and have looked to the movements of stars in the heavens for guidance since antiquity. Astrology is, put simply, the study of the relationship between the astronomical positions of the planets and events here on earth.
Since antiquity, Astrologers believe that the position of the Sun, Moon and planets at the time of a person’s birth has a direct influence on a person’s character. These positions are thought to also affect a person’s destiny, yet many Astrologers feel that free will plays a large part in creating the individual’s life. Having insight into oneself provides an opportunity and is an aid to making life choices.
The meaning of the word Astrology is from the Greek language – ‘astro’ stars and ‘logy’ logic; together, the logic study of the stars. The study of the movements and relative positions of the heavenly bodies is like a road map and can be interpreted as having an influence on human affairs and the natural world.
Our astrological birth chart, also known as a horoscope represents a map of the solar system from the exact time and place of birth, a blueprint of your personality and your personal road map representing a set of potentials, with the contents being added through personal experiences of life.
It all works out as if all the human features were represented within the whole twelve zodiac signs. Each zodiac sign reflects an independent and strong typology, complementary to the other signs, expressing by itself its nature and its personality with its characteristics, its tendencies and its motivations.
We use a number of tools or languages to define and understand our world.
For example; we can use psychological tools and terminology to explore human behaviour. Similarly, Astrology provides us with a rich tool for understanding human behaviour and offers us a language for communicating our observations with others.
