The astrological chart encapsulates the soul’s entering into incarnation; it is a map of the psyche, describing characteristics, behaviour patterns, aspirations, and many more. It contains the positions of the well-known celestial bodies at birth, both visible and invisible, and can be read in many ways, depending on the various astrological schools, most of which agree upon the basics pretty much the same way. The visible layers of the birth chart – signs, planets, houses, angles, and aspects – convey the general delineation potentials; however, there exists a hidden karmic layer as well, which is not immediately visible. The objects of the two celestial belts, the Asteroid Belt and the Kuiper Belt, as well as the fixed stars convey this hidden layer. They tell us the stories that can help understand the better-known karmic triggers represented by retrograde personal planets, out of bounds planets, difficult configurations (like Yods, Boomerangs, Fixed T Squares, Grand Crosses), the placement of the nodal axis, or prenatal eclipses. Uncovering this hidden layer and understanding its karmic connotations can be difficult but is also a lot of fun.
Zsuzsanna Griga has been practicing karmic astrology for 25 years. She teaches and works with clients in Budapest and in London. In Budapest she opened a healing centre in 2000, and also manages Clear Brook College of Parapsychology since 2003. She has named her astrological concept “Transcendental Karmic Astrology” as it uncovers the hidden karmic layers of the natal chart with the help of the asteroids, Trans-Neptunians, and fixed stars. The discovery and naming of the new celestial objects, the dwellers of the Asteroid Belt and the Kuiper Belt, is an ongoing process; as soon as another one is spotted and named mankind becomes aware of its workings. When you name something you give it a destiny, which will reflect back to you – a well-known psychological fact. Why is it important to uncover the hidden layers of a birth chart, you may wonder. Because the past influences the present, and by bringing it to the surface, by understanding and tackling it, the present incarnation can become a better, happier, healthier one. As a karmic astrologer, this is Zsuzsanna’s creed.
