IS IT WRITTEN IN THE STARS?
Of course it is not “written in the stars”, it is not the stars that cause our lives to happen, but there are energy resonances in the nature and movement of the planets and stars that are mirrored in us. It is not for nothing that we have the old saying “As above, so below”! The picture of the sky at the time of your birth is a map – it contains information to help you live a fulfilling life.
Astrology is an ancient art and it has been utilised over the centuries by hundreds of thousands of people all over the world, in nearly every culture, to help them gain objectivity and understanding about what is happening in their lives.
A detailed look at your natal horoscope chart can bring you increased clarity and awareness about your life and who you are. Astrology helps us to be more fully engaged in our life’s experience and be responsible for our actions and reactions. We can begin to see that we are not victims, but players with choice in how we play the game of life. Once we see the habits and patterns of our lives, we can be more conscious of how we interact with others and we can choose to make changes to our behaviour that create better outcomes – harmony in relationships and creative solutions to our problems.
There are a number of possible interpretations for each planetary position and aspect because astrology is not an exact science – it is an art and requires an attitude of mind that is broader than the linear reductionist attitude of modern evidence based science. We are each unique, and the context of our life – family, cultural & genetic heritage, national and global issues of our time – all contribute to shape who we are and how we perceive ourselves and the world we interact with. Astrology can help us understand our uniqueness and our gifts and why certain situations keep arising; why we may have difficulties in a particular area of life; how and why we react as we do in emotional crises. Indeed, astrology helps us to see how we approach life in general, and, of course, we all approach life in a different way.
