Last Friday, I did a charity event, which meant I did a dozen readings back-to-back in a short space of time. I was worried that I’d end up being a kind of fairground fortune teller. Cross my palm with silver, etcetera. My worries turned out to be groundless.
Although I’d lost my voice by the end of it, the experience was energising and profound. This was thanks to the people who came to see me. They reminded me — again — of something important that astrology teaches: everyone is interesting.
In a way, I’m used to this. All my clients fascinate me and each one teaches me something new. I know that already: every life is rich, complex and valuable.
But talking to so many people in rapid succession on Friday evening drove this point home to me as never before. After each person left, I wondered if I could retain my focus for the next one. In fact, it was easy. The chart revealed the person; the person revealed their authentic story. And these were people who would not ordinarily sit down with an astrologer. Only one had ever had a natal chart read before, and none of them knew Rising sign or Moon sign. Yet all were willing to quickly get to the truth.
I am very, very grateful to everyone who came.
In case you’re wondering. An exact trine from trSun, plus a conjunction from trNeptune to my own Sun. trMercury exactly on my natal Jupiter in Gemini (a lot of talking!) sextiled by trVenus-Jupiter in Leo.
