My Astrology chart is marked by the Fixed Cross of the Phoenix, the Water Bearer, the Bull, and the Lion. I love the Sabian Symbols. I have looked up every major angle and all of my planets’ and points’ Sabian Symbols. I know some people are not familiar with the Sabian Symbols, so I thought I would write a short explanation here. The Sabian Symbols are Cosmic Wisdom downloaded to Elsie Wheeler and Marc Edmund Jones. Elsie Wheeler was a clairvoyant and Marc Edmund Jones was an astrologer. There are 360 Sabian Symbols, one for every degree of the Zodiac (12 signs x 30 degrees in each sign = 360 degrees). Each Symbol gives the degree life.
I like to doodle art my astrology. That’s what I call my drawings, doodle art. They just come through me, and to the best of my current abilities, I put the energies I am feeling onto the paper. This is a drawing I did for my Sun, Moon, and Rising signs. It really helps me get in touch with my unique energies. I hope this inspires you to do some doodle drawing.
I don’t remember exactly when I fell in love with astrology. I know when I first got an astrology reading online, from Cafe Astrology, I was amazed at how I could be “read” so well simply from providing my date, time, and place of birth. How does that allow someone to know who I am? It is like having your soul laid bare. I had already been familiar with my Sun sign, but I knew there was more even before I understood why. But the more I got to know my natal chart (or birth chart, astrology chart), the more I really loved myself because I appreciated how unique I was. No one else will ever have my birth chart or be me. That was a profound shift in my life. I wanted to learn everything I could about my chart so that I could express myself to the fullest and live my fullest life.
And the more I understood my unique energies (planets, archetypes), the more I got to know them in a visceral way, the more I understood that they too are evolving through me. The Universe is a dynamic dance of energies. Just as I am not static, neither are the planets. Therefore, astrology is not static either. It, too, will evolve to reflect a growing consciousness in humanity. Your birth chart is not static either. It Is like a guidebook that will lead you on your greatest journey: the journey to embodying your fullest Self. You will get more and more subtleties from your birth chart as you yourself evolve and grow.
