How did you get into astrology?
Hi! Just wondering everyone else´s journey on astrology? What introduced you to it, how would you rate your mastery, how did it help you?

I have a lot of questions surrounding it as well, such as, despite astrology are you religious? Or if you have a partner, is your partner aware of astrology too? But I guess that´s for another day, just trying to know some people here because I started finding joy on reading discussions here :-)

I´ll start with me!

What introduced me to astrology:
My earliest memory ever is how my mom´s closest friend would always say that we´re both Aries. I was probably 5, and there I was getting Aries-related gifts from her.

But the first time ever I was intrigued to actually learn, was over the pandemic (I was 21 years old). I don´t know what exactly, but something in me craved to know deeper about the world, about people. I would actually learn something new everyday.

Rating my ability:
4/10? I get most things (Planets, houses, degrees, aspects) although I can´t really read charts yet, finding patterns nor themes yet. I wish to learn horary astrology hehe.

How astrology helped me:
I think astrology is a holistic study that allows me to see people/events as spheres rather than something linear. I hope that makes sense. I´m allowed to see things with more dimension, I guess. And I am a very curious person overall, I would always try to find patterns and themes of the world, and with astrology it´s basically that.

Well I got into astrology few years back about maybe 7 or 8 years ago.i got into it because of some movies about witches.i watched and researched about some people who were witches and how till today they believe in it.and some people where doing readings like tarot,coffee and some other occult stuff with ghosts and then astrology came up and how it´s more practical and reading charts.i knew about zodiacs and their descriptions but never dived into it deeply and then I was getting more into it in 2016 and how some astrologists can predict some events.i can say I not a really religious person but I have strong faith in I can say astrology can be true sometimes but we humans many times it´s us that can change our future Or present by just living in it do things.

I always loved astrology, how you can understand others etc.
I started reading everyday before 2 months ago, because i wanna know what my career should be. I didn´t find out yet but i m learning more everyday! I can say that i had 2-3 correct mini predictions already but i m still toooo beginner.
My husband laughs on me when i talking about astrology but when i came true he was surprised and i was "i told you so" :61:
I believe in God but i m not so religious in my everydayness.
I could rate me 2/20 , i have a loooong way..

What about you ?

It was a gradual and slow process. I remember when I was 8, my classmate was reading horoscopes and I joined in by asking what does it predict for me. She asked what my sign was and I thought that I was a Leo because Leo is 5th sign and May is 5th month lol. She(a Sagittarius) quickly pointed out my misconception and that was one of the "is the world dumb? Why all this complexity" moments. Of course, I didn´t chase after astrology at 8 lol for the longest time I did not even know my Moon sign, but I occasionally shared astrology related posts on social media. Then, around 2018 I opened my chart and was confused to say the least. I guess the only thing that attracted me more to it was numerology in my chart. Gemini Sun at 1°11´11", Scorpio Moon at 29°29´ and some other repeating numbers.
I didn´t understand a thing about it till about 2 years ago. Started off with western, but it felt lacking so I sought after Vedic teacher and the person who read my chart offered me to take his classes. Been learning every weekend since and we´re only scratching the surface. My title of mastery is master(in the future 🤣), pretty novice, still 🙂

It didn´t really help me much in the beginning, if anything I got infected with a virus known as astrological anxiety. Note; It´s treatable, not curable lol

Yes, despite this and the fact that I´m spiritual, I am very fond of Hinduism. God is not a belief, it´s a fact, wether it was the big bang or who knows what, it´s the god, but of course, I got a fancy god who understands me because I was built by Gods design. Gotta be a retard to create something more sophisticated than yourself? How does that work? I guess perfectly with how society has been devolving 🤣

Hi Starryeye!

I´m curious as how your affinity with occult stuff sit well with having faith in God, only if you would answer!

Because I grew up heavily catholic/christian, although I knew I have always been agnostic since the age of 12? slowly reframing the idea of singular God, but I do believe in a higher entity and now I just call it the universe :78:

What about you?

Hi Spirto!

That´s nice to hear. I´d want to know more about your predictions! Also what did you use to predict, is it horary astrology?

Hi Oxx!

What entices you to learn Vedic more than Tropical? I´m pretty new too, and would like to learn about Vedic astrology but it feels like a different realm for some reason (I saw my sidereal chart and didn´t feel connected)

Also which chart of yours would you say relate to you the most?

I knew about Astrology when I was like 12 or 13..I only knew I was a ♏ at the time but didn´t really dive deeper until I was 21. I am far from being a master of it but I am noticing a gradual improvement in my knowledge of Astrology.

I don´t use Astrology for predictive purposes and only focus on Natal Astrology and transits affecting my chart. I still don´t know if God is fine with me learning this topic as Astrology by means of divination is prohibited in the Bible. But does natal knowledge count as divination? I wrestle with that sometimes.

For one, I couldn´t find a clear and defined path of learning. There was no moderm discipline that included traditional as part of its syllabus. Modern and traditional appear to be at war somehow anyway, but either way, the work of others I explored seemed very surface level in a sense that there´s no reasoning behind what is why while in Vedic, you must know what is why because it is the key to expansion. In simple terms, you don´t just eat the bread, you know how to make the bread.

Ohh yes, it definitely is a different realm. You step out of your mind(tropical is based on times of the year) and step into the body(sidereal is based on constellations). Both work, but in different manners.

Sidereal, because Nakshatras just work.
