for inviting me here to chat about the
0:44
for wood
0:46
star goddess
0:48
which this year
0:50
the dominant feature in the year
0:54
and the four wood star is very much like
0:59
the force of wind
1:02
it’s the messenger it brings messages
1:06
um I know many
1:08
people in the west when they hear about
1:10
Messengers they immediately think about
1:13
Mercury which is an aspect of this but
1:16
the Forward star encompasses much more
1:19
than quote unquote the aspect of the
1:22
planet Mercury
1:25
um because we’re dealing with uh energy
1:29
that is
1:30
ever present Beyond thing aspects of of
1:34
mercury which
1:36
the whole area of wind wind in a lot of
1:40
the Asian traditions of health is viewed
1:44
as a key part of the whole Foundation of
1:48
our bodies
1:50
the Indians speak about it as Prana the
1:53
Chinese speak about it as Chi the
1:56
Japanese is key so these are all like um
1:59
qualities of energy
2:01
for the person who carries the Forward
2:06
star be it as an adult well let me let
2:10
me focus with the child stuff so the a
2:13
person who has a forward child star is
2:16
very much a communicator
2:19
and the sound of the voice of the
2:22
appearance of teachers or friends this
2:26
is the key aspect of where the
2:31
have a sense of opening to someone or
2:34
where they sort of shut down their
2:36
listening because the tone of The Voice
2:40
does not create a good experience in
2:44
their being
2:45
so this is a quality with the four wood
2:48
child star
2:50
and teachers parents Guardians in
2:55
dealing with a child who carries a
2:58
forward child start this is very
3:00
important
3:01
because they can just switch off from
3:04
whatever especially in school where the
3:06
teacher talks to them in a way that is
3:09
Gruff or rough it’s like I don’t like
3:12
that subject I don’t want to do that
3:14
subject and it all has to do with you
3:16
know how the forward child star individ
3:19
you know child is being treated
3:22
anyhow so there’s that aspect generally
3:25
though the the
3:27
influence of like
3:31
um
3:32
I like to use example like a leaf and
3:34
the wind
3:35
and so it’s like the communication
3:38
whatever the stimulus is that that
3:40
surrounds them that comes to them be it
3:44
text message be it
3:47
um somebody speaking to them be it a
3:49
phone call or be it just the environment
3:53
because our environment does speak to us
3:56
it’s like it touches the leaf under Leaf
3:58
immediately moves the leaf doesn’t kind
4:01
of reflect it just goes with the wind to
4:04
the forward
4:05
both on the adult or under child star
4:08
this aspect is the essential part of
4:11
their personality
4:14
the other thing around that is like when
4:16
we look in the world as regards
4:18
personalities Global icons
4:25
who is the best-selling author in the
4:28
world you know I think her books
4:31
somewhere around a billion she’s sold
4:34
her books and translated in all these
4:35
different languages she carries a
4:38
forward child star
4:40
William Shakespeare his adult star is
4:44
for wood
4:47
um in Modern Life the voices of Frank
4:50
Sinatra Aretha Franklin
4:53
Marlon Brando Billy Holiday they are all
4:57
forward adult star individuals and if we
5:01
look at the in the world of modern music
5:04
those formed and and media those four
5:08
names stand out I mean you know even
5:10
people may not remember the film that
5:13
Brando acted in but they still remember
5:15
his voice and um so this is very much
5:19
saying Sinatra I mean you know
5:22
um I you know so
5:24
um those are some individuals
5:27
um
5:28
you know with that forward
5:31
um star as a dominant feature
5:34
as regards um
5:36
the
5:38
people who have fit as a child star
5:42
Jane Fonda
5:45
massive Communicator major source of
5:48
influence in the American culture with
5:51
views with the Vietnam war with Fitness
5:54
with whatever still around
5:56
um Communicator you know incredible
5:59
Communicator Johann Sebastian Bach’s
6:02
music he’s a forward child star and that
6:06
forward child start just that music you
6:09
know for children especially with
6:11
learning or whatever
6:14
very supportive
6:16
um
6:17
