I am not a believer in astrology. I barely knew my sign until a recent interview I did with a very well-known astrologer, numerologist and lexigramist. It was not a contentious conversation, she is a delightful person. The intent was to help people unfamiliar with astrology understand it. Much like religion, astrology is iconic. Millions of people believe in it and use it to help navigate their lives. At the very least, we should all understand the appeal.
I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this astrologer promotes hard work. She explained that her readings offer insight, not predetermination. Her goal is to help her clients align their lives with their interests and abilities. Once she does this, she helps them achieve their newly discovered goals and visions. I do not think our lives are determined by the stars or planets. Our path in life does not come from celestial synchronicities the moment we are born. I do, however, think that life has a rhythm dictated by the universe we live in. Much like a sextant used the stars to navigate ancient ships the law of rhythm will help you navigate your life.
