Understanding Astrology



To begin to understand Astrology
In order to begin to understand Astrology it is necessary to leave the rational part that our conscience is used to and to try to enter the topic free from prejudices in the world of mythical conscience

The meaning of the Natal chart
What is a natal chart? I will begin by telling a story: the Platonic myth of Er that is in the last book of the Republic

The four Elements of the Zodiac
The four elements of the zodiac: the air element, the fire element, the earth element and the water element each represent a fundamental type of energy that acts in each one of us

The Moon
But what is at the end this moon which also in astrology keeps the same charm and mystery that it has up there in the sky?

The Sun
The Sun represents our need for self-expression, it is the symbol of the identity and its characteristics show us the path that we must go down to become what intimately we feel we must be

Mercury: communication
Mercury is the maker of the pleasure that we experience whenever it happens to understand someone straight away, when a word is enough and we already know that his thought

Venus and affectivity
The Venus function expressly regards the construction of affective factors, the most important part for the Ego, a fundamental stage for children for the structuring of a sense of self-esteem at healthy relationship with themselves and with others

Mars: the God of the war
Mars is the planet that faces and conquers the world, which leads the Ego to the outside. It becomes a conscious action, pure aggressiveness or anger and powerless passivity depends on whether we will manage to become conscious masters of our strength

The planet that presses us to raise ourselves above the trifles of daily life and to ignore details devoid of meaning, which instead it urges us on to gain a wider perspective and, above, spiritually or morally significant

Chronus Saturn
The Saturn time is the time of the world governed by the principle of reality, it is the time of delay and frustration, of waiting, and it toils to attain its goals, the acceptance of our own limits and of those that regard environment

Uranus
Uranus is in the middle, between Saturn, the guardian of the threshold, on the one hand and Neptune and Pluto on the other hand; it is the link between the world of conscience contained in Saturnís boundaries walls and the world of the unconscious

Neptune
Ö And to shipwreck is sweet for me in this sea. .... is how Leopardi lost himself in the Infinite. I have not found more beautiful and adequate words than these to describe the dimensions of experience represented by Neptune

Pluto
Pluto, a name of black velvet, is for me the evocative power of the word Pluto: there is the impenetrable and mysterious black of the darkest night and the changing and sensual caress of the velvet, able nevertheless to give me the shivers
