why did I get into astrology?
From the time I was a small child, I did what was expected of me. I studied hard in school, got a bachelor's degree in anthropology and a master's degree in public health, studied computer science, and worked long hours at corporate jobs. I stayed current in the technical worlds of computers and hybrid/electric vehicles and volunteered for various causes. But, it always felt like there was something else I should've been doing.
All my life I'd wanted to explore esoteric wisdom and ancient cultures. Where were the answers to my questions about the universe, life, death, sickness, people's behavior, and world events? Then came medical problems, which sometimes didn't respond to conventional medicine. I tried holistic healing and energy work. I was familiar with western religion after attending several churches, but my questions about life and life after death weren't answered. I studied eastern religions, including Hinduism and Tibetan Buddhism, and practiced Light Body and Kriya Yoga meditation.
While a few of my health problems still didn't improve much, my experiences introduced me to wonderful teachers and greater spiritual awareness.
Sacred Star astrology has answered my questions
I studied western astrology for 20 years, and read astrology books by noted astrologers such as Robert Hand, Donna Cunningham, Liz Greene, Howard Sasportas, Noel Tyl, Dane Rudhyar, and Bernadette Brady. I read about astrology online, looked at charts posted online with interpretations, and signed up for newsletters, blogs, and podcasts. I wanted to understand my life better so I had several astrology readings with western astrologers, but some parts of my natal chart didn't seem to apply to me. When I did chart readings for family, friends, colleagues, and strangers, the information was well received. However, I wasn't comfortable that certain constellations in western astrology were labeled "weak" or that the influence of some planets and stars was regarded as "angry," "malefic," or "evil."
In western astrology, my sun was in Leo and I had Sagittarius rising and a Sagittarius Moon. My chart was full of fire from the dazzling, fiery Sun Lion, the trailblazing Archer, and an ardent Moon.
That western chart didn't seem to be me. I live for the night. As a child, I pushed my bed under the bedroom window at night so I could lie in bed and gaze up at the Moon until I couldn't stay awake any longer. My greatest love in nature is a peaceful, glowing Moon in a dark, starry sky. Water is my home and creatures from the ocean realm are special to me.
It wasn't until I had a chart reading with a wonderful sidereal sacred star astrologer, Ken Robinson, that my chart came alive for me. During that reading, I was amazed by Ken's unusual insight into my life and spiritual journey. I felt supported by the information he brought into the reading from the sky beings. I've studied intensively with Ken since that day. Sidereal sacred star astrology integrates intuition and input from the sky beings and provides deep revelations. When I do chart readings now, people are surprised by the information we find in their charts and confirm it with comments such as "How did you know, we haven't talked about that!"
My sidereal chart reveals that I'm a Cancer Sun sign with Scorpio rising and a Scorpio Moon. This chart describes me. Here my Sun lives in the House of the Moon, his warm, golden rays tipped with the silver of moonlight. Now I understand my love of night, my deep affection for the gentle Moon, and my fascination with the watery depths.
I'm aware of Uranus in my Gemini eighth house energizing my whole chart, and Jupiter in my fourth house of Aquarius sensitizing me to vibrations on the physical, spiritual, and cosmic levels.
In sacred star astrology, I've discovered the keys to understanding the self and the soul's path. The support and knowledge I find in this astrology is rooted in the sky beings - the planets and stars - and ancient indigenous wisdom.
