Though seemingly affected only by its immediate surrounding,
the sphere of external influence extends to infinite distance."
~ Nikola Tesla
Most people associate astrology with the zodiac, but it's the planets
that give the signs meaning. Planetary cycles and their effects on Earth
have been observed and recorded for thousands of years. And they
operate consistently & reliably, like a finely-tuned machine.
and the luminaries are called planets, for brevity
Mathematics is the foundation of astrology and both systems
enable you to learn only the simple basics and do just fine;
or continue into the woo-woo realms, where few dare to tread.
So we all utilize basic math and chaos would reign without it!
But few of us utilize astrology and many would say chaos is
pouring psychologically & spiritually. And pills & preachers
are clearly not enough. What's missing is practical wisdom. Astrologers & quantum physicists agree that everything is born of energy,
so the question is how? Astrologers believe the answer lies in planetary frequencies, while modern physicists have their own ideas, and never
mind what that old Bohr said.
Astronomy & astrology were a match made in the heavens, but they grew apart in the Middle Ages and by the 18th century they were divorced. The Church attacked astrology for hundreds of years and scientific materialism
put further pressure that may have driven them apart. Astronomers now
align with scientists, academics and the Church to mock & scorn
astrology across the spectrum, disregarding its vital wisdom. .......... Many still burn with curiosity, but pointless complexities get in the way.
Yet all you need to know to read any birth chart are three simple basics!
And they're clearly defined on page three. Then, just relax on the surface
or dive in as deep as you please, because every stroke is illuminating. ............ "Though free to think and act, we are held together, like the stars
in the firmament, with ties inseparable. These ties cannot be seen,
but we can feel them." ~ Nikola Tesla
Many through the ages have sung astrology's praises. Here are a few more...
"An unfailing experience of mundane events in harmony with the changes
occurring in the heavens, has instructed and compelled my unwilling belief."
"Oh the wonderful knowledge to be found in the stars. Even the smallest things are written there... if you had but skill to read."
"The controls of life are structured as forms and nuclear arrangements,
in relation with the motions of the universe."
"The stars in the heavens sing a music if only we had ears to hear."
"It is clearly evident that most events of a widespread nature
draw their causes from the enveloping heavens."
Sir Francis Bacon...
"The natures and dispositions of men are, not without truth,
distinguished from the predominance of the planets."
"A physician without a knowledge of Astrology has no right
to call himself a physician."
"Anyone can be a millionaire, but to become a billionaire
you need an astrologer."
Sir Thomas Aquinas...
"The celestial Bodies are the Cause of All that takes
place in the Sublunar World."
Ralph Waldo Emerson...
"Astrology is astronomy brought down to yEarth and
applied toward the affairs of men."
"I always keep my weather eye on the opposition of
my seventh house Moon to my first house Mars."
