[00:03:00] Jamie: for joining. I love being here. I love talking to you, Amanda. This is so great.
[00:03:04] Amanda: Yay. Awesome. Jamie. For, for people, this is a question I’ve been asking because it comes up a lot and I’ve been sort of surprised at how consistent it is. When people think about having an astrology reading, they get nervous and there’s this, oh God, like I, I’m curious, but I’m nervous because are you gonna tell me something I don’t wanna know?
[00:03:26] Are you gonna see something about me that’s bad? This is the one that like, makes me wanna give everyone a hug. It’s so cute and, and normal. Like it’s natural. So what do you say to people when, and first of all, do you encounter that? And second of all,
[00:03:38] Jamie: what do you say? I, I under. I understand cuz I think I would feel that way.
[00:03:43] I did not have an astrology reading until I was deep into my own astrology studies and I. That might be my scorpion that came out. I wanted to make sure I understood it before someone else, you know, was penetrating or like looking into that area of my life. But I just, you know, I wanna assure anyone that this is a very sacred space between you and your astrologer.
[00:04:03] It’s a, it’s a connection that you can have and there is nothing at all in your natal chart that is not on purpose and on time like you were designed with this cosmic blueprint that is absolutely beautiful. And as you move through your life, you’re gonna. A lot of beautiful potential. There’s times that you’re gonna have to overcome challenges and lean on old aspects or new aspects, and an astrologer can help you do that.
[00:04:26] They can kind of see through it. They’re the listener. They’re not, I wouldn’t say that they always hear, I mean, they’re, they’re on your team. They’re gonna hear your side of the story. They’re gonna hear your perspective and really help you kind of dig within and pull this, this energy out. Now those are, there’s all kinds of readings.
[00:04:40] I work with a lot of people that are, you know, going through big transitions in their life. I also work with, They’re beautiful entrepreneurs who are like, okay, is this my time to launch? Do I go in this direction and how do I get there? So no matter what you’re getting a reading for, just know it’s your space, it’s your connection.
[00:04:55] It’s like connecting with any kind of specialist. And I wish I had done it sooner. I think it would’ve probably answered a lot of questions for me when I was in my early twenties. Cuz when you do try to deal a lot of studying on your by yourself or when you start to, you know, kind of Google around, you’ll get conflicting answers or conflicting like, well I have this here and this is going here.
[00:05:14] Oh no, this transit’s coming over my rising, what, what does that mean? And it’s not. And, and a lot of times I. I found with my clients, they may come with that, but they walk away feeling like, wow, well that’s good. I was a little worried about that. And I remember having this really amazing, client not too long ago and, he was like, you know what?
[00:05:33] I’m feeling all this stuff and I’m listening to all this stuff and it’s saying all this supposed to be bad, but I’m doing great. And I’m like, well, you’re supposed to be doing great. Because he was, he was everything in his chart said that he was firing in the right direction because his particular chart said that he was equipped.
[00:05:45] For this energy. For him, it was amazing. He thrived on the intensity and the change. So he was just, they were playing his song, the universe was playing his song, or someone else, it, it may not have felt that way. So I think an astrologer can help you and that’s how I approach it. And yeah, I definitely recommend it, especially this month.
[00:06:01] How can you not, you know, if you don’t, if you don’t wanna do it now. It’s just, just a juicy discount. I can’t wait to, to meet so many people on the other side of this. It’s gonna be fun. Amazing.

[00:06:43] Amanda: astrologyhub.com/connect.
[00:06:45] And alright, let’s talk about this week a little bit about Jamie. She’s been practicing for over a decade. She’s written 22 novels. Like what? Amazing. She blends traditional and modern techniques in her practice.
Theme for the Week
[00:06:58] Amanda: And so Jamie, let’s give us a big picture of the week. What is the theme and
[00:07:03] Jamie: why? Okay, so when I first looked at this week, I got really excited.
[00:07:07] I was like, wow, there’s my optimism, good stuff coming in. And of course, when I like sat down and looked a little bit deeper at the transits, I got a, a vibe of the undercurrent that we’re all kind of feeling we’re in that space of change and ending and beginnings. So if I had to give a good theme for this week, it would be.
[00:07:26] Playing with fire as you stand a stride. Two worlds. And I think what we’re gonna find as you work with this energy this week is that you are going to be simultaneously releasing slash re-envisioning the future you want and taking action on big opportunities that supports that life that you want, even if it’s just outside of your comfort.
[00:07:48] Amanda: Woo. That’s exciting. . Wow. So releasing. And so we’re, we’re letting go at the same time as we’re taking advantage of new things that are coming into our sphere and it could feel like playing with fire. So what, why do you say playing with fire? That’s very specific.
[00:08:05] Jamie: Yeah. Well, we have a lot of fire in the sky and we have a couple of transits that would come into that.
[00:08:10] But to put it in overall context of what I mean, This is the week before we kick off. Eclipse season next week. Is that first eclipse and Aries. It’s squares, Pluto. This is like your pregame. This is the, I don’t wanna say calm before the storm, but th This is a juicy week. It’s gonna be a different story after we move into the next one.
[00:08:28] So we have this pause. We’re also stepping into a week where the last quarter moon is. So that represents releasing, that’s the releasing part of it. That inward reflection, like thinking of that Libra New Moon, what was out of balance? What was out of harmony? How can I release. And then on the flip side, we have a lot of Venus and Jupiter energy.
