Ep. 6: Finding your purpose later in life and looking to astrology for guidance with Salim Catrina

Have you ever interviewed your former boss for a podcast? That’s exactly what I did for this episode!

Salim Catrina is my former boss and current friend, and we took a deep dive into her natal chart during this chat.

This episode is for you if you’ve ever felt like a late bloomer or like you’re finding your purpose later in life.

Salim opens up about how her family, and partner, and job are great, but she’s still looking for something bigger than those things to light her up.

Salim’s chart is one of the most striking I’ve seen for someone who has traveled extensively and lived abroad – serious Sagittarius energy!

Tune in if you want to laugh along with us and hear what a reading with me might be like!

I feel like the things that I you think that will give you or what the world tells you will give you, quote, unquote, purpose in your life are not exactly it at least for me. – Salim Catrina

Salim and I also chat about:

  • Finding balance with your north node and south node
  • Fighting against fiery energy vs surrendering to it – when is fighting against the fight not working?
  • Relationships as a reflection of parts of yourself
  • What it’s like to live abroad in Italy
  • Astrology as a language, and how to choose the right interpreter of the stars for you (aka astrologer) based on your style and preference
  • Interpreting astrology is not about explaining “the thing” it’s about translating the symbols and geometry into concepts or potential concerns in a way the person understands (without having to learn all about astrology)
  • What it’s like having lots of retrograde planets in your chart
  • Finding your purpose in life after 40, outside your kids, your partner, or your career
  • Looking to your north node and midheaven in your chart when it comes to finding your purpose
  • How the midheaven isn’t just about career, but is about your larger calling in life
  • What having a Capricorn midheaven is like and how it might be frustrating to not have a goal to strive toward
  • Being a late bloomer and how to know if you’ve “bloomed”
  • Why your natal chart is your soul’s blueprint (and how validating that is!)
  • What it’s like to have mercury retrograde conjunct your midheaven
  • What it’s like having your north node square your midheaven
  • Working with a grand trine in fire, feeling comfortable taking initiative, but sometimes fiery energy may come too easily

Hi, Salim.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:00:00

Welcome to It's Astrological.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:00:02

I'm so happy to have you.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Hello, Lynnette.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

It is great to be here.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:00:06

So Salim and I are former colleagues,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:00:09

just like everyone else I've interviewed on this podcast so far,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:00:12

but Salim was actually my boss and she's the best boss I've ever had.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:00:16

And I've had some really good bosses and some of them are

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:00:19

also my very good friends.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:00:21

but I am just so grateful that Salim and I not only had an excellent working

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:00:25

relationship, but now we're like BFFs too.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:00:27

So the best

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:00:29

Love that

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:00:30

I know So, Salim, so everyone else can get to

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:00:33

know you where in the world are you?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:00:35

And can you tell us a little bit more about your cultural background?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:00:39

I can.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:00:40

I currently find myself in the bay area of California, and have

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:00:45

lived here for about 10 years.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:00:47

my cultural background is.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:00:50

Today, very bay area back in the day was very unique.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:00:53

But anyway, my dad and my mom were these great people.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:00:58

My dad was Italian.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:00:59

My mom was Pakistani.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:01:00

We had this sort of weird tense mix of Catholic and Muslim things

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:01:06

in my house when I was a kid.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:01:08

and today I've sort of brought that into my house because we live in a mixed house

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:01:14

of our own in the bay area because my husband is Italian and I am suburban.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:01:19

I am suburban American.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:01:22

And so our kids are also growing up with a mixed background.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:01:26

but yes, that's a little about me, I guess.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

That is very dynamic.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

And I think one of the reasons why I've so enjoyed talking to you about life,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

but also astrology is because your life experiences just show up so beautifully

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

in your chart and your travels.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

And, just how you show up in the world, which is what astrology does.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

But, every time I see your chart and just compare it to who you

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

are, I'm like, oh, that's so Salim.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

So excited to dig into it.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:01:57

for sure.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:01:58

The travel aspects of my chart have always blown me away.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:02:01

That is such a huge part of who I am.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:02:03

And then the fact that it's in my chart in those really important

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:02:07

moments of my life is so cool to me.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:02:10

I love

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:02:10

Yeah.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:02:11

So while we're on the topic, since It's Astrological, do you know

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:02:15

your sun, moon and rising signs?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:02:18

I do.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:02:18

I think my sun sign is Sagittarius, obviously.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:02:21

Yes,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:02:22

So obviously, and I think both, my moon and my rising

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:02:25

are Aries, I think that's how it is.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:02:28

Is that right?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

you're rising is Aries.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Your moon is Aquarius actually.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:02:34

Okay then, no, I didn't know the full set.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:02:37

you probably don't remember the three,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:02:39

like if you're not looking at it every day, most people only know their

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:02:42

sun signs, so you're doing great.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:02:44

Interesting that I didn't remember that.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:02:46

I feel like I've learned that before about the moon sign,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:02:48

but I did not stick with me.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:02:50

I wonder if my parents are both Aquarians as, are you.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:02:53

And so I don't know if there's some sort of like, not because

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:02:56

of you more on my parents.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:02:57

Same

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:03:01

thing that I would resist about it.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:03:06

So obviously your moon got left in the

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:03:09

dust a little bit, but how do you feel about your sun moon and or rising signs?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:03:14

Like, Do you resonate with them?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:03:16

Are you still figuring things out?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:03:18

What do you think about those?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:03:19

Yeah, probably the latter, because I don't

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:03:21

know enough about Aquarius to, or how the moon affects things, but I definitely

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:03:29

feel so Sagittarius as my sun is the most appropriate ever of my life.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:03:36

Like I feel like it's super fitting.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:03:37

And the fact that my, ascendente, my rising sign is Aries is

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:03:43

also really appropriate at the same time in my elder years.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:03:48

That would be the recent timeframe.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:03:50

Um, I don't know.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:03:51

I kind of feel like I would like to be less war like than I tend to be.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:03:56

So I wonder if there's something I can learn from that Aquarian part of me.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:04:01

yeah.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:04:02

you have such an interesting, chart, but your ascendant

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:04:07

is like, you know, the okay.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:04:10

Emoji on the phone, you know how, if you zoom in really, really close,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:04:15

there's like a little tiny space in between the thumb and the forefinger.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I had never noticed that,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:04:20

Okay.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I hope everyone looks that

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

up now because I sure will.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

But that's how close your

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

ascendant is to your south node.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

So they are like kissing in the sky and that's a really strong placement.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Because your south node is where you've been before.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

It's the gifts that you're bringing in, but it's like maybe in your past

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

life, you were an actual warrior or a soldier or some sort of like very

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

intense advocate or something like that.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

And with your ascendant being so close to that in being such a huge part

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

of who you are and how you see the world, that's a stronger connection

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

than most people have to the part of themselves that maybe they're

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

looking to outgrow in this lifetime.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

So I know that sometimes you have struggled with fighting for lack of a

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

better word, And being the first one out there and having to make your voice

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

heard and all of that stuff in certain situations but That makes perfect sense,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

given that your north node is in Libra, the sign of relationship and partnership

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

and not being on your own and not taking on those battles by yourself, but it's

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

even like, how do I say this, that warrior piece of you, it's not just that it's in

