I have no expertise when it comes to astrology, but as a student who attended presentations and have had readings done by an expert astrologer, I can share some amazing experiences that have happened to me. When I researched astrology online, I found the following definition in Wikipedia which is that Astrology is a pseudoscience that claims to divine information about human affairs and terrestrial events by studying the movements and relative positions of celestial objects. A more Christian conservative website stated that astrology is a forfeit of one’s freedom by allowing lifeless, unintelligent stars and planets to dictate a person’s life, likes, dislikes, personality and even determining how one should behave. That last description seems pretty closeminded and judgmental to me. My opinion is that astrology is a communications tool between Spirit and us, using the sun, the moon, and the planets. And from the demonstrations that I’ve attended, it was conveyed to me that while astrology can be used to predict the future, the future is malleable and ours to determine. However, we can use this information to our advantage.
Before the pandemic, there were monthly lectures on astrology at the bookstore. Not only were they informative, but they were also a lot of fun, and at the end of each presentation, we each drew Tarot cards, and she would interpret their meaning to us. The psychic abilities of the reader became readily apparent as she often described our situations and what avenues we should pursue. Her intuition was amazing. The one talk that stuck out to me was that in 2019, she mentioned that Pluto was returning to the position where it was at in 1776 when the USA was formed. It takes 248 years for Pluto to orbit the sun. So, it will complete the orbit in 2022. She said that as a result, the USA will be facing a similar crisis as it did in 1776 as far as being a democratic republic. Based on what happened this past year, with the assault on our democracy, she was right.
I went to the same reader to get our astrological charts read for my immediate family when my granddaughter was born, and then four years later when my grandson was born. It was a lot of fun and I had them recorded so that the other family members could hear them. According to our zodiac signs and birthdates, she was able to correctly match our personality traits. I know that some horoscopes are generic enough so that they can fit anybody, but she was very specific about each one of us, and she was right on. The best part was that she forecasted the behavior of our little Leo granddaughter and her “Shirley Temple” demeanor which has greatly helped her parents with their childrearing of her. So far, her prognostic indicator of our Aires grandson being a “little emperor” have been on the mark. At the last reading, she identified past actions that we actually experienced, and then predicted events in the future that would happen for each of us. Some of those have occurred in the timeframes that she specified, just like what she said. Having astrological readings are a lot of fun, and they are even more fun when they are accurate and true. There are some excellent books in the bookstore on learning Astrology, and based on what I’ve experienced, astrology is something that I will definitely look into.