[00:08:48] Now, this is good stuff to work with because it brings big emotions and ideas and opportunities, and when you put these two together, what you have is a week where it gives you the P, the power, and the inspiration to embrace those endings and beginnings with really high level positive vibrations and solid intentions about where you can go into.
[00:09:08] You know, once you get to the other side of this other, this big season that we’re coming into,
[00:09:13] Amanda: Jamie, if people are navigating these changes and other people are involved, which normally they are, right? So partners, children, coworkers, you know, whatever it is, how, how’s the, how’s the communication and the sort of collaborative energy this week is?
[00:09:34] Is it more of like an I energy, like about me and the changes I’m making or is it more cooperative?
[00:09:41] Jamie: The, the, the tricky thing is it’s both. Mm-hmm. , it, it is really is a different kind of energy. Now. There’s some energy, like one of the first transits that we have is today, it’ll be light this evening where I live on the central time zone is Venus moving into Gemini
[00:09:55] that’s kind of where you get a little bit of a stride. Two worlds Gemini, two places, this and that. So Venus, to kind of put this in context, is walking into Gemini’s house. Mars just left it on March 25th. So if you were like, walked into a room or showed up to a meeting and you know, something just went down, it was like really intense.
[00:10:14] Like, what’s that vine in the air? Venus is walking into this kind of room because, you know, Mars was in Gemini from the end of August all the way until, you know, March 25th. So that was in some intense back and forth energy and I think a lot of the, even a lot of recent readings I’ve had, With, despite all the big energy that we have going on, they, they keep, they tend to notice that Mars energy, cuz it’s really potent and quick.
[00:10:36] So Venus is gonna walk into this room and she’s gonna have like a little bit of a lightheartedness to it. Like a fun jovial, okay. Like, all right, well, let’s lighten up the room. Let’s tell a few jokes. It may be too soon to joke about some of the things that you just went through, but you still have this harmony, this dualistic view that you can work with.
[00:10:54] Just a side note here. Venus will answer to Mercury cuz she’s in Gemini. Mercury’s still in Taurus, so we still have that Taurus power of Venus Kind of moving into this, this mutual reception. She has a lot of beautiful grace that comes into this week, but right after that, like the next day is where we have the two biggest energies of the week, and that’s where the fire comes in.
[00:11:14] But first we have Venus in Jim and I, she will try and Pluto for the first time. It’s her first conversation with Pluto at zero Aquarius. This is, this is a, when I think about the first time planets, you know, have a conversation, a new sign, it always kind of reminds me, and I’m a baseball mom, but it reminds me of, um, the first pitch.
[00:11:35] So for baseball, you have the batter and you have the pitcher. Now the first pitch is usually the best one that you’re gonna see. And once it’s thrown, if it’s a strike, then you know, the pitchers, moms, all the families, they, they clap, they cheer, and it’s great. Ironically, So do the batters moms, at the very least, they cheer.
[00:11:52] But what they say is, now you’ve seen it. Now you’re ready. Now you’ve seen it so you know exactly what’s coming at you. You know how to react to it, whether it was a, a nasty curve ball or some kind of drop in, you know, change up. You know what’s coming and you know how to react to the next one. So even though this is a trying and a harmonic kind of energy, I still think it’s important to notice it cuz not a couple of these planets.
[00:12:15] We’re gonna have a few short brief conversations with Pluto. Then he is gonna retrograde back. So it’s good to notice these high points. And what’s also interesting about this is that just recently, March 16th, Venus Squared, Pluto, but they were in Capricorn and Aries, now they’re in a different place with a different face.
[00:12:34] So it’s kind of, if you think about that, go back to the Venus moving into Gemini. Venus walking into a tense room. Last time Venus saw Pluto, it was a little tense. They were wrapping up a story like we’ve been through this 14 years. You can dig it up, put it on the table. We’re now done. Well, now they’re in a news story and so it, it is a different face, different energy, and even though this is air, this is mind, it’s mental where these sci, where these planets are at the Pluto brings in all of it mind, body, emotion and an intensity to it.
[00:13:03] It’s really digging into that deep psychological stuff and pulling it up to the top and expressing.
[00:13:10] Amanda: I love that you brought in the baseball mom thing. . I, as you know, I have three brothers Yes. Who all played, some of them into professional baseball, all played collegiate baseball. So I, my entire childhood was getting dragged around from baseball game to baseball game to baseball game.
[00:13:27] So I know, and my ex-husband was a pitcher in professional baseball. I mean, I, I, I’m, I’m with you. My question is, so we, so we’re seeing the pitch, right? We’re seeing the first pitch. It’s Venus for the first time having a conversation with Pluto in Aquarius. Yes. What is that? What is that gonna look like?
[00:13:48] Like what does that mean? Does that mean themes around veian things in our life, we’re getting the first flavor of like, of Aquarius, of how Aquarius is gonna color this aspect of life. Like how does that mean? What does that mean for us person?
[00:14:03] Jamie: Yeah, I do think that what this is gonna do, and it kind of plays into how the rest of the week is gonna work out.
[00:14:08] We are seeing, compassion come in, you know, like, not like you wait, this is, this is who I am. Like, cuz Venus and Gemini is gonna take things a little bit lighter, like in general there. It’s not very deep. It’s not, I’m not to say that if you have Venus and Gemini, you’re not very deep, but it’s not, you have a way of being deep and connecting with people without it feeling.