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

your first house, it's even more connected to who you are then most other people.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

So for you it's almost like, you need a stronger aha moment or realization

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

or determination that you're going to grow away from that, that you're

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

going to step away from that.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Because it's just a, it's like part of your DNA.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

So it's because you're able to tap into it the minute you need it.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

it's so comfortable for you.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

It's such a place where you can tap into that whenever you need it.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

But the lesson for you in this lifetime is how do I not need that so much?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Or how do I step away from that

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:06:14

That is so like right now it's especially

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:06:17

like today and yesterday I have super been feeling this right.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:06:21

That part of me is the most comfortable in the most natural.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:06:24

And I'm almost like a little bit tired of fighting against it because it's like,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:06:29

if you constantly have to fight against something that comes so naturally to

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:06:33

you, are you also just working too hard?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:06:36

At the same time I didn't know that about my north node either

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:06:40

and the whole Libra part of me.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:06:42

I do not feel very connected to.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:06:44

And especially right now, I'm dealing with a new environment where it's

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:06:47

all about teamwork and like somebody is right at your elbow every second.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:06:52

And I, I appreciate it.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:06:56

I do, I appreciate it.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:06:57

I know there is something to be had in that there is value to be had in that,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:07:01

but it really feels confining to me.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:07:03

And so it feels very unnatural to me every day.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:07:07

So it's an opportunity for sure, to like, embrace something that

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:07:11

I don't naturally tend towards.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:07:12

Like, why only do the things that are by default, for sure.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:07:16

But yes.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:07:18

It's super interesting to know that it's at the opposite end of

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:07:21

from my aries-ness or whatever.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:07:23

yeah, And that's, I mean, everyone's north and south

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:07:26

node are completely opposite each other.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:07:28

That's the whole point, right?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:07:29

I think you're going in one direction and you're leaving another one, but

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:07:32

we always have a choice when it comes to them, because sometimes we are

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:07:36

in the mood to push ourselves and to try something new and to grow.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:07:39

And sometimes we are in the mood to be comfortable and to use the gifts

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:07:44

that have come to us in this lifetime.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:07:46

And both of them are totally fine.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:07:48

But what you mentioned about like you're fighting against the fighting, so

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:07:52

that's like, how do you neutralize that?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:07:56

how do you surrender to it?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:07:59

And maybe that's a different perspective maybe you surrender to the fight in

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:08:04

you instead of like the fighting.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:08:07

and it may even be a period of observation about where you feel it in your body or

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:08:12

where you almost feel the resistance cause sometimes I feel like, especially with

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:08:18

Aries, it's the first sign of the Zodiac.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:08:20

So you just jump right in.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:08:21

And the old adage for Aries is ready, fire aim.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:08:25

So you may be in situations where you're doing stuff before you even realize it.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:08:30

And then after the fact you're like, why did I jump into that?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:08:33

Or why did I go into that fight?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:08:34

And I didn't even have the chance to think about it.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

yeah, very much.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

So I did the full moon in Scorpio spread this morning and, A bunch

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

of cards were kind of about like, where are you putting your energy?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

And I guess that's a challenge too, is it's not going to go away.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

So you kind of have to figure out where is it worth applying it, you know?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

that's I guess my big lesson to learn is where is it worth

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

applying that level of energy?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:09:02

Yeah.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:09:03

because Libra, yes.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:09:04

It's about relationship.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:09:06

but it's also about, is going to sound very obvious, but equilibrium.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:09:10

it's the scales, right?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:09:12

but, equilibrium comes through your feelings, but it's knowing

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:09:19

when to lean one way or another.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:09:23

So it's actually pretty perfect that it's so close to your nodes because that's

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:09:28

probably part of your growth pattern.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:09:30

And what you're here to learn is I'm imagining being on

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:09:33

one of those balanced boards.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:09:34

And you're just balancing by leaning one way or the other.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:09:38

and so when you find yourself, cause you probably go through phases of being like,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:09:43

like just going into your Aries mode.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:09:46

So finding other ways to tap into that Libra side of you.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:09:52

And it's also right on your descendant because your ascendant and your descendant

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:09:56

are directly opposite each other.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:09:59

And all of that is.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:10:01

How you are reflected through your relationships with other people.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:10:05

So we talk about relationships and you automatically think about the

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:10:08

other person, but if you could almost take it a step further and see how

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:10:12

that either the connection itself or that person is reflecting something

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:10:17

back in you, that you like, that you don't like, that you don't want to

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:10:22

change, that you do want to change.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:10:24

I think that's actually the underlying lesson to figure out how

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:10:30

to step out of that Aries energy.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I just don't want to do any

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

more group projects Lynnette.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

That's your Aquarius moon, my dear.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

you said you didn't know much about your Aquarius moon and I

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

will tell you as someone with a lot of Aquarius in her chart,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:10:49

Oh.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

The adage for Aquarius is

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

loves humanity, hates humans.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

So like there's a detachment there.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

You're like, you are the best over there.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Like you just do your work over there and I'll do my work over here.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Yes, that is true.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

So maybe, okay.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

It's good to know that that's where that's coming from.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:11:10

Well, Aries is also, can be very like me first, right?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:11:14

Yes.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

this on my own.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Like you're knocking down.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I super appreciate that.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Like every, I don't enjoy personal growth, perhaps others do.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I don't enjoy it.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:11:24

It's hard!

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:11:26

but I, when I find that it's happened by

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:11:29

accident, I'm always a better person.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:11:32

I'm always a better person for it.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:11:34

You know what I mean?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:11:34

Like I have friendships that there is no way I would have had I not, but like,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:11:39

those are even, even there I have to acknowledge those are, I feel like the

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:11:42

other person who's caused me to grow.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:11:44

Like not because I have wanted to, you know, it's like, despite

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:11:47

my personality, that I've made those friendships or whatever.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:11:51

And then I'm like, oh, that's good.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:11:54

Look at, look at that.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:11:54

I can do that too.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:11:58

I think that's the axis that we're talking about.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:12:00

Cause you're, comfortable.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:12:02

Aries is, put your oxygen mask on before helping others.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:12:07

Aries is just go take care of business.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:12:10

Be the first one out there, fight your battles.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:12:12

and that may be a little of your Aquarius moon too.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:12:15

We're just speaking from the I here.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:12:18

I don't need any more friends is my adage.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:12:20

but then I'm always happy when they come, but like, to think about

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:12:24

meeting someone new and learning about them and all of that stuff.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:12:28

I'm like, that is a lot of work.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:12:30

But then it's like my cute little

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:12:31

Sagittarius self that's so appreciative of it when it happens.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:12:35

Right.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:12:35

Cause oh yay, let's chat forever.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:12:39

And you're like, I'm going to ask you all the questions and

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:12:41

I want to learn all about you.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:12:43

Yes.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:12:44

okay.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:12:44

Well, that was an interesting deep dive into your sun, moon and rising, but

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:12:50

I'm curious how you got into astrology.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:12:55

