Astrology is often surrounded by a lot of controversy, as many people feel that it is mostly about superstitions and myths. The followers of this practice feel that it is very useful in a person’s life and that its predictions can be used to uncover many of the hidden mysteries that even science cannot resolve. Even though this is what many people do believe, many of the top astrologers will say that their practice cannot be used to create or come to any conclusions of an exact prediction. They insist that its most practical applications lie in its ability to revel those hidden tendencies that may be present in the future of a person seeking its insight.
Astrology, just like any other subject, is not without its misconceptions. The predictions that any practitioner brings up cannot be used to describe all of the events that may take place, so they can’t really tell you that you are destined to marry a certain individual on a particular date. They can however give you hints about your marriage or any other incidents that may take place. So what these practitioners offer is not an exact prediction but a statement based on varying astrological techniques. So it does not revolve around the exactness but rather the probability of things taking place.
This is an interesting subject that can be applied in various aspects of your life such as your marriage, career and professional goals, the relationships that you have with other people. It has been applied throughout history by different astrologers who have successfully predicted various events.
So in actuality, astrology can’t be used to predict the future but you can use it gain a deeper insight or understanding into the different patterns or directions that your life may take. Another misconception is that whatever your birth chart has in store, you have to accept, but astrologers believe that we have the abilities to change what is written for us. They are more like the goals or the destinations that we are most likely to achieve and these end goals gives us insight; there are many other variables that can be impacted by the decisions that you will make or plan on making.
In order to see how efficient astrology can be, you will have to approach a professional practitioner who can then plan out your birth chart. This chart can then be compared to the life experiences that you are having and then determine if there’s any truth in what is being foretold.
Astrologers agreed that the Earth has already seen the six ages of human existence from the Cavemen up to the present. Currently, we exist in transition between the Pisces and the Aquarius ages. The calculations, defining the end of one age and the beginning of another one, may differ. According to some the Piscean age ended long ago, while others claim that we still live in it.
In astrological mythology, Astrological age is a period of time of approximately 2160 years, comparable with the development of the inhabitants of the planet Earth, relative to their culture, civilization, and governments. Each age is associated with one of the twelve zodiac signs. Thus, each age will be repeated after the completion of the entire cycle, or in 25,920 years. The astrological age cycle proceeds in a retrograde direction. If forward movement is from Ares -> Taurus -> Gemini -> Cancer -> Leo, etc. then retrograde direction is inverted Leo -> Cancer ->Gemini-> Taurus -> Ares, etc.
