Astrology Isn’t “Real”
The planets: they impel rather than compel us. As an astrologer, I have been following the pseudoscience for 45 years. There are correspondences between what happens in the sky and how we (re)act. That’s really all it is.My recent comment on an Ellie Dreams Down Under YouTube video
Honestly, this isn’t as earthshaking as it might appear at first. As a member of our Faith & Science group once stated: how can some rocks circling the earth influence us? (That statement is paraphrased, but I’m sure you get the gist of it.) If anything, astrology is based on the apparent sighting of the night sky from more than 2,000 years ago. With the movement of the zodiacal signs over time, these same ‘indicators’ no longer line up to the same spaces. (It’s called “procession of the equinoxes”.)
What this means, in layman’s terms, is that we have imbued the planets and the signs with the ability to ‘rule’ us as if they were gods. But that power is only from us, not the Universe. As far as the rest is concerned, life is cyclical, and it continues to eternity, without any direct reference to we human-beings and our little lives. Whether we live, or whether we die, the world would keep on turning, as it always has and always will. We place ourselves at the top of the planetary life, even though nothing supports that view, except our egos.
