Astrology for Parents and Family
FAMILY ASTROLOGY: WHAT YOU MUST KNOW All families are coherent networks in which parents and child are part of a common network
When someone is born the position of the planets and certain astrological factors represent a clear reflection of the way of being of the parents. For example, the Moon and Venus relate to certain aspects of the way of being and/or or living of the persons mother. And Sun and Mars show us the same for the father. For people new to Astrology this might be extremely surprising. That´s why I´ll explain a bit about the subject and the ins and outs of it´s implications. Especially for parents receiving a natal chart reading for their child. From the point of view of Astrology, everything is connected, deeply in it´s very essence, everything is tied together in a coherent network of time and space, matter and energy. Things happen in a moment in which it is coherent for them to happen. Your child is an astrologically coherent happening for you as parents and you the parents are an astrologically coherent happening for the child. In other words, through the experience of having your child you will automatically be paying attention to and learning about a part of yourselves as individual people. And once again, vice versa, your child´s process of development means that it will automatically be paying attention to and learning who he/she is through experiencing you as parents. This beautiful symmetrical reasoning is generally not considered in the day to day of our practical life. Understanding Astrology radically changes the feeling that we are separate beings and that inheritance from parents to kids is based only on random chances. Some astrological understanding can provide parents a deeper sense of connectedness, responsibility, greater lovingness and even gratitude for their kids in many ways. Some parents manage to recognize inherited and learned traits of personality of their own through their children. But with Astrology each parent can fully understand which exactly are these traits. The timing of when somebody is born is so accurate -whenever and however this actually happens- that the natal chart of that moment clearly describes the mind set, attitudes and patterns of the parents and how they are wired in the present.
Family Psychology: your child´s evolution begins in your own self awareness
As parents you probably feel responsible for giving your child the best education possible and the best opportunities for him/her to have a happy life. This can be done in all sorts of ways. Astrology however expands the picture of how we consider our children can reach the fullest potential. No thing can be taught as a concept or a value of reference if it is not first part of the parents conscious behavior. You may be aware of limitations in yourself as people that you now can understand and perceive more clearly in your child. Often the living example of your child may be enough to trigger this awareness, sometimes even painfully when the subjects that arise seem destructive or too difficult to change. You may wonder, “if my child is born now in this energy field that is coherent with the family system, can I change at all or is it too late?”. This is the question that tends to arise often when someone perceives a behavior in one´s kid as problematic. The natal chart of when your kid is born reflects your own essential mind set, attitudes and parental patterns at a deep level. So in reality, the question for you as parents is not “can I escape the influence of my childs natal chart?” but rather “how soon can I make a significant change in myself on the issue that my child has inherited from me/us?”. Always remember, Astrology is not an external conditioning factor, it is merely the coherent DNA of life, and it has no limitation power over us, it is us who are responsible for out growing and changing our limitations when we are ready. The information from Astrology can be most helpful for us to understand the family network and make conscious changes wherever needed. If something worth learning does not completely become an integrated part of your behavior it is still valuable that you learn to question yourself on those issues and that when your child is a teenager you can share your awareness with him/her about your specific limitations. As parents you may learn to notice and observe in your child the tendencies that have emerged out of your own nature and way of living. When parents access this type of understanding they are realizing how anything they do or say with their children is related to their own inner dialog, to their own identity and to their personal dilemmas and questions. This makes parenting a much more psychologically rich experience and greatly expands the awareness of spiritual unity that exists between all beings.
Parents also have a chart linked to their own parents: the family network.
At this point you may have wondered if it would be of interest that you knew your own astral chart! The answer is in your hands if you begin to perceive how valuable all this understanding can be. Your own chart is the mirror of how your own parents were and the ingredients from which you make and have made different versions of yourself throughout your life. This mirror reflects the same essential energy that was present in your existence from the very beginning. It becomes even more interesting when you realize which traits you have inherited from each parent and recognize the continuity in the next generation, your own child. The trace of inheritance through a family´s generations is usually very clear because the family´s natal charts offer a birds view perspective of how certain roles, attitudes, and mind sets repeat, reappear and evolve within a family´s history. Through the Planetary DNA of Astrology one can follow each family´s coherent story based on how each generation has lived until the moment of having their offspring.
I hope these have been some valuable and stimulating reflections to add to the reading of your child´s natal chart. The basic version of the reading is more descriptive of the child itself than of what has been explained here. The extended version or the live version of the reading contains explicit connections between child´s chart and the parents, relating issues like the behavior / attitude of parents with patterns in the child´s life. In both cases it is useful to reflect upon these notes before and after the reading. Just so you know, some of the issues that the basic version approaches are:
– SAFE AREAS, TALENTS, STRENGTHS, CAPACITIES
– EMOTIONAL NEEDS: WHAT ARISES ANXIETY AND WHAT WILL BRING SECURITY – CRITICAL POINTS OF DEVELOPMENT AND GROWING UP. ISSUES OF DIFFICULTY AND GREAT POTENTIAL DEVELOPMENT
– INTELIGENCE TYPES, LEARNING STYLE, EDUCATIONAL CONSIDERATIONS.
– VOCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT; NOTION OF CAREER AND PROFESSIONAL DIRECTION
– EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES, SPORTS, HOBBIES AND INTERESTS THAT WILL HELP YOUR CHILDS DEVELOPMENT.
And with the extended version or live version we take it that step furthur and deeper:
– NOTES ON THE IMAGE THAT YOUR SON / DAUGHTER HAS OF IT´S PARENTS. DEVELOPMENT OF FEMALE AND MASCULINE SIDES OF PERSONALITY.
– GUIDANCE FOR FAMILY LIFE AND YOUR CHILDS SELF-ESTEEM
– RELATIONSHIP TO THE GENERATIONAL PLANETS (URANUS, NEPTUNE, PLUTO) AND THE MUNDANE & CULTURAL EVENTS RELATED TO YOUR CHILDS TIME OF BIRTH. ¿HOW IS YOUR CHILD RELATED TO THE WORLD HE/SHE WAS BORN IN?
