How Exactly does Astrology Work?
“Millionaires don't use Astrology, BILLIONAIRES do.” - J.P. Morgan
During my years as a Professional Astrologer, I cannot even count how many times I have been asked “How exactly does Astrology work?” And the other day while I was meditating, I came up with a way to explain astrology that I think will instantly make sense to anyone who has ever used a computer:
When a soul chooses to incarnate, a biological body is created for it to enter. This is the “hardware,” like the computer that is sitting on top of your desk.
But computers are not “empty.” In order for them to function, they must contain software. In terms of us as human beings, the “software” is the astrology Natal Chart. In a computer, the software consists of a basic “operating system” (like Windows Vista), and this can be compared with the Basic Personality Traits found in the astrology Natal Chart through the Sun Sign and the Ascendant. But there is additional software found on most computers, and the specific types determine the “abilities” that computer has.
For example, you can install Microsoft Word in order to write a book. You can install music software that allows you to download and create music. You can install bookkeeping software that allows you to do mathematical calculations. And so forth. In the astrology Natal Chart of a human being, the various “software programs” consist of the planets, signs, and houses, and these indicate the specific talents and abilities of that person. (For example, planets in Gemini or in the 3rd House correlate to “Microsoft Word” and perhaps being able to write well.)
Each computer has specific functions it can perform (because it contains specific software to do so), and will not be able to do other things because it lacks that software. In terms of the astrology Natal Chart as being our own “software programs,” this is why some of us are gifted musicians and others of us cannot carry a tune it a bucket, and why some of us are outgoing and others are shy, and why some are organized and others are not, and some are math geniuses and others of us can barely balance our checkbooks properly.
But this is not the end of the story. We are unique beings, and creative beings, and we evolve the traits of our astrology Natal Charts in very unique and personal ways. In other words, once we are born into this “hardware” physical body, and it is equipped with its unique configurations of “software” (the Natal Chart) -- well, what is the first thing you do when you buy a new computer? You start installing various files onto it. These files can be compared to the personal experiences you have as an individual throughout your lifetime. Your personal life experiences, in combination with your astrology Natal Chart, shape the directions your life will take and what you do in response to your unfolding life path.
I hope this makes things clearer!By Doria Gambino, Professional Astrologer
