Astrology can teach us so much about the best ways to progress through life. However, like all things, it’s the regular use of astrology as a tool and practice that will really create a major difference in our lives. Instead of seeing your personal experiences at surface level, astrology explains which celestial bodies are influencing you to the greatest magnitude, what they’re trying to teach you, and how you can navigate day-to-day life with greater awareness. When your vision is clear and you understand how cosmic energy is influencing you, strategizing your way forward and improving your life is easy.
Astrology is the best tool out there for self development. It’s the translation of cosmic energy that illuminates what’s operating in the universe, charging your experiences, and challenging you to grow on physical and spiritual levels.
Track The Lunar Cycle
The moon is the fastest moving celestial body in the astrological wheel that spends approximately 2.5 days in each zodiac sign. Its 28-day cycle is observable to the eye (this is why it changes in appearance) and causes shifts to how you instinctively react to the world around you and how you feel energetically. The zodiac sign which the moon transits can tell you a lot about what we are universally experiencing internally. The moon phases also indicate different opportunities and challenges headed our way each week. For example, the first quarter moon (moon squaring the sun) signifies that you may experience obstacles and resistance when expressing yourself or understanding your feelings. The Waning gibbous moon (moon trine sun) indicates a time for positive reflections and gratitude for what’s going well in your life. Attuning yourself to the Lunar Cycle will raise your awareness of how you and others can expect to feel each week and how the different moon phases influence changes in your life. The My Moon Phase app is one that I personally use each day to track the movements of the moon. (You can download it for free here: Apple / Android)
Read Your Horoscope
When you read your horoscope, how much of it sits with you for the entire month? How much of it goes over your head if it doesn’t immediately resonate? Your monthly horoscope is an energetic forecast of your experiences, which uses the transiting planets against your birth chart to illuminate where the planets are adding pressure or bringing unique opportunities your way. The next time you read your horoscope, use it to make a list of intentions and short-term goals that you can work toward achieving during the month. For example, if your horoscope says the focus for you will be on your relationships, you can set grounded and realistic goals to progress in your partnerships, speak less and listen more, balance giving and receiving, and heal old wounds so that you can express love in healthy ways.
Getting into the practice of reading your daily horoscope will help you understand how the planet’s regular movements and alignments influence your emotional experiences. This will clarify why you feel more energized or drawn to rest and how you can flow with the cosmos instead of working against it. Your daily horoscope will help you make adjustments to your routine or to-do list if the planetary alignments aren’t supportive of what you want to get done. Or, it will encourage you to find better ways to complete these tasks and shed light on how you can better understand others.

Follow Your Transits
If you’re feeling stuck, unable to find your way through your emotions, or you are having trouble understanding why your life is unfolding the way it is, consulting with an astrologer is the best way to go to understand your transits. Most astrologers offer classic birth chart readings that take you through the cosmic blueprint you are born with. However, sessions such as the Jupiter Jewel 30-Minute Reading are designed to specifically look at your transits (how the current planetary alignments influence you). In the 30-Minute Reading, personalized insights on how the planets are interacting with your birth chart placements and what this means for your life experiences and growth are shared.
While this isn’t a quick-fix for your troubles, investing in seasonal check-ins with an astrologer will give you a spiritual and astrological perspective that you may not have considered on how to navigate what’s currently on your plate. It’s easier to make decisions when you’re clear on how things work energetically, and you’re aware of what energies are fuelling your experiences, why they’re challenging you, and what you’re destined to learn through your experiences.
