Astrology is the study of how stars and planets influence your personality, behavior, and motivations. It helps explain who you are and why you're you. Astrology is a tool that you can use to decode your life. It may actually know more about you than you do. Mic drop!

The main building blocks of astrology are twelve zodiac signs. A zodiac sign is a
personality type. It’s a style, attitude, temperament, and way of being that influences how you express yourself. Astrologers, the people who practice astrology professionally, believe that your zodiac sign can describe about 40 percent of who you are. Signs correspond to the day and month you were born.

But you’re molded by other astrological factors too. You have a rising sign that
impacts how people view you. Your Moon sign is about your emotions. These two make up another 30 percent of you. Rising and Moon signs are calculated by using your birth time, day, month, and year. Another 20 percent comes from how eight planets affect you: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. Far from being just pieces of orbiting gravel, each planet reveals another layer of you, from how you think, to what you need in love and more. Planets are connected to your birth time, day, month, and year.

Astrology also tells you where things will be happening in your life. It uses the
concept of twelve houses to indicate the areas in your life that are affected. For
example, if you want to know what’s happening in your career or your romantic life, the tenth and fifth houses, respectively, can give you that insight. Houses cover about 5 percent of who you are. They’re calculated using your birth time, day, month, and year.

The final 5 percent of you is related to aspects. These are connections that planets make to each other. Aspects are the distance, in degrees, between planets in the sky. They explain how the different parts of your personality work together, like your head and your heart or your ego and your drive. Aspects correspond to your birth time, day, month, and year. This blend of signs, planets, houses, and aspects is your unique heavenly imprint.
It’s your cosmic DNA.

Astrology is a valuable tool to have in your life. It can unlock your potential and help you become more of who you are. It’s a guide to making better choices and
decisions that reflect your true personality and nature.

Astrology can help you navigate your life more strategically. It’s a road map to
uncover your path in life. Although it can’t tell you exactly what will happen to you, it shows you how your personality can deal with any issues or challenges. Astrology can give you insights, guidance and assurance.

Astrology also allows you to see things objectively. It gives you discernment. You
may end up realizing that every situation and experience—good or challenging—is an important life lesson that helps form your character and makes you who you are. So rather than feeling helpless or personally victimized, you can be empowered.

Personally, I believe astrology is an ace up your sleeve. Once you start using it, it
may be hard to go back. Your life will be changed for the better. Sure, it may not be considered a science, and yes, many people question whether it works or
even exists. But that doesn’t mean it can’t help. Without astrology, you may never know everything about yourself.
