Kerry’s Top Tips

 

  • Whilst most people know their sun sign (aka star sign), many aren’t aware of their moon and rising signs. Knowing all three is an essential first step in discovering your astrological personality.
  • When it comes to the stars and your money mindset your birth chart can reveal not only your attitude towards money, but also how you prefer to organise your finances, what you love to splash the cash on, your potential money blocks and much more!
  • Planning a new money making endeavour or business? Starting your project on or just after the new moon will give it added energetic oomph!

Julie
So good morning everybody, and I’m delighted today to be joined by Kerry Brind who is an astrologer, and a certified moonologist as well which is absolutely awesome. Today I’m really lucky because Kerry’s actually done my astrological chart, and she’s going to be explaining, using my chart, about how astrology can really reveal your money mindset and help bring more abundance into your life. So I’ve got my chart in front of me Kerry, it’s looking really complicated, so I’m going to hand over to you for you to tell us what it all means and I’m just really excited to hear this.

 

Kerry
Good morning, Julie, I am really really excited to be here. I think when you first see your astrological chart or your birth chart and you see all these crazy little symbols on this crazy looking kind of cheese board of a print out or pie chart, it can look really really confusing. I’m almost really glad you said that though because I think, not so much nowadays, but there’s still kind of a lingering idea of astrology, as being about fortune tellers or mystic Meg handing out horoscopes in the Sun newspaper.

Astrology is not what we think it is, I mean often if you think newspaper horoscopes, they don’t go into much detail and when they do, they don’t really make much sense anyway. But a lot of people can be put off, and a lot of people when I first come to them are like, oh, astrology, that’s just all made up. Then when I’ve spoken to them for about 10 or 15 minutes, often people are like, oh, I never knew that and oh my god, how do you know that about me? People kind of get converted really quickly because it’s so interesting.

So modern astrology, we’ve moved away from these kind of prescriptive cookie cutter details. And when you delve deeper into astrology you find not only do you have all 12 signs of the zodiac in your birth chart but you also have an assortment of planets, comets and then really important things like aspects, angles, all that sort of thing so you can see it all in front of you and obviously it doesn’t make much sense because its all in the form of what we call glyphs or kind of logos that represent them.

 

Julie
There is definitely lots of symbols on this.

 

Kerry
Definitely but I just think if you can kind of learn to understand this birth chart, or if you can find an astrologer to explain it for you.

 

Julie
Thank goodness I found you Kerry!

 

Kerry
You can get a really deep and fascinating insight into your personality, what you love, what you don’t love, what you enjoy, what you don’t enjoy. There are so many different things that you draw into your life that you’re scared of. So, so many different aspects it’s almost like a cosmic life coach, it really is. So we all have this fantastic roadmap which is what you have got in front of you. It’s this astrological roadmap that was created at the moment of your birth, and if we can understand certain parts of it, I can hopefully tell you, or guide you or support you in making decisions in this case to do with your money mindset, helping you to understand why you think certain ways about money. Why you act certain ways, whether you are destined to draw money easily toward you or whether you’re gonna have to work a bit harder for it, how you can draw more money into your life so you know, are you destined to make money by travelling, are you destined to make money by teaching, it can reveal that sort of thing. And it also reveals as well what your blocks are, what are your fears around money, what is standing in your way of making more money?

 

Julie
Well I’m really intrigued to see how I come out on this one so I’m hoping money through travel sounds like a fabulous thing!

 

Kerry
Absolutely, and I tell you what Julie, reading your chart and going through it was nothing short of almost an astrological affirming experience because I was going through and obviously I know a little bit about you already. I was just like, oh my god this just basically is proof to me that it definitely works so obviously if there are people listening in, that know Julie, I think you’re going to be really excited about this and hopefully we’re gonna get lots of oohs and ahhs.

Let’s start with what I call the big three. Okay, so I mentioned of course that we have all 12 zodiac signs in our chart, we’ve got a really really big three. Now horoscopes are often made using our sun sign, that’s kind of like the outer personality, it’s all about our passion, our purpose and our will. Okay, so you already know your sun sign, and it is Aquarius. You have quite an aquarium personality, you know you’re very spontaneous, you’re quite forward thinking. You’re an air sign so you’re quite intellectual, I think you come across as quite logical, but you’re also capable of imaginative and creative thinking. Aquarius is also really really concerned with social and humanitarian causes so you want to help people, you want to help the world, and you want to kind of feel that there is some purpose to your life, how are we sounding so far?

