Symbology is the study of signs and symbols. This can range from the common signs we see every day. Such as road signs, to the more esoteric signs, such as the meaning of two magpies.
Intuitive symbology relates to the latter. The universe is constantly sending us signs; yet, more often than not, we don’t tend to notice, unless they are really obvious. This can happen when we start to see the same thing repeatedly in a short period of time. If you see a cat on your way to work, you may not think this is significant – cats are everywhere, right? But, if you see another cat as you walk into your office building and you’re then greeted by another when you return home, then you may start to question whether this has some sort of meaning.

When most people hear the word ‘astrology’, they think about their daily horoscopes, in the newspaper; however, there is much more to astrology than this. The horoscopes that you read in your newspaper are generic horoscopes, based on transits and trends for your sun sign, which is the sign the sun was in when you were born. This is why, sometimes, these horoscopes don’t reflect what is going on for you as an individual as they apply to all people of the same sun sign.
If you want to get a more in-depth and accurate astrology forecast, it is worth finding out what sign your ascendant was in when you were born. This is more commonly known as your ‘Rising Sign’. This is the sign that was rising as you were born. A lot of astrologers believe that the rising sign, gives a more accurate forecast than a person’s sun sign.
If you want to delve even deeper, you can find out what your moon sign is. You can then read your sun, moon and rising sign in your daily newspaper and this will give you a much more accurate reading of your own circumstances.
Horoscopes are just one part of astrology. Another popular form of astrology is natal astrology. This is when you get your birth chart drawn up by an astrologer. Your birth chart shows you which planets were in which signs, when you were born. It also gives you details of any conjunctions or other planetary alignments, present at your time of birth that may have an influence on your life today. Natal astrology is a good way to find out why you have chosen certain paths in life. It shows your character and can even highlight areas of difficulty, such as problems with parental figures and so on. It is very interesting and can be useful as a personality tool.

Symbology relates to the study of symbols. These can be common symbols we see every day, such as company logos, or the more abstract symbols in our lives. Such as those we see in our dreams. I am going to be focusing on abstract symbols, in this article.
Although there are some people who study this subject in depth, you can start to learn about the signs and symbols in your own life. You don’t have to be psychic to do this. If you aren’t sure where to start, try reading some books on the subject. Some dream books are very good at giving you the meanings of some of the most common symbols people often dream about. A common dream, that a lot of people have, is the dream of their teeth falling out. Most dream dictionaries are in agreement that this symbolises getting older, or taking on more responsibility; this relates to the real life experience of losing our baby teeth.
Dream dictionaries are a great place to start because the meanings of common symbols can be used to read the signs and symbols the universe sends you each day. If you keep seeing cats, for instance, you can look up the meaning of cat in your dream book and it will tell you that cats symbolise the supernatural, independence and femininity. You can then start to analyse why you keep seeing cats. Is the universe trying to teach you to be more like a cat? Probably.
