I think of astrology as a language.
Astrology is a direct and divine language of the Gods — how the cosmos speak to humans and vice versa.
I’m an translator (interpreter), and teacher of this symbolic language.
I’m more arts, than science focused.
While astrology is a language, the charts erected contain many volumes of books with astrological chapters, paragraphs, sentences, and words.
It can take years, or months to read a whole chart — minutes, and seconds to read part of it.
Natal astrology describes the native, and the potential opportunities and challenges they shall face, face, and have faced.
The natal and progressed chart is your operating and repair manual. Every machine enjoys maximum success with one.
The solar return (and other predictive charts) and transits, are your windows of opportunity. They also provide challenges to help you grow and explore the magic of your life, and living.
Synastry (and composite) charts describe the chemistry between two or more people, and the reason for the relationship, as well as the potential opportunities and challenges they shall face, face, and have faced.
Just like the natal and progressed charts — synastry and composite charts, are operating and repair manuals focused on your relationships. Along with a counseling astrologer, skilled in reading charts and therapeutic dialogue, you may enjoy a much faster and clearer repair of your relationship.

Learning Predictive Astrology: Abella’s Tips
One of the best ways to become more accurate in your astrological predictions, is to pour through past personal charts (solar returns, progressions, transits) of yourself and people you’re close to as well as read the biographical events of celebrities that interest you.
When reading biographies select material that often highlights dates and locations. And for yourself and personal relationships, seek out diaries, journals, documents, and other recordings of events. This would be a good time to reinforce that keeping a diary, as an astrologer, is quite important to your own personal development as well updating and challenging your general astrological understanding.
We can see how the symbiosis between the cosmos and yourself manifested the very personal and specific events that happened.
Astrologers base much of their interpretative work on observation over time (if not their own, others); however, the specific details may be off because while the chances of one thing happening are ‘high’, the native always has an element of freewill where they can direct the themes and rulerships of the planets in a different direction while retaining the essence of the lesson, opportunity, gift, test, or challenge.
As well, mundane celestial events alter the general character, culture, and well-being of the masses and that also has a direct effect on the outcome of personal predictions. So in-depth astrologers are looking a large number of charts to determine an outcome. One chart, just like one aspect, will not tell you the whole story when it comes to predictions.
Predictive fear (Saturn-Neptune) can be removed and replaced with manifestation plans (Saturn-Jupiter).
