Blog Psychodynamic Astrology Readings 3 – Positive and Negative Meaning in your Life

Blog Psychodynamic Astrology Readings 3 – Positive and Negative Meaning in your Life

Life can seem such a battle.

Life can seem such a battle.

‘Positive’ and ‘Negative’ are the terms used to describe astrological phenomena that are seen in your birth astrology or in your predictive astrology.

These terms used to describe the energies of the Planets, Signs, Houses, and Aspects and their interactions with each other.

Life can seem such a battle dealing with one thing after another. But what do these terms really mean?

To take an example, let’s look at the possible manifestations of the aspect: Mercury conjunct Mars which is in the heavens as this Post is being written.

+              the power of resolution or determination. Love of discussion or argument. The ability to judge. Practical disposition. Skill or dexterity. Quickness at repartee. Impressive speaking. Retaliation.

–            rashness, exaggeration. Quarrel. Grumbling. Fault-finding. Obstinacy and willfulness. Irritability. Nervousness. The utilization of other people’s ideas for one’s own benefit.

BIOLOGICAL: the motor-nervous system. Spastic paralysis. Nerve irritation. An increased sensitivity of reflex action

SOCIOLOGICAL: the critic. The speaker in a discussion group

PROBABLE MANIFESTATIONS:

+                 achieving success through spirit of enterprise and power of determination

–                  getting involved in disputes or controversies or law suits. Bringing about disputes.

The point is that all energies can be experienced as either ‘Good’ or ‘Bad’ depending on the individual’s view and insight, depending on their level of experience, depending on their level of awareness or enlightenment.

Looking back on situations where we deemed the manifestation of an energy to be Negative it’s possible that we may later see it as having some Positive attributes contained within it.  The developmental stage of the individual has much to do with how they perceive events and feelings.

Manifestations of the energies can also occur on many levels, such as Social, Biological, and Psychological.  A combination of what is seen as Positive and Negative can arise simultaneously and also at different times in a person’s life. The energies simply indicate where opportunities for opening ourselves to a better awareness of our capabilities – and greater self-understanding is possible. Even as a result of bad experiences we can learn a lot, though we often may rely on the teaching and help of others to be able to do this.

Aspects in the birth chart such as conjunction, sextile, trine for example are generally categorised into ‘Harmonious’ and aspects such as conjunction, opposition, square, quincunx and semi-sextile are generally categorised as  ‘Challenging’. The Harmonious aspects are interpreted with more of a positive angle than the Challenging which is often seen as Negative. But care should be taken with this general view.

The Negative interpretation of the Challenging or stressful aspects as being malefic is due to the tension inherent in the energy dynamic which can cause anxiety and suffering and it’s difficult to ignore them. But this energy emphasises where we need to become more aware and responsible for the quality of our actions and where there’s potential for a heightening of our level of consciousness and understanding. We therefore see that these Challenging aspects can be ultimately stimulating us to see where we can achieve something in life, so there can be a Positive interpretation of this. This is such an important point to understand.

The so-called Challenging aspects are strongly activating and character-building, but they also can be the cause of aggression of some kind.

So much depends on our level of awareness.
And courage may be needed to overcome them.

Some people may be stimulated by challenges more than others therefore they may not be affected so adversely. An overview of the rest of the chart is needed to see in what way this can be handled to benefit the person involved.

Positive attributes are more often than not given to the ‘Harmonious’ aspects or chart aspect shapes in our charts due to their giving a pleasurable, easy feeling, but this feeling can become a habitual or addictive pattern of behaviour which if not worked on may mean the loss of the energy or even loss of the talent inherent in the flow.

For example the chart aspect shape called a Grand Trine, can indicate a particular talent (depending on where the planets involved are situated). But it’s often the case that the talent goes unrecognised if its use hasn’t been required in a person’s life, or if there is a laziness with regard to using it. In these cases, the talent can be lost. Trines are lazy aspects. They need to be consciously understood and worked on.

So these free flowing Blue aspects can also cause a lot of pain just like the Red challenging aspects if we become stuck in old ways that have become too comfortable. They are part of our character and want to be recognised so in their own way they can be very demanding.

Let’s look at the signs: The signs in the Western birth chart are each ruled by one or more of the planets i.e. they exemplify the energy of that planet in their manifestation.

An Aries character, for instance, is ruled by Mars. If the Sun is placed in Aries in your birth chart, here could indicate a fiery energy needing to express itself in an action orientated, adventurous, or dominant kind of way which they would enjoy and find those attributes ‘positive’, ‘beneficial’ and ‘easy to live with’. Others might be appalled at your ‘me first’ assertion of course!

Yet a Pisces Sun’s dreamy and easy going  nature could experience Aries/Mars energy as ‘Negative’, ‘over powering’  and ‘exhausting’ and ‘challenging to be around’.

Having Mars in the sign Cancer in your birth chart would be seen as inharmonious as this would be again a ‘fire with water’ steamy combination of energies. But even though the Mars energy may not fit easily with watery Cancer and could bring a depletion of energy and may dampen the spirit to action, it could be harnessed in the way of directing the energy towards protecting and caring for the family where it may be able to express itself more easily.

