Astrology has turned into something it was not, thousands of years ago.
First, Astrology thousands of years ago was not based on a fixed wheel that never changed...but the cosmos were observed for what they really were.
Some did try to make predictions with the cosmos, but I believe the practice mainly was to seek reflections of a persons path. Not so much to look for
future events, but look at past events and see if there was a reflection of that event somehow with the cosmos.
I also think the cosmos are more like a mechanic mechanism. As the Earth wobbles, and tilts, and moves around the Sun, while the Sun moves around the
galactic center....its like a series of gears working and all forms of energy are connected to eachother. If the mechanics of ones spheres positions
are misunderstood (through bad information) its possible that persons inner compass will seem 'off'. I believe that the energies of the spheres are
not so much for traits and attributes, forming us to be who we are and what we do.....but more so like anything of nature, its there to be used, if we
feel in need of it.
Its s personal path of seeking....just like no one can tell you what God really is, no one can really tell you what each sphere means to you on a
deeper personal level.
I think Astrology (the modern form today ) is very watered down and is too much about horoscopes and traits of signs. Plus....with a fixed wheel
(tropical) only 20% of the signs match up todays positions of the Sun. Sidereal is ok...but it still like tropical does not acknowledge that each
space of each constellation is NOT the same size and they both ignore that the Sun passes through Ophiuchus, a extra sign. There is a man in Japan who
is actually using a 13 sign zodiac and I have taken to this practice as well, have a thread on ATS offering positions. I use a wheel that reflects
what a person can observe in the sky, not a made up wheel that does not reflect the true sky. I dont give predictions or readings, but encourage
people to step out on their own and not lean on another for what THEIR path is for them.
The fixed wheel became used a little under 2000 years ago and has not changed much since. People think they are using some ancient practice, when many
ancients did not use a fixed wheel but used true observations (which would be closer to astronomy).
The basic reasons for the imaginary equal amounts of space for each sign is convenience to make a simple wheel. When it came to Ophiuchus, it was
noted 13 signs didnt fit nicely into a wheel, so the flip of the coin was between Ophiuchus and Scorpio, Scorpio won. Astrologist say this shouldnt
matter because Scorpio and Ophiuchus have similar traits...I would disagree that it does matter if you really are going to claim there is something to
I think we are all born into cycles, I think the constellations are archetypes of man showing alot of history about us. We are of all these
archetypes, not just one. One may resonate with you more so then others, and it may not be your sign your Sun was in according to astrology or
astronomy. If we limit ourselves to one sign, we can not take leaps. If we look at them all, see what things we need to work on in each sign, we can
take leaps in our path.
Someone may sense a particular energy from Mars, in a personal way. Someone else may sense a different energy from Mars, in their own personal
observations. If we await someone else or book to tell us what things mean for us on a deeper level (we are very known for doing this) then we limit
ourselves to being here as a individual who is able to seek personal paths, within.
You can go to an astrology site right now and likely will find them saying Mars and Venus are in Libra....Uranus and Jupiter in Aries....the Sun in
If you were to observe the true night sky (and day sky) the Sun is not in Virgo...Mars and Venus are not in Libra....Uranus and Jupiter are not in
Many do not realize this...and they place faith in the positions given by astrology using an imaginary wheel that does not represent our true sky.
I say if you want to learn about the energy of the cosmos, you must seek this path in a personal way instead of through someone else, you must step
out and observe often the cosmos and energies (observer makes all the difference of how particles/waves behave), and you need to use astronomy which
follows the changing sky, from Earths perspective.
