Astrology Lighting up the Dark



Some people question the worth of Astrology to them I would say:

As human beings, we have long resisted what is obscure and latent. We have instead measured our lives only by what we see, hear, feel, taste, and touch.

"Ignorance is bliss,"

we say, and then we shut our eyes and act as if it’s OK this way. Ignorance is the common source of misery to us.

"Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth."

Hindu Prince Gautama Siddhartha, the founder of Buddhism, 563-483 B.C.

"One's own self is well hidden from 
one's ownself; of all mines of treasure, one's own is the last to be dug up."

Friedrich Nietzsche (German classical Scholar, Philosopher and Critic of culture, 1844-1900

I admit that the Moon (working as a Planet) has a powerful affect on Human beings as a whole.

It seems to me though that the Moon in our natural everyday lives is the only one given credit to be of influence.

Why is that?

Let me ask you a question.

After having had a weird experience do you ever say this? "It must be a full Moon".

Well, this example goes to the common thought among us that the Moon is the only Planet that affects us.

The influence of some Signs in certain Planets is certainly more powerful and more difficult to overcome than others.

I believe negative aspects of certain Sun signs and signs that are housed in Saturn are particularly hard.

I found that people who have a general knowledge of Zodiac signs, tend to use this basic knowledge in three ways:

* The first way--Taking the negative aspects of their Sign as an excuse for being and remaining the way they are.

* Secondly--People with a general knowledge of Zodiac signs tend to have the attitude that theirs is the best Sign.

* Thirdly-- People with a basic grasp of Zodiac signs look down on their zodiac neighbor.

I say these things because of the clichés that inside we actually believe to be true.

Clichés like:

  • "Ooh, a Scorpio, get away from this one".
  • Or,
  • "Capricorns are so cold".
  • And yet another,
  • "Virgos have no real passion in relationships".

Be it however small, like all clichés there is some truth there.

All the same, it doesn't fit every instance nor every person of a certain sign.

It all depends on the individual and their particular Natal chart. When it comes down to it,certain Signs need to be understood in a better way.

Some Signs have more negative aspects to contend with when trying to subdue natural defects.

In essence, it is unwise to judge Signs in this way, yours as well as others.

When you become a student of Astrology, it is possible, after a little application and observation to figure out what astrological place a person was born under.

You will be able to do this by studying the aspects of the Zodiac and then watching the general behavior and habits of your chosen Subject.

What do you think about Astrology's influence on us?

What are some of the clichés you have in your mind of some astrology signs?
