On astrology, free will, and mindfulness

Soul Stars Astrology

I seek clarity in navigating astrology’s symbolic representations. The symbols can be a challenge to navigate in a way that is reasonable and fair to each human being’s potential because of the assumptions we too easily put upon those symbols (and the person as a result). This is especially true if free will is disregarded or given too little leeway, because we desire astrology to be as some replacement law.

Astrology is not a dictator insisting that “You must ….!” It is a still small voice of intuition that influences with a whisper in subconscious suggestions.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
