Planets and stars are long known to have great impact over our life on earth. The ‘music of the spheres’ affects life on our own planet and there have been various theories, as well as discoveries, about what roles do planets and other heavenly objects play in our lives.
Astrology goes beyond what we might call scientific discoveries, although it is also ‘scientific’ in nature.
Its name means the ‘science of the stars’. Yet, astrology is called pseudo science and it is not an official discipline. Here are some rather interesting facts about astrology that might surprise you.
Astrology is old. Western astrology we know and practice today comes from ancient Persia and it is as old as several thousands of years. Its birthday is unknown, but we know it is about three millennia old.
Who was one of the most famous astrologers of all times? It was Nostradamus, known for his prophecies all around the world. According to some interpretations, Nostradamus predicted some of the most striking events in the worlds’ history. Another notable astrologer of the past was Johannes Kepler, famous astronomer and mathematician.
It is also interesting to note that some of historical heads of the Catholic church of the past were much interested in astrology. Some of the Popes used astrological methods in order to determine the favorable dates for their crowing ceremony or else. Many other notable figures of the past practiced astrology or relied on astrological interpretations.
Astrology was one of the established methods for deciding whether you should start a battle or not, for example. Today, people use their personal horoscopes and change the geographical place in it so to discover the part of the world that could be particularly favorable.
Personal horoscopes are based on one’s birth chart. To create a birth chart, an astrologer needs your place of birth, date and time.
If you change only the place, you could see how it ‘fits’ with your other astrological characteristics. This is just one of the possibilities astrology offers (no one claims this is one hundred percent accurate prediction).
Speaking of predictions, it is important to mention that your horoscope is not fortunetelling.
Horoscopes show opportunities and possibilities, not the exact course of events, as one could think. For example, a generalized horoscope you can read for your zodiac sign is definitely not something to rely on, because it is, well, too generalized.
Detailed horoscopes are based on your personal data, so they offer more precious info. Information a horoscope offers is guiding, not determining.
Saturn and Horoscope
You see, your birth chart features important elements such as planets and zodiac signs, placed in a special diagram, divided into twelve houses of which each one represents an area of an individual’s life.
All these elements create a complex and unique image. They correspond with a real image of the sky at the time a person was born.
An astrologer interprets hidden meanings of this complex heavenly art piece. This is not an easy task to do and we could look upon astrological analysis as both a science and art. It requires detailed understanding of physical and mathematical laws, but also great knowledge of pure astrology, understanding of all its elements and more.
It is art, because one has to connect all of these elements and create a unique image that shapes up the reality of one unique human being, including his or hers personal traits, temperament and character.
Planets are very important in terms of astrological analysis. Planets occupy specific positions in your birth chart and create various types of connections with other elements.
Astrological planets are all planets of our Solar system, including some other heavenly bodies that belong to it and the Moon and the Sun. Today, we focus on so-called ‘social planets’ that are Jupiter and Saturn. We focus on Saturn. Social planets are related to your relations with the world around you, meaning your social world.
These planets have lesser personal impact on one’s birth chart and they affect the whole generation, for example. Saturn travels slowly and spends two and a half year in one sign, meaning people born during this time will have Saturn in this or that sign. While Jupiter is related to growth and expansion, Saturn is related to limitations and responsibility.
Saturn is an interesting, but not as pleasing element of one’s birth chart. Its energy is heavy, insensitive, very cold and dry. It is the planet of restriction and limits, of inhibition and boundaries. Saturn is a teacher, but one that would play with your sense of responsibility, duty and self-awareness.
It is called the planet of karma, because Saturn is very efficient in pointing out how your decisions and actions make consequences.
Saturn helps you learn from your own experience, regardless of it is good or bad; actually, it focuses on negative experiences and people often think of Saturn as planet that brings only darkness, misery and misfortune. Saturn is associated with old age, illness, chronic pains, depression, burden, discipline.
It is the planet that inspires the sense of purpose and it guided by rational thinking. This planet makes one focused, determined, ambitious, but hard and cold. Saturn always brings some heavy energy around and it brings challenges. Everything Saturn brings along is lasting, difficult, slow.
People do not like it and it takes really great aspects for one to understand this heavy energy and accept it as some kind of gift. Saturn is associated with maturity, responsibility, excellent memory, the ability to learn, patience, diligence, hard work, persistence and perseverance.
Saturn rules Capricorn and now we are going to find out how it manifests when found in Aquarius.
The place of Saturn in a natal chart is important to understand, because it could help you understand all the troubles coming your way and find the most suitable way to deal with it and even make some use of it.
