A few years ago my mother told me, “I wish I had understood your birth chart when you were a child.” I was gobsmacked by the radical possibilities of a parent understanding the astrological blueprint of their children in early stages of development.
While astrology isn’t an omnipotent, catchall explanation or excuse for behavior, it provides a symbiotic framework upon which all of our life experiences and energy are intertwined.
Do you ever have that moment with your child when you bump heads but can’t figure out why?
Just like a computer, when you learn the native coding of a program or hardwiring of a mind, you unlock a more seamless connection.
Your relationship is not beholden to your astrological differences; it is a roadmap to common ground.
I know a birth chart can be overwhelming at first glance. We’re going to keep it simple and look at one component of the chart: Mercury. Mercury is the planet of thought process, communication and ego. It is the lens through which we see and interpret the world.
