How to develop self-awareness
Astrology means something different to everyone, and true significance lies in what it symbolizes to each individual.
For some, astrology poses as a kind of blueprint of self-awareness and emotional balance and is a tool for self-empowerment, self-awareness, and empathy.
The basic premise of astrology is that the sun, moon, planets, and constellations have some type of effect on us as people as well as the world around us.
Using a predetermined set of rules about their positions and movements, we can, it’s said, attempt to understand our own personality and compulsions and (to an extent) predict the behavior of others.
Astrology has been around for thousands of years. Babylonian astrologers were considered scientists in their own time, credited with being the first to notice that the stars and planets moved in patterns.
Once they realized that these movements would have a tendency to connect with life events on earth they began documenting and naming them.
So many of us turn away from religion because we actually crave meaning, we just also happen to equally crave personalization, and it is that personalization that could explain why millennials are turning to astrology over something more structured and authoritarian, like religion.
This is not an abandonment of religion, but rather a spiritual shift. People, inherently, want to believe something, and are just feeling more comfortable expressing what somethings work for them specifically.
The most common way astrology is explained in psychological terms is The Barnum Effect, which is a tendency for an individual to believe vague or “barnum” statements when told it applies specifically to themselves or a group they belong to. (I’m such a Libra!)
So, sometimes a sort of magical thinking causes us to superimpose our life experiences and personality traits, twisting them into a shape that allows us to fit a square into a circle.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
