In astrosophy, the zodiac signs and the star constellations do not show types of people but the milestones of wholeness – how am I complete? How can I consciously live a full life? What do I have to pay attention to? What do I have to strengthen in myself? What kind of burdens (both mental and physical) should I get rid of?
The zodiac signs only show the work of our Ego. How our internal ego, or actually our soul thinks, comes from the messages of the star constellations. This is how we become whole :o).
The 12 houses and the 10 planets further refine these messages and draw us an energy map that gives us the opportunity to increase these creative energies to a maximum.
And what is the role of the axes?
There are two axes in astroscopes. One of them is the ascendant (ASC) and descendant (DSC) axis and the other one is the Imum Coeli (IC) and the Medium Coelli (MC).
The ASC-DSC axis – the ascendant (the rising point) is the symbol of the “Ego”, the descendant (the resting point) is the symbol of ”You”. The “Ego” shows the conscious me, how I see myself, while the “You” indicates the not fully conscious me or how the environment sees me or what I radiate to the environment unconsciously.
The IC-MC axis – the IC (the bottom of the sky) is the symbol of the past and the origin. It shows us where we are from, what or what kind of abilities we have brought with ourselves. The MC (the top of the sky) shows us where we are going, the kinds of tasks we have that are worth doing and the direction we are heading in.
