The truth is that the archetypal languages (like astrology, numerology, and colour) won't make the challenges or obstacles in our lives any easier. We'll still go through experiences that are going to be painful.
But . . . in seeking the guidance of the archetypal languages, we're engaging a spiritual path that centres us inside whatever is unfolding. The archetypal languages support and empower us to take a step back from our 'stories' and see the Bigger Picture of what is actually going on - to make what is otherwise unconscious conscious.
By viewing our experiences through an archetypal lens, we can embrace them for what they are: opportunities for Soul growth, rather than perpetually wondering, "Why does this keep happening to me???"
They also remind us to open ourselves to the wisdom and might of Great Mystery, without demanding that it limit or conform itself to our modern addiction to reason and logic. Can you appreciate the level of childish hubris we display when we insist that the eternal, limitless Life Force or Cosmic Mind restrict itself to only those notions that our human minds can comprehend???
It's more than hubris ... it's ludicrous!
As the brilliant Sufi poet, Hafiz, once wrote:
Someone Should Start Laughing
I have a thousand brilliant lies
For the question: How are you?
I have a thousand brilliant lies For the question: What is God?
If you think that the Truth can be known From words,
If you think that the Sun and the Ocean Can pass through that tiny opening Called the mouth,
Oh, someone should start laughing!
Someone should start wildly laughing, Now!
We are instead guided to surrender to our Soul's highest intentions as revealed in our natal charts. Do we have the courage to sincerely offer the prayer suggested by Caroline Myss, "I consent for my life to be dismantled and restructured in accordance with my highest purpose." At this level, we truly see the highest potential of our incarnation, and are able to take full responsibility for our life.
The archetypal languages also remind us that literal information, such as our birth name and date of birth, is useless if we fail to use it as an ascension point to a more symbolic perspective. By revealing the Blueprint of our Soul's intentions for this lifetime, we're gifted a greater level of Soul guidance and wisdom than otherwise exists at this mundane, rational level of human consciousness. Indeed, we're reminded to lift our eyes to that which is eternal. We realise the presence of a loyal, unseen force that weaves its way through everything we've ever experienced. We're blessed to realise that we belong to something far greater; something that will not abandon nor exclude us!
What a relief to know that we're not at the mercy of random, pointless situations and people! We're actually empowered, bold Souls doing extraordinary work, through precise events and relationships that support our Path.
We come to understand that Life has always had our back. Nothing has ever been random. And everything we've ever experienced has loyally served our Soul's growth. Considering how chaotic life can seem at times, this awareness of an underlying purpose and intelligence is truly a magnificent gift.