 

Julie
That sounds pretty much spot on!

 

Kerry
Okay. Brilliant. But of course with every Yang, there is a Yin, so then we have your moon side, which is your inner personality, your moon sign is all about your emotions, your inner world, how you feel about it on the inside. Now I was quite surprised at your moon sign, because it is Scorpio. So if you look at your chart on there you’ll see a little moon symbol. That’s basically showing that your moon sign is in Scorpio, so yeah if you look at the top, around the outside are all the signs of the zodiac there as glyphs. Unfortunately I couldn’t write them in, but yes your moon sign is Scorpio, now Scorpio have very deep watery feelings, high emotions, very very strong willed, and also sensual – ooh la la!, which can obviously mean sexual but it also can also mean that you feel a lot of emotion, but you don’t necessarily show it. You maybe keep emotions locked up, you keep emotions deep down inside, and you only reveal those emotions to people who are very close to you, who you can trust. You can be very wilful, so you’ve got the wilfulness of Aquarius and the wilfulness of Scorpio so very wilful, perhaps even to the point where we get stubborn.

 

Julie
I don’t know what you mean Kerry! No, no, I can be stubborn.

 

Kerry
You like to be in charge basically.

 

Julie
Oh I am a complete control freak!

 

Kerry
So Scorpio again, you are very deep thinking which can mean, if it goes a bit negative, that you hold a grudge like nobody’s business. If you wrong a Scorpio, you can literally be paying for it over years and years and years and years, so the only thing I would take away from this is don’t hold grudges Julie, never hold grudges, just move on let it go! There are positive and negative aspects to every part of the personality.

So we’ve got your outer personality and your inner personality and then we’ve got the third of the big three which is what we call your rising sign or your ascendant. Now this is the sign that was on the horizon or just coming over the horizon at the time of your birth. It’s really, really important, because it is the closest sign to you as a person, so often I would say to people, find out what your rising sign is and don’t read your sun sign horoscope read your rising sign horoscope.

Let’s just say that your sun sign and your moon sign are kind of parts of your personality, your rising sign is the big bowl that holds them all together. It is how you come across in the world, how perhaps people see you. Your rising sign is… dramatic pause…. Leo. Ruled by the sun. Absolutely, represents you’re proud and you’re powerful, you lead from the front, you’re warm and welcoming, but you’re also very magnanimous, you protect your pride, you protect those who love, you quite fancy stepping into the spotlight every now and then. But then you’ve got that Scorpio side of you that’s like no no no no no. So, you may sometimes feel a bit of a pull between the two your Leo side is like come on, let’s do this let’s take our place in the sun, and your Scorpio side is like, no I don’t like people.

 

Julie
That is probably more accurate that you imagine!

 

Kerry
So you may sometimes feel that pull in either direction. Alright so that’s your big three, welcome to your big three. You are an Aquarius, Scorpio, Leo. All right, so that’s kind of like the basis for you, the basis for Julie. So then we get into the kind of money mindset part of your chart. Now there are a couple of things we’re looking at here, if you look at your birth chart you’ll see it’s divided into 12 slices. These are the 12 houses of astrology, the 12 astrological houses, and each of them rules a different part of our lives, for example house one is all about the self, it’s about our personality, the way we look, the way we act, it’s all about the self, whereas house 12 is all about our fears, our deepest parts of our personality, they all represent different parts.

Now for the money mindset, we’re looking at two houses in particular, house two, which rules cash, property possessions, material wealth, and what you value in life. And we’ll also be looking at house eight, which is joint finances, business and risk, big capital gains, money, all that sort of thing. Okay, so that’s the first few things we’re looking at. We’re also gonna be looking at planets, particularly the planet Venus, because Venus rules love and money, sex and money basically not only who we love also what we love. And then we’re going to be looking at the north and south nodes. Now they look like two little cups, you will see that your north node is in the third house, and then your south node if you look up should be just opposite I believe in the ninth house. So you see two little cups, a little round kind of rim lips. Okay, so your south node represents your comfort and your karma. The north node represents your growth and true happiness and the idea is we move from our south node towards our north node. Okay, so are you ready to dig in? How are you feeling so far?

