Approach life with a sense of curiosity rather than with fear, doubt, or annoyance.
I don’t remember all of the details around the first time I saw my astrological birth chart, but I do remember the feeling it gave me. It was like that moment in a blackout when someone first turns on a flashlight or lights a candle. Illumination. Suddenly, you can see. That was me as I sat in a tiny, dimly lit room at the Psychic Eye Bookshop in San Francisco. Aeion, the most jolly, teddy bear of a man, was giving me a reading. He kept saying things like, “Whoo!” and “Oh boy” as he studied the intricate, colorful spider web of a pie chart that was presumably my star make-up. Now to some skeptics, and I was one myself in those first few mysterious moments of his verbal assessment of ‘me’, this show was just meant to lure me in and hook me into thinking he knew something about me that I didn’t. But what eventually came out of his mouth wasn’t some general or vague evaluation that could apply to just anyone. It had very specific meaning. Not only to my personal history but to the exact state of my being at that time. I mean the shit that just kept me up at night. That’s what Aeion was tapping into. And yes, those same skeptics could also say I was desperate in my search for answers to hear anything that may be close to a solution for my confused, early-twenties life. But, in all honesty, I had simply entered into that room and the reading as a curious person. And funny how when we approach life with a sense of curiosity rather than with fear, doubt, or annoyance, that the world then opens a doorway to possibility, awakening, and complete, unabashed transformation.

If we look back on the life we have lived thus far, we are able to see what chameleons we each can be.
If we look back on the life we have lived thus far, we are able to see what chameleons we each can be. In my 34-ish years, I have already lived so many lives and have been an array of different people. Some versions of myself have been angrier than others. Some have been less responsible. Others have been more frugal, more creative, drunker, and poorer. But at the core, they have all been me. Over the years, I have been able to let go of aspects of myself that were not working or have forced myself to change them when the going got tough. I mean, we’ve all done it.
Take a minute to look back at your life ten years ago. For me, I was living in San Francisco, working as a full time astrologer and tarot reader. My schedule from day to day was never the same. I had seven roommates: three humans and four cats. And I was probably out dancing instead of at home typing. I also was incredibly insecure, secretly fearful, and believed I was meant to rule the world. Who were you? Which aspects of you were working and which weren’t? Did you like the you that existed then? Have you changed much? I look back and have you ask all of these questions in honor of this week’s full moon in Sagittarius.

Jupiter wants to offer each of us luck and expansion in areas where we most need it.
Molly Hall, an astrological teacher of mine and all around amazing person, writes in her extremely informative book, KNACK ASTROLOGY, that “Jupiter stands at the leading edge of awareness as a herald of future visions and potentials, leading us beyond known limits and constantly expanding our perspective.” In essence, what she is saying is that Jupiter allows us to see past the narrow perceptions we have created for ourselves. It’s present when we ace that intimidating interview and land our dream job. It’s in the room when we finally have the courage to go up to someone who has caught our eye and say hello. It’s the nudge we get to say yes to that trip that seems impossible to pay for but ultimately inspires us toward a major life transformation. Jupiter wants to offer each of us luck and expansion in areas where we most need it. And, it can be most beneficial when it’s pushing us to see a personal truth about ourselves that we are deeply afraid to face. Everyone should become aware of where Jupiter is in their lives. That knowledge will help give birth to the abundance we each need to thrive.

First off, my deepest apologies for having taken so long to write a new post. Life just happened and seemed to just keep on happening. Some of it in the form of inner, personal frustrations (which I blame on my 12th House transits that have been occurring during this last month). The rest of it came in the form of an amazing trip to Europe (my first!), where I got to see parts of France and Spain. It was a magnificent trip that allowed me to visit places in the world I never thought I would get the chance to see. It also offered me an opportunity to open up my view of the world, but even more importantly, it opened me up to a new perspective about myself.
Without that shift in consciousness where you tell yourself that something is possible, there’s no way for that ‘something’ to enter your life.
