The potential of psychological astrology and its limits

To realize and encourage potentials, or: Be what you already are.

Psychological astrology is no fortune-telling, even though it contains a number of prognostic methods. The latter are employed to focus on a peculiar moment in time and its possible effects on our individual experience. It is no religion; it does not imply any moral judgments and thus does not supply a catalog of guidelines.

Based on the natal horoscope and the actual time frame, psychological astrology outlines tendencies, potentials and developmental aims as well as inner conflicts, inhibitions and anxieties. It can help us to raise our awareness accordingly and hence enables us to become who we already are.

After all, it's us who have to undertake the journey to our innermost self. A horoscope can't tell anything about what we have learned so far from previous experiences, what gender we are, whether we are a human being, an animal, idea or object - but it can actually circumscribe a peculiar moment in time and place. The natal horoscope always stays the same - whether we are eight months or eighty years old. Still, it describes our deepest self that evolves throughout life; just like the tree that grows from a seed to an oak will always stay the same tree. Your horoscope will constantly create new meanings for you according to your life situation and cannot be replaced by anything else. Why not take this incredible chance to get to know yourself better and make the most of your potentials?

Psychological astrology is an excellent means of approaching problems and their causes without taking a detour. At the same time it offers an individual and resource oriented approach to resolve the issues at stake. Often, advancements go hand in hand with crises, sometimes they are even triggered by them. "Whatever comes into your life that needs to be there": According to Liz Greene, psychological astrology is teleological - for everything that happens to us, there is a reason and an underlying purpose.
