You did not get that email that someone had asked you if you had gotten, and during the same afternoon, there was a power outage at your office. The icing on the cake was when you had gotten to your car in the parking lot, it would not start. The first thing you yell out after the ignition failed to start was how much you have had it with Mercury being in retrograde. You did not say that you have had a horrible day. Mercury in retrograde was the first thing that came to your mind which was the cause for the missed email, power outage, and your car not starting.
The fact that you blamed the frustrations that happened during the day on Mercury being in retrograde shows how much you take astrology seriously – and that you simply flat out love it. Have you wondered why that is the case? Firstly, you are most definitely not alone as you probably know since so many other people are very much into astrology as well. Why do people love it so much? Let’s find out! However, before that is delved into, let’s talk a little first about what astrology really is!
What Is Astrology?
Astrology is the study of the position and the movement of the planets, celestial bodies, and the stars. For thousands of years, it has been believed that the position and movement of celestial bodies have had an impact on life. It has been believed as well that astrology has an impact on global and personal events.
In fact, for centuries, people have analyzed the planets and the zodiac signs and have made some interesting discoveries. With that being said, astrology has been something that has fascinated many people for a very long time, and it continues to do so. there will always be some people who will not accept astrology and will be closed-minded to it. But let’s not worry about any naysayers. Instead, it is time to go into the 5 individual reasons that people do love astrology.
1. Astrology Provides Insight Into Your Life, The Lives Of Others, And Events
The one thing that people want to know is why things happen. They want to know why good things happen, and why challenging things happen. Astrology provides the insight that people are looking for as to why things do happen in their lives whether they are positive or negative. It can also provide them the insight of what could be going on in someone else’s life who is part of their lives. Additionally, it can be used to provide insight into global events.
In other words, if someone who is into astrology has been inclined to move to another home, then he or she will look into the personal transits. When transiting Mars is approaching the 4th house and is making a sextile to the natal Uranus, that explains the urge to move.
Another example would be that if you had a loved one is all of a sudden showing signs of isolation and depression, the first thing you will want to do is be there for that person. You will want to be reassuring and make it known that he or she is not alone. Then you will peak at their chart and see that transiting Saturn is making transit through their 12th house which can most definitely cause those troublesome qualities. However, based on this discovery, you will find ways on how to specifically help someone who is going through this difficult transit.
Additionally, if you are wondering why financial institutions, in general, have been undergoing some major changes for several years – that is because Uranus has been in Taurus for a while. Astrology does provide plenty of insight and people are curious so it answers a lot of questions!
2. Astrology Helps People Learn About Themselves
One of the things that people want to learn about is themselves. They want to find out why they love certain things, why they have certain habits that they struggle with shaking, their behaviours, and why some things make them tick. Astrology can teach people so much about their personalities, and as a result, it can help them develop compassion towards themselves.
For instance, if a social butterfly who hates being alone questions why he or she has a hard time with not being around people, the natal chart will say it all. This individual has a stellium in the 7th house, the house of relationships which include the Sun and Mercury and trines the Libra Moon – that right there screams out this particular reason.
Therefore, this individual can gain a better understanding of him or herself based on this alone and will be on a path to developing self-compassion. Additionally, when people learn about themselves through astrology, it can help them with making decisions in the long run as well.
3. Astrology Gives People Hope
In addition to the fact that astrology provides insight into anything about yourself you want to know about, or others, and into events – it also gives people hope. People who are going through very difficult times utilize astrology by looking into how long challenging transits and placements will last. They know that the challenges will not last forever and easier transits and placements will help bring them relief in addition to positive things as well.
With that being said, because people who believe in astrology know that tough times do not last forever, astrology helps them find ways to manage the difficult periods.
4. Astrology Prepares People For Challenging Times Ahead
The saying ignorance is bliss is not always an accurate saying. Sure, there are some things you may not want to know about your future or else if you did, you may not want to get out of bed again. However, when it comes to knowing about the strong possibility that the energies around you that you will face could be challenging – it gives you time to prepare. And that is exactly how astrology can help with that.
By utilizing astrology, you will know about the transits and placements ahead of time that you will be facing. As it was already mentioned, people who are going through hard times rely on astrology for hope as they will learn that easier transits and placements will happen. When it comes to challenging transits that are coming up, people will find ways on how to best cope with difficult planetary energies that can easily have an effect on their lives.
An example of that would be the Saturn return that people experience when they are 28 and 29 years of age, as well as 57, and 87 years of age. Saturn is the stern teacher and will provide opportunities for growth. Unfortunately, those opportunities can be difficult to handle. This is why there are resources out there that will help people manage the difficulties during their Saturn returns so they can prepare themselves for it and know what to expect.
5. Astrology Is A Excellent Self-Help Tool
There is a lot of information out there on how to improve yourself and to become a better person. The self-help information that you will see out there consists of books and websites that teach you how to meditate, expressing gratitude, and how to utilize the Law Of Attraction. However, even though those methods are helpful in order for self-improvement, astrology is another excellent self-help tool.
For instance, everyone has challenging aspects in their charts, however, nothing is ever written in stone that those challenging aspects will plague people forever. They can learn tools on how to work with them and how to rise past them, and improve themselves as a result.
6. Astrology Cannot Be Dismissed
Scientists have made attempts to dismiss astrology for many years but they have never been able to do so. The reason that there are many skeptics around when it comes to astrology is that many of them are not aware that someone’s personal horoscope goes beyond the sun sign alone. They don’t realize that the sun sign is just one fraction of the personal horoscope. Astrology always finds its way to work its way through.
7. Astrology Is Enjoyable
Astrology is fun and that is why people do like to read about their horoscopes. People enjoy learning about their natal charts and love to understand the natal charts of others. On a lighter note, many people find horoscopes that they read in newspapers entertaining even if they take them with a grain of salt. Heck, people will even read horoscopes for their pets for fun and get a good laugh out of it.
Now you see why people believe in astrology. It provides so many opportunities for learning, self-growth, and it is highly fascinating.
