If you’re passionate about the soul’s journey, inner alchemy and practical ways to better your life, why not look at the stars? Astrology is a great tool that can help us reconnect with our spiritual nature, and make the best use out of our human experience. Today, I share with you 4 things astrology can teach you about life.
As a passionate professional Astrologer, saying that I love Astrology is an understatement. But this wasn’t always the case. I actually “met” Astrology before I started diving deeper into the occult. It was probably one of the biggest turning points in my spiritual awakening.
During my high school years, my practical and logical side hated how reducing, broad and limiting horoscopes were.
I had just learned during those times about the Barnum effect. In a nutshell, this is is a psychological phenomenon whereby individuals give high accuracy to descriptions of their personality thinking those are specifically tailored for them. In fact, there was only 1 broad description for all the participants.
Used by most “Astrology Debunkers” out there, the Barnum or Forer effect was how I made sense of the horoscopes and Sun Sign gibberish I read out and about. Like a true detective, and probably guided by my Higher Self, I decided one day to “infiltrate” Astrology. Why? In order to understand the field better, and be prepared to win any argument with Astrolovers out there.
And oh boy, I was in for a ride! The book I happened to pick was absolutely golden, and through that lecture alone, I was hooked. From wanting to “debunk” Astrology, I began debunking my own myths and misconceptions about it.
A Roadmap To Your Higher Self
One of the surprising things that happens when we dive into Astrology for the first time is realize how biased we were in the past, judging a book by its ridiculed caricature. For me, what first seemed like just a matter of Sun signs, turned into a structured, detailed and complex discipline.
Here I was learning about Risings, Houses, Birth Charts, Planets, Asteroids, Degrees, Aspects, Transits, Progressions… And laughing at how ignorant I was in the past!
Also, I started slowly seeing how Astrology doesn’t make us “good” or “bad”, nor does it dictate our life. Just like playing a card game, when we enter this reality, we are given cards to play with: a family, a body, a story, strengths, weaknesses…
This is the canvas on which we can draw our life. And there is no such thing as “bad” cards per se, it’s all about the confident, intelligent and ideal use of the cards we have. Everything is possible when we know how to play the game!
So, like promised, here’s the 4 things Astrology can teach us about life!
4 Things Astrology Can Teach You About Life
1. The Human Psyche is as complex as it is beautiful
Astrology unveils the beauty and complexity of the Universe and of the Human Soul. With 12 energies and a set number of planets, elements and modalities, there’s an infinite number of combinations and possible expressions of Divinity.
2. Knowledge is everywhere
Astrology is for those who are curious children at heart. For those who are fascinated by the endless wonders of the World; and definitely not afraid to seek answers.
While learning Astrology, the first thing you’ll realize is that to understand certain concepts, you will need to study Mathematics (I never thought I’d say this, ever!), Mythology, Astronomy, History, Esotericism, Symbology…
3. Destiny and free-will are not incompatible
What’s beautiful about Astrology is that it doesn’t tell you WHO you are, but rather HOW. Through learning and applying Astrology in my everyday life, I realized that although we are all given a canvas when we are born, it is completely up to us to fill in the blanks. Each one of us has the freedom to choose how he wants to express and use his natal placements.
4. Our intuition is the ultimate compass
Astrology is the study of archetypes, energies, concepts, patterns and data; so the more I learn and apply Astrology, the sharper my intuition gets. After reading 150+ birth charts, I can definitely say that every chart is a doorway to the Divine, a blueprint to something greater.
For me, Astrology is not just a self-help tool, it’s a lifestyle and spiritual practice on its own.
