We all take for granted the sun’s diurnal and seasonal activity and its life-giving energy, but to many civilizations it was also its passage that marked the agricultural and seasonal alterations that were essential for survival and migration. For the ancients the Sun marked the passage of time, as it went through the twelve Celestial Houses of the Zodiac.
It is interesting to note that the Sun itself is one of the orbs that acquires the characteristics of every astrological house, or the personality of each zodiac sign it passes through. When we look deeper into the astrological methods used to divine the planets, we know, in part, the sun is not a planet, by a technical margin. It has a third path of travel known as the precession of the equinoxes, in which it retrogrades around the Zodiac through the twelve signs at the rate of one degree every 72 years.

The truth is that our ancestors created myths to encode important information for our benefit. Speaking the truth in those days resulted in death. An alternative was necessary. And so mythology conveys important messages to us from the past – a message of truth otherwise suppressed.
Today the truth is still suppressed in so many ways. There is the argument that our education systems and religious institutions do not teach us the truth. The most sickening recent examples of blatant suppression is that of radical religious extremism which has cost countless people their lives. I feel sad about how little we have done to stop these atrocities.
Unfortunately, you have to destroy a cancer. You cannot just ignore it like a minor case of the flu. You cannot just hope that it will go away. Recent terrorist attacks in the West patently illustrate that radicalism does indeed spread like a cancer. Radicalism is a dark force, just as cancer is a dark manifestation. It has to be eliminated.

I am always searching for ways to better anticipate timing, when in fact time does not actually exist. The idea of using an earth stone or gem may be helpful in establishing human timing, as in fact it may be so grounded in the earth principle that one would expect it would hopefully adhere and remain loyal to its original earthly form.
Using the planets, for example, are not always a helpful form of timing for me, as there are too many factors which may affect a planet. In fact its satellites, its sometimes slow or fast rotation, its ellipses, our lifespan – all these things can complicate our understanding of timing – which someone who has only rudimentary knowledge of Astrology knows is a complex study. I think that studying timing strictly via planets, satellites or constellations at a distance from us could also not be as accurate as believed, due to the light distortion or the bending of light, and in fact black holes or any array of gravitational lenses and unknown anomalies could distort our perception of the future, if it were mapped out astronomically with our technology.

There are many other things that the “muggles”, as depicted in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, do not notice. Here are some fascinating things that the muggles don’t know about Astrology:
Astrology is a highly developed art founded upon strong principles. Carl Jung was a famed Swiss psychiatrist and psychotherapist who founded analytical psychology. He also took a profound interest in the subject of Astrology. He went on record stating that “”Astrology is assured of recognition from psychology, without further restrictions, because astrology represents that summation, of all the psychological knowledge of antiquity.” Read the rest of this entry »
So much of our lives seems to be about balance. We spend so much time and energy trying to become more balanced. We are taught that if we balance our life things will be easier. If we are balanced we will be more in tune with nature. Balance your checkbook. Balance your weight. Balance your life and lifestyle. So many people feel as though they have failed themselves by never achieving this balance.
Well, maybe we are going about it all wrong. There was a time, when I believed all things in this universe were balanced. But, when you really stop to think about it. Nothing in this universe is balanced. It is continually flowing.
If we think about our solar system. It isn’t balanced at all. It continuously flows. The planets move in a procession through space. Harmonizing gracefully with one another. Rivers flow. Water flows. Our bodies, comprised mostly of water, flow. The blood in our veins, flows. Read the rest of this entry »
