What is Psychological Astrology?

Definition

Psychological Astrology is a study of astrology focusing on psychological dynamics as represented by the chart archetypes which are universally repeating patterns. The individual’s birth chart is considered a symbolic representation of a person’s psyche as well as their potential for creative manifestation in life.

From an astrological chart, you can understand an individual’s personality and psychological make-up; you can understand their core needs, desires, and deep seated fears, as well as their natural talents and limitations. You can see life lessons embedded in the chart; there are different energies and challenges which, when integrated, allow the person to function in a healthy manner, from their source, and at their highest potential.

Assumptions & Biases


  • We live in an intentional and enchanted universe in which everything is conspiring to awaken our divine consciousness.

  • We may refuse the call to awaken. We may be victims or perpetrators. We are born with the demand to learn and experience. We do not consciously choose what occurs all of the time, however we definitely choose how we respond to our various opportunities, catastrophies, and calls to our heart.

  • The astrological chart is a precise map of archetypal correlations which, when lived fully, connect us to ourselves, our loved ones, and the community of all things.

  • Studying the mandala of the natal chart leads to the blossoming of a spiritual and compassionate perspective of human kind.
