Astrology is a complex science that can be scary for many people. The scariness comes from the idea that you have no control over your life and that free will is non-existent. That’s a whole different blog post (coming soon), but I wanted to address the idea and fact that the planets don’t control us, rather, we influence their movements.
If you think about it, if we choose what kind of life we are going to incarnate into, then that must mean, the planets have to acommodate this, by aligning a certain precise way the moment we are born, and continue to play their cosmic chess game in the sky.
I believe it is our range of consciousness that determines the movements of the planets. The intensity we experience here on earth directly affects the heavenly bodies up above. I don’t believe the planets force us to experience certain events in our lives, but rather, as we evolve the planets help to facilitate this. I’ve noticed when I have gone through hard times in my life, the cosmic energies at the time were very gentle and soft. Of course when we’re ready to experience struggle- the planets will make it happen up there too.
Everything is a mirror of us. The further people have moved away from source, the higher the cancer rates (people are literally rotting away). The more fiery people are, the hotter the weather. The more open people have been about taboos, the more naked society has become (the rise of nudity). The more we search for meaning in our lives, the more awakened we have become (the rise of mainstream spirituality).
Next time you dread that planetary alignment or “bad” transit, pay attention to what you’re thinking because that is the magnet to the planets.
And so it is.
