alignment this theme is present throughout your whole life.

            What life is actually doing is trying to forge out of you a responsible (Saturn) warrior (Mars) with a bravely (Mars) self-possessed authority (Saturn)…
