An Introduction to Astrology

"The placement of the celestial bodies in the heavens at any given moment in time reflects the nature of that moment, including the nature of an individual born in that moment."

The Inner workings of Astrology

In today's modern society people from all walks of use astrology or consult astrologers for personal guidance. Personal Horoscopes can give someone insight into many areas of life, such as, love and romance, business and finance, career, home and family life, and so on.

Many well known leaders and rules throughout history have consulted astrologers for guidance, and many well known historical figures studied and contributed to astrology over the years. Astrology works according to the laws of nature, and also upon the synchronicity principle. As Above So Below. The patterns found in the Macrocosm (the universe) can be observed in the Microcosm (the world within us).

Celestial bodies may have influence over terrestrial matter through various forces and mechanisms such as electromagnetism. Through careful observation and study of their positions and movements, and positive and negative aspects, celestial bodies can be used as signs or portents of events to come.

In the words of the famous Psychologist Carl G. Jung:

"Our modern science begins with astronomy. Instead of saying that man was led by psychological motives, they formerly said he was led by his stars. ... The puzzling thing is that there is really a curious coincidence between astrological and psychological facts, so that one can isolate time from the characteristics of an individual, and also, one can deduce characteristics from a certain time. Therefore we have to conclude that what we call psychological motives are in a way identical with star positions. Since we cannot demonstrate this, we must form a peculiar hypothesis. This hypothesis says that the dynamics of our psyche is not just identical with the position of the stars, nor has it to do with vibrations - that is an illegitimate hypothesis. It is better to assume that "i" is a phenomenon of time. ... The stars are simply used by man to serve as indicators of time..."
