The response to my notice that I am redirecting this column to include astrology and dreams has been overwhelming. Please note that I cannot respond to everyone’s request for me to look at your chart in this column but when I do, I do not include the specific birth info to protect confidentiality. However, I am offering to Vision magazine readers a 20% discount if you would like to experience a one on one personal astrological session. Call my office at 310-890-6832 to schedule it.
Dear Dr. Toni,
My birth date is ______and my mother said my time of birth was 7:20 pm (though she wasn’t very sure) and my place of birth is __________.
I have been having the most vivid, scary dreams lately of being of being chased by someone attempting to murder me. I awake terrified and then turn on the television to avoid going back to sleep. There is always some minor variation in the dreams…either someone I am with (usually a friend or a family member) is being stalked to be killed and I am trying to protect them while running for my own life, or the stalker is out to get me…and I am hiding in houses and running in the dream to avoid my killer.
My life challenge is this. I am nurse. I have been one since 1996 and I have stopped enjoying what I do. I even went back to school to become a NP because I thought my unhappiness dwelt from being stagnant in my role as a RN. But even in this new role, I am ill-tempered, impatient and frustrated with the patients, the staff and medicine as a whole. I am driving my friends nuts with my constant complaining about my jobs (which I have had 4 in past 3 yrs due to my quitting). I have been meditating, visiting gurus, reading esoteric literature and going to spiritual hotspots around the globe all in search of inner peace/nirvana to endure my daily job. What is my unhappiness really stemming from? Can it really just be nursing?
Unhappiness in life’s purpose
The information that looking at your chart gives me is so much greater than if I were to simply be answering your question as a psychotherapist.
You are on the right track in choosing a health related profession. However, you need to be doing something that slows you down. You have a very sensitive nervous system and tend to over react to the environment and others. You need to keep your kidney/adrenal channels well supported. One thing that does this is meditation and eating foods that calm you down like protein, veggies, and whole grains and eliminating caffeine and sugar from your diet.
Your chart also shows that a profession that is more in the energetic healing area could be better for you. A place to begin is to add things like Qi Gong, yoga, or tai chi while you are still working at the job you have so you can move through your day with greater flow.
You are in what is called The Uranus Opposition that occurs between age 40-42 typically. Uranus is the planet of radical change and pushes us to be more authentic to who we really are. The person in your dream who is attempting to murder you is a part of yourself. Sit quietly, go back into the dream and face the murderer. Ask him or her to identify themselves and what is it that they want from you?
I would also suggest spending 20 min a day in a quiet space. After you spend 10 minutes just turning within breathing in and breathing out, visualize yourself in a place in nature that is calming for you. Allow a person to become present who identifies him/herself as a wise spiritual guide. Ask this person to show you a symbol (the unconscious likes to speak to us in symbols) for what your next step is. Then write the question out with your dominant hand. Using your non-dominant hand, write your answer.
You may not get a clear answer right away but don’t give up.
I want to reiterate that you are being called to move from a health profession to a healing profession that focuses on energy healing rather than structural healing that is medication and/or vitamin and herbal supplements oriented.
I also see that it would also be more beneficial to you to be self – employed rather than working for someone else. Teaching or consulting would be great for you. Perhaps begin with enrolling in a health-coaching program and develop an independent practice gradually while still getting a paycheck from your current job. These programs often include teaching how to market your business as well.
