Why do we want to know the future? Do we really want a sneak preview of what’s coming? What does it change for us, if anything? And, is it really that we want to know what’s coming, or, is something else going on for us as we move about the planet? Worry, anxiety, uncertainty, or fear?
Psychologists indicate that the reason some of us can watch the same movie or show several times over is that it provides a place for certainty; we know what the outcome is going to be and that relieves anxiety. In a world of uncertainty, knowing the outcome increases our sense of security.
Former First Lady Nancy Reagan was criticized, scrutinized, politicized and applauded because of a ‘relationship with an astrologer.’
Mrs. Reagan consulted an astrologer because she was scared out of her worrisome, Cancerian mind that her high-profile, President-husband, who’d just experienced an assassination attempt, was going to be killed in office because an astrologer manipulated Mrs. Reagan with a Zero Year theory, which came to nothing, after all.
The Zero Year theory that Joan Quigley influenced Mrs. Reagan with suggests that presidents elected in years ending in zero have died in office. This news coming right after an assassination attempt was compelling. However, President Reagan did not die in office.
Happy, content, successful people rarely consult astrologers, psychics and mediums. Secure people don’t need to reach out too far beyond normal support systems.
Desperate people seek desperate measures, and like it or not, that’s where we’ve landed ourselves, as a group, through misuse of our mojo.
Helping people help themselves is a creed; holding a light for other seekers is an honor; deciding we know someone else’s life is not our place.
During transitions in life such as empty nest, recent college graduation, loss of a loved one, relocation, divorce, etc., there are phases; we become uncertain in many of these phases; we get restless; sometimes, panicky, then, desperate to make sense out of things; the momentum from the natural upheavals in life overwhelm us at times.
A potential astrotherapy client came to me several years ago, shortly after her last kid left home. She wanted me to do her chart because she didn’t know which direction her life should go in now; she was in her late fifties.
Her marriage was happy; her health and social life were fine; she enjoyed her work and her home. But, she was miserable.
“I don’t know how to get through the day,” she pleaded.
She was mourning. Life was being life – there was nothing ‘to do.’ Especially, a chart. We need a chart when we’re lost or searching, not sad and just living; which is what I told her.
And, we don’t need a forecast to tell us that life will be hard when the nest empties or when life transitions, or when life is just sucky for a bit. Life is good; life is bad; life is good; life is bad; life is good.
Astrology has so much to offer us in terms of understanding our personality and how the structure of our personality literally supports the path of our soul. That’s where astrology is so potent and absolute, every time.
The world was made round so that we can’t see too far up ahead. Yes, it’s fun to imagine that there is a crystal ball – and, there is: you.
