If you’re looking for an energetic practice that will help you align with yourself, you may want to consider biorhythms. Biorhythms the study of the biological energy cycles of individuals. There is a belief that by studying these cycles, we are able to determine which days are better or worse for certain activities. If this sounds familiar, it’s probably because it relates very closely to astrology and determining which days are better or worse for certain activities based on aspects such as trine ir square energies. Combining biorhythms and astrology could be an effective way to learn more about your personal energetic makeup as it could help you gain more insight into how you can use both the energy within yourself as well as the energy from the planetary bodies to make the most of your life.
So, what exactly are biorhythms? Essentially, biorhythms are rhythmic biological cycles that influence specific aspects of our character. By reading and understanding the energy associated with these cycles we are able to make predictions about which tasks and/or activities that are best to perform or avoid on any particular day. In general, there are three main cyclic rhythms or cycles. They are the physical, the emotional, and the mental or intellectual. There is also a fourth intuitive cycle that is sometimes added to biorhythm readings. Biorhythm readings are provided via a machine that prints out a graph of the various cycles by entering birth date information. There are also resources that provide biorhythm charts online by entering in your basic birth date information. In turn, you will receive a graph with the three main rhythmic cycles with details on the various energy levels and which activities are best favorable or not advantageous for the given day.Read More »
The physical cycle lasts for 23 days and represents your overall bodily strength and physical well-being. When the graph for the biorhythm is at a high level, you are in your most optimal physical condition and you can expect to feel at your best and to be able to fight off disease and ward off general physical discomfort. When the biorhythm is below the median on the graph, or at a negative value, it is best to rest and avoid strenuous activities.
The emotional cycle lasts for 28 days and focuses on your overall emotional well-being, mood, perception, and feelings. A high reading marks a general state of emotional well-being that promotes a sound mind, effective communication, and ease of socialization. A low reading is linked to depression and sadness and a lack of sound judgment. Days with readings at the lower end of the spectrum are best for falling back and thoroughly analyzing the emotional state. It is best to avoid making important decisions at this time as they will lack logic and emotional soundness.
The intellectual cycle is 33 days long, and it encompasses analytical thinking, logical ability, memory recall, and effective communication. When your biorhythm is high, you’re at your best when it comes to any form of learning, memory recollection, and/or rational communication. You can depend upon your logical mind to function at its best. When the biorhythm is below the median, you may experience brain fog and the inability to process information correctly. During this time, it is best to avoid activities that require mental acuity.
While these are the three main biorhythm cycles, there is a fourth intuition cycle that is sometimes included on biorhythm charts. The intuition cycle focuses on our ability to tap into our inner-knowing. When your biorhythm is high on the intuition cycle, you can trust that your intuition will guide you to the correct answers. However, if your intuition cycle is below the median, beware of making important decisions based off of your gut instincts as your intuition could be off.
Connecting Biorhythms to Astrology
Biorhythms and astrology are connected through energy. Biorhythms focus on the individual energetic response to specific energies while astrology focuses on planetary energetic influence.
For example, let’s say there is a Moon square Mercury on a specific day. This tense aspect between the Moon which is emotions and Mercury which is the mind is indicative of the clash between the emotional and the mental bodies. This discordant energy can make it difficult to effectively express how you feel or saying things that you don’t mean because you’re overly emotional.
If you were to run a biorhythm chart for that same day, and it showed that the mental and the emotional cycles were on the lower end, then you would have personal confirmation that this particular day is not the best for you mentally and emotionally. This is an example of how astrology and biorhythms are utilized simultaneously to help us understand how to navigate our inner energies while also considering the impact of astrology.
Putting Biorhythms & Astrology To Use
Uniting biorhythms and astrology for personal use is pretty easy. Both of these energetic practices utilize charts based on the date of birth to provide information about the energetic influence on an individual. The biorhythm chart is synonymous with the natal chart in astrology. The biorhythm chart provides a graphic representation of each of the main cycles which features a waveform that calculates energy variances across a specified time. The individual tracks the level of a specific cycle by monitoring where the graph line is located along the meridian. If the line goes above the baseline, this represents the higher expression of that particular energetic cycle while a line below the meridian represents a negative expression of that particular energetic cycle.
Similarly, in astrology, transit charts provide a time-based analysis of current astrological energies. Transit charts utilize both the natal chart and current planetary energies in comparison to each other to determine how the current planetary energies impact an individual by noting the aspects between transiting and natal planets.
By combining the information derived from biorhythm and transit charts in astrology, individuals are able to gauge where they stand mentally, emotionally, physically, and intuitively. This is an excellent way to get to know oneself on a deeper level by focusing on both personal as well as planetary energetic patterns.
