I think the single best gift you can give yourself is self awareness. And that is, in a nutshell, what Astrology gives us. Our birth charts are the blue prints of our lives. It shows the circumstances we've been dealt and how we handle, react, and express things. It shows what we are good at and what we aren't so good at (and why!). Getting familiar with our personal charts and combining it with what is currently going on in the sky, we can be prepared, mindful, aware, and waaay more chill then everybody who doesn't know what's going on!
How I got into astrology
My intrigue with Astrology dates back to when I was a little kid listening to my Grandmother tell me how I was "an old soul" and was going to be "all over the place" (a nice way of saying that I'd be lost AF with what to do with my lovely life) and as I got older, things like "you shouldn't date him, your charts are too similar". It wasn't until 2015 that I started learning how to do readings myself and putting into practice what I was always so intrigued by, and thought was oh-so weird and hilarious about my grandmother growing up.
Now there is not a day that goes by that I am not looking at a chart, watching Astrology videos at length, or researching. And let me tell y'all, I have never focused on anything at this length or this passionately in my life. I simply love doing it and can't get enough.
We are all told to find something that you love doing, or as I like to ask - "What keeps you so sucked in that you forget that you need to eat or poop?" (Because, c'mon, those are the two best parts of the day, am-I-right?) For me, that's Astrology.
