THE EMPOWERMENT OF ASTROLOGY

What is Astrology?

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW.
Astrology is the study of the correlation between the positions of the planets (including the sun and moon) in the cosmos and events on earth. Astrology is an art and a science and requires a combination of skills in both to achieve the best results.

What is the purpose of Astrology?

STEP INTO YOUR OWN POWER.
Astrology provides information about the energies flowing through an individual and the cosmos and the possible effects of those energies in a person’s life. This foresight allows the individual to make informed decisions and take responsibility and control of their lives instead of feeling like a powerless observer of their own life events.

What to expect from an Astrology reading?

INSIGHT INTO YOUR OWN LIFE EXPERIENCE
An essential part of the astrologer’s toolbox is the natal chart. The Astrologer will read the chart and provide information on various aspects of a person’s life at the present time and into the future. Your chart contains information regarding everything contained in your life journey from beginning to end including relationships, talents, life challenges, career path etc. and even experiences carried over from past lives.

What is a natal chart?

SNAP SHOT OF THE HEAVENS
A natal chart or birth chart is a map of the solar system at the exact time and place of your birth. The chart is calculated with you on earth in the centre and the positions of all the planets are shown all around you in their various zodiac signs and houses (areas of life) in a circle. This provides a blue print of your character and life experience. Therefore, it could be said that we are a living imprint of the state of the cosmos at the exact moment we were born, which equips us for our life experience.

Forecasting

TRANSITING PLANETS
Our natal chart is fixed as this shows the positions of the heavenly bodies at our time of birth. As time passes the planets continue with their cycles and are said to be in transit. When the planets, during their transits, form angles to our natal planets positions this activates the relevant part of our lives reflected by the planets position. These ‘transits’ indicate trends and issues in our lives and form the basis for our Astrology forecast.

Sun Sign Astrology

POSITION OF THE SUN IN THE ZODIAC AT THE TIME OF BIRTH
Sun sign or Star sign Astrology receives a lot of press and horoscopes are contained in most magazines and newspapers. Most people will know their Sun sign or Star or Zodiac sign. However, whilst the position of the sun in the natal chart is very meaningful, so too are the positions of all the other planets. Although you will share some of the traits outlined by your Sun sign, the depiction of the whole chart is what really describes the character of a person in detail.