[00:14:26] Heavy and like I’m sinking into this, or like this is, you know, weighing me down a little bit. Like there’s a little bit of, um, higher expression and this is mercury, you know, in mercury’s higher and lower expression, how he, how expresses itself. So I think that this is a great energy that’s gonna help us express the heart.
[00:14:46] That we have for our community and the world that we’re in. Like what are we a part of? What do we wanna be a part of? What world do we want to exist? So we do have that on a very collective level. On a personal level, um, it is seeing, uh, the big picture. It’s kind of like, You know, I, I would say glass bottom boat, but this is not water.
[00:15:04] Like kind of think of those big, like air balloons and imagine it being a glass bottom. This is the first look at all the possibilities, like what could actually happen. Where could we really go with this? If we put our hearts behind this, if we connected, and, you know, just if you wanna get some pregame stuff here to really pay attention to this the next time.
[00:15:25] Venus and Pluto will meet up or have a conversation is June 5th. And but that time Pluto will be going in retrograde and there’ll be in opposition. So between now and June 5th, it’s like, okay, what are we gonna work with? How can we work with the harmony? And usually ironically, um, Trends are something we miss in our transits.
[00:15:44] We don’t really notice it. Like if you were to, to pull up your chart and it’s all blue and it’s all little triangles, you would almost, well, some of us, depending on your chart, would be a little bit bored because we feel activated by squares and those action points. I do think you’re gonna notice this just because it’s Pluto and it’s the first time, but I really want you to pay more attention to it because it’s the first conversation.
[00:16:04] The next time you see it, it’s gonna be an opposition. You’re definitely gonna be the batter in the pitcher trying to, to knock it outta the park. So, Okay,
[00:16:10] Amanda: Jamie. Exactly.
Day to Day Breakdown
[00:16:11] Amanda: What days are we looking at
[00:16:13] Jamie: for this? Okay, this is going to happen on tomorrow, Tuesday the 11th. April 11th.
[00:16:18] Amanda: So Jamie, you’re saying today the biggest thing happening is Venus moving into Gemini. Yes. And then this Pluto energy that you’re talking about with Venus and Pluto, which I love what you’re saying, this is an opportunity to, to look at where we have love for our community, what we wanna create.
[00:16:38] This is this first chance to really see some sort of big picture of what’s possible. When is that happening? Is that Tuesday? Like what days of the week is.
[00:16:48] Jamie: All right. So the second transit on that day is a big one. It’s my favorite one. And when I looked at the week, I was like, wow, that’s definitely why that’s my week.
[00:16:55] Cuz Jupiter, I love Jupiter. But what we’re gonna have is the sun conjunct Jupiter. So that’s later in that day. So think about that. You had that first meeting, Venus and Pluto. Then we’re gonna have the sun conjunct Jupiter. Now, this is an annual transit. The sun and Jupiter meet up every year, but they meet up in a different sign.
[00:17:12] Okay? So what I love about this, and this is where the fire comes into this week, is that this is an Aries, that’s a fiery sign. The sun is exalted in Aries, which means he has his little crown on. He’s feeling really at home there. And this is gonna bring a lot of inspiration. Like what is that possibility?
[00:17:28] What wants to come out in you? Those bold new moves. , where do you wanna explore what is the new journey? It’s like these two planets are gonna stamp your passport and say, okay, this is, you’re gonna go on your way because you’re not gonna see these two again in this house together for another 12 years.
[00:17:43] Like the last time it was, there was 2011. So if you think back to 2011, what did I change in April of 2011 that this, this energy kind of sparked, um, it, and it’s, if you look at, it’s almost like with this energy, it. Now when you get really hyped up and you’re like walking in the room, you’re like, I’m ready to do this.
[00:17:59] I’m like ready to go. How do I need to do it? It’s that kind of energy. And then you step into this like garden of possibility, like it could be anything. We could go anywhere cuz that’s Aries like, oh, we don’t even know what’s on the other side of that curtain. How exciting is that? And then if you think about what I said at the beginning, that sort of takes the edge off of knowing you’re going into the Eclipse portal because you have this excitement coming at you.
[00:18:19] Like we could literally create anything that we wanted. How fun would that be if we could do that? Pretty good energy there. On Tuesday. It’s very, um, bold. Now I think there’s also, Adding into that same day on Tuesday, those two big transits, mercury will sim semi square Neptune. What that’s gonna do is probably make it hard to focus a little bit.
[00:18:38] You’re not gonna really know how to react cuz you’re gonna have these two big energies. It could be a lot of opportunities coming at you. It could be that you’re kind of swelling in deep with that, you know, mindset of possibilities that Venus and Pluto energy at the same time. So I would just recommend that you really try to ground into the moment as much as you can.
[00:18:53] It is varying fiery. Practical approaches that will really help you think about, you know, what can I scale here? What can I grow with, what do I have the bandwidth, you know, and who I am now and where I wanna go. It’s a great energy no matter what with this week is in, in that day especially, is to step out of your comfort zone, to, to use the courage of Aries, to step outside of it.
[00:19:15] Um, I love how that, that’s coming through on that day. And then another thing to note about this period right here is we have Mars. Mars rules Aries, and a lot of times with Mars we always feel Mar. Before it gets here. So I would think that we may have been feeling this energy for a couple of days. This is the explanation point when you feel it now to add some more juice to it if you needed it to be juicier.