This all of course also depends on the other dynamics going on in the chart.

In Predictive Astrology, Transits to natal planets and their aspects etc. can act as trigger points for the energies they hit, stimulating our conscious awareness of them.

The important point is that our level of comprehension of the energy they bring, whether they are manifesting in the outer or inner world or both, brings our free will into play as to how we view or use the energy. The more insight we develop, the more free will we develop.

It is the Higher spirit, the Universal energy, ‘God within us’ that is urging us to grow and our view of  ‘fortunate’ or ‘unfortunate’ is not inherent in the energy – it’s just a view.

All this reminds me of a tale I read many years ago which I love: The Parable of the Chinese Farmer

Once there was a Chinese farmer who worked his poor farm together with his son and their horse. When the horse ran off one day, neighbours came to say, “How unfortunate for you!” The farmer replied, “Maybe yes, maybe no.”

When the horse returned, followed by a herd of wild horses, the neighbours gathered around and exclaimed, “What good luck for you!” The farmer stayed calm and replied, “Maybe yes, maybe no.”

While trying to tame one of wild horses, the farmer’s son fell, and broke his leg. He had to rest up and couldn’t help with the farm chores. “How sad for you,” the neighbours cried. “Maybe yes, maybe no,” said the farmer.

Shortly thereafter, a neighbouring army threatened the farmer’s village. All the young men in the village were drafted to fight the invaders. Many died. But the farmer’s son had been left out of the fighting because of his broken leg. People said to the farmer.

“What a good thing your son couldn’t fight!” “Maybe yes, maybe no,” was all the farmer said.

Everything is connected to the intelligent Universal energy, but humans are very rarely able to perceive the divine meaning in the order of things.

Like the Yin and Yang, everything encompasses both light and dark; the balance of doing and being, positive and negative.

For existence it seems both are needed, and the place of peace within that is the acceptance and working with this divine order, although we may not be able to perceive it’s full meaning.

Some practices such as Buddhist Tantra practices, Shamanism and Paganism are generally aimed at the realisation of the deeper meaning, acceptance of and working with the energies. Astrology if expertly read can provide a very clear picture to use in the great work of developing our enlightenment and understanding our life.

This material was written for the Enlightened Astrology Course by Yvonne Lawton, and my sincere thanks goes to Yvonne. It is a privilege to work with her.

Trained astrological guidance on what meaning to place on your life scripts and the events in your life is utterly invaluable. Of course it has to be expert and it has to be positive and empowering.

It can be coupled with counselling sessions. Or it can be healed by releasing bodily held distress which the existence of these cut off planets in your birth chart points to.

Blog Psychodynamic Astrology Readings 2 – Nature versus Nurture – How does this affect Love in your Life?

Blog Psychodynamic Astrology Readings 2 – Nature versus Nurture – How does this affect Love in your Life?

Great value can be received from an Astrology reading that includes psychodynamic Astrology.

One of the techniques of psychodynamic astrology is to interpret what your nature is and then compare this to a statement of the effect of your nurture.

What are we? Are we our nature? or are we the result of our nurture?

In astrology, the chart of our nature is the birth chart often called the ‘Radix chart’. The chart of our nurture is the House chart.

In our Radix or birth chart, note that the signs areof equal size. This is because ‘planets in signs’ are deemed to be our nature: our inherited nature.

In our House chart, however, note that by contrast the houses are of equal size. This is because houses show the effect of our environment in our life, and of all our environments, our earliest environment or our ‘nurture’ is of course the key influence overlying our nature.

Sometimes our ‘nurture’ or our upbringing (especially our earliest upbringing), improves what our nature offers us.

But other times we find that our nurture/upbringing skews what we are away from our nature, sometimes in a terribly difficult and major way.

In my astrology readings, I include a nature versus nurture analysis.

In our example, this person has a romantic and visionary Neptune-Venus aspect in their birth chart which is their nature. See chart 1 below. Venus is a prime indicator for love in your life.

However, as you can see from this person’s House Chart which is the chart of nurture/upbringing (chart 2, below), this person’s earliest environment has brought Venus into an angry impatient square (90 deg aspect) with Uranus. Not good: Uranus tends to soar above relationships, always wanting the new. In mythology, Uranus ate his children.

In fact it is very helpful insight to have your birth chart and your House chart compared. This way you can be shown  how they will make you live your life.

The comparison is done in terms of modalities (cardinal, fixed and mutable) and also Elements (Fire, Earth, Air and Water). Chart 3, below,  is the comparison Table for the person described in this example.

As you can see from the Table, this person has been made far Cardinal: far more impatient (for love and to be noticed) than is their nature.
They have also been made to dig their heels in (more Fixed).
And they have been made unconfident about trying out anything different from their habitual patterns (mutability reduced).
Their Fire has been put out and their Water increased leaving them to dwell in hurt sensitivity but also become a lot more sensitive and psychic.

‘Nature versus Nurture’ issues need to be made clear, and their meaning needs to be understood, if we are to heal our lives. It is as simple as that

Trained astrological guidance on this sort of thing is invaluable. Of course it has to be expert and it has to be positive and empowering.

