Astrology, Doctor? Are You Kidding?

by Christiane Northrup, M.D.

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.”

Now let me give you a few “rules” when it comes to astrology:

  1. Astrology is simply a tool—it has no power other than what you give it. It’s like checking the weather forecast to see if you should pack a raincoat.
  2. Astrology gives you a roadmap for the journey of your soul. It’s designed to help you maximize access to your soul’s original blueprint. From time to time, I will look at someone’s chart with them. Invariably, the first thing he or she asks is, “Is it bad?” There aren’t any “bad” charts. Every chart has its challenges and its gifts.
  3. Similarly, as astrologer Tosha Silver teaches, there are no “bad” transits if you know how to align with the Divine. No one is a victim of their astrologic chart—though it’s true that some aspects will test your soul’s resolve more than others. For example, wherever Saturn is going through your chart (a transit), it’s likely that that particular area of your life is undergoing a bit of “breakdown to breakthrough.” (The degree of orbiting Saturn in the sky coincides with a particular portion of your own natal chart—the position of the planets at the time of your birth. And each of these positions is associated with a different area of life, such as home and roots, partnerships, career, etc.)
  4. Sun Sign astrology, such as one sees in newspapers and magazines, is nothing more than an interesting parlor game. This form of astrology was started at the turn of the 20th century to sell more newspapers. But the sun sign is just one aspect of your individual astrologic signature. And it won’t give you much information unless you also know your rising sign, moon sign, and the positions of your personal planets, including Venus, Mars, and Mercury.
  5. When looking for a trustworthy person to work with or follow, avoid “doom and gloom” astrologers. These are the astrologers who call planets like Saturn “malefic”—as if a planet could reach down and make your life a living hell.

In May, I signed a contract to write a new book. Underneath my signature, I wrote, “New moon in Taurus, solar eclipse. ” New moons signify new beginnings, and when a new moon occurs with a solar eclipse, it’s a new moon on steroids! I loved the idea of marrying the energy of this particular new moon with the uber left-hemisphere legal contract, which I’d been negotiating for months. The fact that everything came together on this new moon felt highly significant to me—like the culmination of forces much bigger than my own rational intellect.

And that’s the whole point of astrology. Understanding that there are universal forces that act on us that are far greater than we know, and far greater than we can control, but with which we can work consciously for maximum effectiveness and fulfillment.

    From what I can tell from these posts and Tosha Silvers’ websites, she uses Vedic Astrology, which is an older and reliable system of astrology, based on the constellations in the sky at the time of our actual birth rather than on the time of our birth if we were born 2000 years ago. It is a Sidereal, progressed system that actually works. Thank you for promoting this system as so many people still try to use Western Astrology/Sun Sign and then wonder their readings are inaccurate or they project the misinformation (the scourge of our time) onto their lives and are even more confused. I applaud your continued wise work. Thanks.

    I was so elated to hear you mention being a Pisces Moon in one of your videos lol ♥ I have a Pisces Ascendant but I am a Libra Sun sign, and I wanted to share that amazingly my weakest point has been my kidneys and I was hospitalized for emergency infections when I was a child. Of course I have had other issues as the body’s health or disorder is generally systemic, but I haven’t been hospitalized like that for anything else. Also an anxiety issue has ruled me so while learning about the body from Dr. Robert Morse, it dawned on me there is a connection with the adrenal glands which control the fight or flight fright mechanism being on top of the kidneys. Five years later at 14 I was so unwell I was put on antidepressants, which messed me up so much more and I battled to get off of them for a decade while drinking alcohol cuz apparently the pills make you crave it and it’s the only thing that temporarily took the anxiety away.

    Well anyways, if I’ve had to be sick to learn how to be well as so many others have then I guess I wouldn’t trade it, but I am sick of it lol. Thank you for the wonderful, inspiring, enlightening and informative videos, you are one of my new favorite people and I’m so glad to scour the rest of your speaking available online ♥

    I am actually encouraged by you admitting that you utilize astrology in your life. Others do as well and because they don’t want to face criticism from others who have little understanding of astrology, some would be less forthcoming than you. Your explanation along with examples of the moon phases and seasons is a concept I can use with friends who somehow believe astrology is sacrilegious. To take care of my health and to continue being ageless; I am using every tool available. Thank you for your contribution to my good health.

