Astrology is an ancient system in which personal qualities and tendencies as well as events and activities are associated with patterns and cycles of the planets of our solar system. In modern astrology we use three parts of a horoscope to determine the factors in a personís life. First are the positions of eight planets of our solar system plus the Sun and the earthís Moon. They are in turn related to the constellations of our galaxy (called signs). The planets and signs are connected to areas of life experience (called houses). Through a reading of a horoscope we can perceive the tools, strengths, challenges and weaknesses to work with or work through.
Wholistic means integration. Wholistic Astrology is a way of interpreting a horoscope so that all aspects are considered. We can see tendencies in external areas such are career, finance and social needs. We can also explore internal drives involving emotional, psychological and spiritual elements of a personís life. We can see the programming influences of early childhood and discuss their significance in adulthood. By uniting the disparate aspects of our being in a positive way, Wholistic Astrology can be a powerful tool for growth and self-mastery.
