To start to understand and study Astrology : simple notions

I have written this in a forum. I hereby transcribe it.

To start:
I must also tell you I feel humble to see these workings of astrology without fully understanding why.
I think there are basic archetypes of energies and these correlate at least with our natures down here, and the events down here.
Do you know the "as above so below"?
It's a kind of that the way I think astrology works.

Anyway in a practical level I would start by, in a silenced way, to look at what you are and you see in a natal chart analysis, and this to some of your close relatives. But please understand that many do not want to know about astrology or their charts. And many others just take the "newspaper" approach.

If you send me your birth date, I can start giving you some clues about the nature you decide to incarnate here, your personality. Of course other than, you have a specific soul essence, a specific degree of evolution, and a free-will that it never seen in a natal chart! 
However this week I will be busy, Tongue so my best guess is to do your study and ask me anything you want. Big Grin

To start, there are twelve basic archetypes called the signs of the zodiac. Every planet and sun and the moon placed or passing by in a specific one, colours, as if it focused towards Earth, its energy. Please understand that this is just an analogy, it may not be the real way things work since I do not even know it!

You can also use wikipedia or google for more an astrological start.

The signs are as following. It starts from Aries, the Ram, to Pisces the fishes, from the most individual-related to a more global-related. But this has nothing to do I think with STS or STO.
It has to be with this: Aries is fiery, impulsive, it marks the very beggining of a creation, therefore Aries brings a powerful criative and impulsive energetic to a person that has a sun sign or rising (ascendant) of this sign. One example is Leonardo da Vinci, a great genious, but many under Aries are unfortunately prone to agressive behaviour. It then goes more and more outwards. Taurus refers to a stabilization of action, bringing it to earth. These are more solid steady, people. Also related to nature, sensuality and the senses. Gemini to a mental analysis to see the opposites, mind and body, material and spiritual, for example. It is also communication outwards. Therefore these are very talkative, inventive and also gifted people. Cancer refers to an emotional confrontation, to nurturing the growing soul (brings criative, sensitive people). Leo is the archetype for the powerful self-criative and expressive energy of the personality or higher self (if more evolved). Think of Obama for example. Virgo is finding him/herself with a purpose, therefore it is a highly inclined sign for service to others, it rules work and routine. Libra is balancing, of opposites, of diplomacy, relationships, romantism, of spiritual balance. Gandhi was a typical Libra. Scorpio is self-transcendence, desire-transcendence (this and Taurus are signs very much dealing with the nature of desire). Bjork is a Scorpio. Sagittarius is one-focus, expansion, exploration, visionary. Capricorn is going up and finding a roof, if you like the analogy. It brings pessimist or materialist people so they can really find their high spiritual (and social) purpose in life. Aquarius is brotherhood and a pour of knowledge and humanism. Abraham Lyncon, Bob Marley, Copernicus as different examples. Pisces is self-transcendence, beyond the material, beyond the emotional. Einstein and Michaelangelo are examples.
I am free to speak more about these archetypes.

Briefly for the planets
Sun is the solar logos, the source, the soul, the shining influence and purpose
Moon emotions, needs and past links
And the rest I guess you know
Mars=action/motivation/impulse to act, move
Jupiter=philosophical ideals, visions, opportunities to grow
Saturn=structure, getting real, getting simples and real
Uranus=break from opression, awakening, innovation
Neptune=dissolution of barriers that allows us to see the united all
Pluto=transformation, crumbling structures and power, to bring a new rebirth

Then you can have placements of both of these in the houses of a chart. The ascendant marks your visions of the world, your new impulse. And then on, you have three other important points, the descendant, the IC and the MC. and these form 12 houses, quite similar and related but diferent from each sign
However as with the signs, it is important to understand that despite the fact that each archetype is different they blend one into the next. However the differences between one and the next are often very clear to see.~
Be also aware that a mix of a chart that is equilibrated with many different energies may create a person that it is difficult to guess these different energies, as you would see them all blend and manifested one here, the other there.. When you have people like with a Cancer with strong water element in their charts, then you see that you have identified easily what is Cancer is many different people. Then it is really easy to pinpoint these things and to understand them. But notice that the archetype is manifested also in different levels and ways!! For example, there are Aquarius that are eccentric and activist singers, other are great scientists, and other great thinkers and freedom fighters. All related to the same global brotherhood and mental/knowledge archetypem manifested in different ways.

