Fun Fact: I refer to myself as a musician first primarily because I view the entire dance of life as One—Big—Symphony.
And yet! My foremost passions have remained composing, producing and performing music since as long as I can remember.
While I revere music for capturing diverse truths of life as “felt-sense” — I admire Evolutionary Astrology for capturing the logic of our reality in unlike yet equally relatable terms:
Music Swoons—while Astrology Shines-a-Light on the energy dynamics comprising reality as-we-know-it.
I see the ultimate healing power of both Music & Astrology in their shared ability to validate and put precise language to what already is – from the perspective of our contrasting poles of existence. The work of healing, after all, is the work of bridging opposites.
And this is the work of The Light & The Weight: to demystify how we perpetuate opposition in our lives and to model a new paradigm for expanding our consciousness in harmony with the laws of nature.
Astrology & Music complete each other in the sense that one works chiefly to Enlighten as the other works mainly to Embody. The existence and synergy of both in the human experience is the force that creates pathways for emotional assimilation and wisdom that couldn’t otherwise blossom!
The following excerpt from Dr. Brené Brown’s book, Rising Strong, enlivens my point here:
“Creativity embeds knowledge so that it can become practice. We move what we’re learning from our heads to our hearts through our hands. We are born makers, and creativity is the ultimate act of integration — it is how we fold our experiences into our being… The Asaro tribe of Indonesia and Papua New Guinea has a beautiful saying: ‘Knowledge is only a rumor until it lives in the muscle.’”
To more deeply activate the healing potential that Evolutionary Astrology shines onto our lives, I additionally offer Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) sessions in both stand-alone and packaged formats. This powerful tool, rising from the Energy Psychology field, is especially apt at surgically removing our unique emotional blocks that are handily revealed in any astrology reading.
As you can see on my services page, I offer either/or & both/and types of counseling and healing packages involving Astrology, EFT, and sometimes Music. All you need to do is select whichever option is the best fit for you and contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
By now it’s obvious that my overall my approach to Music, Evolutionary Astrology, EFT and Counseling is transdisciplinary with an emphasis on reflecting the innate connectedness, and thus ultimate Wholeness, of all of life. I believe that our calling at this pivotal point in human evolution is to navigate the relativity of life on Earth not with sanctimony but with our compass pointed toward curiosity and compassion.
My litmus test for leadership, action and production can be framed by the question, “Does it lead with love?” Embedded in this question is an acknowledgment of Earthly paradox and its emergent need for more nuanced and truthful answers to our global issues than merely “good vs. bad” and “old vs. new.”
Sending love your way!
