Astrology, a spiritual science, is the study of the relationship of the stars and planets to events on Earth and falls more in the category of metaphysics, the study of that which is beyond the physical. The Babylonians are generally credited with the birth of astrology around 2,400 years ago. Under the concept of astrology, humans are fundamentally affected by the alignment of the stars and planets on the date of their birth.
Astrology can be used as a powerful and fun tool for understanding ourselves, others, and the world around us. By charting (or making a natal birth chart) and interpreting your zodiac sign, the position of the sun, moon, ruling planet and the rising sign (or ascendant), a personalized blueprint of your potential can be created. After learning an individual’s chart, an astrologer can advise about the various aspects of a person’s life when it comes to love, finances, business, health, spirituality and even self-care.
In many ways, the work of an astrologer is similar to that of a therapist or counselor. However, an astrologer uses an esoteric system to predict and assume aspects of a person’s personality rather than interviewing them over a series of sessions.
Astrology has been popular with world leaders, popes, business people, stock market brokers, and even celebrities. Some well-known people to have admitted to consulting astrologers include Nancy Reagan, Lady Gaga, Theodore Roosevelt and Madonna.
