Astrology Basics

Astrology is a complicated art and science that applies symbolic meaning to astronomical data as it existed over two thousand years ago, when ancient astronomers and astrologers first recorded the practice of astrology in writing. I've often wanted to travel down the path of grasping and understanding Astrology. Living near the ocean, my curiosity has heighted a venture into the universe and how it relates to the trajectory of my own life.

My basic knowledge is, western astrologers utilize the constellations' ancient placements, whereas Sidereal (also known as Vedic or Hindu) astrologers use the present astronomical positions. The two systems are vastly different, but both operate effectively.

Astrologers begin by constructing your natal chart, or horoscope, based on your birth date, time, and location. Today, the majority of charts are created on computers, making them quite precise. However, their accuracy depends on the information you offer. If you simply know that you were born "about 5 p.m.," any competent astrologer will urge you to seek more accurate birth information or to have your chart fixed.

Astrologers evaluate every aspect of your birth chart separately before integrating it all into a portrait of you and your life. Numerous types of interpretations exist, including: basic insight into your personality; examining specific trouble spots in your life; comparing and contrasting your chart with that of a loved one, friend, co-worker, etc.; looking at career options and financial indications; finding the best place to live; forecasting future opportunities; selecting the best time to get married, start a business, etc.; spiritual growth; and, answering questions.

The majority of astrologers have a general practice that includes a range of these services, and they may also specialize in areas such as relationships or jobs.

The best way to use astrology is to learn to evaluate a problem on your own, examine the choices you must make in order to solve the problem, and then consult your astrologer to determine which possible solutions will work for you and the optimal time to make changes, take risks, be patient and wait, etc. You will be equipped with the knowledge necessary to overcome your problems, alter your life, and become the person you have always aspired to be.

My curiosity is leading me to delve further into this. From here forward will be what I learn on my own journey through the concepts in Astrology.
