Where On Earth Are You? And Why?

I finally did something I've wanted to do for years... get an astrocartography reading.

An astrocartographer maps out the relationships between Planet Earth and the other planets in our solar system at the time of the client's birth. To me this type of practice is another way of dialoguing with natural/physical/biological intelligence. The completed astrocartography chart shows a person what kinds of support and challenges they are likely to receive when living in various areas on Earth.

I've decided to relocate as a result of my reading.

I'll be heading first into a zone that's a much more wild/natural area than where I live now, and where Pluto's influence is more pronounced in my chart. According to some of the text supplied with my map: "Total alteration and new directions in life can be taken under these lines. Exposure to, and concerns with death, regeneration and mortality are common.... Personal depth is gained, but what is old and outmoded in life will be stripped away, so that complete rejuvenation and rebirth are possible."

Okay, so that's the next year of my life! Time to get down to brass tacks. I know what I need to do in terms of my personal healing. And I know where I'm headed on the other side of this Plutonically inspired journey...

I'm going to one of my Venusian zones: "Here, self perfection and growth encourage relationship... Beauty, sensuality, luxury, money, ease and artistic interests dominate; self esteem and appearance improve. Dangers lie in consumerism, laziness, superficiality, objectification of people and in an immature, make-believe attitude." 

I want the beauty, artistry, and luxury, so I'll need to avoid the dangers.

I have practice in dealing with danger, though of a different sort than the Venusian kind. I've spent much of my life living under the influence of a Saturn line: "Fierce personal independence and perseverance develop in the face of difficulties in health, power struggles, poor finances and solitude... Challenge, maturity and hard work are met and accepted." Yes, that's a great description of a lot of my life, summed up in a few words! I'm ready for something different, and so I'm going to learn a new language and move to a new country to get it.

Many people offer astrocartography readings. I chose to do mine with Elliot Jay Tanzer. I found Elliot to be supportive, thorough and attentive to details.

"When You Gonna Love You?"

I recently had the good fortune to come across this video made by a Tori Amos fan. At the moment, it's helping me find some moments of pleasure in the midst of a lot of pain...
