Esoteric Astrology is sometimes called Soul based Astrology, and can be described as the study of Universal Principles. It draws on the teachings of Ancient Wisdom - passed down from age to age, and culture to culture. Throughout its development, it has embraced the disciplines of many traditions, and through this, it can offer a comprehensive and inclusive system to help us to better understand ourselves and each other.
One of the most well known tenets is "As above, so below" - teaching us of the correspondences within our Universe. Through the symbolism of Astrology, the stories of the stars and planets are reflected in our own lives. Esoteric and mystical lore tells of the Law of reincarnation, that the soul incarnates upon this earth many times, each life offering new lessons and presenting new opportunities for heightened growth, insight and awareness. It is here that we see the outworking of cause and effect - that which is known as the Law of Karma. By using the tools of Astrology, we are able to come to a deeper understanding of our place in the Universe, our own unique perspective of the great drama of life which, from moment to moment, is unfolding both above and within us.