And if you have had any aha moments, that have really connected you to it.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:13:00

well, I got into astrology through my friend

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:13:03

Lynette Wennerstrom who the illustrious

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:13:06

You knew about it before me though.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:13:07

well I knew of its its existence.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:13:09

but like I knew that my, I knew my star sign and I knew my,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:13:14

what is the ascendant called?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:13:15

How do you say in English?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:13:16

What is the

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

you can say ascendant.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

or rising sign.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:13:20

Um, so I kinda, I knew what that was and I always

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:13:23

have connected to Sagittarius always.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:13:25

So that like connecting very strongly with it has been great because

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:13:29

then I, so I've always given enough time, I suppose to think about it.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:13:34

the biggest aha though, I think was when you and I did a reading maybe two

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:13:40

years ago and there was that really important sort of like travel something.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:13:47

And it was in the year that I would have been, or with that I indeed was 19.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:13:52

And, that is when I went to Italy for the first time.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:13:54

And that was, and remains like the formative turning point of my life

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:14:00

more than having children more than getting married more than anything else.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:14:04

And so that, for me, it was like, oh my God.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:14:07

So, because that was just uncanny, because it still remains, like I

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:14:10

said, like the most important thing.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Do you remember what that was?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

I don't remember what that was.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:14:16

I don't know that I would know how to express

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:14:18

it, but you were two main, like times in my life, when was at 19.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:14:22

And when was it?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:14:23

37, frankly at 37 I had just like had Kira.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:14:27

So God knows what was going on in my life at that time.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:14:29

I think for me, the ages of 36 to present are a little bit confused for that

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:14:34

reason, but the 19 really blew me away because, and which is a terrible sort of

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:14:40

thing to say now that I say that because 37 was huge too, and I had my third

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:14:44

child, but I'm also like, I don't know what happened in that year, but yeah.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:14:47

So that's what it was like, you were looking at different things and, 19 was

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:14:51

about like taking a large risk or taking a large trip or something like that.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:14:55

And that's basically.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:14:57

In 1997, when I was 19, I went abroad to Italy, which was

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:15:01

my first time living abroad.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:15:02

And in my life, I essentially stayed for the next 15 years in Italy

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:15:06

because being foreign and learning the language was like the best thing ever

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:15:11

Okay.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:15:11

I'm just, I'm trying to find whatever it was

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

on a daily basis though.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

And I, I shouldn't say daily, cause I don't know enough about astrology to

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

know about it on a daily basis, but I think the thing that it provides for

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

me are multiple tiny hahaha moments because it's really validating, you know?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

There are things that are like the times where I have decided I was

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

going to bother you about it, right.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Where I'm like, what is going on in my chart right now because I feel X or I

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

feel this unexplained Y and then there is something in my stars that are happening.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I, that very validating, I don't need the validation to know

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

what's happening at the same time.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

it reminds you that your life is a cycle.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

So it's also going to pass you know, like if you're in a moment where you're

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

like, Hmm, and usually it's not, when things are going like the best, right.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Maybe it's confusing or maybe it's negative, but those are the

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

moments where you're like, okay, this is not where I want to be or

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

this is not like how I usually am.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

So what's going on.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

It's super great to know that that's also like a transitory moment.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I need that, because I think that being reminded that things like

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

that are transitory It gives me perspective, I think, on what

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I'm feeling or experiencing.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:16:19

Yeah.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:16:20

it's just a transit it'll pass.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:16:22

I personally use astrology in the same way more so than

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:16:25

what's coming up in the future.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:16:27

Do I know when a big train that's going to happen or like

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:16:31

the eclipse that's happening?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:16:32

Of course.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:16:33

But I think looking back is more impactful in the moment, because

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:16:39

like you said, it validates how you were feeling or why it took us a half

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:16:43

hour to get set up for this podcast with mercury retrograde or whatever,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:16:47

Yeah.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:16:49

but then it also gives you the information so that

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:16:53

you can, then when you do start expanding your astrological horizons and you're

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:16:58

like, oh, Jupiter's conjuncting with Mars.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:17:02

So how was that last time?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:17:04

And that gives you insights into maybe how you'll feel the next time around.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:17:08

And you start to understand how you relate with the planets and how they

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:17:13

express themselves through you, because.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:17:15

They have infinite expressions.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:17:17

their expression through us is just as unique as we are.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:17:20

So I think that really helps you to almost build a library or like

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:17:24

an internal knowing of how these things are going to affect you.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:17:29

For example, you have a really strong relationship with your

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:17:32

south node and with Aries.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:17:34

So anytime that a planet like right now, we have had, and still

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:17:39

have a lot of planets in Aries.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:17:41

So it's probably lighting that up for you.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:17:43

So anytime as you hear me or any other astrologer being like, oh, they're

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:17:48

four planets in Aries or whatever the case may be that tells you, oh, that's

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:17:53

going to light some stuff up for me.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

that makes me go away.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Everybody I need some space right now.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

You know, that's so interesting for me looking back is always

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

the way that it's useful.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I won't speak for anyone else, but for me, I think using astrology, or even

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

when I pull cards through tarot thinking about my current state in my past state,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

there's it's like looking back on your life with a little bit of humility and

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

saying like, where was I thinking there?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I don't think for me, I can't be forward-looking because in your future,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

you're always, you always build things up.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

exaggerate your imagination so much.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

So if something says that you're being too optimistic right now, then

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

you immediately assume that I have a, this has actually happened at work.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

The other day, one of my colleagues wrote to me and asked if I had my tarot cards

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

nearby because he was having a weird day.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Could I pull him some cards?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

We had a one-to-one later that day.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

So I pulled the three cards and I have them ready.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

For when we're talking and the interpretation was like, so right in

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

the moment, which it was, you know, he had tried to get to the office,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

had not anticipated the traffic was trying to do too many things at once.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

And what the cards message was was about being kind of like overly optimistic.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

So trying to do too much.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Right.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

But I think if you were to see that in the future, you would tie that optimism.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

At least I would to something much bigger,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

like,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:19:19

well you're a sagittarius with stellium in sagittarius

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:19:24

oh my God, I'm being too optimistic.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:19:26

Oh, what's going to happen.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:19:28

Everything's gonna be bad because you know, it's not about trying to do

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:19:32

something in a day for me, it's trying to do, you know, uh, so that's why

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:19:36

future looking is not helpful to me I think, but yes, I get so much meaning

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:19:40

out of it and a lot of validation and perspective from the past.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:19:44

And so, you know, that 19 year old thing very much was like, one that I carry

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:19:48

with me where I'm like, oh my goodness.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:19:50

but otherwise there hasn't been a reading where there hasn't been a

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:19:54

tiny kernel that I'm like, yeah.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:19:55

All right.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:19:56

Okay.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:19:57

Let me think about that a little, you know,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:19:59

So you've found kernels, you have found

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:20:03

it validating of your past experiences.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:20:07

Is there anything about astrology that you are skeptical about or that

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:20:13

makes you say, Hmm, that's weird.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:20:15

