I have always been intrigued by history, science, art and creativity. I believe that most people possess inspirational creative talents but that they have been buried for so long because of the daily grind.
Recently I started to bring some of these people forward and feature their charts in my new section “Featured Charts” (catchy name, yes?) where I provide a high-level astrology interpretation of the chart.
The charts that are featured here are chosen for their owner’s good works, inspiration and creativity (or to be honest because these people interest me).
Who Needs Their Chart Featured?
If you are worn down by work, financial or family demands it can rob you of your inherent spark. It is this spark that I wish to bring alive through reading charts for exactly that scenario.
To find your way back to living your authentic yet creative life. To find your spark.
At the end of the day creative people can look back and say. “I made this” whereas many people in other industries, and boring 9-5 jobs, simply shovel papers, people or money around without making anything.
Now I know all about having a day job or a “Survival job” (one which pays the rent), and trying to launch a creative life on the side. It is not easy.
Your Side Hustle
You may be working your day job but have a side hustle, or you could be of independent means, retired or a housewife and simply need to express yourself through a creative outlet.
All of these situations can be brought forward through a high-level astrology reading when your chart is featured in my Featured Charts section.
I usually work with artists, musicians, photographers, Tarot readers, singers, crafters, dancers, painters, designers, poets, writers, and astrologers. The list goes on.
But the common theme among the majority of my clients is:
They work by themselves.
They have many works in progress (#WIP’s).
They are solopreneurs.
They are not so good at the business of business.
They want time to do their craft and not be consumed by the boring administration.
They live and breathe their creations.
They are one man (or woman) shows.
They have a day job.
Does this sound like you?
I like reading charts for the good folks I have met in my life.
Now and then I like to cast the featured charts of people who are inspirations to us all. I look for those individuals who have made a difference in the lives of others by their ideas, creations and actions. This time I chose Jack Conte the inspiration and creative drive behind Patreon.
I have the birth details of July 13, 1984, San Francisco, California, USA. Because his birth time is unknown (to me) I’ve cast the midday chart.
The high noon time places the nativity halfway through the day and this means that no matter what his actual birth time was we are only a maximum of twelve hours out. Therefore most planets will be in the same positions in the signs.
The only question is the Moon’s sign. If he was born in the morning then the Moon was in Capricorn or if in the afternoon then the Moon was in Aquarius.
You have to ignore the ascendant and the house positions.
If it is a Moon in Capricorn then he will be slightly reserved with his feelings and moods may linger longer than they need. This placement makes it hard to have felt loved in the early years. As an adult, he wants to provide a home environment where mutual respect is key.
With an Aquarius Moon, it brings a cool emotional attitude to life. He will be more inclined to text his feelings or recite poetry to his lady love. This placement suggests he likes many types of cuisine and will experiment in the kitchen and share his offerings with those close to him.
There are four planets in anaretic degrees. This means they are at 29 degrees of their signs. These are planets that are both subdued and yet paused awaiting their conscious revival by Jack himself. They are poised with their potential. As he grows older he can tap into these planets in a meaningful way.
The two artistic planets Venus and Neptune are both anaretic. They are in the quincunx aspect with each other and this suggests he continuously strives to discover the music he likes. It is as if he knows it’s inside himself but it takes time to tease it out and let it fully bloom. He will be constantly adjusting the type of beauty and atmosphere which his music evokes.
The Sun in Cancer shows he has vibrant emotional responses and this can create knee-jerk reactions to many events in his day. Time has to be taken to fully process the mood of the moment before his inspiration can shine.
The final dispositor of Jack’s chart is Mars in Scorpio and this provides him with controlled drive and the desire to challenge the status quo. He will likely compete with himself most of the time as things never seem to be exactly right. This suggests he redoes his efforts frequently until time itself pushes him to release the buried creative expression and give birth to his work.
He is a passionate warrior and will go into battle for things that touch his core. The biggest conflicts may be inside as he struggles to find his path and direction. This can be accomplished by constantly facing the issues close to his heart so he can help others in a meaningful way.
The conjunction of Mars with Saturn brings a steadfast discipline to finish the things he starts. The challenge here is that he may not like what it has become but he will continue to completion.
This man will get better as he gets older. The drive as a young man will slowly but steadily become reined into a special purpose as he grows older. In time he will move from being a generalist to become a specialist. This shift of focus will bring him more personal satisfaction than in the early years.
Art and Music
As the founder of Patreon for the patrons to the arts, the principle sits well with his Venus Neptune aspects and the signs in which both planets find themselves. To bring value to art will be a theme for Jack. At the same time he will continue to do his own musical work as he always considers himself an artist.
In days gone by he may have been a starving artist and the feeling of “want” will be the thing that propels him forward. This man will do more with a woman in his life than he can do alone. He is productive when his partner walks the path of life at his side, neither leading nor following, but as an equal.
His Venus in Cancer urges him to make music that soothes or makes the listener feel they belong in a world where many do not. Jack’s Neptune is stimulated to make the journey from amateur to professional musician. That he ever made any money from his songs is still unbelievable to him.
Mars is trine the Sun and this give endless energy and a bright outlook to life. In his heart of hearts, he is up to the challenge. He will fight the good fight and be on the side of the angels.
Mars is square Mercury and this aspect shows the dichotomy between how he thinks and what he actually does. He can talk the talk and also walk the walk but the focus may be a troubling attribute. He will try hard to remain on track as the influences from other artists may be catalysts for a change of mind. Thoughts will benefit from being aired and groups like think-tanks will help him to get the energy for innovation out.
