Astrological symbols – Their Origin and Meaning
Introduction to astrological symbols
Astrology is classed as a “pseudo-science” by the US National Science Board. It is an ancient discipline accompanying the human being in his search for meaning. Human beings have tracked the objects in the sky for thousands of years. The most likely object to be tracked first was the sun. Knowing the motion of the sun helped our ancestors plant their crops at the correct times, which is essential to survival. They also realised particular star patterns in the sky appear at different times in the year. By dividing the night sky up into certain patterns or objects called constellations, they could use the sky to navigate. As technology has progressed so have humans understanding of the sun, moon and planets. Astrological symbols were created as a way of understanding objects seen in the sky. Each planet has a particular symbol allocated to it. Also constellations that follow the sun apparent ecliptic path were allocated symbols, and split into 12 segments such as Aries and Taurus.
Astrology is practiced by astrologers looking for correlations between people and celestial bodies outside our planet. To interpret these, the astrological symbols of the zodiac is used, which is commonly called a horoscope. A horoscope is a circular chart split into 12 separate constellation called zodiac signs. The sun, moon and planets are then plotted on this chart for a particular time and location. The chart represents where celestial bodies are in the sky at a given time, from the point of view here on earth. Each astrological symbol on a chart has a different meaning. Each express certain personality or character traits. According to Astrology our choices, behavioral characteristics, attitudes and relationships are linked with movements of the sun, moon and planets.

An astrology chart is very popular for personality readings as they give highly accurate results. Plus they can represent many aspects of life which are of importance in astrological readings. An astrology chart is based on the universe map with the person or object to be studied placed at the center of this map. In order to gain the required level of insight into a person’s potential and personality, an astrology chart must be constructed based on the time as well as the location in which the particular person was born. This implies that astrology charts are highly diverse and is very rare for different people to share similar aspects when it comes to development of the charts.

Studying and Learning Astrology
Astrology is simply identified as a language of the stars but in its deeper sense, it is a fascinating, serious, complex and incredibly rewarding subject. Some people consider astrology to be a simple language that is used to define the energies which make up the universe while others describe it as the observation of different planets and the specific patterns of energy that they create at any given moment. Modern astrology, however, has emerged with the concept that humans are microsoms of the universe, and can be understood better through the study of energy patterns in the universe. If learning astrology is something you want to do, then it may take a lot of work to understand it.

I have many years experience in astrology, first studying it when I were 16 years old. Throughout the years I have advanced my knowledge in astrology. Especially in the areas of natal, synastry and predictive astrology. I have always been fascinated by how astrology works, especially when I receive excellent feedback from astrology readings I have done.