I love this question because you know, for full

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:20:19

disclosure to our audience at home, when I read this question in the notes

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:20:23

that you sent me, I thought about this a little bit, and I think, Like, no,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:20:27

there is nothing that is skeptical because I'm not asking of astrology to

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:20:31

again, tell my future or like engage in a pop quiz on what my favorite ice

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:20:37

cream flavor is or anything like that.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:20:39

Right.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:20:40

So like, I feel like I know that I come to astrology with my own mixed

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:20:44

up head, just like I do when I sit down in the morning and I pull three

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:20:47

cards and I may or may not be ready to receive a certain message right now.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:20:52

And I think even that's really helpful for me to know to where I'm like,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:20:56

yeah, I'm not connecting with that.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:20:58

But then again, I know I have my own character.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:21:00

I know that be it astrology or anywhere else, it's like, well, if astrology

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:21:03

is very helpful because you also see where your other planets and things

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:21:07

are, and you're like, okay, maybe I'm struggling a little bit over here

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:21:10

right now, which is keeping me from really internalizing something else.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:21:14

So I never have that.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:21:15

I don't expect it to be something that's this like, perfect.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:21:19

Whatever sooth saying thing.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:21:21

The thing that is, and you know this about me anyway, I like to research things.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:21:25

So the thing that is inaccessible to me about astrology is how complicated it is.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:21:30

Because like I grabbed onto tarot because I was like, oh, yay, pull a card, read

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:21:34

an explanation, think about it a little.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:21:36

I can do that.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:21:37

But astrology is so complex and there's so many layers and there are nodes in,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:21:42

there are planets and there are houses and there are trines and all of the things.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:21:47

And, I took geometry twice in high school once a year at once during the

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:21:52

summer, at which point I passed it.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:21:54

But if I knew about it, that is geometries.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:21:57

I've got my own hangups about geometry.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:22:01

Those are my blockers.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:22:02

I think when it comes to astrology.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

think that's all fair.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Yes.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

I remember during the first reading we did, or even just like casual, I, you

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

just like went silent and I just heard like frantic typing and I was like,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Salim, are you Googling this right now?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Were like, yes, I am.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Yeah, because I'm so visual.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Like I need to see the logic.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Sometimes it's helpful for me to see the logic like spelled out for me,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

but I just can't astrology is the kind of thing you need a guide for.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Or at least for me, I need that.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I can't understand it by myself.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

So being what we were saying before is like, I also have

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

an aversion to group work.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Um, I think, I think that might be something that is difficult

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

for me that it's not something I can get into on my own.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

And I don't want to feel like I'm bothering someone else for as often as I

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

would want to understand, you know, um,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:22:54

All day, every day I'm available for retainer.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:23:01

Well, that's why it's fun that I like you so much.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:23:03

Right.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:23:03

Because then, you know, God, you have to really feel, you have to also like

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:23:07

the way the person is explaining things to you and it has to be accessible

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:23:13

because it is so complicated.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

what a lovely segue, because

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Salim and I are both linguists.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

we both have translated in the past and studied language and love language and

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

all of that, but astrology is a language.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

And I think when we're talking about your first look at your chart and

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

being totally overwhelmed by all the geometry, which PS, I think a lot of

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

astrologers are also not great at math.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

So like that should not dissuade anyone from learning because the

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

computer does all the math for you.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Everyone can do math by the way.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Yes.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:23:50

You know, it's all these symbols and numbers.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:23:54

And I always say pizza pie slices.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:23:56

And like, what is this?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:23:58

Right?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:23:58

you have to have your magic decoder ring to then start to even know like

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:24:05

what Pluto is, because you might be able to identify the sun symbol and

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:24:08

you might be able to identify the moon, but then where do you go from there?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:24:12

And to your point about finding someone who you like, it's

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:24:16

a really big deal because an astrologer is just an interpreter.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:24:20

We just know how to speak the language of the chart and then interpret it into the

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:24:25

language of whomever we're speaking to.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:24:28

And some interpreter is, are better than others.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:24:32

Some interpreters have a style that you prefer.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:24:35

and I think everyone needs to find the astrologer that works

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:24:40

for them or the astrologers.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:24:41

I'm not like a doom and gloom.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:24:44

Forecasting.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:24:45

They're like what?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:24:46

Like that's not my style.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:24:48

So I think the people who are attracted to me are the people

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:24:51

who've like, you know, empowerment and optimism and all of that stuff.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:24:56

But I guess tying that back to the language piece, does that resonate

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:25:01

with you in terms of talking about

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:25:04

Oh, totally.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:25:05

and you can understand why just like a language is a system,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:25:08

how astrology would be a system.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:25:10

No question.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:25:11

Yeah, absolutely.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:25:13

I see that, but all the same, I'd rather go to you, than learn all about it.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:25:18

I don't

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:25:18

well, yeah,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

never say never.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:25:22

well, no, I would rather watch, well,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:25:25

I don't speak German for example.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:25:27

So I would really appreciate subtitles if I'm watching a German TV show.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:25:32

Exactly.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:25:33

You know, that's so funny.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:25:34

I love that, you know, because at work I manage a team of people whose

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:25:37

job it is not to translate words, but to explain cultural significance

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:25:43

and linguistic importance to people who don't know anything about it, I

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:25:48

super get that also with astrology.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:25:50

Right?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:25:50

Cause it's not actually about explaining the thing.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:25:53

When I used to teach English for which I was not qualified.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:25:57

So I didn't have the, I didn't have always the, like why we say this and whatever

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:26:02

grammar, but because I spoke Italian, like that was my qualification to teach

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:26:07

English to Italian speakers was that I understood how they were thinking about

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:26:12

the language that they were learning.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:26:13

Uh, okay.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:26:14

When you say it that way.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:26:16

This is how we say it.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:26:16

So that's how you marry the two thoughts.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:26:19

And I think that's, what is fun about doing an astrology reading with someone

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:26:23

who can not be super technical about like, not shove it down your throat,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:26:26

because it's really, how do I marry your question with what we're seeing

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:26:30

here and it can, and how do I translate those symbols into thoughts or into

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:26:34

potential concerns or like concepts?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:26:37

I love it.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:26:38

And I love the way you do astrology.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:26:40

I don't know.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:26:41

Well, you're my only astrologer also pusher,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

small sample size, but go ahead.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:26:48

but I love the way you do it because you're not

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:26:50

very, you're not black and white at all.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:26:52

Like that's very much your personality too, but I like that because I

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:26:56

think that is where you're not also putting the pressure on astrology

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:27:00

to answer all the questions.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:27:02

Right.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:27:02

And I think that's really important because it's not.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:27:06

Again, it's not a, yes, you need a decorder ring, but it isn't

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:27:09

this like a message in the sand that all of a sudden has appeared.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:27:14

It's people interpreting and put, you obviously have to

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:27:18

put your own into it or not.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:27:20

And if you're again, not ready to put your own into it, then you

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:27:23

probably won't have that moment.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:27:25

Or you won't resonate in that moment.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:27:27

