From the vantage point of Ho’opnopono, then, to read a natal chart is to read old data, and to perceive it as real and to empower it to act. So, the responsibility of the astrologer is immense even in reading a chart and consulting a client with it.

Read the chart at zero!

A client reached out to me this morning requesting a horoscope, in order to address a recondite matter. I wasn’t taking calls at the time, because of the early hour, and I had trusted that the person would leave a message. At the moment of hearing the last ring, I was engaged in running a certain tract of my inner talking that I learned from my study of Ho’oponopono: “I love you, I apologize, please forgive me, thank you.” I was reminded of the sentiment that: “Each pure thought creates an apparent zone of light in space.” (Infinity II 1930, 215.)

As part of the teaching of Ho’oponopono (to make right) working on whatever is going on in me first, is part of my service and effectiveness as an astrologer, even before I meet a client, or even before they call. My practice of this simple gesture of “I love you, I apologize, please forgive me, thank you,” is with me when I am rendering a horoscope and interpreting it. This is what I do in my work, well before I am discussing the chart with my client. This is crucial, because of he ease at which one can see an aspect, involving a conjunction of Saturn, Pluto and the Moon, in the house of the home (4th House) for example and assume the worst, without remembering the effect that that thought may have on the client.

Is the teaching of Ho’oponopono [taking conscious responsibility for whatever is in one’s world]new? Except for the fact that the name is new to most people and the newness of the outer garments that this ancient practice wears today. One of the foremost exponents of this wonderful teaching, Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len, said during a class that the principles of Ho’oponopono, originally came from another galaxy and I believe this. Recently, the ascended masters have also said that this is a high teaching; so I accept that the simple introduction in modern times, of the practice of taking responsibility for oneself and going to one’s Source, in love, to transmute whatever is acting, is a valuable contribution by Dr, Len and Dr. Joe Vitale, through their book: Zero Limits

The mass of people can all get this and use it, without the seeming encumbrances of dense and weighty spiritual teachings, which are valid and true in themselves, yet pose difficulties for people that are new to higher truths. With Ho’oponopono you can begin to immediately gain access to the transformation potential, of your own life and it will prepare the way for you to explore other related teachings, like those presented by Echart Tolle, Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov and other living expressions of light. I feel that in time to come this practice will be a major part of the New Astrologer’s spiritual tool-kit.

Earlier, I had asked, rhetorically, whether the principle of looking at oneself for whatever is the cause of a condition, whether of oneself, one’s clients or even what is happening across the Earth, was new. Well, in The I AM Discourses by The Great Divine Director, given at Miami, Florida, on 27 November, 1937, the master said “Look at yourself and see what is wrong…Dear people there is not a thing the matter, except what is the matter with yourself! Just get that! and hold it forever!” Though there are thousands of sentiments related to this theme, in this and other books, inspired by great teachers of light, here is one more from The Great Divine Director: “I say again, do not keep looking at the other person’s faults, but look at yours and see what is the matter with you!”

The great teacher and initiate, Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov had given talks about “loving one’s darkness” in order to transform it. Some of the best work that astrologers can do for their clients may be contained in this practice of loving their darkness, which is a type of energy, which can bring even greater crystal clarity, and, by reflection, draw helpfulness to the client and light, to the consultation-session.

Integrating the practice of astrology with the spiritual practice, of Ho’oponopono, is a way to expand the benefits that astrology can offer to a person. This practice echoes the wisdom of Paracelsus who said that Heaven is man, and man is heaven, and all men together are one heaven, and heaven is nothing but one man. That, all is one, is why this practice of saying in one’s self talk: “I love you, I apologize, please forgive me, thank you,” are an important key to the use of astrology in the helping profession. In the book “Esoteric Astrology,” by Alice A. Bailey, who was the Amanuensis for the master Djwal Kul, the master said that the vital body of man is part of the vital body of the whole of humanity; and that humanity is part of the vital body of Earth, which is part of the vital body of all of the planets, and which is therefore one with the vital body of the Sun or solar system. How powerful then, is what we create, through our thought and feeling, word and deed and how far can these go to inculcate light in our client’s world.

The teaching on the oneness of all things, is now brought up to date in El Morya’s book Advanced Studies of the Human Aura, How to Charge your Energy Field with Light and Spiritual Radiance, which was published by Meru Press especially in Chapter 37 called The Solar System, The Aura of Earth and your Aura.

If we take the words of Kahlil Gibran, in The Prophet, where he says that: “Your hours are wings that beat through space, from self to self,” then we can guess how our every word, silently thought can influence the whole, beginning with ourselves. This fact of our oneness with all life can be extended further, as you know and so we, who employ astrology, as a type of spiritual navigation technology, can be of inestimable benefit to our clients, by continually working on ourselves. If one looks Ho’oponopono in the eye, then every client that is served, through astrology, offers one the opportunity to purify self, by allowing one to see into oneself and as one understands the general conditions of a client, through the chart and loving that part of oneself, which has come to the surface; there is an opportunity to become more free within self and because all is one, the client also gets the benefits of presence.
