Astrology has been around for thousands of years, and it’s still growing in popularity today, with more and more people turning to it as an alternative to modern medicine. One reason astrology is so popular is that people believe it has real practical benefits, such as helping them make better decisions or understand their personality better.
Is studying your horoscope worth my time and energy?
So you want to know if there’s a reason for studying your horoscope? Is it worth the time and energy? What, after all, is going on here with this Astrology stuff!? I mean how complicated can something be when they’re talking about Stars?
Anybody who tries seriously learning these languages needs commitment (and some other things). Why bother anyways!? What do people get out of reading their natal charts or taking classes in college just so someone else can tell them what their life is supposed to look like? As if we don’t already have enough trouble figuring that out ourselves!
Check out these seven unique ways you can receive benefits from astrology that go beyond simple entertainment or prediction of your future!
1) Adopt The Quality of the Planet you are born under
Each planet gives unique qualities and energies. Knowing these qualities allows you to channel them in a positive way. For example, if you are born under Mars, you have energy, ambition and self-confidence. By adopting these qualities, your chances of succeeding increase considerably.
You can also add up certain numbers of planets (called doshas) that are associated with your astrological sign. This can help you decide on your career path and give guidance in difficult situations. There are an infinite number of ways that Vedic astrology can be used for personal growth; so start today!
2) Eat according to planetary diet
The Vedic astrological diet is a popular form of fasting, which is based on our planet’s movements and rotations. The major planets that rule our birth chart have different effects on us, but these effects vary according to where they are in their own cycle.
For example, when Mars is in a Cardinal sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn), eating hot, spicy food can bring energy and vitality as well as good fortune.
A Scorpio native might benefit from eating foods that calm inflammation such as chamomile tea. There are many other ways you can determine what type of diet would work best for you with Vedic astrology.
3) Wear your planet’s gemstone
Sure, you could use a crystal ball and check with your astrologer every time you have a problem. However, it’s simpler—and potentially more effective—to wear your planet’s gemstone.
Let’s say that you have strong Venus energy. The energy of Venus is love and beauty, so wearing a diamond will help open you up to new opportunities in these areas.
On an even deeper level, diamonds contain carbon, and it’s believed that wearing gemstones containing carbon can boost one’s healing powers.
4) Use natural remedies suggested by your star sign
Chances are that a lot of people aren’t familiar with astrological remedies for their star sign. If you know how to interpret your horoscope, you can gain insight into which natural remedies will best suit your personality.
Then, when you have a cold or are feeling down and out, these recommendations may prove beneficial and help get you back on track. Consider using Aromatherapy based on your zodiac sign.
Each oil contains distinct properties, but according to The Chakra Bible: A Comprehensive Guide To Balancing Your Chakras By Using Essential Oils by Rosalyn Bruyere – author of Aromatherapy With Essential Oils – each essential oil corresponds with one of our 12 primary chakras. So, what does that mean?
5) Use horoscope based home décor
Adding astrological elements to your home décor is a surprisingly easy way to tie together your zodiac sign with design and art. While most people think of horoscopes as a two-dimensional reading, you can incorporate them into anything from furniture placement in a room, wall art, or even flooring.
The style and feel are up to you—you can even create your own style guide for custom wall tapestries or rugs based on your sun sign.
Whatever you decide, keep it classy; at its core, astrology has been around for centuries—it’s got staying power.
6) Wear your star sign jewelry every day
For starters, wearing your star sign pendant will make you feel special. It’s a constant reminder of your birthday, something you do every year, and it’s an opportunity for you to reflect on yourself.
Moreover, wearing jewelry in general can lift your mood and energy. Just knowing that people are looking at it or noticing it—and maybe even complimenting you on it—can make your day brighter.
Of course, I don’t mean that everybody needs a bunch of different pieces of jewelry; if you have more than one gemstone piece already then that’s more than enough—especially since they all likely came with a necklace! Wearing your birthstone every day can be an easy way to get some additional benefits right away.
7) Follow planet-based routines
The position of each planet at the time of your birth has a certain influence on your personality, which means that astrology can actually have an impact on career choices and personal relationships.
For example, if you’re a Capricorn born during a full moon, you may be more likely to make risky decisions in response to stress. To bring balance back into your life, try changing up how you go about your day-to-day routines.
You might want to start setting aside some time for silent meditation or adjust when you eat meals in order to sync with what nature intended.
Our birth chart isn’t destiny, but it gives us an idea of what we should expect in life. Knowing our strengths and challenges can help us take a critical look at our path and make better decisions.
Additionally, knowing how others perceive us based on their birth chart can be a useful tool for improving relationships, whether they be personal or professional.
By being open to looking at astrology as more than fortune telling or the stars guiding your life, you’ll find that there are some pretty practical benefits to having your birth chart in mind whenever possible.
