“Put your body in motion and your psyche will heal itself.”
Somehow, i got this far without having heard of Gabrielle Roth.
An Aquarius, born right at the start of Pluto in Leo (thus a proto boomer and expressing the best of that generation’s ideals) she was a dancer, musician, shaman, activist, healer.
Sweat your prayers, she said.
“Our soul, our true self, is the most mysterious, essential, and magical dimension of our being. In fact, it is not a separate reality, as traditional Western thought views it, but the cohesive force that unites our body, heart, and mind. It is not a ghost trapped somehow in the physical machinery of our body but the very essence of our being.”
Other than being super Aquarius – electric, kinetic, inventive, original – she was grounded by a multiple Taurus stellium: Ms Roth had the Moon, Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus all in Taurus, sign of the bod, the authentic hippie demi deity and earth diva. Her Venus was in Capricorn, trined by Neptune in Virgo, giving her the true astrological signature of a higher Neptunian.
“Attachment guarantees that you will wake up every morning with a mission: to prove you are who you think you are—today. But it’s a total energy drain. you’re so busy performing a role that you miss out on the freedom to improvise, to be real rather than rehearsed.”
