My Silver Month with Temple of the Twelve has passed. Unlike Black and Pink, I don't want to share my processes. My magick is the magick of Scorpio--private, dark, transformational. It rises out of the Underworld and fills me up with cool, still waters.

Something dormant within me came alive through working with astrology. What was one hobby among many has become a passionate outlet for my unique abilities and intuitive insights. I am very good at what I do and it is a sacred form of service. It battles my sense of insignificance, the knowing that I do have a strong talent here, awakened. I have class and book ideas that I'm going to develop and I will be working with astrology the rest of my life. That is the fruit of my Silver Moon work. What I hope, more than anything, is that it will open a portal for others to step through to discover and reclaim their own brand of magick.

What sort of excellence and power lies dormant within your own skin?

'The natal chart you did for me was insightful, true and magical. It gave me a ton more information than I've had on another professional natal chart, and not only that, but offered practical advice and spiritual suggestions that were personalised for me, and helped me (and still help me) to provide compassion to the weaker aspects of myself, and pathways to strengthen myself and my magic.' ~Ravenari ([livejournal.com profile] moonvoice)

Overhead, at this moment and every moment since our planet began to spin and circle the Sun, the view is changing. The star constellations of the zodiac are marching across the sky. Somewhere out there, though you may not see them, the planets are tracing their way through the constellations as well. The moon, waxing and waning, rising and setting, moves through the constellations and during the year, so does our star--the Sun. Each of these things produces its own energy, its own moments of directed potential, and every second changes that mixture as each planet migrates and interacts with the dance of every other planet. The view, the geometry of motion around you is entirely dependent upon where on this big, beautiful Earth you happen to be standing. You are not the same as everyone born with the Sun in the same zodiac sign. You are not the same as someone born at the exact day and moment you were, either. Your astrological essence is uniquely yours, complex, and powerful. The pattern overhead at the moment of your birth will not be repeated for about 25,000 years!

You were born into this embodied life and at the moment of your first breath, you inhaled the energies of the planets, the Sun, the Moon mid-dance in the sky--both visible and hidden below the horizon. At that moment, you were blessed with natural abilities and personality traits. As a witch, your first pentacle was traced upon your Soul. Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit were poured into you in varying doses. Your strengths and weaknesses, your elemental allies, a clear path for learning were laid out in that moment, that unique-to-your-birth moment.

What does your birth chart reveal about you? What are the main learning themes of this life? As a witch, what special magickal or intuitive powers were you born with? How do the elements support and guide you? What past life knowledge is your Soul bringing into this life and what is it here to learn? What will lend support in overcoming your greatest challenges? Where are you powerful? How can you be, at heart, truly yourself? What are the legacies of the birth gifts the Universe gave you? What does your unique pentacle look like?

Astrology is a 4,000 year old art that anyone can study. If, however, you'd like me to lend my own intuitive insights to your natal chart, I'll be taking a few clients this month. For $75, you'll receive an emailed report introducing you to your Inner God, Inner Goddess, Inner Child, and Traveling Soul. We'll investigate the baser elements--Earth, Fire, Water, and Air within your chart to see how the elements have formed your personality and circumstances. I'll let you know which tarot cards best personify your strengths *and* the places you are meant to grow within this lifetime. I'll also tell you, as a witch, what your natural magickal and intuitive abilities most were from birth.

To those of you who bravely stepped forward and withstood the scorching spotlight of a natal chart interpretation at my hands, you'll see that I value fairness above all. :) So below, under the cut, is a study of my own astrological essence, written as much as possible from the perspective of an outside observer relying solely on astrological evidence. It's me--warts and all.

