This Post tells you about the value of studying your Incarnational Life Purpose which we identify in my Astrology Mini Readings and Astrology Mini Courses that I offer to work with you to develop perception and understanding about this key facet of your life.
Together, we can understand your life better in relation to its purpose. My Astrology mini-Reading or Astrology Mini-Course can help you to prioritise, strategize and direct your life according to its purpose. You can expertly learn your incarnational life purpose. You can heal and empower yourself.
These Astrology Mini Readings and Astrology Mini Course actually straddle both western and Vedic astrology. And this will be done in a way tailored to your needs, whether you are a beginner in one or in both of these pathways, or an expert.
Within Vedic astrology, the whole of our chart depicts our incarnational life purpose, of course, but quintessentially, that great purpose is defined by the position of the Nodes of the Moon in our birth chart. The Nodes of the Moon are said to have a sort of demon energy. They are the eclipse points. The North Node is called Rahu. The South Node, always opposite it, is called Ketu. Because they are eclipse energies, the Nodes of the Moon are cut off from connection with the divine energies of the Sun and the Moon and other planets, but because vedic Astrology is tantric, it can of course supremely use this eclipse energy to help us spiritually to find light out of darkness, and discover our incarnational life purpose thereby!
So, we define our incarnational life purpose in Vedic Astrology in terms of the positions of the Nodes of the Moon in our Vedic birth chart: by House, by Sign, by planets aspecting the Nodes, and of course applying all the vastness of the techniques of vedic astrology to this task; not forgetting also using the position of the Nodes of the moon in the infinitely valid and wonderful 27-sign Lunar Zodiac of Vedic Astrology as well: the 27 Nakshatras. It is also supremely helpful and necessary to understand your Atmakaraka planet: the ‘soul indicator’ in your Vedic Birth Chart, and we develop great understanding what this means.
In Western Astrology, the definition of our incarnational life purpose offered by the branch of Western Astrology called Evolutionary Astrology. So, in Western Evolutionary Astrology too, the positions of the Nodes of the Moon: the North Node and the South Node, are key to understanding how our past lives manifest in this life and show us the lessons and life purpose our Soul chose this time. Again, our incarnational life purpose is analysed according to the Houses, Signs and aspects to the Nodes in our birth chart, with a special emphasis on planets square the nodes as a ‘missed step’ of learning in previous life. Pluto is also very important in this study. Western astrology depicts how we will experience our life purpose psychologically, whereas vedic Astrology depicts it in terms of the circumstances we will attract at birth and in unfoldment through time in our lives, including what sort of personality this will attract, but recognising that that personality is not ultimately real. We need a personality. But it is just a boat to get us to the other side of the river. In this analogy, the other side of the river is our enlightened perception of our incarnational life purpose, and indeed our enlightened perception of the way in which the nature of material reality, our mind, emotions and consciousness are all to be understood. Western astrology makes such wonderful and useful contributions as psychodynamic astrology: psychodynamic astrology’s insights into our egoic psychological makeup. You can learn to use such worthwhile techniques as psychosynthesis, psychosynthesis roleplay and individuation. You can gain lightning illumination from ‘Nature v Nurture’ analysis. It is so valuable also to work out the message of western ‘evolutionary astrology’ on the effects of previous lives on our psychological drives, and on our egoic psychology.
North Node and South Node: Rahu and Ketu:
The teaching is that the South Node is where we land in this life from the lessons left over from our previous life, which our Soul chose for us to work with this time. Ketu is thus seen as the ‘camp of the occupying army’. Rahu, the North Node, by contrast, is seen as the direction our soul throws us in this life: the direction of the lessons we are here to learn. Rahu is thus the advancing army. Now, the point of this image, is that both of these Nodes, Ketu and Rahu, they are both demon energies. The energy of Rahu is perforce driven and obsessional, this is the energy needed to impel us across our chart to get to the goal of lessons learned! But in fact, Rahu’s energies are depicted as surrounded by the smoke of illusions and they can manifest very malefically as bad gurus, etc! So, we have to purify the energy of Rahu, if we are ever to arrive at the destination he points to!
The energy of Ketu is different. Ketu dissolves or ruins what he touches, but for spiritual benefits, gains and purposes, if only we can see his shocking sudden revelations rightly! Ketu’s energy is intense and glaring, warrior-like and inhuman.
So, I hope I have conveyed to you the great benefit of incarnational life purpose study from this tiny slice of example. You can learn in depth about your own personal very important, truly important Incarnational Life Purpose. It is obviously such an important question to learn to understand. Can we always learn to understand it in one lifetime? Well, having a Mini Reading or doing my Mini-Course will certainly help you greatly. The question under focus is: Why are you here? Yes: You personally!
My Astrology Mini-Readings and Mini Courses are powerful, caring and deeply learned. They are such good value! Whether you have just basic astrological knowledge, or whether you are highly proficient in astrological techniques in Vedic astrology and/or Western Astrology, this ‘Incarnational Life Purpose’ Astrology Mini-Reading or Mini Course gives you such a blessed and needed opportunity to take an in-depth study on the crucial and central theme in your life. I am well used to working with people who are highly trained in astrological techniques, as well as those who are pretty-well beginners. Genuinely, I can take your study to any depth you wish to go to at this stage.
So, how exactly do we do that? Well, astrological perception is of little use unless it is geared to and linked to healing and Empowerment techniques.
So, the Healing approaches I personally use include vision journeying, art work, embodiment, shamanic healing and Emotional Freedom Technique to provide healing and transformation.
I work in conjunction with my partner Maggie Pashley who offers a vast range of worldwide healing modalities, and you can work face to face with both of us at our Healing Centre and airbnb in the West of Ireland.
Actually, the supreme perception of both Vedic Astrology and Western Astrology does need to be used as a Gateway to Healing and Empowerment.
So, for this reason, in all my worldwide courses and readings, I always offer gateways of healing and empowerment to deal with the perceptions about your life that Vedic astrology so wonderfully offers.