[00:19:38] Both the moon and Mars are out of bounds at the same time of this transit and that they, they all tie into the rulership and out of bounds means that these, these planets are a little bit exaggerated. They’re like a little bit out of character. They’re more of what they normally would be. So that’s always a good thing if you’re thinking about, you know, Jupiter in the sun.
[00:19:56] But you know, just on the, the flip side of this, This kind of energy, you still have to be reactive to it. It, it’s not like you sit there and like all the blessings rain down and you just have to exist and breathe. You’re gonna have to be reactive. Set intentions a thing to walk with this whole week, but definitely like around this point are I am statements.
[00:20:17] Like, really think about how you’re talking to yourself and what you say. Like if you’re saying, I’m tired, I’m bored, I’m blocked, I’m over this. Like, you’re gonna see a lot of that. If you’re like, I’m happy, I am healthy, I am thriving, I am going in this direction, I am whatever inserts the narrative, it’s gonna, it’s gonna feel like a magic.
[00:20:34] Like it’ll almost take your breath away, it’ll knock your socks off because it’ll happen so fast. If. Change your mindset can I ask a
[00:20:41] Amanda: question about the, um, you said we can’t just like sit back and let the blessings rain down on us. We need to be reactive.
[00:20:49] When you are saying reactive, are you saying like, we need to take action with the cues that we’re receiving or we need to Yeah. Like we can’t just sit and receive, like this is a more, um, engaged
[00:21:02] Jamie: sort. Absolutely. Well all, all energy is all energy. Depends on your attitude and your approach to it. But like say it’s a beautiful 80 degree, sunny.
[00:21:13] Amazing day, and you’re in your blacked out room with your curtains, like your curtains are blacked out and you’re watching Netflix, you’re not gonna get a tan, you’re not gonna feel the sun on your face. You’re not gonna engage in that, you know, moment of this is what this feels like. So it’s, a lot of it is, what are you calling into your life?
[00:21:29] Because you have, knowing that you have that power, that empowerment, that kind of goes back to Pluto to bring this in and how can you express it. But I think a lot of times when we see this energy, people will think, well, nothing really good happens to me, or I didn’t really notice it that way because my attention was going in a different direction.
[00:21:45] So it really is about mindset and engagement. So like if you like say you’re looking for a new job. They’re not gonna knock on your door. You’re gonna have to like apply or at least consider what kind of job would I want in order for a friend to say, Hey, I have a I, I have a connection here. Are you interested in this?
[00:22:02] If you’re looking to move somewhere, hey, I might know about a house. Like you have to put the thought and the intention and the action out in order for it to be received. Thank you.
[00:22:11] Amanda: That is very helpful.
[00:22:13] Hey, Joji here. I’m Astrology Hubs podcast producer and an astrologer over at Astrologer Connect, and we’ll be right back with the weather from Wednesday through the weekend. But I just wanted to make sure that you knew about Astrologer Connects Reading Bonanza Month, we’re gonna have all sorts of special events, but the biggest thing is that any reading booked in April, so even if you’re having a reading all the way in December, as long as you book it this month, you are eligible for a 20% off by using the.

[00:23:00] Jamie: Okay, good stuff. Okay, so on Wednesday, I think you will, we’ll still be processing a lot of this. We do have a little transit on this day, and that’s Venus Semi semi square, Chiron Now.
[00:23:12] What the trick is with this energy is it’s gonna make communication a little bit tricky. That’s where the me and the you come in, like you’re almost like a little bit so wrapped up in what you’re going through that you may not hear what the other person’s going through. So like imagine like coming home to your husband and you’re like, I’ve had this horrible day and he’s trying to tell you about his day or something, and you’re just not hearing each other because it’s, your world feels encompassing based on either those big opportunities that you’re working with or those psychological revolutions.
[00:23:39] So I. On this day. Just be mindful. Wednesday, April the 12th of communication. Just try to be really gentle with whatever you say, like deliver news the way that you would want to to be to receive it on the other end. Cuz it’s also very good karmic energy that way. And then, The next day, April 13th, that’s when we have that last quarter moon.
[00:23:59] So sometimes those can be like a little tension depending on how you work with that waning energy. The big thing is just to notice, okay, I had this big harvest from this full moon. You had big winds, something was a wind, but you also in that full moon light, could see some imbalances, things that were out of harmony.
[00:24:14] And this is when you would start to make note of that. And over the next couple of weeks, as we approach that eclipse, you’re gonna start releasing it and letting it go. But being conscious, Yes, I need to let this go. I’m co-dependent on this, or I’m not independent enough in this. That’s something that you would start to work with, and it may be because you went through the psychological depths and all that inspiration.
[00:24:34] You have these opportunities. You’re in a better space to do that now. The next biggest transit we have is the next day, Friday, April the 14th, and that’s when we have Venus Square Saturn. The same time we also have Saturn sextile the North node, but Venus squaring Saturn. It’s almost as if, it’s a little bit of a reality check.
[00:24:53] Okay, because we went through this big opportunity, this depth with Pluto a trying with Pluto, so imagine like getting along really well with the Lord of Death, but then having a hard time with, you know, time karma, which is Saturn. So that’s like Venus’s mood. Like, she’s like, okay, come on, be a little bit light of heart.
