So many people like to insult Astrology, saying it is not fact, but a bunch of garbage that could pertain to anyone. People often say things like, “I don’t believe in that voodoo crap, everything you say is so vague, it could literally apply for everyone. People also don’t understand how people born on the same day as them or those who share the same sign as them can be like them when they are so different. Most men don’t even bother with Astrology at all as over 65% of the audience for Astrology content is female.
Think About Astrology as The Sport for the Self
Firstly, you are not defined by your sun sign—it is your whole birth chart that completes your Astrological DNA. As Carole Taylor describes: “The birth chart is a holistic image of you. Its symbols describe both inner and outer circumstances and all levels of your personal history and experience.” This means that every individual is unique based on their own birth chart. Also, Astrology is expressed either through the spirit or the ego, which can make up for many differences between the same signs. Horoscopes can be very vague, and seem meaningless, which is why you should look into an in-depth monthly horoscope. Also, keep in mind, a horoscope does not tell the teachings of Astrology, nor does it go into the prototype of each sign. Meaning, the initial introduction to Astrology has us feeling the wrong things about it. Reading and relating or disliking your horoscope does not compare to getting a full-blown Astrology reading. Here, is where the Astrologer will dig deep into your chart to find out what makes you tick, what makes you special, and what makes you—you.
What is Astrology?
One can define Astrology as the practice of reading the movements and patterns of the planets and other celestial bodies and correlating them with life on earth. It resides on a view of the cosmos as holistic and interconnected.
What Are Some of the Biggest Misconceptions with Astrology?
Astrology will not read your fortune. It will show you your potential. What you do with it is entirely up to you and how hard you work to master your talents and work hard in this world. Your Astrology is not based on your sun sign, that’s just the point of the project, but actually, your Astrology is a lot more complex than that. You will have a big three: a sun sign, a moon sign, and a rising sign. The combination of not only the sign but the elements will reveal a lot about you. This read will be much more in-depth than any horoscope can provide you, and should speak directly to your nature, personality, and emotional longings and interactions.
People are often quick to type-cast the signs, as we see a lot of generic Astrology accounts posting information that is not even remotely accurate. You can avoid fake Astrology by staying away from accounts that bunch signs “together” into one meme or one horoscope. For example, if you see a tweet that is addressed to “Scorpio, Capricorn, Libra, Aries” and it provides a horoscope for all of these signs at once, I can almost guarantee that this horoscope will not apply to all of these signs because they are vastly different.
Why is Astrology of Value?
There are a lot of reasons why Astrology holds volume, even if people cast it aside. Astrology can provide insight into a lot of things regarding our lives. The most sacred is the daily affirmation that it brings into your life. You can be reminded why you are great. You can be motivated. Reminded. Justified. However you may need to feel, Astrology can help you get there while helping you to understand yourself a lot better. The beauty of Astrology is that it presents us as our raw selves and it highlights the good and bad in all of us. There is definitely psychology to Astrology as it can be a form of seeking self-improvement. With Astrology, the truth is staring you in the face and you get to decide whether or not you believe it or take it in. Sadly, there are some people in this world who choose to never acknowledge their bad side or ugly traits. Others are simply more open, more open-minded to a new realm of thinking, feeling, and believing. Astrology doesn’t have to be your religion, but it is something to consider, especially in areas of love and career. The planets Venus, Mercury, and Jupiter reveal a lot about one’s love life and working potential.
Reasons to Embrace Astrology
Most people love to read and learn about their sun sign or chart. It is like a star map to your personal strengths and potential. Why not read something insightful that you could feel is like a map to your personal path. Energy is everything and knowing about the elements and how they relate and interact with each other. Astrology affects how we communicate, how we love, how we want to be loved, and what our career potential feels like.
