Why I have hope for the world, and how to create more meaning and joy in our lives… while solving the big problems of our times.
Transcript of Guide to a New Paradigm: How Astrology Reveals the Way Forward
Hi there! I’m Marina Ormes, the founder of Astrology Heals at astrologyheals.com.
The World Has Problems
Do you ever feel a sense of worry or despair about the state of the world, worry for future generations, or wonder if we will ever be able to solve massive problems like racism and climate change?
Sometimes I do. Today I want to tell you why I feel hopeful about the future, and about a powerful tool that can help us have better lives personally and collectively.
I’ve actually been concerned about these problems my entire life, and as a young adult, I was searching for something that would not just gloss over the truth problems we face, or try to fix them with bandaid solutions.
We Need Deeper Answers
In college, I went from one discipline to another seeking deeper answers. I tried classes in psychology, anthropology, and sociology, and it just didn’t cut it. After college, I though, well, maybe what I am looking for is not an academic path so much as a spiritual one.
So I found a school that used a very spiritual approach to healing—using herbs, and older pagan traditions that honored nature and worked with the seasons, the solstices, and equinoxes.
While this approach felt meaningful to me in many ways, I was still left with a feeling that something was missing.
During my studies at the herbal school, I chanced upon someone teaching astrology. I was definitely a skeptic at that time. In fact, in many ways I still do not consider myself a “believer” in astrology, but that’s another story.
Fortunately, Those Answers Exist
Anyway, long story short, I began studying astrology and my eyes were opened to an entire universe of understanding the deeper source of the problems people had, whether they were health problems, social problems, or anything else.
With astrology, you can see what is happening as a process that is part of a bigger cycle. It brings lessons for us to learn, and ways to stretch ourselves and grow into all that we are capable of.
I now see astrology as a system that anyone can learn to use, that shows the context of what we are experiencing—how what is happening fits with the past and how we are creating the future.
Now, 28 years after I took that first astrology class, I have published two books and a chapter in a holistic nursing anthology, too many blog articles to count, and many more newsletters and updates for participants in my member program. All on the subject of how astrology helps us transform our lives and be active participants in solving our collective problems.
This EBook Will Show You How
If you would like to know more about how and why astrology can help us, I’m so excited to let you know that soon I will be re-releasing an eBook I wrote in 2017 that is called:

The thing I love so much about astrology is that it feeds my mind’s desire to understand things at deeper levels. Astrology is holistic. It is a system that honors both the physical and the spiritual, the mental and the emotional. It provides a multidimensional language that allows us to see and better understand all parts of ourselves, both rational and irrational.
Astrology can even show the bigger karmic and ancestral patterns you are working on healing, and what your specific role is in that work—how you can learn the lessons you are here to learn, and step into a life that is more meaningful, fun, creative, and aligned with your deeper truth.
New Tools to Bring New Solutions
So if you haven’t yet, I really encourage you to learn more about astrology. It is a system that can support us in transforming into who we need to be in order to move forward, heal, and solve the problems our world faces… to create a better life for future generations, free from the mistakes of the past.
