Ifa and astrology are both spiritual practices that originated from ancient African people groups. In fact, they can be considered one and the same when you understand the foundation and structure of both systems. They are spiritual systems of divination that involve understanding the interplay between spiritual forces in our daily lives.
Ifa utilizes an oracle to understand the complexities of life, while astrology interprets the movements of celestial bodies to gain insight into events on Earth. Together, they offer a holistic view of life, helping people make decisions in every aspect of their existence. For centuries, African people have used these practices to understand their past, present, and future. They also use them to gain insight into their lives and make decisions based on this knowledge.
Together, these systems provide a holistic approach to understanding our inner selves and the world around us. By combining an astrological chart reading with spiritual guidance through the Ifa oracle, we gain an in-depth understanding of how cosmic energies influence our lives. With this knowledge, we can make informed decisions about our future and how to make the most of our potential.
In this episode, Baba Gabriel and Dr. Asanee discuss the correlation between the Ifa tradition and astrology. And they delve into how you can use both to enhance your life and spiritual practice.