And the fact that that's okay too, keeps you coming back to it.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:27:31

Right.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:27:31

Because it's just sort of, you haven't found what resonates

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:27:34

today that were to be the case.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:27:37

and that's okay.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:27:38

Yeah.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:27:39

and what you said earlier about the tarot cards and being like, okay.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:27:44

This is my message for me today, but maybe I'm not ready for it

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:27:47

Or maybe it's actually a heads up of what's coming down the road.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:27:52

We grow into our charts over our entire lives.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:27:54

So, you know, I've done readings for your girls who are young women and they

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:28:00

have their whole life in front of them.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:28:02

So, you know, especially when I'm talking to somebody at the very

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:28:06

beginning stages of their life, it's like, okay, I don't know.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:28:11

you probably don't know, this is just where you need to maybe keep an

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:28:15

eye out for what may be happening or how you might feel about something.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:28:19

But I think with astrology, sometimes people can feel like it's so prescriptive

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:28:25

and even like mercury retrograde, right?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:28:28

Like you're like the worst, like everything's going to break

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:28:31

and I can't go on a trip and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:28:35

But an astrologer.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:28:35

Isn't really telling you anything like we're just giving you information.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

and it could be right.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Like, I think I remember this about my chart or I invented it because

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

it fits with the narrative that I particularly enjoy, but isn't that

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

don't I have, like, when I like in my natal chart or something, don't I have

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

like a number of planets in retrograde.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Like I feel like I remember you telling me that

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:28:58

Yes.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:28:59

So you have mercury retrograde, you have Chiron retrograde, Jupiter retrograde,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:29:09

Mars, retrograde, and Saturn retrograde.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:29:14

I didn't realize you had this many plannings retrograde.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:29:16

Yeah!

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:29:16

And like that's so Salim, isn't it like the thing that's

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:29:19

inconvenient for everybody I'm like, oh, give me more of that.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

It's not inconvenient though.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Let's not perpetuate the stereotype.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:29:29

but I just, you know, yesterday was Friday the 13th.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:29:31

I was born on the 13th of a month.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:29:33

So while people have that, that superstition, someone asked me

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:29:36

that yesterday and I was like, heck no, I was born on the 13th.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:29:40

That is a good number.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:29:41

Are you kidding?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:29:42

You know, those kinds of things, like

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:29:44

Well, the number 13 is also like one of those

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:29:46

misconstrue things from witches, right?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:29:49

Like I don't know the story behind it, but I'm pretty sure it had to

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:29:51

do with like women that were doing something they weren't supposed to

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:29:54

because like numerologically, if you go back 13 is actually a number of love.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:29:58

So I think the whole

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:30:00

I always thought, so what does it mean about me?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:30:03

Just didn't put the, these five situations are in retrograde in my chart.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:30:08

well, I, I did want to say earlier, cause you were

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:30:11

talking about the astrologer always puts their perspective on it or whatever.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:30:15

my mentor often talks about how we always see everybody's chart

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:30:20

through the eyes of our own.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:30:21

So when I see your moon in Aquarius, I'm like, oh, Aquarius

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:30:26

means this to me because I have so much Aquarius in my chart.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:30:28

So that's what comes out of my mouth.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:30:29

Right.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:30:30

And I know other stuff, obviously that does not pertain to me because

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:30:35

otherwise that would be really weird.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:30:37

But even talking about this, I also have a lot of retrograde planets.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:30:41

So just for context, for anyone who goes to any astrologer, that

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:30:45

is how we see your chart, because that's how we see the world, right?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:30:49

Like we see everything through the lens of our own experiences,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:30:53

et cetera.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:30:54

So as someone who also has, I I've one planet less than you retrograde,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:30:58

really anything That's retrograde.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:31:00

We talk about things slowing down, but really turning inward.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:31:05

So people who have a lot of retrograde planets oftentimes are late bloomers or

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:31:11

take a little while to come out of their shell or to just like figure stuff out.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:31:16

And it depends on, especially which planets are retrograde.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:31:18

Like it may be more like mercury retrograde is more mental.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:31:24

so maybe you keep your thoughts to yourself more or things like that.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:31:28

But what I've heard from my teachers is that people who have

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:31:33

a lot of retrograde planets really pick up steam after 40 in life.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:31:38

which is great because I'm excited to see what's coming up.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:31:43

But I think it's because a retrograde planet and only moves backwards,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:31:47

but it stops and it moves really slowly until it stops again.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:31:51

And then it moves really slowly until it picks up speed moving back forward again.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:31:55

So it's all of these direction changes and moving in reverse that makes someone

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:32:01

who has a lot of those retrograde planets, just be slower for lack of

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:32:06

like do not over-complicate things just means they're a little bit slower and

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:32:10

you're probably more focused on your inner world rather than your outer world.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

That's so interesting.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Cause I feel like, I feel like I am a late bloomer, frankly.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I don't even know in what context, cause I guess.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

One has not bloomed yet.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

You don't know what you're blooming into.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Uh, but at the same time, I'm S I'm such a fast person.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Right.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

And like, oh, that's just so interesting to me.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Like, I don't think I figured out that I was a late bloomer until my

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

late thirties anyway, because it's not like I didn't do things in my life.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Right.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

And I don't think I knew what blooming actually meant until that time, in

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

terms of like confidence in self acceptance and just the different

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

kinds of perspectives that you would have a kind of maturity and things.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

that's something I'd like to learn more about.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I think, especially the specific planets that are in retrograde

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

and what that may be means.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:33:02

Yeah.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:33:03

And the other part of it is that for example, mercury is retrograde right now.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:33:07

I'm not sure when this is going to air.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:33:08

I don't, I think it'll still be retrograde.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:33:11

It doesn't matter.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:33:11

but for people who have natal retrograde planets, the rest

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:33:16

of the world, Stereotypically.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:33:18

It's like, ah, mercury retrograde, you know, they're worried about their computer

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:33:22

crashing or dropping their phone in the toilet or whatever the thing may be.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:33:27

But for people with natal, mercury retrograde, that's the space

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:33:30

they feel most comfortable with.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:33:31

They feel more comfortable when they, we, our energy aligns more when the

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:33:37

world is asking us to slow down.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:33:39

When the world is asking everybody to slow down.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:33:42

When the energy is asking us to tie up loose ends to review the

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:33:48

current situation, all of those retrograde words that start with RE

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:33:52

that's, our that's our comfort zone.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:33:55

Right.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:33:56

and that's a little bit contradictory to all of the Aries energy we were

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:33:59

talking about with you earlier.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:34:01

So that's probably something that you're often going back and forth with.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:34:06

Yeah, I think that I it's a, it's a consideration

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:34:08

I didn't have when I was younger.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:34:09

Cause I wasn't thinking too much about it.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:34:11

And now, you know, especially recently, like, so I changed jobs about four

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:34:16

months ago and not even at that point, did I, was I really right.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:34:21

Well, I'd needed another job.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:34:22

So I was just really happy to have it.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:34:24

and I still am, but I think where I am now, you know, four months.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:34:28

