Have you ever felt so lost you'd try anything? YOU scoured the internet for personality quizzes, read self-development books, listened to motivational podcasts and started all the healthy habits, BUT it still wasn't clicking? WHAT IS MY PURPOSE!!!!!! What AM I supposed to do with my life?
That was me, sister, I couldn't figure out my WHY or my PURPOSE for many years. I first want to tell you that you aren't lost or on the wrong path, that you are exactly where you're meant to be. The fact that you are reading this is a sign that you are in the right place! It's all apart of divine timing, and we all need to learn through are various human experiences.
For me, a HUGE shift came once I got my hands on my full natal Astrology chart, so many things in my life started to make sense! It was like I was finally able to decode why I was the way I was. For example, I've had a million jobs; Sales Representative, Marketing Coordinator, Buyer, Office Manager, People Operations Specialist, Wedding Planner + owned my own Event Planning business. I kept thinking will I ever figure it out, will I ever find my purpose? It wasn't until I dove deep into my full Astrology chart and saw things like; I'm a Gemini moon in my 10th house of career. The moon tells you how to live out your soul purpose in your body; for me, that soul path is through my career (10th house). Geminis need to communicate, process facts and ideas. They are always researching, learning and pushing intellectual boundaries. I always thought of myself as an extrovert; hence all the people facing roles. However, when I hit a plateau in my career, I started taking random courses, diving into self-development and spirituality. I realized I'm both; I get a lot of energy by being introverted through learning and then being extroverted by communicating that information to others. My moon sign in Gemini is just one example of how my chart helped me put the pieces together.
As I looked deeper into my chart, almost every aspect was leading me to use my knowledge, wisdom and experiences to heal and inspire others. I thought this couldn't be! But the deeper I reflected and discovered myself through my astrology chart this made perfect sense. My challenges, hurts and pains have all led me to show others how to alchemize their darkness into light (hello sun sign in Scorpio).
My Ascendant Ruler is in Virgo in my 1st house of Self; your self-image, confidence and expression. Whatever sign you have in your 1st house is very apparent to others around you. We wear this energy on our sleeves. As a Sun Sign in Scorpio, I thought I gave off that mysterious dark vibe, but I was o so wrong. I now understand how I carry Virgo tendencies, such as being sensitive, helpful, a perfectionist, overly critical of Self and sensitive to criticism. One of my key lessons has been unconditional self-love and the importance of not taking life so seriously! It's 1000% ok to make mistakes, and no one is perfect here on earth.
The North and South Nodes points taught me where I was on my journey and where I needed to go. I'm a South node Libra, a people pleaser and a North node Aries, a trailblazer. My crucial lesson in life is not to make decisions through the lens of what others advise me to do, or I think they desire of me. Instead, I need to be my true authentic Self; stand on my own two feet and blaze my own trail forward.
Reading through my Astrology Natal chart helped me discover so much about myself. Especially the shadow parts that I was blinded by or even parts of myself that I have repressed. The star blueprint to my personality has guided me to my passions, purpose and why!
