Astrology, in common tongue, is usually identified with what we know as horoscope or, more precisely, personal horoscope.
You have to admit that your own destiny and that of those you care for is of much more of interest to you than that of the wider population and humankind in total. It may sound a bit egocentric, while, in fact, each one of us is just a piece of mosaic in overall humanity.
The ‘science of stars’ is ancient. Origins of Western astrology lie far back in the past and are associated with old Persia. Different astrological paths developed in other parts of the world. Chinese, Japanese, Tibetan and Vedic astrology are all great and old astrological systems, worth of every admiration. In past, astrology was not that common amongst ordinary people.
It was reserved for royal courts and everything that has to do with matters of an empire.
Great leaders and rulers of the past have much relied on their astrologers predictions.
Notable kings and generals would always consult a royal astrologer in order to organize their forces and determine the most favorable time to start a war campaign, for example.
Today, astrology is rarely consulted to give answers on such big questions and it is not considered a ‘real’ discipline, but a pseudo science. However, we have to bear in mind that astrology has been in use for thousands of years and that it has its methodology, criteria, rules and features all elements of a scientific approach. Astrology is abundant in all sorts of paths and knowledge; it has many branches.
We are interested in natal astrology, which is related to personal horoscope.
Personal horoscope or a birth chart relies on the principle of heavenly aspects’ influence over an individual’s life and destiny. Birth chart is represented in a form of diagram, which is actually an image of sky at the time someone was born. An astrologer would create a personalized birth chart based on the exact time, date and place of birth.
This diagram features a complex of astrological elements. The essential elements in a birth chart are planets and zodiac signs. Their positions, relations and unique image they create determine a person’s destiny. If you wonder whether astrology can answer all questions, the answer to that particular question depends on many factors.
First of all, it depends on what kind of answers you except. Second, it is very important to consider all the possibilities that astrology, as a discipline, has to offer.
Last, but not the least important, it depends on expertise, practice and experience of an astrologer, both as a theoretician and a practitioner of astrology. Answers are both yes and no.
Venus and Horoscope
An astrologer would analyze your birth chart and he or she would pay special attention to position of planets there. To return for a brief moment to the matter of questions and answers – the astrologer would tell you what potential, capacities and possibilities are there for you.
No astrologer would ever tell you this or that will definitely happen in your life.
Planetary position in a natal chart gives us certain potentials. It depends on a much bigger picture and on many other important details in a birth chart how one particular potential is going to develop in an individual case.
