Podcast Episode Summary
Vanessa shares a lot of thinking and philosophy weaving astrology, philosophy, art, and history into one. She asks us all to bring sacred and spiritual back into our businesses and our exchanges. And, she discusses how we can use astrology to do just that.
- “We wouldn’t force people to do work out of necessity because they have to do the job. [People] would notice kids’ natural talents … and give all the resources … so [people] can do the thing they enjoy.”
- “In astrology we have something that says, ‘When you were born, you were the answer to a question at the time.’ Your configuration has a clue as to what you’re here to do.”
- “How can we heal capitalism from its virus that’s attacked the system and taken over like a mutant?”
- The temple for the Oracle of Delphi read both, “Know Thyself,” and, “Nothing in Excess.”
- “I would like to bring spirit back into business.”
- “I would like to bring beauty back into commerce.”
