Wisdom of the heavens lighting the way.
Welcome to the website home of astrologer, Samantha DiRosa. I approach astrological work from an evolutionary standpoint, focusing particularly on the evolutionary process of the soul. This approach assumes that we are “older” than our present years on this earth. It involves decoding the birth chart to examine the soul’s intention in this lifetime, paying attention to particular life issues, lessons, challenges, etc–– in other words, looking at one’s karma and dharma.
Astrology, when appropriately practiced, is not predictive fortune telling. One overarching principle of evolutionary astrology is that we all possess free will and are responsible for the realities we experience. A reading involves interpreting the energy of your chart, and exploring what you chose, as a soul, to work on in this incarnation.
The natal chart is akin to a complex map. In a reading, symbols are unveiled in order to communicate inner dynamics that are often not entirely conscious. A reading can also contextualize issues that you may be aware of, but perhaps have trouble articulating. I also envelop archetypal and psychoanalytic perspectives into astrological analysis, which means looking to the gods and goddesses in myth and folklore for guidance in revealing the motivations behind our choices, habits, patterns, and conflicts. This humanistic approach personifies the planets, helping to put us in an empowered relationship with the forces at play, rather than at the mercy of them.
Astrology can be an enlightening guide, providing encouragement, clarity, and validation on your path in this lifetime.
Two questions that are often raised in a session include “is that good?” or “is that bad?” While some signs in popular astrology get a negative rap, polarizations as such are not intrinsic to the language of evolutionary astrology. Just as there are no good or bad signs, there are no good or bad charts.
