Astrology is an ancient accumulation of psychological knowledge. This knowledge can help us to understand ourselves. Through understanding, we are better able to make conscious choices about how we want to live our lives. Astrology can help us realize our developed skills and recognize our untapped potentials. We are bringing words and descriptions to feelings, thoughts, and needs that may have never been completely conscious.

 

Astrology can show us how we are unique, and it also confirms our humanity. We are reminded that our thoughts, feelings, needs and expressions are a valid part of the human experience. Our journey is cyclical just as all of nature works according to cycle. Cycles of destruction, rebuilding and expansion are presented in a way that doesn’t judge whether they are “good” or “bad”. Instead of judging a situation we are practicing acceptance. Instead of resistance we are learning how to ask and discuss what we want to learn from a situation.


At the moment I am looking into astrology, which seems indispensable for a proper understanding of mythology. There are strange and wondrous things in these lands of darkness. Please, don’t worry about my wanderings in these infinitudes. I shall return laden with rich booty for our knowledge of the human psyche.
