I become a mother when I was 34. My son was conceived in December 2016 on a boat over the Great Barrier Reef so there was always a special kind of energy around the pregnancy. A kind of up-side-downness to it as well as we’d skipped away from winter in the UK into Summer in Australia. I can see the connection between the energy -he was conceived when the sun was in Sagittarius and was born with a Sagittarius ascendant- the constellation that was rising when he first drew breath. That means he brings a sort of expansive independent energy. He seeks adventure, learning and making things funny.
A soul that chose me meets the world.
As we look into each other’s eyes, we know at a soul level we’ve met before. This date and time was already agreed. Relief, and a new perspective on life. Nothing else matters. Nothing else can matter.
Leo came to me the day the Sun moved out of Leo in the Sky and into Virgo – the 23rd August. But he clung onto the Leo sunshine and Lion energy, whilst bringing the classic Virgo need for organisation and things being ‘just so’ – a 34 hour labour meant I was just glad he’d finally arrived.
I believe we chose the portal we enter the world through. Leo chose the Virgo sun and moon portal. I chose the Pisces sun and moon portal, (yes we are both doubles so to speak – both having our sun and moon in the same sign). In many ways we are the opposite. As these two signs sit opposing each other in the zodiac wheel. My sun and moon mirrors his sun and moon. Yet we are on the same axis. We ‘get’ each other through our own reflections. ✨
When I was pregnant with him – certainly in the third trimester, I felt his energy, his warmth, his Sagittarius ascendant (he cannot stay still!) And since he’s been born, a new creative side of me has emerged. Pisces in 4th house means my creativity is connected to the home and family. His energetic impact on me is incredible- it makes sense now that I was running a co-working club with a Creche before so he could be closely involved.
Each Monday morning, we’d walk in together and say ‘good morning’ loudly to the staff at the Anglers pub where I ran it. (Don’t get me wrong there were plenty of tantrums too!) But now I get one of the deeper reasons why as well as supporting mums running their own businesses, it just felt right having him close by. It went deeper than mothering instincts. His energy somehow expanded my energy. Now I know human design as well I can see that he has a defined G-Centre – when you have a defined centre, you are able to ‘own’ the energy associated with that area of life. If it’s undefined, you rely more on others and are affected more by the collective energy around you (basically empath traits). So the fact he has a defined area where I have undefined means we can complement each other very well. Of course this is just one small element of our designs that I’m pulling out to look at.
This new perspective feels so right and I’ve always been able to sense this energy, I just now have more of a system and process for putting a name to it and understanding how it manifests. I’m grateful that the last 18 months have given me time to see this new perspective more deeply. To learn Astrology, Numerology, and Human Design. To truly FEEL more deeply, and be ok with sharing this stuff that I always felt I had to hide before.
I now feel a bit like the character in the Queens Gambit ♟ seeing chess pieces moving on the ceiling. Except I see planets, houses and energy types. ✨
I first started working with Astrology more deeply through tuning into the Moon cycle as I find it a really accessible way to access Astrology. Each moon cycle is about a month and every 2.5 days it transits and reflects the energy to us of each different Zodiac sign.
