One of the most fascinating discoveries I made about astrology is that the Signs contain essential higher learnings of development and Planets have higher octaves of vibration.
From my perspective, this awareness is one of the most valuable benefits of astrology, as it fuels our choices from a space of conscious intention.
For an example of a planet, if we look at some generalized meanings of the planet Saturn, we find descriptions associated with authority, the father, responsibility, discipline, tradition, approval, recognition, achievement. If we examine closely the essence of these descriptions what is being asked of us, is to find our own inner voice of truth, to source our own authority and approval. From this place we are in alignment with the highest octave of learning that Saturn wishes to teach us. It shifts the emphasis away from anything outside of ourselves and offers the joy of wholly taking responsibility and authorship of our life. Feels liberating and empowering to me!
For a sign example, if we look at some generalized meanings of the sign Virgo, we find descriptions associated with the analytical process of the learning mind, perfection, analysis, process, everyday work and service of our duty our dharma, healing, criticism, statistics, judgement, discrimination and sacrifice. If we examine closely the essence of these descriptions what is being asked of us is; yes, there is a place for such qualities of analysis, exactness and perfection to use in our work that proves to be really valuable, however, not when in the end it equates to criticism, blame and judgement. The higher learning shift available to us comes from using our ability of perfectionism for compassion and understanding, thats when it becomes true service and healing. Also, being open to see the perfection of “what is” occurring in the moment rather than how our minds think it should be in order for it to be perfect. Often times with the Virgo energy we are also learning the difference between sacrifice and service; if we are sacrificing ourselves, thats not true service, nor is it healing. Doing our work from a place of love and honoring is what heals ourselves and others!
