Astrology: the Ancient form of Psychology
Mar 27, 2023

Reading time less than 1 minute

Astrology is the oldest form of psychology as it deals with the underlying energies of the reasons for our actions, attitudes and responses. This ancient knowledge has lost its merit somewhat through the development of the logical and linear mindset of western society. Viewed and judged from the Sun sign only has also devalued its wisdom and purpose. Fortunately there have been those who, from a deep curiosity, delve into this fascinating subject. Each serious astrologer has added their own insights for others to gain deeper wisdom. As we evolve, so does our understanding of this higher knowledge.

Viewed from the logical mind, astrology makes little sense, after all how can the planets affect our lives? However, the planets are symbols of our psychological drives, which we as human beings all share. We all, for example, have feelings and emotions, which are shown through the Moon. We all have Mars, our assertive energy, to fulfill our desires. Our need to communicate and learn is symbolized by Mercury. The Birth Chart is a diagram of where each planet was placed at the moment of our birth. The sign, house and aspect to each planet gives a picture of our inner psychological energy patterns, which needs to be understood from a wider perspective. However, it also needs to make practical sense, in other words bringing astrology down to earth! The Birth Chart shows the underlying cause of the effects we create in our lives. The main benefit is in the insight it gives in the development of the uniqueness of each individual. What a tool this can be!!

**The Birth Chart is a Tool we need to use! **

The Birth Chart is a tool we can use to understand not only ourselves but life more fully. Self Awareness gives a smoother ride to change; otherwise it can seem like fate alone rules our destiny. Used in therapy this can zoom into the problems that could take weeks or months to uncover. It brings in another perspective and gives greater insight into a problem or situation. Understanding our inner drives and how our attitudes and thought forms are established can help in dealing with our lives. How these create our life and from this knowledge how we can learn to work with our energy patterns. After all, isn’t this what psychology is all about?

Carl Jung included the spiritual dimension into his work, hence stretching man’s consciousness. He knew and used astrology, combining it well with psychology. As we grow and evolve in consciousness I do believe astrology will retain its status and more so its value and usefulness. Used for self-understanding and to create harmony within ourselves will indeed expand our conscious awareness. This is the gift of this ancient psychology.

What do the stars have to say for you? Are you curious to go more in depth into your personal planet placements and learn what that means for your life trajectory? Sometimes we act unconsciously, and struggle with certain issues because we do not have clarity on our true natures and the influences we were born into. I would be happy to provide an analysis about your character, the areas you are weak and or strong in, your hidden powers, and what your soul purpose is.

I need your name, date of birth, time of birth and place of birth.

An insightful and illuminating read, delving into your Western Astrology planetary placements will open up many avenues to learn and explore about yourself. I look forward to working with you!

Astrological Coaching and Reiki Healing Session

During a one-to-one session with me we will look at areas of your life which require healing, balance and development. Prior to the session you will be asked to send me your time, date and place of birth, along with a couple of questions you wish to focus upon.

This way I can spend some time preparing your astrological chart and look at where you are born to excel in life and areas which need a little more support and nurture.

I will also tell you what your unique soul path is and how to ‘tune in’ to this to feel more balanced, happy and fulfilled.

I specialise in healing and emotional cleansing. During a session with me you will receive reiki healing whilst we are on the video link and I will provide a 15 minute follow up distance reiki, at a time of your convenience.

After this I will send you a report with notes from our reading; tips on how to improve your health, one or two bach flower remedies which will support your growth and some manifestation / affirmation exercises to work on.

That way the knowledge, emotional healing and cleansing that you receive from me will continue on into the future.

Reiki blessings to you.
