Something clicks with astrology, when the basic structures and pieces in play, are grasped.
These bones of the study are signs, planets, houses and aspects. And each breaks down into knowable forms from there.
For the twelve Zodiac signs, for example, there are further categories of elements and qualities. The seeker then can observe how cardinal air Libra is experienced differently as say, fixed air Aquarius. Real life is where we see these astrological patterns, with their infinitely unique combinations.
It's the season of getting to the core basics, the bones and what can be built out from there with confidence. It's the time of the solar descent -- a time of shedding skins (and flimsy outer garb) and getting to the heart of the matter. In strengthening the astrological constitution, we find there's something timeless and true, and also open to interpretation.
