These days, not many people know that astrology has been used for spiritual reasons for thousand of years. As we transition into the New age, more and more are finding astrology to be very beneficial to their spiritual and mental awareness. In fact, Astrology is even used today by many psychologist. Carl Yung even wrote a book on astrology called “Yung On Astrology”. The point is, is that Astrology is something we can all learn to understand and utilize, and it is NOT in any way a curse, sin, or a hoax. Maybe you weren’t going there, but I feel like I need to justify Astrology’s righteousness for the older generations.. specifically people born between 1930-1960’s. In those years humans were wrapped all up into their religion and viewed spirituality from a very literal and linear perspective. So now that Astrology has gained acceptance in the New Aquarian age , my purpose here on earth will be accepted more and more in the years to come. Being the Channeler of the Stars, that is. Since I was 6 years old I remember having such an intuitive ability to understand zodiacs and the energy in my environment. My grandma was the very first one to introduce it to me at that time. It became a topic that I instantly became curios on. I was in Germany at the time, starting the 1st grade and I remember my grandma told me I was a Libra. When I was told that, something in my intuition sparked. I remember it like it was yesterday: It was the night before 1st grade and I sat with my self in the living room wondering what my first time in a German school would be like.. if the other kids would like me..how my teacher would react to me.. and at that moment in time it processed consciously to me that I was a Libra. In the Coming years of studying more and paying attention, I began to discover the intricate ways astrology presented itself into my reality.
So here are some of the ways that I have learned to become aware of astrological energy:
1 Accepting the Truth
Accept the truth that we are beings capable of feeling vibrational energy around us and that astral bodies do in fact affect us here on earth. Better Fact: The planetary energies only mirror the energy here on earth. As above so Below.
2 Bringing Awareness to your immediate environment
Bringing awareness to your immediate environment is not only beneficial to become an astrologer but can bring a feeling of mindfulness and peace. When we are too caught up in the past or too caught up in the future we have no space to feel connected mentally or even emotionally to our immediate reality. We almost loose awareness when our mind is clogged up with thoughts. The key to this is through meditation and mindfulness practice.
- I Challenge you to at least 5-10 minutes of meditation daily. Even a simple conscious breath can start your day off with mindfulness.
- This sudden awareness that you begin to acquire is very beneficial for studying astrology in your immediate environment.
3 Find out the Sun Signs of everyone close to you
I say SUN SIGNS because this is the start (basics) of studying astrology. If you are some one like me, then you know everyone’s birth chart LOL. Back to the point. Sun Signs represent the basic persona and character that a being portrays, it does not account for a being’s emotional nature, desires, values, or soul. Its just the basic energetic ego expression in different archetypical forms.
- There are 12 different archetypical energy expressions one can have based on which month in the year an individual is born.
- FUN FACT: The Archetypes represent a souls journey from a spiritual perspective starting from Aries (1) to Pisces (12).
So when you plug in step 1 + 2 + 3, You get an understanding of different expressions expressed in different ways. But one libra will almost have the same energy as another libra although they can and most likely will have different emotional natures, values, desires, and family upbringing. The key here is to feel for that energy when it presents it self and know what to look out for when you meet new people.
NOW if you would like to become intuitively aware of astrological energy I suggest we start again with the BASICS.
You can learn to narrow it down by understanding the elemental energy behind every zodiac/archetype.
There are 4 elements in astrology
- The Earth Element is very down to earth, practical, organized, reserved, feminine, introvert, and very connected to their physical body and their senses.
- The Fire Element is very fast, passionate, outgoing, extrovert, masculine, action oriented and sometimes loud and impulsive.
- The Air energy is very witty, intellectual, outgoing, extrovert, masculine, spacey, communicative, intuitive, logical and quirky
- The Water energy is very emotional, feminine, imaginative, reserved, introvert, and very connected to their emotions.
In fact, we all have all the elements. But that’s getting deeper into astrology which would account for me having to write a book . So lets stick to how to become aware of Sun Sign Energy… ok, ok.
- Once you have narrowed it down to the elemental energy you feel a person is giving off, you can then use the quadruplicity tool.
The quadruplicity tool puts 4 zodiacs into groups of 3.
The Fixed Signs: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius
This energy feels very fixated and stubborn. Its usually always there way or the highway. They are so secure and comfortable with stability and do not really care for change unless you are Scorpio (The sign of death and Transformation) then you get to be so fixated that you think you can control everything in the universe but then the universe controls you so the only way out is to totally transform from the darkness. HEHE
The Cardinal Signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn
This energy is takes leadership and initiates ideas, actions, duties, etc. They are the people who don’t mind taking charge and will gladly lead the way.
The Mutable Signs: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces.
This energy goes with the flow. They are more acceptable to what other people want to do and aren’t to strict when it comes to stability or leadership. They want what the people want.
So this is how you narrow it down into groups to become aware of astrological energy. Open yourself up to voice of your intuition, follow steps 1-3 and I promise you will get the hang of it and youll be guessing peoples zodiacs signs in no time! HA!
