Rewiring relationships: Beyond expectations and beliefs
We enter relationships with grand enthusiasm and hope, but sometimes find that they fall far short of the potential we believed they had. Our partners may not live up to expectations, or the relationship itself seems to get stuck at various points. If we can understand the underlying dynamics of our partnerships, we may be able to steer around obstacles and create more joyful and harmonious relationships. We will explore the inner wiring of relationships to become more aware of the choices we make.
Participants will have the opportunity to have their astrology charts (give us your birth date, time, and place when you register) analysed by professional astrologers for relationship potentials and challenges.
Armand’s part: Relationships through another lens
The problems we have in a relationship sometimes don’t come from actual interactions and experiences, but from the assumptions and beliefs about relationships that we carry. Most of us have images of an ideal relationship to which we compare our actual partnerships, and can decide that ‘different’ is ‘worse’ than the ideal. Often, too, each partner has a different underlying belief about what should be, and it can be hard to harmonise these visions. We will explore the parts of the horoscope that tell about relationship ideals and realities, and suggest strategies for working with them constructively.
Faye’s part: The power of balance
Faye will look at the issue of how to balance what you want with the wishes of your partner. How can you be yourself and follow your heart’s desire and still respect your partner’s dreams? Being aware of your own issues around stepping into your power and going for what you want can be very helpful. Are you in a power-struggle? Whose will is stronger? Are you doing what you really love or are you giving up who you really are? We will look at parts of your horoscope to give some insight into how empowerment and will can be developed in relationships.
Zelda’s part: The end of ‘normal’
The tectonic plates of culture are shifting on a planetary and a personal level and many of us are struggling to (re)define ourselves as ‘women’ or as ‘men’ in a changing world. Yet we bring into a relationship all sorts of ideas and assumptions about what is normal – some conscious, some not so conscious. Our relationships may require of us that we let go of some of our most cherished beliefs. What do you need in order to be truly yourself in relationship? And to embrace the other fully.
