Many cultures believe that our souls choose our families before we are born. Our parents, siblings, and even the time and place we are born are all chosen because our souls have determined that this is how we will learn best on our journey of life. Ideally, our family would embody unconditional support and understanding during our time together. However, for many of us, this is not the case.
The mental thought patterns (Psychological Projection) that cause the most dis-ease in the body are CRITICISM, ANGER, RESENTMENT, and GUILT. If we weren't afraid of our Shadow we wouldn't sabotage our relationships with ourselves and others. Today thanks to Jung and the evolution of Astro-Psychology, ignorance of the Self - Shadow and all - is no longer an excuse. Take today, Friday April 13, 2018 as an example:
Right out of the box, all EIGHT of Diamonds "The Sun Card" are a force to be reckoned with because their Birth Card. like the Sun it represents, is a source of Power and Energy. The + Karma SEVEN of Clubs "Spiritual Knowledge" keeps them on the Path of Honesty, Trust. Integrity, and Goodness. Lastly their - Karma Card, their hidden talent, the QUEEN of Spades "Self Mastery," comes standard at birth, no need to spend countless hours learning what they can do well.
So, what could go wrong? No HEART, is included or embedded in their otherwise right thinking, Who They Are, soul. To compensate, they fear, that they must maintain - Material Control. 8 of Diamonds see Money as Power and don't want to lose their money and thus their power.
When you add the person's birth sign and accompanying Ego Card, life and fear of our shadow, gets a whole lot more complicated.
Here is what April 13th the EIGHT of Diamonds Day of the ICONOCLAST looks like on Dr. David Kolb's Learning Style Inventory:
Introducing the ACE of Clubs "Desire for Knowledge" Card splits the persona into two contenders for April 13th Aries III's consciousness, plus another karmic fear or challenge; Karma for the ACE of Clubs - Emotional Stability. Now, wouldn't you know it, here April 13th is born without a heart card and inherits an Ego that's worried about Emotional Stability.
How is all this information about me and my shadow supposed to help me with the curse of Psychological Projection? Never fear, the predictive nature of Astrology has written the script for the Day of the ICONOCLAST, somewhere before the beginning of time and all you have to do, is play your part in the Dharma Drama.
