Astrology: Superstition Or Tool Of Self-Knowledge & Personal Development?
In parallel with my studies in astrology I have attended many personal development courses: I was looking for ideas to better understand human nature and the psychological dynamics of individuals. I learned a lot in those years, but frankly, none of those paths, although interesting, have given me as many insights as I can about others and astrology.
It is difficult to summarize in a few lines all that astrology has taught me about the people around me, about life, about me. This is why I decided to share 3 of the many reasons why astrology helps us grow as people. You will understand how precious, beautiful and fascinating astrology can be and how it can have a great role in a self-knowledge and personal development journey. Today I want to share with you..
… 3 reasons why everyone should acquire at least some basic knowledge of astrology
… 3 reasons why this discipline can make a difference in the way we look at ourselves, at others, at the world.
Why is it so important to interpret the messages of the stars? The stars have always had a strong fascination for man, they are bearers of transcendental messages and truths that go beyond human understanding.
There is a close link between the movements of the stars and our mood, our personality and our life choices. Everything is bound, and every celestial movement has concrete consequences for our life.
In this vision of astrology the human being itself is not only part of the cosmos but its representation, in its thousand facets. To know and interpret the messages of the stars is to know oneself.
Getting to know each other a little bit better thanks to astrology
Since ancient times, the study of astral movements has fascinated man. Thanks to the development of disciplines such as mathematics and astronomy, our predecessors began to analyze the motion of celestial bodies, realizing that for each precise astral movement or configuration a specific event or state of mind corresponded.++
Who practices the art of astrology is called an astrologer and his divination, horoscope. When deciding to ask for a personalized horoscope or a consultation, it is good to choose a competent and serious astrologer, able to give a precise answer to your questions.
1 – ASTROLOGY TEACHES US THAT THERE ARE AT LEAST 12 WAYS TO LOVE, TO EMOTE, TO THINK, TO COMMUNICATE, TO FIGHT, TO DEFEND YOURSELF
This is one of the first ideas I launch in the basic courses on psychological astrology. Each planet presides over a psychological function: Moon-management of emotions, Venus-affectivity, Mercury-communication and thought, Mars-defense and struggle, etc. Each of these planets works differently based on whether it is in one of the 12 signs. This is why I say that there are at least 12 ways to react to emotions, to fight, to love. Understanding this allows us to be more open to seeing reality not only through our eyes but also those of others, to be more tolerant towards those who are different from us in their way of thinking, living, feeling. Knowing the sign of our planets or those of those around us helps us to understand ourselves and others much more deeply.
2 – ASTROLOGY REMEMBER THAT IN LIFE IS NORMAL TO LIVE MOMENTS OF GROWTH AND MOMENTS OF STATE, WHICH EVERY LOSER PREPARES FOR SOMETHING AGAIN
Every planet moves giving life to cycles. According to the astrological discipline, these cycles affect us. Therefore, each of us inevitably finds himself experiencing the effects of these cycles sooner or later: cycles of development and growth, of opportunities and “luck”, cycles of stagnation, of difficulty, of loss, cycles of construction, dissolution cycles, transformation cycles. No one is exempt: understanding this and the overall sense helps us to insert events that appear “casual” in a larger picture and to make sense of the events of our life. The astrological predictions – not the useless and fictitious predictions of magazines and columns on TV, but the personal ones developed by a serious astrologer with the right preparation and personal depth – do not consist in a simple overview of future events, but they illustrate the steps we are called to face and above all help us to find an overall sense of what is happening and to understand how to better meet challenges and opportunities. To develop a vision of personal evolution.
3 – ASTROLOGY MAKES US ACCEPT OUR INTERNAL CONTRADICTIONS BUT ALSO RESOLVE IT
The birth chart of each of us, through the planets, their signs, and their geometric arrangement, shows us several of our “parts”: parts that can collaborate – for example in the case of trigons and sextiles – or that can operate in a conflictual way (quadratures and oppositions). Each of us has mutually contradictory parts because each of us in the theme has this type of dynamics: seeing them, understanding them and knowing how to interpret them makes us understand how it is normal and human to live contradictions, not to blame ourselves for this, but if anything to understand how blunt these bumps in our personality.
So why not spend a few hours opening this new window on the world and yourself? Astrology can be a fun, exciting and alternative way to find out something new about ourselves but also to spend some quality time thinking about our most magical adventure of them all: the adventure called life.