 

Julie
Yeah, I’m fine, I’m prepared.

 

Kerry
Okay here we go. Brilliant. Okay, so you look at your second house, now you read an astrological chart counterclockwise. So we go the opposite way. So if you look at your second house, there’s nothing there. There’s absolutely nothing there.

 

Julie
I just don’t care about material wealth at all then?

 

Kerry
That’s not the case at all. What it means is you are super focused when it comes to material wealth, there’s no distractions there, there’s no anything, there is just that sign, and that sign is Libra. Okay, so Libra rules your second house which means you take a really balanced approach to everything, especially the bank balance, the bank balance needs to be balanced. You’re confident, resourceful and clever and Librans especially in the second house, they can fulfil their financial plans best when they’re doing something they’re really really personally passionate and satisfied about, particularly at work also love to help others and this ties in really nicely with your Aquarius sun. You love to get the balance right, and you love to get the balance right between helping yourself, and helping others. That’s quite important to you, you know, I need to have everything I need to feel secure, but I also want to make sure that everybody else has got what they want to be secure.

Librans are very compassionate, they’re very caring. So you take a compassionate, caring view to your money and to everything that surrounds your money. Okay, so when it comes to investing, though one of the downsides of having Libra is sometimes you might get the feeling that you never quite got the balance just right. You’re pretty sure you have, you’re pretty sure but then every now and then you’re just like, this could be a bit more balanced, this could be a bit more balanced, this could be a bit more balanced, so you may find yourself kind of going a little bit overboard, sometimes with that thinking. Okay, so with it as well you can kind of alternate between balance and frugalness and kind of modesty, and then all of a sudden having a massive great big old splurge and completely exaggerated spending, usually on something you absolutely love, so you might live for a month on baked beans, so that you can afford to take an all expenses paid cruise to the Caribbean and live in absolute luxury for two weeks.

 

Julie
It’s what I did when I was younger. I’ve always loved travel and holidays and I had no money, so yeah I would live on beans so I could go on holiday.

 

Kerry
There we go so you take that kind of approach. All right, fantastic. So we’re also going to be looking at house eight. Okay, now again, let me just have a very quick look at your chart I just pulled it up but it’s just gone. Here we go. House eight is also empty. Okay. I think that’s really interesting that both houses to do with finance in your chart are completely empty of all distractions. Except for that one star sign, that one sun sign. And I think that kind of speaks very much to you being very focused when it comes to finances. You like to keep things simple, you work in finance and I just think that’s really, really interesting. And you’ve been successful here which is great.

So your eighth house is ruled by Pisces, so very intuitive. Sometimes you might feel and others probably feel you almost have a bit of a sixth sense when it comes to what’s right with your finances, you just kind of naturally know what to do. This is where I need to invest, this is where I need to put my money. Pisces also has again a very compassionate and caring side to it. It is another water sign. So it also makes you, and actually I am saying this word for word from my astrology software. This makes you an ideal person to take care of other people’s finances.

 

Julie
Excellent, so I’ve basically answered my calling and got it right

 

Kerry
You basically have answered your calling which I think is really really great I mean it’s fantastic. I also took a look just for fun at house 10, which is all about your career, your professional reputation and how you make your mark. And this just kept bringing it on and on and on. Guess which zodiac sign house 10 is ruled by?

 

Julie
I don’t know, another water sign?

 

Kerry
No, it’s ruled by Taurus, which happens to be the sign most concerned with money. A very earthy, very stable has a really, really deep appreciation for the material things in life so this could be 100 handbags, or it could be 100 hours of travel per year you know you’ve got a real appreciation for those things that money enables you to have. You’ve got a gift for making money. Again, you’re very earthy and caring so that compassionate side is coming through but you also love to indulge, you love travel and good food. I’m willing to bet that one of your fabulous fabulous trips would be like, I don’t know, a week out in the mountains walking the trails being in nature, and then ending up in the most luxurious spa resort ever just to put your feet up for a few days.

