I call Astrological Birth Chart Readings Cosmic Soul Maps for several reasons. One, is that when we are born we already contain a memory bank that is much more vast than any computer system. This set of endowed skills is built into us and holds personalities that have created realities that must operate within the means of existence, which in human form means a physical body, but also our own consciousness, which on its own is highly creative working its way through the system, as if to literally wake up from a dream and break through the barrier of the “computer” itself. We have the Cosmos within us, we have these maps of our soul… our past… within us, and as we all are awakening our consciousness, some of us have found ways to equip our self with metaphysical tools.
One such tool is my Cosmic Soul Map, which is not your average Astrological Birth Chart, but that in some ways could resemble a chart generated by another competent Evolutionary Astrologer. My method of Astrology is deeply inspired by the work of the late Jeffrey Wolf Green who links Pluto to the concept of the Soul. By looking at Pluto and the polarity point of Pluto’s placement in the chart we have a beginning, rather an awareness of the general vibe and patterns an individual is born with from evolutionary past experiences of reality, including thoughts and beliefs, and values… and also a deeper intention for this lifetime… lessons to be learned and worked through, a desire within that each person has but may or may not even be aware of. (I’ll be explaining why I’ve had a fascination with Pluto since I was a teenager, and how it led me to Jeff Green in a future blog post…)
Whether we want to or not, and whatever our personality does to manifest what we want, the Soul will take over in the backdrop and have its way with learning the lessons it was meant to learn and be expressed in this lifetime. Some of us carry past trauma that disrupts our day to day life, whereas others seem more care free and light-hearted, but all of us by the sheer nature of being a part of our collective history carry some type of spiritual wounding, and the conflicts we see arising in our world now are not just occurring because of “bad people” doing “bad things” but because as our Souls desire to experience that which they need to for evolutionary purposes, lessons and power struggles occur, and many people deny the soul work that is meant for them in this lifetime, they turn away from it, because their personality wants things to be easier or may innocently believe that to go within, feel emotions, release mental conditioning and spiritual dogma is unacceptable, as if it shatters their safety bubble of how they manage to get along.
I work with people who, like me, have seen beyond the little safe bubble reality of wanting to protect our ego’s desires. We have a burning desire to go within and do whatever it takes to make sense of our soul’s purpose. Everyone comes to me with a unique chart that is perfect as it is, divinely representing a unique potential… What I do is help people to fulfill this potential by identifying areas where change would be useful, and guide them to a see the middle ground in everything… For example, we can all put on a happy face and go about our day as best as we can, and that is great to stay positive and do our other work in society, but within us all are places that need attention and our “happy face” may be covering up a blockage that stagnates our spiritual growth, keeping us locked into a pattern of behavior to just get by… when what our soul is desiring nags at us, weighing us down… To actually have the awareness or belief that the Soul could be swaying us is a concept in itself, and it is unlikely that someone who feels these concepts are bogus would ever request Astrological Birth Chart Readings Cosmic Souls Maps… Perhaps it is not their time, and they are not going to transform their own limitations or benefit from the therapeutic potential of astrology until they gain an interest in the energy flow of the Soul into their immediate experience.
Guiding a client to experience the transpersonal dimension of the psyche is a process that usually works best when the person has some sort of spiritual foundation in place, or at least an open mind… What’s amazing though, is that even for the client who is not “there” yet, or fixated on a more rigid framework in the mind, they too can experience transformational healing as well… Soulful healing comes not from the astrologer but from the cosmos and within! Yes, the planets shift and mirror our own internal shifts, and the astrologer is just a facilitator for the awareness to unfold in a way that connections are made for higher awareness. For this reason, I may also differ from a lot of astrologer’s in that I truly see myself as equal to all others. Each one of my clients knows or will realize while working with me, that I Am another You. We are all experiencing life side by side, and some of us have gifts that explore and guide others through these realms, whereas others raise awareness and are guides through other types of journeys.
