Ever since I was a kid I’ve been obsessed with astrology. It started with girly magazines – reading what my upcoming month would be like based on my sun-sign. From there it escalated to my mom coming home with horoscope books for me to enjoy – about what every sign could expect for the upcoming year, or a whole book about Pisces. Every time I visit my grandma (this has been going on for probably a decade now), I grab her woman’s magazine and read the weekly horoscope out loud for both me and her – more as a joke than anything else. But I’ve always had a real curiosity and belief in the planets and their impact on our lives and who we are.
Pisces. My sign. I’ve always felt so connected to it, and proud of it. But not until a few years ago did I become aware that there are more to the whole astrology thing than our sun-sign. There are moon-signs, rising signs, different houses and loads more that goes into it.
I’ve tried reading my whole birth chart myself several times (also with help from the awesome website Astrolabe), but last Friday I got serious and contacted an actual astrologer to do a reading for me. The session found place yesterday – and did in a few different ways point me in the direction of more trust and inner calm.
Key points from my reading:
My chart shows that I have close to nothing of the earth element in me – just a lot of water and fire. In other words; grounding doesn’t come naturally to me. Inner peace is something I have to bring into my life myself. I have to consciously work on grounding to feel safe and not too ‘airy’, and also to lay the foundation on which I can start building cool things.
I do have a yod in my chart. I had no idea what that was prior to this reading, but apparently its known as ‘finger of God’. I was explained that if you have a yod in your chart, there’s something specific you’re on this earth to do – in this lifetime. You’re basically on a mission. I’ve always felt like there’s this one thing I’m here to do, just haven’t been able to put my finger on what that is. Learning about this yod of mine reassured that feeling, and made me trust that what it is will become clear to me when its meant to.
I haven’t yet had my Saturn return. It happens when we’re 28-29 years old, and for many people life stirs up a bit at that time. If you’re not on the right path, you will be directed to it at that point.
Plutos place in my chart at the moment can explain why I feel so foggy and have a hard time knowing what to do moving forward. (Thanks Pluto, hehe.)
Based on all this I’ve taken a step back, mentally, and stopped pushing so hard. Especially in the area of career, where I’ve been very frustrated lately. I trust that this is not the right time to find definite answers about that, and that when the time is right I’ll be directed to where I need to go. I’ve also researched ways of feeling more grounded and how to open the root chakra – and I’m on my way to make some of those things a part of my daily routine (although I hate routines… and that’s exactly why I need it I guess hehe.)
I did my reading with beautiful Tonje.
