How Does This Relate To Spirituality And Awakening?

“Astrology is a Language. If you understand this language, The Sky Speaks to You.”—Dane Rudhyar

Spirituality is a journey to remembering that you are not just a body but spirit as well. Until we built the ultimate trust in the universe and ourselves, it is inevitable that we will rely on outside signs to guide us. Until we realize that all the answers that we have and ever had and will ever have lie inside of us, we will look to the outside for them.

Our universe is a gentle universe, if you believe it. It wants you to awake to who you really are ( not just a pile of bones and flesh) but it will guide you into a gentle awakening process if you allow it. If you are guided to the rising sign and want to explore more to help you navigate through the seeming different paths of life, you should trust your instinct and let it guide you.

When you are ready to progress, the need to look into outside symbols with disappear naturally. You will just lose interest into them. Until then, go ahead, use whatever symbols and signs are necessary to further your trust in the universe and the process.

You can also do this for entertainment. Find out what rising star you are and reading the applicable description just to see if it’s accurate. It could be a fun thing to do with your significant other, friends, or family. This might be an idea for an entertaining night.

Whatever the reasons you high have to want to find out which rising signs you are, it will not hurt, so go ahead and have fun.

I would love to hear from you. Please share your thoughts on the rising sign and whether they should have a place in our lives.
