Do you have special talents that come naturally to you? Do you ever wish you felt your life had a special purpose? Do you ever wonder, "Why am I here?" What is my life about?" "Why do I keep making the same mistakes in my life?" Do you crave fulfillment, inner peace, happiness, and a more meaningful life? If so, the answers can be found with spiritual astrology.

Spiritual Astrology

The astrological planets, signs, aspects, and houses capture the essence of your personality traits that manifest in your present lifetime. Spiritual astrology combines all of this with your life's purpose as viewed from the soul's perspective. Spiritual astrology allows you to understand and deal with your fears, use your strengths, and resolve deep-seated issues. It answers questions about your past life habits and traits, your soul purpose, and your life's direction. However, it's not from the view of ego or personal ambition, rather from your soul's need to heal the past and claim who you were meant to be. It can also explain soul mate connections, rewrite your life's story, and change the trajectory of your life.

Esoteric and Evolutionary Astrology

Esoteric and evolutionary astrology are the two main branches of spiritual astrology. Spiritual astrology is used to help you get in harmony with your higher purpose. It should be noted that spiritual astrology does not replace traditional astrology. It's a method of chart interpretation that's supplemental to the conventional astrological approach.

Beliefs and principles of spiritual astrology:

  • Multiple past lives and an eternal soul
  • Karma, both good and bad
  • Everyone incarnates with a unique blueprint and purpose for their life

Esoteric Astrology

During the early 20th century, esoteric astrology was developed by Theosophists such as Alan Leo and Alice Bailey. Esoteric astrology focuses on the soul, or one's higher purpose, and is more concerned with causes than effects. Esoteric astrology is useful for gaining spiritual knowledge and confronting the divine aspect of your existence. It shines a light on your soul's agenda and purpose for this incarnation.

Evolutionary Astrology

During the late 1980s and early 90s, evolutionary astrology was developed by Jeffrey Wolf Green. He combined elements of the theosophical movement, psychological astrology, and Indian philosophy with channeled material to create evolutionary astrology. Green placed emphasis on Pluto and the Lunar Nodes. Steven Forrest partnered with Green and went on to popularize and expand the practice of Evolutionary Astrology. Evolutionary astrology's purpose is to help people define their spiritual purpose in life as well as to teach them how to integrate their human personality with their unique soul mission.

Free Spiritual Astrology Reports

Free spiritual astrology reports online are few and far between and don't offer a great deal of depth. They actually differ very little from other computer-generated astrology reports.

  • Esoteric Science will give you a short reading. It uses your birth date, time, and location to determine the sign and house placements of the planets and provides brief definitions.
  • Astron is another site you can check out for free spiritual astrology reports. This site requires you to know or look up a little bit more than the others. You'll be asked to include your time zone as well as the latitude and longitude for the place of your birth.

You Get What You Pay For

Not that the free reports aren't legit, accurate, or unworthy of your attention, but they are computer-generated, superficial, and not personalized. Of course, the best way to understand what spiritual astrology is and what it can do for you is to experience it through a face-to-face consultation with an esoteric or evolutionary-style astrologer.