so you have nothing cool forward just uh
6:21
Marlene Dietrich for which I’ll star
6:24
Liza Minnelli forward child star Johnny
6:27
Mathis Shuffle with child star Gandhi
6:31
Mahatma Gandhi forward child star Greta
6:35
Garbo forward child star Julie Andrews
6:40
if I’m not mistaken
6:43
um she’s still around but I think in the
6:46
last few years she had some operation
6:47
with her throat and I think she can no
6:50
longer sing
6:51
which is you know that’s kind of quite
6:54
tragic um
6:56
the jazz musician Paul train Four which
7:00
has done anyways so I think the example
7:03
of these people who
7:05
you know once they are in their Zone
7:08
quote unquote with whatever they’re
7:09
doing they touch they touch us globally
7:13
um this is just how that is
7:15
wow Rexes
7:17
thank you for sharing
7:19
my pleasure my pleasure well and I know
7:22
we’re we are we’re putting these
7:23
segments together for our
7:26
our book the child star code
7:29
so this is perfect and I know that part
7:31
of the book is to share elements for
7:33
those who are for wood child star or
7:36
even even if you’re a four wood adult
7:39
star these are
7:40
next bit of our segment is going to be
7:43
how you can support yourself
7:46
with a ritual
7:48
with something that you can engage in
7:50
that’s very simple
7:52
um practical but yet
7:55
transcends transmutes the space
8:00
sure that you’re in so I’m excited I
8:02
can’t wait to see what you have in store
8:03
for us
8:05
sure Cristiano um so okay with the um
8:09
some basic
8:12
um suggestions around before would
8:16
um stop beta Delta child star
8:19
and also just generally for all of us
8:21
this particular year
8:24
um the organ that before would
8:27
star goddess
8:29
has the core connection with is the
8:32
gallbladder
8:33
so
8:35
whatever supports the gallbladder’s
8:38
function will create an alignment or a
8:42
sense of harmony with the energetic
8:45
quality of this particular year which is
8:48
governed by the Forward star goddess
8:53
um so avoiding late night means heavy
8:55
late night meals
8:57
um
8:58
you know the intake of
9:02
um of animal food especially late at
9:05
night is not really suggested it is
9:07
better you know if that is there to have
9:10
it more at lunch time or in the morning
9:14
um
9:14
also like starting your morning with
9:18
some warm water with you know half a
9:20
lemon squeezed into it this can also be
9:23
supportive to that I’m not saying to do
9:25
that every morning but you know it can
9:27
be something supportive especially
9:30
if you know your digestive system is not
9:34
feeling that great when you wake in the
9:36
morning
9:37
um
9:39
but there are also signs of like things
9:43
are creating challenges for you
9:46
energetically in your system
9:49
grinding your teeth at night
9:52
that is a clear indication that your
9:55
relationship with the four would
9:58
star goddess is not a happy one at the
10:00
moment
10:03
um a lot of tension in your jaw this
10:06
again is also like all indicating like
10:10
um the four wood star goddess you’re not
10:12
you’re not in a harmonious dance with
10:15
who
10:17
um tight hips like you know that your
10:19
hips are very tight and feel very
10:21
blocked and locked again that that’s
10:24
another sign of
10:27
um issues
10:29
with lack of good communication with the
10:33
four would
10:34
star goddess so a simple ritual
10:39
um aspects and there are two parts to it
10:42
one is to
10:45
massage your jaw
10:47
so
10:49
but
10:51
in seeing the two aspects there’s
10:53
another aspect to it okay which
10:57
creates a level of amplification
11:01
the space in which you are doing it in
11:06
at some level for you to acknowledge
11:09
that space
11:11
now I know that’s a strange
11:15
sentence to to put it that way
11:18
but to simplify what I mean it’s like if
11:21
this space is very entirety
11:24
tidy it a bit I’m not telling you to get
11:26
into a whole cleaning operation but you
11:29
know
11:30
or
11:32
um if there’s something that is very
11:33
special for you that you have a big
11:36
connection with
11:38
um you could you know bring it into the
11:40
space and place it wherever that you
11:43
like to place it
