For centuries, humans have looked to the heavens for guidance to help guide their journey!
Astrology can be a wonderful tool for self-knowledge. It’s a symbolic language that can help you understand yourself, your relationships, and the nature of your path in life.
Astrology also illuminates the phase or cycle that you are in at any particular time. The perspective offered by reflecting on your astrological chart can help you glean meaning and purpose from what is unfolding in your life, or in your own nature.

There are a few fundamental parts of getting a reading. Things like where the Sun, Moon are and what the Rising Sign is, starts to tell the story of ones chart.
The zodiac sign the Sun was in the moment you were born (your Sun sign) reflects your sense of purpose and how you’re meant to shine in the world. Your Moon sign reflects your emotional nature, natural instincts, reactions, and your mystery.
Your rising sign, or ascendant, is the zodiac sign that was rising on the eastern horizon at the moment you were born. Your rising sign reflects the way you spontaneously approach life.
Musing About The Stars
“I think that almost as a counterbalance to the fact that we live in such a quantifiable and meticulously organized world, there is a desire to connect to and tap into that numinous part of ourselves,
I see astrology as a language of symbols that describes those parts of the human experience that we don’t necessarily have equations and numbers and explanations for.”
“The basic meaning of the horoscope is that, by mapping out the positions of the planets and their relations to one another (aspects), together with the distribution of the signs of the zodiac at the cardinal points, it gives a picture first of the psychic and then of the physical constitution of the individual.
It represents, in essence, a system of original and fundamental qualities in a person’s character.”
I first became interested in Astrology when I arrived in Boulder, CO in the late 1980’s by way of the book, Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs. I’ve always been a curious kid, so I read it and something about the way she described the timeless energies of life manifesting through the signs of the zodiac was so compelling!
I then started to ask my friends what their signs were and tried to puzzle out if they fit into the image of their astrology signs. What I discovered mostly seemed to match and when it didn’t I would scratch my head and wonder what the heck that meant.
Later I had a friend print out my chart and they gave me a reading, which was also compelling, but also a bit confusing. There was so much information to try and assimilate and it was definitely over my head. So being the curious kid that I am, I found some more astrology books and started reading. I also once again started asking my friends about their birthdays, bu this time I also asked them what time they born and where they where born.
Slowly, but surely it started to make sense and and I read more books and took some Astrology classes and my love for this somewhat exoteric art form began to really grow.
