Nothing in this world is fated to happen. Astrology is a tool you can use to pick and choose how you face the world. An inspiring call the other day brought the Sun out to light up my world and proved that by using the principles of astrology pro-actively someone could greatly improve their situation.
Here is what happened: Someone I had advised some time back called to thank me for turning her life around.
When she spoke with me initially she was terrified because transiting Pluto was about to create a Grand Cross with her natal planets.
She was worried about going bankrupt, was struggling to make ends meet as it was, was burdened by a great deal of debt, and was afraid that when the Pluto transit was within orb of her planets that her entire world would be shattered. She recalled that when Neptune had triggered her T Square many years before that she experienced great financial hardship and was almost beside herself with worry about the upcoming Pluto transit.
This woman has a very turbulent T-Square in her birth chart that includes several financial planets; Chiron, Neptune, and Venus.
She knew that slow moving Pluto would create the planetary picture below in 2009:
The advice she received was to batten down her hatches and get prepared. If transiting Pluto could wipe out her finances (this was her fear) by creating enormous pressures (Pluto) on her finances (Chiron, Venus, Neptune) then it was suggested that she use that very same power of Pluto to take charge of her finances, turning the tables on Pluto so to speak, and wipe out her debt load and become as financially secure as possible before the Grand Cross pattern became exact.
This woman not only started making much more money because she focused on her finances, but entirely paid off a huge amount of debt, became completely debt free, and began saving money so she had something to fall back on in the event of hardship (financial advisor Dave Ramsay would be very proud of her!) She even found less expensive housing that she liked much better.
When I spoke with her the first time she was depressed, worried, and fearful of the future. When I spoke with her the second time, in the midst of the Pluto transit to her T-square, she was happy, secure, confident, and ready to tackle anything the universe threw at her.
Bad transits do not mean that anyone is fated to suffer or go bankrupt. When you look ahead and see difficult conditions ahead it is wise to slow down and get prepared.
You won’t drown if you are wearing a life jacket.
Astrology should not be predictive—it should be PRO-ACTIVE.
It was wonderful to hear from someone who benefited so greatly from pro-active astrological counsel!
My the stars be with you,
