Our brain and the Evolution

We have written several articles related to how the human being functions, astrology, and the evolution of consciousness. Over time, one became interested in the subject, since a curious mind wants to find out how things work. Several authors have written about scientific research related to how the brain functions such as David L Weiner, Joel Garreau, Jeffrey Schwartz – MD, Rebecca Gladding – MD, Karl H. Pribram – MD, Stanislav Grof – MD, just to mention a few. Other authors who give a more spiritual approach to personal development, such as the Franciscan Richard Rohr, or the shaman Don Miguel Ruiz among others. All research as well as spiritual guidance aim to the development of consciousness.

For someone like myself coming from the computer field, with a successful career of more than 30 years, always keeping in parallel a research in astrology makes it easy to connect current knowledge of the functioning of the brain, with astrology concepts.

Although astrology is not currently considered as a branch of psychology by science, there is all the evidence that it should be included. Every time a new development in science emerged, it is confronted by the “establishment”, for breaking with the “status quo”, and the interests of those who are already entrenched in their professional careers.

Psychoanalysis was challenged in its beginnings, and in its path of acceptance, Karl Jung was left aside, for his open approach and techniques which also included astrology. In this regard, Sigmund Freud disagreed with Jung, and by consensus; Freud’s theories were taken as the only truth. This marginalization is not a coincidence, since the Catholic Church had sentenced astrology in the 16th century.

One of the most famous works condemning astrology was Pico della Mirandella’s, “Disputations against Adivinatory Astrology,” published in 1496, which detailed problems with astrological theory and technique and condemned the denial of free will, that Mirandella saw in astrological practice.

In 1586, Pope Sixtus V issued a papal bull condemning magic and all forms of divination, including horary, electoral, and natal astrology. That is, it included astrology with other divination methods, when astrology is governed by astronomical concepts and mathematical calculations, and aims to measure the active energies in the person and the environment based on movement of the solar system.

In reality, we cannot judge the Pope or his followers for these determinations, since they were taken from mere ignorance of how things work. At that time, there was neither NASA nor the European space agency ,that could explain them that each planet in the solar system has a particular vibration and sound, and they put out energy that influence us, that the hormonal cycle of women is governed by the cycles of the Moon, just as the gestation process and so on.

Every rule was based on a doctrine that was taught and enforced vertically, depending on the “enlightened” on duty who was occupying the throne of Saint Peter.

The Gregorian calendar, the one we used to this day was decided by Pope Gregory XIII after several consultations, modifying the starting of the year from the spring equinox in the northern hemisphere,  to January 1st. Although this calendar is not exact as compared to the previous one, since it has a time deviation with the orbit of the earth, it is still been used today.

This brief review just to point out, how our today’s life is been influenced by determinations taken centuries ago. As we can see, the Catholic Church had complete authority over what was and was not, and ruled lives of millions on the western hemisphere, and in many cases we continue to live, under these erroneous standards or concepts.

If we refer to astrology, science continued with what was established by the church long time ago, considering it a method of divination, with which it continues to be linked to witchcraft and Satanism, beyond the fact, that scientific analyzes were never made to endorse or refute  its concepts.

The science of today became the church of yesterday, they judge and sentence as the only truth. We must ask the question, if we are so advanced in science, how is it that until now there has not been a cure for cancer, AIDS, the prevention of a heart attack or an aneurysm. Just to cite one example, President G.W. Bush authorized the spending of $ 3.7 billion for research into robot medicine, going into the bloodstream to destroy cancer cells or fat cells. That was 17 years ago, which for science is as if a millennium passed. Does anyone know the result of that investigation? It was and is a lot of money; I think that we could expect some results from that research. If we talk about the current virus, where science is having little success, going back and forth trying to find remedies to the virus. Today at world level, we follow the same pattern as the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic, when at that time; science was just beginning to gain weight. The parallelism is incredible! (On our blog, there is an astrological analysis with the comparison and trends).

The point is not to question science per se, but if it we accepted it without any question, it becomes another religion, where there are many good things in it, mixed with erroneous concepts.

Just consider how science has help in human’s personal development. Science has not improved the living conditions for billions of people on the planet; moreover, some social conditions have worsened. We are not only referring to the basic things such as food, housing, education and health, but to people’s mental state.

We have advanced in the knowledge on how the brain works, but science seems to only be in charge of ‘discovering’ things. Very little effort is put into prevention. They are always trying to catch up with a given situation and trying to find a remedy of a condition. You can fix a glass after broken, but it will never be the same as before.

