“As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul.” ~Hermes Trismegistus
All things are energy, and they are connected and in relationship with one another. Since the dawn of time, this intuitive awareness has been evident. Technically, astrology is the study of the correlation between the energy of heavenly bodies and the manifestation of that energy here on Earth.
Astrologers use a combination of quantum awarenesses about the cosmos, scientific tools, intuition, and psychology. Astrology works with elemental energetic patterns. It focuses on relationships, patterns, and cycles, and can lend insight into a deeper understanding of our mental, emotional, and spiritual natures.
Astrology allows us to delve more deeply than a mere surface-level focus, moving beyond questions about WHAT we’re doing, into the underlying motivations and tendencies and, even more deeply, into the core needs and desires forged into our Essence. This level of understanding can lead to profound levels of self-acceptance and compassion, and a renewed sense of purpose.
According to Carl Jung, our Soul speaks to us through the language of images and symbols. Astrological IS this symbolic, archetypal language, providing a framework to translate concepts and knowledge in ways our human minds can understand. In many ways, Astrology is a bridge, connecting our many unique and disparate parts into a cohesive Whole.
The cosmos have eternally filled us, each, with curiosity and awe.
Astrology sings to us in the languaging of our own Cosmic Self, resplendent this same curiosity and awe.
“Astrology has been the first and most universal attempt by man to find the hidden order behind or within the confusion of the earthly jungle – physical or psychological, as the case may be.”
