Working with astrology blends different modes of human perception. It is as much an intuitive practice, or art, as it is an empirical exercise, or science. This combination of principles – an art and a science – is crucial for understanding how astrology is applied. Astrology best sheds light on the pattern and symbols that underscore life. Today, many Western astrologers look at astrology from a psychological point of view, to examine what motivates individuals, and why. Astrology can help us to learn more about ourselves, what motivates us and why. Through astrology, we can gain a greater awareness of our strengths and subsequent opportunities, as well as the weaknesses and challenges we face in life. Harnessing this knowledge can help us make the most of our full potential.
Contemporary astrologers often take the view that the birth chart is a map or blue-print of your individual potential. It shows where strengths lie, and what we can improve upon. Astrology can reveal the kind of work or career we are suited to, how we go about achieving the things that we want in the world, how comfortable or uncomfortable we are within ourselves, and how other people are likely to respond to us. It can reveal information about our relationships, finances, family life, children and life direction. It can tell us a lot about where we hold ourselves back in life, the things we do habitually that fail to get us what we want, and what we can do to change. While very few of us ever realize our full potential, with astrological awareness we can hone in on our skills, acknowledge our challenges, and ultimately come to lead more fulfilling lives.
