⁣I confess. I can't read a book in a normal way. Often I’ll just HAVE to start checking the writer’s birth chart. No exception for John Steinbeck: a few pages in I HAD to check his birth chart.⁣ ⁣ John Steinbeck is a famous travel writer and also worked as a war correspondent. Looking in a birth chart will give you a very clear helicopter view of life. What I love about it is that you can look far ahead in the future AND really explain and see pain points (and how to deal with them/clear it), opportunities and what directions to best take. ⁣ ⁣ In short it’s like your missing life manual. Feel lost? Check your chart! ⁣ ⁣ Now here's the thing with Steinbeck his chart: there's no obvious first indicators that this is a writer's chart. Nor does he have huge 'travel indicators'. In fact, looking at purpose would even show the direction of "being home", being busy with heritage, family and more than he did. He chose the spotlights and travel though. There’s two important PURPOSE points in everyone’s chart. You can see it as “chosen lessons” for this life. The idea is that you’ll start moving into that newly set direction. Usually this will happen more after your teen years and in adulthood. ⁣ ⁣ One point shows what’s comfortable to you and will feel natural. It’s “old” though. You’ve collected these gifts and you want to start moving forward. I must highlight that there’s NO SUCH THING as only bring here for ONE purpose. There’s many gifts and talents in your chart that you can choose to develop. All your interactions always matter and by being you you already ARE changing status quo. If you want to follow anything in life: flow your bliss. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Astrology chart John Steinbeck⁣ ⁣ ⁣ With Steinbeck that’s an interesting one: with no planets in the 3rd house which are excellent for writers and only 1 in the 5th he starts look like the Bliss follower. However, he does have his path of fortune (area of success) in the 9th house (which relates to publishing). Also a Leo ASC is good for creative expression. I actually found a full page in Travels with Charley in which he describes his looks and his clothes: very LEO rising. ⁣ >continue reading on the blog. Link in profile
