What is the destiny of humankind? What is my own destiny?
These are only some of the questions we have been wondering about for very long. They are only piece in the puzzle of our overall existence and mysterious paths of the universe.
We still have no real answers to these questions. However, they intrigue us and move us forward; these questions inspire and motivate us all.
Maybe stars could give us some answers. Since very old times, people have been searching for clues and guidelines in the heavenly vault we see above our heads. Almost all cultures in the world associate heavens with mystical and divine forces, completely regardless of any religious or spiritual systems. They are high above, distant, and mystical.
Scientific discoveries, especially modern ones, analyzed this universe we are only a part of to the detail. Well, at least, to the detail we are capable to comprehend. There are still numerous theories about where this universe ends and is it the only reality. We do not even know if there is anyone out there, living and breathing as we do.
Planets, stars and various heavenly objects are known to have an impact over the life on our planet. Okay, that is correct, but what about our personal, intimate experiences? Do they have to do something with that?
Astrology is an old science, actually, a pseudo science, in modern terms. It tries to give us answers on a more spiritual level, beyond all the calculations and measurements of official explanations.
Astrology deals with an individual’s destiny. This not the only one way astrology ‘works’, but most of the people are interested in natal astrology. Natal astrology interprets one’s destiny, as written in the stars. It uses a birth chart as it basis. This chart is what your horoscope is based upon. Thus, a horoscope is actually an astrological analysis of a birth chart.
Birth charts are actually graphics; they are schemes that represent one moment in time, inscribed into an astrological chart, which consists of twelve houses and other important elements.
In this era of digitalized world, you can easily get your chart done online, in just few a clicks. However, it is recommended that you get a detailed analysis by an astrologer.
Astrologers make wonderful work, with analyzing birth charts. They create unique art pieces, because they have to put great effort and dedication into only one birth chart. Birth charts of individual’ people are, well, individual and therefore, unique.
According to astrology, the day you were born on determines your destiny.
Let us go a bit further. The birth chart represents all elements that are of value in astrology, distributed over those twelve astrological houses, of which each one represents one particular area of an individual’s life (for example, a house related to career and finances, a house related to family and marriage and so on). Signs of the zodiac circle are also extremely important.
Planets are especially important; at the time a person was born, planets were positioned in a special way. Astrological planets are all planets of the Solar system, including the Sun and the Moon and some other heavenly bodies.
Five of the planets are called ‘personal planets’, because they determine personal traits and temperament of the person in question.
There are also ‘social planets’, related to one’s perception of the wider society and their place within it. The last, but not the least important are transpersonal planets, of which we are going to talk about more. Neptune, the planet we are going to talk about today, is one of these transpersonal or transcendental planets. They are also called ‘modern’ planets.
Transpersonal planets are Neptune, Uranus and Pluto. They are also called modern planets, because they were discovered in eighteen century. This does not sound that ‘modern’, but have in mind that all other, classical planets, were known millennia of years ago. In ancient astrology, Neptune, Uranus and Pluto were not known as astrological planets.
Simply, ancient astrologers could not see they are there.
They are called transpersonal because they are astrologically related to personal planets; they represent something as an echo, as a higher degree of personal planets. Unlike personal planets that move pretty fast and change zodiac signs frequently, transpersonal planets travel slowly.
Personal planets affect individuals, while transpersonal planets affect whole generations of people.
Transpersonal planets are somewhat difficult to understand. On one side, they are associated with the collective and with everything that is happening on a wider, bigger plan.
On the other hand, it is of essential importance to understand their over-personal nature; their energy is associated with what is a higher level of each individual’s existence. This higher level of conscience is unreachable to common people.
It is, thus, believed, transpersonal planets are related to deeper meanings and essential purposes of things that happen, of all situations. You know how hard it is to get to the point of great questions, such as, for example, questions related to your own purpose of life.
Transpersonal planets are believed to keep such deep, meaningful information.
