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)…

The Universe is Sending You an Evite

Dear Beloved Child,

I am sending you this Evite to invite you to step up and meet your full potential. I have actually sent you this Evite many times. You know how, when you don't reply to an Evite, it gets sent to you again and again. Those Evites I sent you could have been in the form of the relationship breakups, the sadistic bosses, the angry road ragers, the judging authority figures, the addictive behavior patterns. I have sent so many Evites. In fact, that's mostly what I do: send Evites to graduation parties. I love celebrating when you graduate to a new level of realizing your potential.

The Buddha Had a Mowhawk

The Punk movement began in the mid-1970's, when Saturn and Uranus were in a particularly tense angular alignment known as a "square" (I was born under this very alignment). Saturn's archetype symbolizes authority and conservative values, as well as traditions and austerity. Uranus is in many ways the opposite of Saturn. It is the archetype of rebellion, disruption, revolution and freedom. Since the two planets, and thus their archetypes, were combined in a tense square angle in the mid-1970's we saw them struggling against one another, yet embodying one another...

We Are Our Stories, But They Are Not Us

Every single human life, no matter what the content, from the most trauma-filled to the most boring, is merely a story. Not only is every human life a story, but it is a story telling itself to itself; there is no fixed underlying main character in the story. This is the aspect of reality that allows every human life equal access to freedom. By freedom I do not mean a mundane freedom involving physical, political, and/or economic freedom. No. That is more story. I mean freedom from the past, freedom from trauma, regret, remorse, depression, anger, negativity, in short: freedom from suffering...
