Astrology is more than just horoscopes and zodiac signs. It’s an ancient belief system that dates back nearly five thousand years. Through ancient Egyptian, Greek, Babylonian and Chinese cultures, astrology has progressed in both knowledge and understanding of the skies. As astrologers continued to monitor the stars over the years, brilliant connections between humans and planets were formed.
Constellations, or images formed through star patterns, were eventually named to keep track of their progression over weeks, months and years. Studies continued, and planets developed personal characteristics, thus cultural mythologies were born. Each star, planet and named constellation has a different story which eluded to historical events here on Earth. A relationship between man and the heavens was established, helping us understand where we’ve come from and where we’re going next. Experts and philosophers created calendars after closely monitoring the stars and their behaviors to further study these relationships. Other tools have been particularly helpful to individual understanding of life, consciousness and the future of human existence. As the planets rotate and each of the signs come into fruition, we learn more about ourselves and how connected we are with the heavens. Over the years, humans have used astrology to help guide their lives for the better and gain a better understanding of one’s inner makings as well as the motivations of others. As recent as the mid 20th century, astrologers have developed new methods and theories that included the collective unconscious, archetypes and synchronicity.
These analytic psychology studies help humans connect celestial events with conscious and unconscious thought patterns even more precisely than before. Theoretical ideas link all minds together as one, even though individual thought and activities are related to a person’s situation. That means that while we are certainly all different beings and possess unique characteristics, genetic structuring forces us to share many undeniable similarities. The Zodiac calendar is comprised of 12 signs that relate to the aligning of stars with other planets. Each sign represents an equal segment of the calendar that remains connected to characteristic traits. Depending on a person’s particular date of birth, that sign offers insight into mood, thought process and events that occur during a life. The signs can be broken into four elementary categories: fire, water, air and earth. Each element is attached to three signs as they rotate through the calendar year, and events unfold every week that clue us into our relationship with the stars. It’s hard to deny the conscious connection between the human mind and the stars, and every day, we learn more about how and why we arrived on our home planet. Because you may not fully understand this connection, astrologers over the centuries have dedicated their lives to pinpointing exact moments that stars align with each other, creating astral events in the night sky.
