What is astrology?
Astrology, which dates back to at least the second millennium BC, has its origins in a calendar system that predicts seasonal changes and interprets celestial cycles as signs of divine communication. Many cultures value astronomical events, and some cultures (such as the Indians, Chinese, and Mayans) have developed sophisticated systems to predict terrestrial events based on celestial observations. Contemporary Western astrology is often associated with astrology systems designed to explain a person's personality and predict major events in their life based on the positions of celestial bodies. Astrologers believe that the positions of the Sun, Moon, and planets at a person's birth directly affect that person's personality. Although many astrologers believe that free will plays an important role in anyone's life, it is believed that these positions will affect his destiny. Astrology can be a powerful and interesting tool for understanding yourself, others, and the world around you. We use many different tools or languages to define and understand our world. For example, we can use the tools and terminology of psychology to explore human behavior. Likewise, astrology provides us with a wealth of tools to understand people's personalities and a language to communicate our perceptions with others. Although we can use the birth chart as a "window" to any person or event, we should not use it to judge or label people. We can never claim to know absolutely everything about a person just because we have that person's birth chart. It is best to think of astrology as an imperfect language.
What is your "zodiac sign" ?
When a person asks your “sign”, even if they don’t know it, they are referring to your Sun Sign, which is the zodiacal sign position of the Sun at the time of your birth. While the position of the Sun's horoscope makes sense, there is much more to astrology than just the Sun. In addition to the Sun sign, everyone has a Moon sign, Mercury sign, Venus sign, Mars sign, etc. The study of astrology is indeed complex. You really could spend a lifetime studying the subject! Fortunately, studying astrology can be a fun and rewarding endeavor, especially for those who have a strong interest in themselves, others and life. Beginning astrology students can take it one step at a time, perhaps starting with the Sun sign, moving on to the study of the Moon, etc. The wonderful reward from this step-by-step approach is that the astrological chart of yourself and your loved ones will gradually unfold in your vision.
