General Astrology

When any planet in our horoscope crosses from Pisces over the threshold of 0° Aries, it starts a completely new segment on its eternal journey around Creation's Spiral. We all do. Each trip through the Zodiac is a complete segment of learning, kind of like "graduating" from second grade to third grade where the personal planets are concerned -- the Sun, the Moon, Mercury & Venus.

These trips for all those personal planets -- the ones between Earth & the Sun, happen every year, sometimes more than once. The Moon makes the trip every month, for example. As we move farther and farther from the Sun, past the Earth, these contacts with 0° Aries become more & more uncommon, & the lessons with the planets involved become more protracted & complex.

Mars, for instance, takes two years to make the circle. Jupiter takes twelve. Saturn takes between 28 and 30 years. Uranus takes 84. That's the last complete circle we might expect in the course of a normal human lifetime. Neptune takes 168 years from point to point. Pluto takes over 240 & has a very irregular orbit. He stays in Scorpio only 12 years, but in Taurus, more than 36.

So, when one of these more distant planets makes it back to the cusp of Aries, it's a pretty big deal. But there's also a special energy whenever a planet travels through the sign it rules. (Mercury & Venus get two bites of this apple. Both rule two signs. Mercury rules Gemini & Virgo. Venus rules Taurus & Libra.) A planet in the sign it rules doubles the energy it represents in the lessons it teaches.

There is a purity to its unimpeded expression that isn't nearly so powerful (or undiluted) in any other sign. Just something to note.

We think of the Zodiac in association with Astrology -- the twelve signs that divide the circle of the sky into the wedges of a horoscope. Many people treat the descriptions of the people born during these various wedges as "interesting" -- but more like a parlor game, really. They miss the incredible wisdom Astrology has to offer. But that's ok. They get to do that.

Others are more intrigued -- and ok, a little more reverent they see the amazing accuracy Astrology offers in describing their characters ... and helping them understand themselves better. That's one of the truly impressive gifts of Astrology. But, as I said, it's a choice.

The personalities described by the Zodiac signs aren't just a random collection of adjectives. Each sign describes a cohesive unit of complex energy. Yes, it has traits and characteristics. Yes, it has remarkable application to the people born under one Sun Sign or another. And, yes, each energy cluster has a purpose. It's designed to do something. Each plays a role in the process of creation.

Each occupies its assigned place for a reason. Each sign's energy changes, grows, shape-shifts & fades into the next in accordance with predictable, well-defined metaphysical laws. It's starts with the energy of new beginning & initiation -- in Aries. It goes through all the stages of growth and maturity -- as in Life. It ends with the healing, peace & transcendence of Pisces. In the Zodiac's circle ... it's all there.

Every horoscope contains the energy of every Zodiac sign -- operating somewhere. Likewise, each person -- each personality -- contains all the energy clusters ... also operating somewhere. Knowing your Sun Sign -- or more -- is a good beginning. But to know Astrology, you need to know the whole Zodiac. Ready?

Every topic of organized knowledge has its "basic information" level ... the stuff simple enough to seep into the mainstream culture where most educated people become aware of at least those fundamentals that introduce, if not define, it.

So it is with Astrology, whose "basic stuff" includes Sun Sign information, the concept of a Zodiac & a horoscope, & the idea that the positions of certain celestial bodies at the time of birth can reveal information about that person's character, proposed life experiences, purpose in life & ongoing spiritual destiny.

Most people stop with the Sun Sign stuff about themselves & maybe a few other close people in their lives. Some follow the silliness of daily, weekly or monthly "horoscopes" published in newspapers, magazines or on the internet. The vapidness of most rightly discourages their devotees from investing the whole topic much further. A few go on to learn about something called a Moon Sign.

That suggests the whole set of citizens in the Solar System might figure into this topic. Those who figure that out -- & dig a little deeper, discover they're right. There's a wealth of goodness & knowledge wrapped in the stardust of faraway worlds cataloged and waiting for someone to tap its wisdom & put it to use in their lives -- which will alter the course of that life immensely.

Those who stick with it will also learn about themselves, their characters, their place in the greater spiritual reality & the predictable patterns of their lives to such a degree, it will alter their perspective on what Life is all about & what reality itself could mean. When that happens, there's no going back. For better or worse your course is set on the mystical path -- where wonders you can't even imagine await.
