The cosmic connection between planets and astrology

It all started with curiosity, the curiosity of man to study the patterns of stars and celestial bodies. This led to the discovery of certain movements of planets and stars such as revolution, rotation and the appearance of comets. While at first, these phenomena were recorded as celestial events that happened in space, it was later seen that these events had effects on Earth as well.

FAQ’s: 


Q1. How do the different time zones impact Sun Signs? 


The time zone you’re located in does not have any significant impact on your Sun Sign, your Sun Sign is determined by the exact location you were in when you were born only. Astrology relies on the ecliptic, meaning the circular path that the Sun appears to follow over the course of a year. 


Q2. How does Mercury Retrograde cause an effect on Earth, when it is merely an illusion?


In definition, Retrograde, is an optical illusion that causes a planet to slow down and eventually come to halt. During this phenomenon, the traits and themes related to the planet are felt in a perturbed way, thus bringing on adversity for particular zodiac signs. The answer to this question is fairly simple. In Astrology, planets are not seen as literal forces that control our feelings and emotions, it’s more of a symbolic relationship that exists between the planets and astrology, so in Retrograde, its symbolic of how the planets move backwards and stand still which causes an effect in our lives as well.


Q3. What is the easiest way to memorize the planets?
