What is Astrology?
Updated: Mar 7
What is Astrology? & What can you find out from your Birth Chart?
This blog post aims to explain what Astrology is & clarify some misconceptions !
Astrology is not Astronomy !
ASTRONOMY is the study of the universe and its contents outside of Earth's atmosphere. Astronomers examine the positions, motions, and properties of celestial objects.
ASTROLOGY attempts to study how those positions, motions, and properties affect people and events on Earth.
ASTROLOGY is the study of the distant cosmic objects and their relationship to human lives.
ASTROLOGY is the correlation between celestial alignment and earthly events. It is not a causation but a correlation. The planets are not causing you to do anything.
Is Astrology a Science?
Science is "the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment”. Science uses trial & experiments to negate what is not truth.
In ASTROLOGY we do not do that, but we are studying the correlation to increase the truth of what we are aware of.
Is Astrology an Art?
Astrology is NOT an art. "Art is the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination.” ASTROLOGY is not an intuitive art expression, such as tarot, palmistry or fortune telling. ASTROLOGY is not a creative expression at all, ASTROLOGY is the study of correlations & patterns.
Is Astrology a religion?
Religion is "the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or Gods”.
No !!!! ASTROLOGY got nothing to do with any of that, Astrology is NOT a belief system, it is a mirroring phenomenal.
Only because we do not understand how and why Astrology works, we do not have to believe that there is a God or Gods in the sky that control us! When the planets are associated/referred with different Gods, it's an archetype energy, is it NOT a literal representation of different Gods.
In summary Astrology is NOT a science, not an art, a religion or work of the devil. Astrology is a system of pattern synthesis.
Astrology is not magic but synchronicity. Which can be seen as magical … 😉
What can you find out about yourself by ordering a Birth Chart?
*** Just to be clear, You will have to discuss this with the person you are ordering your chart from, as different Astrologers, will work differently & may choose to focus on specific areas, some may cover just the basics & others are in depth. It all depends on the person & also what you are seeking.
But to get an idea, the following are few basic things that will help you understand yourself ….
Your Sun sign which most of you will probably know is = your zodiac personality
You rising or also known as the ascendant is = How you look to others
You moon = is your emotions & inner mood
Mercury = the way you think & communicate
Venus = how you love & whats your type
Mars = how you deal with life
Jupiter = your luck & blessings
Saturn = how you discipline yourself & your responsibilities
Uranus = how unique you are
Neptune = your imagination
Pluto = your transformation
Chiron = your childhood & karmic wounds
North Node (life purpose) & South Nodes (karma)
Your North Node – YOUR DESTINY CALLING – represents our karmic paths and the lessons we came here to learn, or the language we are learning to speak.
Your South Node – YOUR NATURAL ABILITY – KARMA – The south node reveals the challenges and gifts we bring in from previous lifetimes.
