A Brief History
The Babylonians are generally credited with the birth of astrology. Their astrological charts enabled them to predict the recurrence of seasons and certain celestial events. So, in the beginning and for more than 2,000 years, astrology and astronomy were the same science.
While earliest astrology was used to bring a sense of order out of apparent chaos, it was soon utilized to predict weather patterns, primarily for agricultural purposes. It was eventually broadened to include forecasts of natural disasters and war and other events in the course of human affairs. Amassing successes in these fields, it was a natural progression for astrology to be used as counsel for kings and emperors and, in time, for all of us.
Astrology in Your Life
Your birth chart is a picture of the position of the planets around the earth, in the zodiac, at the moment you were born. This is the road map of your soul. You wouldn't have chosen to incarnate at that moment, on that day if your soul's energies didn't match the energy in the sky at that time. From this map an infinite mandala of information, guidance and evolutionary instruction is available. By showing your strengths and weaknesses your chart opens the opportunity to apply more conscious imagination to your life choices.
The natal horoscope is a map of where the planets were when you were born. The progressed horoscope is where the planets are in your life now, as they each move at a relative speed throughout our lives marking our growth. It is beneficial to know both. The challenges facing us today are greater than at any other time in the history of humankind, and available solutions are less obvious. Astrology recognizes these conditions and has a broader scope of awareness, bringing help from the language of the stars to successfully meet the challenges of life.
