Why Astrology for your spiritual path?

Astrology is an ancient tool that has been utilized for many purposes since mankind started tracking the stars. This ancient language, science, and tool will likely be your most trusted guide as you begin your spiritual path.

For some, astrology appears very quickly in their awareness as their spiritual path begins. It seems the first thing you learn is your Sun sign, and nothing else, until boom your heart and mind is open to other possibilities of living and understanding the world around you. Cause once you know your chart, you will likely want to understand the charts of the people around you, and maybe even your country's.

Astrology offers a significant amount of benefits for those on a spiritual path and journey. There's so much you can let go of, when you realize that your unique cosmic blueprint is not meant for the things people think you need to pursue or do. This cosmic weather tool will give you the answers you seek on why, when, where, what, and how for your life's path. You are unique, and you should celebrate it.

Use the list below as a project list, start with the first one, as that's the most important one of them all.

Many blessings on your journey to self empowerment and discovery!

1. Get to Know thy Self

Astrology is one of the most profound tools we have at our disposal that can catapult your self-discovery journey. With astrology for your spiritual path, you can determine where to best utilize your gifts in life, and how to maximize those gifts. By digesting and digging deep into your birth chart, you will find your greatest challenges in life, your purpose, your drive and passions, and all of the other aspects in between.

Your birth chart is your unique cosmic blueprint, meant to be understood beyond your Sun sign. With your chart, you can strategically align your projects, goals, and desires in life. Obviously, nothing can be predicted with 100% certainty, but you can certainly utilize astrology for your spiritual path to help you understand the cosmic weather and your role in it.

2. Harness Lunar Cycles for Goal-Setting Success

If you are like me, you like lists and checking things off that list. I also enjoy having an idea of what to plan for in my life. My introduction to astrology was a revelation, uncovering a natural cadence that guides us forward. Beyond the familiar cycles, such as the menstrual cycle, I was amazed to discover the profound influence of the Moon on our daily lives.

The moon's phases can support your planning efforts, helping you to align with supportive energies, that assist in creation, correction, launching new endeavors, and introspection.

Having spiritual goals is amazing! Combining your spiritual goals with the power of lunar cycles for manifestation is even more amazing! Connect with the lunar cycle, trust me. Each phase of the Moon, from New to Full, holds specific energies for manifestation, release, and growth.

Check the latest moon phase calendar for your next goal-setting session, and add new moon affirmations to tap into the Zodiac's wisdom.

Aligning your spiritual goals with the phases of the moon offers a profound pathway to self-discovery and growth. By syncing your intentions with the natural rhythms of the lunar cycle, you enhance self-awareness, improve planning, and foster motivation.

This harmonious connection with the universe promotes creativity, intuition, and a deeper sense of purpose on your spiritual journey.

3. win your New Moon Rituals add Crystals

Using crystals during new moon rituals offers a powerful way to amplify your intentions and manifest your spiritual goals. By harnessing the unique energies of crystals, you can enhance the potency of your intentions, deepen your connection to the cosmic forces at play during the New Moon phase, and facilitate personal growth and transformation.

For your next New Moon ritual, I challenge you to incorporate a few crystals that resonate with your goal. Be intentional. Write down your dreams as if they were here right now. Then place your crystal(s) over your written wish list. Light a candle, and say THANK YOU!

4. Understand How You Do Your Emotions

One of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, is understanding your emotions. What are your core emotional needs? That's what your Moon sign will tell you. And if you have your Moon sign in Pisces, than you need lots of solitude and room for dreaming. You also likely need to learn and understand how to hold energetic and physical boundaries with others. Don't be so dreamy Pisces! 😉

Here are 3 core questions to ask yourself to better understand your Moon sign:

  1. How Do I React to Emotional Situations?

Reflect on your immediate emotional response to challenges, comfort, and emotional situations. Do you respond with sensitivity and empathy, or are you more detached and rational? For example, a Water Moon sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) might react with deep emotional intensity, while an Air Moon sign (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) could approach these situations with logic and discussion.

  1. What Do I Need to Feel Secure and Comforted?

Consider what environments, situations, or relationships make you feel safe and nurtured. Is it through verbal affirmation, physical security, or emotional connection? Earth Moon signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) often find comfort in material stability and practical routines, whereas Fire Moon signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) may require independence and excitement to feel secure.

  1. Where Do I Find My Emotional Refuge?

Think about where you turn when you need to recharge or deal with your feelings. Is it through solitude, engaging with family and friends, or immersing yourself in creativity or intellectual pursuits? Your preference can hint at your Moon sign's element. For instance, Water signs might seek emotional solace in intimate conversations, while Earth signs could prefer solitary activities that ground them.

