Welcome! Life is a journey; astrology helps you read your map

Astrology isn't a religion or even a belief system; it's a tool, something like a very sophisticated personality theory that's rooted in the archetypes of the collective unconscious. You can interpret a chart like a dream or a poem. Dreams and poems aren't "real," but they can contain illuminating wisdom.

For example, after a very busy holiday season with many rotating shifts of guests and dinners, one woman dreamed that she was locked in a small closet with the most obnoxious of her in-laws, and the in-law wanted to put a grand piano in the closet with them. Did that really happen? No. Do you think one meaning of the dream was that this woman had been feeling crowded by her lengthy procession of visitors?

I think so, too.
By the same token, your birth chart is not astronomically "real," because it's drawn as if the Sun, Moon, and planets all revolved around the Earth. We know better nowadays. But we can still interpret that drawing of your birth chart in ways that are just as meaningful to you as our besieged woman's dream is to her.

Each chart is so complex that it's virtually a universe in itself. Your universe. Come explore it with me.

The Revolution Will Be Televised Tonight

The Mountain Astrologer
June / July 2017 issue
This month read the magazine article by Jodie Forrest:

 The Revolution Will Be Televised Tonight with The Mountain Astrologer magazine.

Two current TV series reflect many motifs of the ongoing Uranus–Pluto square, which lasts until March, 2020: the medieval fantasy world of George R. R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones (GoT) on HBO; and USA Network’s modern, techno-apocalyptic psychological thriller, Mr. Robot (MR). 

The shows’ settings differ tremendously. Their themes, however, come straight from today’s Uranus–Pluto square, with a dash of Neptune’s transits of its own sign, Pisces, on the side.
