…. and Jupiter aligns with Mars (raise your hand if you remember the song!)
Anyway, all that fanfare to say that I had a wonderful two hour astrology consultation with Risa D’Angeles, an esoteric astrologer I know from the Seminary. You can read more about her at her website NightLight News.
Risa writes a weekly astrology column featured on her website and also at Sancta Sophia’s. For some reason, I felt drawn to having my charts read to give me a sense of what planetary energetic forces are at work in my life and what might be coming up for me in the near future.
It was definitely validating to see the reasons why I have the gifts I do – for example, she showed me (on my chart) why I can communicate with the other side, why I am as protective of my work as a mother would be with her child (which explains my run in with a certain relative this past summer and why I will no longer brook ANY judgment of my spirituality), how there is a “constant call for (you) to create” through communication. That explains the blog thingy, doesn’t it? Not one, but TWO of them!
I was born under the last degree of Libra so the first 30 years of my life have been spent as a Scorpio which, along with Pisces, sees things other signs don’t. That makes sense to me and I always wondered why what seemed right in front of my face wasn’t that way with others. I have spent the past 18 years as a Sagittarius which has to do with teaching and understanding higher abstract concepts (I think I copied that right. She gave me lots of information so that might have gotten mixed in with another piece of it.)
Interestingly, she asked me if I knew what my primary “wound” has been in life (I did but didn’t say it) and she continued saying “It has to do with separation from your father”. BINGO. Fear of being abandoned has played a big role in my life. She could see it right on my chart, too. She said “your father’s death changed you” and that is correct.
In the “Here and Now” chart, she showed me two things that had just occurred: a change in my work situation (yep, again with the hours thing) and unexpected communication (which happened yesterday morning with a text message). That was interesting, indeed.
Lots of other things were discussed but one of the most important things she shared and that I want to share with you (three readers) was this: much of our life is spent gathering “knowledge” and somewhere in your mid 50’s, there will be a knock at the door and you will be called to “do your work”. It is this knowledge gathering that is preparation for that knock when we will begin to narrow our focus. That eased my mind a bit to make sure I am “on my path” because, as she said, we are all “on our path”, however we do it.
It was not an inexpensive consultation but absolutely money well spent (and she seemed willing to negotiate if that wasn’t do-able but I was able to swing it so I did). Risa was warm, kind and so knowledgeable. She gave me insight on a couple relationships and showed me why one of my best gifts is the ability to hold space for someone to just feel what it is they need to feel.
Very enlightening. My head was chock full of info by the time we got off the line. (I should have just gone to bed right after that!)