[00:25:08] Like it’s, we don’t have to take ourselves too seriously and Saturn’s like, you’re right, but we kind of do, and this is how you’re gonna work with this energy. So it’s almost like, how can you act? A lightness of heart, but also integrity. Like yes, I understand that’s very important to you and I honor it, but I’m not, or, or like, not take things too personally because I think we might feel that way.
[00:25:30] Like, this is my cause, this is where I’m going, this is my dream. And it is. And and that’s the only person you have to convince of that is yourself. Like you don’t have to convince anybody else that you are on purpose or on time. It’s just you. So with that day, I think I would just think about, um, you.
[00:25:46] . Again, deliver news the way you wanna be, deliver, well wait the way you would like to deliver it. And I think that Saturn sextile, the north node will take a little bit of edge off of this even though it’s a lighter transit, cuz it’s gonna feel, in essence, whether it’s an ending or a beginning, as if Destiny’s calling your name like this is, I understand that I need to go in this direction and I understand that I may need.
[00:26:08] Close a few doors or some doors may be closed on me in order for me to find that path that I’m on. But this is on purpose, this is on time. So that’s where Venus and Saturn in general bring a lot of seriousness to relationships. Like, it’s like that reality check. It could be also a very bonding, like, you know, we, this is a deep commitment that we have, or this is the action step we’re gonna take to meet that.
[00:26:31] And then we’re, we’re heading to the weekend now on Saturday, April 15th, the sun is gonna semis cell Neptune. Now this. Well think about Saturdays we have this transit, but we also have like an almost eight hour void course. Moon. It’s always good to have a void course moon on a Saturday because that means that we can putter, we can kind of take our time and relax and be creative.
[00:26:50] But when we’re working with this sun and Neptune energy, um, especially coming off of Jupiter in that Aries, it’s kind of, you know, what is your dream and what are you willing to. To get there, you know, what are those steps that you can take? And sometimes the step is really just declaring it. I am, um, like I want to work here.
[00:27:08] I want to have this relationship. I want health this way. And then that’s the first step. The next step is, you know, research it, whatever. It’s the baby steps. You don’t need to see ’em all. Just that first little one, like think about how you would walk through the walk through fog in general. It’s a good day to relax, put.
[00:27:26] Process. Remember, we’re, we’re approaching those eclipses and as we move into the next week, now closing out the week on Sunday, April 16th, that day’s gonna feel a little bit faster, especially coming off of a day that had a really long void. Um, but it is more so again, a lot about processing everything that’s on your plate.
[00:27:43] Cause remember, I think the eclipse is just three days away from this point. So I wouldn’t overload anything in your life like, and that’s gonna be hard to do. Like, that was the like, Ooh, I see the undercurrent when I looked at the week because you have this big Jupiter energy. And then you have an eclipse and usually before an eclipse it already feels heavy.
[00:27:59] You don’t wanna overload yourself with anything. So really just kind of like, you know, organize and process and know that though you don’t know what’s on the other side of that or where you’re going, you know, exa you have this optimism, this focus of where you wanna go and how you’re gonna get there.
[00:28:13] Cuz that’s, that’s really your job with it, is to have the in. Wow.
[00:28:20] Amanda: So the, this is a big week. I mean, there’s, there’s a lot of amazing energy and what I’m kind of taking away from it is leaning into the expansive possibilities, the, the need and knowingness around change, and like that being okay, but so like allowing that big expansive.
[00:28:47] and then making sure that there’s a reality check around it. Like there’s, there’s like not, I mean, I hear what you’re saying with Saturn and seriousness, but like kind of, um, how willing are you to commit to this? Mm-hmm. , you know, how will, how willing are you to like, do what’s required in order for this vision or.
[00:29:12] You know, next step to come through. And then it sounds like we have a weekend. That really should be, I mean, ideally we would dedicate to spaciousness. Mm-hmm. processing, relaxing and almost like garnering our energy. For the changes that will be happening during the eclipse season. So it’s like, like you said, pregame.
[00:29:35] Yeah, like pregame is identifying the changes identi, and we’ve been in this like, energy of change for a while. I feel like I’m saying this over and over each week on the weekly weather. Yeah. But we’re, you know, we’re in this energy of change and th this week we’re, we’re given some really beautiful energy around it.
[00:29:53] Some like really supportive energy around it. And it’s like that gut check moment of. Are you ready to do this? For real? Yeah, because it’s coming.
More on the Energy Ahead
[00:30:02] Jamie: Absolutely that, that, that’s it in a nutshell. And you know, when I was thinking about this week and um, something came up from my childhood that was crazy and I itri it reminds me of this energy and this tunnel, but when we first moved to Nashville, there was a theme park.
[00:30:17] Uh, now it’s a hotel, but it was called. Opryland. And we had gotten season passes for it. So I lived there cuz my parents did everything in abundance. But we, like, we lived there on the weekends and there was this one ride that I was just barely old. To get on, but I loved it for so many reasons. But it was an indoor rollercoaster.
[00:30:33] And this is, I live in the south, okay, so it’s hot, as you know, hot. So this is an indoor air conditioning already. You felt great about it, but the lines were, were impossible, like they were so lines you waited so long to get up to this and you went inside. And the first thing you felt was like this cool air come across and you’re like, okay, I’m starting to get a release.
[00:30:49] I’m inside. I’m not in the sun on the sidewalk. And you sit down on this rollercoaster, you’re strapped into this thing, this big thing. And I mean, it’s one of those rollercoasters where you know you’re probably gonna go upside down or something. And granted it’s inside, so you have no idea what this rollercoaster looks like.
