As Above, So Below… The Science of the Stars
Astrology is one of the great adventures of human civilization and has contributed greatly to people’s lives and to our culture over time. Astrology’s purpose is to use the positions of the planets and stars in the sky to gather information on the individual and on humanity. Astrology is a system that enables us to understand the past, present and the future within a universe full of meaning.
Astrology literally means “the Science of the Stars”, from the Greek astrologia: astron (constellation; star) and logia (study of; ordering principle; utterance). It contains both the idea of an organised body of knowledge of the cosmos, along with the way the stars “speak” to us, or give meaning to our lives. A person who practices astrology is called an astrologer. A very ancient, but still vital discipline, astrology seeks the meaning and application of the influences of the planets, stars and other celestial phenomena in our lives. Astrology and astronomy have in modern times become separate studies, though for most of human history they were two sides of the same coin.
Exploring ourselves, our relationships and our place within the world, astrology has found that the symbolic relationships between the heavenly bodies are significant, and can be seen as a map to human destiny.
Astrology can give us insight into all manner of situations, from the personal to the political and from the most intimate to the most mundane. As an astrologer and a crystal healer I take a holistic view of the world, and believe there is a spiritual connection between all things, our Earth, animals, the elements, crystals, the planets, stars and us.
