About Evolutionary Astrology

With Evolutionary Astrology, we look at the birth chart as a blueprint of the gifts and challenges you came into this lifetime to work with in order to evolve into a more enlightened self; or put another way, to find happiness within a complicated existence. Each sign represents an identity and gives insight into  how our minds operate. Individual houses represent the particular areas of life we are working with; intimate relationships or financial circumstances, for example. The planets each represent an area of our psychological framework, such as emotion, intellect and ego.   As time moves forward from your moment of birth the movement of the planets make connections with patterns in your birth chart and highlight those areas of awareness.

Evolutionary astrology differs from predictive astrology in that the evolutionary astrologer puts you in the driver's seat. Yes, things may happen to you but you can decide how you want to work through those things. Your response is not predetermined. Understanding astrology won't help us avoid difficult times in our lives but with an insightful, experienced astrologer we can learn to navigate the difficult times more successfully. We can step through our challenges with a bit more grace as we understand ourselves on an ever deepening level.