Then you have the natal chart which marks what you have brough to the current incarnation, mostly your personality, talents, motivations, issues to deal, purposes, etc...
The transits reflect the passing planets through your map and correlate with important times of change in life, wth catalysts, with turning points, ending, dealing with certain issues, focusing in a specific area of life...
Also, when planets form geometrical aspects between each other, their energies are highly magnified, so one studies and looks for these during natal chart analysis and transits.
For example, I am Sagittarius (sun sign), therefore I tend to focus in specific goals that are far reaching, expanding myself and focus in uniting things. In my chart sun is Conjuncted Neptune, so I have a personality with quite dissolved personal barriers and sensitivity. These are placed in eleventh house (which rules brotherhood ideals), so my personality (focused and sensitive) focus on those purposes. I had a transit in 2006 when Pluto passed in my natal sun position, and that time I moved from focusing on friends and carrier (also brotherhood) to more groups and idealistic activities (which in my perspective favour more a STO work). This works, even when you don't know nothing about astrology (then it works partially unconsiously to that person)
This is just one example in how astrology may help us to understand our lives. One advice: I would not control my life or others, with the use of astrology.


Tarot and correspondence to Planets in Astrology

4 Emperor, Aries
5 Hierophant, Taurus
6 Lovers, Gemini
7 Chariot, Cancer (these four makes much sense)

11 Strength, Leo
9 Hermit, Virgo (it comes two after Cancer, it makes sense; this could be also Pisces or Scorpio, after the Libra 8)
8 Justice, Libra
13 Death, Scorpio

14 Temperance, Sagittarius (fusion of opposites, united focus, this could be also Libra)
15 Devil, Capricorn (and this could be Scorpio) (the Tower 16 would be Scorpio too)
17 Star, Aquarius (or Sagittarius)
18 Moon, Pisces

These are make sense (except Emperor as Libra):
Emperor4=Libra, Hierophant5=Scorpio, Lovers6=Sagittarius, Chariot7=Capricorn, Aquarius8=Justice, Pisces9=Hermit

But these make more sense!:
Leo8=Justice, Virgo9=Hermit, The wheel 10=Libra, Strength11=Scorpio, Sacrifice12=Sagittarius, Death13=Capricorn, Temperance14=Aquarius

This backwards order make also sense, except some:
Empress3=Pisces, Emperor4=Aquarius Hierophant5=Capricorn, Lovers6=Sagittarius, Chariot7=Scorpio, Libra8=Justice, Virgo9=Hermit, Wheel10=Leo, Strength11=Cancer, 12Sacrifice=Gemini, 13Death=Taurus, 14Temperance=Aries

Hierophant5=Cancer, Lovers6=Gemini, Chariot7=Taurus, Justice8=Aries, Hermit9=Pisces, Wheel10=Aquarius, Strength11=Capricorn, 12Sacrifice=Sagittarius, 13Death=Scorpio, 14Temperance=Libra

This one of the order that makes more sense!
Fool0=Aries, Magician1=Taurus, High Priestess2=Gemini, Empress3=Cancer, Emperor4=Leo, Hierophant5=Virgo, Lovers6=Libra, Chariot7=Scorpio, Justice8=Saggitarius, Hermit9=Capricorn, Wheel10=Aquarius, Strength11=Pisces!!

15Devil=Pisces or more sense with 16Tower=Pisces, or jumping to the order above of Temperance as Sagittarius.

