Astrology Can Support You to Live with Deeper Purpose and Wisdom
Much of life can be reduced to common sense. Ironically, this very fact conceals a major issue, one that is the source of more problems than is commonly realized. Reducing life to simplistic solutions implies that it is more of a series of problems to solve than a journey with meaning and purpose to experience, learn and evolve.
The term ‘evolve’ here is what people often mean when they say ‘grow’, as in to grow from our experiences. While the term ‘mature’ can also be used, it too falls short of a deeper meaning. On its own, the notion of maturing as opposed to evolving also contains within it a limited perspective on life, it silently suggests adapting to and living up to the responsibilities of life, yet within the context of society alone and thus dismisses the notion of an ‘inner allegiance’ to one’s own conscience, the proverbial inner voice. Like the notion of common sense alone as a philosophy of life is limited.
Living life by common sense can be just that, common. It can, therefore, lack any sense of depth, or contain any degree of vision or inspire a deeper sense of purpose. Purely common sense thinking can lead to matter-of-fact thinking which actually reveals a lack of appreciation of or empathy and respect for others, not to mention for one’s very own life. Astrology certainly can help us to navigate challenging practical waters and currents of life which can be listed under the heading of ’problems’. However, its deeper and higher contributions are to awaken and inspire us to live with greater awareness and vision. Specifically, this notion of vision contains within it a spiritual purpose. The term ‘spiritual’, here, does not simply equate with religious. It more specifically refers self-actualization which, when recognized in its deeper sense implies some measure of a meaningful contribution that reflects expressions unique to our core nature and destiny.
What few people seem to recognize or understand is that Astrology has the power to reveal to us what exactly is our evolutionary need, otherwise known as our destiny. The common perception of Astrology is a limited and shallow recognition of the 12 Signs and to horoscopes. As valid as are horoscopes on their own ground and as remarkable as it is that they can work at all, a fact that hints at the holistic nature of existence, they fall short of the deeper beauty and wisdom that is to be found in a full embrace of how and why Astrology works. Yet, beyond such a lofty appreciation, once can gain the benefits simply by having a deep Reading, one that aims to reveal who you are and what constitutes the features of your destiny, versus idly hoping and playing with the idea that the future can be predicted.
Inherent in Astrology is a philosophy of life, based on the evolution of the soul. Until we recognize that, the creative, purposeful and meaningful aspects of life are not activated. If this is the case we may wonder why some people are more creative, happier, more purposeful and passionate about whom they are, what they are doing and what life is all about.
Some people have this knowing naturally. This may be because they are more intuitive or were born with more awareness and so on. However, not everyone has such a clear sense of why they are here or what might constitute meaningful and purposeful action. The focus becomes externalized. Life suddenly becomes large and we become small. From here comparisons arise along with a whole host of other related personality complexes. Some people are destined to do big and great things. That is their privilege, but it is also their responsibility and challenge. At the most basic level, we all have a responsibility and challenge is to live our own life in a meaningful life.
So, the next question is: how do we define meaningful? The answer is invariably a personal one. We may well share the same values and goals as others but few, if any, will share identical values and goals. In the practical scheme of life, we must manage our time and energy and money wisely. Implied in this is making wise choices. Regarding our money, this implies expenditures and investments. Fortunately, there is a lot to choose from in this day and age. One might even say too much. How many things do you suppose you have that you have purchased that you do not, have not and will not ever use or benefit from? Often, the answer is many things.
The point is that life can quickly become reduced to common sense action that is all about solving problems, paying bills and fulfilling roles. Rising above this state is what is meant by living with greater awareness and vision. A deep Astrology Reading can support you to awaken and inspire you to live with this greater sense of awareness and vision, which may also be defined as true wisdom.
