The Life Journey

In my astrology practice, I encourage transformation and do my best to empower you to take ownership of your experiences. My goal is to guide you through the self-work necessary to navigate your life with grace and ease. While astrology is often associated with an acceptance of fate—our future seemingly written in the stars—I firmly believe in the power of free will. The themes and patterns we encounter are indeed influenced by celestial alignments, yet we possess the agency to shape our experiences and perceptions. By understanding these themes, we can align ourselves with the flow of life rather than be swept away by it. So, what can we do? It essentially comes down to the task of truly getting to know yourself. In our sessions, we delve into several key principles: - What we think, we become. - As within, so without. - Everything changes. - Anything is possible if we believe it to be so. - All feelings and experiences are equal—there are no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ experiences or feelings. We should embrace and enjoy them all. - There is a fundamental design to our experience here on earth: everything happens for a reason. These principles are not just philosophical musings; they are actionable steps you can take daily: Know what you think, and challenge your thinking if it isn’t making you feel good. Know what you believe, and challenge your beliefs if they are limiting you. Know what you feel: allow yourself to feel it fully, understand its origins, and determine if there is anything you need to change to feel more or less of that feeling in the future. As Carl Jung wisely stated, “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” My role is to help you bring these unconscious patterns to light, empowering you to shape your destiny with conscious intent. I fundamentally believe we live in a benevolent universe with love at its core. This understanding reassures me that the universe supports our efforts to know ourselves, to free ourselves, and to be ourselves. In our astrology readings, we will work together to uncover your unique cosmic blueprint, enabling you to live your best life and be your best self. Through this journey of self-discovery and transformation, you will find the insights and inspiration needed to thrive, fully supported by the universe.

"Without self knowledge, without understanding the working and functions of his machine, man cannot be free, he cannot govern himself and he will always remain a slave." - Geoff Gurdjieff

The Work

Through my own journey quest, which was guided by The Universe in a magical way (read more about that here), I have found validation and inspiration by two teachers and their processes: 'The Work' as described by G.I. Gurdjieff and Carl Jung's concept of individuation. Both teachers focus on the process of self-development and self-realisation, although they approach it from slightly different angles.

Gurdjieff's 'The Work'

Gurdjieff’s 'The Work' refers to a spiritual and psychological process aimed at awakening the higher potential of human beings. According to Gurdjieff, most people live in a state of "waking sleep," unaware of their true potential. 'The Work' involves:

  1. Self-observation: Becoming aware of one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviours without judgement.

  2. Self-remembering: Recalling one’s true self or higher consciousness amidst daily activities.

  3. Conscious effort: Engaging in practices and exercises designed to develop willpower and self-awareness

 

Gurdjieff believed that through 'The Work,' individuals could develop their higher faculties and attain a more profound understanding of themselves and The Universe.

Carl Jung’s Individuation

Carl Jung's concept of individuation is the process of integrating various aspects of the self to become a whole, authentic individual. Key components of individuation include:

  1. Exploration of the unconscious: Understanding and integrating unconscious thoughts, memories, and desires.

  2. Shadow work: Confronting and integrating the darker, often rejected parts of the psyche (the shadow).

  3. Self-actualisation: Realising one's fullest potential by harmonising the conscious and unconscious parts of the mind.

 

Jung viewed individuation as essential for achieving psychological health and maturity, enabling individuals to fulfil their unique potential and live authentically.

Why Work on Ourselves?

Working on oneself brings several benefits:

  1. Increased self-awareness: Understanding one's motives, desires, and patterns.

  2. Emotional balance: Managing emotions more effectively and reducing inner conflict.

  3. Authenticity: Living a life that aligns with one’s true self.

  4. Personal growth: Developing skills, insights, and resilience.

  5. Enhanced relationships: Improved understanding and empathy towards others.

 

The Role of Birth Chart (Life Journey) Reading

An birth chart reading can significantly assist in self-development by:

 

  1. Revealing true self: Identifying inherent strengths, challenges, and life themes.

  2. Uncovering shadows: Highlighting aspects of the self that may be hidden or repressed.

  3. Guidance for growth: Providing insights into life paths, potential crises, and periods of transformation.

  4. Validation and direction: Offering validation for personal experiences and guidance for future decisions.

 

Carl Jung would examine the birth charts of his patients to gain insights into their unconscious motivations, conflicts, and potentials. He believed that the astrological chart could reveal underlying psychological dynamics that might not be immediately apparent through traditional analysis. He also used it to uncover repressed aspects of the psyche, referred to as the shadow, and to support his patients in integrating these parts into the conscious self, giving them more autonomy over their lives:​

“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”

By understanding the symbolic language of the birth chart, you can gain a deeper insight into your psyche, align your actions with your inner nature, and navigate your life more consciously.

Working on oneself is a lifelong journey that brings untold benefits. Astrology can complement this journey by providing insights into your character and life path, helping to uncover unconscious patterns and guiding your process of self-discovery.

Thinking about a chart reading?

Why Should You Have a Birth Chart Reading?

A birth chart reading is a powerful tool for self-discovery and personal growth. It offers a unique perspective on your inherent strengths, challenges, and life path. By examining the positions of the planets at the time of your birth, an astrology reading can reveal:

  • Your True Self: Understand the core aspects of your personality, including your motivations, desires, and potential.

  • Life Challenges: Identify the obstacles and patterns that may be holding you back and learn how to overcome them.

  • Purpose and Direction: Gain clarity on your life purpose and the direction you should take to fulfil your highest potential.

 

How Can Astrology Help?

Astrology helps by providing a deeper understanding of yourself and your life circumstances. It serves as a mirror reflecting the dynamics of your inner and outer worlds. Through astrology, you can:

  • Unlock Self-Knowledge: Discover hidden aspects of your psyche and gain insights into your behavioural patterns.

  • Navigate Transitions: Understand the timing of significant life events and prepare for upcoming changes.

  • Enhance Relationships: Improve your interactions and relationships by understanding compatibility and communication styles.

  • Personal Growth: Use astrological insights to work on personal development and self-improvement.

I want to remind you that you are magical, amazing, and special, and astrology is a profound way to illuminate these truths.