Ordered are the archetypes such as:
first seven cards= related to mind

2012, what will happen probably, and the years ahead - the societal and spiritual revolution to a gradual new evolution step of mankind

RE: Harvesting and living in a 4D world
Hmmmm... It seems obvious that during the past few centuries a few important things happened: opportunities for both STS or STO polarization!
Some examples are: the urge for domination, corruption and opportunities for self-pleasure (STS) increased as we approached 2012; the opportunities for STO work have also increase, since our society had grown to a very complex state, providing many different ways of living, travelling and contacting people. There were many new intentional communities established in the sixties and new ways of having honesty and freedom in relationships. So, I guess there had been much MORE opportunities and catalysts, as we approach 2012, for both STS or STO polarization. This is fairly obvious.
The same thing rings true for an increased contact of ET inteliggences to Earth inhabitants, either by pure inspiration, guidance, channeling or the STS contacts.

It seems that this is the HARVEST, the POLARIZATION.
Then, it also seems that more gradually the vibrations have been increasing. We had an approaching unstable 20th century but perhaps it is more harmonious now.
It could be finnaly be the transition 3D to 4D as we approach 2012 and the decades following a gradual transition, for our society.

There it still remains two things to be manifested fully:
1- removal of old 3D and STS patterns of thinking and 2- further association between STO entities for true STO work:
Since the sixties we have seen much of this (and even before with the end of slavery, french and american revolutions, new political ideals, new ecological ideals, minorities having rights, the emancipation of women, the internet), but the service that we provide is still some to STS goverments, so I guess this economic-social-ecological crisis is just one of the last catalysts before the 2012 turning point! It makes much sense to me. It provides a further opportunity for graduation and polarization, and increase in vibration. Therefore the Earth changes do not need to be radical, at least when society seems to be more radically transformating. But I still thing these Earth change will still happen, to some degree, to provide full catalyst for association between STO entities. Hard times such a depression provide that chance. STS and 3D old patterns crumble and STO opportunities abound more easily.
If 2012 does not bring such dramatic events, or if society does not change that much, I still think 2012 is still a turning point with much activity around the date (at least the economic depression and the powerful catalyst it provides, and a changein societal structures, and thus opportunities for STO work) Curiously, astrologically, in 2011 both Uranus enters Aries initially a new cycle of change and radical turning points (as I have stated for the 1760s, 1848 and 1930s periods of awareness for new rights and societal reorganization), and Neptune enters Pisces (new spiritual ideals), Pluto cycles also correlate with these things (I do not want to go much into detail herein, but you see the point, in how much turns around the next few years) Then, I would see, depending in how much our peoples change between 2010 and 2025, a century ahead with not so much sudden change but more gradual change, permitting the true STO work, in a gradual way, in both a pragmatic way, structural (communities, families, cities) and spiritual (more connection to green ray, love, union). This would be the start of our memory complex formation. Rolleyes 4D would manifest then, in this transition 100-700 years period, by a gradual vibrational increase of the peoples.
I think by 2100 and 2200 much will have change! How much of our society remains is the unknown answer. But mostly only STO aspects should remain, even if physical. I do not see any puff into the air because, you know, 4D is already here. You can meditate or calm down and sometimes you enter it for a few seconds. It happens to me when sometimes see powerful storms, those small breakthroughts of something else...
You can trip mushrooms (not so recommended) and you see it even more. You have lucid dreams you see it here. You the reality is already it in an astral way. I think, as people during the next centuties fully realize and access to this, the consensus will be more and more of that. We would just became more aware of that.
But I dont reject the possibility of something happening around 2011 or 2012 that would bring many of us closer to that. Maybe a few, maybe many, maybe widespread (but that would cause chaos to many unprepared). I think things would only get much more sensitive and emotional, so unprepared would crush or awake, and the rest would increase more their vibrations.
I also foresee some really powerful STO inspirational entities incarnating at this time and therefore providing even more catalyst, such as Christ did 2000 years ago. Sleepy Seth said this once.
I based much of this in my intuition, logic, some astrology, and some dream visions. It all makes sense now.

I am sorry for the really long text!

The big question now is: how can we provide much STO opportunities for work, service and association, transcending our current societal structures (besides a more positive approach to family, and without the need for include a head-jump into intentional communities, such as for us many whom live in cities, and in relative isolation to our neighboours
