What is Astrology ?
First of all Astrology is NOT horoscope. Astrology is a very precise science and is completely linked and unique for each and every particular individual. If you would just study the Solar Sign or even the Ascendant of the person, it would not get you very far and you could get things very wrong. You have to study the Chart of one person in full details to get proper results. And then if the Astrologer is honest and well-trained the results can be amazing.
Regarding the Birth Chart, it will give you information about your personality, about how you see life, about what you expect from life and what are your main qualities and skills as well as your drawbacks. It is important to understand that there is no fatality in that: you can know yourself better through Astrology and therefore you might learn to make a better use of your qualities and learn how to work on your drawbacks. The more aware you are about them, the best chance you get to improve your life.
That is what Astrology is all about.
For that reason, I take a long time studying a particular Chart as everybody is different. I will work specifically on your Chart not using any pre-written stuff as you might find on the Internet as I don’t believe that it is proper Astrology. That is why I would prefer if you could take an appointment at least a week in advance so that I get plenty of time to get familiar with your own personal Chart. Please don’t forget to give me your date, time and place of birth when you take the appointment.
For a child, it is very interesting to make a Birth Chart as it can give you an idea of what his/her personality will be and it might get easier for the parents to direct him or her towards the right activities, then studies, etc. You can also get very important tools about how to deal with the education of a particular child as every child is so unique.
If you choose to ask for a child’s Chart, I will focus on personality, tastes, studies, professional orientation and education.
It is obviously an important part of Astrology as well.
To make it simple, every birthday you start a new cycle with what is called the Solar Return. We also use what we call transits and progressions to complete that.
So every year, from birthday to birthday, we can peek into what your next year will be like. Here again there is no fatality. It is more about advice and guidance. For example, if you are aware that one part of your life will be more difficult, you can take measures to make it easier and to focus on the good parts of your next year. It is important to do that not too early before your birthday as what happened in the previous year can give very important clues as to where you are heading the next year.
Note that the Solar Return can be made only after your Birth Chart has been done.
I also like, when people ask for it, to combine Astrology and Sophrology: Astrology can make you more aware of what problems you have to face and Sophrology can help you solve them or live them in a better or at least more conscious and relaxed way.
