The horoscope comes from the two Greek words "hora" (time) and "scopos" (purpose). The birth time for everyone marks the purpose of their lives. We all know how time is important in everything we do. Your horoscope through the natal chart, which is your cosmic I.D., marks all the information about you, your abilities and disabilities you have as a human.
Let's say life here on planet earth is a school and not everyone is in the same class. It's up to you how far you progress. There are a lot of options. Your I.D. marks what grade you're in (fact), what books you are going to go through (destiny), and how you use and apply what you already know (past) with your actions and reactions (free choice) to promote your soul, the real you, to the next level.
Not all experiences derive from the brain. The brain functions on a physical realm, existing on planet earth and collecting data. Biological facts and society's false alarms can create health issues to some and psychological problems to others. Science, which is part of our physical world, performs the necessary duties that are required and we as a society ethically respond.
But the connection between the psychological and the spiritual realm cannot be answered by science, which operates in the physical world. Spirituality has its roots in the soul. The soul operates not from the brain but from a different dimension, whose existence and manifestation belong far away from planet earth.
To live using our body (material) so the soul (spirit), the real you, gets the proper knowledge - this will be one of the lessons for humanity, and the era of the new age that we are all in.
See, the global knowledge of humanity in order to accept things takes between 1000-2000 years.
I was born and raised in Greece. I was in my late teens when U.S.A. reached the moon. It was one of my happiest moments that gave me chills. This is a step forward, I thought to myself, just as I had predicted when I was 12 years old. But I couldn't convince my grandmother that the Americans had landed on the moon. She would say, "The Americans made a good film to make others believe that it really happened" - that was her answer. Many others had doubts too. But today all of humanity knows that we traveled to the moon and are working our way to Mars and further planets to come. Seeing is believing for some. There are so many subjects that humanity still doesn't understand. That will come to pass in time. Time is important, remember? But if you want to challenge yourself, here is the main question: Have you ever asked yourself why you exist?
ARIES (March 21-April 20): By the 17th, Mercury trines Saturn for calm and focus. Speak your mind. Share ideas. Animal lovers may welcome home a new pet. Guard against quick decisions and actions. The new moon on the 24th provides energy for more practical and financial matters.
TAURUS (April 21-May 21): Indulge your senses. Make a wish list. From the 21st to 24th, you will be more flirtatious. The new moon empowered by Pluto helps you accomplish something worthwhile. Put aside personal distractions. You need to focus on one important thing to hold your ground and keep what you have.
GEMINI (May 22-June 21): Avoid being temperamental and unpredictable. The new moon calls your attention to private matters and spiritual awareness. Don't let materialism and blind ambition steer the ship. Sensual urges are strong. Try out a new idea. Your mental faculties are active. Use them.
CANCER (June 22-July 22): An idea excites you. Mercury-Saturn makes it easier to stay in control. Career possibilities in your agenda. Get out and enjoy sports. Feeling moody makes agreements hard to reach. Contact friends and be direct in communications.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If a flash of intuition reveals itself, follow it quickly. Conjunctions in your house of intimacy, power and shared finances. Unresolved emotions may explode. Your professional plans turn better after the 22nd and the new moon helps you stick with them. Watch your spending even when it makes you happy to be generous.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 23): Expect wild behavior from a partner or someone close. By the 18th you know who's giving, who's getting and who's happy. You want to experience something new personally, professionally or sexually. Don't be critical, turn to your own "to do" list and get busy. Don't let selfishness take hold. If you feel lazy, put in an entertainment plan.
LIBRA (Sept. 24-Oct. 23): Be careful with machinery and tools. A relationship evaluation makes you know what you want, what you are willing to give and what you expect in return. Venus-Mars conjunction will fire up smoking passions. Think of a recent soulful connection. Cope with stress. Indulge in creative pastimes.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22): You'll need freedom of expression. Venus in Pisces as the sun enters your relationship sector stop looking back at an old romance to see what's possible in the present. Nail down an agreement, dealings will be slow and limited, with delays. Take time to enjoy.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21): Your actions have long-term effects. Watch home appliances and electronics for blow-up potential. A new idea could become profitable. You will be in a life-loving mood but don't commit to anything yet. You can lay a solid foundation for the future.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 20): Home life is boosting. You'll work hard from home to get things done, but a family construction project may be what turns chaos into constructive cooperation. Plant the seeds for future goals but don't neglect your own needs. Put behind a matter that has been a cause for concern.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 19): You might rediscover your creative side of long buried resources. Help others. Don't act too independently. Take a positive attitude, make improvements at home. Treat yourself to something nice. Don't ignore good business opportunities.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20): Sun-Pluto empowers you to act and have what you want. Don't get involved in spurious information, gossip. You have a clear vision of where you're going. You could be a recipient of a gift. Avoid asking for anyone's opinion. Spending is iffy. Safeguard important papers.
