Lisa Nicholson | Licensed Acupuncturist & Business Owner

The one thing about my industry that outsiders are DEFINITELY unaware of is just how much education it takes to become an acupuncturist. I’ve had so many people ask if I took a weekend class or how similar my education is to a massage therapist (500-1000 hours for a massage therapist in CA).

Many times, this is impeded by their past:  childhood issues, relationship issues, educational issues and karmic issues. All of these issues and many more are reflected in the Astrology chart.  Remember, the planets were situated in this way at the time of birth. This means, of course, some things are definitely fated. Fate, however, is the opportunity; free will is what you do with it. Fate is merely an opportunity to move beyond restrictions. Because humans have been given free will, how we react and handle our fate is completely up to the individual. Read more>>
