Definition: Astrology is the study of the motions and relative positions of the planets, sun, and moon. Astrologers believe that the positions of each planet at the time of a person’s birth have a direct influence on that person’s character. These positions are thought to affect a person’s destiny, even if free will plays a larger role in any individual’s life.
What many probably don’t realize is how many uses are provided by astrology. There is electional (the best day to do something), mundane(the astrology of a place such as a town or city), horary (where a chart is created in response to a inquiry), astrocartography (each planet in your chart lines up with an area in the world), relocational (looking at how a place will influence you and your life), and medical astrology (considering your physical vulnerabilities) just to name the most common. Then you have the different systems of astrology such as Western, Chinese, Aztec, Vedic, and Sidereal.
Since the beginning of time, man has looked to the heavens for answers, intuitively knowing that this is where we came from! Our natal charts are a sort of snapshot of who we are and what our tendencies are throughout this incarnation. Although it is incredibly accurate, the best of astrologers know that there are ways to “adjust” your chart if you were born with too many negative aspects. The key is that astrology provides a communication from a Greater Source through the Language of Light so that we don’t have to feel so lost in this dimension of choices, cycles, and tendencies. By mastering astrology, you increase your awareness of how much the solar system effects us and how we truly are not separate from its cycles and movements.
