“Astrology,” in Latin, means “the science of the stars.” Astrology studies the special effects of planetary movements on individuals, groups and everyone on Earth. We feel differently about the Full Moon. We know seasons have different energies: they can make us feel blue or vibrant. The changing relationships among the Sun, the Moon, the planets and Earth influence all of us.
But astrology is more than outside influences. It is an inner map. It explains our layers of self, using 12 archetypes (main character types). For example, our Sun Sign is our daily social self, and our Ascendant is our private self. Our Moon Sign points at the personality we had in our most recent past life. We each are a mix of three archetypes! Astrology is so insightful and wise that according Carl Jung, a founding father of psychology, astrology helps modern psychology thanks to its large body of knowledge preserved since antiquity, but modern psychology has little to add to astrology!
