Negative personality traits are the stumbling blocks on the road to success, health, wealth, and freedom from the grip of fear-based consciousness like anxiety, stress, and dis-ease.

Not the time for New Year’s Resolutions

The dead of winter is not the time for resolutions which is why many of us have trouble succeeding with them.  Save resolutions for the Springtime when new growth is abundant.  Right now, it is our time to die!  The time to let go and release that which we no longer need in order to achieve our highest good.

As we say goodbye to 2011, this is a great time to cleanse ourselves of one more layer of any and all negative qualities and conditions so that we can direct more energy to cultivating the positive qualities of our personality and fulfill the destiny of our soul.

How astrology helps us discover our purpose in life

Astrological insights can provide us with information that we can apply through the use of free will to chip away the excess marble of our personality and allow the masterpiece of our being-ness to be fully expressed.

In other words, astrology cuts right to the quick of our negative personality traits and shows us how to overcome them so that we can more fully express the positive qualities of our Sun sign, which is our Zodiacal purpose.  Expressing these positive qualities leads us to self-actualization, and all that this state encompasses in terms of sense of oneness, and connection to the divine within.  It is from this state of self-actualization that we operate and discover what is popularly known as our ‘bliss.’

Lead us from dark into immortality

These negative personality traits are qualities in us that bring lessons to us that we don't like: difficulties in relationships, struggles with intimacy, addictions, problems with authority, chronic dis-eases, poor stress management skills, inability to sustain employment, financial crises, emotional crises, spiritual crises, and the list goes on and on.

Actualizing our highest expression

The function of the Sun in our solar system is to provide vital energy to this planet, and in the horoscope the Sun provides the vital energy of our personality which supports the path of our soul: as above, so below.

Our Sun sign energy is a dominant energy pattern in us along with lots of other factors and influences that make up the sum total of who we are, such as family patterns, DNA – which will soon be replaced by the biology of perception for determining our physical conditions, religion, culture, conditioning, social influences, etc.

In the system of astrology, expressing the positive qualities of our Sun sign and overcoming the patterns associated with the negative qualities of our Sun sign is the path to actualizing our oneness.

Astronomically, each of the planets comes from the Sun.  In the horoscope, the function of each of the planets represents our link to our oneness.  Listening to their messages in our chart is one of life's many amazing tools to help us find our way home.

How to 'turn it around'

Katie uses this technique in the her groundbreaking system, The Work.

From her website:

The Work is a simple yet powerful process of inquiry that teaches you to identify and question the thoughts that cause all the suffering in the world. It's a way to understand what's hurting you, and to address the cause of your problems with clarity.

As you become aware that you're expressing one or more of your Sun sign's negative personality traits there is a path to reversing the pattern of negativity: focus on at least one of your sign's positive personality traits and in a positive manner begin expressing this.

For example, Aquarius may notice she's being unpredictable and can look for ways to immediately be helpful.  Or, Scorpio may become aware that he's been a bit too sarcastic all day and in an effort to turn it around, finds ways to be efficient.  

Focus on the positive in a positive way and you fulfill your zodiacal destiny and ultimately your soul's purpose in this life.

These keywords by astrologer Myrna Lofthus, are short-cuts that will help you quickly assess your behavior so that you can express your highest self.
