One of the biggest obstacles I find in the people who refuse to acknowledge the idea of astrology as a legitimate tool for self and social study, is their diehard fixation on cause and effect. The work of all astrologers is quite sophisticated and involves all of our cylinders running to interpret. We observe patterns on a range of levels and the interplay of energy that has been availed to us through years of study. And some of us have become successful at it, to the point of assisting people with major breakthroughs in reaching a state of improved consciousness about their life and how they live.
In short, astrologers look at and share patterns representing energetic tendencies and elements and the interplay of these and how the sky signals (as opposed to causes) these in an “as above, so below” capacity. It’s a different way of thinking, and yet it is not so unfamiliar to any scientist—we are constantly collecting and reworking data sets based on new charts, new experiences and breakthrough after breakthrough with our own charts, reflections and those of clients.
Approximately every two days, the moon finds itself in a new Zodiac sign. It shifts through the elements: fire, earth, air and water. The moon travels though one entire cycle of the Zodiac roughly once per lunar month.
Our resonance with the moon’s energy may differ because we all are in a relative relationship with the moon, due to our very own moon sign and overall astrological chart. Observe how the energy of the moon in different signs tickles your own chart.
