21 Sep 11 Intriguing Benefits Of Studying Astrology
To understand what inspired me to create this content on the benefits of studying astrology, we’ll start with the basics.
I agree, astrology is not a religion. We are not sure if it’s a science either. Is it magic? Maybe. But here is what I can tell you. Just like Feng shui (for example) the foundation of astrology is the belief that things affect other things. So provided you do not go around blaming your problems on the stars, and as long as you always ensure you assume responsibility of your own actions, then hell, a little applicable wisdom and auspicious coincidence cannot hurt.
That said, this article on reasons and benefits of studying astrology would be incomplete without touching on why most skeptics will never have faith in the potential of astrology.
The main reason they cannot be convinced of this practice’s validity is simply that it cannot pass the “Scientific Method’s” standards.
If you do not have the time to go check out the linked article above, I’ll explain this method briefly.
The scientific method simply refers to the process for experimentation that’s used to analyze information, accept or reject a particular hypothesis or (if necessary) modify it, and eventually draw conclusions.
The most essential step in this process is that for any information to get validated as a science, one ought to be able to replicate the experiment until there aren’t any discrepancies between theory and observations.
With that short lesson in mind, it’s clear that astrology can’t pass these standards of scientific methods because there is still a lot we are yet to uncover regarding how several aspects of this ancient practice works. Add to that the fact there has been an extremely minimal amount of research and testing to validate whether this discipline is or isn’t a science.
According to skeptics, the small amount of testing that has already been done seems to indicate that Astrology doesn’t pass the rigor of the scientific method.
Having said that, we should remember that psychology did not start getting regarded as a science until the beginning of the 20th century. This implies that the “jury is still out” in regards to whether Astrology will ultimately get classified as a bona fide science.
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s look at the definition of Astrology (for the sake of those who’re new to this discipline) before jumping to the main section of the post and looking at the benefits of studying astrology.
What is astrology?
Astrology is simply a system of knowledge, which uses a person’s birth chart and the movement of the planets in the sky to:
- Describe their personality
- Predict the likely events that might happen in his or her life. An individual’s birth chart is like a treasure map that will indicate where opportunities and challenges will occur in a person’s unique life.
As you’ll learn if you check out the article linked above, a skilled astrologer will use art, interpretation, and science to provide all this information to clients.
Benefits of studying astrology
You will never know how it will feels until you try it
Yes, it’s true – you will only best learn from your own experiences. This implies that the only way to have the best understanding of astrology is to give it a try and apply it to your personal life. And trust me, you won’t be the first one.
There have been a lot of people who were skeptics and came into this arena with doubts, but after learning more about their zodiac signs and how they influenced their personality traits, they changed their perceptions. Their lives became more meaningful and things got interesting.
That said, that’s still their experience, and you will only believe if you give it a try and feel it take effect in your own life.
Astrology offers an expansive 4-Dimensional Perspective
Astrology is a vast discipline that will encompass all the different aspects of your life – and do it in great detail. It will help you see the world, those surrounding you, and even the rest of the world through a third eye, and if you’re keener, it’ll also help you get ‘inwards’ and spiritual.
It teaches you that there are 3 effects of everything in life (neutral, good, bad), and at the same time, the discipline introduces a 4th side – the side that states you can influence what happens in your life through your own Karma.
Astrology will also take the three dimensions of our world into account – these include the World, you, and your spirituality (your inner core/self), as well as a 4th dimension of the Unseen, a God, the Faith, the solutions, the remedies, and the superpower. All these dimensions put together will help you mitigate ill influences and troubles.
Astrology isn’t superstitions. It is Mathematics
I know I started this article by pointing out that astrology isn’t science and isn’t a religion either. But it’s also not a superstition. If anything, its mathematics.
Astrology is a time tested wisdom based on ancient scriptures, Vedas and Upanishads. It’s not baseless and it’s certainly not superstition. It’s a proven discipline and faith with a mathematical basis. Note that Horoscopes and Kundalis are created as per geometric patterns and numerological calculations, giving them a mathematical basis.
What’s more? Astrology is a topic that is instructed and taught in some of the most prestigious universities around the world. Its actual implementation will obviously be polished or perfected depending on the practitioner, but its fundamentals, like mathematics, have always remained the same.
The study can make you a better person
This wouldn’t be an article on the benefits of studying astrology without this point.
In fact, the thing I love most about astrology is that it shows me the mirror – as I am. Provided you’re a human being, you can rest assured you were born with multiple flaws and also have shortcomings. Note, however, at the end of the day, that’s okay since, after all, you’re HUMAN.
Anyway, if like me, you’re also interested in constantly improving and becoming the best version of yourself you can become, then that’s where astrology comes into play.
