Most people only know about astrology from the horoscope columns they read in newspapers and magazines. I remember, as a teenager, racing through the New Idea to find the horoscope section. But, those forecasts are for entertainment purposes only and should never be taken seriously.
If they seem even remotely accurate, rest assured it is only by coincidence, because those columns have almost no bearing on the legitimate practice of astrology. If you’re looking for a more legitimate source, there are stacks of astrologers on Twitter. Here are a few other myths about astrology that should also be dispelled:
1. Astrology is not a religion, nor is it afliated or associated with any religion or with satanism or with any specic belief system. You can believe in and participate in any religion you choose and still practice astrology.
2. Astrology is about symbolism and has nothing to do with any purported physical energy emanating from a planet, moon, or star.
3. Astrology cannot be used to predict an event, only the possibility of an event occurring, or a good time for a particular type of event to take place.
4. Astrology is only a guide, a map of the potential in your life. However, no two people born at the exact same time and place will have the exact same life. The very nature of astrology speaks to your exercise of “free will” and the many choices and options you have for how you live your life.
For me, astrology is just that – a brilliant guide that I keep in the back of my mind. I doomscroll Twitter in the morning, take what I need, and move on with my day. I’m often surprised at what comes to pass, and how I use this information to make my decisions.
How about you? Do you use astrology? What has it helped you with in life? Drop me a line in the comments section, I’d love to hear from you.