[00:31:04] So when you start going in it, like when you, when it, when it finally starts, you feel the cool breeze. You know, summer, you’re feeling great. They have like a harmonic kind of fun, sensual music, and you’re going into the darkness, like it is pitch dark. You cannot see anything else, and you feel yourself sway like this.
[00:31:19] There might be a few lights here and there. You’re kind of, you don’t know how high you are, how low you are or anything. Then there’s certain flashes of lights and then, When some of ’em would light up, you would realize how high up you were. Or you would realize there’s a big, you’re about to go upside down or you’re about to dive or something, and you would just kind of hold on cause the lights went out again and you would feel it, you would go through it and then you would just be so elated cuz you felt the cool breeze and the music would change and it was.
[00:31:43] It was insane. The r the ride’s name was called Chaos, and that’s kind of what it felt like. But then, and when it ended, you just wanted to do it again cuz you never really knew it all. But that’s what it reminds me of, like, you’re going into this tunnel, it’s gonna feel like, okay, I’m optimistic, I’m here to have this intention.
[00:31:58] I I, you sit on the intention for this and through these rides or whatever, I’m strapped in, I’m ready, I know what I’m doing and I’ll be fine on the other side of it. But that’s, it’s kinda like what it is like going into that darkness know. You know, this is the life I’m willing to create and this is what I’m gonna do for it.
[00:32:13] And I understand that this chapter is closing. Not because it was bad, not because it wasn’t, you know, perfect for me. At one point, it was perfect for me. At one point, it was part of my story. It was part of what I needed to learn and express, but now I’ve learned it, and so now it’s woven into my soul. But I’m going on to this story because I’m ready to make an impact over.
[00:32:33] In that way. Jamie, I
[00:32:34] Amanda: absolutely love your metaphors. I love when you, because I could feel that rollercoaster. It’s like, oh my God, like the central music and the, and the, the cold, fresh air. And, but, you know, you’re, you know, you’re, you’re like opted in for a bit of chaos and a bit of unknown and a bit of potentially darkness.
[00:32:57] But what you’re saying is the intention. To commit to it and just be like, okay, I’m gonna do it. I’m strapped in, I’m safe, I’ve got this, I can do it. It’s part of my path. And, uh, I’m resourced. And on the other side of it, I’ll probably wanna do it again, which is hilarious. It’s like, how, how many of you, especially people have birthed babies, It’s
[00:33:19] Jamie: like right after you’re like, one more time
[00:33:22] Amanda: Well, well actually, usually right after, it’s like, I will never do that again. But then two weeks later or a couple years later, it’s like, oh, I’m ready to have another baby. It’s like, are you kidding? Like it is. It’s so intense, right? But that’s what happens. It’s, I always think of this as almost like God’s grace or the, the universe’s grace.
[00:33:40] It’s like we go through these super intense times. We go through times. When we’re in it, it’s like, I don’t know if I can make it through. Like, I don’t know if I have what it takes to actually get through this. And yet, with time, with retrospect, with perspective, with age, with wisdom, you know, all these healing balming things.
[00:34:04] The, the, the, the pain of it. Like we can still feel it. Like I, I know it was there, I know it was really hard, but, but. But you don’t feel it as acutely anymore, you know, it, it becomes, it becomes different. And so I think we are ready to jump into new experiences and try new things. And thank goodness for that because without that, we wouldn’t grow and we wouldn’t evolve and.
[00:34:30] And, and I don’t, I think our souls come here to grow and evolve. You know, I think that’s a part of it. Like, so I, I’m just, I’m, I’m feeling what you’re saying. I know some people you feel like you’re about to, to head down that roller coaster ride and just go, oh my God, I’m free falling and I’m in this whole new territory and I don’t, I don’t even know what to do.
[00:34:50] But just the remembrance that at some point in your life, like, I don’t know, a year two, Three year, 10 year, 20 years, you might be like, all right, I’m ready for some change again. Yeah. Like, I’m ready for some chaos. You know, I’m like ready for something different. And it sounds like a lot of us are there.
[00:35:08] Yeah. I, I love what you said about it being woven into our story, though. Exactly. That experience that we, we’ve had, it’s still a part of us. We’re not leaving that it all gets woven into the fabric of who we are. And so it’s not like a complete turning your back on wherever you’ve been, it’s just allowing that to be woven into the place where you’re going next.
[00:35:27] Jamie: And it often becomes your medicine too. Medicine that you give other people or medicine of reflection. And coming back to that I am stuff too. And if you think, and I think a lot of us, her li listening or watching have been through a dark night of the soul, and in those times, And something we don’t usually notice cause it feels so heavy.
[00:35:43] But as soon as you ask the question, then the resources show up. Like even if it’s just a thought, and it could be a song, it could be an idea or like a presence or a connection or someone who calls and says, you know what, I’m, I’m really, I’ve been thinking about you a lot. And it’s just like, it, it breaks you out of it, but it takes the courage, which we have a lot of areas this week, to just to ask the question like how, how do I get.
[00:36:03] What, what, what is my answer? Like here? What, what do, what I need to do? And if you sit with questions, you’re gonna find your answers and questions lead to intentions. Intentions lead to actions. And then trusting that no matter what happens to you, you have everything you need. Like you, you have it all.
[00:36:18] Like you may not know it, but you do, and it’s just making you stronger. All you have to worry about, step one.
