The astrological principles associated with the Sun signs represent differing (and sometimes contradictory) aspects of human experience. To the uninitiated, a horoscope chart is little more than an inscrutable assortment of numbers and symbols. The astrologer is faced with the task of extracting an accurate interpretation from this seemingly arbitrary collection of squiggles and then communicating it to the client in a clear, concise manner. The exciting stories and dramatic images of the ancient zodiacal myths provide a handy method for relating traits typically associated with each of the signs to the lives of people born under that sign. By connecting the Sun signs with the universal archetypes found in mythology, we bring the astrological symbols to life and link them to everyday existence.

Either way, the question is not whether Graves reconstituted an old system, or created a new one. What’s important is whether or not the system works. It is only through continued use and repeated empirical testing that we can actually prove an astrological method’s validity. In the meantime, if Celtic Astrology works for you, and adds something valuable to your understanding of yourself and others, it really doesn’t matter if it was founded by the ancient Druids in 500 B.C.E., or by a modern “Druid” in the 20th century.