Mars and Saturn are the two bad boys of the zodiac and when they come together hard facts are faced and the result is a structure that sustains. Life will have its challenges for Jack and he may face many hurdles. Grit and determination to produce something of value will be the core drivers of his life.
There are several planetary configurations that will stimulate change for Jack in the next year or two.
In October the growth planet Jupiter will conjoin his natal Pluto and this will be reflected as an expansion at the core levels of his life. Opportunities to bring buried projects to conception will present themselves. Personal transformation will be the over-arching them towards the end of 2017.
The month of December promises to be full of activity and events and an opportunity to be published or launch an album will be an option. Jack will go into 2018 with more drive and confidence from his supporters than ever before.
The challenge will likely be in deciding what to do next as the chances for great things come to him. It will be decision time and plans made during the last month of the year will affect his future.
At the end of the year as Saturn meets his Neptune it triggers the quincunx to Venus and there could be a sadness as some parts of his life will be let go. He cannot do everything and it is best to focus on one or two projects whilst shelving others even though they may promise to be fun. He does not need to fear, as he can return to them later.
The early months of 2018 will be a period all about planning and establish solid foundations on which to stand as Jack builds his empire.
Note, if you happen to have the correct birth time please send me the info and I’ll cast the exact chart. 💛
How to Get Your Chart Featured
If you would like to have your own chart featured with a high-level interpretation by myself it is a simple process.
Each month on YouTube one of my videos has details at the back on how to get you chart featured. You have to be a subscriber, comment and email me your details.
I’ll get right on that and have it up for you as soon as possible.
If you still have questions drop me a line in the contact form below.
Patreon is a place that showcases artists and creative people so that patrons (that’s you) may choose to support creative people (that’s me) through small, regular financial giving. Your patronage can be as modest as $1 a month.
Who I am
I am Alison Price a writer, astrologer and creative in Vancouver, Canada. I live sparingly with my family and maintain a low carbon footprint. I have no car, no cable TV and no pets. I care for a plant called Egbert and lots of books.
In my creative work I have a computer, phone and printer. I use software, paper and ink and I have internet and web hosting commitments. These things are my main expenses apart from a roof and food (for Egbert you know).
I share and grow my astrology knowledge at workshops and conferences where I usually teach but sometimes I just attend. I like to recharge my creative juices through spending time with inspired people.
My currency is astrological and new age knowledge.
My Creative Work
I am driven to provide basic astrology that everyone can use. I strive to give you enough information so you can bring the essence of astrology into your life without having to learn the detailed intricacies of chart work or in other words the nitty gritty.
My goal is to raise basic astrological knowledge of everyone through simple, but correct, information. This is the stuff you can confidently use and you know some already like your Sun sign.
I aim to take this knowledge out of the ivory towers of “Astrology only” people and make it available for those who seek understanding. If you support enlightenment then you can help everyone else on their journey.
Of course I am happy with high level astrological theory, debate and questions but that only appeals to a select group.
I ask for your support, through your patronage, so I can continue to develop and write about astrology for everyone. Please help me.
Your contribution means so much to me. I appreciate each and every one of you. Thank you for considering to be my patron.
“If you wrote something for which someone sent you a check, if you cashed the check and it didn’t bounce, and if you then paid the light bill with the money, I consider you talented.” – Stephen King
I work as an astrologer and have done for many years. Over time I have honed my craft so I can be quick and correct in all my chart readings, classes or lectures.
I find the best way express myself is to show you how to read astrology charts. I like to explain about zooming in on what to look for and what to avoid.
Giving tips and tricks for getting to the heart of the chart is my main interest and I am happy to share them with you.
Much of my work is done behind the scenes but now this activity, which I’m calling my process, is a available for my supporters.. You can become a patron to my art of astrology.
The things I am working on are presented for you, almost daily, as a peek behind the veil of the mystery of astrology. It is a process. The road that leads towards knowledge and understanding is taken one step at a time. Much like the ninth house of a chart.
I am a happy person and I am glad to share some glimpses of my day with you guys. If you are trying to get your astrology readings or business going the. See how I do it. I’m not saying my way is the best way but rather that you can find your own path through your intuition and interests.
Not everything I do as a writer, astrologer and creative is shown as me pouring over a chart or with my nose stuck in an ephemeris, there is the artistic side as well. This includes drawing, urban sketching and colour work.
I also do quite a lot of freelance writing and create horoscopes for other new age sites. Some of the topics I write about are interesting things like crystals, reiki, numerology, dream therapy, colour therapy and astral projection.
I like exploring other techniques and will ultimately bring them back to astrology. I look for ways to connect the dots to weave a richer chart reading through my interest in related new age practices.
So the behind the scenes being documented for me is broader than the carefully crafted items and posts you see on my astrology only site at Starzology and on my Instagram,Facebook or Twitter feed.
And rightly so, you came to me for astrology as a starting point. You expect to see astrology and you certainly can do that. But the My Process tier of being a “Sun patron” in Patreon gives you a valuable look at my wider interests in occult matters.
Anyone who knows me will say I am easy going with a sense of humour. I like to have fun with astrology and new age subjects. I am never a doom and gloom person. I avoid political stuff and don’t cast charts for tragedies like tsunamis or earthquakes which harmed others.
You are far more likely to see me feature charts for inspiring thought leaders driving concepts and ideas, scientists with ground breaking discoveries that benefits humanity or naturalists exploring interesting things in the plant and animal world around us.
I believe in the creative beauty inside everyone. It is almost like your genius where the essence of your originality can be seen in your inspired pursuits. That little light of your can shine.
I know your light shows in your chart and can be brought forward by a reading. Heck, your creative light is the first thing I look for when I cast your chart.
