stars_1230_600x450Many people used to believe that astrology only consisted of being affected by celestial bodies that are upon the universe. While this may be true to a certain extent, astrology goes on a much deeper level than that. There are actually three different levels to astrology, some of which directly impact our personal development.

The more commonly known level of astrology would be the first level which is known as automatic response. Within this level of astrology, people become aware of the fact that we are all impacted by the stars and the universe, in one way or another. You can think of this as a celestial dance. However, this dance is different than other dances as you do not have the option to not participate. Whether you want to or not, no matter how hard you try to avoid it, the dance will still take place and it will still have impacts on your life.

This is actually one of the ways in which the stars can impact our personal development. Some alignments of stars and certain positions of the moon and other planets may have positive effects when it comes to your personal development as you may be provided with strength, courage and other sources of inner power. On the other hand, certain alignments and positions may impact you negatively by causing you to feel tired, weak or discouraged. While there may be nothing you can do to stop these alignments, there are ways in which you can prepare for them.

The following are a few examples of what you can do to prepare for alignments that may have negative impacts on your personal development:

• Learn Your Sign And What Alignments To Prepare For
Perhaps the first step you should take to prepare yourself for certain alignments is to learn everything you can about your sign. Learn your strengths, weaknesses, positive alignments and most important of all, the negative ones. This will let you know when you need to be prepared for what some may consider being “down time”.

• Create A Plan
Once you are aware of alignments that may have negative impacts on your personal development, the best thing you can do is begin devising a plan that will help you through rough times. In this plan you should include things that will help to reverse any negative impacts you may be receiving from the universe. For example, if you know an alignment is coming up that may possibly leave you feeling sad or unmotivated, include fun things in your plan that will pep your spirit back up can get you back on track.

• Take Advantage Of The Highs To Prepare For The Lows
Just as there are alignments and star positions that may have negative impacts on people, there are also ones that provide positive impacts. As mentioned earlier, some star alignments provide people with strength and courage as well as many other important personality traits. Perhaps it would be a good idea for you to absorb as much positive energy as you possibly can during those times. This will provide you with an abundance of “highs” that will make it easier to strive through the “lows”.

The second level of astrology impacts personal development on an even higher level. The reason for this is the fact that this level of astrology requires people to take responsibility for their actions as well as understand how certain celestial beings influence their life. In this level, people become aware of patterns in behavior as well as natural law and actually begin to participate in creating good results or bad ones.

The second level allows us to begin to develop our own path of personal development. The heightened sense of awareness and true being that people can experience at this level provides them with unimaginable inner-strength and courage that can help them to overcome even the biggest of battles.

The third level of astrology focuses on the fact that the universe lives just as we do. It also focuses on the understanding that we all have a specific purpose in life. Our actions impact the universe and the universe impacts all of us. For this reason we should always make sure we are following a proper path of personal development so that we may provide the universe with nothing but good things.

Understanding how the stars can impact our lives on such a deep level can be a bit confusing in the beginning. In fact, there are many people who are completely unaware of how important astrology is in our lives.

You can either allow stars to affect your personal development in a positive way or you can cause them to affect it in a negative way. You might as well learn to roll with the punches, after all, there is nothing we can do to stop the celestial dance!