[00:36:24] Amanda: Jamie, my question, in the biggest dark night of the soul that I went through, Was like, what’s the purpose of this? You know, like, my life is falling apart at the seams. You know, why? Like what is, what is the reason for this?
[00:36:43] What, why is this happening? And it was astrology. It was astrology that gave me that context, that gave me that, and it was the readings that I was having at the time. So maybe you’re asking that question and a reading will be the answer for that. You know, an astrologer that comes into your life and it’s one of the reasons you say it becomes your medicine.
[00:37:03] It’s one of the reasons why we are even doing this astrologer Connect reading platform is because. I know how powerful getting the answer to your question at the right time, especially as translated through a skilled and compassionate and wonderful astrologer can be. So it’s, it’s it, what you’re talking about is this full circle medicine and like all these things we go through in them bec becoming part of our path and part of what we offer and part of what we can give to others.
[00:37:32] It’s, it’s all there. It’s all there. Yeah. I know you’ve probably had similar
[00:37:37] Jamie: experiences. Absolutely. And I, what I love about, and one reason why I was so drawn to astrology as an independent student and, and, and studying things too, is just the timing. Even for o not, not only like, you know, when is the storm gonna be over, but when, when is my actual opportunity here?
[00:37:51] When we work with clients we’re, it, it’s not always a clear cut like, okay, the storm is over now here’s all your opportunities. Sometimes you have opportunities in one area of your life and challenges in the other. Yeah. But it’s always awesome to, to really sell someone. And I’ve had a lot of this recently, which is kind of inspiring this week, where I’ve had the privilege of telling a lot of people, you’re almost out of the dark night.
[00:38:11] This, this, this, this break is that break in that you’re, you’re going in this direction. Like they don’t even realize they’ve been in it cuz it’s been such a heavy, like, this is my life, this is what I’m like soaking in. But to let ’em know that, you know what, we’re gonna get to this point and this point, and this is how you can actively work with it.
[00:38:26] And when I see you again, or if I see you in six weeks, you’re gonna have a whole different personality. And what’s great is when they email you back or call you back and be like, oh my gosh. I have a whole different personality. Yeah. I, I, I like, I, I feel completely different about that. Like, or, and it’s not anything that I am particularly doing with them.
[00:38:42] It’s that inner work that they’re doing and knowing, okay, this is where you are. Like I’m navigating for you. This is where you are. And, you know, sometimes people will want to continue with something like you said, like, I like my life and.
[00:38:55] I just say, you know what, you were really gonna like the next one, . You’re really gonna like, what’s
[00:38:59] Amanda: it’s gonna be even better. Yes. I like that. And it, it’s
[00:39:02] Jamie: just opportunities. But I mean, to, to say that, oh, it’s, if you know the timing and if you, if you know that you’re born with it, you’re gonna be fine. It really is just part of it.
[00:39:10] It’s almost like a rite of passage for the soul, like everything that you go through and, and that’s not something we have a lot in our, you know, current society Right. Of passages. We have a lot of like, well, everything should be fair and, and even, and, Which is, you know, on some degree is correct, but the rite of passage really let you know that you had reached to this point, you went through this big thing, and now you’re an adult, or now you’re a woman, or now you’re, what have you, because you went through that rite of passage, and that’s what your transits are.
[00:39:34] In general, they’re, they’re helping you move through these, this, this energy that you’ve came here with, this energy that only you can express. There’s not another person. on this planet with your chart, with your perspective. Like you, you are so needed in what you’re experiencing and your experience is so unique.
[00:39:50] Even though it sounds like some, like someone else could be like going through the same themes as you, but it, it’s not the same. It, it’s gonna feel very personal to you and how you react to it, but it really is about inward, not outward. Cuz you’re gonna look to, because if you’re looking to. Well, you know, they, they’re surviving this just fine.
[00:40:10] I’m over here struggling. Then you’re more worried about them, and your attention is gonna be like trying to mirror someone else that doesn’t have your lineup at all. Like, you have your own path, your own soul, your own mission that you’re working on. So, endings can be hard, especially if you’re a fixed sign.
[00:40:26] I’m a fixed sign. I know that. You know, I, I, I. It takes me a long time to let people in my circle, so I don’t really like to see ’em leave when they leave because like, you know, you went through a lot to get here. So I mean, it can be really hard to let go of that. And even if you’re not a fixed sun, a rising sign, you have fixed energy somewhere in your chart.
[00:40:43] You have a fixed area in your chart. So we all go through this like, no, that’s gonna stay. But the universe that says everything changes, it, it, it all changes. Nothing stops, nothing’s stagnant. It’s just part of.
[00:40:54] Amanda: Jamie, what you were saying about rights of passage and how we have these, you know, I, I like to think of the, the dances that we have with the planets as they move through our chart.
[00:41:03] It’s like, who’s on my dance card? Like, who, oh, I got Pluto on my dance card right now. Okay. I’m gonna be dancing with Pluto. Like that’s what’s happening and there’s no changing that. So, all right. Pluto, what do you got? Like, let’s dance together. Right? Um, that’s an example which is current and personal right now for me.
[00:41:21] But one of the things I was thinking is I read this book called Mutant Messages from Down Under about the, a Aborigines in Australia. It’s an, it’s a brilliant book, and one of the things that it talked about is how they would name their own birthdays, quote unquote, when they went through. A rite of passage so I could proclaim after this Pluto, after this Pluto transit, I could be like, I evolved, I grew.
