About Emma ♆

“We need not feel ashamed of flirting with the zodiac. The zodiac is well worth flirting with.”  D.H. Lawrence

 

My website started as a way for me to sort out my identity as an astrologer. As my relationship with astrology evolves I am also using this space chartas a container to explore my passion for visual culture, witchcraft, and writing, as well as a place to offer my astrology readings. I hope to create a space for cosmic mystery to be explored and discussed, for commentary on the nature of magic, spirit communication, and the occult. I have always felt that my spirit is on this Earth to assist others in accepting themselves for who they are without judgement, to hold space for people to have the freedom to be their true self.

 

I am a Capricorn Sun, Taurus Rising, Aries Moon, North Node in Aquarius and Pluto in Scorpio.

Evolution

What is Evolutionary Astrology? The Evolutionary Astrology perspective relies heavily upon the placement of Pluto in the natal chart and on the North and South Nodes of the Moon. It delves into past incarnations and patterns that have been on repeat for many lifetimes. Jeffrey Wolf Green and Steven Forrest are credited with pioneering and developing evolutionary astrology methods. My astrological approach draws upon strategies found in their books along with my own personal spiritual experiences of my connection to the divine. I integrate the teachings I learned from my teachers at the Portland School of Astrology to create a dynamic approach to astrology. I keep dogma to a minimum but still work within patterns to maintain consistency in my readings.

What I love about evolutionary astrology is how it allows me to tap into the energy currents of past incarnations and bring that into the present moment. I can bring depth, freedom, and clarity to current issues in my life that may not make sense otherwise.

In looking at the nodal placements in my own chart, the North Node in Aquarius and the South Node in Leo has given me a better understanding of where my soul has been spiritually in past lives and what my soul is driven towards in this current incarnation. I feel we move between cyclical and linear time throughout our lives residing in multiple dimensions at once. This explains to my linear mind the places where dreaming occurs, what being in trance is, or what access to a past life memory is.

I was born with Pluto in Scorpio, which sets up the context of my past lives. I get to share this intense placement with other people born during my Pluto generation approximately 1983-1995. The planets that aspect Pluto in my natal chart give me details on the characters and circumstances that have re-enterred this life with me. The soul is not separate from the life in the present. As Jeffery Wolf Green teaches, we are trying to find a balance between the desire to be separate from the divine and the desire to return to the source of the divine. I feel this contributes to my struggle of being in a human body. Pain mixed with extreme joy in trying to navigate who I am in the context of a mysterious universe.

As my sun is at 14 degrees Capricorn I am just now making it through the intense transiting Pluto conjunct my natal sun. I have been experiencing this transit for most of my adult life and will continue to feel it for a while. This transit has deeply taught me about my personal power, integrating my shadow self, and finding my voice.

Venus, which is my natal chart ruling planet, sits at this Sabian Symbol:
