You probably already know your Sun sign, but there’s much more to astrology than Sun signs and horoscopes. Did you know that astrology can help you understand who you truly are, and help you to build or heal a relationship? It can even help you find lost objects or plan a wedding. Read on to find out more about the diverse ways in which astrology can help.
1. Know Yourself
Natal or birth chart astrology is the type of astrology most of us know about – or rather, think we know about. Astrologers create your birth chart by plotting the position of all of the planets and astrological bodies (not just the Sun) at the date, place and time of your birth.
Through analyzing the sign and house position of every planet, and the angles and interactions each planet makes with the others, your personality is revealed. A psychic reading can help you understand where your true talents lie, but also where your challenges are. Parts of your personality you’re not too thrilled about are illuminated and revealed too – and that means you can understand yourself better and move towards living to your full potential.
2. Improve Your Relationships
Synastry is the branch of astrology which specializes in relationships – not only love, but all interpersonal relationships be they with family, friends or colleagues. Synastry is the art of comparing two or more birth charts to see how they interact and bounce off one another, and it’s extremely revealing in ascertaining why some relationships work and some don’t.
Again, there’s much more to this than just Sun signs -it’s not true that certain signs get on and others don’t, since we humans are much more complex than that. In a synastry analysis, every part of each chart is compared against every part of the other chart. Where key planets are found close to each other, or at particular angles, or in particular houses, this reveals how two people see each other, what they want and need from each other, what they dislike about each other, and how they can best interact.
3. Got Questions? Get Answers
Horary astrology is a very specialized branch of astrology, dating back to classical times. This is the art of using astrology to answer a very specific question such as “Where are my lost keys?” or “Should I accept this job offer?”.
In horary astrology, a chart is cast for the moment the question is “born” in the questioner’s mind. The resulting chart is analyzed using complex, traditional rules, to result in a very clear answer to the original question. This is a fascinating area of astrology, but one which is often overlooked in our modern age.
4. Planning A Big Day
Whether it’s a wedding, a business launch or a new house – significant events can have “birth charts” too, and astrologers can help you to look ahead, choosing the ideal date, time and place for an important event, if you have control over the choice. This type of astrology is called electional astrology, and it blends traditional, classical rules with modern psychological astrology in order to narrow down a choice of dates.
When choosing a date for a wedding, for instance, the astrologer will look for a day which has favorable aspects of its own – loving and romantic ones, yes, but also solid, stable foundations and a realistic approach to the hard work of marriage – and will also ensure that the chosen date has the best possible interaction with the individual birth charts of the two people concerned.
What do you need help with in life right now? The chances are that there’s a branch of astrology which could prove very useful, so keep an open mind when thinking about what type of astrological consultation would be best for you.
