The better part of wisdom is accepting things that are out of our control. Think of a sailor on the open sea—they can’t control the wind but they can always adjust their sails. Navigating the world becomes far easier with the insights of astrology. It can influence our decisions on a deeper level than a weather report or daily news update.
Astrology has been practiced in human civilizations since before the beginning of recorded history. Don’t expect to master the science in one sitting. These articles will give you a clear “big-picture” view so that you can begin to understand your birth sign and what it reveals about your personality in this lifetime.
The Zodiac, consisting of twelve distinct signs, is the foundation of the science of astrology. The planets’ movement through these signs creates a “map” of the many different events taking place on earth.
The nakshatras are small constellations of stars that the moon travels through as it orbits Earth. In English, nakshatras are known as “lunar mansions.” These nakshatras are used along with zodiac signs to determine additional details about a person’s inborn traits. In addition, in electional astrology, also known as muhurtha, nakshatras are essential for determining suitable times for major life events.
