We all understand there are huge benefits to having a coach such as being in synch with your values, developing strategies for personal success, creating more meaningful relationships, and being aligned with your purpose. Success with these aspects of your being come together to bring about more internal harmony which results in greater personal clarity, confidence, and a more fulfilled life.
Coaches will use a variety of tools to facilitate the coaching process: listening, questioning, clarifying, challenging, encouraging, and reinforcing while checking and monitoring. All of these are designed to help you and they do. Crafting specific goals is essential to the process. This is often the hardest part for you. Often, you have a goal, yet clarifying and then articulating it, can be extremely difficult. Effective coaches are very good at assisting with this process, yet does it really provide the focus where it may be needed? I hope the following provides insight into a powerful combined alternative.
How would you feel if you could pinpoint, at any time, where your life energies were best placed?
Developmental Coaching uses astrology to allow for and considers the evolution of the individual at any point in time. The horoscope reveals what universal energies you have available and what you may need to develop to maximise your potential. In addition, it can identify the exact timeframes for this development to take place. Although other ‘alternative’ disciplines are very good, astrology is the only discipline that provides direction with timing. Nothing else does. This is tremendously potent information for you. This means you can design specific objectives, based on universal principles, to build strategies for success while focusing on your desired outcome for the development required at the time. In other words, how to get the most out of your circumstances and therefore life.
The challenge of being successful and fulfilled.
What becomes important is that are in sync with your own developmental needs or are you focussing on what you think you want? There is a big difference. Some folk look beyond what is and ask about the meaning of their lives and as such tend to gravitate to those activities that, although maybe challenging, allow them to become more well-rounded and complete. Astrological coaching can help navigate through the noise!
One of the biggest challenges occurs if you want, for example, to focus on your dream of building a business yet the horoscope is clearly showing that you are facing significant relationship issues and your whole value system is undergoing change. For a whole range of reasons, you may not be in sync with this and feel as if you are swimming against the tide, putting valuable energy into activities that don’t yield your desired results. It is probably a question of timing or is there something else inhibiting your dream?
Life is far too short to guess what, when and how you can take action and develop and your horoscope is the key.
You may be thinking that the above discussion supports those who say that life is fated, and we have no choice. Not so. You can act as the alchemist of your life and make significant changes to turn your base metal into gold or you can choose not to. Choosing not to make a change may look like taking the familiar (pattern entrained) way out. Remember that no decision is still a decision! Of course, the result is that if you keep doing the same you keep getting the same result. Choosing growth will, sometimes, set you up for challenging times. Coaching, with an experienced coach,can help in the process of letting go of the old and creating space for the new is confronting for most no matter how welcome the change might be. Success usually comes after considerable application. Even for the good stuff! Making successful change on a temporary basis is one thing yet integrating it into the personality, the core of the person, is something quite different. It takes time, commitment, and a genuine desire to evolve.
My most significant learning is the power that lies behind two seemingly simple cliché’s: go with the flow and be careful about what you ask for because you’re likely to get it! Going with the flow often looks and feels like you are doing the right thing, you have a sense you are on the right path and consequently, there are minimal or no blockages and often helping hands propel you forward. Being clear about what you ask for puts an enormous responsibility on you to be clear in articulating your goals. Sometimes the results are bittersweet. Further, it teaches you to consider the consequences of any action no matter how small. Be assured there are always consequences, some may be unintended. The timing of which will be reflected in the horoscope.
Development Coaching using astrology is specific, and two conversations take place to establish focus and understanding. The first identifies your internal dynamics and your current stage of growth which uses the horoscope as a tool and sets the context for the second conversation about the coaching process.
