Choosing Your Reality
The other day I was asked a question that surprised me.
It didn't surprise me because it was a crazy question, it surprised me because I had never thought to
ask it before. The question was this:
How do you want to be seen and what affect do you want to have on people?
This questions surprised me because I realized in that moment I have a pretty strong belief that goes something like this:
'People see you however they feel like seeing you; and I don't really have much say in the matter, so might as well not waste too much energy on thinking about it.'
Sounds pretty normal, even beneficial, unless you are shifted out of that thought process like I was the other day into the new awareness that we actually have the ability, the power, to CHOOSE how we are seen by others.
In other words, that we actually have the power to create a reality of our choosing, and then invite others to join us in it.
After thinking about it for a bit I decided that I want to create a reality where I'm seen as a soft, benevolent, truth bomber.
Some sort of a mix between the goddesses Quan Yin, Athena and Eris.
And I think I've found the perfect mascot for that - Alanis Moressette's character of 'God' in Dogma. With just a touch (or say, a mention of something in your chart) the fog lifts from your eyes as limiting beliefs are dropped with this new piece of truth.
And this truth sinks in even more when you add proof to it, especially proof you've come to from your own dot-connecting.
This is why I teach Astrology.
As you learn new pieces of the puzzle (the meaning of this House or that Planet...) and then integrate these new pieces into your chart, you start making connections as to why you experience the world the way you do. This then leads to my end-all-be-all goal for all my students, or anyone else for that matter, which is this:
Deep, powerful, fully-seen validation of who they are.
This deep validation and 'seen-ness' is so important to me because I deeply understand how to feels to be in-validated and un-seen, having spent most of my life being mislabeled and misunderstood.
As is the case with all healers, We Teach What We Need.
So I can think of no greater gift to give than that of full, complete validation and 'seen'-ness.
This is my ultimate goal for myself and others in this life, and in all my years of searching, I have found Astrology to accomplish this better than any other avenue ventured.
For those of you who might have a more casual relationship with this deity, let me try and describe Astrology to you.
Image if you took the most profound spiritual teacher, the wisest philosopher, the deepest psychotherapist, the most brilliant mathematician, the smartest systems analyst, and your most trusted confidant, and rolled them all up into a single being.
That deity would be called Astrology, and me and her are the best of friends.
Together, we're on a mission to heal the world, one deeply-seen soul at a time.
So, if you are in need of some 'seen'-ness, most particularly from your own eyes, might I suggest diving down the rabbit hole of learning Astrology.
Helping people discover their own truth bombs of soul-shaking validation through teaching them Astrology is hands down my favorite thing in this world to do.
That and ski ball of course.
"Veronica is a gifted teacher. She has the ability to take something so complex, like astrology, and break it down into something digestible, fun, and easy to learn. Seriously. I was really impressed with how simple she made astrology to be. I looked forward to our classes every week, and am now able to read a person's chart on various topics, including romance, career, life purpose. I find the ability to read another language (of symbols) to be empowering. Veronica is patient, fun to learn from, generous with her knowledge and time. I definitely recommend her, and have already told many people about her."
"Veronica brought Astrology to life for me in a way that I hadn't experienced in my prior courses and personal researching. If you are looking for a beautifully composed and comprehensible course in astrology, I highly recommend her teaching! Her brilliant use of props is what inspired me to explore characters and costumes that would go with those props! Thank you for sparking my imagination and inspiring me to embrace myself as an astrologer! I am so grateful for her and everything she activated within me. She activated a deeper awareness of the fact that I was indeed meant to be an Astrologer."
