The Stars That Took me to China & Chaoyang Theater Acrobatics

Acrobatics to the Stars!

The stars have a different story for everyone, and mine was ultimately connected with the most unlike of things, the acrobatics show at Chaoyang Theater. This is the very beginning towards my passion to theatre performance, but more about that a little later. What’s interesting is that all the stories are connected to each other. It’s a gratifying feeling to know, that you are part of a whole and not just some loose object in space. Everything has purpose, meaning.. every decision you make in your path is for a purpose. Even if the outcome is negative, positive or anything in between there is a valuable lesson to be learned in it. No matter how you try, every turn is inevitable. Otherwise you would not make that turn. With that in mind, it’s beautiful to think how we still are just doing our own thing. It’s that very combination that has personally led me to some extremely interesting situations in life.. situations that I could not anticipate and ones that surprised me because I had never even thought about them and I still end up doing them.

This manifestation of my horoscope has often come to me in the form of traveling to China. I have already traveled extensively around the world, and for a long time I hardly even went to Asia. I was mostly interested in Europe, South & North America, Australia.. and if I would go to Asia that would probably be just India and Nepal. Some magnificent place to see the stars and meet wise people who know a lot about horoscopes.. but all the rest of the Asia was totally unforgotten. Until one day, I just ended up visiting for a short while.. it was going to be just a short stop over but something happened and I stayed to live there for almost two years. On that very, same trip! I just sometimes had to visit Hong Kong to get a new visa so that I can extend my stay in the Chinese mainland. Those were the times and the country is still very dear to me.

And not just China, but what ended up changing my life for good was the beautiful experience at the Chaoyang Theater venue on my visit to Beijing. This was probably the most unlikely of events to happen in my life, since I never had even the slightes thought about going to see any acrobatics show. Well, as with a lot of stories there was a good Chinese friend who invited me to see it. I thought to myself, that why not and there I went. That was a particularly good day for me.. and that cannot be said about every day in China at all. I was feeling a little excited even, and wondered where this feeling is coming from.. could it be the stars? Surely something was about to teach me a thing or to about life I thought to myself. Well, I went to the show and I ended up loving it. With absolute attention since I could hardly speak throughout the whole acrobatic performance.. there was just something magic in the air at the Chaoyang Theater that was difficult to discribe. Of course, the stunts are amazing.. but that kind of a non-realistic circus-like atmosphere that is actually elegant and made with great Chinese pride. It’s really strange combination of modern performance, and traditional Chinese acts. Many of which almost reached the stars, like the acrobatic performer who was piling two dozen chairs on top of each other, reaching the cealing of the theater building! Oh my god, it was just thrilling and sitting there right in the middle of that fantastic show was too much fun.

And the most amazing is yet to come, because I ended up working for the Chaoyang Theater!! Now can you imagine that.. this was the final tipping point of my story and the ultimate destiny of my daily horoscope on that very precious day.. when the moon was at a favorable position. I got to meet the acrobats every day, and work with them.. helping out with the stage and sometimes even giving suggestions on how to improve the show. And that is not said lightly, since it is really considered as the best acrobatics show in the whole of Beijing.. if not the whole of China. It’s a proud achievement, from both me and the peking acrobats themselves of course.

If you are interested in the show, or perhaps thinking of visiting Beijing some day.. maybe it’s your destiny.. who knows right! Anyway, I highly recommend that you watch the acrobatic show beijing sneak peak video on YouTube to get a glimpse of what’s to come. It won’t show you too much so there aren’t really any spoilers. No matter how many videos you would watch, it’s always going to be a hundred times more amazing than that.

This was the story of my path towards China.. which is one that left an experience for life and continues to live with me. I constantly visit the country and try to invite my Chinese friends.. especially some of the performers (that are unfortunately very busy of course..) to see me here in Minneapolis!

Reflection of The Stars

Water Mirror Reflection

Sometimes I wonder, if the stars are following me or am I following the stars. The answer much lie in somewhere between. That is, between sky and earth where the real action happens. It’s like the stars are looking down upon us, and we are looking up upon them. This creates a reflection on earth, which is called “life”.

In the world we get into trouble when the reflection gets blurry and people get distracted from what is really happening. Usually it’s the mind that is always causing trouble, thinking that others are responsable. But the truth is that all you need it the reflection, to show you the truth. Or better than the truth, it shows you what you really want to do and how to create your own truth. But we are not alone, with the stars we feel like we belong and in harmony one can walk a path of peace and happiness in life.

So often we are looking for answers to our problems without doing anything by ourselves. While the stars may contain the capability of seeing into the past and the future. It is not meant to be used as a mind game of humans. There is a teacher in the sky, who has a clear message to give us all. But one needs to be sensitive enough to pick up that message.. and for that we need to make our mirrors clear.

Reflecting our lives is an everyday occurance, since it is an inevitable part of nature and ourselves. So let’s step up and get connected with it. And the blaming has to stop, the self reflection has to start.

Let’s make this world beautiful, shall we,

When the World Strikes Midnight

Midnight

I have always loved the night time as it brings out special characteristics and a exceptional sensitivity. The reasons behind it, is that most minds are sleeping during this time. In astromony it becomes clear that everything is connected with everything. And it’s not just the planets, but especially what people are doing in this world. Pausing to observe, is something that has been forgotten by many. Astrology however, is something that revives that tradition of going within oneself and pausing to concentrate on something far more important than ordinary daily life.

It can also be said, that people are pretty much creating this world with their minds and their words. As it is often with meditation, it is not easy to shut ones mind to simply look at things from the distance. To help this, the night time extremely useful when peoples mind are shut and you can more freedom in the complex matrix of this world. You can think without having too much influence from others thinking, in fact you have a better opportunity not to think at all.

