Astrology uses the positioning of the 9 planets in our solar system, the movement of the sun and moon and the time of your birth to create your personalized astrological forecast. Astrology is a tool that can be used to help you to achieve a greater sense of personal awareness. It can be used to help you make better choices and realize a greater path for yourself in life.
Astrology has been used for thousands of years to predict future events. Records of astrological recordings date back as far as 1800BC discovered in Mesopotamia. The Babylonians used astrology back then to predict lunar eclipses, the rising and setting of the constellations and planetary movement.
The sky is divided into twelve parts, which make up the 12 zodiac signs that govern each one of us.
Your zodiac sign is determined by the positioning of the planets and stars during the time of your birth.
Each of these signs is made up of a unique combination of one of the four elements and one of three qualities of the zodiac.
Elements and qualities reflect our human characteristics.
Elements – (Fire, Earth, Air and Water) Describe our basic nature and temperament.
Qualities – (Cardinal, Fixed, Mutable) Address the manner in which we express ourselves.
Fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) – Just like a fireball, fire signs go through life with energy and enthusiasm. Their spontaneity can sometimes lead to outrageous behavior that can get them into trouble. They usually know what they want and how to get it.
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) – Earth signs usually have both feet planted firmly on the ground. They are practical and logical and do not enjoy taking risks. You can depend on this type of person as they will never let you down. They can be quite materialistic at times which can result in driving themselves too hard to bring up their comfort level.
Air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) – These are the intellectuals of the zodiac that can think so long and so hard that they just get lost in their daydreams. They are problem solvers and are good communicators but when things do not go their way they can turn as cold as ice.
Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) – Water signs are emotional, moody and nurturing. They make decisions based on feeling rather than logic. They are artistic and sensitive to their environment, making them good at understanding the needs of others.
The Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) – Cardinal signs take action! While they are always inspired and motivated to begin projects they seldom ever complete them.
The Fixed Signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) – Fixed signs are determined and persistent people who always see things through to completion, and usually do not need any help to do so. They are leaders who like to do things their way. This can be conflicting when a project calls for working in a group.
The Mutable Signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces) – Mutable signs are usually quite flexible and versatile. They can adapt to any type of situation. Their flexibility can sometimes cause them to become inconsistent at times.
