Way back in the mists of time, before we became ‘enlightened’, those who practiced medicine were expected to have a good understanding of practical astrology. In fact, during the Renaissance, universities would not allow doctors to practice unless they had studied it beforehand.
Science included the spiritual, and the two were seen to be inseparable. In those times they understood the importance of viewing the body, mind, and spirit as one.
This opinion is often frowned upon and ridiculed these days, but to those who know and understand the truth, astrology can be used to bring healing.
Anyone who consults the stars usually does so for one reason; to gain knowledge and understanding. It may be purely out of curiosity, it may be to help them make a difficult decision. It could be simply because they fear the future.
In the end, you learn about yourself, and this is where astrology can begin to help to heal you. Nobody knows how you are feeling better than you do. Nobody experiences things the same – you are unique.
Each natal chart is individual, personal, an image of the heavens at the very moment you entered the physical realm, and it projects how the heavenly bodies may affect and influence your life, your talents, your personality and so on.
When you consult your chart it helps to map your soul’s evolution through the different stages of life, and this is an excellent way to know and understand yourself better. And when you know yourself, body, mind and spirit, you are better placed to heal yourself.
Practical astrology and healing – how does it work?
Practical astrology teaches us that each different part of our bodies is ruled by one of the twelve signs. As with your birth chart, which contains elements of every sign, our bodies also display aspects of the twelve; we are effectively living representations of the zodiac.
When there is an imbalance in one region it causes problems, and we display symptoms. This is when we generally head to the doctors or hit the medicine cabinet – and nobody is suggesting that this is wrong.
However, by focusing on aspects and strengths connected to the appropriate sign, it is possible to treat the cause, rather than alleviate the symptoms, which is often the way modern medicine works.
Through a holistic approach, treating the mind and spirit as well as the physical body, practical astrology can heal the whole person.
As an example, should you suffer from migraines and headaches, or even hair loss, it may well be that there is an imbalance of Aries energy.
This sign rules the head and hair, with energies relating to self-confidence and anger. Through the simple act of slowing down and appreciating the world around you, or even through standing up for yourself and letting go of ego, you can re-balance that energy and release yourself from the illness.
Whatever illness you may suffer from, practical astrology offers a way to help you, naturally, in mind, body, and spirit. Speaking with an online astrologer can help enlighten you.
