Do We Choose our Astrological Sign?

I’m the first one to admit that I don’t know much about astrology. Outside of the characteristics and time frame of each sign.  I’ve never really even had an interest of studying it, until this morning.

When I woke, I realized I must have been studying Astrology on the Astral Plane because my first thought to myself was, “Do we choose our Astrological Sign when we are planning our next incarnation?” Cebu my Spirit Guide Healing Master, who just happens to be one of my best friends and teachers; therefore, he’s in my ear all the time said to me,  “YES! I’m so glad you asked!”

The information that he started to share with me, I found to be quite profound.  However, it may be trivial to most skilled Astrologists’s.  For someone like me, who has never studied it, I was awe-struck.  Cebu began to explain that when we are in between lives and we are planning our next incarnation, we sit down for great lengths with a supportive counsel to start mapping out our next lifetimes soul lessons.  We review what our soul has already done and what we can achieve in the future and with whom.  We start signing soul contracts with other souls to accomplish these lessons and achievements.

Next, we choose a name.  The name that we choose will phonetically and vibrationally carry a certain energy.  This energy will be the outer blueprint of our lives.  Essentially the outer crust of a pie, if you will.  It’s how we look from the outside.  It’s the outer content of our life story.

Then we take a look at Astrology, we see where our soul lessons fit into the chart.  The chart is already written for us, we just decide where we want to be placed.  Where we decide to be placed will allow us to live out our souls lessons on Mother Earth.  As you see, it’s truly the fabric of our soul.  It’s a detailed map of who we will become, what life lessons we will learn, what time this will happen.  It’s literally a detailed blueprint of our lives! The juicy pie filling to our pie crust.

Take me for example, I’m an Aquarius.  Typical traits of an Aquarius are independent, innovative, confident, fixed (stubborn) with a bluntness of truth to them.  Well, I wasn’t born this way at all.  I had to really learn through soul lessons to really become my true self, my true Aquarian self.  I was born independent, spending weeks at a specialty hospital where I had very limited visitors.  However, I quickly learned co dependency which would carry forward into my early 30’s.  It wasn’t until I started working on my soul that I learned my independent, lone wolf Aquarian ways.  You see, I had to live into my souls lessons and blueprint.  I wasn’t a very innovative kid, through my co dependency, I simply was a follower.  I didn’t gain the confidence to become an innovative leader again, until I started to explore my spiritual path which guided me to become more connected with my authentic self.  I wasn’t stubborn either, again a follower.  If you knew me, nothing ever seemed to bother me because I was still learning my voice, still learning my confidence…still learning ME.

Now, with over a decade of soul-searching, learning and intuition I truly am fully integrated with my Authentic Higher Self.  I see my soul’s fabric clearly written out in my astrological chart.  The only proof you need, is to have your chart read of the years you’ve already lived to see how true this is.

After my conversation with Cebu, I now can see clearly everyone’s soul lessons, basically written on their sleeves.  We choose our signs, to learn how to live into them. Perhaps a sign such as an Earthbound Taurus spent many lifetimes never being grounded so they chose to be a Taurus to learn what it’s like to be fixed to Earth. Perhaps a Gemini walked a straight single line in past lives and is now learning how to see things from twin sides.  Or a Cancer had not emoted in past lives so they are learning through their emotions.  Maybe a Virgo had lived free with no structure in a previous life, so now they are here to keep us all organized.

If we can harness this information, maybe all of us can find our paths a little easier for it is written in the stars…

On a side note, after my conversation with Cebu, I turned the radio on and The Rolling Stones “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” was playing…I laughed and thanked Cebu for sending clear messages from various aspects!

“You can’t always get what you want…but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need…” The Rolling Stones

Little Signs have Big Meaning

IMG_7992I have an unconventional morning meditation.  My beloved bulldog Luna and I have quite the ritual, as bulldogs and humans tend to be quite ritualistic.  We wake up, make our coffee and head straight outside without even opening our eyes fully to see what the weather is like.  Silently hoping for a bit of warmth and no wind.  I look up to see if my bamboo is swaying, Luna checks to see if her bird tribe is hanging out on the electrical wires above; checking to see if they are moving with the wind or singing their morning song.  We both look for “Tinto” our resident red hummingbird.  Then as seamless as our communication always has been, we collectively plop down on our double chaise lounge to cuddle and have some well deserved coffee.

Then…we take to the ocean. As soon as we are suited up and our board hits the water, it’s as if we enter into another time and space.  Luna takes to the nose of our board to hang 10, like the mermaid pup she was born to be.   I navigate from the back and we become this seamless movement along the water.  People have often asked how I trained her and I say, “it just is”.  Truly what it has always been is a lesson in telepathy.  We have to communicate telepathically; her from the front of the board and me from the back.  We both have to intuitively know each others next step information, as we anticipate weight and balance against waves, rip tides & currents and the occasional seal who would like to hop on our board.

Once we are synced, this is when my morning meditation begins.  Almost instantly, my mind clears and I get a direct channel of information from my Spirit Guides and Angels.  This is where I receive most of my guidance from.  If I ever need clear answers, this is where I go.  I’m not sure why, I suppose I must feel in my element and the outside “real” world can’t really penetrate us while we’re so free riding Mother Earth’s Highway.

This space is also a direct line to communicate with nature.  We honor all the resident birds that we pass.  We say good morning to the seal nursery on a certain dock while several sleepy, cuddling seals throw up a flipper to wish us well as we pass; making sure we honor each and every one.  We know the seals who don’t stick to a pack and make sure we send them energetic hugs as we pass and ask for ArchAngel Ariel, the ArchAngel who watches over all animals, to please watch over them.  We say hello to some resident humans too, sending pleasantries.  All while my guidance is flowing in.

Today was an exceptionally beautiful day.  No wind, 80 degrees.  Calm waters.  We have recently been sticking to paddle boarding in our local harbor as opposed to dropping in to one of our beaches to catch some waves, which we love to do but since there have been several Great White Shark sightings as well as it being Shark Week and all, I hadn’t been feeling very adventurous.  Especially with having a cute little 50 pound nugget on the nose of my board but today was so nice…

We paddled to the edge of the harbor and we could either turn back around or hang right and drop into a great little beach cove and take a couple of waves.  I started to get really nervous with the thought.  Then…just as I’m about to make my decision to turn around and go back, a mama dolphin appears right in front of us with her tiny baby.  They were taking their time, enjoying each other and the beautiful day we were having.  It was so beautiful! I took it as a clear sign from my guides that all is safe, that we didn’t have anything to worry about.  To take my little nugget baby and follow by example and enjoy this gorgeous day.  To JUST BE is what my guides told me.  Don’t worry, JUST BE.

It’s the little, subtle signs in life that always send the biggest messages…
