Who hasn't read a daily horoscope?

We even expect enlightenment in our fortune cookies. Culturally, these are not seen as anything of substance and are regarded as entertainment, not enlightenment.

If we are already open to alternative and traditional practices, we may have overlooked astrology simply because it's become so mainstream. It's listed in newspapers, apps, and we even choose jewelry depending on our birthstones. Perhaps in our quests for enlightenment, we've overlooked what was right in front of us.

If we’re open to traveling an alternative spiritual path, here are a few reasons why the stars may have the answers we’ve been seeking all along.

Rethinking Our Sign

Each sign has significance, characteristics and a certain reputation. But aren't we all more than one personality trait? 

Virgo is an excellent example of an astrological sign that is much more than it's purity symbol. With a symbol of a virgin, it would seem that Virgo characteristics would include cleanliness, unsociable behavior, or maybe inflexibility. However, in Virgo and the Constant Pursuit for Perfection and Acceptance, the author explains how the Virgo brain works:

“There is so much information and thoughts running through their heads, that the only way they will not be completely scatterbrained and all over the place (like Gemini) is through logically processing each and every thought that pops into their mind.”

The connection between purity and logical thought processing is not easy to connect. Instead, we have to dig a little deeper to find true meaning. Don’t just look at the symbol or one characteristic, but how these could be applied in our daily life. Since we are all on a journey of self-discovery, we may find answers that help us to see how the stars have been influencing our personality since the day we were born.

Uncovering Our True Nature

As we each walk our own path of spiritual and alternative practices, most have heard about Ayurveda, an ancient Indian system of medicine. Ayurveda practitioners believe that we are all born with a certain constitution. In Ayurveda: What's your Dosha?, Deborah Caruana shares the three different doshas: Vata (Air + Ether), Pitta (Fire + Water) and Kapha (Earth + Water). For example, knowing we have a Pitta dosha helps us choose the foods and practices that promote balance within that dosha.

With so many amazing practices available to us, why would anyone think only one traditional contains wisdom about our true natures? Many of us have incorporated tarot, spirit and animal guides, angels and other influences into our spiritual practices.

It’s not crazy to believe answers about our true natures can be found in astrology as well.

Listening To the Universe

How many of us haven't identified with our astrological symbol on first thought?

Whether Virgo the Virgin, Cancer the Crab, or Libra the Scales, we may struggle to connect with our astrological sign simply because it's extremely conceptual and may not seem to fit our personalities at first.

Yet, under the surface of symbolism may lay new answers that help us understand ourselves in new and interesting ways. What if we took a deeper look into our signs and went beyond our daily horoscopes. We all have our own experiences to live and answers are there if we are open to listening to them.

Perhaps our travels into understanding our astrological natures will help us connect the dots. For example, Virgos are Earth signs and this may answer why we're drawn to grounding crystals and practices. Or our astrological sign will point us in a new direction to discover practices we never knew existed. 

Coincidence or the Universe helping us walk our path?

Thanks. I didn't write it as a time-sensitive thing with any astrological event in mind. And I'll add the link to my book. Thanks for asking!

 Thank you, This article will be published in July B edition. If you have any time-sensitive material, please post on the Sensitive material group.

I say this because Astrology is almost always time-sensitive.  Do you want to add a social media link? if not you can add the Amazon link for your book. Let me know and I will add to the publishing details.
