Nurture yourself and live your potential with this practical and accessible guide to your unique blend of fire, earth, air, and water from goop's resident psychological astrologer
“Jennifer Freed is one of my favorite spiritual teachers.”—GLENNON DOYLE
“Dr. Jen provides a clear map to realizing your innate gifts and how to best share them with the world.”—MILA KUNIS
There are four elements—fire, earth, air, and water—that exist in nature and within us all. Knowing your personal map of these four elements offers a way to personalize your self-care rituals and design your best life: one that fully expresses your special gifts.
With a PhD in psychology in addition to her expertise as an astrologer, Dr. Jennifer Freed is here to show you to how to decode and tap into your gifts in this practical guide to life. She explains how your astrological birth chart can point you to the life you want and offers self-assessments to pinpoint your most effective strategies. A Map to Your Soul offers practical exercises for topics ranging from communication styles to creativity, home styles to psychic development, health habits to belief systems. Some of the advice is as simple as the color scheme that will make you feel most at peace in your bedroom. Other advice is as nuanced as how to better listen to your loved ones and how to fulfill your soul’s purpose.
To get a sense of how the four elements manifest for you, think of a time when you felt:
• Mentally clear: that's air
• Grounded and centered: that's earth
• Flowing and feeling: that's water
• Creative and Dynamic: that's fire
Written with the beginner in mind but offering insight to the experienced student of astrology, A Map to Your Soul is a 12-part journey through the way the elements express themselves in your life. By balancing and supporting the elements within us, we can finally truly flourish.
In this extensive if overstuffed manual, Freed (Use Your Planets Wisely), a self-described psychological astrologer, explains how astrology can improve one's life. She outlines a "twelve-part journey into making your most exciting possibilities a reality" using an approach she calls psychological astrology, though it's unclear how its goal of opening an "evocative and inspiring inquiry into all your divine possibilities" differs from traditional astrology. Drawing on the 12 astrological houses, she explores 12 "areas of life," including self-awareness, partnership, and reputation. She explains how astrology influences communication skills and notes that earth signs tend to provide advice while air signs tend to distract interlocutors instead of "deeply listening." Core beliefs comprise the ninth "area," and Freed posits that because fire signs are restless and creative, they have an easy time updating beliefs. Exercises detail how to manifest outcomes through gratitude and intent, and develop creativity by scheduling time to practice art. This has a lot of moving parts—from the 12 "areas" and four elements to the psychological advice and exercises—while some readers may find the variety generous, others might be overwhelmed. Still, die-hard astrology readers will enjoy this bountiful offering.
