Instead of discussing what the planets do to us, we can explain ourselves based on planetary indications.
The signs work the same way: Each of the 12 signs is a unique combination of one of the four Elements -- Earth, Air, Fire, Water -- and one of the three Qualities -- Cardinal, Fixed, Mutable.
In fact, most religions incorporate some idea linking the way you live your life to where you end up in the afterlife.
Astrology ties humans together: We are all faced with the same planetary interactions, and we are all part of the same cycles.
Despite all these connections, astrology does not tie you to being a certain way, and it doesn't predict everything about you. What you can learn from it can help you make a choice between free will and destiny.
The Elements and Qualities demonstrate that we are all part of the environment.
There is a connection between all living things and all matter on this planet.
