Do angels control the planets that make astrology real?
Do angels control the planets that make astrology real? A question I answered on Quora.
Straight answer – No!
There is no need for angels or for any other kind of intervention.
Astrology doesn’t work like that. It is better understood to work by correlation than by planets (or angels) having any direct influence on us.
In this view the planets don’t influence anything. They don’t need to! They act as markers in the framework of the astrological template.
This is notwithstanding that the Sun and Moon (treated as planets in astrology) do of course influence our lives. Without them we wouldn’t be here to ask or answer such questions.
What astrology provides is really quite simple. It is a symbolical and meaningful system that draws on the planets for the moving parts, that are placed in a zodiac framework set by Time and place – from the vantage point of the Earth.
But to begin to fully grasp this concept (and get astrology) you have to consider we also live in symbolical and meaningful circumstances. That’s a tough one for some people to get their heads around.
