As we enter the Age of Aquarius, if you haven’t googled your astrological birth chart, this may convince you to learn about the relationship you have with the stars. People are starting to see themselves and the world a whole lot clearer. Humanity is at the brink of a new frontier. Studying the planets and how their vibrations affect us psychologically could unlock some of our most highly anticipated answers to our deep life questions. The cosmos can help us understand why we do what we do, our subconscious motivations, and the evolution of our species. Astrology helps us connect the celestial dots and make sense of this paradoxical human experience we call life. These are a few benefits of becoming more familiar with your astrological profile.
1. Know Thyself
To fully love yourself, you need to uncover all the aspects that make you who you are. This is a lifelong process, since we are constantly changing and transforming. The intricacies of ourselves as individuals are unfathomable for our limited minds to process. This is how your astrological birth chart can help. Astrological profiles are the user manuals for navigating life in the most authentic way possible. It is your cheat sheet. Astrology can show you your potential, highest timeline, as well as the shadow sides to your personality. As you learn about yourself, you begin to see all the beautiful pieces that create the mosaic of you.
2. Understand Everything Is Connected
We are all made of stardust… just ask astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson. At least 99% of the universe is made up of oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, and nitrogen. All of these elements are found in every cell of your body. Just as the moon creates the tides in the ocean, two-thirds of our bodies are composed of water. We are not separate from nature, we are nature. The movement of the planetary bodies in our solar system affects every human being. Astrology can help us better understand how we fit into the bigger picture of life and how nature is related to our individual lives.
3. It’s All About Patterns
Tesla, Fibonacci, and Pythagoras all had a life philosophy in common: They understood at the heart of life it’s all about patterns. The universal law of correspondence, known commonly “as above, so below,” states that our microcosm, or individual self, is a reflection of the macrocosmic multiverse. By recognizing these patterns, you can better understand your relationships and life lesson themes. Astrology is the roadmap that can help you notice the characteristics of these patterns and make connections that will improve your quality of life.
4. Improve Relationships
In the words of author Joseph Campbell, “You can only understand people if you feel them in yourself.” By diving into astrology, you may find that you are able to relate to people because you have a greater capacity for understanding. As you realize which energies flow with your own, you can more easily avoid those potential toxic relationships or know which bestie to call when it all hits the fan. You will become better at reading people and their energy.
5. Self-Fulfilling Prophecy
I saved the best for last. This epiphany has been the most life-changing part of studying astrology. If you are confused about your life path, uncertain of your natural talents, or just need a nudge in the right direction, look up your chart! A self-fulfilling prophecy is essentially predicting or expecting something that eventually comes true because you believed that it would. If you discover your astrological chart has amazing life events in store or that you were sleeping on some latent talent this whole time, it can be the fire under your booty to pursue that passion of yours ASAP. So look up your stars and chase that dream you’ve always wanted!
