Modern day physicists are exploring the great and the small realms in the universal manifold that the ancients referred to by the axiom “As above, so below.” Yet most are ignoring the mechanics an attributes of the Solar System with its planetary cycles and their “effects” on human life on Earth. Astrology is an ancient study mostly ignored by science. Fortunately the everyday citizen has a grasp of the importance of astrology for offering them a view of what may come ahead for them in life, and also for an understanding of their life potentials shown in their charts. These individuals have left behind the over-simplified newspaper astrological fortune telling, and have gone on where scientists fear to tread.
There are modern scientific theories that have given credence to an understanding of an all-pervading intelligence in the universe. Some find it in what they call the morphogenetic field, others find a source of life and intelligence in oscillating water molecules and their geometric patterning. And there are many other theories that pervade the scientific world. But these and others are lacking an awareness of the vibratory factors and intelligence in the rate of the rotation of the planets on their axis in combination with their orbital cycles defined by numerical tones. The source of the universe, consciousness and life may always remain a mystery, but as the notable physicist Richard Faynman once said, “It does no harm to the mystery to know a little bit about it.”
The Sun enlightens by the power of its electrical fire, and pulls, through its magnetic properties, the planets through the galaxy in a spiraling motion. Where is it all heading; in a circle – a circle that evolves and gathers more to the story of life, and then fades into yet another eternal theme, based on the mastermind of the universe itself, ever leaving humankind digging under the “wall” or attempting to climb its summit in search for truth and enlightenment.
The planets not only define their meaning through the duel spinning cyclic nature, but by the effects they have on one another as they make and break relationships with each other’s energy fields in motion. Our emotions are essential for conducting the messages from these “gods” of the hierarchy of meaning. We reflect their natures in and by several mysterious ways. We are connected through the manifold energy/intelligence in all space, and we interpret its importance and meaning through the sieve of our own personal experience. Each of us is born into a culture that molds our perception of life, and this can keep us locked into step with a whole generation of minds held back because of fear of taking bigger steps forward in awareness. Acknowledging the powers innate in the planets of our Solar System is a giant step forward in understanding life and its meaning.
From the Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones:
LEO 7 The constellations in the sky This is a symbol of the infinite regression in all universal reality, not as a fact of some unreachable end in knowledge but rather as a demonstration that any abandonment of the known for the sake of the unknown is fruitless. The cosmos is illimitable in the sense that man’s questing may ramify in time and space to the extent of any given pertinence, but his assurance lies within his own being and experience. The stars are his confirmation, never his explanation. The keyword is SURETY. When positive, the degree is consistent effectiveness in understanding and self-ordering, and when negative, a loss of all present integrity through an unnecessary retreat to the remote or mysterious.
