Something that may strike you right away when you come to this website or check out my social media profiles, is that I'm oddly quiet about astrology itself for being a practicing astrologer. While all the other astrologers I know are posting monthly and sometimes even daily content, I seem to be mute on the subject.
In fact, I recently deleted my old twitter account that was more astrology-focused and created an entirely new one that is almost purely dedicated to animism, folk magic, and my plant studies both mundane and occult. What's going on?
I'll actually talk more about my personal shift in gnosis in another blog; but for this one I want to address a systemic issue I've found amongst both professional astrologers and enthusiasts.
The Tool Becomes the Master; Being Ruled by Our Divination Practices
I truly believe that astrology is a tool to help us live better, more present lives. However, sometimes the tool becomes the master.
The most astounding and slightly terrifying aspect of ancient astrology, is that it tracks the circumstances of our life, both inner and outer, with eerie accuracy. So it's no wonder that as you learn more about astrology, you run the risk of obsession and trying to lay out the deep time of your life as far in advance as possible.
I've been guilty of trying to wait on doing things until the absolutely best astrological moment, as well as anxiously awaiting the worst possible outcome of events, due to obsessing over the astrology on a more-than-necessary basis.
