Astrology is one of the most ancient of sciences. It is based on the observation of the planets in the sky and that of human nature.
Over thousands of years man has noticed that each planet has a unique influence on our
lives and personalities, and that as the planets move around the zodiac these influences
change. The pattern of planets at the moment of birth, our horoscope, affects us at a deep
level. It is as if, when we take our first breath, we record the energy of that moment in our
memory. We then use that recollection to form our personalities and the way we interact with
the outside world.
It may seem incredible that our lives can be affected like this. But at a physical level
nothing is solid or static. Our bodies are formed of energy, making constantly changing
patterns, held together by invisible forces of great power, both on a genetic level and spiritual
one. Nothing is fixed, we exist moment to moment as our internal energy dazzles and whirls
in an elaborate cosmic dance.
Astrology works at even less tangible levels than the physical, as it affects our psyche. It
reveals to us our emotions, feelings, moods, mental powers, life energy and instinctive
reactions. It exposes whether we are fiery or placid, emotional or practical, warm or cool,
independent or family-minded, ambitious or easy-going.
It can seem farfetched that lumps of
matter in the sky should affect us, but
when the interpretation of the birth chart
is done well it can provide amazing and
fascinating insight into why things are as
they are. A personal birth chart will
unlock and explain our confusing
contradictions, inner conflicts, personal
quirks, hidden talents and the way we
relate to other people. Just by knowing
what is shown in our birth chart helps us
to accept ourselves as we are: it’s
wonderfully liberating and, above all, empowering.
In fact astrology is an incredibly helpful tool for gaining self-awareness and of self-
discovery that can bring us greater understanding of all aspects of our lives. It is also
extremely valuable as a basis for counselling, enabling the practitioner to get to the root of
a problem and see the challenges so much more clearly. I have often prepared personality
profiles for counsellors and psychiatrists to use in their work with clients. One told me
that the horoscope showed what it would normally take months of intense sessions of
therapy to uncover.
Astrology is also helpful with timing. As the planets continue with their journey across the
sky, they cross areas corresponding to sensitive points in our birth chart, coinciding with
crucial times in our life. Awareness of these can be very helpful in making the most of
opportunities or by giving us the patience to wait for the right moment to do something.
If astrology can really give such accurate guidance you might well wonder where freewill
comes into the equation. Understanding what is shown in our birth chart can help us to
make better and wiser choices; but it cannot force us to act. Just as looking at our proposed
route on a road map does not automatically result in us arriving at our desired destination. We
always have a choice.
We don’t yet really know how or why astrology works, nor do we know how the universe
expanded from a speck smaller than a pea to the vast size it is today. However, science is
based on observation, and I know from my experience with thousands of charts that
astrology certainly does work, and that it can be extremely helpful.
