Many people have told me before their astrology reading that they have a cursed chart. This comment makes my blood boil! I ask, “Do you mean that your star patterns are arranged in such a way that there is no hope in this lifetime for you to have any joy, love, success, or happiness?” And sometimes a person miserably nods, “Yes that’s it. My astrologer said my chart was cursed.” INFURIATING. First because this situation is NEVER true and secondly because this person had been exposed to a psychic attack.
In the first situation, after reading and studying more than 10,000 charts, I have never seen a totally doomed, hopeless chart. There are difficult charts and we know that some people have very difficult lives. And there are times in a person’s life that their chart reflects planetary stress; during these times a person may feel punished and it is a time of severe testing. All this is true but the planetary stress eventually abates and the life situation can improve.
Gurus from India where astrology is woven into the culture have said that they have purposely reincarnated with extremely challenging charts to illustrate how fortitude and spiritual strength can manage and even triumph under oppressive transits. Not many of us are on the path of spiritual evolution that a guru pursues but the wisdom is important for all of us: your chart always holds the key to better times and experiences.
The second situation in which a person is told that their chart is cursed is more serious. This is a psychic attack. A psychic attack occurs when someone gains entry to your unconscious with or without your permission and you, in a suggestible state, hear something that diminishes your own power. These suggestions can range from “someone has put a curse on you and I can remove it for the fee of (usually, a lot of money).” Or, “in your past life you practiced black magic and now are cursed to live out your punishment.” Or more specifically, “you will marry but the man or woman will die.”
Terrible, terrible manipulation and totally worthless as far as advising a client or interpreting any occult art. And as I mentioned, many times there is a price tag attached to these predictions because only the all-knowing seer can undo the curse. Losing money is not the real problem. The spiritual openness that a person has when he or she is distraught and vulnerable and hears a devastating prediction can lead to a bondage relationship where the person seeks out more and more people to confirm the horror. In this vulnerable state words stick in the subconscious and can become a self-fulling prophesy.
In primitive societies people wore amulets to ward off the evil eye. Today in some countries people wear a blue eye charm to protect themselves; a cross, or star is also a symbol meant to protect the person from unwanted vibrations that sap their strength, courage and joy. To definitely shrug off a psychic attack a person needs self-knowledge and energetic self-love. This will challenge the head space of “they know” and “I don’t.”
Lastly, it is impossible for anyone to put a curse on you if you are truly loved or truly love someone.
I know this because a gypsy told me so.
