Astrology is conscious awareness of subconscious
The universe, the placement of planets in relationship to the time/place you were born on the planet.
Earth, offers influences that were chosen by your soul and can be used by you as you move through your life.
Zodiac signs indicate the soul’s intention for learning at the onset of your lifetime. Planets influence the mode or activity that can be used to bring this learning about.
The universe exists as part of creation.
It does not determine; it merely exists. You, the thinker, determine how any influence will be used, whether productive or nonproductive, in your life.
