Near 750 BC, Babylonian astronomers/astrologers divided the sky into 18 zodiac signs, created the horoscope circle diagram we use today and developed a system for accurately predicting future planetary movements. They later refined the zodiac down to 12 signs or constellations, around 600BC which was furthered by ancient Greeks Pythagoras and Plato.
“As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul” -Hermes Trismegistus
As above, so below, means that each planet’s individual transit impacts our everyday circumstance. From hospitals to police stations, a full moon is an indicator of increased accidents and sudden psychotic episodes. The ancients tell us this is because gravitation pull changes direction temporarily and changes the way our body fluids (water) move, changing the way we think. The word lunatic stems from the Latin word luna, meaning moon. The theory behind the moon impacting the human body, made up of about 65% water, is well established even considered mainstream. Lunar activity impacts our oceans creating predictable tides, this same activity impacts our water-based human bodies. The correlation is easy to see.
Ancient Greek philosophers used the same moon cycles that are recognized today by farmers and mainstream society as an indicator of energy. The slower moving planets have that same energy and can carry a considerable more powerful “punch”. For better or for worse, planetary movements attract a relatively predictable impact on activities in the houses they transit.
Meet our Astrologer - Stephanie
Her philosophy in utilizing Traditional Astrology is knowing what is “before you” so we can help direct your energies towards the opportunities that are on offer that life brings our way. When the timing is favorable, take big chances and put yourself out for the world to reward. Pull back with caution during times that are unfavorable and reflect your heart’s desire.
This philosophy allows us to mitigate potential stormy skies by taking precautions and playing it safe when skies look dark. Trouble shooting unfavorable transits that can limits suffering or stress; it allows the native to focus attention on more favorable outcomes by avoiding targeted activities. Troubled waters will come, but there is comfort in knowing the timings and the length of the transit.
My consultations are flexible and you may choose from a combination of three topics. In addition, if you are familiar with astrology and prefer certain house methods, let me know in the appointment notes for accommodation.
I have spent 30 years dabbling in the different house systems and they all work to one degree or another. Starting in the early 1970s with Placidus, moving into Equal House in the 1990’s and the last 5 years utilizing the Whole Sign House System, I find Whole Sign more accurate at prediction for transits, utilizing the Traditional Astrology concepts rather than Modern. Modern Astrology focuses on your natal astrology and the modern explanation; Traditional Astrology has a fate circumstance focus, while Modern Astrology a psychological focus.
My consultations last 60 minutes and are tailored to what you are seeking more clarity on in your own special circumstance. Written reports require 48 hours and are not generated by a computer, but written personally for you.
