Cosmic Navigator

Cosmic Navigator: Design Your Destiny With Astrology and Kabbalah by Gahl Eden Sasson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This was the funnest, cheapest therapy I have had in a long time. I did not find Cosmic Navigator, it found me, and I am glad it did. The bulk of the book is the 12 chapters dedicated to a twelve-week process of giving one week to each of the twelve signs by embodying and acting out that sign.

At first this idea seemed very daunting. Twelve weeks! Acting?! I threw up a lot of resistance initially. I could not imagine staying in character for a whole week while attending to my job and other daily responsibilities. I am not an “actress” type. But that was just my initial doubt and resistance. Once I put away the idea of having to do it perfectly, and just began the journey, I found my own way and settled into what activities I could manage to do each week authentically without really feeling like “acting.”

Despite my initial doubts, I completed the twelve-week process of embodying each of the twelve signs of the zodiac. As weeks progressed I found myself fully engaged and looking forward to what each sign would reveal. I found the synchronicities totally fascinating. You just can’t make this stuff up! For example, on the week that I was in the sign of Sagittarius I took a motorcycle trip with my husband. (Sagittarius is associated with long distance travel and bit of risk-taking adventuring.) There is no way I could have planned that event to coincide when I started the book, it just happened to be on the same week. Additionally, we attended a star party while on the trip and for the first time I witnessed the constellation of Sagittarius which not normally visible where I live. In the week of Capricorn I had my annual performance review at work. (Capricorn is associated with Career/status and responsibility.) There were many more such synchronistic events that occurred for each sign that I experienced throughout this process. It was full of surprises and a lot of fun!

I highly recommend this book and Sasson’s process to anyone who is already at least a little familiar with their chart and astrology, but who also wants a deeper foray into the nuances of what it means to have a certain sign in a certain house. Like anything, you get out what you put in.

For each week/sign Sasson gives a menu of possible assignments, recommended activities you can do to help you connect to that sign, recommended movies, colors to wear, and more so that you can embody the sign and steep yourself in the archetype for that week. What I found is that you don’t have to do it all, just do what you want to and what you can. What resulted for me in doing this were some new revelations about what makes me tick and how to best honor and care for myself.

I have recommended this book to my astrology-fluent friends and they are also enjoying it immensely and reporting to me some of their synchronicity with it. I imagine keeping this book accessible to return to whenever I may need to reconnect with the archetypes of a particular sign, especially in regards to the lists of recommended activities or “homework.” These were particularly unique and helpful compilations to gain access points to self-awareness in that house.

This is a little like “where your attention goes, your energy flows,” it is invaluable in the sense that if you find you need to spend more time on a problematic area, you could just circle back to that list of activities and spend more time doing the exercises suggested to help you work through the issues related to that house/sign.

I highly recommend this book as a self-led workshop into understanding the your internal dynamics, and the dynamics of your chart.
