6 Common Myths About Astrology That People Think Are True


The practice of reading the stars to gain
insight into our lives has been around for thousands of years, and yet it’s still vastly
misunderstood. While reading editorialized horoscopes in
magazines is certainly fun, it doesn’t convey the full meaning of this powerful tool that
we can utilize to navigate our world. In reality, astrology empowers each and every
person to take control of their life in some small way, and ultimately, to fulfill their
own individual destiny. But in order to put this invaluable road map
to use, some misconceptions need to be cleared up. Here are the most common myths related to
astrology which people often believe, but are not true: Myth number 1: Astrology is considered nothing
else but a trend. A trend is a flash in the pan with a short
shelf-life that goes out of fashion as quickly as it comes into fashion. But astrology has existed as far back as 25,000
years ago. Astrology formed a large part of the existence
for Greeks, Egyptians, and Babylonians. Although it appeared in several forms throughout
different cultures, looking at the stars and searching for answers seemed to be a thing
which we did for a long time. Myth number 2: Astrology has something to
do with magic, the paranormal, or psychic activity. Those who don’t believe in astrology often
write it off as something mysterious, but the truth is, astrology is really just based
on how the universe looked on the day you were born. The main component used in astrology is a
birth chart, which is created with information about when and where you were born. The chart itself is an imprint of what the
planets, stars, and universe looked like at that precise moment. It makes sense, then, that astrology is also
called the “science of light.” What kind of light? The light of the planets, which reaches the
earth. This includes the obvious, sun and moon, but
also all the other planets. Though this science is probably not the exact
same type you learned in school, it does bear some similarities and it’s not mystical
in any way. It’s simply based on the objects we know
are in the universe, and there’s nothing too mysterious about that. Myth number 3: The existence of a new and
different, thirteenth Zodiac sign. You have probably seen this information floating
online for years. There really exists a constellation called
Ophiuchus, but this constellation is not a new one. The constellation exists between the signs
Sagittarius and Scorpio. However, it does not have importance in our
Zodiac. It has not been included for several reasons,
and although several astrologers include it, most are not going to incorporate it in things
because it is simply unnecessary. So, the way in which our sky is separated
right now is just as it has to be. Myth number 4: Astrology is the same as astronomy. There is a considerable difference between
astronomy and astrology, which means that they are not one and the same. Astronomy studies our Universe and the contents
which are outside of the atmosphere, while the astronomers are examining the motions,
positions and everything else of certain celestial objects. A lot of people confuse these two studies
and assume that they are identical. Saying this, the difference between them is
more than evident. Myth number 5: Astrology can predict or change
the future. This is, perhaps, the most dangerous assumption
people make about astrology. Contrary to popular belief, its purpose is
not to guess what will happen to you in the future. Instead, it’s meant to be a guiding tool
that empowers you to make conscious decisions and avoid the ditches in life. Astrology aims to help you stay aligned with
the oneness of the universe. When you’re not aligned and things keep
going wrong, it can help guide you to better decisions. Myth number 6: The Sun sign tells everything
about you. Your sun sign is only the conscious, above-the-surface,
basic ego part of you. But you are much more than that! For astrology to be personal and deep, an
astrologer should calculate your individual natal chart. Your natal chart shows your soul’s purpose
– who you are, why you chose to come to Earth at this particular time and place. Only together the combination of your sun,
rising and moon signs plus the positions and movements of planets can give the whole picture
of who you are.
