Today’s gift is an Astro Reading + Natal Body Art Map.
My name is: Rose Theodora.
I’m known for being: An astrologer who pioneered the first-ever Colorastrology studio. I am known for curating unique experiences (using sight, smell, taste and sound) that allow people to deepen their connection to the changing astrological landscape overhead.
I'm sharing: A 30-min. mini-astro reading (only offered for Live the Process) + Natal Body Map Art. (value $425). Designed in collaboration with artist Cara-Rara, each artwork is a one-of-a-kind, high-quality digital (4” x 6”) print with an authenticity certificate and short explanation—specifically created for you, as a representation of your natal chart.
You can find it at: Only on my website.
What inspired me to begin creating these was: Natal charts—a representation of the sky above when you came into this world—can be confusing and overly mathematical. What people often forget about astrology is that your natal chart is actually you. Each planet correlates to a particular part of the body and organ. I go deep with my clients; they want to know how to alchemize their planetary aspects to feel more whole and in alignment. So, I created this physical representation of the natal chart as a body map, including colors and elements that specifically relate to the individual.
What makes it special is: It’s a way to utilize planetary alchemy to physically see how your natal placements live in your body—to feel empowered and inspired. Using classical imagery and symbolism such as metals, colors, geometric figures, planetary glyphs and elements (i.e. water, air, earth, fire, and ether), you’ll be able to better understand the relationship of astrology to your body and actually use it daily as the planets pertain to you. Looking at your Natal Body Map is a passive way to meditate on wholeness, seeing the colors and elements that make up you and reminding you of who you are.
One thing you can’t miss is: Is that each day’s astrological climate (or “transiting planets”) also have an effect on your body. This year, Jupiter—the planet of luck, wisdom and growth—is moving through the sign Capricorn. Your body map will include where Jupiter is moving through your physical body this year; December 2, 2019 to December 19, 2020.
Your body will thank you because: You'll know how to tap into each part of your body through your body natal map. (i.e. Venus in Gemini signifies abundance through your hands, so you might meet your love via social media (using your hands) and communicating (texting, the Internet, etc.).
This will help you prioritize your own health, joy and energy this year because: Knowing yourself, by personalizing your planetary placements and birth chart, is a key to wellness and lasting happiness.
My favorite personal short ritual for self-care in 2020 is: Giving my body the love and attention that it deserves through awareness, movement and meditation. Each morning, I sit up in bed, knowing where my natal placements are and connecting to my body. I listen to them, giving each aspect of myself the love and attention it deserves.
