The Big Y-O-U
If you’ve been walking a spiritual path for a while now, you might have noticed this very annoying phenomenon. You can use the tools you’ve accessed to get very clear, find your guides, be able to read the signs from your higher self, experience wild magic and outrageous synchronicities-- and still, at those really critical moments where you have to make a very important choice or break yourself out of a stuck condition, you ask this beautiful magical ecosystem you’ve built around yourself, “Hey, what should I do? What’s the RIGHT choice?” And reality sort of blinks back at you, like, oh yeah wow, man, I don’t know! What ARE you going to do? This episode is about learning to trust your own highest wisdom, your own inner light…even when you really, really want someone to just tell you what to do. —Part 1: Hello I am leaving an internet pseudo-cult. (3:49)A story about some recent personal fall-out of wanting to believe someone else has the answers I need about my own path. Part 2: Astrology for sovereignty! (9:49)We can use astrology to look for answers outside of ourselves. Or we can use it to signal and tap in to our own highest wisdom. Part 3: Four ingredients for trusting your own highest wisdom (14:15)1. Learn how to trust your body2. Learn what truth feels like in your body3. Develop a system for communicating with your unconscious wisdom (tarot, astrology, dreamwork, etc)4. Locate the courage to trust yourself to make your own choices.

The birth chart journaling masterclass!
I think of a birth chart (as a reflection of a soul) like a perfect piece of music. Some parts are easy to play, and some parts are hard to play. We might hate the hard parts, because we keep stumbling over them. But when we love and respect those complex and difficult aspects of our character, we can start to master them--and then the genius of the piece really starts to emerge. ✨💎✨This method of working with your chart is all about being you in ways that bring you MORE joy and LESS suffering--and learning astrology along the way!.The full masterclass replay and the free PDF download that goes with it are available at https://www.crowdcast.io/e/vg4bii6j. Or click the "Free Masterclass" button from https://trueselfastrology.comFYI: This practice uses your fav astrology app as the foundation for journaling. Mine is TimePassages, and that's what I recommend to start with.