Right.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:34:28

So you kind of settle in is that I'm still re viewing,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:34:32

what I want to do, as a person.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:34:35

And I was talking to my daughter about keeping, like we talked about keeping

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:34:40

your world big so that your world is not just work or your life because that's

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:34:43

when you start feeling really frustrated.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:34:44

And I don't feel like my world is big enough right now.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:34:47

'cause I don't feel like work is where I will be able to put in all

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:34:51

my energies in a satisfactory way.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:34:54

And I don't know what that means, so for me, that whole like blooming

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:35:00

conversation is really about that part.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:35:03

You know, like understanding how to balance or understanding

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:35:07

where the right places are to put your energy, that kind of thing.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:35:10

It's so funny how you think of that?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:35:11

Because like, I think as a kid, you think of being a bloomer

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:35:14

or a late bloomer is in a very specific, I want to do like X thing.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:35:17

Right.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:35:18

Um, which I don't

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:35:20

and I want to do it when everybody else is doing it.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:35:23

or, or before everybody else, if

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:35:25

yeah.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:35:26

But like being after everybody else is the worst.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:35:29

Right?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:35:29

Like

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:35:30

yeah.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

nobody wants that, but some

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

of us that's just how it goes.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:35:36

Well, the thing is now I don't even look at.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:35:40

I don't even look at it in a specific way.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:35:41

Like, that's really, what's been coming to me recently.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:35:43

I don't really super, I'm not super interested in like a

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:35:46

particular achievement or a particular phase of my life.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:35:50

I just know like a certain feeling that I have.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:35:54

Right.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:35:54

And, and that's what I'm not getting from this, the one environment of

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:35:58

work, for example, where I know, okay.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:36:00

Then it needs to be bigger

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Well, let's talk about Like where

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

do you want to put your energy?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Cause I know you wrote in your notes.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Something about it.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

so share a little bit, and then we'll look at your chart.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:36:12

Okay.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:36:12

I don't exactly remember what I wrote in my notes, but I sure it

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:36:15

was along these lines because I'm really just trying to figure out.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:36:18

Oh yes, I do remember what I wrote because it was about purpose.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:36:21

I feel like I came out, I've just come out of a situation where, I feel like

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:36:26

the things that I you think that will give you or what the world tells you will

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:36:29

give you, quote, unquote, purpose in your life are not exactly it at least for me.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:36:36

So like I have a family, I have three great kids and they all

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:36:40

hopefully will find their purpose, but they are not my purpose.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:36:43

Right.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:36:43

Hanging out with them is the most fun thing for me in the world sometimes.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:36:47

And then other times it's the way it is for anybody.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:36:50

But like, it's definitely not my purpose.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:36:52

I have a partner with whom I've been for almost 25 years.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:36:54

Great.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:36:55

He is also great.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:36:56

And sometimes not.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:36:57

And vice versa.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:36:59

That is not my purpose.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:37:00

I have a job that I have been like, you don't have this career that I've

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:37:03

been really fortunate to manipulate in ways that I have wanted to manipulate.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:37:08

Right.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:37:08

When I want to make a move, I've made a move.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:37:10

When I want to grow, I've been able to grow.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:37:12

That's great.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:37:13

But I'm finding that that is not my purpose.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:37:16

Do you know what I mean?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:37:17

And I don't have a name for it, but I definitely wake up or go to sleep thinking

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:37:21

about like this others type of something that I'd like to be putting my hands in,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:37:26

but I don't have a shake for it right now.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:37:28

So that's a huge question mark for me.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:37:32

Okay.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:37:32

So when we're talking about purpose in your chart, there are

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:37:36

two places that I would look at immediately, one we've already talked

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:37:40

about and we'll come back to it.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:37:42

cause I think you have thoughts about it.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:37:44

but it's your north node in Libra in the seventh house of relationships.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:37:48

So again, that's what we're here to learn during this lifetime.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:37:52

So, in big picture terms, it's our life's purpose.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:37:59

Um, but then we also look at the mid-heaven, which is the

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:38:02

highest point of anyone's chart.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:38:05

And it really represents a lot of astrologers.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:38:07

will talk about it as it relates to career, but it's more so your calling in

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:38:12

life, like your purpose, your vocation, and because it's the highest part of your

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:38:16

chart, it's where you're the most visible.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:38:18

So it's like, how do people see you?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:38:22

Like, how does society see you?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:38:24

What's your standing, what's your reputation like?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:38:27

and in some ways, probably a little bit like, what's your legacy going to be?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:38:31

So for you, your mid-heaven is right next to not as close as your

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:38:38

south node in your ascendant, but they're very close to each other.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:38:41

so it's blending energy, that high point in your chart

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:38:44

with your mercury retrograde.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:38:45

that's interesting because that ties into what you're talking about.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:38:50

Where, no matter if it's your career, which you're currently talking about,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:38:55

that mercury retrograde of turning inward and reflecting and having time

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:38:59

to do those things is just completely married with any sort of relationship

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:39:05

to your career or your purpose or your vocation or your calling.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:39:09

So again, you're talking about having a job right now, but even when you find

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:39:16

the thing that you're looking for, it's going to be really important for you to

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:39:20

have that space and time for those kinds of mercury retrograde kind of themes.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:39:26

And then it's so funny, astrology always does this, like you

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:39:30

say words and I'm like, Oh,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:39:31

my gosh, that's exactly what's in your chart.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:39:32

So you were talking about needing to, I don't remember what the words

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:39:37

you said were, but like you're reaching for something like you're.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:39:42

Oh, so that I kind of, I didn't have a form

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:39:44

for it, but it's something like, I certainly want to put my hands.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:39:46

I feel like I wanna put my hands around something, but I

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:39:48

don't know what shape it has.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:39:49

That's maybe that's what you're referring to.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:39:52

I don't know, but let's, let's talk this out.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:39:55

So well, mercury retrograde and your mid-heaven are in, Capricorn and

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:40:01

Capricorn is the sign of achievement.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:40:05

it's the mountain goat.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:40:06

The Capricorn always needs a mountain to climb.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:40:08

Hmm.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:40:10

you aren't one who just wants to like sit there

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:40:14

and, you know, clock in and clock out.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:40:17

Like you need to have an objective.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:40:18

You need to have something that you can

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

That is exactly it right now.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

It, that is totally, I mean, I don't want to stop you because I'm still

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

interested in what you're saying, but this particular comment that is so

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

true of me, it is true of who I am.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I always need something to be striving for.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I do not particularly have that anywhere right now.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

And it is what it, it definitely is something that frustrates me.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

That is why I get myself into terrible situations of

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

like overworking or whatever.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Because as long as there's a goal, I will like walk over glass for it.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Like, I don't mind I will get, I will get there.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

but I don't have that right now.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:40:55

and then will you walk backwards over

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:40:56

the last cause you're Mercury's retrograde and then, okay.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:41:03

Like again, going back to the validation, we have done that, right?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:41:06

So you knew that was a part of who you were before we had this

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:41:10

conversation, but now you know, that That's part of your soul's blueprint.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:41:15

this is not a negotiable for you, so, it makes sense that

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:41:19

you're looking for something.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:41:20

