Astrology Flashback Readings (reassessing your past with contemporary astro-info) and multi-year astro-planning both have value.
I am beyond thrilled with the new consult offerings – they’re my words but automated and so super-fast 48 hours at-the-max turnaround. Robo-Mystic means I can meet demand and keep costs low for people as we zoom into G.F.F.* (a post on that is coming up shortly btw). In dev: Some funky Love Consults and making these all instant on demand. It is more complicated than you might think, but it is happening.
Your Seven Years Ahead is your transits for – yes – the next seven years, and it is a perfect aid in mission creation. I used mine as the basis to create a Situation Room and draw vast, indecipherable to normal people mind maps on a giant whiteboard. But I have Mars in Virgo, so that’s our version of leisure. Flashback is when you choose a significant 12-month phase of your life – like the year of a divorce or when you moved country – and read up on what was going on to improve understanding. It’s like Astro-Therapy and it also informs your understanding of the present.
Flashback Is LIke Astro-Therapy
Because you can recall so exquisitely what was going on at a certain point, realizing that it was (for example) Pluto Square Your Moon, you get an aha moment. Via Flashback, I better understood my year of wine witching – anything bottle with a goddess or a bird on the label and obsessively listening to Maria Callas. The stream of consciousness severely shit-house poetry. Taking my Love Zombie practice from being an occasional side-hustle to turning pro with it. Crying over Jungian mythology books. It was Neptune Central.
It was also weirdly satisfying to see that I met every single significant person in my life during an Outer Planet aspect exact to the South Node. Flashback is written in the past tense to aid insight.
Astrology Flashback Examples
Neptune Opposition Saturn
Neptune introduced a new chord to your familiar Saturn tune and, consequently, a more harmonious you. It dissolved self-protective barriers, erected long ago for reasons valid at the time. This transit had the feeling of a rigid position on something softening and becoming more fluid. It could have reflected the psychic shift of becoming a parent. Alternatively, you could have slowly developed a spiritually significant relationship. Possibility? You emerged from a time of stress with a new set of beliefs.
Pluto Conjunct Neptune
Pluto conjunct Neptune is the classic mid-20s crisis. It was a strip-down of delusions and naivety, which could have felt quite raw until you adjusted. Your super-young adulthood done with and sniffing Saturn Return on the breeze, you integrated some challenging life experiences, replacing flimsy fantasy ideals with hard-won Plutonic authenticity. It could have come with a painful lesson or two about human nature and romance. Or the intersection of your talents/ambitions with a broader economy and society in hyper-flux. You prevailed, of course.
Pluto-Moon Trines Are A Gentle, Yin Catharsis
Pluto Trine Moon
Pluto Trine Moon was the transit that inspired Georgia O’Keeffe’s desert move, a cathartic decision which initiated a spiritual and creative renaissance. This transit was when you were better able to interpret and act upon the language of your psyche. If you desired a new habitat, you were able to exert Pluto-hyped strength of will to attain it.
Both consults are useful in different ways. The weird thing is that it is predominantly Earth and Air signs ordering the Seven Years ahead and Fire + Water signs doing the Astrology Flashback Readings.
