You’ll have to come down from there, eventually. Why put it off?

There is a peculiar gift and curse that comes with being an astrologer: being able to see one’s transits and understand how it’s affecting things.

That might seem like a strange thing for an astrologer to say. I make my living consulting with people about the state of their lives, and on a regular basis I help them find meaning and get real solutions to their problems and let them know when things will be better. These are all the gifts that come with astrology.

Having said that: we all have a tendency to get trapped in our own heads sometimes. Astrologers are no different than anyone else that way. I find that astrologers have their own peculiar emotional rut they get into: bad times hit, the astrologers stare at their transits, and then declare that things suck because of the transits. On the one hand, that’s absolutely true. When bad times arrive, the transits always show it. But on the other hand, that approach to astrology (and life in general)  is as useful as saying “you’re depressed because you’re depressed” or “your relationship sucks because your relationship sucks.” Understanding the mechanism is a good start, but then you have to do something. You have to talk to a professional, or confront your mate without fear, or whatever the situation you are facing requires of you.

Astrology, in and of itself, can provide a lot of answers, and it leads to solutions… but it won’t do the work for you. You need to take action and not be a victim of what the planets are doing to you today or next month. Having said that: if you want your life to be a better place, understanding your conditions and knowing the right questions to ask of life is an excellent start. That’s the real power of getting a reading.

Now, if you’ll excuse me… I’m having some difficult transits and I need to do something about them…
