The science of Astrology
The following relates to those of us who use Astrology to guide others toward recovery, self-awareness, and life-change
has many branches and specialisations,
just as you find in Allopathic Medicine
and the Arts
it is vital to first diagnose the cause.
(Buddha’s Second Noble Truth.)
Awareness is everything.
Excellent times to call a skilled Astrologer
—for clarity, direction, and inspiration:
or a sudden yearning to find your unique value & purpose in the world
Due to the uniqueness of every astrology map, you have a personal timing that stimulates your growth spurts, and these can occur at any age, and in a variety of life circumstances. Your own inner resistance to change, or your desire for change, can be understood at the deepest of levels through astrological analysis.
However, there are also common ages in life that produce a kick-start to major changes in our awareness as we grow. These processes are not mysterious, but relate rhythmically (and therefore predictably) to orbiting planetary cycles.
Astrology can be highly useful at these times for comprehending your immediate challenges; and also for direction in utilising these times wisely within the overall structure of your personal life’s Purpose.
Below are some typical examples
(this list does not relate to birthdays,
but to the general year of age during which these common cycles occur—
the exact dates can be calculated in regard to your personal birth chart).
- At age 18/19:
We are now faced with powerful karmic issues that can interfere with major decisions to be made for this life’s expression. Astrology can relieve the confusion and emotional stress, and can offer guidance for the way ahead so that the deeper past within the subconscious can be placed into perspective.
- At age 28/29:
We are challenged to take on more responsibility, to take charge of our lives, to complete the karma of the past (especially if we have been slack in our 20s!), so that we may move ahead unhindered. This can be a vital time for career, even for total career change; and for others it may trigger the desire to begin a family. This timing sets the tone for at least the next decade.
- At age 36-37:
A powerful time to take advantage of career opportunities for success and expansion.
- Around age 39 (currently):
The sands beneath our feet can seem to shift! Astrology can elaborate on what has been necessary for us to release from our lives, while we are still crazily clinging. The flipside of this is a time of personal power and achievement if much work has been done. Always our choice!
- At age 41/42:
Two powerful midlife transits that can open us to spirituality, or cover our wisdom with gossamer veils. Many complex issues are dealt with at this time, including facing our aversions. Men can find this particularly confusing if they begin to open spiritually for the first time, or have remarkable dreams. A new reality can present itself as the right-brain clicks into gear. Astrology defines this clearly and shows us how to value this time of awakening.
- At age 49/50:
The culmination of all the previous experiences we have undergone. It points to our higher expression and can be a new beginning rather than a retirement! This is a major step up on the spiral of our spiritual awareness, and big for career innovation.
- Around age 57/58:
This timing completes the karma of the last 29 years, or amalgamates the lessons of our entire life if we have not been paying attention! It can be a time of public recognition and success if we have been on the right track.
- Any time when major world events, such as the Global Financial Crisis (also astrologically timed), are affecting your life significantly. Understanding the current astrological paradigm, and how you fit with it, can enhance your success both personally and professionally.
These are simply general and typical times when people engage astrologers for guidance.
It doesn’t stop at 58, though! And our need for clarity and guidance is not limited to these age cycles.
the skilled astrologer can place your life events into a larger perspective,
offering you wisdom for planning ahead for your Purpose and personal goals. The astrologer should never make your decisions for you,
but can act as a guide to assist you in flowing with your higher purpose.

a still highly relevant exposé of both our previous Sagittarius-Pluto paradigm
and our current Capricorn-Pluto paradigm
(the ultimate reasons for the GFC, violent fundamentalism, and scary politics will become evident;
plus the happier alternatives, if we each become more conscious).
