Living Magic

Awaken the Magic of Your Life

The Profound Journey of Life

Each of our lives is a miraculous journey. We are simultaneously individuals and inseparable expressions of the sacred world that surrounds us. All of us (without exception!) play an invaluable role in the unfolding story of our world. We are each the heros and heroines of our life’s adventure, and our ability to meet and grow through the challenges of life—to develop wisdom, compassion, and effectiveness—is an incredible gift to the world.

Astrology is a powerful way of studying life itself. Our innermost heart is the seat of wisdom. At this level, we intuitively know many fundamental things about how life is. We could think of it as our core common sense. There is only one world, and the life flowing through us and around us has rhythms and cycles that—while often quite different from the way we have been taught to see the world—are intuitively familiar to our common sense.

Many of us feel the pull and push of a purpose calling us. Some of us have made this a conscious life direction; while so many of us either can’t quite put a finger on what exactly it is, or perhaps feel that the inner voice we hear is not supported by those around us. Sometimes events happen in life that throw us for a loop, and we find ourselves lost at sea or suffering from damage to our ship. Sometimes we need some help and support in interpreting the messages the world is sending us. And at some point in our lives, we will find ourselves questioning the whole thing: What’s life ultimately about? How can I liberate myself from my infinite stuck spaces, confusions, and entanglements?

Astrology provides a way to awaken, confirm, and support our inner guidance system. Through it we can better understand the living magic of our existence. Our astrological chart provides something like a karmic mapping of our soul’s DNA—of our habitual patterns, life lessons, role in life, challenges, and potentials. It is a key to our personal treasure chest waiting to be discovered and known, so that we can awaken the sacred energies that compose us, allowing them free rein to manifest for the benefit of ourselves and all those we impact.

There are many things we can explore with the tool of astrology. If we take the analogy of a tree:

  • The birth chart is like the seed, containing our genetic blueprint—our basic configuration—including gifts, challenges, and information about our lot in life.
  • Progressions, releasings, and other timing techniques reveal how the tree will grow over time—the phases of our life, including the rising and falling of periods of interest, focus, or career.
  • Transits provide a look at the weather surrounding the tree, allowing us a way of delving into key events to help us better understanding the forces at play and make better decisions.