11:45
um
11:46
so that immediately engages space
11:50
of where you’re doing it
11:53
so you’re starting to take it out of the
11:56
mundane Zone into a more
12:01
Cosmic Dimension and I’m not getting
12:04
into being a space cadet when I say that
12:06
I’m just really being very practical you
12:10
know people who are not even into any of
12:12
the you know esoteric types of things
12:14
they they can immediately feel there’s
12:17
something different in the space
12:19
that takes whatever then you do as the
12:22
ritual
12:23
into opening other pathways
12:27
of
12:29
um a deeper healing process a deeper
12:33
harmonizing quality
12:35
but doing it doing what I’m about to
12:38
show anyhow if you’re doing it
12:41
not you know acknowledging that you’ll
12:44
still get benefits but that’s another
12:46
level of um
12:48
you know really doing it from the heart
12:50
rather than from the head
12:53
doing it from the head izuki but doing
12:55
it from the heart we just amplifies it
12:57
when we start you know acknowledging the
13:00
space where we’re doing it so that
13:03
having been said
13:06
um having a sense of softness in the
13:08
arches of your feet so your feet are on
13:10
the ground
13:12
um you know both of them separate
13:15
a sense of letting go at the back of
13:18
your navel just all in your imagination
13:21
no willpower
13:25
and a sense of relaxed shoulders
13:29
softness in the palm of your hands
13:33
and then just start gently
13:36
to massage your jaw
13:39
you could open your mouth
13:42
slightly just have it a bitter jar
13:47
I’m giving a jaw a fairly firm rub but
13:51
not hard you know you’re not fighting
13:54
with your jaw just
13:58
easing out any tension there
14:04
allowing the softness and the arches of
14:08
your feet to be present
14:10
and that sense of spaciousness at the
14:13
back of your neighbor to also be present
14:17
then I’m going to just go out for what a
14:20
minute as I do it so you know in that
14:23
aspect of Silence there’s also something
14:26
else that kind of
14:28
shifts moves
14:36
ah okay
14:38
then the second aspect about it
14:41
is in the region of your temple
14:45
so when you come like you come to your
14:48
eyes corner of your eyes and you come
14:50
and you move your your middle finger
14:53
back and you sort of come into an area
14:55
in your temple which is like a bit
14:59
like if you kind of just came into a
15:01
Shallow Lake
15:03
so that is a this is a mama Point called
15:07
Shankar
15:09
um this is from The Vedic system and
15:12
this has a big influence on the
15:14
gallbladder on the liver and also on
15:17
your emotional state so if at times you
15:21
know you angry upset whatever or you
15:25
have many swings and your emotions this
15:28
point can be very supportive
15:31
um so again I’ll do it and I’ll allow my
15:36
job to be a bitter jar
15:39
as I do it
15:44
relax shoulders
15:49
softness in the arches of the feet
15:54
spaciousness at the back of your knee
16:00
yeah I I think we’ll see the Rhythm in
16:03
my voice is shifted just with this one
16:09
and then have a sense of giving thanks
16:11
for that
16:13
and yes those are two steps of a ritual
16:18
with the Forward star goddess
16:25
it’s a bit of magic
16:28
what’s that Christiana
16:30
it feels like a bit of magic in my space
16:32
ah okay
16:34
that’s just wonderful I could take that
16:37
with me all day
16:39
yeah your voice is sounds different to
16:42
also
16:43
yes well just when you
16:46
asked us to engage with the space
16:49
of course I’ve some of our listeners may
16:52
never have done that but you use the
16:55
word taking the mundane into the cosmic
16:57
realm and you know I’ve practiced quite
17:01
a lot with engaging space
17:04
and just you saying that it was like an
17:06
immediate
17:08
like my perceptual feel just kind of
17:10
widened
17:11
and I you know could feel further than
17:14
outside of my head outside of my body
17:17
and yes that shift from the mundane and
17:20
amplifying this ritual
17:23
into the cosmic realm that’s hence why I
17:26
feel a little bit of magic
17:28
uh-huh okay it feels nice thank you yeah
17:30
and the thing about it Christiana it’s
