Most people associate astrology with the zodiac, but it's the planets that
give the signs meaning. Planetary frequencies are the alphabet of energy
and the engine of consciousness and function like a finely-tuned machine. Quantum physicists also embrace the concept that everything is energy, though they have their own ideas about how. And never mind what
that old Bohr said.

{the luminaries are also called planets, for brevity}

Astrology or astrologos is the calculation of celestial cycles in relation to life on Earth. Its influences have been recorded for thousands of years and remain consistent & reliable. Astrology is grounded in mathematics and both systems have been used since antiquity to guide our evolution. And both uniquely enable us to learn only the basics and do just fine, or keep exploring and expanding, deep into the woo-woo realms.

astrology & math each compose 10 essential parts

So we all utilize basic math and chaos would surely reign without it, but
how many of us utilize astrology? And you could say chaos is pouring psychologically & spiritually. So are pills & religion really enough?

Astronomy [star law] & astrology [star logic] were made for each other, but
grew apart in the Middle Ages and by the 18th century they were divorced. Astrology was vilified by The Church for hundreds of years and surely strained the relationship, and the dawn of scientific materialism meant no hope of a reconciliation. Astronomers & Academia now align with The Church to mock
& scorn astrology and dampen interest across the spectrum.

And the few who still burn with curiosity are daunted when the basics are buried in layered complexities. Yet three simple essentials are all you need
to know to read any birth chart and they're clearly defined on page three.
And then you can float on the surface or dive as deeply as you please,
because every stroke is illuminating.

Many through the ages have sung astrology's praises. Here are a few more...

Johannes Kepler...
"An unfailing experience of mundane events in harmony with the changes
occurring in the heavens, has instructed and compelled my unwilling belief."

""Practices do not persist for thousands of years, and
in diverse cultures, without results." link
