I enjoy reading topics about astrology. If you ask my friends they will tell you how much I seem to believe and know about it. To know specifically where the starts were aligned when you were born I think is a great deal of fun. If you have some free time and want to be surprised on how much your birth chart can say about you, then give it a try.
Truth is, I have to disappoint my friends publicly saying that I know nothing about astrology. My interest on it has grown tremendously in the last years, and even though I spend time reading about the starts and their alignments, I just know that it would likely take me a lifetime to gather meaningful knowledge about astrology. Don’t get me wrong, I love it and I wish to be fluent with it (since it is almost like a language). However I have so much interest in so many things that I don’t see myself being proficient in astrology- just yet. (This is part of having my Venus and Mars in Gemini, If you know what I mean).
I have come to try to understand it at a more personal level, to understand me, and my feelings is the only things that could possibly direct me to a better me, to a better future. I think that to understand me is to be able to understand the world around me (I am sure someone else said this quote, I don’t remember the author but it has stayed with me).
However, there is another “fortune teller trick” I have found more easy than trying to understand the universe. Opening a book at a random book page and trusting that you’ll be about to read a message that will be meaningful to you and for you.
The message does not have to tell your fortune, or solve your problems. But I promise, from daily personal experience, that it will leave you thinking and hopefully bringing something new to your awareness.
Maybe next time you are at a library, a friends house, or simply one of your own old books. Open a book on a random page and immerse yourself in it.
“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” – Roald Dahl
