Don’t we just love the feeling of laying down under the sky and stargazing? Yes, we do. It is the only time when we get the chance to forget all the burdens in our lives and lose ourselves in this deep dark ocean of the sky filled with stars, looking like fireflies taking us to a dream place.
And there is no doubt that the moon is the only childhood company that hasn’t stopped being around us who sits with us and listens to all our thoughts, secrets, and our dreams patiently without being judgemental.
But what if there is a reason behind all this, of why we get pulled into the sky. What if the stars and the planets are guiding us. Where we can control and predict our fate. This is when astrology comes into the picture.
Before getting to know how to be an astrologer. Let’s look into what astrology is. Which will help you decide if you want to learn astrology as a hobby or fun and move from a serious hobbyist to a professional astrologer or not.

Astrology is the study of the movement and the positioning of the moon, sun, planets, and stars in the belief that it affects the personality and lives of a person. Astrology is said to be a calculated study of planetary movements and constellations. Noticing the patterns that had occurred hundreds of years ago.
The stars and planets are the markers of time that show us what cycle we are in when a person is born(This is one way to travel back in time). As we grow older we feel we have lesser time and to save up time we find patterns in our life. And in astrology, it is said that finding patterns of what had happened in past through the planet’s location, helps people predict present and future events.
