Why Astrology? There’s a long answer to that question…but for now, the short answer is this: Self-Knowledge.
Or look at it another way…
You are a myth.
You are the main character in a really great story, and your astrological birth chart is like the Wikipedia entry on you.
It describes who you are, what you are, what challenges you came here to face, and what gifts you have to help you along on your journey. The birth chart flags the main themes and concepts that will come to define you and your life. The birth chart is your plot synopsis and your character summary.
Don’t you want to know what yours says…?
