Seeing Ourselves Clearly

In order to make any lasting change in ourselves we need to have a clear  understanding of who we are.

We need to look under the cover and protection of the ego. We must come to understand and make clear distinctions between who we are and the ego we have constructed around ourselves.

It is easy to become attached to the image that we present to the world, it is not so easy to see who is deeply buried underneath that construction!

Who are we? How do we learn to see ourselves clearly?

The process of self discovery is always a multi-step journey. For me this journey began on the path of Astrology.  Astrology was the first clear and open window to self understanding.

This window has lead me down interesting pathways and in unusual directions over the past 40 years!

The Astrological symbols spoke to me right from the start. They continue to speak, their voices sharp and clear after so many years of continual polishing.

If you have the interest, if the symbols speak to you, take up the study. Let me know if you need help!

I had it pointed out to me recently that my dad and I had something in common that I had never considered. My dad was in the Merchant Marines in World War II. He learned to navigate ships by the position of the planets.  He loved the navigation! Fascinating to realize that he and I each spent an important part of our journeys looking toward the heavens!

MOON IS IN LEO all day adding to the excitement and drama of Election Day in the USA.

And we certainly do have drama!

Mercury turns Retrograde at 6:03pm EST! This is not good news, there is bound to be all kinds of issues and problems with the voting!  Here we go again!

In some ways perhaps I am a fatalist! Astrologically the writing on the wall speaks of intensity, deep challenge, and transformation in the upcoming 4 year period of time. I don’t see that changing regardless of who wins the election. I believe we will simply have to work through these times regardless of who resides in the White House.

No, I am not saying it does not matter, and I certainly do have my preference and yet….. my deepest hope is that we can move forward with whatever/whoever we have to work with.

Today also brings us the 3rd QUARTER MOON AT 15degrees LEO. Whatever we began at the NEW MOON on October 15th is now in the process of being released to prepare for the next NEW MOON/NEW BEGINNING on November 13th.

I can only hope that we (no matter what our political leaning) will be able to release our anxiety and learn to let go our insistence that we are right and anyone who believes differently is wrong. Ah, I can dream, can’t I?

Keep in mind, there are no easy answers. The world is not black and white!

Are you at a crossroad in your life? Are your circumstances other than what you expected?

We can meet for an individual consultations (Burlington, Vermont), by telephone, or on SKYPE!

Life Transitions Require New Perspectives!

It is my goal to empower you in the exploration of the past, present and future of your life.

Let's talk. There is so much to learn and understand.
