I’ve been in the most pleasant of rabbit holes, one after the other. It may be the Mercury retrograde, the potent dreams, but it also is most likely that since this New Year I’ve been interviewing people about themselves and looking at their natal charts while I do it. It’s my way of going to Universe School. I started this with the intention of learning more about the planetary placements as they manifest for different people. I’ve been doing one to three a day most days and having a really transformational time. Learning tons. People have been more than gracious to be researched. I’m getting more practiced at holding space.
A few planetary signatures have popped up in extraordinary frequency, meaning:
a) those are the placements most likely to volunteer for this kind of an interview project
b) I’m vibrating at a similar frequency to those placements at this moment in my life
c) synchronicity is my lesson plan at Universe School and I’m super down with it and already formulating ideas on how to write about these placements which was the reason for doing this project in the first place
Meanwhile, my heart is happy and expanding because this project has allowed me to recognize in a more empowered way that I just like to go deep with people. And that I get to do that. And that it’s enjoyable for others and satisfying needs of being heard or of having the space to process, or the space to be seen. More and more I’m feeling empowered to respect my own desires and wishes because of people in my sphere who have inspired me, and also that is the nature of the kind of work I do as a spiritual counselor, soul worker, astrologer. I’m starting to see it play out in a new way in my own life.
I went from having free time to not really having free time anymore, and that was maybe one of the most fruitful lessons from Universe School – events would fall into place or get canceled in magically perfect ways… like I’d be needing more time and the person I was supposed to meet with would too. Entire stretches of days have gone by where I am running and there’s not really time to do anything else but what there is to attend to (work and any shimmering opportunity). Lots of community. Lots of gratitude.
I am not going to actively schedule more interviews for now – I’m booked for a little bit, and then I’ve got a trip planned. I’m going to take the time to brainstorm some ideas about what my next steps are. But when the interview project continues, I will notify you all of when I’m seeking more volunteers! I think that this interview work is going to be a consistent part of my practice because it has been mutually energizing. People have enjoyed being interviewed a lot and I can feel myself learning how to hold sessions more and more. Healing and medicine, and what those are really made of, is much of what I think about these days. I’m finding a passion in discovering the medicine of any given event, opportunity, planet, sign, etc – and how that can be transmitted.
The drama of a writer is one of which they are too busy living to write. The theater of the stars has been all captivating and exquisite here in my life. I am sensing that at some point I will make the time to write, but this is me more or less explaining why I’ve been quieter on the blog outside of the forecasts. I’m thinking. Something is cooking. Stay tuned. I mean, the other aspect of this is that my research is coming to life, and when this happens it gets BIG for me. It takes a while for it to percolate.
You can still book astrology readings with me. Or subscribe to the forecasts, of course. There’s lots in there, each week, word and star manna crafted with love for you!
P.S. I’m born under a Mercury rx! That might be my sabbatical or something. Or like a non-birthday party in Alice in Wonderland. Yes – that.
