Astrology is the art of Interpreting
Astrology is not only an art of interpreting complex symbols, it is also a practice which calls forth the highest standards of compassion, empathy, and acceptance. An astrological consultation is akin to an oracular divination from the gods, which in its archetypal form links both seeker and facilitator with sacred presence. This presence informs the moment and awakens the longing in both individuals to live in the fullness of purposeful grace.
Astrology is how the planets and their movements in the sky affect us, as individuals, on earth. Each planet symbolizes a certain force or energy; each of the 12 astrological signs represents a different mode or style in which that energy is expressed. Astrology reflects the principle that nothing in the universe is at once so simple or so complicated as man himself, from the simple human traits inherent in all humans at birth to the complexity of specific personality and behavior patterns of a single individual.
Desirable and undesirable characteristics repeat themselves in the individuals of countless generations, appearing only slightly altered by the history of changing circumstances. Specific traits indicated as belonging to one astrological sign does not deny the fact that people born in any of the other eleven signs also possess these traits.
What it means is that hundreds of years of recorded astrological observations have shown that certain traits are more prominent in the personality and temperament of those born in one sign than in another. That is the reason, for example, that moodiness becomes a trait associated with one sign or loquaciousness the hallmark of another.
You may be at the stage of asking, “What is a horoscope?” What is astrology all about? If so, you’re going to find the answers here. To begin, the horoscope is a map that appears as a two dimensional chart. It shows the position of the Sun, the Moon, and planets at the precise moment of your birth. The planets are frozen in their position at that initial moment of birth. That is why this type of horoscope is known as the birth chart or the natal chart.
India is the science of relationships as measured by correlations between the movements of celestial bodies and circumstances and events on earth. Indian Astrology is the art of interpreting the meanings of these relationships and love. It may be thought of as merely an abstract formula showing the energies you’ve been given, or perhaps tasked. The use that you make of these energies, or opportunities, if you will, depends upon you, the individual.
