In the Mood for doing Astrology Sessions!

I’m in the mood for doing Astrology Sessions. Why?

In western culture it has been historically assumed that if one has a genuine existential crisis, where one’s ego blows out at 300 kilometres an hour on the open road, the only real options are to self-destruct – usually via madness or suicide (slow or fast) – or to deny ones feelings in the form of orthodox belief. In the east there has always been a third option. It has been part of the culture for thousands of years – and that option is to dance on the table. The lie is gone and now the truth can come. Yahoo! 

Our egos are bound to fail. They are false. All that we have learned to be, simply must fail – in love, creativity and in coming to terms with death. It has to fail because it’s got no realness in it whatsoever. It is simply impossible to love, create or know, with an identity that has been built to serve society. And our egos can be spectacularly sophisticated. In fact it takes a fantastically sophisticated ego to come fully unstuck. What greater hubris is there than to think that one can love, that one can create – and that one is immortal? This failure is inevitable. It is why depression is the greatest disease of modern man – and it need not be the end of the story. 

Imagine if one could keep one’s crap detector alive as one’s ego failed, not slip into the addictive haze of belief, not dull ones senses with substances or processes, resist the urge to go nuts – and instead stare into the abyss with eyes open? Those who have done so have invariably found that this conscious death of the ego is a doorway into bliss – and, paradoxically – fullness. 

This is why I am in the mood to give sessions. The greatest gift I have been given in this life is a sniff of this bliss – which comes as the ego burns up in the flames of its own falsity. And now I am possessed by the notion that this experience needs to be shared. What to do? 

The culture needs it. We all need it – in love, work and in living.

So, now, let me describe the things I do, in this context. 

I’m in the mood for doing some astrology sessions. What?  and   How?  

I offer Astrology Sessions both face to face and via MP3 anywhere else around the globe. 

Astrology has become my tool for story-telling the transformational journey. Astrology is a perfect medium to do the job. It is after all a repository of stories that has roots that go back to antiquity. It is a rich living web of metaphor that is flexible enough to grow, to be re-visioned. 

I discovered at some point, largely by coming across the work of Milton Erikson, that story-telling is potentially deeply healing. An Astrology Reading is a perfect vehicle for shifting inner perspectives around to make way for a rebirth in that lovely pregnant moment when our ego comes unstuck. Planting the seed of story is a powerful means. In those moments of darkness, annihilation, deep feeling, that we all have, usually provoked by our relationships, work, encounters with authority, or brushes with mortality, a story can be the thread that keeps it real – that keeps it open – that prevents us from going down.   

Experiential Astrology Sessions are a way of doing the same thing but in a more interactive and energetic way, using psychodrama, gestalt, voice dialogue body awareness and more to take it all a step deeper. 

If you like this intent, connect with me. Get on the blower or on the net and book yourself in. I charge $70 AUS for a reading – wherever you are in the world – or $60 if you are in Brisbane or nearby and can come and see me. If you are in Australia you can pay by cash or direct deposit. If you are anywhere else, I do Paypal.    

Putting it into the culture  

I also send out Daily Astrological Weather Reports via Twitter (@SudhirAstrology) and Facebook (Sudhir Daily Astro), write columns for newspapers and websites (www.osho.com) and when I get the chance I play music. My book “Astrology; For Those Who Won’t Admit They’re Interested” is out and available around Australia, and on the web at www.boolarongpress.com.au It’s a great Christmas pressie option. Give one. 

Much love and fun
