Exactly what is astrology and what can it do for you? It is a group of beliefs, even a religion, that say that the positions of celestial bodies to each other at the time of your birth can determine a person’s personality traits, love life and health matters. Believers choose to believe that a person’s entire life can be charted out by a master astrologer. This astrological chart can point even a small child in the correct direction toward a good choice for a profession or in a mate. The astrologer making the chart believes that the planets influence the Earth in the same manner they influence people. In this manner, by casting an astrology chart for a specific person, place or thing, the astrologer can interpret the past and possible forecast the future.
Many people consider astrology as nothing more than a parlor game but even back as far as ancient times, people who studied the planets and their position in the night sky kept track of these positions in charts until they could predict the time to plant or the perfect place to build an observatory. Astrology was an accepted practice in ancient times and no king would try to govern without access to a court astrologer to tell him when was the most propitious time to raise taxes, start a war or even marry. Even in the Bible, the importance of astrology is documented. In fact, the greatest event in Christianity, the birth of Jesus, was predicted by the ancient Babylonian astrologers who followed a strange bright star to a baby’s birth spot.
Many people consult astrologers to gain assistance in their daily lives. An astrologer will use the date and hour of your birth and the place of your birth to draw your chart. The positions of the planets and their relevance to other planets, the sun, and the moon at the time of your birth are known to give a great insight into many of a person’s traits. It has been documented over the centuries that people born under a certain sign; with a combination of various rising signs; have the same traits. With this knowledge the astrologer can make a life chart that will allow the person to pursue the things that these signs show he or she would do well or meet and fall in love with a person who has traits that are well suited to him or her. There are certain signs that are not compatible no matter how physically attracted they may be to that person.
By doing a chart for a certain period of time, it is possible to find the most propitious times to build a temple, start a war, change a campaign, or run for president. By doing a chart for the second world war, astrologers can deduce why a certain campaign by the Russians or the Germans went wrong. By doing a chart for the year 2012, the astrologer can see where certain conjunctions of planets can be leading to a sort of mega catastrophe. Whether or not these charts are full proof will only be proven in history; by looking back. This is one reason that those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
Do not be afraid to consult an astrologer to give you a heads-up on certain things happening or about to happen in your life. It never hurts to have a map; not even if you don’t consult it until you are lost. An astrologer can give you a general direction in which to go. If you form a relationship with an astrologer he or she will keep a file on you that documents the positions of your planets at various times in your life. By using these, he or she will be able to assist you in planning your next move. Some people think it is just bunk but even Nancy Reagan and Princess Diana trusted the guidance that an astrologer could provide and consulted one often. Never miss out on a chance for a little help.