 

Julie
That sounds pretty good to me, definitely.

 

Kerry
Okay, so finally we come to house 12. House 12 is the house of self sabotage and fear, and this is a really, really important one, especially if ou feel you’ve got money blocks, you’ve got things that are kind of holding you back. So, it’s ruled by Leo your rising sign, which is quite interesting. I think Julie, you probably feel that you need to feel like you’re succeeding. You need to be able to express yourself, but every now and then, you may suffer from insecurity.

So again we’re getting back to this, I’m going to do it, no I’m not, yes I am, maybe I’ll just wait five minutes, no I’m going to do it now. And I think once you step over that precipice, once you kind of get past that self sabotage, once you get past any fears that you have, you will absolutely take your place in that Leo sun, and you will shine and the reason you’re going to shine Julie is because deep down, you want to help others, and not just yourself, and you feel a real need to help the other people around you succeed in the same way as you have, and the way you can do that is sharing your knowledge with them. So I think what you’re doing now with the Money Compass is exactly the right road for that. It’s a really great thing I think you’re exactly on the right path. How are you feeling so far?

 

Julie
That’s really good. That’s really interesting. And yeah, the self sabotage thing, I sometimes have it. I think the thing you were saying earlier on was that I’m quite logical. If I can normally see what I’m doing, I might take a few days or whatever to work out. What am I doing, why am I not going to the next level and it’ll be like I’m just sabotaging myself, and then logically I then work through that in my head, and then I get to the point where I’m like, actually, I’m happy with this decision, because I think sometimes it’s the outcome of the decision that you make, and it’s like what if it doesn’t go right and how do I feel about that so I think it’s a case of making my peace with both outcomes, before I then go ahead so if it fails, it fails, I can move on with that but if I’m not happy with that outcome and it fails what would happen, not in a negative way, but it’s kind of making sure that the balance really of where it sits. How will I feel if things don’t go right? How will I feel if things do go right because sometimes when things go right you get into another situation that you didn’t expect to be in as well. So it’s kind of thinking it through so that definitely really does make sense.

 

Kerry
Absolutely and what you’ve described is very very Piscean, I need to think about how I will feel if it succeeds, and I need to think about how I will feel if it doesn’t succeed, and then put the two in balance so I think you’ve got a really really good kind of combination of Libra and Pisces going on there, and it can be difficult. Pisces loves to overthink things. Libra wants everything to be perfectly balanced and when you’ve got those two things going at each other it can cause real conflict, it really can and it can also cause you to kind of get stuck which of course, causes frustration, you’ve got the Aquarius and Leo sides of your personality thinking no I want to do this, I want to help. And then you’ve got Pisces in Libra going and we must make sure we do it in the right way, and then Pisces going what if it all goes wrong?!

 

Julie
That definitely makes sense when you do things, so I’ve got my new website coming out very soon and it’s just has to be kind of perfect. It just needs to get out there and it’s like I just need to go for it. We can add another page later. I’m at that point where it’s best to just get it out.

 

Kerry
I’m sure your website will be absolutely fantastic. All right, so another thing to point out just about your house is we do actually have a planet here so Saturn is there, right and that actually is quite funny from everything you’ve just said as Saturn is very much about tradition. It’s about playing it safe, it’s about keeping control, it’s quite serious and contemplated. So I think again that harks back to that whole, I really need to think things through. If I’m going to take a risk, is it going to be worth it. If I’m going to change the status quo, I need to know that I’m doing the right thing. So yeah, really, really interesting there, fantastic.

Okay, so let’s have a look at your planet, so we’re looking at the planet Venus. Okay so you, and this is going to make a bit more sense when we get through. Venus for you is in the ninth house, so if you head over to your ninth house you’ll see a little circle and then at the bottom is a straight line, kind of like a little cross coming up underneath it. So that’s where Venus is now. Now obviously Venus stands for what you love, how you draw money in, basically all the good things in life, the enjoyment. So the ninth house happens to rule travel. Excellent. And also study and generally just broadening your horizons. It’s ruled by Aries so very strong, a born leader and a real Trailblazer. I’m willing to bet you booked some trips to places that other people wouldn’t dare to go, or just wouldn’t try to go because it’s too much bloody hassle or money, or stuff like that. So, am I right. Have you been to some crazy faraway places?

