This week's episode is based off of 2 words: HUMAN DESIGN.
No, it's not an anatomy class or a biology lesson. It's all about YOU. Your body, your mind, but most importantly, your AURA and ASTROLOGICAL MAKE-UP.
Okay, still confused? Krista and Lindsey each receive a human design reading from an expert and spiritual goddess, JENNA ZOE. She spends this episode showing off her craft by helping the ladies make life decisions, control their minds, and get in touch with their bodies.
Human Design uses your birth time and place to calculate your personal Human Design chart. In this calculation, the positions of Sun, Moon, and planets at the time of your birth play an important role. Astrology also uses the birth time and place to generate your natal chart, but it interprets the data differently – and Human Design is not astrology. Time to get ANTHROPOMORPHIC (In the words of our lovely guest)!
Human Design calculates two moments in time. Our birth, which determines our conscious definition and a moment approximately 88 days before our birth (exactly 88 degrees of the sun before the moment of our birth), which determines our unconscious definition. The second; the pre-natal calculation is unique and crucial part of the Human Design revelation.
Miss Jenna Zoe also breaks down the 4 TYPES OF HUMAN BEINGS
Definitely a note-taking episode, but an insightful one at that!
