Nature v Nurture in Astrology – Post 2

Michael Conneely
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

‘Nature versus Nurture’ Astrology Readings and Courses – Post 1

 
Michael Conneely
In psychodynamic western astrology it’s totally illuminating to look at the issue of ‘Nature versus Nurture’ in your life.
This is the first of two Posts on this subject.
In all my Astrology Readings, I combine Western Astrology (both psychodynamic and Evolutionary western astrology) with Vedic Astrology. The result is a uniquely thorough and totally exceptional window into your life and future.
And, moreover  I’ve got a June 2016 special discount offer as well on my readings, see: http://www.starwheelastrology.com/buy.html
So: what is the astrology of your Nature v. Nurture?
Planets in signs are our inherited Nature.
Planets in houses are our Nurture or the effect of our upbringing – most especially our earliest upbringing.
In other words, this is the ‘Nature versus Nurture’ debate. The Question is: ‘Who are we?’: are we our Nature or are we our Nurture?
Of course we are both: we are a mixture, and it is great psychological illumination to be able to consider the statement psychodynamic astrology offers on this question:
What parts of us are our Nature? what parts of us are the effect of our Nurture?
What was pretty well wiped out from our Nature by our Nurture? Can we retrieve it?
What was positively added by our Nurture? can we optimize it to overcome difficult inheritance?
And of course we can – and indeed we must go on from psychological insight to transformation and healing using that insight.
Note that all my Astrology Readings and Courses are attuned to the need to avoid from sticking at legalistic even disempowering astrological declaration. They have the over-riding imperative to go on to use the astrological declaration to in fact to achieve needed healing and empowerment: to use the astrological insight to achieve the special reason we incarnated to become this life time.
Here’s how the system of Nature versus Nurture works in western psychodynamic astrology:
Here’s a Case Example: a sample western astrology birth chart using Astrocalc: a man’s birth chart:

 
Here’s the same man: his western astrology birth chart using Megastar:

 
So, now, working from the birth chart, here is the man’s  ‘Nature v. Nurture’ statement in psychodynamic western astrology, called a ‘Dynamic Counting Table’:
