What Astrology Is

Astrology is a symbolic language which involves the actual movement of the planets and constellations in the sky. It works, because the universe is one vast web, where all realities and time are connected into one unit, on a composite internal, spiritual and virtual level. Astrology can describe this web like no other field, but has in common with science, a backbone in its underlying structure of numerical patterns which are complicated, abstruse and elegant. The origins of astrology will never be known. Such a system ontologically could never have been derived by humankind. It was for this reason, that the great mathematical, artistic and scientific geniuses of the past knew it well: the great thinkers: Pythagoras, Galileo, Copernicus, Leonardo Da Vinci, Culpepper, Shakespeare, Chaucer, Yeats, and others referenced it, in their work. The richness of its ideas undergirded their thinking.

In the nineteenth century, when science became king, this knowledge began to go out the window and people began to view it as superstition. When “science and reason” took over from astrology the positive attributes accepted at the time of its zenith, were no longer understood, and an endarkenment of its value occurred.

In this century, many of us are trying to bring to the attention of those who have never been exposed to it, its relevance. It is an abstract language which describes reality and can delineate spiritual landscapes like no other field. It can give comfort, warn of risk and show large vistas of change ahead. It is a system like no other which has an affinity, to mathematics, music, physics, chemistry and other forms of abstruse theories.