Far beyond our basic mannerisms and style are much deeper roots within our consciousness that are tied up into knots and twisted around in a messy network of thousands of lifetimes… These roots are the Soul. We all want to find inner peace, and sometimes with such a tedious task of unraveling our inner world, we struggle to find it… as if happiness is just something we strive to obtain and only experience temporarily when some basic need is fulfilled. By remembering who we truly are, beyond our personality and more so on a Soul level, we feel better. Astrology helps us feel better. And even though, and I know this from experience, we may be challenged to work through painful memories, or deep traumas, or even mundane experiences of life that just happen spontaneously, we are better off having the blueprint of our soul as a tool to help us navigate through hard times, than we are to simply push ahead directionless, wasting time going forth without any glimpse of the terrain ahead.
Cosmic Soul Maps are my version of holding a mirror up in front of a person’s evolving self to show what is already known deep within. I guide people to wake up out of their personality and into the moment when they can realize their central core true spiritual self, and from there, rise above all the little details that constitute their life… It is then that profound transformation starts to happen, and it ripples out into every aspect of life, even affecting others who are unaware… The energy of our lives and how we make choices affects the whole, and in this way, I feel blessed to have this awareness and I am devoted to facilitating energy flow as my life path to my own personal healing and the healing of the entire planet. Each person is a microcosm of the macrocosm and we all are a part of the collective. No one is better or more evolved than anyone else… we just have different levels and types of awareness.

Lastly, as I wanted to explain in this post, that I not only have a method of astrology that is blessed with years of experience and so too, the knowledge I’ve gained from elder friends who’ve passed along their experience to me, including Tom Lescher (“Kaypacha”), and Daniel Sowelu to name my most beloved, but each astrologer has a set of principles to live by, and work by… I am not a fortune-teller, and I do not make predictions to entertain or impress my clients.
We are all free. We are not defined by our birth charts, no more than a child is defined by what their parents think of them. We all have choices and a life subject to change and function in ways unpredictable and constantly in a dynamic dance with the cosmos. In this way, all of the symbols I refer to are not set-in-stone examples of the ways things are, more so like a verb, an action of growth, change and evolving… The symbols are neutral, there is no good or bad. Cosmic Soul Maps are blueprints for the most creative potential and path of each individual’s soul, however each person is responsible for the way they choose to embody the Astrological Birth Chart. If someone rears off course and has lost awareness of their soul path this usually entails an underlying feeling of emptiness… and in this way I see that there is great power and it’s actually the most important aspect of what I do, to guide people into an expanded and more intensified self-awareness, and to also observe and continue to wonder and see their own viewpoint of the great mystery that is life.
It serves no higher purpose to try and equate astrology to, or make sense of it alongside any type of religious philosophy because it looses it’s own purpose, which is simply to lift us up and go beyond all of those details, further into the deepest part of our Soul, and to wake up to our inherent potential. Whether or not change can come from the facilitation of this potential in a Birth Chart reading is dependent on the capacity of the astrologer and the client. A trust is needed, a relationship to some degree has to be made, for the person receiving information about their chart to be open to and not feel like they need to or unconsciously put up defenses. My work as a Spiritual Counselor and Reiki Master Teacher is partly why I am able to reach this fusion with clients, where they feel comfortable… because I am a deeply compassionate empath, who has suffered much in this life and in my past, as I’ve also done so much intense soul work, to be able to reach beyond myself, and see my truth, and release that which no longer serves me so that I may serve others… I am human, and we all have defenses when we are triggered into pain, or attacked energetically, and although I’ve never had to turn anyone away from a reading, or any type of energy work, I am aware of the conflicts that may arise between individuals, and like I said in the beginning of this post, I am equal to all others, therefore aware of the ways miscommunication can occur or be augmented in self-serving ways when blinded by ego. I have a keen sense of when someone is truly prepared to engage in their own healing process. I am not here to heal anyone. I am healing myself and guiding others to do the same.
