Have you ever read daily horoscopes and wondered, “Is astrology real”? You might even have wondered how useful astrology can be to you personally. The purpose of the philosophy and intuitive nature of Astrology isn’t something limited to people of a certain age, education, or religion. All that is required is an interest – and possibly some determination – to learn more deeply about yourself and others.
A System of Understanding the Self, Relationships, and Life Cycles
The history of astrology goes back centuries. Today’s Western Astrology is based on ancient astronomy and the belief systems of people such as the Babylonians and Sumerians, but over the course of thousands of years, it has become modernized and has evolved into a system of understanding the self, relationships, and life cycles. Astrology wisdom acts as a guide to better understanding oneself and the world around you.
While the astrology of old was used mainly by the priests, doctors, and kings of the day to try to predict events and understand how movements in the sky were related to earthly matters, its endurance into our contemporary world has led to the development of many different traditional schools and types of astrology: Practical, Psychological, Heliocentric, Financial, and more.
Many people wishing for insight into their own mind and spirit or to better understand partners, friends, or family gravitate toward Psychological Astrology, as it helps the person studying to look deeply into their own development as a human being. This is the astrology type you might be most familiar with from reading a daily horoscope.
Astrology is for Everyone
Your horoscope sign is based on your date of birth in Western astrology, and your daily horoscope is based on each day’s astrological transits — or celestial movements. Daily horoscopes are based on the sun sign, or the date of your birth. Natal charts can also use the time and exact location of your birth to determine your sun and moon signs, which you’ll learn more about as you dive deeper into the study of astrology.
Horoscopes are useful and can provide general guidance for the decisions you make each day. Your Zodiac sign isn’t meant to define who you are — or even what you do, and your horoscope won’t predict the future. You’re always in control of your actions. Your daily horoscope can simply offer outside wisdom and perspective to help you navigate life’s challenges.
