What is astrology?

Astrology translates from Greek to the language of the stars. It is based on the mysterious resonance between heaven and earth and the study of the planetary influence on events and our personalities. Thousands of years ago, men observing the sky noticed that there were relations between what seems to be written in the sky and what happens on earth.

We therefore all have a birth chart, which is a symbolic language that tells you about the connection between the image of the sky at the time of your birth and your unconscious mind. Through astrology, we try to see where there are problems, understand their origins and see the effects they have on us.

Astrology allows us to update the image of our unconscious so that we can use our free will and evolve in the right direction.

7 Reasons why we are hooked on astrology

1) It’s become easy to follow

Astrology has become even more accessible over the last few years, with predictions readily available online from thousands of sources. Nowadays, they act as a mixture of fascination, truth and distraction for avid fans. 

2) It’s inspiring and reassuring

The main basis of this art allows us to establish a link between ourselves and the planets, and to think that we have a fate, a destiny. They also reassure us and reduce the part of risk inherent to life. Within the predictions, we are all looking for luck, happiness and opportunity. It also helps us rationalize certain fears and situations. For example, if everything is going badly, some say it's down to Mercury retrograde.

3) It brings about exciting evolutions

This success of astrology isn’t exactly recent. Over 2500 years ago, the Babylonians made the first horoscopes, which were then used by Kings to make political decisions. Although zodiac signs no longer correspond to astronomical signs, there has been speculation about a recent shift and even the introduction of a 13th sign known as Ophiuchus.

4) It gives us a sense of belonging

This practice connects us to the universe and the stars. It makes us feel unique by offering us descriptions that seem individualized, and at the same time makes us belong to a cosmic whole. We are also proud of the signs we are born under, and the character descriptions associated with it.

5) It teaches us about ourselves

Through our sun, moon and rising signs, we pick up information about ourselves. These signs act as a guide of our strengths and our weaknesses, as well as our likes and dislikes. Our behavior can also be put down to astrology too. For example, if someone’s a sore loser, then they are probably an Aries. Or if they spend too much time at work, then perhaps they are a Capricorn.

6) It gives meaning to our relationships

Do you remember that ex-Gemini who broke your heart? Well, you have your answer, it’s because he was too much of a party animal for you. Astrology reveals more about the people around you and your interactions with their characters. Keep this in mind, and you’ll notice that you are often attracted to the same signs, or at least people of the same zodiac element groups.

7) It enlightens our path

Okay, so your pragmatic side probably wants you to ask yourself; how can the position of one or two planets have an impact on who I am? And that's the difference between science and belief. We are tempted to believe in astrology because we find a certain comfort in, as well as an answer to our needs, we all know. These needs include finding one's place in society, finding love and being recognized.

Susan Taylor’s insights: There's something for everyone

Astrology proposes something very seductive at the end of the tunnel. Indeed, this art form allows us to obtain information about one's future, to be reassured about what’s ahead, to be comforted in one's choices, and to be guided in one's future decisions.

 If you have questions about your future, if you need answers, don't hesitate to make an appointment with one of our psychics. They will enlighten you about your future with great attention.
