I have taught many students over the years and a percentage of them have gone on to become busy astrologers in their own right.
But some learners still can’t get going by themselves. They linger in no man’s land between hobbyist astrologer and taking their calling seriously.
Students often say to me, “I’ll never be as good as you” which in itself opens many questions.
To my mind you should measure yourself against you, and not me, or anyone else.
In fact, as soon as you make the connection that it is your fate, your journey will become clearer.
Start creating your own path in your astrological life. Don’t aspire to emulate other astrologers. You have one thing different to offer which is your unique perspective. This originality is shown by the planets, signs, houses and aspects in your natal chart.
You know your chart is different to everyone else’s even to other astrologers’s charts.
This means you have your own path to walk on your astrological journey. You have your personal destiny to fulfill. This clearly goes as far as how you use and interpret astrology and what it says to you.
Your heroes are your Sun
When I started to learn Astrology the great astrologers of the day were almost as Gods and Goddesses to me. I knew nothing and the more I learned the more I realized I still knew nothing in comparison to them.
I kept going and one day something special happened. I started to form an inkling of what my message was going to be and how I wanted to put astrology out there with my individual stamp on it.
The initial ideas were not clear. They were a bit fuzzy and tended to hang about on the edges of my mind as though waiting to be invited in. Eventually I could not ignore them any more and I consciously gave them my attention.
New fashions in astrology start with one person’s ideas that become followed by many.
You could be that one person who has an idea, theory or technique which becomes all the rage in Astrological circles. But first you have to live your life in line with the energies in your chart and as stated this also means doing your own thing in your astrology.
