StoryTime: Divine Timing
Earlier this year, my family made the huge leap of moving across the country. We left our old home, sold our belongings, and made a cross-country move to New Hampshire, chasing our dreams. Amidst all the chaos and countless tasks that come with moving, one of the most important items on our to-do list was to update and renew various logistical aspects of our lives - driver's licenses, vehicle registrations, school enrollments, and even the transition of my business. You know, the fun stuff…
I had to navigate the inconvenient world of online government portals (why are gov. portals always so difficult?!) to dissolve my Colorado LLC and refile it in New Hampshire. If you've ever dealt with these websites, you know how tedious and convoluted the process can be. I truly don’t wish it on my worst enemy.
As I filled out the online forms, I didn't realize the significance of the date I chose.
Little did I know, I had clicked submit exactly at 11:11. talk about divine timing.
The Magic of Astrology
Astrology never fails to surprise me because it has such a beautiful way of intertwining the mystical with the mundane. When I glanced at the timestamp on the paperwork and saw it was 11:11, I realized the pure magic that I just had experienced (or created!). I had unknowingly chosen 11:11 as the effective date for my business transition. When I noticed the synchronicity, the astrologer in me was shouting, “Chart! Chart! Chart!”
The Birth of "That Witch Next Door"
So, naturally, I had to look at the birth chart of my business baby. Before diving into the analysis of the transit chart, let me first share the natal chart of "That Witch Next Door." Its birthdate is March 8, 2019, at 11:14 AM, with a Pisces Sun, Aries Moon, and Gemini Rising. It just makes so much sense… Some key factors in this chart include a Pisces mid-heaven, a Sagittarius descendant with Jupiter conjunct (ummm, chef’s kiss!), and the presence of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn during its inception.
In Case You Don't Know
Birth Chart: A birth chart - also referred to as a "natal chart" - is a map showing the positions of the planets at the time of someone's birth (or in this case, my business).
Transit Chart: A method of interpreting the ongoing movement of the planets as they transit the horoscope in real-time. We can look at a transit chart for a particular moment on its own, or overlaid on top of a birth chart.
The 11:11 Transit Chart Analysis
Now, let's explore the transit chart for the day I decided to renew my LLC, August 24, 2023, at 11:11 AM. The alignment of celestial bodies during this moment offered some incredible insights.
Virgo Season: The timing was perfection, as I filed for my LLC right at the beginning of Virgo season. This Earth sign energy aligned perfectly with the meticulous process of updating my business details.
Mercury Retrograde in Virgo: Mercury, the ruler of Virgo, was retrograde at 21 degrees of Virgo during the filing. Despite the common advice to avoid starting new projects during Mercury retrograde, this alignment actually brought comfort. It reminded me to be patient and thorough in my dealings, reflecting Mercury's nature.
Saturn in Pisces: Saturn was sitting near my business's mid-heaven in Pisces, offering lessons in boundaries, intuition, and trust. The presence of Saturn assured me that any mistakes could be corrected, and I should embrace my evolving business journey.
Venus and Black Moon Lilith Opposition: Venus was retrograde in Leo at 14 degrees, while Black Moon Lilith was at 25 degrees of Leo, forming a strong opposition. This highlighted the transformation and evolution in what my business values and attracts. It emphasized the importance of embracing change, even when it leads in unexpected directions.
This experience with the 11:11 transit chart of "That Witch Next Door" highlights the magickal power of business astrology. By examining the alignment of celestial bodies during significant business events, you can truly gain so so so many invaluable insights into your journey. Whether you're an entrepreneur or simply looking to understand your career path better, business astrology offers a fresh perspective.
It’s Your Turn!
Now it's time to examine the cosmic blueprint of your own business! Here's how you can do it:
1. Start with the Birth Date
Just like with a person's birth chart, you'll need a date, time, and location for your business's birth. This could be the day you officially launched your venture or a crucial turning point. Take note of these details because they are your cosmic coordinates.
2. Business Natal Chart
Create a natal chart for your business using the birth details. This chart represents the unique personality and potential of your business, much like your own natal chart does for you. You'll discover the signs, planets, and aspects that shape your business's energy.
3. Your Personal Natal Chart:
Now, pull up your own natal chart. Yes, yours. Why? Because your business is an extension of you. Just as planets influence your life, they influence your business. Your natal chart will reveal the qualities you bring to the table, your strengths, and even your challenges.
4. Compare and Contrast
Here's where the magick happens (imo). Compare the two charts—the one for your business and your personal natal chart. Look for alignments, aspects, and connections. This is like looking at the family resemblance between you and your business.
5. Examine Planetary Aspects
Planetary aspects, such as conjunctions, oppositions, and trines, reveal how different energies in your business chart interact. For example, a conjunction between Venus and Jupiter might signify good fortune and abundance in your business endeavors.
6. Consider Retrogrades
Just as retrograde planets in personal birth charts indicate a need for introspection and revisiting certain areas of life, retrogrades in your business chart can signal areas that require review and adjustment. Don't fear retrogrades; they offer opportunities for growth and refinement.
7. Analyze Transits and Progressions
Keep an eye on the current transits (planetary movements) and progressions (evolution of your business over time) affecting your business chart. These can provide guidance on the best timing for decisions, launches, and changes within your business.
8. Embrace the Intuitive Element
Astrology is both an art and a science. While there are established principles, intuition plays a vital role in interpreting birth charts. Trust your instincts and the messages the cosmos is sending you.
9. Reflect on the Past
Don't forget to look back at the history of your business. How have past transits and progressions influenced your business's journey? Reflecting on the past can help you make informed decisions for the future.
10. Trust Your Challenges
Remember, astrology isn't about avoiding challenges; it's about understanding and working with them. As I mentioned earlier, just like in life, you'll see the challenges in your business chart, and it might make you think, "This makes so much sense." Embrace these challenges; they are part of your cosmic curriculum.
11. Gain a Trusted Perspective
The beauty of astrology is in its ability to provide a trusted perspective. When you step back and view your business journey through the lens of astrology, it's like having a cosmic mentor guiding you through the ups and downs.
