What is Astrology?

Astrology is, put simply, the study of the correlation between the astronomical positions of the planets and events on earth. Astrologers believe that the positions of the Sun, Moon, and planets at the time of a person’s birth have a direct influence on that person’s character. These positions are thought to affect a person’s destiny, although many Astrologers feel that free will plays a large role in any individual’s life.

Astrology can be used as a powerful and fun tool for understanding ourselves, others, and the world around us. We use many different tools, or languages, to define and understand our world. For example, we can use psychological tools and terminology to explore human behavior. Similarly, Astrology gives us rich tools for understanding human character, and offers us a language for communicating our observations with others.

Astrology can be understood as a philosophy that helps to explain life, rather than a type of mysticism that can be used as a predictive tool. Instead of discussing what the planets do to us, we can explain ourselves based on planetary indications. The signs work the same way: Each of the 12 signs is a unique combination of one of the four Elements — Earth, Air, Fire, Water — and one of the three Qualities — Cardinal, Fixed, Mutable. The Elements and Qualities demonstrate that we are all part of the environment. There is a connection between all living things and all matter on this planet. Astrology ties humans together: We are all faced with the same planetary interactions, and we are all part of the same cycles.

Despite all these connections, astrology does not tie you to being a certain way, and it doesn’t predict everything about you. Astrology explains the energy in your life and its potential challenges and possibilities. You can evolve from your chart. Astrology is about you. What you can learn from it can help you make a choice between free will and destiny.

Horoscope? Sign? Zodiac?

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.

Sun Sign Astrology gets a lot of press. However, with a little thought, it is rather intuitive to feel that dividing the entire human population into only 12 categories (the 12 Sun Signs) is far too simplistic. The truth is, every individual on this planet is complex.

While the sign position of the Sun is meaningful, there is much more to Astrology than just the Sun.
