The Astral Core, at ‘center’ is a way of seeing our whole potential represented by the horoscope, the seeding of individuality at birth, and what takes shape afterward in development. First, consider the condition of the Sun and Moon together in synthesis. Add to this interpretation how lines of tension modify the Sun and Moon and affect this baseline analysis. Then, consider constructs in the chart that stand apart. These elements will of course have something else to say. But overall, Astrology patterns tend to repeat, they echo the core statement made by the Sun and Moon. These patterns, taken in big GULPS of astrological synthesis, create a comprehensive fusion of the birth chart, which provides Self-Understanding within a holistic view of the lived experience.
