While sun-sign astrology is frequently looked down upon by many serious astrologers and astrology students I find it to be extremely informative and surprisingly correct. Mundane astrology which looks at the astrological configurations of the world is based on using significators. Much of the delineation is used with these significators and as such you see people of the world acting en mass. Sun sign in a sense has the same quality. While we all know that the sun sign will apply to many Libras or Sages,for example, it inexplicably also makes sense to the individual. There is nothing more specific in the divinatory arts than delineation or predictive astrology. And in a personal reading, when the client gives you 3 pertinent details:date, time and place of birth, then you can say more than you know.
The future is fluid and much relies on our choices and the rationale for having a reading is well described, as the adage goes, “ forewarned is forearmed”. Humans, like other mammals act in according to their nature. And this pattern is predictable.
We all share concern for our family, for our health, our wealth, our love, our partner,our pets, our career, our friends and so on. This is what underscores the philosophical idea that we are all human, all the same at the core of our being, from the same tribe and therefore the biblical adage: “Love thy brother as thy self”, rings true. How can we not? After all each of us is basically seeking the same confirmations in life.We seek abundance, try and have a happy life, we all seek out “Soul mate ( altho’ that may only exist in Heaven!).We love our children and raise them to be successful independent adults, take care of our health, consume ourselves in a job we can stand behind that has a purpose and we have passion for and provides us with enough to support ourselves and those we love.. Life is the struggle we all share. we are truly in this together and so we can clearly see that what makes us human is also what makes other guy human as well. . We can but love one another as ourselves. If we could really apply this understanding, and I feel Canada does embody this ethos, the world would be a more peaceful, tolerant and loving place.Have a super and Happy Summer!