5. get personal with your subconscious

Imagine the sky at the moment you were born as a big, 360-degree pie, divided into 12 slices. Each slice is called a “house” in astrology, and each one represents a different area of your life. Just like different rooms in a house have their own purpose (like the kitchen for cooking or the bedroom for sleeping), each astrological house has its own area of life it talks about.

Your 1st House (The Self), is all about you—your appearance, personality, and the way you start things. Your 9th House (Philosophy and Travel), is about higher learning, travel, and your beliefs or philosophy. And the 12th House (The Unconscious), helps you to understand the hidden parts of your life, secrets, and things you might not be aware of, including your subconscious.

If you have Jupiter in the 12th House, you are encouraged to delve into your inner world, and seek wisdom through introspection and quiet reflection.

6. Astrology is your ticket to the party

As you navigate the early stages of your spiritual path, you'll soon discover that astrology and other ancient tools are the keys to discovering the mysteries of life. Then, if you're like me, you will wanna talk to every single person out there about it! You want to learn, study all of the astrology books, and make meaning of it all. Why is astrology so freakingly accurate and mystical at the same time? I don't know all of the answers, but I highly recommend doing this journey with friends.

Joining a like-minded community can profoundly enrich your spiritual path, offering a unique blend of self-discovery, cosmic alignment, and community support. Our free Quest Mystic Facebook Group, offers a safe space to explore the questions, help you navigate life's cycles with grace, and introduce you to a variety of spiritual philosophies and practices. Don't be shy, we would love to have you join us!

7. a Navigational Tool for Life's Journey

As I said before, astrology is a multi-functional tool. You can use it to time projects for maximum effect, you can better prepare for the Mercury Retrograde seasons by tracking your own transits, you can see what you need out of your most intimate relationships, you can see where money will flow easily or not…. and so much more!

The first step is learning your natal chart, as that has lots to say. And as you learn astrology, you will realize the connections between it and the world around you.

Your natal chart and the ongoing movements of the planets can serve as a navigational tool, offering guidance and insights into the best times for action, reflection, growth, and rest.

Learning astrology is a long process, not one that comes about overnight, but you can gain so much by just understanding your Rising sign, Sun and Moon sign. Those are the core three. Start there.

8. Embrace your Fire for inspiration

Each of us has all 3 fire signs in our natal charts: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. The three of them represent the fire element. The Fire element in astrology represents one of the four fundamental energies that manifest through the zodiac signs, influencing personality traits, behaviors, and life approaches. Fire embodies dynamism, inspiration, and the spark of life.

Whether or not your Sun or Moon is in a fire sign, it doesn't lessen the impact of using crystals for fire signs to help kick start your passion and a new view on life.

9. Find Your Community

For many, astrology is a gateway to spiritual awakening. It raises questions about fate, free will, and the nature of the universe, encouraging a deep exploration of spiritual beliefs. It certainly was for me. Once I allowed myself to accept that I was most definitely Woo Woo, then all I could do was find a group of people I could connect with, and vibe with.

When Saturn and then Jupiter transited my 11th house (Capricorn), I made great strides in finding my peoples. It was during those times that I did my new moon ritual to call in the right group for my path. I needed a group that could see me blossom, encourage me when I was down, and to help me understand the mysterious questions in life. Community is great.

Next time there's a New Moon in your 11th house (that would be yearly), get out your journal, write down your wishes and take action to call in your community. Your heart group.

10. Crystal Healing for your zodiac sign

If we're going to talk about the subconscious, our emotions, our heart community, and how to spark new life into our projects, then we should also chat about how to use crystals for each zodiac sign for healing, transformation, protection, chakra balancing, money manifestation, etc.

Remember, your chart embodies all 12 signs: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and last but not least, my fave Pisces. (I'm a Pisces Rising, hence why I'm here spreading the wisdom of astrology).

Explore beyond your Sun sign and see how crystals for other zodiac signs could benefit you. Look up your Moon sign, Rising sign, Venus and Mars if you want to get crafty!

11. Are you Psychic?

Everybody I know is curious about psychic abilities, especially if they can find any indication of them in their astrology chart. Did you know that some of the most well-known psychics of our time are also astrologers? Edgar Cayce, known as the “Sleeping Prophet”, Nostradamus and Jeane Dixon were all astrologers and shared their psychic gifts with the world. What do you think they had in common astrologically?

I dove into Edgar Cayce's chart with my checklist of astrological indicators for psychic abilities in the birth chart, and found he had Neptune and Uranus, along with tons of Water energy in his chart. His gifts are numerous, and the amount of information he channeled is astounding. You can read more about him and his teachings here: Edgar Cayce’s Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.).

Perhaps, you also have psychic gifts?