[00:41:51] Let’s have a party because I am different now. Like I went through a rite of passage and I’m gonna declare that it’s time to party. Like it’s my birthday. This, it’s my birthday. It’s a new me that has been, And so they would actually identify themselves personally when it was time to celebrate a next level, like a, an evolution of the soul.
[00:42:16] And often that gets accompanied with, with name changes. You know, I, I know for me, part of going through my divorce and being in Hawaii and getting a name given to me by my Kumu Hula, which was ole, which means the flower that never fades, which. A nod to my soul that, that honoring her and honoring the evolution of my soul by putting that a fragment of pua maoli into my name was, was an acknowledgement for me, to me and the universe through my Kumu to me of, you’re different now.
[00:42:52] You’re different. Like this is a different phase and I, I, I remember, um, Caitlin Castell at our game Changing Transits event went through her Chiron return and at the end of her Chiron return, which happens at age 50. She changed every aspect of her name, first, middle, and last name, totally new. So it’s these, you’re right, in our culture we don’t acknowledge these things.
[00:43:14] We don’t, it isn’t in our language, it isn’t in our how we do things, although, let’s bring that back. Let’s hear Astrology hub. Let’s bring that back because it’s so needed and I think our souls crave it. The soul craves the acknowledgement of being in that fire. You know, being in that fire of transformation in that initiatory phase.
[00:43:35] And it craves the acknowledgement when we come out the other side, new and different and changed and like at that next level of whoever it is that we came here to beat.
[00:43:47] Jamie: Yeah. And, and acknowledging the fire and knowing that you’re in it is a lot easier than pretending everything’s fine all the time or like
[00:43:53] Amanda: Yes. And how about, how about here in this community we are able to say I’m in a Pluto transit. Yeah. Like Pluto’s almost sun. And people are like, oh, okay. I understand. Like, you know, I’m Saturns Saturns, um, you know, on my ascendant. Oh, okay. I understand. Like we got you like. You know, and, and to even be able to say like, I’ve been there, you know, of course it’s always different.
[00:44:14] It manifests different in people’s lives, but I understand the energetic signature of that. Like, I, I understand how that can feel. Yeah. You know.
[00:44:21] Jamie: Yeah. And it’s good to know that, I mean, I, that’s what I love about not only our, our inner circle private community, but also like the, just the podcast community too, is, I love watching the language underneath the videos or how people say that because it’s, you do learn, like, you feel like, okay, well I’m not alone in this, you know, maybe that Saturn is making me feel a little isolated.
[00:44:39] and it was, it was really funny cuz this actually happened to my daughter, but I, I had a, a recent couple cl clients like this too. They were like, you know, I, I just, I really would like to have more connections and their chart didn’t say that they were blocking any connections, but the, where their friends were in their chart were signs that were going through a lot of big transition.
[00:44:55] And I’m like, well, your friends are just really busy right now. Like it was cap, like they’re, they’re really busy, they’re going through a lot and they’re, they’re kind of going through the fire and knowing that like, Hey, it’s not you. Like no, you don’t have any like, cuz my chart doesn’t say, It was funny cuz I, she’s like, I don’t have any blocks that say that this shouldn’t be happening for me.
[00:45:11] I’m like, you’re right. And we follow the energy. Your friends are busy right now, but they’re gonna start emerging at this time, . And it was just like that, that epiphany. But yeah, and, but I, I love that. I love the language and I love that astrology does allow you to do this. And you know, like in game changing trends, it’s just talking about those chapters that we’re going through.
[00:45:31] It’s all big cuz we have those personally and then we also, you know, layer on the collective energy that we have right now. And it really is a lot. Um, it has a lot to do. Like I, like I said, I don’t wanna sound like a mom, but I had a lot to do with your attitude and your approach toward how you work with this energy that’s gonna make a difference in how you accept it.
[00:45:48] And like, you’ve got everything you need. Sometimes you have to look in and when you look in, all the help will come from outside or you’ll remember something. But there, there’s a lot of big opportunities this week to, to look at the. To have the courage to look inside and outside and strap yourself into that, rollercoaster and be ready to go into the darkness and, and trust that no matter how many twists or turns or upside downs, you’re gonna be just fine.
[00:46:13] And when it’s over, you’re gonna be like, wow. Like, I wanna do that again. Like, that was so fun. Not that the, the, the train is gonna be fun, but you’re gonna, that’s what the rollercoaster felt like. Like, man, I, it took me so long to get there, , now it’s over, kind of thing. Yes, it’s gonna be, It feels like it’s gonna take forever stepping into something like this, but before you know it, you’re gonna blink and you’re gonna be like, wow.
[00:46:35] Like that happened very fast in my life, and um,
[00:46:38] Amanda: I did it. I did, I dug deep. I found resources within myself. Support came when I needed at the right time. Like all of that. It’s, and and like you said earlier, it’s asking the questions. Yes. Like asking the questions and being open to the answers. And they’ll come in so many different ways.
[00:46:56] Yes. They’ll come in so many different ways. It’s not only in astrology reading that gives you the answers. I mean, that’s a great direct way, but it’ll come. The person at the grocery store just happens to say the right thing at the right time. You’re like, oh my gosh, the universe is speaking to me directly.
[00:47:08] Exactly. Yeah. Yes, it’s asking the questions. I love it.
