To begin with, Spiritual Astrology is more than “cook-book astrology,” where someone finds out your astrological planets and signs and determines what that means without really getting to know where you are on your [emotional / psycho-spiritual / life-experience-maturity-level] path. Spiritual Astrology is frequency-based astrology which means that it takes the client’s frequency or consciousness into account. When you look at the birth chart, you see a two-dimensional circle that is divided up into twelve sections known as houses. Within these houses are tenanted all the planets of the solar system, including the two lights (the Sun and Moon, which in Western Astrology are basically considered planets too). Therefore we have the Sun, Mercury, Venus, the Moon, Mars and all the way out to Pluto, which is still considered a planet by astrologers. So we take this two dimensional circle, along with its unique aspects and houses and we add the client’s consciousness into the mix. This adds another dimension that no astrology software or astrology website can provide. When major asteroids are added to the mix, the range of possibilities in a birth chart is infinite.
I believe an Astrological birth chart is a reflection of an individual’s gross karmas. What the heck does this mean? What I mean is that we all have energetic bodies, we have psychological habits, mental attitudes and dispositions, but without being born in a human body, we would never be aware of these characteristics in the way we are able to perceive them as humans. So what the heck does that mean? What I am trying to say is that we are actually spiritual beings having a human experience, and being born human creates a unique opportunity to experience a world through the five (or more) senses and to interact with other sentient beings in this world. In Buddhism, there is the belief that the only part of someone which goes from rebirth to rebirth when we die is the subtle consciousness. This subtle consciousness comes into a womb around or shortly after the time of conception and stays with the new body until its elements dissolve and the subtle consciousness must move on to the next one. This is why I suggest that we are spiritual beings having human experiences.
Unfortunately, not many of us recall that we are spiritual beings. Rather, we get caught up in the duality of this world – this is MY body (and it HURTS!), that is YOUR car (and doesn’t it look great?!), this is THEIR money (oh! now I’m jealous). I am apart of the 99 % or the 1 % and they aren’t. We easily get tangled in the web of sensed objects and beings and then we get further entangled in our reactions to these perceived objects. And by getting tangled up in life as it were, we are experiencing manifestation of gross karmas – inner or outer events of a perceivable nature, where more than one individual can affirm to have witnessed or experienced it. However, if we are able to realize that this world is more of a playful dance of vast energy and awareness and less a tangled web of dense, solid objects and / or stick emotions, then we can start to take that soothing deep breath and disengage just a little bit more. When we disengage and move toward equanimity and non-attachment, then we move toward subtler karmas; this disengaging is a step toward spiritual awakening and away from the gross karmas indicated in one’s birth chart.
Therefore, whether you are someone who is pursuing spiritual fulfillment, or someone who is after that dream inheritance (or car, or babe, or stud, or retirement, etc), Spiritual Astrology can meet you where you are and proceed from there.
In future posts, I am going to cover Spiritual Astrology and: Relationships – Who am I really dating?, the Secret of Self-Knowledge and Natal Horoscopes, the Benefits of AstroCartography and Relocation Astrology, All the Intricate Components of Timing Astrology – Transits, Progressions, Solar Arc Directions and More!
