Most of us have at least once asked, what’s the meaning of my life, my purpose? This is somewhat difficult to answer, but today I want you to consider looking through a different lens. How can we understand and navigate our life through astrology?
People look for the answers to their life through different means. Some its spirituality or religion. For some it is held within the beauty of nature. Some travel and see different places and cultures. Some people find it in their hard work and career achievements.
However, some people wander around wondering what their purpose is in this life time and why they have certain tendencies and habits.
So, how can the use of astrology give us some answers? This blog will attempt to give you a glimpse into basic astrology and hopefully answer questions about your life and its purpose.
Learn about your natal chart (horoscope) and the meaning of life.
The day and time you were born can tell you many things about yourself. By studying the natal chart, we can learn about our personal history, and why we exhibit certain traits in this incarnation.
Our birth chart is like a map that shows us the road we are traveling on during this lifetime.
Learn about transits through astrology readings.
If you are interested in learning more about astrology, then it’s important to pay attention to transits.
But what are transits and how do they relate to astrology readings? And how can they help you understand the meaning of life?
Transits are a way of understanding how the planets and other celestial bodies in the universe interact with each other. By understanding these interactions, you can better understand your relationships with others, as well as yourself.
When it comes to astrology, there are a few different types of transits. The first is called a “natal chart” or “natal chart reading.” This is a chart that shows where the planets were when you were born. It also shows their relative positions at that time, which influences your personality traits, strengths and weaknesses.
Another type of transit is known as a solar return or planetary return chart. These charts show where the planets were on your birthday every year for the rest of your life.
The third type of transit is called a solar arc chart. This type of astrology reading uses the same information from a natal chart reading but shows it from another perspective. It’s similar to looking at a map from above instead of looking at it from eye level.
The Aspects & Nodes
There are many ways to view your natal chart and interpret the meanings of the planets and signs as they play out through the aspects. One of the most basic ways is to look at planets in conjunction (very close), trine (120 degrees apart), square (90 degrees) and opposite (180 degrees). Trines and conjunctions are considered easy or harmonious aspects and squares and oppositions, difficult or challenging.
For example, if you were born with Sun in Gemini and Moon in Scorpio, you have a Sun-Moon opposition which is a very difficult aspect. This can be reduced by being in a location of the world where the Sun is transiting or has recently transited your natal Moon sign – in this case Scorpio. This would be one way to reduce your Sun-Moon opposition.
Astrology readings, which use your natal chart as well as transits and progressions, can help you learn about your own energy and the path that you’re on, which can help you understand your life’s purpose.
A natal chart reading is like a portrait of your soul. It shows the energies that you brought into this lifetime and what paths you’ve chosen to walk in order to grow, heal and learn.