 

Julie
I think I’m the only person that I know who’s been to Chernobyl.

 

Kerry
Wow, okay.

 

Julie
Which was absolutely phenomenally amazing, and I have a mission to get to Tristan da Cuhna which is nigh on impossible to get to unless you own your own yacht which I don’t! I don’t have any desire to own a yacht because I’m not that keen on water. I also want to go to the sub Antartica islands of New Zealand as well. So they’re all quite difficult to get to, kind of obscure places. I don’t know many people have been to Mongolia either, I have got one friend who has been to Mongolia. But yeah, so I do like the weird and wonderful.

 

Kerry
Brilliant. Okay, that is the airy side coming out, I love to travel to weird and wonderful places, I am going to go places that nobody else has ever been. I’m going to explore it, and I think that’s just really really great. However, there is just a tiny not flying fly in the ointment but just something to bear in mind. So we come on to the north node, and the south node. Okay, so as I talked about, these are actually really really important when it comes to your money mindset, because your south node, which for you, I believe, is in house nine yep there it is. So it looks like an upside down cup with two little circles on the side. Okay. And then your north node is opposite that in house three. Okay, fantastic. So, the south node represents comfort and karma. It’s where you feel most at home, where you feel easy, things just come very easily to you. And it’s house 9, which is the house of travel and study so we’re here again, travel comes easily to you, you enjoy travel, you feel very very comfortable with travel and with broadening your horizons. Now that’s absolutely great, but also one of the parts of astrology is we start to move from our south node towards our north node.

The North Node is where we need to go to grow, it’s where we need to go to add certain bits to our personality and really expand and take things to the next level. Now that doesn’t mean we need to leave things in our south node behind. It doesn’t mean I’m about to say, Julie, I’m afraid it’s just the end of the line for travel for you. So your north node, which is where you know growth and true happiness. It’s in Libra, in the third house, which also represents short trips so we’ve still got travel in there so great, travel is still there, but it’s also the house of communications. So it says, for me in order to kind of find some real contentment in your life. I think this harks more back to work and kind of what you’re getting on to now. You need to get really clear communication with others. Okay, and feeling that you are confidently and clearly communicating and getting through to people will bring you very much contentment. Using your knowledge in a really practical way to help others and helping people and bringing them together, which I think ties in really really nicely.

So all in all, I would say overall, absolutely brilliant with money. Absolutely brilliant at making money, enjoys the finer things in life so you enjoy the outcomes of that making money, you really do. But you also, you’re not vain, you’re not splashing the cash, you’re not flashy and showing off, you like to be completely modest when you need to. And what I think is really really lovely, is you have this kind of inbuilt need, this really personal need to help others gain the success you have by sharing your knowledge with them and helping them get to the place where you are. So in an astrological nutshell Julie, that’s who I think you are, how have I done?

 

Julie
That was absolutely fantastic, that’s really, really interesting. It clarifies where my life is at without me really realising that I’ve lived the life that I was born to lead, basically, and that’s what I’ve done without knowing that’s what I’m doing.

 

Kerry
You have, I think it’s really really interesting that obviously, all these different parts in your chart have come together really really nicely. And I think what’s really, really nice, is exactly what you said you are already naturally just intuitively, following that path, but the kind of that the stars have said, would be a really really great fit for you. So yeah, so in terms of saying I think you should be doing this. I haven’t incredibly got a huge amount to say, I mean, like I say, I think the biggest thing when we’re talking about money mindsets one of the biggest things is to take into account the self sabotage, these fears and all that sort of thing. This sounds that you’re already very aware of those, and you’re already kind of working through them. So yeah, and what I find, as well is when I speak to other people about their money mindset is often when we talk about the fears that we get, right, this is what I need to do, this is what’s holding me back. So yeah, so really, really interesting, but I see big things on the horizon for you, Julie, I really do.
