Who are we: our Nature or our Nurture?
My astrology readings and astrology courses always include focus on this dimension in the understanding of ourself: Nature v Nurture.
You can get in touch with me for an Astrology Reading which will include this topic, or to enrol on one of my astrology Courses. And at the time of writing there’s even a June 2016 discount offer on my Astrology Readings!
In the first post on this subject of ‘Nature v Nurture’, I showed how western psychodynamic astrology has developed a method for demonstrating to us what is our Nature, and also for demonstrating what is the effect of our Nurture. See how Nurture alters Nature. It’s a good idea to read that post first.
In this second post, I develop the theme further to demonstrate how we can actually erect a chart of our Nurture – and our Nurture can, of course, so often be so different from our Nature.
Nature tends to be inherited characteristics. Nurture is typically the effect on us of our earliest upbringing.
Nature v Nurture astrology clearly demonstrates to us answers to questions such as:
What are the forces that drive us?
What are the routes to us developing understanding ourself?
What are the gateways to our healing and empowerment?
And my work is exceptional in that it always combines western astrology with Vedic Astrology.
Sometimes the effect of our Nurture actually produces quite a different person from the Nature we were born with.
Sometimes, this can actually be to better equip us for our life.
But more usually, the skewing effect of our Nurture actually puts us out of touch with qualities that we would have benefited from greatly that are within our inherited Nature – qualities that have been overlaid or submerged by our upbringing.
And so a whole life script needs to be developed to overcome the challenge of lost Nature, of often unwanted effects of Nurture.
This is a challenge of understanding; it is a challenge of transformation. It is a challenge to become the person we were born to be.
In fact, in psychodynamic western astrology, a specialised birth chart can be erected to show
