The Hermetic maxim states: As above, so below;  as within, so without;  as the universe, so the soul.  It evolved from the details of the Emerald Tablet,  attributed to Hermes Trismegistus.  Hermes was considered  "thrice great", for  having attained knowledge of  Alchemy (the operation of the Sun), Astrology (the operation of the stars), and  Theurgy/Divine Magic (the operation of the gods).   The correlation between the sky's major transits, and the impact on the individual can be referred to as "spiritual alchemy" at work.  

 Astrology works with the horoscope, a symbol of transformation.  It is a mandala, a circle, a whole.  Wholeness is an  integrating principle in the process of individuation, and wholeness begins with the inner exploration of the soul, that uniquely personal factor that includes the mind, the emotions, and the actions-based will.  The Hermetic Formulary addresses wholeness this way:  body, soul, and spirit=Ascendant, Moon, Sun.  The message is clear:  Be whole, be well, and allow  your essence to bring forth spirit.   "Inspirited", then, is a word to describe this process.  It starts with being infused with the life force energy.  Connecting to nature, in all its transcendent truth, beauty, and goodness, is one way to tune in during this time of change.
