The best clock and timetable we have is our own beautiful planet, seen as a part of both known and unknown vast space we call universe.
Since old times, people have been studying the stars, in order somehow to unravel the mystery of our own existence.
Why are we here? What is the purpose of our existence?
Ancient observers of the skies, the first astronomers and astrologers were assured stars and planets we see from Earth have great impact upon overall known existence.
If the whole planet we live on is exposed to immense influence of the cosmos and elements found there, including planets, stars and other heavenly bodies and forces of the universe, what happens with something as small as a human being?
Humankind has been trying to reveal this since the dawn of time . Despite all of our technological advancement, we still have so much to discover.
There are always mysteries all our scientific discoveries and inventions cannot interpret and explain. Here we come to more mystical or pseudo sciences, such as astrology. While back into past, astrology was identified with astronomy, today it is labeled as a ‘pseudo’ science.
Nevertheless, it offers precious information on subjects in which official sciences fail.
One of the most interesting branches of astrology (which is, indeed, a vast area of numerous approaches to understanding the world) is definitely natal astrology. You certainly know about, at least, some basics about what birth charts and horoscopes are.
In fact, these are the same; each individual could have their birth chart or personal horoscope delivered and interpreted by an astrology expert.
This chart shows everything that relates to a life of an individual, his or hers defining traits, qualities, flaws and many more. It shows favorable and unfavorable cosmic aspects in a person’s life.
A horoscope, contrary to popular belief, does not say this or that would happen in your future, but it helps you see opportunities and show potentials you have.