The functioning of our brain is as fragile as glass. All our effort as people and as an organized society (which includes science), should be aimed at developing habits and customs in our children that aim to improve the quality of life, both of them and in their environment. We talk about improving the environment, but it seems that we do not understand what environment means. Everyone expects the other to do something, but to change something; you have to start with yourself.

If we could understand what or where is the problem, we could work on changing bad habits and more importantly, we would teach that to those who follow us. The future, the children that are growing up, which are learning what life is, what society is, what the world is.

Our brain has components that interact 24 hours a day, whether we are aware of it or not.

The different components include the characteristics of our DNA, but not only by this. If it was just DNA , then it would be very easy to determine a person’s behavior pattern. Apart from DNA, we must consider what the mother transmits to the baby in the womb during the gestation period, her emotional and physical states, as well as events that occur in her ‘environment’, and the experiences and education of the baby after birth.

From the moment of birth, astrology determines the basic characteristics of the newborn, and from that moment on it is possible to know what their evolutionary main points and cycles will be.

Astrology has well defined the different stages of evolution of the person, represented by the intervening planets. Each planet has a different vibration and depending on the aspect you make with the natal chart, this is how the energies will be activated. We are not predicting the future, we are simply saying what conditions will exist. We are the ones who determines what to do or not to do at all times. It could be compared with the meteorological aspects, that for example, when a low pressure system is near, there is a high possibilities of rain. They are the atmospheric conditions by which one can ‘predict’ what kind of weather is coming, it’s up to us to go out with an umbrella or not. If we consider the weather forecast as a divination system, then meteorologists are witches!

Our brain works based on electrical impulses and chemical reactions. Both could be influenced by external elements. For example, if we drink several glasses of liquor, it will be in our bloodstream, it will reach our brain, and it will affect its operation. We can say it is a direct induction method.

Now let us consider the situation when we enter a place that we do not know, and just by entering, we feel uncomfortable, annoyed or we do not like it. What happened? Why do we feel the way we feel, what makes us feel that way?

Why there are natural places that we like to go in preference to others?

Did you ever ask yourself the question why?

The same thing happens with other people. You may meet someone you have not seen before, and you feel comfortable, at ease; or on the contrary, meeting someone that just by saying hello, you reject the person; you don’t like him or her.

Everything that we are, that we feel, that we think, it is processed in our brain, and it responds to certain stimulus that you may be able to see or know, and to others that you are not aware.

That is an aspect to life where astrology has an explanation where science does not.

As mentioned in several previous articles, how do you explain that on any given day, for no apparent reason, you wake up and you are at war with the world? Everything bothers you, and after few hours, that feeling goes away by itself.

If we look at the natal chart, we will probably see that there was an aspect of the Moon that generated that energy, which was represented in a state of mind. In our brain, something had influenced the electrical energy and chemical reactions between neurons that made us feel that way.

That would be the ‘fatalistic’ view that says that we are victims of circumstances. However, on the other hand, there is the most important part that we have as human beings, which is consciousness. Consciousness allows us to rationalize what happens to us, and modify the way we feel. This would be the response of a person with a certain degree of evolution.

We could say that our brain is a biological machine, but our consciousness is above it. Consciousness can control and manage the brain. Our ‘natural’ reaction is what our biological machine does based on our programmed patterns such as DNA, life experience, education and others; but consciousness is there to be developed.

Consciousness is initially in its natural state, aligned with the brain operation.

Depending on our stage of consciousness evolution, so it will be our life experience. Our natal chart can determine are original state, which could be compare to a rough and natural stone. Now, if through our development we worked trying to raise the level of consciousness, that rough stone can become polish and smooth. By working on our personal development, we are going to expand and modify our neural network, leading us to overcome the original ‘natural’ conditions, which usually are our challenges. Once we overcome our challenges, we will be less vulnerable and affected by outside energies from our ‘environment’, regardless where they come from (people, planets and the rest).

There is a way up, and there is a way down. In the same way that we can evolve in our consciousness, we can go to our most primitive state, which would be represented by our life be run under domination of our conditioning factors.

The brain does not know what is right, or what is wrong; neither knows what it is to evolve. The brain is just a processor. Our consciousness is what drives our life and show what we really are.

To raise our consciousness, we must ‘feed’ our brain everything that serves to keep it active, and at its maximum productive capacity. Nowadays the mind is occupied with news, social media and electronic games. This is a direct way to bring our brain back to its primitive and rudimentary form.

We are seeing it daily in the world. Division in societies faced by ideals that lead nowhere, void of substance and with victories and objectives without any added value.

From the astrological point of view, it is well noted that the energies active in this period are very challenging, but in no way do they justify what is happening in the world. What is happening, it is simply indicating the degree of abandonment in which the human evolutionary process is. Science may be at a very high level, but as a human race, we are at one of the lowest points in consciousness development.

