What is the element of truth in astrology if any?
What is the element of truth in astrology if any? A question I answered on Quora.
A challenging question. Here’s my take on this… what I believe to be “the element of truth in astrology.”
Life on the Earth is meaningful, symbolical and I would add, spiritual/a good place for the awakening of consciousness.
And this goodness is all wrapped up in the vibration and frequency that we call TIME.
Time is a construct that is so much more than the simple linear process that we tend to think of it as being – while we are here and in it that is.*
By drawing on the regular cycles of the planets – as viewed from the Earth – and placing them within the zodiac structure, astrology, in the form of the birth-chart, provides an acausal lens and template for capturing and evaluating a given moment in Time – whether going forward or back.
The birth moment is further pinpointed in space and place by the use of longitude and latitude.
So, simply, astrology provides a mirror on meaningful moments in Time.
Astrology is not just for the Earth
And here’s a thought. I believe the concept of astrology will work elsewhere in the universe. This is on proviso that one can find big moving and regular markers – as in planets – and be able to attribute meaning to each of them. The matrix structure of 12 signs could most probably remain the same.
You should perhaps consider that whereas quantum physics is looking at the weirdness of the micro, astrology (proper astrology not the pop stuff) is one way of getting a handle on the weirdness of the macro.
Be not astonished at new ideas; for it is well known to you that a thing does not therefore cease to be true because it is not accepted by many. Spinoza
* I also believe we know, or are getting to know, other dimensions exist outside of Time.
