Once upon a time, astronomy and astrology were the same. Scholars studied the movement of the planets to predict the behavior of humans, wars, natural disasters, the rise and fall of empires, and other human concerns. During the 17th and 18th Centuries (the Age of Reason) as a result of work by Johannes Kepler, Galileo Galilei, and Isaac Newton, the distinction between the two arose and astrology lost its importance in the scientific community. However, astrology still remains an important part of eastern and western cultures.
Have you ever wondered why some people are drawn to astrology?
Astrology reminds me of the days when alchemy and magic were an integral part of culture. It was a time when people believed in superstitions and took an active part in creating their reality through rituals, spells, and hands-on sympathetic magic. It provided people with a substance for the belief that was tangible. Concocting love and healing potions, by using the tremendous power of belief and words, is downright magical. When we brew magical ingredients into a pot, chanting powerful incantations and ordaining our heart’s desires, our beliefs become stronger, connecting us to an ancient past of seers, magicians, and alchemists.
Wouldn’t it be fun to believe in magic again? Why not experiment with it and see if a bit of astrology appeals to your soul. Here is a little experiment: On February 13th the planet Mercury will go into the sun sign of Aquarius. If you pay attention, you’ll notice people are a lot more chatty, no matter where you go. They’ll chat you up on lines, bus stops, in the office, at the water cooler. Pay careful attention to this and see for yourself!
