What Does “As Above, So Below” Mean?
“As Above, So Below” is an ancient maxim which beautifully illuminates the relationship between our earthly existence and our spiritual existence.
Concurrently with our tangible earthly change is our spiritual evolution. This is a dynamic process. Indeed, the observable results of our spiritual changes manifest daily. Therefore, how the earthly life unfolds is a direct clue to our spiritual evolution . . . and vice versa.
The essence of “As Above, So Below,” “As Within, So Without” is not punitive in nature, there is no room for blame; for the power of “As Above, So Below” lies in understanding the meaning of our lives. The more conscious we become, the more aware we are of our place in the Universe. This knowledge provides us with the optimal foundation to evolve into our full potential. Embracing the choices placed before us in order to reach our full potential is the express goal of Esoteric Astrology.

List of Readings
What is an Esoteric Astrology Reading or Report?
A reading is the method whereby a professional Astrologer translates the astrological glyphs in your chart into something the layperson can understand. Astrology is a language like any other, hence the term “translates.” A reading can give you many insights into the meaning of your own birth chart, also called a horoscope or a Natal Chart. An oral reading can be on the phone, via Skype or face-to-face. Pricing is $1USD/minute so in fact, you can order as long or as short a reading as you like. A written “reading” is a report, some 23 – 28 pages long, single spaced.
How do the Readings and Reports Work?
Through the language of astrological symbols, the trained astrologer can translate the meanings of these symbols and give appropriate advice as to how your personality can be directed in ways compatible with the Master Plan of your Soul. (Please read the “About Esoteric Astrology page) Soul’s Purpose Astrology is NOT a process of memorizing formula or spitting out a computer report. Through training and intuition the astrologer gives back to you what you chose for your LifeLessons before coming here. Because reports are so much more in depth they also include the astrologer’s Higher Self connecting with your Higher Self via dreams and meditations. YOU already know; you are simply seeking assistance in remembering. Reports go much more in depth than an hour-long reading can possibly go. Also, the astrologer gets much deeper into a zone where the information needed can be more easily tapped. The same kind of meditative state is not possible in an hour-long reading. This information is relevant to you pursuing your Soul’s Purpose.
Every symbol and aspect in an astrological chart has more than one meaning, therefore the job of the astrologer is also to intuit the appropriate meaning for each client. This is an ancient science, but it is also much bigger than the personality and therefore, interpretation with a good esoteric astrologer happens on many levels. An aspect is symbolic of a specific packet of energy . Thus, while this IS an exact science, interpretation is neither set in stone, nor fate. Within the parameters of your chart, you still have free choice to manifest everything from the lowest to the highest meanings of every symbol and aspect. As we evolve spiritually, or begin to seek on a spiritual level, the esoteric astrology automatically becomes operable. If you have had past traditional readings, you may actually feel as if you have outgrown your own chart.
What is the Natal or Birth Report?
The Natal chart, also known as the horoscope, is the blueprint or map to that Soul’s Purpose, literally the foundation of everything else, the Starting Point to Discovering Your Soul’s Purpose. It affects your entire life. It is the most important report and the foundation upon which all other readings and reports are constructed. To a trained esoteric astrologer, reading this chart is translating a language of symbology. Esoteric astrology is known as The Language of the Soul AND the Language of the Age of Aquarius. The Soul rarely speaks to us in the English language, more often preferring the use of symbols which the personality can understand. Dreams, meditations and messages through Nature are prime examples of this, but the Natal Chart is the most explicit example.
Since this is usually the first time the astrologer connects with the client, she also will see colors and a mandala which will be part of your report cover. This is the ONLY report which comes with these addendums. As the astrologer works on your report a vision emerges, an impactful impression which is based on your Natal Chart and which, in a “word,” sums up your Soul’s Purpose. This vision is then translated onto the Report Cover as your personal mandala. The astrologer learned from a professional fine artist, Brenda Heim, the importance and meaning of an Enso and chose that form as the basis of every report.
