How to use Astrology as a tool that can help you find the true you?

Are you sure that you were born in the right world? Do you feel like a misfit sometimes? Do you feel old in your values and attitudes compared to your peers?

There is historical evidence that proves to us that Astrology is a science that has been in existence for a very long time. Nowadays people like to term Astrology as a form of pseudoscience, but it is not true. Minor crises in their life can have them flock to the most renowned astrologers, wanting to know the solution and end of their crisis. This just reflects the bigoted attitude we have harboured for these sciences we don't even know the root of but will continue to demean it. Many cultures around the world developed elaborate systems to ascertain the future of a child when he or she is born. Astrology is not always about the future. It is about the very present that has the power to determine the future. When the future is talked about, the present is not left in Astrology. Vedanga Jyotisa is the earliest known Hindu text that was written on Astrology around 1400 BCE till the final centuries of BCE.

When we talk about Astrology, we consider the Sun and the Moon as planets as well. There are twelve zodiac signs in total in the system that Astrology has provided to us.

The 12 Astrological signs

The twelve zodiac signs are Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces.  All these signs are ruled by an Element. There are four elements in consideration when we talk about these signs in Astrology. Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are known as the Fire signs. Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are known as the Earth signs. Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius are known as the Air signs. Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces are known as the Water signs. The Fire signs are very straightforward, hold no grudges for long, and are self-driven and ambitious. The Earth signs are reliable, hardworking and people who like to live in reality, 're very grounded. The Air Signs are excellent communicators, very adaptable, and love their freedom the most. Lastly, the Water signs are very sensitive, emotional, caring, and spiritually inclined.

Yearly horoscopes, Monthly horoscopes, and Weekly horoscopes are designed according to Astrology. Birth charts or Natal charts are formed with the help of Astrology. Have you heard of the Sun sign and the Moon sign? Sun sign is considered as the sign which showcases the identity of the individuals. The Moon sign gives an insight into people's subconscious, how they think, and feel.  There are also rising signs known as the Ascendant which helps to determine how an individual is likely to be perceived by others upon the first impression.

Just like each astrological sign is representative of quality, each planet in question represents an energetic part of our life.
