Hello everyone! Welcome back to Awakening Aphrodite for another insightful & fascinating episode with my beloved repeat guest, Fatima-Zahra! Fatima-Zahra is a holistic astrologer with a unique perspective on the zodiac that includes ancient symbolism, archetypes and a deep understanding of the divine polarities. If you haven’t heard our last episode together and you resonate with this conversation, please check out Episode 85, the Power and Significance of Esoteric Symbols, Sacred Geometry and Biogeometry.
Did you know that the planets and stars each represent one side of the great Masculine-Feminine duality? That’s right… the signs within your personal zodiac are considered to be either “male” or “female,” a dynamic that may affect you in ways you’ve never considered before!
In this episode, Fatima-Zahra explains how the duality concept is not necessarily sexual or gender-based. I too believe that everything and everyone holds aspects of both masculine and feminine archetypes, and that it is up to us to have the wisdom and discretion to know when to access those different energies within us all.
Fatima-Zahra and I talk at length about the symbolism and significance of the sun and moon as they represent the dualities within us all. The moon is a reflective, intuitive force that astrologically symbolizes our authenticity, creativity and divine feminine. This is why, according to Fatima-Zahra, we should not overly identify with our sun sign, despite what mainstream zodiac culture would have you believe. Fatima-Zahra also speaks about Black Moon Lilith, an astrological aspect that I’ve personally never heard of! She explains how this ancient, powerful and dark feminine force plays out in the astrological plane, influencing the side of ourselves that many prefer to keep hidden. Here’s the truth: ALL of who you are uniquely makes you YOU, and we must learn to accept and holistically incorporate our shadow to lead a balanced, authentic and joyful life.
And how about men? What do men need to know about the role of the moon in their life? We talk about the importance of self care, safety and acceptance for men, and Fatims-Zahra shares some astrologically-informed advice on supporting the moon-side of the men in your life. Ultimately, there’s more that unites us than divides us, and nowadays it is more clear than EVER that we must all tap into our divine feminine to restore balance, support each other and inspire authenticity by unapologetically living in our truth.
