Astrology Q&A: Astrological Forecasts–Which Ones to Follow
“When reading or listening to astrological forecasts, how would I know whether to listen to Sun sign, Moon sign, or my Rising sign?”
My advice is to avoid Sun sign, Moon sign, Rising sign, and other, similar astrological forecasts (“horoscopes”). They’re too general to apply to any specific person.
This type of astrology contrasts with ancient methodologies and didn’t exist before the 1900s. It’s comparable to processed junk food, which ultimately only harms you.
If the forecast is instead relaying information about what’s occurring with the Sun or Moon (quite different than standard horoscopes), for example, then that may be a little helpful because you could apply it to your natal patterns, if you’re familiar with them.
Still, hundreds of natal factors form patterns, and the Sun, Moon, and Ascendant are only a small part all the possible patterns. The symbolism of any single factor is either strengthened or mitigated by the energy of the others. Transiting Saturn in Aries, for example, may be part of a complex pattern that symbolizes unwelcome relationship challenges to one person. To the next person, it may have zero relevance.
Although you can get an idea of the cyclical nature of life by tracking basic astrology events, accurate prediction and personality assessment require a highly personalized approach.