For those of you who haven't had one done, here's a sample of just what I do with about twenty hours of blood, sweat, and tears. :) :D

A Witch's Stars: The Astrological Essence of Rachel Melcher


Dear Rachel,

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to study and comment upon your natal chart. It has been an honor. I came to astrology, reluctantly, through newspaper horoscopes. I hated the idea that there were only twelve kinds of people in the world and yet couldn't help but feel some sense of identifying with "my sign". True astrology, though, is so much more complex and interesting! So complex, in fact, that the geometry and details of someone's natal chart will not be duplicated for 25,000 years! You are essentially one-of-a-kind and the gifts from the Universe at your birth, your Witch's Stars, are not the same as anyone else's. You are uniquely suited to fill a need in the world, endowed with your own super-powers and set upon the path of your own spiritual evolution. Everything you started this life with is reflected in your natal chart and now the question is--what will you do with it? :)

My Astrological Report--Under the Cut )

1) I am slowly healing from surgery. Today marks my eighth day home from the hospital. The incision in my back hasn't finished closing yet, so I'm still stuck wearing big gauze bandages and taking sponge baths. Despite all our precautions, I caught a cold from Graeme as soon as I got home and all the congestion and all-night-long coughing is doing a number on healing that incision. On a few days, I was too active (walking up and down the stairs, mostly) and left feeling reinjured and miserable, so I've taken to a mostly bedridden state. I spend a few hours a day in a chair, but otherwise all of this writing comes from a prone position in bed with my laptop hauled on top of me. I haven't left the house in eight days. It is maddening. I've been prolific here on LiveJournal, catching up with all that Diana's Grove and Temple of the Twelve and other stuff I wanted to talk about, but really the highlight of my day is having the junk mail delivered to where I'm laying in bed. I'm not good at being patiently, helplessly incapacitated!

2) My mother-in-law is in town for the long weekend. She's delivering food and water to me and taking full care of Graeme while she's here. (Daniel has taken the opportunity to get some much needed work done.) I had no idea how much I'd need the help!

3) Today I got back into my astrology natal chart readings. Knowing now what next month's color is for Temple of the Twelve, I have no doubts that this has come blazing upon me so suddenly for a reason and that it will stick around and be solidified as a vital practice for me by the end of next month. If you are on the waiting list to have your chart done, I'm back on the queue and working my way towards you. :) If you've already received yours, I hope you'll encourage those left stranded and waiting by my surgery that it will be worth the delay. :D

4) While abed, I've devoured Tamora Pierce's Immortals series as well as Katharine Howe's The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane. I'd read more, but I just don't have much in the way of focused concentration. I've also watched some things, streaming, from Netflix. The hours of my days, and nights, pass sooooooo slowly. If you've posted to LJ this past week, thank you for providing part of my continued sanity! :)

5) I have every intention of keeping my Pink Altar up far beyond the month's scope for Temple of the Twelve. It fills me with delight, certainty, center, and Self. There's no doubt that I find great purpose in life, everyday, in "Pink" pursuits--kindness, compassion, gentle healing, acceptance. It is just so lovely and affirming and right, taking such pride of place in my home. :)

What does your birth chart reveal about you? What are the main learning themes of this life? As a witch, what special magickal or intuitive powers were you born with? How do the elements support and guide you? What crystal, plant, and animal allies are you naturally aligned with? Which could lend support in overcoming your greatest challenges? Where are you powerful? How can you be, at heart, truly yourself? What are the legacies of the birth gifts the Universe gave you? What does your pentacle look like?

Astrology is a study that anyone can undertake. Your birth chart will never change but you could spend a lifetime understanding its impact on you and your personality. You don't need me, though I love the scholarship and intuitive flow of astrology. If you'd like help understanding and interpreting your birth chart, I'll be offering my services throughout the next month or so. For $25 (which goes entirely into my flooring fund for [livejournal.com profile] mermaiden and [livejournal.com profile] willow_cabin), I'll spend a few weeks with your chart and write up a report on my findings, the common themes, and how that may be affecting you as a witch. I'll include advice on some crystal/plant/animal allies you might want to get to know and others that will offer you more of a growth challenge.

If you're interested, you can email me at songtoisis@gmail.com or leave a note in the comments. :)
