Astrology is how the planets and their movements in the sky affect us, as individuals, on earth. Each planet symbolizes a certain force or energy; each of the 12 astrological signs represents a different mode or style in which that energy is expressed.
When people refer to their astrological sign, they are merely stating which sign of the zodiac the sun was in when they were born.
Astrology reflects the principle that nothing in the universe is at once so simple or so complicated as man himself, from the simple human traits inherent in all humans at birth to the complexity of specific personality and behavior patterns of a single individual. Desirable and undesirable characteristics repeat themselves in the individuals of countless generations, appearing only slightly altered by the history of changing circumstances. Specific traits indicated as belonging to one astrological sign does not deny the fact that people born in any of the other eleven signs also possess these traits. What it means is that hundreds of years of recorded astrological observations have shown that certain traits are more prominent in the personality and temperament of those born in one sign than in another. That is the reason, for example, that moodiness becomes a trait associated with one sign or loquaciousness the hallmark of another.
Some people maintain that we humans are influenced by strange forces emanating from various planets. The popular press would have us believe that the inhabitants of planet Earth can be divided into twelve different types that they then fill with their shallow perceptions.
Astrology can only be as competent as the people who make use of it. Astrology as such is actually nothing more than a mathematical system, showing a person’s planetary representation at the time of birth in a 360° circle.
To accomplish this we consider various factors. The first question to be answered is why these creatures involved in Astrology seem to be infatuated with the exact time of birth. It is really quite simple! We are interested in finding out which ascendant was chosen to experience Earthly life. The twelve houses symbolize the areas of life and the ascendant is the beginning of the FIRST HOUSE, the beginning of the chart.
What is it that awakens the chart’s houses to life?
…The planets-each symbolizes a certain type of energy. Their positions within the houses determine into which areas of life their energy is channeled. In addition, the angular relationships of the planets to each other that are called aspects put Astrologers in the position to make statements about the manifestation of these diverse forms of energy in the life of an individual person.
CURIOUS? You will have to be patient a little longer!
Before we get started on your horoscope, I would like to call your attention to a small problem. As you hold your interpretation in your hands, you may be startled to read that you are characterized differently in the various interpretation texts – Sun in Sagittarius: you are open, warm… followed by Moon in Capricorn: you appear cold and distanced… It is your job to piece them together, because everyone’s character is made up of different qualities and you have learned more or less to live with these types of contradictions. Actually it is better to be open about contradictions in your personality, they allow for a change of pace once in a while and also provide opportunities for growth, although not necessarily without suffering. Try to understand of the fact that the computer does not know you and can not possibly present a complete picture.
For this reason it is very important that you do not get hung up on single words or examples in the texts and try to apply these strictly to your life. You should try to develop a feeling for the basic energies that are manifested in an aspect or a planet and keep in mind that they may appear in a somewhat different form in your life. Take the opportunity to discover and develop your own form of Astrology. Here you have finally found a field that is not governed by strict rules, but can be formed by your own individual sensitivity.
Some people don’t seem to fit the descriptive characteristics of their astrological sign. Please note that the sign descriptions included here are based on the typical person born under that sign. There are exceptions to every rule and you may feel that your sign profile does not fit what is reported here. Also do not feel that what is included here is set in stone. Destiny is what you make of it, the following pages are only meant to be helpful guides and suggestions.
We wish you fruitful insights!!
