I think it would be fair to say that many of us are on a search for some kind of meaning in life. Some believe the path we tread is based on free will, while others believe it is karmic destiny. In any case, we often struggle to understand why we have been dealt certain cards. If you've ever wondered what the future has in store for you, consider looking to the stars to find out.
Astrology is an age-old divination tool used to predict events in peoples' lives based on a study of where the planets and stars were at the exact time (or month) of their birth. Astrologers study movements in the solar system to see how the planets aspect parts of your birth chart in different areas and stages of your life, covering everything from career right through to personal relationships.
These days many astrologers use holistic methods so they can give you strategies on how best to deal with potential times of difficulty, and how to get the most out of opportunities and good fortune when it presents itself. Knowing how to work with the energies can leave you feeling empowered. They can even provide insight into your soul's purpose and what karmic lessons you're due to receive in this lifetime.
Having dabbled in astrology for many years now, there's certainly no shortage of fascinating books and websites that explain the complexities of astrology, however in my experience, nothing compares to getting a personalised reading from a certified astrologer. Readings commonly take between 1 – 2 hours and usually come with your own personalised birth chart and sometimes with extra reading material to take home. You may even have the option to record your reading so you can listen to it over again.
So if you haven't had a reading before, I highly recommend it. There are many astrologers based in Brisbane and its surrounds, and here are a few I've found:
Adham Sammam I've personally had a reading from Adham in the past and found him to be very informative. He doesn't have a website, but you can contact him on email@example.com.
Babula Clement Babula offers readings in person if you're in Brisbane, but you can even get a reading over the phone or over Skype if you're interstate or overseas. Call (07) 3378 9649 or visit her website for more information.
Maggie Kerr Maggie is world renowned astrologer, who has over 28 years of experience. You can call her (07) 5594 5959, or visit her website to find out more.
If you want to find an astrologer close to home, probably your best bet is to contact the Queensland Federation of Astrologers Inc. (QFA) and ask them about astrologers in your local area.
I've really only scratched the surface here, so if you want to delve further into this mystical art and get more accurate insight into your personal birth chart, contact a professional astrologer. Astrology isn't a magical crystal ball that will tell you exactly when you're going to land your dream job or meet your soul mate, but it can give you an idea of when you may be more likely to.