17:33
it’s um
17:35
it’s that simple and it’s about just
17:39
cultivating a relatedness about having
17:42
that type of communication which is not
17:44
part of our educational system you know
17:47
none of that is
17:49
you know it’s always this I’m not
17:51
dismissing that I mean you know the
17:53
focus is get that right okay but there’s
17:56
another part too which is you know this
17:59
stuff
18:02
and that’s why we’re here to like engage
18:05
with this stuff the elements right the
18:09
elements that make up this whole Space
18:11
this whole universe that’s that’s why I
18:13
so adore astrology and this particularly
18:17
the nine star key how it engages not
18:21
only this
18:22
correlates with the elements but those
18:25
elements
18:26
move into your body and I the
18:29
gallbladder is the masculine to the
18:31
feminine of the liver yes
18:34
um there are many ways I’ve heard it
18:37
said many ways but the gallbladder on
18:39
the liver you know they have a
18:40
correlation and
18:43
um you know the liver
18:45
do this with the blood and the
18:47
gallbladder deals with bile and the
18:49
digestion and all of that
18:52
um you know it’s on the right side and
18:55
you know the whole thing with the hip
18:58
and all with the side of the body and
19:01
because the Meridian runs all up all
19:03
along the side so in a way
19:07
um which is really about you know
19:10
in our life we really about you know
19:13
we’re looking this way the front and we
19:15
are aware that there’s a back or Loop we
19:17
are not conscious of it but
19:21
I decide it’s really like
19:24
what starts to come into the
19:27
conversation is the decision
19:30
and if one has a practice be it a dancer
19:33
be it martial arts be it a sports person
19:38
you would have cultivated a way
19:42
um with your body to interact with those
19:44
changes and so it’s a it’s an
19:47
instinctive decision that you you
19:50
that then just happens
19:53
um
19:54
but in everyday life for most of us this
19:56
side and that side it’s like you know
20:00
should I or should I you know it’s
20:03
coming indecisive and the gallbladder is
20:06
involved with this aspect and but when
20:08
the gallbladder is Happy the digestive
20:11
system is also happy right and and your
20:14
brain function is is is much easier
20:17
because
20:18
yeah to speak about the Five Element
20:20
system
20:21
you know gallbladder is part of the wood
20:24
energetic system in the body with spring
20:27
and wood governs earth wood digs into
20:30
the Earth so you know the spleen on the
20:33
stomach they have a control over it
20:35
so when the that is happening and then
20:38
you’re thinking is clearer
20:42
um so anyway you know just
20:44
this is just sort of um yeah very simple
20:47
ways of looking at things rather than
20:49
getting
20:51
um
20:51
you know into
20:55
all you know fine details of course
20:57
there are fine details with all kinds of
20:59
things with you know what’s in blood
21:01
bilirubin and this and that and the
21:03
other
21:04
and of course you know it’s good to know
21:06
all those things but also it’s just good
21:07
to have a kind of overview and a simple
21:09
way of engaging with it it was well
21:13
thank you for your nuggets of wisdom
21:16
and I know for those listening in and
21:18

book it’s digital so you can download it
22:35
easy access thank you before we leave
22:39
there’s one there’s one last thing that
22:41
I didn’t mention
22:43
as regards to what is like a virtuous
22:46
action that somebody who carries like
22:49
the four wood child star what is a
22:53
virtuous action that they can do
22:55
that in a way
22:58
um develops a deeper relatedness or
23:01
opens up more Pathways in with the
23:04
relationship
23:06
with the forward
23:09
um star goddess
23:11
right
23:13
whatever is your passion in life write
23:16
about it
23:18
and also when dreams occur write about
23:22
it
23:23
and also it’s wonderful
23:27
um doing a journal it’s not like
23:29
necessarily every day but in some
23:32
periods this
23:33
this would all be virtuous actions that
23:37
will facilitate
23:38
are easier and smoother relatedness with
23:42
the Forward star goddess
