We’ve known scientifically that everything is energy for almost a hundred years, but we still don’t want to accept many of the ways that this energy manifests and works with our own. Nikola Tesla said, “If you wish to understand the universe, think of energy, frequency and vibration?”

I used to not believe in astrology, but I find it incredibly on-point and helpful when you get past sun-signs generalizations and really work with all the planetary alignments as they relate to your chart — something that is incredibly complex and that I rely on others to help me do because it’s too complicated for my brain to figure out except in the most basic of ways.

Richard Tarnas is a scientist who was a skeptic, but who eventually became one of the foremost astrologers around today. In his book Cosmos and Psyche, he says that astrology is like a clock on the wall. It doesn’t create time, it just tells you what time it is. This makes sense to me and my own experiences with astrology.

As someone who does woo-woo work as a part of my profession, I’ve long since given up caring if people think it’s stupid or naive. I’ve seen too many amazing things that cannot be explained in any other way and it helps me in my life, just as it helps other people in theirs. That’s what is most important to me.
