“A Masked Figure Performs Ritualistic Acts In A Mystery Play” ~ Sabian Symbol 5º Aquarius ~
As my relationship with astrology evolves I am also using this space as a container to explore my passion for visual culture, witchcraft, and writing, as well as a place to offer my astrology readings. I am creating a space for cosmic mystery to be explored and discussed, for commentary on the nature of magic, spirit communication, and the occult. I have always felt that my spirit is on this Earth to assist others in accepting themselves for who they are without judgement, to hold space for people to explore their true self. I am a Capricorn Sun, Taurus Rising, Aries Moon, North Node in Aquarius and Pluto in Scorpio.
My own personal astrological evolution has drawn from many different branches of astrology. My utilization of evolutionary astrology began a couple of years ago and has expanded to include some traditional aspects as well. The Evolutionary Astrology perspective relies upon the placement of Pluto in the natal chart and on the North and South Nodes of the Moon. It delves into past incarnations and patterns that have been on repeat for many lifetimes. Jeffrey Wolf Green and Steven Forrest are credited with pioneering and developing evolutionary astrology methods. My astrological approach draws upon strategies found in their books along with my own personal spiritual experiences of my connection to the divine, witchcraft, and psycology. I integrate the teachings I learned from my teachers at the Portland School of Astrology to create a dynamic approach to understanding the cosmos. Utilizing a mix of a traditional and modern astrological approaches I explore and challenge the ideas of fate and free will through my interpretations of each individual chart.
In looking at the nodal placements in my own chart, the North Node in Aquarius and the South Node in Leo has given me a better understanding of where my soul has been spiritually in past lives and what my soul is driven towards in this current incarnation. I feel we move between cyclical and linear time throughout our lives residing in multiple dimensions at once. This provides an explanation to my linear mind the concepts of where dreaming occurs, the nature of trance, or what a past life memory is. These thought forms also inform my practice of witchcraft and sorcery.
I was born with Pluto in Scorpio, which sets up the context of my past lives. I share this intense placement with other people born during my Pluto generation approximately 1983-1995(Jupiter & the Pluto in Scorpio Generation) As my sun is at 14 degrees Capricorn with Neptune and Saturn on either side. I am just now making it through the transiting Pluto conjunct my natal sun. I have been experiencing this Pluto transit through Capricorn for most of my adult life and will continue to feel it for a while. This transit has deeply taught me about my personal power, recognizing my shadow self, and honoring my identity as a witch. My Saturn return is a year away with Saturn already having entered Capricorn, I feel the effects are in full force already. We are naturally polarized beings, constantly searching for a balance within extremes, astrology is my way of working through this.
