Money is one of the most important aspects of our lives, and yet many people struggle with it. Some people seem to attract money easily, while others face constant financial challenges. What if the reason behind this is not just luck, but also astrology?
Astrology is the study of how the movements and positions of celestial bodies influence human affairs and personality traits. It can reveal a lot about our strengths, weaknesses, challenges, and opportunities in various areas of life, including money.
One of the ways astrology can help us understand our relationship with money is by looking at our natal chart, which is a snapshot of the sky at the moment of our birth. Our natal chart shows the placement of the planets, signs, houses, and aspects that shape our personality and destiny.
Among these factors, there are some that are especially relevant for money matters. These are:
The 2nd house
This is the house of money, possessions, values, and self-worth. It shows how we earn, spend, save, and invest our money, as well as how we value ourselves and what we own.
The sign of Taurus
The sign of Taurus is the sign that rules the 2nd house and is associated with money, resources, stability, security, and pleasure. It shows our attitude towards money, our financial habits, and our potential for wealth.
The planets Venus and Ceres
These are the planets that rule Taurus and the 2nd house respectively. They show our style of attracting and managing money, as well as our needs and desires for abundance and comfort.
The Lunar Nodes
The Lunar Nodes are the points where the Moon’s orbit crosses the ecliptic (the apparent path of the Sun). They show our karmic path in life, our past lives, and our soul’s purpose. They are composed of the North Node (our direction of growth) and the South Node (our comfort zone).
The planet Neptune
Neptune is the planet of spirituality, dreams, illusions, creativity, and compassion. It shows our connection to the divine, our intuition, and our imagination.
When any of these factors are prominent or challenged in our natal chart, they can indicate spiritual money blocks. Spiritual money blocks are obstacles or limitations that prevent us from achieving financial success and fulfillment. They are often rooted in subconscious beliefs or patterns that stem from our past lives, karma, or soul lessons.
Some examples of spiritual money blocks are:
Having a South Node in Taurus or the 2nd house
This can indicate that we have been too attached to money or material possessions in our past lives, or that we have misused or abused our wealth or power. As a result, we may have developed a fear of losing what we have, a scarcity mindset, or a resistance to change. Our soul lesson is to learn to detach from money and possessions, to embrace change and innovation, and to share our resources with others.
Having a North Node in Taurus or the 2nd house
This can indicate that we have been too detached from money or material possessions in our past lives, or that we have neglected or sacrificed our needs or desires for others. As a result, we may have developed a lack of self-worth, a poverty mindset, or a difficulty to receive or enjoy money. Our soul lesson is to learn to value ourselves and what we have, to attract and manage money with ease and grace, and to indulge in pleasure and comfort.
Having Neptune in Taurus or the 2nd house
This can indicate that we have a spiritual or creative gift that we need to express or share with the world. However, we may also have unrealistic expectations or illusions about money or possessions. We may idealize or romanticize wealth or poverty, or confuse spirituality with materialism. We may also be prone to escapism, addiction, or deception involving money. Our soul lesson is to learn to balance spirituality and materiality, to use our imagination and intuition for positive manifestation, and to be honest and compassionate with ourselves and others regarding money.
How can we overcome spiritual money blocks?
The first step to overcome spiritual money blocks is to become aware of them. We can do this by studying our natal chart, by reflecting on our personal history, and by noticing any recurring patterns or themes in our financial situation.
The second step is to heal them. We can do this by releasing any negative emotions, beliefs, or memories that are associated with them, by forgiving ourselves and others for any mistakes or wrongdoings, and by affirming positive statements that support our financial goals.
The third step is to transform them. We can do this by aligning ourselves with our soul’s purpose, by following our passion and creativity, and by taking inspired action towards achieving financial success and fulfillment.
By doing these steps, we can clear any spiritual money blocks that may be holding us back from attracting and enjoying abundance in all forms. We can also discover and express our true value and potential in the world.
