Believe it or not, despite it's reputation (from people who don't know enough about it) astrology is a good tool if you need direction in life or have perhaps questions about your predispositions. Not until I saw a reputable astrologer many years ago did I understand just how much spiritual inquiry is part of my inner make-up. It made all the difference in deciding to go back to school for a master's degree and how to direct my studies.
With great interest I read multi-talented Eric Francis' monthly column and horoscope section. Originally an investigative journalist, he is the astrologer for several magazines, and the founder of Planet Waves. His pieces on the correlation between current events and astrology are most interesting and enlightening.
More recently, I needed to help my daughter with her college search. From her activities I had gotten two different messages about potential study areas and was confused on how to direct her - this way or that way. Astrology to the rescue, the answer was clear, extremely helpful, and totally pertinent.
You'd be amazed at how relevant and invaluable astrology can be if you feel stuck or have major life questions or challenges - no woo-woo, just clarity.
