How could it all work- Astrology

AstrologyA couple of weeks ago I asked how people thought that Astrology actually worked. Well, as ever, the  universe seem to give me the answer to the question as soon as I asked it.

I was very lucky to receive a wonderful book for my birthday We’Moon 2016. Reading the introduction, things were put into words that I had long instinctively understood, but not articulated.

Sandra Pastorius,the author, asked, Is Astrology another Quantum Quandary?.

” Astrology and Quantum physics challenge the sciences. They both pose perplexing quandaries about how interactions between things can occur without apparent cause and effect, and about the vital role that human attention plays in the emergence of phenomena into reality.”

One of the laws of  Quantum physics law shows that we are  all fundamentally interconnected.

Also as Sandra said, ” Astrology evolved with the recognition that living things respond consciously to the pulse of celestial rhythms”

Not the whole of the answer then..but the beginnings of an insight into how things actually work!

Aspects of reality

Is astrology a satnav put their by an intelligent designer of some sort to help us with life’s decisions?

Or is just fundamental to the energetic construction of the universe?


The reality of astrology

AstrologyHappy New Year to you all. My gut instinct is that it will be an interesting one, but I will leave any predictions to the very clever astrologers out there!

The interesting thing to me is, not if, but why does astrology work? Well the answer, of course, depends on the true nature of our reality.

Aspects of reality

Is it a sat nav system put there by an intelligent designer or God of some sort, to help humanity? Is it just a function of the mathematics encoded in the construction of the universe? Or are the patterns it reveals just chance?



Astrology and Karma?

AstrologyWouldn’t you know it! Having decided to finish my Karma thread and move on to re-incarnation, someone made a comment that opened up a whole new area of thought on the subject.

Aqua man (mike) on G+ thanked me for my last post and mentioned that he had got into Karma via astrology. I then ask him how.

He said “Saturn in the natal chart is the main significator of karma. If it forms a difficult aspect, especially to the personal planets, this shows difficult karma incurred from bad living, usually from previous life. Saturn was known in western astrology as a malefic planet.It is known to cause delays,frustrations, burdens, suffering.Wherever it is placed in the birthchart difficulties occur.  7th house; personal relationships, 10th; career. etc,etc. No one has a perfect life and Saturn shows the sphere of life where difficulty lies. If well aspected, these difficulties are understood and accepted, and life gives the person tools to deal with negative circumstances, if badly aspected, life will not and the person will find the same themes repeating in their life. This is only a summary”.


Aspects of reality

-Astrology can indicate the Karma from past lives.

2-If this is true then the assumption is that we have lived many lives.

2- It also indicates a universal balance which Karma helps to maintain.

Astrological wisdom

AstrologyAs a December 31st baby I always think of every New Year as a new beginning. Like many others I cannot resist looking at the astrological predictions for my “star sign” Capricorn. Generalized predictions are always a bit unsatisfactory as the true picture does depend on other factors such as actual time of birth as well as date, after all our lives are as individuals and not just one of 12! I always think that astrology is not meant to be an absolute predictive mechanism, but more a satnav warning you about hazards and  showing you the best routes through the year.


The moon and astrology


In my moon sequence of posts I am looking at all aspects of how the moon affects out lives. Last week I looked at moon science. This week I am asking why the moon should affect our lives Astrologically. Future posts will look at the moon as a Goddess and moon magic.

Astrology and the moon. One of the interesting ways that the moon is supposed to affect humanity is in its use in astrology.

Western astrology uses the position of the sun, planets and other heavenly bodies at the time and date of your birth, to predict your characteristics and give you a star sign.(eg Taurus, Capricorn etc) In general terms, readings of the heavens on a daily basis for that sign can then be used to give on going guidance. Astrologically, the moon is said to show the characteristics of your subconscious mind and some say soul or spirit. It is also much concerned with emotions.

Chinese astrology is, of course, based on the cycles of the moon.

Both systems are not, as I once believed, to predict any fixed future, but seem to be set up – like a satellite navigation systems- to show us the way though life and point out any potential hazards or best paths in our lives.

Why should these systems work?

At base we are nothing but beings made of atoms in combination. We are held together by the energies generated by these atoms. We are energy beings living in a world of energies, gravitational, electromagnetic and biochemical, to name just a few. We live in an energy matrix. On one level, our thoughts are nothing more than biochemical energy. The moon is the nearest heavenly body to us. Its gravitational energies are very strong. It is entirely logical that those energies will affect us. Astrology can be seen as a way of quantifying this effect.

 The whole story?

Could the moon affect our lives in this way? Energetically, for reasons stated above, it must have a effect on us all. Could this effect be quantified into the astrological systems? Or does the existence of astrology itself seem to hint at a bigger picture of reality?

Aspects of reality

  • An intelligent designer of some sort created the system of sun or moon based astrology to help humanity.

  • The quantified astrological effects just reflect the underlying physics or mathematical codes embedded in the creation of the universe either at random or by deliberate design.








The reality of Astrology and racing drivers

  Astrology and racing drivers

A couple of weeks ago we were at the Spanish Grands Prix in Barcelona. Between support races  I casually  looked at the drivers info in the programme, and I noticed patterns in their dates of birth.

For instance, with 22 drivers on the grid, 4 were born in January, 5 in April and 6 in August. These rest were just singles, with 2 in July. There was no May, September, November or December birthdays. I promised myself that when I was back at my desk that I would investigte further, and see if there was a patten in their astrological signs. Which signs made the best racing drivers?


The reality of predictive mechanisms – Jonathon Cainer

When ever I am looking at the predictive skill and arts, I always come back to the most difficult question. Not do they work, because I have evidence that they do. But why should they work? What sort of reality, what mechanism built into this reality, would allow this to happen?


The reality of astrology in practice

What ever theories us lay people have that might explain how astrology actually works, I thought it worthwhile asking a very good astrologer that I know what her take on the whole thing was.

Karen is a very talented professional astrologer. She believes that astrology is a function of the interconnectedness of all things in the universe. Because the sun and moon and planets are the nearest heavenly bodies, they actually affect our lives. The energies they help to create at the moment of our birth affect our character and possible future. She even goes as far as stating that some souls actually choose their date of birth ( or conception) to enable them to choose the most useful energies to fulfill their life purpose. She also stated, most interestingly, that although our future seems written in these stars, of course we do have free will. We do not have to take any notice.

This is fascinating stuff. It was Karen that did my birth chart and that of my husband. She identified that although we were born three months and 5,000 miles apart our birth charts were almost identical. This did explain why from the moment we met, although from totally different back ground and experience, we understood each other totally.

Aspects of reality

Timing of birth and it’s energies affects your character and life. It can also help you understand yourself and others. Why should this be so? Is it a factor inherent in the make up of the universe or was it put there by a designer of some sort?


The reality of astrology

Of all the systems used to try to predict the future, the predictive arts, probably the best known is Astrology. It is so ancient that it’s origins are lost in the sands of time. Astrologers believe that the position of the stars and planets at the time of your birth can determine both your character and your possible life path. They also believe that, on a day to day basis, the position of the heavenly bodies can indicate possibilities and dangers in daily life ( I call this the satnav function). This can be accessed  by drawing up horoscopes.