But I think knowing that you have this job that you're getting into and

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:41:25

you like, and all of that stuff, also knowing that you're always going to

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:41:29

need, whether through your employment or somewhere outside of employment, something

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:41:34

that allows you to have that space.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:41:37

So you don't get frustrated, because it's just who you are.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:41:39

Like, you can't change your chart.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:41:41

yeah, it is very validating that it's super

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:41:43

interesting because you know what I think, through the, going back to the

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:41:46

personal growth theme, you know, the idea, I think where I am blooming late

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:41:52

is I think I'm understanding that.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:41:55

Any more, I don't think I'm looking for that through my job, because when I did

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:41:59

have that through my job, it was also very tumultuous and considering my job

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:42:03

is how I support myself and my family.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:42:05

Maybe I don't want that in a job.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:42:07

Also when it's in a job that mountain that you're climbing can be taken away

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:42:11

from you and it's not your mountain.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:42:13

so that's a lesson that I definitely just learned.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:42:16

but I think I do need a mountain.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:42:17

I think that's just so interesting.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:42:18

That's something for me to definitely think about.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:42:20

but it's also, it is really validating to know that like calling it my

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:42:24

soul's blueprint is like so helpful instead of thinking, like, why are

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:42:28

you guys trying to make things so hard for yourself or what, you know,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:42:31

Yeah, it's just, it's, it's your DNA.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:42:33

It's who you are.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:42:34

And, you know, I think also because like we talked about with your ascendant

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:42:39

and your south node, those energies fusing, so concretely you have the

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:42:44

same with your Midheaven and mercury.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:42:46

So thinking about mercurial things, might spark what your calling

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:42:52

is because they are interwoven.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:42:54

So communication equals language equals writing equals technology equals

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:43:02

podcasting equals all of these things, that I know, you know, I mentioned a few

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:43:08

that I know you already have an interest and skill at, but, exploring those is

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:43:15

probably a really good place to start to find out what your personal mountain is.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Yeah, no more rented mountains.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I think that is.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

no more rented mountains.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

That might be the, title for this podcast.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Oh, and then I guess we can come back to your north node in Libra.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

now your north node is in a challenging aspect to your mid-heaven.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

So I actually think that makes sense because we're talking about

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

the relationship and the reflection of yourself through others.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

All of that stuff.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

but the square is an aspect that is challenging to ultimately

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

bring you all of that personal growth that you love so much.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

so that is also a place where it makes sense where you might feel like I

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

want to climb this mountain on my own.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

I want to have my space.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

But then your north node is basically asking you to do group

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

projects in some way, shape or form.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:44:18

Yeah.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:44:19

Yeah.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:44:20

I wonder how would I have to, there are parts of that, that I like, I

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:44:24

mean, I guess that's like anybody

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:44:26

it's just being

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

you like people, you like.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I even like humans.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Not just to me.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I actually think I might like humans more than humanity.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I think I'm not super like convinced our though is, are those little horseshoes?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Are those nodes?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:44:42

Yeah.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:44:42

So the one that looks like a horse shoe or like headphones.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

a fallopian tube.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:44:47

Or fallopian tube is the north node.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:44:50

And then the upside down one is the south node.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:44:53

Oh, gotcha.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

So you're like heading this way.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

And then here you're releasing.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:44:58

Got it.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:44:58

Is anyone's kite ever turned in the other direction?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:45:02

You know how I have this like little kite it's pointing for the north?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:45:05

Yeah.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:45:06

If you had planets over here, it would be facing the other direction.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:45:11

Interesting.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:45:12

Yeah.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:45:13

There's all sorts of geometry.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Does it matter that my little

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

kite is pointing toward Libra?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:45:19

Um, your kite, I think we talked about this before.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:45:22

So a kite is just an aspect.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:45:25

Like it's a combination of all the different connections between the planets

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:45:29

that looks like a kite, literally.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:45:31

and there'll be a picture of Salim's chart in the show notes so you guys can see it.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:45:36

The kite is, It's complicated when the nodes are involved because

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:45:40

the nodes aren't actual planets.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:45:42

So it's, I guess, up for debate as to whether or not it actually

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:45:46

expresses itself in the same way.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:45:49

What I would say is that if you ignore the top part of the kite, you have

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:45:54

this just regular triangle equal lateral, is that back to geometry, all

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:46:02

three sides are the same length, but,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

see on I took geometry twice,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

so trust me, it's equalateral

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:46:07

okay, great.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:46:10

But, anytime you have it's called a grand trine and it means that.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:46:16

Things flow really easily for you in the element that these planets are in.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:46:20

So yours is between Sagittarius, Aries and Leo, which are all fire signs,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:46:27

which I guess just adds more fuel to the fire if you will, with how

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:46:31

easy fire energy comes along to you.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:46:34

Now, the shadow side of a grand trine is that it comes too easily.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:46:38

Right?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:46:39

And so it's great because you're able, you're comfortable

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:46:42

putting yourself out there.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:46:43

You're comfortable taking initiative, but sometimes you might be too fiery.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:46:49

You might start too quickly.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:46:51

Um, so I think that just continues to play into what we're talking about in

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:46:54

terms of your blooming and your stepping away from that fiery warrior side.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:47:01

And just looking to balance that out a little.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:47:03

Interesting.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:47:04

Yeah, I'd forgotten about that.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:47:05

Leo part.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:47:08

I remember that we talked about this in that reading a few years ago, but I had

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:47:10

forgotten that they were all three there.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:47:12

I mean, what are you going to do?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

it's, it's who you are.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

And you can take a very homeopathic approach to your chart.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

I think a lot of times our first instinct is to fix things,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

right.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Um, to be like, oh, I need to balance out my fire with water, which is great.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

a lot of times that's a really good way energetically to find balance, but

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

sometimes, homeopathic remedies work because you give someone a little bit of

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

the thing, that's making them sick and the body, the neutralizes it in that way.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

So if you have a lot of fire in your chart, it's going back to

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

what we talked about the beginning.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Like, how can you.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Maybe light that fire within you to surrender more how can you use

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

that fiery energy to actually help neutralize it in a different way?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

If that makes sense.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:48:04

Who knows.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:48:05

That's an interesting idea.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:48:06

It seems more, that's a really interesting idea.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:48:09

It also kind of seems more natural than like I just don't do very well when

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:48:12

I try and directly contrast things.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:48:16

so that's interesting.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Well, we're not good at it.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

I mean, if we don't know how to do that thing, you can't just be

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

like, I'm going to do that thing to do less of the other thing.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

That's not how it works and you don't have a lot of water in your chart.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

so that almost makes it harder for you.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Your Jupiter's in cancer.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

And that has an opposition to your Capricorn mid-heaven and your mercury.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

And then you have your Uranus in Scorpio.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

So you have some, and you could tap into your Jupiter energy or

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

your Uranus energy to kind of turn your fire into steam if you will.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

but you also don't have to.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

and I think we talked about this with, with your friend, Emily, right?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Like also looking to people in your life who have maybe more water or earth,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

energy, that's a way to balance as well.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

