Astrology is a symbolic system that offers both spiritual and practical guidance in supporting one’s chosen life path. As a science, astrology uses precise calculations of planetary positions and relationships in the creating of our birth charts. As an art, it involves intuition and perception in the interpretation of a birth chart as it relates to your individual personal experience.

Astrologers believe that the positions of celestial bodies at the exact time and location of your birth influences an individual’s personality traits and potential life path. The Sun sign reflects core identity, the Moon sign relates to emotional life and inner self, and the positions of other planets offer additional nuances.

Therefore, in the eyes of some, astrology suggests certain predispositions and potentials in a person’s character and life journey, however, many astrologers – myself included emphasise the role of free will. The idea is that while the celestial bodies may incline, they do not compel. Each individual’s choices, actions, and responses play a significant role in shaping your life. The birth chart is therefore, seen as a tool for self-awareness and guidance, helping individuals understand their innate qualities and tendencies, but it does not dictate their fate.

So, I feel that Astrology can be used as both a powerful and insightful tool for understanding ourselves, others, and the world around us. We use many different tools, or languages, to define and understand our world. We also use many different human behavioural profile testing tools; Myers Briggs, DISQ, Human Design and others that categories individuals into groups. Psychological tools and terminology is also used to explore human behaviour. Similarly, yet uniquely, Astrology gives us rich tools for understanding individual human character, and also offers us a language for communicating our observations with others.

Just as a birth chart can be drawn for an individual, astrology can be used to select auspicious times for starting business or holding events, watching the stock market, buying/selling of property.

Astrology should never be used to pass judgment or to label people. Neither should it be used as an excuse for our behaviour! Responsible astrologers avoid making absolute claims or dire predictions. I and many others use Astrology to empower and provide perspective. Therefore, it’s a good idea to approach Astrology as an imperfect language.

Even if it were perfect, we are not, so our interpretations can never be considered anywhere close to perfect. It follows to be wary of anyone claiming to be an Astrologer who also alleges to “know all”, or makes dire predictions. This kind of practice is not only irresponsible and misleading; it can affect the lives of those who believe them in adverse ways.

Astrology is a valuable and enriching tool for personal insight, understanding and self-improvement, rather than a deterministic guide. It provides the opportunity for exploratory insights and ways to integrate the energies given at birth. The more we understand ourselves, the more we are able to recognise our patterns and potentials, and the offer of more choices we have in life.

The content provided throughout these fourteen weeks of “the Journey” membership is provided in different forms. Have completed the 14 day Orientation, you will have received two copies of your personal birth chart. We’ll learn more about how the one of the source birth chart information will be used in this first module and all subsequent modules, plus how we’ll use the second source of birth chart in module two.

In this first module – Connection, I have provided three links, to pdf documents that have been designed to be printed as A5 double sided booklets. These three links including the ‘zodiacal expressions’, ‘Deciphering the Houses of Life’, and the first of the Planetary actors – the Ascendant (Asc).

In each subsequent module through to and including module 14, you’ll have access to the Planetary actor link for that week.

The Ascendant (Asc.) can be download here.

Note: please select the … (three dot image) on the top right hand corner of this page to down load the file to then be printed as a double sided A5 booklet.
