The planet that represents the subconscious mind according to Astrology is Mercury. This decision was made early in history because of the symbolism found in Mercury’s mythology. For instance, Hermes, the god Mercury, patrols between heaven and earth, delivering messages between humans and deities. It only makes sense that this planet would be associated with our deeply rooted thoughts which are often difficult to access or change.
While many people have different ideas about what astrology is, at its core, it involves drawing from celestial events to learn more about ourselves and our place in the world. Understanding why Mercury is linked to the subconscious mind may help to know a bit about astrology’s history.
Astrology has been around since the beginning of man to understand our environment and its impact on each other. In fact, some anthropologists date its existence back to 30,000 BCE! This means that we’ve had millennia upon millennia for it to develop into what we know today. However, this makes pinning down exactly how far back astrology goes difficult because, much like language and culture itself, it evolved with the addition of new information.
Astrology has always been intertwined with other spiritual practices such as alchemy, numerology, and tarot readings. In fact, there are numerous examples of these practices being used together, including the use of astrology to determine when a person would have been buried to reanimate them for a tarot reading! We can see how important it is by looking at the development of this practice throughout history.
How can you use this information to understand yourself and your life path better?
Understanding how to work with your subconscious mind is a powerful tool and something well worth exploring if you feel like you’ve hit a wall in life. It can be challenging to decipher what our inner voice might be saying, but we all know it comes up with the most random thoughts at the weirdest times. For example, consider this: you’re driving down the street and thinking about what you want for lunch. At that moment, off to your left, just out of sight, someone gets injured in a car accident! Maybe this was just bad timing or your unconscious reminding you that there’s more going on in life than just what’s going on in your own head. How could you have prevented being so distracted from the world around you? By becoming more aware of how our subconscious works, we can achieve more excellent balance in life.
One way to work with the subconscious mind is Astro-emotional alchemy which combines astrology with emotional awareness. A practitioner of this type of medicine would work with both the conscious and subconscious to see what needs to change to live a happier, healthier life. For example, if the planet Saturn rules you, some feelings or behaviours may need to be dealt with before you can move forward in your life. In ancient times, the only way for us to look into our lives in such a profound way was through these practices.
One final thing we should mention is that each person has a different level of intuition. While it’s entirely normal for people’s abilities to differ, learning how you can tap into your inner voice will help you understand yourself more. For example, if you’re feeling overwhelmed by your current situation in life, astrology can help you understand why or what needs to change. Plus, it’s always good for you to take some time to slow down and get in touch with your inner voice rather than pushing away these feelings of distress, which can lead to anxiety or other forms of mental illness.
Are there any other planets that represent different aspects of the subconscious mind, and if so, what are they?
Yes! Although it’s not as common, planets like the Moon and Neptune are representative of the subconscious mind. The planet Neptune is exciting because its purpose was unknown for a long time. Astronomers found that it didn’t revolve around the sun like other planets do, which led them to believe that there must be something different about it! It wasn’t until they discovered Uranus’ moon Trinculo, that people realised another planet influenced Neptune’s orbit. This information helped open up new possibilities for understanding how our minds work!
For many people, Saturn tends to represent structure which can be helpful in some cases, but not always. For example, someone with ADHD may feel like they need that structure to function correctly. Others may find that this rigidness gets in the way of creative impulses! If you’re someone who Neptune rules, on the other hand , it might be easier for you to let go of these structured behaviours and live a more carefree life! One helpful way to look at this is to think of your conscious self as being ruled by Saturn while Neptune rules your subconscious mind.
How can astrology help us understand ourselves better?
As we mentioned earlier, each person is different, so there isn’t one specific way of understanding yourself. Instead, think about what makes sense to you personally. For example, do you identify closely with your zodiac sign? Do you only want to know how the planets relate to your personality ?”
What are some tips for working with the subconscious mind to achieve your goals and live a happier life?
First things first, you should always talk to a trusted friend or family member about what’s going on in your life. You never know when you might need someone else’s help, so it’s always good to have an emotional support system! In addition to this, it can be helpful to journal as another way of processing those deep emotions. This will allow you to go back and look at what was happening before, which may give you clues as to why certain things happened. After that, it may be a good idea for you to start looking into Astro-emotional alchemy to work with yourself further! This is a great way to tap into your subconscious mind to make stronger, healthier connections with yourself and your environment.
"Can you change or control the planets in astrology, or do our birth charts predetermine them?"
The planets do not influence us because of where we were born in this universe. Instead, they represent different parts of ourselves that then control us! It’s beneficial for everyone to take some time to work with their Astro-emotional alchemist system so that you can better understand how these energies relate to you. It’ll help you gain greater insight into who you are, which is never a bad thing! Feel free to check out Astrostyle if you’d like to learn more about astrology.
Of course, it’s up to you whether or not the planets influence your life, and you should never forget that everyone is different! With this in mind, we hope that these tips for working with the subconscious mind will set some people on a path towards more excellent health and happiness!
