I was lucky enough today to have a friend
who is studying astrology
read my chart.
I have been wary of having my chart read,
because I have wondered
if the person who might read my chart
really knew her stuff.
I think by that I mean
that although a person might know about moons and planets
and the like,
my background as a therapist tells me
the astrologer should be attuned to emotions
and spirituality as much as to
the astrological facts.
(Maybe that shows my ignorance about astrology.
Perhaps what I was looking for
is assumed in anyone who has a background in astrology.)
But I needed to be sure.
Today, the perfect person told me about my chart.
I was pretty astounded at how 'on the money'
her information was about me.
Kind of like that old Don Mclean/Roberta Flack song:
"As if she found my letters and read each one aloud".
Well, this is what I learned today:
It is essential that I balance myself with 'moon energy'.
Female energy. Creative, playful, resting, being-still energy.
Listening to myself as carefully as I listen to others.
And tonight, as I was leaving work,
there she was.
Making a silver path across the river.
