One astrological tool to cope with problems
By Karen Elaine
When challenging times confront us it’s difficult to be positive and see them as pathways to growth. But let’s face it – adversity is life’s pencil sharpener and major set-backs often stimulate life-changing “ah-ha” moments and move us into new directions.
So how can astrology help us cope during these demanding times?
Here’s one method - simplified so you, the client, can understand…
Astrology isn’t as basic as the media portrays it to be. When you name your “star-sign”, you’re referring to the zodiac sign linked on the day of your birth to the Sun (that fiery ball in the sky). What many don’t realize is that every one of us has all the planets and all the zodiac signs playing out in our horoscopes. Our individual interpretation of these coupled with genetics and environment makes us unique.
Each zodiac sign has a planet in charge of it, called the ruler (so Mars rules Aries, Venus rules Taurus and Libra, and so on). Each planet activates specific sections of the horoscope (which is why the accurate birth time is essential to position these planetary activities correctly).
The astrologer examines the strengths and weaknesses of these planets and their relationship with each other to understand and discuss potential in the life arena that needs assistance at the time of your consultation and how to use the strengths to assist the weaknesses.
