In our TrueHeartWork with both individuals and couples, Ingrid and I make extensive use of astrology. So, first, what is astrology? Or to be more precise, what is our approach to astrology? As we use it, astrology provides an insight into the inner workings of the human psyche, in the broadest meaning of an overused word. An individual’s birth chart reveals a wealth of information about the “internal wiring” of that person at a range of levels from the conscious to the unconscious, and even to supra-conscious levels that might perhaps be called soul. Therefore, we see astrology as a tool to gain an understanding of how an individual mind works.
We are all born with our True Heart. From the moment of conception and before, our True Heart existed, not yet made manifest. A heart that knew all it was destined to experience in this lifetime. All the joys and sorrows, the trials and the triumphs, the many and multifaceted lessons of a natural life.
A life well lived is a life lived to this Heart Truth. A life experienced to the full, connected to the universal spirit. Sadly, as we go through life, we often lose that connection, consciously or unconsciously limiting our experience to stories we hear and beliefs we pick up along the way. Some of us go for years on end without ever connecting in…
And yet, we all know moments when the magic happens, and we instantly know who we are, are at peace with ourselves. Moments of deep creativity, of intense passion, of real living surface in our lives before we sink back into the old story, the leaden belief.
