“The essential purpose of astrology is not so much to tell us what we will meet on our road, as it is to suggest how to meet it – and the basic reason for the meeting. Which quality in us, which type of strength is needed to go through any specific phase of our total unfoldment as an individual person.”
Astrology is one of the best-kept secrets of the past 100 years ! It hasn’t been kept secret in the sense that we haven’t had access to it, but awareness of its potential has been suppressed by cultural views that dismiss it as superstition.
Paradigm shifts of late, have caused many to seek new solutions to old problems in their lives. Healing modalities to support this shift in consciousness are springing up from ground zero, and compassionate assistance is becoming more mainstream for those who are on a spiritual path. The need to understand the “Why’s” in our life, and gain this so called “ higher consciousness” has become mainstream.
This new path is “optional”, in that it requires a conscious choice to access. In other words, you won’t get to a higher floor unless you push the button on the elevator.
Astrology is complicated! It is as complicated as life, reality, experience, motivations, purpose, etc. Anything that is able to describe all of those things would have to be complex. It is a language that describes human experience. It can be explored and studied but can never fully be understood by the human mind.
There is a cultural bias that astrology is either “meaningless entertainment” or completely disempowering, because we are either afraid of, or hoping “to be wowed by what is coming” without any leverage to do anything about it. Individuals come to us with questions like, “is love in my future?” or “how long with this health condition last?”
As an Evolutionary Astrologer who works with planetary energies from the perspective of archetypal symbolism, I am not able to answer those questions. What I can do is tell people what I see is the underlying evolutionary impulse behind the situation, and how they can approach it from a place of personal empowerment.
What becomes apparent from a reading is the “virtual veil” is pulled aside, and the chart reveals what they have always felt, but have never been able to put into words. As astrologers our work is to help them find the right doors, and teach how to open them for themselves.
Reflecting this truth helps them find their own path to the correct life choices that will carry them to “higher consciousness”, as well as provide the clarity and self-acceptance they need to think and act in alignment with what will bring them the greatest possible joy and fulfillment.
You could be missing an opportunity to understand yourself in ways that change your life!
Astrological interpretations aimed at providing validation for our life – as we live it, and comprehending more fully the work we are meant to do in this lifetime.
Indalo was perceived to be a go-between between man and God, with a rainbow providing a bridge between heaven and earth. This symbol serves as a reminder of the complex belief of man (you the astrologer) as the microcosm and the Universe (the astrology chart) as the macrocosm.
The ancient cave paintings of the Indalo were discovered in Almeria, southern Spain, in the late 19th Century, but they date back 4,500 years. The paintings show figures of a man holding a rainbow in outstretched arms – not dissimilar to many such paintings found in various places around the world.
Archaeologists and anthropologists believe they represent the search by primitive man for wisdom and truth in the universe.
For the native Indian tribes of North America, the rainbow was one of the most powerful qualities of the Great Spirit of creation and the Indalo Rainbow Man figure is often represented in sacred paintings and drawings by the Zuni, Hopi, and Navajo. Legends of these ancient tribes, as well as the Cree and the Sioux, foretell when the Great Spirit will once again rise up and the Rainbow Warrior will lead the world to freedom.
The Indalo is the symbol of the whole region of Almería, and you can see the lucky symbol wherever you go. Indal Eccius means ‘ Messenger of the Gods ‘ in old Iberian and the lucky charm is considered a guardian angel (a bit like a St. Christopher, or a St James Cross worn by many on the Camion de Santiago) . . not only being a symbol of good luck but also representing Man’s ethereal connection with the spirits and the universe.
