I have written before about how utterly magical it is to live your dream.
It is what I am doing right now, still on the Isle of Wight, still learning sailing, and still mastering the art of celestial navigation so I can marry it with astrocartography and serve my clients to an even higher level.
For me to get to this stage of my life has involved much sacrifice. It has been interesting to see how much easier my life became once my challenging Pluto transits ended.
The last two hits of Pluto quincunxing my Moon were the day I saw my beloved daughter Ruth in her coffin, and the last hit was five days after what would have been her 30th birthday. Pluto has been fairly quiet since then for me.
The Full Moon in July was an interesting one, as we had Ceres (the mother) conjunct the Sun, and Pluto conjunct the Full Moon. Ruth was as Plutonian as they get, and, yes, that week there was a sense of release. A quiet one, so subtle I almost missed it. We had a very Ceres Pluto relationship. The love between us both stayed constant, despite the separations we experienced.
How to start living your dream?
To truly live your dream what do you most have to do? I always start with journaling, preferably first thing in the morning. While on the Isle of Wight in blistering heat, I realised again how vital sunshine is to me.
When I was living in Italy, that realisation dawned slowly. But here, my first morning in the UK was spent sitting on a hotel terrace, sipping coffee, watching the world go by, loving the slow pace of life in the heat.
While I have been on the Isle of Wight, my life has slowed down for sure. Yet I am doing so much more of what I love. So, when you journal, write down what you love. Ten things. Then think – slowly of a way to marry them. Marrying the top three things you love is where living your dream starts.
I love writing. I love astrology. I love writing about astrology. But I also love writing about other things. I submit to places like WOW (women on writing) and get great feedback which encourages me further.
I love travelling. I need to travel. I have learnt, along the way, that travel balances me. I have Venus Jupiter on my Sun Moon midpoint. Beauty, learning and travelling are hence crucial to balance to inner and outer me.
I love sailing. So, these few weeks on the Isle of Wight I made it easy for myself to be as happy and fulfilled as I can be.
A week of sailing, a week of astrology and writing every day. So it happily goes!
Write your way into your dream life
This is how you start living the dream – by writing your way into it. Then buy magazines or books about your passion. Devour them. Create a vision board. Before I moved to Italy, I plastered every room in my house, not just with images of Italy, but with maps too. My friends thought I had gone nuts. I didn’t give a jot.
Those images and maps propelled me to my dream months faster than I could otherwise have got there, for sure.
And everything in my vision board was manifested. Including meeting a passionate Italian in an outdoor café!
If you want to write, join a writing group, If you want to sing, start with lessons or join a choir. If you want to travel, start with a weekend away. Five days in the sun changes everything.
Where is your Venus line? To create and love. Where is your Mercury line? To feel heard? Where is your Moon line? To feel more at home?
Write the life you want to truly live. Then take baby steps. My baby steps started all the way back in 2014 when I booked five days in Italy on a fact-finding mission to develop my photography business.
But I fell in love with Lucca instead. And went to the Puccini Opera festival. And had a fling with a passionate Italian. Which made me realise how small my life in Ireland was and that I wanted more. More passion. A more alive life.
And so, four months later I was living in Italy full-time. I went from there back to Ireland, then onto the USA for two and a half years to develop astrology.
Now it is the start of another season in my life. One where I marry astrology, sailing and writing. Travelling around the world by boat.
One week sailing, one week astrology. Writing all the time
Yes, it really can be that simple to manifest your dream life. You start by writing your way into it. It flows from there.
