Astrological insight

September 26, 2010

I just happened upon notes that I had taken when I visited a very talented astrologer back in 2001 in Los Angeles. I had never met this man before, and he didn’t ask me anything personal about myself before he turned on the tape and began speaking. I remember clearly the visit with him, but had no recollection of anything he had spoken of before I opened this file today. Wow. That was 9 years ago – I was still working on my doctorate, separated but not yet divorced, was still raising my youngest daughter. I could not have told you what I would be doing after that period. I had mostly worked in classrooms before, and probably assumed I would continue that path.

Reading his words it is as if he had a periscope into my future, which I guess an astrological chart is. He said I would be working for myself, I would be travelling extensively, that I would be doing dream work and would be really good at it, that I would need extensive time alone (at the time I had barely had a day alone in my whole life, now I live alone on a mountaintop), that I would be working to assist others in healing and transformation processes … on and on he went, describing changes in my own personality (post-transformation process) that I did not at all foresee. At the end I mentioned briefly to him that I was divorcing. He described the dynamics of my relationship and the reasons for the breakdown of it in precise explanations. At the time I was merely confused about it all, now I look back and see how extraordinarily and extremely insightful he was.

I have talked to some who think that astrology is a bunch of hooey. Everyone has a right to their opinion, but I challenge those who doubt to see a good astrologer, see what they learn in having their chart read, and then let it stand the test of time. It is mind blowing. I don’t believe in pre-destination, not at all. But I believe in patterns that are written in the stars, and then it is up to us what we do with them. This reading helped me as much today as it did 9 1/2 years ago. I don’t feel I’m in an accidental universe, I feel I am part of a plan and find it very reassuring and helpful.

Ye skeptics, give it a try!