    Since every sign in astrology “rules” a different part of the body, I think doctors would be doing their diagnosis’ a favor by getting familiar with this fact. Aries rules the head; Taurus, the throat; Gemini, the shoulders, arms, hands and nervous system; Cancer. the stomach; Leo the heart and spine; Virgo, digestive system; Libra, the kidneys; Scorpio, the genitals; Sagittarius, the hips and thighs; Capricorn, the knees and skin; Aquarius, the ankles; and Pisces, the feet. There you have it Docs! Use this in your practices however you see fit!

    There are many ways to augment our intuition. In addition to astrology, I have found working with the wisdom of Tarot cards and I Ching (and other oracles) to be profound, not as a silly fortune telling tool, but as a means of expressing archetypal symbolism and synchronicity (Jung’s meaningful coincidences). The history of these intuitive divinations is fascinating, and the art history associated with them is amazing. They are often completely misunderstood. Thanks for opening up this topic!

    I have read every comment here and am so excited to learn more about Astrology. I have an advance beginner’s knowledge of Astrology and a strong intuitive sense of the art of it. Thanks, Dr. Northrup very very much for opening up this discussion. As you probably know, Carl Jung (a revolutionairy psychiatrist) used Astrology to help his patients and gain insights into their difficulties – I believe Paracelsus (correct me if I am wrong) also used Astrology for his patients.

    Dr. Northrup, I love your site! I first heard you during the HH Summit, ordered your book for young girls and now follow you here. I’ve always loved astrology and within the last year had my natal chart done. Thanks for giving the shamanicastrology.com address. I’m going to get the book. I’m a 57-year-old widow and can do as I please – astrology is fascinating and I really don’t care who believes in it or not. Their loss if they refuse to accept it.

    I read my horoscope daily and find that whatever I am going through in my life at that time, that day’s reading does correspond to what I am feeling on that day. I can’t say how may times I have felt down or depressed due to the current situation in my life and after reading a particular day’s reading, I become uplifted because the reading indicated that I am where I am supposed to be in my life at that moment and better times are ahead.

  12. Such wonderful company I am in. Thank you!. I daily look at my horoscope, generally after the day has started already and I can go “Aha!” Any help with our individual alignment to the powers that be: God, the Universe, call it what you will, but be awed!
    I hesitate sharing my”astrology aide” with anyone. It is so nice when one discovers one does not HAVE TO share anything, that one has CHOICES and that excusing and explaining puts one “Below the Line of Choice”, makes one a victim.

    Clearly I’m in some REALLY good company concerning astrology. LOVE reading these comments. And for those who asked where GOD is in this, here is my response. GOD– the CREATOR– created ALL OF IT!!! There’ a quote on the science building up at nearby Bowdoin College–” Scientific principles are the thoughts of God.” Or something like that. Astrologic knowledge also reflects the genius of our Creator. Thank you all for weighing in here!!!

    I was interested in astrology as a teenager, and didn’t pay much attention after that. Just recently, I joined The Astrology Salon and I am learning how to interpret charts. I am learning so much about myself and other people—it is mind blowing! Also, I never hide my interest in astrology. Although a lot of people say they don’t believe in it, I find that most people want to know what’s in their charts.

    Many of you wanted to know where to start with astrology. I am a very big fan of the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School. http://www.shamanicastrology.com They publish a great book. You can also book a reading with someone trained in the system. For those of you who posted comments who are astrologers, feel free to post your contact info here in the comment section. Thanks everyone for such GREAT comments.

    I use astrology as a tool and a guide. My natal chart shows me my strengths and weakness. The transits activate certain areas and challenges of my life. The north node confirmed that I was on the right path. I don’t look at my chart everyday, yet enough to be in flow with the universe.

    being the cause of human miseries, Revolutionary Astrology
    teaches they are here (there) to serve us and work with us in
    our evolution…
    They represent a portion of our guides, teachers, and elders
    whom we “consulted with” before incarnating

    I find astrology fascinating and sincerely believe that it is about aligning with the powers of the universe that rule the moon, the tides, and the moving of the planets..

    I would be so grateful if you would suggest a good sort of “dummies guide” for me to begin my journey into understanding and learning a solid foundation in order to grow my knowledge.

    I very much appreciate any input you could offer to me.

    Hi Dr. Northrup,
    As a “moon child” I’ve always found it challenging to fit into the world. So much of being at peace is deep acceptance of who we are to our very core…without shame. As you said, there are so many factors that contribute to who we are. Therapy was our first attempt to understand the human psyche but really so limited.

