If you’re someone who knows astrology is important but you haven’t worked with it yet, or you feel like you beat yourself up all the time and you have shame about your personality or about your habits or about your limiting beliefs, this show is for you. I want more people to understand who they really are on a huge broad level, not who your parents were and where you grew up and what you do for a living. I’m talking about who you are in this universe, who you are as a physical being, and who you decided to express yourself as in this lifetime.
I am not an Astrologer, but I’ve been studying astrology for about 20 years. I use astrology to help people understand energetic patterns, beliefs, ways of looking at the world, and how they resonate and vibrate with them. Then working with those energies to become compassionate about them, to work with them, not against them, to not judge yourself for them, to accept them as they are, because you chose it. You chose to come in this lifetime as this person, so what is it about your personality that determines how you interpret information? How do you interpret feelings, how do you look at the world, how do you interact with others, and what is of value to you? I think that’s all very valuable.
When it comes to emotional eating and exercise, your astrological blueprint really can tell me and you a lot about how you feel or don’t feel emotions. And a lot of times, people are very detached from their bodies. People use food or substances to repress feeling something uncomfortable because for example, maybe if you are a water sign, there’s so much emotion there that it scares you. So there are different expressions within astrology that can lead us to understand more about how to break those patterns, how to add things into your life that support your processing of emotions, so that you don’t try to repress them, so that you’re comfortable in them, so that you can now release them, so that you can connect with your body and you can use your intuition on a deeper level. And when we look at your different elements, the elements will tell us information about what’s easy for you and what’s something you need to learn.
There are 12 signs, four elements, and the elements all have energy. These energies all have sort of shadow sides and light sides. They all have weaknesses and strengths. They all fit into the puzzle very nicely and neat, and they all create balance when they’re all together. Having too much of one kind of element can cause imbalance. So for example, when someone has a lot of fire in them, they need to use it. Exercise and burning off that energy becomes a necessary part of you feeling calm and peaceful, about you not repressing emotion and releasing anxiety. For me, going rollerblading these days is about connecting with my spirit and my body in an easy-flowing kind of way where I get downloads. My subconscious, my inner being, my connection to source comes very clearly through me when I’m rollerblading. And it’s not about the exercise. So for me, the benefit becomes I need to go do it more because I want to be more in alignment. I want to be more in my body. I want to be more connected and balanced, not just because of exercise. In fact, doing it for exercise doesn’t even motivate me, but doing it for spiritual alignment and connection does. So when you understand the energies at play within your individual self, then you know how to utilize them, how to maximize them, how to balance them. It can make sense of why you’re dealing with anxiety or emotional eating because you were just trying to repress all of this energy that wants to come out of you and you don’t have an outlet for it.
You can do your own chart for free. Go to www.astro.com and do a free profile. What I always pull up is the personality profile, and I just jump down to the planets. When I hand it to people or have them do it, I disclaim that I didn’t write it. So it may resonate with you. It may not. I look at the planets and then take it from there.
So astrology, to me, is a no-brainer. I started doing it because, to me, it’s truth. To me, it’s the ingredients of who you are. You are more than what you appear to be. You’re more than your sun sign. You’re more than the family you came from. Anyone that has children can say very quickly that your child, whether it be in the womb or within the first week, had a personality. Well, they didn’t get that from you. They came into the world like that, and the more we can work with that, the more you can heal things.

If you enjoyed that blog by JJ and want to dive deeper into astrology, check out JJ’s astrology course you can order and listen to at your own pace. I loved taking this course! So many people think astrology is all about your sun sign which is just a piece of the puzzle. Your sun sign is the core you. Moon is your emotions. Mercury is communication. Venus is love. Your north node or true node is your life purpose. Learning the characteristics of each of your signs and of others can help you understand better why people react the way they do. My sun sign is Taurus but my life purpose is Sagittarius and my moon is Leo. This course shows that even though the earth part of me likes security, the fire sides want action! You will learn so much and will want to chart all your friends and family!
