I love how the astrology community exchanges information with each other. The Vedic astrologers interpret the sky differently from the Western astrologers, and somehow that information comes together and forms new insights, opinions, and realizations.
Astrology is based on ancient knowledge of the sky and the stars. Thousands of years of tradition are handed down through many generations in script, stories, practices, and rituals.
And yet, in Human Design, it seems that there's this black and white thing going on, even though the synthesis is made of four ancient modalities.
Why is that?
It's either this or that, one says. And my inner rebel goes: "Why?"
Ra Uru Hu wrote his own I'Ching, and there's no mistake in interpreting it. And if you make that mistake, the traditional community is there to correct you.
And my inner rebel goes: "Try me!"
I tend to honor ancient wisdom instead. Somehow, there's beauty in the interpretation because it allows you to find your own unique language with that, to put your gifts to work, serving the world in your own unique way.
I do not know how to read ancient Chinese. I don't know how to read Sanskrit, Assyrian, or Hebrew.
And yet, I use that ancient wisdom by interpreting what I can read and understand, mainly through what other people could read and understand (and therefore, get translated).
It is not as black and white as Ra Uru Hu may have wanted it to be. He seemed to be very much invested in getting the details right, in structuring things in a way that made sense to him. And over time, the approach seemed to have become very rigid and dogmatic.
Any system that doesn't allow you to develop your own language, your own understandings, and your own interpretations isn't a helpful system but a system that gets you trapped. The nature of all things is mutative, not rigid.
So, by all means, take from my approach, my language, my interpretation, what resonates with you to find your own approach, language, and interpretation. Who am I to say that my approach is THE approach? That my language is THE language?
We're all here to bring in different things, our unique talents, and gifts. I can only honor that and hope that it serves the world somehow. There's room in this world for everyone. So, let's end that old-paradigm competition and support each other instead.
