What is Astrology?

Astrology is an ancient discipline which studies how celestial phenomena affect the human world. Although there are many different approaches to the discipline, all astrologers are united in the idea that there is a connection between the heavens and Earth. Astrology studies heavenly cycles and cosmic events as they are reflected in our earthly environment and vice-versa.

Astrology in its precision stands apart from divination tools such as tarot, runes, palm readings, clairvoyance readings, and other psychic tools. It should also not be confused with generalized daily, weekly, or monthly horoscopes which are often used in the media for entertainment purposes.

Astrology’s uncompromising quest for truth, its immense spiritual potential, and the ease with which it assists us in navigating our daily life have made this discipline a global phenomenon whose cultural relevance spans historical epochs as much as it cuts across continental divides.

The primary task of modern astrologers is to achieve a holistic view of human personality and place their clients on the road to self-discovery. This is done by means of one’s birth chart, which is a map of planetary positions – if you will, a snapshot of the celestial sphere - at one's date, place and time of birth.

The rise of modern psychology had inspired a renaissance of astrological thought and practice in the twentieth century West. As the latter split into different theoretical schools such as psychoanalysis, behaviorism and humanism, so astrology adopted different approaches to its practice. Eminent psychoanalyst Carl G. Jung had a strong interest in astrology and examined it in the context of his theories of synchronicity and the collective unconscious. Many astrologers followed suit and used his framework to explain the birth chart as a reflection of an individual's connection to archetypes in the collective unconscious.
