One of the most well known medical doctors in the USA, Dr. Christiane Northrup, recently posted a comment regarding her strong belief in astrology:
When someone asks me why astrology plays such an important role in my life, I know they don’t see astrology the way I do. Astrology connects us to the universe—to the whole. It helps us make meaning out of seemingly meaningless events, especially the ones that test our resolve. It imbues the universe with the magic that our souls crave.
Maybe it has something to do with my being an OB/GYN. The phrase “moon time” was used for eons as a euphemism for menstruation. Of course, once-upon-a-time women lived together in clans, and so forth, and their menstrual cycles were synchronized with both each other and the moon. And any Labor & Delivery ward will confirm that more babies are born during a full moon than any other time of the month.
So when someone questions my belief in astrology, I reply with some questions of my own: “Do you believe in the phases of the moon? Do you believe in the seasons?” And then I add, “Because astrology is about aligning with the forces that rule the moon, the tides, and the turning of the planets, and then finding your unique place within this system based on how the planets were lined up at the moment of your birth.”
