There is no better tool to examine consciousness then Astrology.
Against the backdrop of the heavens we can catalogue human experiences and look for relationships between events in our life and the positioning of the heavens.
Unlike meditation where all discovery is internal, the horoscope gives us the template of human energy design. It maps out potential from the day we are born and comments on the potential experiences before us.
Prediction is a poor word to describe Astrology, as it guarantees us nothing. Its gift is in giving the mind and ego a support and understanding as our beliefs fail to align us with our reality within.
