What Astrology Teaches Us

[Listen to Audio!]


Astrology is not meant to be a primarily predictive science. It is meant to be for understanding ourselves and also for understanding other people. I’ve had a number of interviews recently where I was amazed that people thought it was fatalistic. It’s not — absolutely not. There is nothing in a horoscope, that blue-print, that pattern, that you cannot change if you want to. I’ve seen this over the years. It’s the stories of the cycles and rhythms you are going through, and what you have brought over from the past to work out. It shows your character. You can read it the day a child is born; you can tell what they have brought over as a blessing and what they have brought over as a challenge that they have to change. But that is only the personality pattern. Behind the personality lies your real self, and you center yourself in that essential thing.

A great while ago, an Eastern teacher taught me something and I’ve watched it work over the years. We are vibrationally connected to everything that happens to us. There is only one way we can change what we do in this life, and that is by changing our attitude toward it; this changes our consciousness. This is a cosmic law that few people know. By changing your attitude, one of two things has to happen. Either person or the problem will be completely removed without any harm to anyone, or that person or problem will change so much that you will be able to live with it very easily. Now, in over thirty years, I’ve never seen it proved wrong in a person who changed their attitude, their consciousness.

This world of appearance is not the creative world; this is the world of manifestation that always changes. We create our conditions inside us and if we want to change what is manifesting in the world of apperance, we must change ourselves and our conciousness. That’s how we change what happens. I’ve seen this verified over and over. Never saw it wrong.

When we change our attitude, we start blessing that which we are fighting against.

What Astrology Teaches Us
What tools (including but certainly not limited to astrology) have particularly helped you to understand your blessings and challenges? How do you center yourself in that essential thing that lies behind your personality? Can you share a personal story of an attitude change that shifted your consciousness to allow you to “bless that which you are fighting”?

Wednesday Meditation:
Many years ago, a couple friends got together to sit in silence for an hour, and share personal aha-moments. That birthed this newsletter, and later became “Wednesdays”, which now ripple out to living rooms around the world. To join, RSVP online.

Back in 1997, one person started sending this simple “meditation reminder” to a few friends. Soon after, “Wednesdays” started, ServiceSpace blossomed, and the humble experiments of service took a life of its own. If you’d like to start a Wednesday style meditation gathering in your area, we’d be happy to help you get started.
