The latest research in positive psychology is finally catching up with what astrology has known for thousands of years — the keys to living a happy and meaningful life. This is astrology beyond the 12 Sign variety you’re familiar with, the ancients found cosmic inspiration for life in the whole sky.
Here are five ways they used astrology to live life more fully, and how you can too.
Ancient wisdom teaches that the moment of your birth is imprinted with your soul’s code. It is a map of your character strengths and talents that you need to express to live a happy and fulfilled life. An astrology chart is the ancient’s version of positive psychology used to help you find and follow your own bliss.
Sometimes difficulty feels never ending. Astrology can validate your experience, as well as tell you when there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. The ancient Stoics used astrology as a Serenity prayer — to accept the things you can’t change, courage to change what you can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Astrology is a tool for narrating your own story. Archetypal characters and plots move through our lives at different times. Understanding this “language of the soul” can help you find the words to tell your own story in a profoundly meaningful way. This personal storytelling is a key factor in living a deeply fulfilling life.
Nature is made of cycles of growth and release. Astrology illuminates these cycles at all levels of your life. Working in harmony with these natural rhythms, you can choose the best times for action or inaction to achieve greater success in all your endeavors. Astrology helps you experience this cosmic Flow.
Built into astrology are ancient practices for turning even difficult times to your advantage. By harnessing the power of these time-tested rituals, as well as your active imagination, you too can make lemonade out of the lemons of life. Astrology inspires creative, out-of-this-world thinking.