We will have to hit rock bottom or something extremely serious will have to happen in the world, for humanity to return to the path of consciousness development.

Today from what we see, development is not our priority.

Venus Synodic Cycle

Today we are going to refer to the planet Venus, one of the most observed and considered according to records found from ancient civilizations.

The Sumerians called it Inanna, the Assyrians Ishtar; as goddesses, Isis for the Egyptians, Aphrodite for the Greeks and Venus for the Romans. The Mayans in the temple of Uxmal, had openings to follow the movement of Venus.

At first it was believed that Venus were two different stars, since at times they were seen at dawn and at other times at twilight, until it was discovered that it was the same star. This happens since in its translation around the Sun, Venus appears as the morning star when it is closest to the earth, also known as ‘Lucifer’ in this position, and ‘Hesperus’ when it is further away and looks like the evening star.

Venus like Mercury, are the only planets that do not have moons. In size, it is similar to the earth, but its rotation is much slower. A rotation on its axis takes 243 Earth days, and the rotation around the Sun is 224 Earth days, making a day longer than a year on Venus. Another oddity is that, it is the only planet that rotates in the opposite direction compared with the other planets in the solar system.

Venus was always considered in relation to love, beauty and fertility. In astrology beyond these concepts, it is also related to the arts, finances and creativity, and is the ruler of the signs of Taurus and Libra.

Venus has another characteristic that may not be known, called the ‘Venus Synodic Cycle’. This cycle, if we graph it in space, has a very particular shape, which is the shape of the five-pointed star. We see almost daily this figure in different symbols and advertisements. This aspect was already known in ancient times and was depicted in their temples.

Venus has 584 synodic cycle days, with 5 synodic cycles every 8 years. This pattern repeats every 243 years, with a couple of transits that are repeated 8 years apart, with a long absent period that can range from 121 ½ to 105 ½ years. The next cycle will take place between December 10-11, 2117 and December 8, 2125.

Since Venus’s orbit is located between the Earth and the Sun, when Venus passes between them, an event that with the Moon is called an eclipse, in the case of Venus; it is called a ‘transit’.

The synodic cycle is related to the number five, which contains three components, Venus, the Sun and the Earth. The number five takes on importance since, as we know, it is present in human beings in the five senses, the fingers and toes, the five parts of the body that separate from the trunk, as well as in nature in general. If we join the five points of the star from the outside, we obtain a pentagon. Another very well-known symbol. Both have been used throughout history in religious, political, and government-related issues.

Each ‘transit’ point is called a ‘star point’, and these points occur only in the signs of Aries, Gemini, Leo, Scorpio and Capricorn.

From astrology’s point of view, the star points are considered as moments where the energy is magnified in relation to the themes associated with Venus.

As mentioned, there are two very well differentiated versions of Venus, one of which is the morning star and the other the twilight or evening star. In the natal chart, depending on the position of Venus with respect to the Sun, whether it is positioned clockwise (Lucifer) or counter-clockwise (Hesperus), the characteristics of the emotional aspect of the person can be determined.

Those who correspond to Venus in the morning (Lucifer) tend to feel first and think later. They are natural and spontaneous from an emotional point of view, and open to new experiences. They usually recover quickly from a bad relationship.

Natives who correspond to Venus of twilight (Hesperus) tend to be more reserved expressing their feelings. In contrast to the natives of Venus in the morning, when they have disagreements or bad experiences in the sentimental area, they keep the wounds alive, reviving them permanently, and they harbor a great resentment (which influences any future relationship). They have a hard time overcoming emotional problems.

There is a book by Arielle Guttman related to the karmic effects of the ‘star point’, which explains the relationship of the date on which the star point happened before birth with lived events. Following the 8-year cycle from that starting point, the events at 8, 16, 24 and following years in that pattern, would have to be considered, since there is probably a relationship between the star point and circumstances in the sentimental and/or emotional aspects that occurred during these periods.

Computers, Humans and Astrology

How many people know that computers, which later became cell phones, Smart TVs and so on, were created based on how human beings function? While at the beginning it may not seem like this, in our present days with the advancement of robotics and artificial intelligence, it is easier to identify. We can see it in the robots that are on the market, such as the android called ‘Sophia’, to which was given the citizenship of Saudi Arabia and also did a presentation at the United Nations.

When computing began it was more difficult to distinguish it, but today we could say that computers created by scientists and technicians where following in “its own image”. A phrase used to identify the human being and its creator.

