The planets of the zodiac dictate the paths our lives are bound to follow. The energies sent our way thought the universe determine our fate, our characteristics, our lessons. The Sun (self), the Moon (emotion), Mercury (mind), Venus (love), Mars(drive), Jupiter (good fortune), Saturn (responsibility), Uranus(eccentricity), Neptune (nebulousness), and Pluto (transformation) each depict a role in our lives. As they transit through the universe we feel their pull and influence throughout our lives; day-in, day-out. We should never use astrology to elicit fear, to excuse failure, to avoid responsibility. Ideally, astrology will help you engage more fully with life. Do not underestimate the power of the zodiac for it holds your destiny. There is power in knowledge and knowledge fills an open mind.
