Flow with the Tide

There is a quotation from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar which I studied in secondary school, and which has stayed in my memory since. The passage is so descriptive of the philosophy of Astrology that I would like to share it with others:

"There is tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune,
Omitted, all the voyage of their lives,
Will be bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea we are now afloat,
That we must take the current when it serves,
Or lose our ventures."

Human affairs exist in cycles. In studying these cycles, Astrology helps us to flow with the tide and make the most out of our lives.
