When I was young, I remember those older than me consistently talking down to us, or using “baby-talk”. Anyone with children born in the last few years knows that this is impossible now. The children born today are smarter, wiser, more perceptive, and usually more spiritually adept and open than their parents. Now parents must evolve to adapt to their children.
We are all miracles, heroes of a cosmic journey, thru the sheer act of traveling thru the dimensions, entering the womb, and exiting into this mad circus we call life.
But once we join the circus of life, what do we do? “I just want to know what I’m supposed to do in this life and i’ll do it. What’s the design? What’s the divine plan?” Who hasn’t asked these questions? And in order to support the full blossoming of their child’s potential, what parent hasn’t asked for the How-To Instruction Manual for their young child, what teacher hasn’t asked for a guidebook to their students?
Well, we do have a manual. We have been blessed with a blueprint—the unique and precious symbolic code of the birth chart. The birth moment in space and time is a clear intention chosen very specifically by the incoming soul. The heavenly poetry of our birth—the positions of the planets at that moment—reflect the core desires, primary energetic patterns, and evolutionary needs of the child. All of us painted a soul collage in the heavens before incarnating. Every child has gifted us a script for their roles in this world. Now, parents and teachers must memorize that script and help a child remember its language. In this way, the birth chart is a map to the treasure of your child’s soul.
Both Astrology and Human Design use the child’s birth date/time/place to paint the portrait of a child’s soul with its particular pathways in this life, while also reflecting the karmas it brings in from other incarnations. While astrology has been applied in every culture around the world for thousands of years to determine destiny, vocation, relationship intent, and every other major aspect of life, Human Design is a relatively new, emerging system of self-awareness, respected and used worldwide. It synthesizes Astrology, the Chinese oracular IChing, the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, and the Indian Chakra system. Essentially, one’s Human Design graph reflects the energetic patterns within the DNA itself, and gives very specific strategies for living a fulfilled, passionate, and purposeful life.
The Importance of Children’s Astrology: A Personal Portrait
Although I am not a parent, I would like to share a brief personal story which describes why I feel so passionate about the subject of conscious parenting.
Since my late teens, I have felt at my core that I am a composer, a creator of beautiful sonic textures. In my birth chart, I have a strong combination of planets, including my life force, the Sun, and the planet of learning Mercury, in the signs of Taurus, Leo, and Pisces. Now each of these signs relates to the archetype of the musician in different ways. Taurus is the natural appreciator of beauty, the dancer, the msuician and the sensualist. Leo is the creative artist and performer. Pisces is the gifted artist —an open channel for the imagination to dream itself through.
But in my upbringing, this combination of Taurus, Leo, and Pisces was not acknowledged in me. Not until I was nearly 17 did I decide to begin playing guitar, almost from a place of urgency—if I did not start then, I thought, I may never begin.
I have composed my own songs on guitar since I began playing. Now I also compose using a midi keyboard and software with instruments from around the world. But I am only feeble in my attempts to play the piano. I always wonder where my musical gifts would be if I had been able to develop my solar vitality (Sun position) and my natural learning style (Mercury) in the sign of the musician, Taurus in the intuitive Pisces 12th house. I do not blame my parents for not exposing me to nature, music, dance —these realms were not in their own perception—but I acknowledge that my intrinsic gifts have been delayed and may not manifest at their greatest potential in this lifetime. Although this saddens me, it has motivated me to help parents and teachers utilize the precious tool of the astrological birth chart in supporting. their childrens’ natural talents.
If we want our earth to evolve, we must start with our children. And in order for our children to maximize their gifts, those who choose to become parents and teachers must be willing to deepen their understanding of the archetypal forces of life, and be able to apply this wisdom with the children in their lives.
The response-ability of a parent is to be able to respond to the script, written by the soul of the child. The karmic contract between the two souls of parent and child is acknowledged in the acceptance to bring the child into the world, to engage the role of parent. Like an actor performing his or her role, the parent can support the lead actor, the child, who is the protagonist in the magical theater of life.
Some Areas of Concern and Consideration as a Conscious Parent
The Moon and Mercury
Because of its urge for emotional nurturance, no planetary position will be so easily recognized and activated as a child’s moon sign. Children are more influenced by their feelings than any kind of rational process. Therefore, to understand the primal needs of their moon sign will give you a valuable tool in working with the inner life, the reactive nature, and the sense of mood, and the feelings of security or threat to your child.
Once we integrate the moon position with the child’s Mercury position, we now begin to understand how a child will learn the best, for there are many different fluencies by which a child can perceive the world, receive information, and contribute back their own original though.
The core elements of the Moon and Mercury configurations will help a parent or teacher support the conditions and environments which bring a feeling of security to the child.
Synastry Charts and Soul-Contracts
There are a number of dynamic relationships in each family. Even if there are only two children and two parents, we can see that each person will have three different relationships they are navigating within the context of a four person family. It is often obvious which parent a child flows with more and which parent the child experiences more problems. Given this, one of the best tools parents can utilize is the understanding of synastry between themselves and their children. Synastry means to join the stars and a synastry reading between parents and children, and children and their siblings will reveal all of the major relationship dynamics between the family member.
Life Cycles and Your Child’s Rites of Passage
We are all continuously being initiated by the psychological forces of the planets. There is a trajectory of initiation that each life will experience determined by one’s age. Honoring these initiation cycles was an intuitive and natural process for our ancestors. Indigenous people around the world still practice these rites of passage, but industrialized peoples in the first world have lost much of their connection to natural cycles. A return to harmonizing with nature’s rhythms can be accomplished by aligning sacred ceremonies for our youth through the planetary cycles, as certain psychological forces begin to awaken in these children.

Life Cycles and Your Child’s Rites of Passage. We discuss what major initiatory cycles your child has just been through, is in currently, and will be encountering during the years ahead. What tools can be used to help the child integrate the major life lessons of these initiations and develop into mature, responsible, and happy adults.
6 month minimum, 90 minute sessions, one session per month.

*In order to accurately cover all material, working with multiple children may require longer sessions or additional sessions to the 6 months. Also, after 6 months, we may wish to add additional months to venture more deeply.
Every additional month would be $200 per month, paid at the beginning of the month.
**Readings will be done through Skype with one or both parents. I will send charts and MP3 Recordings after each session.
***As this program requires a serious investment of time, energy, and money for the empowerment and evolution of the family, the exploratory first session will also be used to decipher whether this coaching program will suit the needs of the family.
I am very committed to nourishing the next generation with as many tools of self-awareness as possible. Spirit has revealed to me that this a fundamental part of my mission here as teacher and healer. I hope that we can work together for the transformation of the next generation and the evolution of our beautiful earth.
