Soul Astrology is the name given to forms of astrology that draw upon psychological astrology, transpersonal psychology and esoteric astrology, to create a model of the Universe and how we fit into it.

Many eminent people throughout history have also been astrologers. Carl Jung, one of the fathers of modern psychology, and the great mathematician Pythagoras, were also accomplished astrologers.

What Is My Soul Sign?

Your Soul Sign is your Rising Sign, or Ascendant. It is the sign that was rising over the horizon at the point of your birth, and therefore is the 'dawn' of your life. It is the most important sign in Soul Astrology because it indicates your Soul's growth and what you came here to do.

In contrast, your sun and moon signs are the dual aspects of your personality: your sun sign is that which is in the light, that you are conscious of, and your moon sign indicates your 'shadow' or aspects of your personality that you are mostly unaware of.

Buddha taught that the true nature of our mind is one of pristine clarity like a stream of crystal clear mountain water. From this place, our perception is exquisite: all is known. We are clairvoyant, clairaudient, and clairsentient because all is clear: nothing is in the way, we have clear sight, sound and knowing. We are omniscient, all really is known. For most of us the spiritual path is a way of returning to this utmost clarity.

Soul Astrology can be developed to the point where it becomes an effective tool on our path: a map, or guide, that can assist us in understanding our true nature. The combined Sun / Moon 'personality' can indicate why we don't experience expanded perception: it reflects what stands in our path in the form of habitual patterns of thinking, feeling, and expressing, that cloud the clarity of our perceptions.

Through awareness, we can use Soul Astrology to understand those patterns of thought and behavior that we need to release, heal or change so that we can experience our mind's true nature.

"Light is undiminishable, eternal and omni-present. In every religion that existed these qualities have been recognized as divine. So that we are forced to the conclusion that light, actual sensible light, is indeed the direct vehicle of divinity: it is the consciousness of God."
-Rodney Collin, The Theory of Celestial Influences

When each one of us has become an exquisite observer of Self, with integrated knowledge from our personal experience and an intimate relationship with our own soul, we will recognize our true nature as one of light, and Soul Astrology as a true science of inner knowing.