Every mandala begins with the colors seen for you. These are incorporated into the Enso* which is the foundation of every mandala. No two report covers are the same. Everything about the art image including the strength or gentleness of the Enso, the colors and how they are layered, the specific rotation of the Enso, the illustration inside the Enso and whether or not the image is contained within the circle or extends beyond – is all part of the Master Vision.
Some people connect with their mandala so deeply that they want it made into an actual piece of artwork. Should you desire turning your mandala into an original piece of wall art, Heim Art stands ready to make that happen. Contact SkyDance Astrology for more information.
Why do I need my birth Date, Place and exact birth Time?
The Time is much more critical for esoteric astrology than for orthodox astrology. Soul’s Purpose Astrology is based firstly on your Rising Sign, not your Sun Sign and this is determined by the time of birth. We also value the houses which every aspect lands in as very important and this too is based on time. Accuracy is imperative. If you are unsure of time, please do the research first. Time of birth is usually available from your birth certificate, birth hospital and/or county; sometimes from family or baby books. Online organizations can also assist in finding this information. If none of this is successful, you can be muscle tested to determine the correct time.
Held by phone, Skype or face-to-face, oral readings allow for real-time questions and answers. By interacting with the astrologer you will learn about the gifts and the challenges you chose, and how to optimally navigate your Path. Recording is both allowed and encouraged. Most Smart Phones have the ability to record the session. These readings give you the opportunity to go into any direction you choose.
A Progressed Report
A Progressed Chart will give you an up-to-date picture of how the movement of the planets is currently affecting you with new patterns, blessings and challenges. It details the temporary energy you are meant to learn about and use now. It can also explain current dynamics and patterns so that you can plan for what is coming. It is renewable every time the Progressing Moon changes Signs or Houses. A new report is generally due anywhere from 1 – 2.5 years apart. Regular clients would not dream of conducting their lives without knowing what new energy is impacting them, NOW!
A Compatibility Report
A Compatibility Report compares the charts – Natal, Progressed, Transits as required – between 2 or more people in order to determine potential challenges and blessings within their relationships. This can include Romantic relationships, Parent-Child, Employer-Employee, or any 2 people. These reports do not attempt to say whether this relationship is good, bad or should not be undertaken. Rather they explain why the attraction (if it is a voluntary relationship) and what it is you can learn and how you can best evolve through this relationship.
Answer to a Specific Question Report
When faced with an emergency, haunting question, or Life issue that you have been unable to resolve, or to gain guidance in pursuing a specific goal, the Specific Question Report provides an in-depth pursuit of that specific issue or related issues. Pricing will vary depending upon the complexity of the question.
Birth of Anything New Report
A Natal Report or “Birth Report” can be done on anything: a new business launching, a pet, a relationship or a new idea.
The Death Report can help explain to survivors the meaning of the Completion of a Life.
In esoteric astrology, transits are far less important than they seem to be in traditional astrology. Progressed reports give us much more information about current energies and patterns in our lives. But sometimes we simply want to pick a day for something special or know the exact location of our most important planet on specific days. This is when transits make sense. Transits help you pick out specific days for special events coming up in your life such as a wedding, signing of a contract, buying a new house, etc. This is the same method farmers have used for centuries in order to plant their crops and businessmen have used to sign contracts. Price varies depending on whether you want to explore a narrow range of time vs. wide open.
We were all born with a specific Ray complement just as we were born with an astrological birth chart. This complement completes another piece of the puzzle of who you are. Of the 7 Rays possible you have 5 rays ruling your 5 bodies: Soul and Personality which is made up of: Mental Body, Astral/Emotional body and Etheric-Physical body. Determining which of the 7 rays make up your complement involves a series of detailed questions to determine something of who you are. Dr. Douglas Baker of Claregate College created this form of analysis. We are four esoteric psychologists and astrologers from Dr. Baker’s Claregate College who are offering their skills and knowledge to conduct your ray analysis as a team.
