is the bringing together of what started together. The study of
Astronomy and Astrology. It seems they have taken two different
directions but as we look closer, we see that the two have actually
developed two sides of the same phenomenon.
the one hand, we have Astronomy,
giving us all the hard facts about the world around us as far
as the human mind can see and understand. All that data
is calculated and computed to create a visual picture of what
we can see and measure and therefore, perceive to be real.
deals with interaction between astral bodies and how they affect
each other. From an Astronomy point of view, we seldom think about
the interaction between people and astral bodies. Unless
we consider the possible contact or close encounter of some astral
body with Earth ( like asteroids). Yes, close encounter,
because when two astral bodies are in close proximity to one another,
a very measurable difference is indicated in their speed, velocity,
acceleration, and gravitational effects among other things. Astronomy
does not deal or dwell a great deal with how these close encounters
affect people or life on our planet.
the other hand, we have Astrology
which considers some of this data and extends it to people and
life on Earth. Much of this data is gathered from historical
archives. Simply correlating what is observed in the heavens
to what is observed on Earth Life. This has traditionally
been a little hard to accept because the physics of Astrology
seems to go where no man has gone before, or more accurately,
see what few men have seen before. OK perhaps you think we're
getting a bit into the twilight zone. Well perhaps we need to
look into the twilight to see what is in plain light.
planetary patterns created by the planets and the other astral
bodies, has a marked and measurable affect on situations here
on Earth. For example, we determined that every 11 years,
there are unusual phenomenon on earth and in the behavior and/or
health or condition of life on earth. We can correlate these
phenomenon with the unusual solar activity we know as solar flares.
This idea that the behavior of a star, our sun, can have
an affect on life, our lives, is quite evident today. At
times, this solar activity is so pronounced that it interferes
with our communication systems. Cell phones stop working,
radio reception is distorted, and many high tech equipment is
affected. Wow, now we have to change the way we do things traditionally
(like no cell phones) because some astral body has bridged the
gap between the physical and the metaphysical. Our psyche is affected,
and we actually have information at our disposal that can warn
us of these upcoming events. We don't actually know this is going
to happen but we have a pretty good idea that it will by looking
at the historical archives. The same type of historical
archives that much of astrology is based on.
the fact that there is not only a connection or influence of energies
between the astral bodies but also between the astral bodies and
the human body, we arrive at ASTRONOLOGY.
