Learning A New Skill

Learning something new keeps my mind healthy and moving. I love to learn. Every few years I find myself learning a new skill. Learning and adding skills to my toolbox is just an integral part of what makes me who I am. My latest gift to myself in learning is astrology. I used to think astrology was just woo-woo stuff, and yet at the same time I was drawn to it. I had my chart read a few times, I had my son's chart read when he was a baby, I had my nephew's chart done, and yet, I supposedly thought it was woo-woo.  In fact, I think I really thought that it was too hard to learn. I looked at the charts, filled with hieroglyphics and lines and triangles and geometric patterns and I was a bit overwhelmed. I would think, well maybe I will learn it some day. So instead I learned more chiropractic skills, then I learned the Family Constellation work, and I use them all. In fact, each skill I learn adds to who I am and what I can bring to be of service to others. I love to help others be who they are and to allow them to bring all of who they are to themselves and to others so they can contribute in their highest way in life. So recently, I asked myself, well, is it time to add a different kind of constellations to my learning? And the answer this time around was a resounding YES.  It was time to make myself sit and learn a new language; the language of astrology. With the help of a great teacher, Debra Silverman, and her mentors and the group of us learning separately and together, I began learning this new skill. What I love about it is that it does not woo, but does involve learning a whole new language, and this language is all about patterns, dynamics, and relationships of parts of us in relation to other parts of us. I am learning that astrology is about life. It shows us what we were born with, like our genetic and ancestral blueprint, and ways in which we can work with what we have been given to come from our highest possible place, ways in which we also come from our lowest ways of being, and all the possible ways of being in between the two.  There is a working family constellation all within us. The moving dynamics involves how the planets are moving in relation to us now, and how the moving planets affect us in our given birth rights. It also shows us how we can actively work with certain aspects of us if we choose, and how we can more openly accept us and even have so much more compassion for ourselves. We all have core wounds or places inside of us that were acutely affected by people and circumstances in our lives. All this shows up in our birth charts, as well as ways with which, knowing us and our blueprint, we can work with our wounds
