Astrology has been around since ancient times, can’t stress this enough. It’s a spiritual, unique, and intuitive skill, talent and art that people just can’t seem to get over - nor do they want to. As humans, we are naturally curious about ourselves and everyone we interact with. We are the diggers of information, and it’s human for us to form bonds (emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually) with others. So why do people turn to astrology so often?

Simple: it helps us understand and accept ourselves and others. Sure, there are multiple ways to do that, aside from astrology, but we want answers. I love to think of astrology as a way to form stronger bonds with others. Nobody knows why astrology is so accurate, but if you’ve never gotten your birth chart read then you can’t really judge it.
If you had your chart read, but hated it then all I have to ask you is: did you get your chart from a naturally talented astrologist or did you get it auto-generated from a website?
If it’s the former, then please share your experience with me and let me know why you felt it wasn’t accurate. If it was the latter, then all I have to say is shame on you lol. I am so against auto-generated reports. Call me a hater if you want, but a computer can’t tell you about yourself and what you need to improve on.
Regardless, there’s no way of getting around why people love astrology so much. And nobody can explain why spiritual readers, spiritual healers, astrologists, etc., are so in tune with the energies of the universe or why the stars and planets tell us things that are so damn accurate. But there are things unseen by the eye that only the heart and soul can see and feel.

There are so many ways to get a list of your planets and houses, almost always for free. Hell, I even offer that for you guys as a way to get started. However, it won’t tell you important details that you should know, so here’s a list I compiled of why it’s important to get your chart read by a real astrologist:
You are more than just your Sun sign
It’s common for people to know their Sun sign, but that’s where most people end. They have no clue that they have multiple zodiac signs and planets. They don’t know that this is the main reason why people are truly unique. Some people relate more to their Moon sign than they do their Sun sign. A lot of people are also unaware that your planets combine their energies into one.
For example: I am a Sagittarius, but my Moon is Virgo. I relate to both because I’m a hybrid of both. I see myself as a very detailed person like a Virgo, as most of you already know (if you’ve been following me on social media), but I also have a sunny and impulsive side like a Sagittarius. I also possess a lot of Scorpio in my chart, which creates a different type of energy. Fire, water, and earth work together to fulfill my destiny. What is yours? Astrology is one way of pointing you in that direction.
You get more insight and detail
When your chart is read, you get information that you’ve never seen before and can’t get anywhere online. You’ll have an in-depth view of why and how your planets work together, how your houses react, and what your inner strengths and weaknesses are. You also get to engage with someone who has more experience than you, so you even get to learn part of the craft.
I’m not quite sure how others operate their readings, but I like to go full-out and write mini-novels. I take my time because you’re worth my time. For me, it’s all about helping you learn your inner powers, elemental energies, strengths, and weaknesses. I cannot let you walk away without knowing what you’re truly capable of.
You learn how to accept yourself and others
There once was a time, for me, when accepting others was hard to do. I found that astrology helped to eliminate those boundaries. When you know more about astrology, even if you’re not a professional, you find yourself wanting to understand others on a deeper and more spiritual level. Once you learn their sign(s), you start to tell yourself that that’s the reason why they are the way that they are. It’s just one way to really get to know someone and to pave the way of acceptance and appreciation for others.

Astrology has also helped me to understand myself and what I’m capable of doing. Sure, it was very difficult for me to process that at first – nobody wants to believe they have flaws – but after time, I learned that I have to accept both the good and bad. Everyone has the chance to change, everyone has the chance to be a better person. Astrology is one of the ways that can help you with that. For believers, it’s very therapeutic and can even be spiritually healing.
I’m not trying to push my beliefs down your throat. It’s ultimately up to you to get a reading or not. Everyone has their own way of dealing with life in general. Whether you get it through me or through someone else, it’s your choice. You have to be in tune with yourself to really soak in all of the information and to heed the calls of the universe.
I suggest you do your research on any astrologist – look for anything they create and see if it resonates with you (if it speaks to your soul). Listen to your intuition, never ignore it, and work harder to become a better person inside and out.
