The term astrology means knowledge of the stars. A skilled astrologer views the stars and planets as life forces that are experienced within each of us. We are not just influenced by hereditary factors and the environment, but also by the state of our solar system at the moment of birth.
The planets are regarded as basic life-forces, the tools we live by as well as the basis of our very substance. These planetary forces take on different forms, depending on their zodiacal position and on the way they relate to one another.
The aspects formed between the planets describe these relationships, the positions of the planets in relation to the place of birth tell us of their expression in the spheres of life depicted by the astrological houses.
By interpreting the roles of the planets and their qualities, the elements, signs and houses, astrology is able to present a complete and comprehensive picture of the person and their potential, based on the natal horoscope.
Just knowing your sun sign can give you a glimpse into your personality traits and how to use your strengths to your advantage.