    Thank you for writing about astrology with insight and awareness.

    I use astrology in my life everyday in every way. I am a realtor and always time my listings and showings by the stars and planets. I don’t always tell colleagues and clients – after all this is The Real Estate – earthbound and pragmatic.

    Some people, however, know me only as an astrologer. I write newsletters and have a blog.

    Again, thank you, thank you for your thoughtful comments – self understanding is empowerment.

    So happy to read your comments about astrology. I find it an invaluable tool on the journey of self-discovery and exploration of patterns and cycles in life. We have lost a willingness to honour the inherent mystery in life, and ridicule that which is not understood or deemed impossible. But I am more interested in using astrology as a useful tool in pursuit of deeper understanding, than trying to convince anyone else of its veracity.

    I’m new at all of this and I’m very interested. Can you please tell a beginner how to start.

  29. I am very curious about all of this and would like to learn more, but yes the stigma and judgment for mostly my ” Christian ” “friends” means keeping it on the down low. Though you work is highly respected it is interesting how they ignore the parts they don’t agree with and judge us that pay attention as ” sinners”

    Absolutely agree with your description “astrology is like checking the weather to see if you should pack a raincoat”.
    I use astrology to take advantage of opportunities (especially those that aren’t so obvious) and in more challenging times its such a great tool for seeing meaning in difficult circumstances. And for knowing how best to deal with them, to add my evolution.
    I think its a far more powerful and accurate self-development tool than psychology.

    I have always had an interest in Astrology & wondered if some of my sleep patterns were related to the planets and mood to the solar flares, but what opened my world was when I went to a Naturopath (because I no Longer wanted to be poisoned by Pharmaceuticals) and he asked my Birth Date and time. It ROCKED MY WORLD!

    I use astrology as a guide in my life to help give me insight into the prevailing energies which I can then use to maximize on “Life’s experiences”. I share my love of astrology to those I feel are receptive but mostly I study with an ever deepening appreciation for my own education, for myself and for those I work with. Thank you for this recognition. The more I study, the more helpful and useful I find astrology.

    Dr Northrup,

    I have loved reading your Wisdom of Menopause and this article. I have been following Astrology in my life since January 2012 when my daughter and I had our natal charts done. Since then, I have incorporated it into my work as a massage therapist encouraging both my colleagues and clients to become more aware of these factors in their own lives. While still a new avenue for me, it feels very right 🙂

    I find astrology fascinating and have always had an interest in it. I use it as a guide and as a tool for a deeper understanding of myself and others. Also, it touches something deep within me and puts a little “magic” in my life. I don’t mention my interest in astrology to others unless they bring it up.

    Following my previous comment, yes I keep my astrology tendencies far far away from all my colleagues! Western science tends heavily to dismiss what it doesn’t yet understand or isn’t yet able to measure. Like subtle energies of the body such as the chakras! Thanks so much for opening the door of conversation on this.

  37. Lesley Horton MD

    Great topic- thanks for bringing it up! I am a medical physicianwho was always very skeptical about astrology. Then trusting a mentor, I consulted an astrologist and it blew my mind how accurate she was. I had to accept that my paradigm that followed Western science was too small and needed to expand. it’s become a wonderful tool! I tell patients about astrology when I sense it will help them make sense of their life purpose or a very difficult time.

    Working at an institution of higher education, I most definitely try to keep it hidden. A couple of times, I’ve let a comment slip, such as: “I’ll get back to you after Mercury goes direct” or “you’ll have to forgive me, I have an Aries Moon” have been met with blank stares or laughs. Yes, I’ll use my birth chart road map, but not let my colleagues know. Thank you stating this so concisely and elegantly. I may have to use parts of it next time I let something slip.

    Thank you! I use astrology daily with clients in sessions of Tensegrity –a practice of well-being. I often go straight for the moon’s nodes to see qualities the person’s soul is here to develop. I’m starting to notice patterns in certain time periods, for example in 1958, the moon’s north node was conjunct Neptune–indicating one is here to share intuitive gifts, and help others trust their own. Think Doreen Virtue, or clairaudient healer and author David Elliott. Viva!!!

An astrology obsession is the best midlife crisis! I use astrology to help me understand life’s difficulties – great for self-development. Still in the closet about it, but working on that. I’m considering “outing myself” by going back to school to be a therapist and using astrology in my practice.

