You know you’re supposed to do something important with your life. At least, that’s what all of the self-help books and magazines keep telling you. But even with this advice, it’s harder still to figure out what your ‘true’ purpose might be. While astrology isn’t going to give you the instructional manual for your life, you can begin to learn what your next steps might be in order to life a content and productive life.
The best place to begin when you’re starting to use astrology to guide you in your life is your zodiac sign. Find out what sign you are and start to see how you line up to the qualities you’re supposed to have. Once you start to get to know the qualities of your sign, you might begin to look at the qualities that don't match up to the person you are today. As you begin to see these discrepancies, think about what this says about you. Do you want these qualities? Do you think you need to cultivate these qualities? Why don’t you have these qualities in the first place?
Most people aren’t going to fit their zodiac sign completely, no matter when they were born. But their sign will tell them something about the type of person they are. You can also learn about what career paths might suit your sign’s energy. Try exploring some of these ideas and see if you find something you didn’t know about yourself before.
Once you have the sense of your sign and what it means in relation to you, then it may be a good idea to think about your birth chart. This will give you more information about who you are in relation to the alignment of the stars and planets when you were born. It can help to have a professional review this chart for you, or you can look for software that can interpret your chart, based on your birth date, birth location, and birth time.
With this chart, you can find out more about the larger themes that might be present in your life. You can also begin to learn more about what influences are present and how they might be challenging you or shaping you right now. In addition, you can also learn more about what path your life has already taken, and from there you can begin to see where your life might be likely to end up next.
You might also want to learn more about how the stars and planets are shifting in the sky each day. By relating these to your own sign, you can begin to see how the energy of the world may be pushing you on any given day. Of course, you might not choose to take action, or you might choose to do something with this information.
The purpose of your life may be impacted by what you learn about yourself, so why not learn as much as you can from the sky? After all, the sky has been watching over you since you were born.
