Welcome to the Home of Astrology Matters!
The practice of astrology has been around in some form since the beginning of time and humans have always looked to the beyond to find a greater purpose to their lives. Modern astrology can provide powerful insight into a character, ways of interacting with the world, the quality of relationships, strengths, challenges. This is not to say that astrology provides answers people want!
Astrology helps you understand who you are, how you tick and, most of all it allows you to create a framework for self-acceptance and self-actualisation. This is stunningly liberating if used wisely and purposefully. As with all personal growth, it requires a level of exploration or reflection of, both, positive parts of our nature and the challenging, less impressive and darker side of ourselves…and we all have one!
Jung referred to it as the shadow, and once you accept the multifaceted, and at times conflicting parts of the self, your path in life can become somewhat easier. Understanding how these create high developmental tension and integrating your differences can be the biggest challenge you will undertake.
Using the horoscope, Astrologers look at the patterns and relationships of the Sun, Moon and planets and interpret those in terms of human behaviour. This is an extraordinarily complex process to learn and takes many years to become masterful in the art.
The natal horoscope presents the raw talent or potential available to the individual. It suggests a predisposition to certain types of behaviours. Psychodynamically, astrology cuts through the many layers of human defences to identify your core drivers and issues that reside within you. Understanding your core drivers enables us to work to maximise your potential. This unfolding process is one of allowing a deeper understanding of the self. From there you can maximise your strengths, get to know your triggers and build strategies that support healthy psychological growth. Although, always a work in progress, it will lead you to experience a richer, more satisfying and authentic life.
The human potential movement has been with us for many years now and there are many varied and valid pathways for people to validate who they are. Some can take considerable time, not to mention the cost.
Your personal horoscope provides insight into your unique psychological patterning. It gets to the heart of ‘what’s going on here’, more quickly than any other process I have experienced or observed. Our methods cut through to core drivers and issues more quickly which means clients can move to work with issues, maximising opportunity, or become unstuck. Identifying psychological predisposition is one thing yet there are no shortcuts to development, it takes focus, clarity of intent, commitment, and a desire to grow and change to yield truly satisfying results.
Another gift of astrology is timing, no other discipline does this with same the level of precision. We need to understand that no matter how much we may want movement in or out of a particular situation it simply won’t happen till the time is right.
With an accurate horoscope, Astrology can reveal, for example, it can identify periods that will be relatively short or, like many longers transits, shows a process of growth that will take a number of years. For 40 plus years I have watched people expend an enormous amount of emotional energy in trying to hurry or force a decision, take action, or move too quickly only for it to backfire. It can be a waste of time so the benefit of astrology is we can guide you as to the best placement of your efforts at any one time even if challenging undercurrents exist.
I have come to understand you don’t make deals with the universe! And sometimes life will seem as you are swimming through treacle and others time you will feel as if you are in perfect harmony (flow) with the universe.
Understanding the nature and use of cycles and rhythms can be a powerful tool in self-discovery, changing careers, taking up opportunities, forging key relationships, and considering critical periods in your life. Having said that there are some cycles, aspect patterns and types of energy that are, well, a pain in the psychological butt! These times are often when you experience your greatest learning and make your greatest progress, even if it doesn’t feel like it. The level of integration into the self, impacts the quality of the decision/s you make, the type and quality of relationships you attract into your life and the degree of satisfaction and self-acceptance you ultimately feel. These are certainly complex issues.
Astrology will expand your consciousness in so much as you come to terms with who you are, what you believe and how you might contribute to and find your place in the world. In other words, one discovers the good, the bad and the ugly! Understanding creates acceptance. Acceptance of self creates empowerment. Empowerment becomes a platform for continuous growth and evolution.
The art of perfect timing becomes liberating as you utilise its knowledge to maximise your own potential and isn’t that what the human potential movement seeks to achieve?
