~ It is important not to ignore your shadow side, but look it straight in the eye.


However you get used to it, stress is something we have all experienced. Where does this stress come from? Your dominant planet (zodiac sign) says a lot about your personality and behavior.

It also tells you which themes are more difficult, which patterns often repeat themselves. This is something that is within you, it is up to you to allow it or to do something about it.

Do you awaken the shadow side or the light side. It is important not to ignore your shadow side. But look it straight in the eye. This is the only way to awaken your light side, your inner angel.

What’s your shadow side? You can find out by looking at which patterns keep repeating themselves, then work on them.

Another way to find out your shadow side is by looking at astrology. It is important to know that only your ‘normal’ zodiac sign, which everyone knows, often does not say everything or even says very little.

Your normal zodiac sign is the constellation the sun was in when you were born. But the moon, mars, venus mercury and so on all have their own zodiac sign, each of which gives a different added value.

For example, my zodiac sign is Aries, but Capricorn is the most common. For me, the Empress will, like Aries, therefore also match to themes in my life.

Astrology, like mythology, is a way to better understand the universe. They are human concepts that make universal concepts easier to understand. Ultimately, it is a way to better understand energy by the brain.

The study of yourself is like the study of the universe. It starts and ends nowhere, you will always keep growing and awakening divine knowledge from within.

In this blog post you will learn a little more. I hope it helps you see things you didn’t see before.

Remember that stress is very normal and everyone experiences it from time to time. Be kind to yourself and don’t judge.
