What Is Astrology?
Astrology is an art/science that dates back to the dawn of civilization. It is the study and practice that involves mapping the positions of the planets for a specific time, place and date into what is commonly referred to as an Astrology Chart or Horoscope. An astrologer then interprets the relationship of the planets to each other for an individual, a relationship, a business or significant event. In fact, anything that can be marked by a time, place and date can have a Horoscope. The Horoscope is a two dimensional representation of the qualities, potential, current trends and future possibilities of that moment in time.

How Does Astrology Work?
Astrology is based on the concept that celestial bodies have a symbolic influence on human life. Astrologers create birth charts, also known as horoscopes, by mapping the positions of the sun, moon, planets, and other celestial bodies at the time of an individual’s birth. These birth charts are then interpreted to provide insights into various aspects of a person’s life, including personality traits, relationships, career prospects, and more.
Can Astrology Provide Insights Into Personalities?
One of the common uses of astrology is to gain insights into an individual’s personality traits. Astrologers believe that the positions of celestial bodies at the time of birth can influence and reflect various aspects of a person’s character, temperament, strengths, and weaknesses. However, it’s important to note that personality is a complex and multifaceted aspect of an individual, influenced by a wide range of factors including genetics, upbringing, and life experiences. Therefore, relying solely on astrology for understanding personality may oversimplify the complexity of human nature.
Can Astrology Predict the Future?
Astrology is often used to make predictions about future events and circumstances based on planetary cycles and how they interact with the Birth Chart. Each cycle has critical points which can be turning points in life and good times to make decisions and choices.
Is Astronomy Different From Astrology?
Astrology and astronomy were once the exact art/science. Astronomy studies the properties and behaviour of celestial bodies. It involves empirical observation, mathematical calculations, and scientific analysis. Astrology explores the philosophical and esoteric meaning of those observations. It interprets the influence of celestial bodies on human lives and our relationship and place in the universe.
