What is Evolutionary Astrology

In the intricate and ever-evolving world of astrology, the emergence of Evolutionary Astrology offers a growth-oriented and soul-centered perspective to natal chart analysis and forecasting.


Introduction to the Astrological meanings of Eris, Haumea, and Makemake


With the publication of this article, June Solstice 2016 – Dwarf Planets Ceres and Eris are conjunct at 23 Aries, next to Uranus, and opposing Haumea at 22 Libra. Perhaps, this an opportune time to further discuss the presence of these mysterious bodies and stimulate interest for further research.

An important Note:
With most of the Dwarf Planets and contenders being only recently discovered (Haumea, Eris, Sedna and Makemake in 2003 – 2005), and given their extreme distance and slow motion around the Sun (with Eris taking more than 560 years to complete a full cycle around the zodiac), a lot more time is required to research and validate their astrological significance and influence. We can rely on the myth stories related to their names as an initial point of reference, but we should be careful asserting decisive definitions when so much remains to be revealed. We hope however, that you will feel inspired to place them in your charts and spend time researching them.They certainly emerged into our consciousness at the dawn of this new millennia for important evolutionary reasons.


Identifying the Soul Age

For Chart Analysis

A recurrent question raised by both astrology practitioners and skeptics is how can it be that individuals born with the same chart (born within few minutes of each other), whether biological twins or astrology twins, will not necessarily lead the same lives.


An Astrological Civilization

Thanks to the current proliferation of blogs and vlogs that magnetize hundreds of thousands of dedicated followers, we are now witnessing astrology’s explosion into mainstream media and culture. As the appeal for traditional religious institutions diminishes, astrology and other spiritually oriented practices become both an alternative and a refuge.

The Argument:
People born at the same time and place, whether biological twins, or astrological twins, would be the only ones to share the same chart, at least very closely so. The question asked is whether they should share the same personality traits and life course.

The answer to this argument is not straightforward, but more ambiguous and layered.

From limited observation, I have observed some interesting patterns. It appears that individuals born with the same chart – a phenomenon that can only occur if they are born the exact place and time – will share many similar tendencies and parallel life circumstances. We do hear about related stories, such as the twin sisters who both gave birth on the same day in 2012:


The Evolution of Consciousness Through Reincarnation.

A preview on reincarnation themes in the birth chart


Analyzing an astrology chart from the perspective of the evolution of consciousness, I perceive a chart as a link in a greater chain of events. Considering that upon birth a baby is not a blank slate, but rather already charged with a particular character, desires, and fears, it becomes evident that these traits are not the fruit of parental imprinting from the current time and space; a newborn baby has a history. Each individual comes into this world with a completely different set of resources and potential; some say it is in the genes, others call it coincidence, but from my perspective the reason each person is unique and born into distinctively different circumstances is based on the current requirements of his or her soul’s evolution.