Astrology readings like Your Horoscope Analysis or Life Prediction Reading won’t hesitate to call a spade a spade, regardless of how hurtful the information might be. So, if you are a rude, selfish, or short-tempered individual, then a good astrological reading will easily tell you so – and tell it to your face.
That said, astrology isn’t just here to scold you and make fun of your shortcomings. Depending on the flows in question, your natal chart will also clearly instruct you on how to move forward and navigate situations in life so you can get rid of any negative characteristics you may have.
At the end of the day, by getting over your weaknesses, you become an evolved and better individual.
It can help you secure a happy relationship
Like all other holistic subjects that are concerned with the development of an individual’s spiritual, creative, artistic, physical, social, emotional, and intellectual potentials, astrology believes that as a human, you have a deep-rooted need to feel appreciated and connected. This is the importance of relationships and love in every person’s life.
With that in mind, studying astrology will tell you all about your love potential, the type of marriage or companionship you are destined to have, the type of partner you are most compatible with, and much more.
As you can already tell, knowing all these things will certainly allow you to make the most of any opportunities that come your way while at the same time getting rid of avoidable character traits. Better yet, this information will allow you to take appropriate measures that’ll allow you to lead a healthy and happy sex, married or love life.
I recently created an article titled “Romantic Compatibility.” Ensure you check out the guide as it will help you learn what signs you’re most compatible with, which will, in turn, allow you to choose the best person to share your life with.
Astrology can help you create or choose a good, happy, and balanced work-life
Since Astrology is such an honest and clear guide (if you make sure you pick an educated and experienced Astrologer), it boasts the ability to tell you what education and career path you ought to follow if you want to secure a contented and successful life.
The advice and insights from Astrology will also help you take full advantage of opportune times while at the same time ducking the disadvantageous circumstances and situations.
To top it off, if you’re frequently stuck in the worst of situations, then you can rest assured that Astrology’s solution-oriented approaches will train you on how to see rays of light at the end of the tunnel.
By using these practical remedies, you can also negate the ill influences of the nine planets so you can feel better.
Astrology is insightful and progressive. It will advise you to keep pace with the changing times!
Because Astrology takes into consideration two different major aspects – your birth potential (it will be revealed through your natal chart or during something like a life prediction reading) and the impact of transiting planets on your horoscope – it isn’t one-dimensional.
This further implies that it will not restrict you, but will instead deliver an inherent message that states that as times change, things will change; and the things that we may not have had since birth can get presented to us later on as we move ahead in life.
It can tell you all your real strengths
If you’re all caught up on the basics of astrology, then you know that your sign, horoscope, ruling planet, and birth chart will be so unique to you that they’ll be able to help you trace, reveal, and find your strengths.
And when I talk about your strengths in this section I am talking about all the fine, natural qualities you were born with, and all you have to do is bring them out, then hone and polish them so you can be equipped to handle anything that life throws at you.
With that in mind, Astrology doesn’t just tell you about your real strengths……
….It can reveal all your weaknesses as well
As I noted when I started listing these benefits of studying astrology, horoscope and astrology readings are equivalent to seeing yourself through a mirror. If they point out the special and focal attributes about your life, they’ll also do the same with your flaws and weaknesses.
Let’s take this up a notch with an interesting idea. If you’re a fan of astrology, then I’m confident you’ll be pleased to know that there is a special type of astrology reading known as the Janampatri Reading. I personally believe that this should be done for every single child because it maps out all their birth (natal) possibilities – including their weaknesses, strengths, personality, and more.
Astrology can be a lifesaver
How? You may ask. Because it keeps you posted on the future obstacles, hurdles, and glitches you might encounter. In other words, you will be forewarned, and whether you choose to be forearmed or not is completely up to you.
On a serious note, though. Astrology really can be a lifesaver, even though not literally (hopefully.) No one will ask you to put on armor and run into the battlefield, but you can simply follow the precautions, suggestions, and advice as suggested during a reading, and end up saving yourself from lots of pain (without doing much.)
Astrology is extremely fun
The last, but by no means least advantage in our article on the benefits of studying astrology is the simple fact it’s fun. Yes, it is, with a Capital and Bold F!
There is an extremely fun and cool side to this rather serious subject – if you’re willing to sufficiently explore it. The lucky charms, colorful cards, the little fortune-telling tricks, the sun signs, and more. You can literally associate your sun sign to almost every aspect of your life, and as you will also see, besides being simply insightful, they are also extremely fun and amusingly correct.
That’s not all, there are lots of party and games theme ideas you can plan just around the 12 signs of the zodiac.