It can be coupled with counselling sessions. Or it can be healed by releasing bodily held distress which the existence of these cut off planets in your birth chart points to.

Blog Psychodynamic Astrology Readings 1 – Cut off Planets

Blog Psychodynamic Astrology Readings 1 – Cut off Planets

Great value can be received from an Astrology reading that includes psychodynamic Astrology.

One of the techniques of psychodynamic astrology is to interpret the meaning of planets that are ‘cut off’ from the rest of the chart.

In our first example, this person has a cut off romantic and visionary Neptune-Venus aspect, indeed is pointed into Earth Spirituality too, because Neptune is near the IC the bottom of the chart. The chart is shown below.

But this beautiful aspect is in practice ‘cut off’ from the rest of his chart by the red Saturn-Mars square aspect which is implacable, unremitting hard work.

In our second example, this person even has a ‘cut off Sun’, where Sun in the birth chart is the divine charioteer who directs and controls the chariot of self. The chariot is cut off from the charioteer in her case. Again, the chart is shown below.

Note that her Sun is considered ‘cut off’ by the constant irritation of the nagging Chiron-Venus semi-sextile which is all about a wound to value, a wound to acceptance of the body, also manifesting as the ability to be loving to people/situations where most would not: the person trained to endlessly help others.

These cut of aspects need to be made clear and their meaning needs to be understood, if we are to heal our lives. It is as simple as that

Trained astrological guidance on this sort of thing is invaluable. Of course it has to be expert and it has to be positive and empowering.

It can be coupled with counselling sessions. Or it can be healed by releasing bodily held distress which the existence of these cut off planets in your birth chart points to. An example of a healing approach is my partner Maggie Pashley at www.bodycodehealing.co.uk

Chart for Saturday 24th May 2015 : A lot of Creative Power being offered to you!

Chart for Saturday 24th May 2015 : A lot of Creative Power being offered to you!

I see a lot of creative energies in the chart for this Bank Holiday Saturday in UK.

There is an angry Sun-Mars-Mercury conjunction, which could mean lots of arguing and fighting. But it need not do so. This energy’s higher meaning can give you good, directed communication where you clearly and successfully express what you need to express: your essence. Remember, the ideal is that we can choose to see the higher potential in everything coming our way: hard though that often is.

There’s an expansive and mind-enlarging Moon-Jupiter conjunction.

And note that the Sun-Mars-Mercury conjunction and the Moon-Jupiter conjunction are actually two corners of a powerful chart aspect shape called a Yod: a finger of God.

A Yod is a very long thin triangle with a blue line or sextile (60 deg) for tis base, and two long green aspects making up the other two sides. These are Quincunxes or 150 deg aspects pointing to the Apex Planet of the Yod triangle. The Finger of god is pointing at the Apex Planet

So in the case of the chart for this Saturday, the base of the Triangle is the blue line: the sextile aspect between the above two conjunctions, but the apex planet is Pluto.

Pluto is a very deep almost violent energy of death and rebirth and creativity: remember the Pluto-Persephone myth. Pluto, Lord of hades saw Persephone the daughter of the Earth Goddess innocently picking narcissi, so he erupted out of Hades his realm and claimed her and told her she was now his Queen.

So the higher manifestation of this energy certainly includes great force for creative expression.

Well, that’s certainly how I’m using it this morning!

Tuatha de Danaan – A New Novel on the Way

Tuatha de Danaan – A New Novel on the Way

cover Marion Dowd The archaeology of caves in IrelandI drew an Ogham Few this morning – and got Hazel.
I took this to be major and fortunate and to mean ‘Inspiration’.
I feel this is a major ‘step out time’ for me now.
I have been working very long hours mostly on Vedic Astrology for some months, but last week I had a Rune Reading which started with Tir which means Victory, and yesterday I recorded an access document for my Rune Course to make visionary contact with the Norse Goddess Freya and a drumming journey to meet Her, and these ‘broke the dam’.
So drawing Hazel this morning confirms I am inspired to now bring through into the form realm my next novel which I have been researching for months.
As a final step of preparation which I will make concurrent to doing the first pieces of writing of the novel, I shall start with composing access guides to the Gods and Goddesses of the ancient Irish such as the Dagdha, the Morrigan, Dian Cecht and Airmid, and doing drumming journeys to meet each of them.
Another big part of the preparation for the novel has each of them.
Another big part of the preparation for the novel has been reading Marion Dowd’s wonderful new book: The Archaelology of Caves in Ireland, a fascinating un-put-downable glimpse into the world of the Mesolithic, Neolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age Irish people (the Medieval section next). For some reason it has totally gripped me to read Marion Dowd’s learned, elegant and very human writing of their material culture, their treatment of their dead and their use of caves as entries to the spirit realms.
So now my novel comes into form.
The novel is about going back in time the world of the Tuatha de Danaan, and it has now finally taken shape in my mind.
Details of this inspired worldwide distance learning course which includes possibility for visionary contact with the Gods and Goddess of the Tuatha de Danaan appear on these websites:
