What is a birth horoscope?

A birth horoscope is the frozen moment of your birth. This “map” of the stars at that particular moment you carry inside of yourself for the rest of your life. In your birth horoscope an Astrologer can see talents, where you find your biggest potential, your personality as a whole, family background, tensions in personality and emotional life and health. All this is based on your place of birth and your exact birth time. This is miles away from so called magazine horoscopes that most of the times offers a too far stretched generalization based on solely the sun sign, Sagittarius, Libra etc. Did you know for example that you carry all the different signs inside of you? – Just that some of them are more strongly emphasized than others.
What can be more valuable then knowing where in life you have the biggest potentials to succeed and at the same time feel that you are at the right place, where you feel at home emotionally and not only living up to others standards. The horoscope can also show in which areas you have to work on in order to gain a better balance. The horoscope tells a lot about the emotional needs of a specific individual.
Some have better self knowledge then others, and some need some help on their way. This is where I as an Astrologer can help you.
The horoscope is not something that is carved in stone, luckily. It is strong currents that can be changed by free will and determination but those are still powerful forces that pull us in certain directions.


Neptune – Walk the fog

Thinking of Neptune again…Neptunes placement in a persons birth chart always makes me a bit lost, thinking about it and try to interpret it, which is exactly the character of Neptune :P
Neptune can mean dissolved boundaries and fog. The rational mind doesn’t seem to work very well when we are strongly influenced by Neptune. Maybe going through a Neptune phase is like navigating through the fog with your senses instead of using the rational mind. To try to clear the fog with the rational mind is not possible I think when you have to deal with Neptunes power. And that is not Neptunes purpose either.
Somehow I believe that where Neptune transits in your birth chart is a place that needs to be “cleared out” from material energy. It´s an inward motion in that house that wants to explore the spiritual side of being a human and the things connected to that particular house. Neptune forces us to take a look inside of our self to find the answer. Forces I say because this is what happen when Neptune dissolves the boundaries that we sometimes hold to tightly to. When the boundaries and outer structures are dissolved we have no other choice then to look inside of our self to find this something to hold on to inside of our self. Maybe Neptunes lesson is, whatever house it transits, or where it is in the natal chart, to teach us that the material world is not any safer to hold on to then to our inner abilities and intuition. The structures of the material world are fragile, although many people knows this intellectually they/ we still put a lot of effort to build material structures around us. But are those structures more reliable then structures built from the inside of a person?
Every planet comes with its own lessons. And sometimes we have to learn it the hard way.
But Neptune is the least material planet of all, and when it makes a significant transit in your horoscope it won´t care how much you´ve “built” in this area of your life. You find yourself in a fog and the only thing you can hold on to is your senses and intuition. Sometimes it´s a pleasant fog, sometimes the more scary variant. But you will walk through the fog, try to relax, and trust that your senses will lead you to where you are meant to be. And finally you will find yourself outside the fog in a completely new place.
