Astrological Happenings: Week of May 15th, 2017

It’s been wild long since I wrote about Astrology and I started thinking that since I have become a serious practitioner and student of it that I need to integrate it more into my posts here at The Illy Vish Files. That being said, I decided that every week I will compile the best sources for understanding the astrological happenings occurring and post links to them here. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran in understanding astrological concepts or a noob, I wanted to make an understandable weekly guide to finding out what the stars have in store for you.


It is important to understand that Astrology is built upon the premise “As above, so below” and as such, taking into account what is going on in the sky above helps us deal with what is going on down here on Earth below. I encourage any of you reading to become familiar with you natal or birth chart. I wrote a post awhile back about my own natal chart and understanding the basic parts of yours. To read it, click here. Since we all have natal charts that are unique and specific to our moment of birth, I stress the importance of being familiar with yours so that may understand how the current astrological happenings are affecting you directly. Unfortunately, horoscopes in newspapers and magazines only take into account your sun sign and assume it’s in your First House. If that sounded like gibberish to you, my apologies. But basically, typical horoscopes are incomplete and way too general.

That’s why even Homer Simpson doesn’t take them seriously.