And that ties in to your north node.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Right?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

How do you,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:49:15

Oh yeah.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:49:15

how do you balance that out through relationship?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Oh, my gosh, totally.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

You know, I feel like I feel good about that in my life or the relationships

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

that I've chosen, you know, uh, in terms of the relationships that really

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

ground you or whatever the wording would be between fire and water like that.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Anyway, that balance you it's like those when you go out into the world, though,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

the relationships that you don't choose and, how I actually don't even mind

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

being fiery in the world, but like how it makes you feel like it's also, this

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

is such a weird thing that that is where I would want to, be able to control

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

that a little bit more because I, it doesn't, satisfy me like those aren't

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

those aren't satisfying interactions.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

People who are in your life because you want them to be, you trust them anyway.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

And so the fire comes out.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

It's almost always positive because you've chosen with people.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:50:06

And another point of balance for you is your med

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:50:09

heaven and your mercury retrograde, right.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:50:11

Because that's automatically gonna slow you down.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:50:14

just because of the nature of it.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:50:15

And they're in Capricorn, which is an earth sign.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:50:17

So it's grounding, it's earthy.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:50:22

you can pour the earth on the fire to

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:50:24

I like it.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:50:25

So it's mid-heaven well, when I was writing it, I was like, is

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:50:27

it high heaven no, I have it.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:50:29

Isn't

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Well, it's the, it's the,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

imum coeli is the bottom part.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

And I think this is the medium coeli.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

oh, how very Italian.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:50:41

Yeah.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:50:41

It's Latin.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:50:43

I love it.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:50:44

I should, I should know what that actually is.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:50:47

And maybe not put that part in the podcast.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:50:50

Should we start wrapping up?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:50:52

Sure.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:50:53

Okay.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:50:54

thanks to one Ms.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:50:55

Tonya Sabilia.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:50:56

I have renamed this section of the podcast to not so rapid fire questions,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:51:00

because I could not stop myself from talking during the questions.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:51:04

So

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:51:05

Okay.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

let's get started Salim.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Do you consider yourself to be more of an introvert or an extrovert?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:51:14

extrovert.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

What is your superpower?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:51:18

I think my superpower is the ability to move on.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:51:21

Yeah.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Can you share a little bit more?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:51:25

I think I can feel things really deeply in

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:51:27

the moment, but I'm very optimistic.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:51:29

I there's another, anything that kind of like causes me to keep sinking

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:51:33

downward because I'm so interested about what's going to happen next.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:51:36

And so, because of that, I'm able to like take a moment and usually

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:51:40

just move on, pretty quickly,

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

That is a super power.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

What is your dream travel destination?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:51:51

uh,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:51:54

all of them.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:51:56

I know, I love barring any sort of obligation, human, financial, whatever.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:52:02

That's all I would ever do.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:52:04

I love moving around.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:52:05

I do not mind talking to people at a superficial level and moving on.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:52:13

You just summarize your chart in two sentences.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

so I could not pick a place.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I just love I love traveling to places that are like, yes, spend

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

two months and feel like you live there a while and then move on.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

And I'd love to do that anywhere.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:52:27

Well, that's another piece of your chart

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:52:29

because your sun in Sagittarius is pretty close to your mid-heaven.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:52:33

So that's another, like it's right up there at the highest part of your chart.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:52:37

but Sagittarius is optimism speaking to your answer to

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:52:40

the last question and travel.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:52:43

Yeah.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:52:43

Like international travel, like expanding your horizon.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:52:46

So that's a really big part of your calling in life.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I believe that I feel that

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:52:55

How do you bring ritual into your daily life?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:52:58

well for me, ritual into my daily

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:53:00

life is absolutely impossible.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:53:02

That is not who I am, but regular ritual bi-weekly ritual.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:53:09

I think I do it by, well, the first thing I've ever been able to

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:53:13

enforce for myself, I guess there's even a rapid-fire answers either.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:53:16

That's why it's not So rapid fire questions.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:53:18

You're doing great.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:53:19

Okay.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:53:20

So I'm doing tarot in the mornings was really, has become a thing that I'm

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:53:24

really happy with because I don't, despite all of the things I just said about

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:53:30

group projects, I don't really know.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:53:33

Uh, I I'm all over the place.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:53:34

Like I don't regulate myself very well, but I have learned through

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:53:38

doing, like, taking a moment and spending 10 or 15 minutes and pulling

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:53:42

a card and thinking about whatever question I have all by myself,

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:53:46

that it is actually really helpful.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:53:48

So that is something for me that like has been really, very helpful

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:53:52

and really positive in general.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:53:54

I add ritual to my life or I'm able to keep those kinds of rituals by including

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:53:58

other people in them, you know, Maya and I will do a thing together once a week or

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:54:02

my husband and I will do a thing together.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:54:04

you know, whether it's like biking or whatever, but I, I do

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:54:07

better if in general, if there are other people along the way.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Well, there is your Libra north

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Yeah.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Also very Aquarian of you.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Okay.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Final question.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622:

Speaker:

Where do you shine brightest in your life?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I think I shine brightest.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Um, when I'm doing something that's like connecting with or caring for somebody

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

else, like the things that give me the most satisfaction or conversations with

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

folks about, oh, what do you want to do?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

And oh, can I help you think through that problem or those kinds of things?

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

That's really what I could spend hours doing.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Like I just lose track of whatever.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I don't mind it.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I don't find it depleting.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

It totally energizes me.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

and I to the language part before I also feel really satisfied by it because

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

in a way it is a challenge, right.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

It's my ability to take myself outside of myself and see if I can interpret

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

or listen to the signals correctly.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

So for me, that's, I think it.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:55:12

I love how the last two questions of this totally

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:55:15

brought it back to your Libra north node.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:55:18

And I hope like when you listen back to this, or just think about the

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:55:22

conversation, that those are also really powerful insights for you to find you.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:55:28

Your mountain or your outside of job?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:55:32

thing, because you're so good at those things.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:55:35

That's one of the reasons why I just absolutely loved working with

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:55:38

you and why I'm still so glad that I have you to just be like help.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:55:45

because you're you're just so supportive and you are like the

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:55:49

best brainstormer I've ever met.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:55:52

and I think that ties into your Sagittarius placements and just your

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:55:56

openness and you're like, let's try this.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:55:57

And did you think about that?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:55:59

And like, you don't have, there's no box for you, right?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:56:03

Like, you're just like, oh, look at that weird concept.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:56:07

I just heard about on a podcast, can we apply that to translation or whatever?

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:56:12

that's the beauty of being friends with slim.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:56:15

So

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:56:17

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:56:19

Also part of your soul's blueprint.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

Ah, this is so interesting.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

See, I came in thinking I really didn't like others.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

That's not necessarily it.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622:

Speaker:

I just don't want to climb a rented mountain with other people.

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:56:35

I think that is very valid and an important

lynnette_3_05-14-2022_153622 00:56:39

thing for you to know for yourself.

salima_3_05-14-2022_143622 00:56:40
