What is Astrology
What does your star sign say about you?
Each individual is born with a personal birth chart, which is a map of the heavens for the moment they took their first breath. Some might say the birth chart has the effect of stamping, or imprinting, the energies of the planets and signs on an individual. Each and every one of us has all the planets and luminaries within our Solar System within our charts, but their positions by sign, house, and aspect are individual to each.

What is astrology?
Astrology is the study of the positions and movements within our solar of the celestial bodies and the physical processes on Earth. Though some astrologers work with stars and constellations, western astrologers work with the Sun, the Moon and the planets (including Pluto) within the Solar System. In its broadest sense, it is the search for meaning in the sky. Early evidence for humans making conscious attempts to measure, record, and predict seasonal changes by reference to astronomical cycles, appears as markings on bones and cave walls, which show that lunar cycles were being noted as early as 25,000 years ago.
People often get confused as to what Astrology actually is. According to the daily newspaper Mystics of Horoscopes, we all fall under one of the twelve signs of the zodiac. For those who fall under the sign cancer, each of us under that sign will walk out of the door today and find a new love. We all know that the Daily Horoscope is no more than a bit of fun for entertainment purposes and though it is based upon a general gravity towards that sign, it would be impossible for everyone to have the same day as all the others within that sign.
This however is not astrology. Daily horoscopes have to give a general indication of things happening within the general population, but can never be specific about anything because the daily horoscopes are based solely on the sign that the Sun was in when you were born and so apply to 1/12 of the population.
A true astrology reading is based on the date, time and place of birth, and so is unique to every single person. Many people often forgot the time of their birth or were never told the time, so it’s the astrologer’s job to get it as precise as possible, so in most cases when a time is unknown, he will do what’s known as a noon chart. In addition to the Sun, the sign and house placements of all eight planets and the Moon must be taken into account along with how they connect and interact with each other. An astrologer’s job is to synthesize this vast amount of information and translate it into language that has a practical application in a person’s life.
Misunderstood aspects within astrology
One misunderstood aspect within astrology is that people often believe astrologers are saying the planets out there in space are somehow doing something to affect our lives here on Earth, but it does not work in this way. In astrology, the planets are symbolic of energies that are within us, with each planet relating to a different aspect of our nature. For example, the Moon represents our emotional, feminine, receptive and nurturing side, while Mercury relates to our mind, how we process information and our communication skills, amongst other things. A person’s natal astrology chart can be seen as an energetic map of their psyche. There is a connecting principle between us and the solar system, the psychologist and astrologer Carl Jung called synchronicity, which he explained thus: “whatever is born or done at this particular moment of time has the quality of this moment of time”.
Astrology is not a science, and no scientific study has ever been able to, or will be able to prove astrology, yet it works consistently for individual people and individual readings, so how can this be?
It is not necessary to believe in astrology to be helped by it. Simply be open to the possibility that there is more to it than your daily horoscope telling you that you will go on a romantic date tonight. Maybe once you discover that astrology really can assist you in understanding and resolving longstanding issues and questions within your life, it will enable you to live a happier, and more fulfilling life.
