Everyone has a hard time justifying astrology as a science due
to the wide variations that exist within the world of humans.
The definition of astrology is an ancient system of divination
using the positions of the planets, moon, and stars. According
to astrology, the celestial bodies exert specific energies that
influence people and events. These influences may be determined
by mapping positions in the sky at various times, but is still
regarded today as a huge speculative issue due to the deep
complexities and misunderstanding associating the field. What if
the powers of Astrology had a deeper meaning, which stretched
into the spiritual world and the ethereal planes of existence, including the very top-tier planes of power. Astrology is widely
interpreted by every human on earth, but only a certain few have
a defined ability to understand anything about it. A fair amount
of people define astrology as "nonsense" and "childish" through
lack of understanding. These are of course the usual human
reactions to something we can't understand.
How are the powers of astrology currently portrayed to the
world? Currently, people manifest numbers and equations on
planetary alignments, star locations, the apparent divine powers
the sun has and also the moon. Their conclusion of what is the
horoscope is usually the external scripture you will read. While
largely amusing, holds little scientific merit. Astrology needs
to be valued more than just this. It is a concept to be
considered for all walks of life; it holds bearing to the time
continuum of the past, present and future settings on earth.
The human race has existed for a great deal of time now and has
since evolved heavily in appearance, behaviour, intelligence,
structure, strength, ability, perception and so much more. Some
people consider the present to hold the "maximum amount of
people time has ever seen" but again we can only speculate about
such mysteries told of the highly advanced civilization that
apparently walked earth (theosophists define it as Atlantis, the
real society and cultural name is unheard) and the age old
question of just how long has the world existed? The documented
time that has existed shows the definitive lives of several
billion people, all born under the same planetary rotation of
the earth, which is 365 days or 52.177 weeks. This universal
pre-set time fixture of 365 has dated and cycled existence
accordingly throughout several millions of years, and in that
time has been rotating humans. Currently the study of astrology
and namely Astrologists are people who predict the future by the
positions of the planets and sun and moon. They do this based on
their own interpretation and creativity, which can be as
inventive as the person likes.
Astrology to some is just a shallow fabric of life to help them
feel better by reading what is known as "Powerful wording"
written by novelists and professional writers. It is widely
under-appreciated the similarities that hold true in the
definition of each human's star sign. In that I mean for every
500 people born in August for example, on the exact same date,
hold a very strong connection to each other in terms of their
memories, philosophies, beliefs and behaviour. All things whichastrology boasts, these are relations not understood by many. It
is in that key of understanding and spiritual-thinking that
makes people wonder how many humans were born at the exact same
moment in time you were, only altering the year. If we were to
find that spiritual connection, just how much like that person
would we be? If you were to consider sun-sign astrology ONLY, this would be fallible due to the alteration of the
physical plane of life, which is earth's galaxy.
If you were to consider all aspects and relations, the planes of
existence, powers to be and the akashic records, these spiritual
points all connect to the "collective consciousness" Carl Jung
was referring to. The collective consciousness is only Jung's
interpretation and hence a vague reference to the gateways he
portrayed. Jung attempted to show the connections between
dreams, anthropology and the dualism of life to astrology. His
work always showed these links but the people could never grasp
the concept of them, given a large amount of humans will only
work on what they perceive to be fact-based evidence. The
creation of humans defined by scientists is a great example of
what can be construed as myth or fact. Physical items "prove"
evolution to be the definitive, such as bones and relics
discovered at different points in time. We believe this to be
the truth because we perceive it based on our senses, which is
as far as some people can stretch their mind.
This article is making a bold question to the beliefs of "Astrology", the purpose intended is to get people thinking
about the world and the deeper meanings it has to offer.
Consider the relations, sources and relevant knowledge available
to you and you'll always keep an open mind to the question that
everyone asks. "What is life".
