  • We also talk through what your birth chart is and the meaning behind some of the basic terminology found in astrology

Powerful Words from Ashley:

  • “...astrology really is a language, it’s like learning a language. So, even if it doesn’t make sense to you now, you can learn it - just like you do learn a language. And, the language of astrology is planets and zodiac signs in certain houses in our birth chart.”
  • “[your birth chart] is your soul signature…”
  • “...childbirth, for me, also in that womb space brings up a lot of issues or traumas or past hurts that are contained within that space. So during the postpartum period and through the year was a lot of healing work on that mother-part, for myself, so it was taking care of a beautiful little girl but also taking care of myself…”
  • Speaking to generational trauma: “I’m exactly where I’m meant to be right now. And this is the work I’m meant to be doing right now. Because it’s so easy to distract with so many other things... but in reality it’s like you need to do this... it was this feeling of, I want this to stop I do the work now.”
  • Speaking to the shadow: “..that shadow is to show us where things may need to be transformed and reworked and healed so you come out the other side, lighter…”
