We all want to know if our life path is going to be paved with golden cobles or with thorns; we all want to know if we are meant to be happily married, to have family of our own, to be loved and cared for.
At least, every one of us asks such questions from time to time, especially in crisis, in times of making big decisions and changes. We ask these out of pure curiosity or out of our insecurity about the future.
It is in our nature to wonder and to wander. There are never straightforward answers, visible paths and instant solutions, of course. For a great part, this uncertainty is what makes our lives vibrant, exciting and dynamic.
Although there are times when we desire to know everything, it is impossible. However, people have always been trying to find answers. They search for answer is, perhaps, the essence of our lives as thinking beings.
Numerous paths try to come up to these answers. Astrology is one of them. Astrology is a pseudo science, established on serious and complex set of rules, principles and methodology.
In old times, it was much more appreciated and all great figures of power would always consult their astrologers on serious matters that decide the future of the whole population, country, army or nation.
In fact, it was in later times that astrology became common amongst people in general. In old era, astrology was identified with astronomy and many great scholars of the past were astrologers, amongst other things they did. There were historical times in which astrology was banned and considered an evil dark, work.
Western astrology is only one of astrological paths in the world. It is based upon the knowledge of Solar system and it has been in use for long. Western modern astrology counts all known planets of the Solar system, with the Sun and the Moon and additional heavenly bodies, such as the planetoid Chiron.
Most of the people are interested in one particular branch of astrology and that is natal astrology.
Natal astrology deals with an individual’s destiny, as written in the skies, meaning it studies the position of planets as they were at the time the person in question was born.
This is all represented in a birth chart, which is basically something like your heavenly identification card. It shows the image of the sky exactly as it was at the precise date, time, longitude and latitude of your birth.
Personal Planets – The Luminaries
Now, this personalized chart shows many things. One of the most important are planets; actually, they are essence of your birth chart. Planets in a natal chart are distributed over the Zodiac circle, placed in houses and matching signs. They make unique relations amongst one another and with other elements in a chart. This makes a complex image that is unique for each person.
However, unique is the way this chart is going to manifest in reality. This is where you join in.
An astrologer would tell you where your planets stand and what does it astrologically mean, but you are the one to use the information. Planetary position reveals your potentials and that of your astrological destiny in total, but it depends on you what will actually happen.
Birth chart is a basis of your astrological destiny. Planets in a birth chart reveal many important things about who you are, as a person and as a part of the collective. They describe the way you react to things around, of what nature you are, how you deal with things in life, what are your advantages and disadvantages and beyond.
The most important are so called ‘personal planets’. They are the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars and they are, to say so, your defining planets. Places they occupy in a natal chart define the person as an individual with all its qualities.
It is very important to see in which houses they are, in which signs and what aspects they create.
The two of these personal planets are the Luminaries, the Sun and the Moon. They are not planets, technically; the Sun being a star and the Moon being a satellite. However, astrology counts them as planets and also the most important ones.
The Sun is your active self, your Ego, you as you are in reality, you as seen around. The Sun is of masculine nature, warm, fiery and stable.
The Moon, of which we are going to talk more, is the layer behind the first one. It is your inner voice, sub-conscious mind, emotional self; the Moon is feminine, wet and cold. The two of the Luminaries cannot be without one another, as seen in astrological analyses.
They are, in the most simplified way, your reason and your emotions, combined and complementary.
Moon and Horoscope
The Moon has always fascinated us, in every sense possible. If we are to focus on astrology and related disciplines and paths, we have to mention that there are astrological systems that base upon the Moon’s journey through the universe, not that of the Sun.
There are lunar systems of measuring time, lunar astrology and more.
All of this leads us to conclusion that the Moon has always been playing an important role in our lives; symbolical, actual and spiritual one. We know that the Moon is closely related to the ‘behavior’ of waters on the Earth.
Symbolically, the Moon is wet and associated with the element of Water. In astrology, it rules over the sign of Cancer, which is a Water element sign.
The Water, as an element is associated with emotions, because waters are flowing, ever changing, transforming, deep, powerful and mysterious, all at the same time. The Moon in astrology represents one’s emotional, sensing, feeling self. The Moon is about impressions that constitute as beings.
It is related to the idea of past, which is why the Moon is also associated with nostalgia, melancholy, remembrance.
The Moon is associated with femininity and motherhood; it is the planet of feminine energy, the planet of mothers and women in general. In a birth chart, it represents a feminine aspect. In men horoscopes, it usually represents the mother or a wife of the man in question. It represents his nature, as well as.
The Moon is associated with mood swings, instability, turbulence, childish and youthful spirit.
The place the Moon sits in your birth chart is of vital importance, because it defines you as an emotional being. It determines the way you react to impressions that come from the world around. The Moon is associated with communication on some special level, not the open communication with which Mercury is identified.
The Moon is more about connections you create with the world and the people around you.
