Astrology: do you know the hidden side of your sign?

Astrology… Whether we believe in it or not, it is difficult to prevent ourselves from consulting our horoscope when the opportunity arises. Especially since in recent years, the discipline has probably been on the rise.

Astrology is very very oldexplain to us Sophie Hérolt-Petitpas, astrologer. The first traces of its practice date back to at least 3000 BC, around the same time as the invention of writing. But the one we use today is rather inspired by the Greeks.”

For the specialist, this tool, long confined to its pseudo function “divination”, would above all be a precious means to get to know each other better.

“There has been a recent rapprochement between psychology and astrology, and it has now become a tool of self-knowledge, even in a sense of personal development”, continues Sophie Hérolt-Petitpas. “On a daily basis, for example, I do “astro journaling”, that is to say, I will look at what is in the sky like transits, the lunar cycles, and other things, in order to see how my birth chartwhich is fixed, will be affected”, illustrates the astrologer.

Astrology: why we don’t always recognize ourselves in our sign

And to make good use of the teachings of the stars, one must first establish one’s horoscope. It lists the position of each star when we were born, and can give us precious clues about our personality, our expectations and our blockages, in great detail. Because no, in terms of astrology, there is not only the “sun” sign! Moreover, according to Sophie Herolt-Petitpas, the ignorance of our chart of the sky can explain why some do not “recognize” themselves in their sign.

The astrological sign is just the sign in which the sun was at the time of our birth, it is very limited. As a result, it can be very distorted: when you go up your chart, you will for example realize that you are Aries, but that you have five planets in Virgo. So you’re more in Virgo energy, actually. There is a lot of information in a theme, and sometimes, conflicting information. It is therefore necessary to know how to analyze them. – Sophie Hérolt-Petitpas, astrologer

It is in this sense that Sophie Hérolt-Petitpas has developed her latest book, AstroCoach (published on September 29 by Webedia Books), in which she gives the keys to decipher your own theme“without going into the technicality of astrological calculations, which are sometimes off-putting”, she specifies.

“The idea was to start with themes, to give practical information to readers, to enable them to decipher their theme according to several themes; creativity, family memory, love, vocation…”, states the specialist.

And to break up the most common clichés around astrology, we asked the astrologer to list the qualities, faults or “hidden” personality traits of each sign. “Each sign has a share of shadow and light, and some signs have a bad reputationsometimes wrongly… But others hide their game well!” says Sophie Hérolt-Petitpas.
