If you follow me on Twitter, then you’d probably know that lately I’ve been diving more into astrology and learning more about it. I’m not 100% relying on it, but I’ve been using it to examine myself, and also just trying to be more spiritual. And can I say, I’ve started to discover more of an inner peace within myself? And also, I’m slowly (but surely) allowing myself to just go with the flow.
I don’t have a religion, nor do I mock anyone who does. I’m not writing this to disregard anyone’s religious believes. I’m only writing this to share my own, and maybe hopefully connect more with those who actually care about the things that I write on here.
Growing up in a racially diverse family as well as a religiously diverse family, exposed me to different people of different racial backgrounds and religious backgrounds. Growing up this way, I think made me much more open minded and understanding of different people, and I’m thankful for this! However, I’m not going to lie, religiously, it made me very confused.
Which was the right religion? If only one religion is right, did that mean some of my family would go to hell? What if no one in my family isn’t apart of the right religion? You know all of those sort of questions brewed in my head. This lead me to becoming agnostic. Meaning: I do believe in a higher power, but I do not have a religion. However, still with that decision being made, I still wasn’t very spiritual which was something that I deeply needed, but didn’t realize.
Astrology had always been something that intrigued me, but again, I took it all with a grain of salt. Yes, I’ve always known that I do possess a lot of the qualities associated with a Gemini: talkative, creative, indecisive, forgetful, and adaptive. Some may call me flirtatious, but honestly I’m terrible at it! However, I didn’t really look much into it than knowing the sign that comes with the month and day, you were born on. My French teacher was super into astrology like to the point where she’d try to sit people in class based on their signs to avoid conflicts in class. She would ask us about our crushes and what their signs were…which every time, I told her about my crush, it was always a sign that I wasn’t compatible with. And let’s just say….my dating life in high school was non existent.
Maybe, there is some truth in astrology. Maybe, it was my out look on life and the energy, I was putting out into the world. Maybe, it was just all apart of how things are meant to go. Or maybe, it’s a combination of all three. And that is what I believe. I think there is a truth to astrology, a truth to the energy you put out into the world, and also that there is already some sort of set plan for us. If you believe something different that is 100% okay! As I said earlier, I made the decision to take time to learn more about astrology.
Learning more about astrology: like your moon sign, your sun sign, etc. I’m still getting the hang of all the different terms and really learning everything about astrology. Examining a natal chart and learning what each piece means has made me examine myself more: the good parts and bad parts of myself. It has caused me to take a deeper look at myself and the way I connect with others on all levels. I started writing more in a journal I have; I started watching different Tarot card readings on YouTube for more insight. I’ve even began to start mediating!
And, I’ve found an inner peace sort of. Or starting to at least. From looking at my natal chart, I’ll probably always be indecisive because my moon sign also happens to be Gemini. Obviously, I still worry about things and how they’ll turn out; however, I’ve also become more okay with going with the flow and letting things be and fall into place. In certain areas of my life where I tried to force things, I’ve stopped, and I’ve really relinquished so much of wanting to shape things and let the universe and or God do their work. I know I can’t be passive either, but I’ve been more okay with letting things be. Also, I’ve been working really hard on putting out more positive energy into the world. Since I’ve been doing that, I’ve slowly started to see things change in my life. And most of it has all been positive.
Of course, life won’t always be amazing because that’s how life goes. However, I’ve been changing my mind set/out look on life. And man, does it make such a difference. Again, I don’t know if it’s 100% because of astrology, or that I’ve been more positive and trying to go with the flow more, or if it’s just what God and or the universe has intended for me, but which it is, I’m happy. I’d like to believe it’s a combination of it all.
Sorry, if this feels more like me just speaking out into the void and not putting together a more concise point. But I just wanted to put this out into the universe sorta. Whatever your religious or spiritual believes are embrace them cause it could bring you more wonderful gifts than you expected.