    I have known astrology for thirty years privately because in the business and academic world it is a joke. Yet, I agree that the moon has an obvious energy release yet there are other undiscovered energies which affect our lives, bodies, moods, etc. The fact that stress causes inflation in the body, and even heart arrhythmias is mysterious. I agree that astrology helps give meaning to the search for self and why you are attracted or repelled by the energies of others.

    Thank you for your positive words on the art of astrology which I have been practicing as a professional for over 20 years. I read once that Astrology clarifies our place in the universe, and it reminds and connects us with an order that is much greater than our own personal understanding. Astrology can help us transform and shift into greater awareness. At the start of each call I remind them that astrology is simply “the language that catalyzes the memory of your mission here.”

    Every time Mercury goes into retrograde, the 24 hrs prior to that my life is turned upside down. I try and keep my comments to a minimal and not get into any heavy conversations. At this point I don’t read my horoscope daily, but if I notice an off day early enough I check it and judge my reactions for the rest of the day. I don’t hide it from colleagues, but it’s certainly not something I bring up in casual conversation. – Thank you!

    Thank you Dr. Northrup for being a successful, grounded person who endorses astrology. I have studied astrology for over 25 years now; I have found it to be a practical, useful tool for everyday living. It has been maligned over the years through unstable people, but anyone who really knows the art, really understands the wisdom behind it.

    It has been imperative to help me understand my gifts and challenges, as well as those of my children!

    Seasons and moon phases are NOT belief systems. Their impact on organisms is fact and verifiable through scientific observation. Alignment of distant stars as they may appear from random vantage points on earth acting as “a roadmap for the journey of your soul” IS a belief system. It is a false analogy to claim that the two are similar. To say that consulting astrology is akin to checking the weather for the need of a raincoat is ridiculous and undermines your professional status as a physician.

    I’ve been using my knowledge of astrology to manage my relationships with people for years. While it’s not the only factor I use when figuring out how to relate to someone, it definitely plays a large part. It is also helpful in understanding children who are not always adept at recognizing and stating their emotional needs. I wish more doctors and other professionals would incorporate astrology in what they do; I think we’d all be a lot better off!

    I’m a fan of Western astrology. The language of astrology is unlike any other, explaining the inexplicable in ways that are empowering. In a world that worships rational thinking, it provides the great healing power of enchantment. I’ve watched it play out in my business life in ways that never fail to amaze me. I am careful never to promote my interest at work but occasionally it comes up and sparks a deeper conversation. By the way, I’m a Libra with a Scorpio ascendant and a Capricorn moon.

Thank you for sharing your personal experience and how you use these tools.

    Astrology became important in my life when I was in my early 20s ( I ‘m now in my late 40s). I experienced a profound psychic awakening at that time. Studying my own chart, I have come to understand myself better. The planets are always in moving. This knowledge helps me to go within for the answer . This journey can be scary and exciting. Astrology teaches all of us that change is constant.

    When I first started learning astrology, about 35 years ago, I was so enthusiastic about it that I wanted to share everything with everyone. But, truly, the language and the way the system changes your perception of the world, isn’t for everyone, so I communicate with my astrology peers nearly all the time. It is an amazing, amazing tool for growth and insight, but, you need to have a curious, open mind and a broad perspective to allow it to enter your consciousness.

    Thank you Dr. Northrup for relaying how important astrology is to you. It is a beautiful thing to hear that someone so grounded and accomplished realizes the important tool that astrology is. I have studied astrology since I was 15, many moons ago, and was always impressed by the guidance that it provides. Astrology has been a spiritual, practical gift to me, and it has helped me realize not only the talents and challenges that I have, but also those of my children.

    So- how do YOU use astrology in your life? And if you do, do you keep it hidden from your colleagues? I’m really curious. Post a comment here!!

    JP Morgan said “millionaires do not follow astrology but billionaires do” – some people will not understand some things – like some do not understand quantum physics however it has no impact on it existing and being a governing force. Dr Northrop is brilliant and I admire her speaking to the wisdom found in astrology. It is further demonstration of her pioneering spirit and her connection to truth and wisdom and her being authentic is communicating what is truth.

    I listened to your conversation on Hay House World Summit with Dr. Boborysenko. I have to say that was the best hour I have spent. I learned more than in my entire adulthood. I am going to get your book now. Have Intuitive Listening. Just want you to know what a profound effect that conversation had with this 65 years old twice divorced woman who was drying up and bitter. Thank you for a new lease on life. With deepest appreciation, Marlene Herself