Some say the night is something magical, something that has special powers. But instead of thinking in this manner, I would say that it brings that something special out that we already have. A simple recognision of our existance that goes a long way to tell us something about the way we are. And exactly that journey is what interests the true astrologist. It’s not about our future, but our current state which holds everything from our past, to our future to why we exist and for what reason.

The encyclopedia of existance strikes at midnight. A true delight of the stars!

Good night everyone,

The Power of the Moon

The Power of the Moon

The moon is a feminine planet, negative, cold as well as moist. It’s one of the biggest close-by influences we have and effects us all on a daily basis. As a feminine power, it symbolises fertility and women who are in the active position of a wife and caretaker of the family. All this, brings good imagination, memory, sensitivity and nobel values. That’s why when it’s full moon, one becomes more sensitive and even men can feel a strong sense of their feminity. After all, each person has both the masculine and feminin sides. Depending on the person, moon will have more or less effect on ones sensitiveness. Some being so sensitive, that they are unable to sleep at night.

What’s interesting is that it’s possible to increase the effect of the moon’s power by doing simple tricks. Such as going to the ocean or near water. By creating things, such as writing or making something with your hands. Basically anything that takes creativity will increase the unity with the rising moon sign. Then combine that with water, and white color clothes you will be able to take the most out of the moon.

That’s why I encourage people to make a kind of a moon ritual, to get in touch with the feminine and bring balance to their being. This ritual can be different for everyone, as long as you engage yourself in the feeling and let yourself go towards the magical powers of the moon.

Let us embrace the moon!

The Stars & Theatre

Beautiful City View of Beijing

I often relate theatre with the movement of the stars. There are many connections between the two, that I can find. Horoscopes are naturally connected with all aspects of life, but the concept of theatre is something close at heart in many deeply profound aspects.

Often I have the opportunity to travel a lot for both vacations and work life. And for me, it is a kind of a quest to go and see at least one theatre production in one country. Especially if it’s something that is connected with the earth or traditions of that place. Now I have had the pleasure to visit the great city of Beijing, as shown in the beautiful picture above. There I have found out, how stars play a huge role in shaping a nation that is beyond ones imaginations. It can only be experienced, and I would not dare to try and look into it’s future and faith. Instead I go with it, observing things that are happening according to the sun and the moon. The greatest powers of the earth are at play here, and in theatre production we can see shining examples that are both profound and majestic at the same time.

While there is lot to tell about, I would like to name one fantastic acrobatic venue, known as the Tiandi Theatre that is located in the middle of the huge energy of the city Beijing. Little I could have imagined, that the performance was filled with the essence of the stars. The experience is of course different for everyone, but according to my horoscope, it’s absolutely necessary to have a deep long lasting impact for me to really enjoy something. It’s interesting, but that’s what the stars are all about for me, theatre.

Another aspect of Chinese acrobatics that always fascinated me, was the challenge of gravity. How the acrobatic feats are so terrifying at times, when people find ways to show that the human body can go against such big forces of nature. Such as gravity, balance and heights that would frighten the life out of most people. But in Beijing, these performers are not afraid. And it is my personal belief and experience, that they are indeed using the great energy that is predominant in the city of Beijing.

Just looking at the huge Tiandi Theatre building, we can see glowing lights high into the sky. Thus it is nearly impossible to miss this building.. gathering tourists from all over the world to witness the Tiandi spectacle.

After seeing the acrobatic show, one feels very much at ease. As if the moon had shined upon you it’s light and now you can be at peace. That effect, which is also known as “shining”, is an aspect of horoscopes that is noticed only by those who are sensitive enough. And the contract is indeed tremendous, of how such a busy city with so many lights, sounds and movement can hold within something very special when sensitive enough. In fact, that is one of the requirements for all the theatre performers in order to create such an amazing and fantastic show. For all I care, this could have been a circus show but it was not. It was a show of amazing skill, the Chinese way. The big way!

If in town, make sure not to miss it. While it’s not the only amazing thing to experience, it should definitely be one on the list of things to do in Beijing. You can also grab online discount tickets from their website (linked above), which convinced most people in the end. The address of the theatre is 10 Dongzhimen South Street, Dongcheng, Beijing, China. I am not sure about the subway stop, but you can find all the necessary information from the Tiandi Theatre Official website. Have fun and play safe, according to the stars! =)

The Power of the Sun

Sunset

In these blog posts, I will be going over a broad range of issues related to horoscopes. Including their effect on every day life. The underlying notion, is that everything is connected. Understanding horoscopes, is connected with understanding our existence and all the different elements that surrounds us. That’s why, simply trying to look into the future is not going to do much. I am going to teach you the secrets to life itself, through the magic of the solar system!

One of my favourite planets has to be the sun. It is the origin of life and perhaps the oldest target of worship because all life depends on it. It’s just magical to think about the massive power Sun has! It’s symbols are life, power, radiation, head, royalty.

But of course everything in the solar system has it’s positive and negative effects. The sun is able to make one confident, organised and exited. With the power of the sun, one is able to give to this world so much things that are beneficial. On the negative side of things, we have emotions like pride, hate, egoism and selfishness. These too are features that are connected with the power of the sun. Because it holds such tremendous energy, it can transform and extend to creations that are no longer desirable in our world.

Those people who are closely connected with the sun usually choose a profesion where they are able to “shine” and do something that they are proud of. It could be a polition, or a boss of a company. But these are sometimes dangerous professions, where finding balance with all that energy is vitally important for a positive outcome.

Aries is the most common star sign, (born between 20 March – 20 April) that holds a strong connection with the sun element. Being aware of this feature in oneself is extremely advisable, since this is perhaps one of the start signs that is more likely to get out of control. Either way, we cannot live without it and sun is what makes us thrive!