What follows is an analysis in order to delve into the essence of the human being, its operating mechanism and its “programming and free will”. This analysis could be rejected due to deep-rooted beliefs system that one has, but for those who will reject it, I would ask you to present an alternative to what is presented here. In other words, you can replace something, but with something else, not just to criticize the idea or to polemicize.

As a civilization, we believe that we have advanced and we are at the cusp of our development, but as we can see today, in the face of a pandemic, the response to the problem was to lock up people worldwide. What is the scientific advance that we boast so much about, if in the face of a not common every day health problem, the solution is confinement? It is that everyone is so numb that prevents questioning such advance of medicine, or the effectiveness of health systems? Are we really so advanced as they want us to believe?

Looks like our beliefs systems don’t go in line with what happens!

This discussion is for understanding where our beliefs come from, which we are going to call it ‘our programming’. There is enough information available, which explains the ‘techniques’ that exist to ‘program’ the actions of people. This is nothing new, and it has been around and used by the ruling class for millennia. Methods of personal and/or social programming have been more evident in more recent times with Nazism in Germany, for example.

How can anyone explain that elementary school age children could dress up and do the Nazi salute? What idea can a child have of the economy, politics or the world?

Another-one, in the opera ‘Evita’, which was very famous in the 70s, and refers to Eva Duarte de Perón, who was the wife of the president of Argentina in the late 40s, early 50s, there is a song called ‘Santa Evita’. This song is sung by a children’s choir and while the song is being play, there is a voice that says “take them while they are young …” This is a clear allusion to imposing on them a belief that will last a lifetime. A program, whatever it may be, in a child, will be a determining factor for life if it is not changed.

Her husband, Juan Domingo Perón, in an political speech said, I won the first election with men, the second with women (since the female vote was enabled), but the most interesting thing was that he said ‘the next one will be with young people ‘. His prediction was fulfilled when his party returned to power in 1973. The children of the 50s were already of voting age in the 70s.

The article does not analyze the political aspect in any way, but shows with concrete examples what has happened around the world since time immemorial. Certain acts of government aim at programming and crowd control, applied for the moment or with the future in mind.

A belief is something that we have incorporated, that we may or may not know where it comes from, but sets the conditions on how we act on a day-to-day basis. We can have the same believe as our parents, relatives, teachers, politicians, religious leaders, etc. Beliefs come from information we receive from our environment. We will never be able to believe in something we do not know.

Every day we accept or reject something automatically, instinctively, but what many do not understand is that our actions are the consequences of a base of beliefs, tastes and other parameters, which are processed in our brain at an incredible speed, and we act, based on the result obtained from that processing.

A simple example. Let’s make coffee. What do we do? We look for coffee, if the coffee is ground, we look for the coffee maker, and if it is instant, we look for a cup to put it in. Then the water follows, if we use the coffee maker we put the water in and turn it on, if it is instant coffee we heat the water. All these actions are been processed in our brain at an incredible speed, while we are watching TV or talking to someone. We do not even realize the processing speed we have.

Everything related to making coffee could be analyzed as long as we have learned it in some way before. What we learned, which can often be identified as ‘experience’, came about because we either read it, someone showed us how to do it, we watched a video, etc. That information that we obtained is ‘stored’ in our brain, which will be used in the future when necessary.

Something as simple as making coffee can be compared to everything we do every day in our lives. The more we incorporate knowledge, the easier it will be for us to process information and make our decisions. A decision made based on insufficient information will most likely not have the expected result.

As beings that have super processing powers, we are born with a base operating system, and from gestation on, we begin our ‘programming’, which will continue for the rest of our lives. It never ends. You can always learn something new or unlearn something that does not serve you.

Our DNA, which contains the hereditary information, and our birth chart, provide basic information of our potentials and our critical areas with which we come into this world. As we develop, our environment will begin to shape our basic belief system. These beliefs are nothing more than data loaded into our brain, and the information stored will be used to determine our thoughts, feelings, relationships, actions and the rest.

To better understand this part, let’s look at the following. We all believe that if we spend a long period in freezing temperatures we die of hypothermia, it is general knowledge, but there are other possibilities. If that definition were absolute true that one dies of hypothermia under certain conditions, how can we explain that a monk in Tibet, meditates for hours, in the open with freezing temperatures and this does not affect him. His body is the same as the rest of humans. The same can be said, for people who go without food or water for a longer time than the body can theoretically endure, and do not die. The same for someone who manages to stop his heart and start it again at will. This is not science fiction, it’s real. Depending on your belief system, it may not be possible.

This out of the normal can be explained, if we deviate from ‘our beliefs system’, which limits our vision of the world. In the same way that I can believe in something, I can stop believing, in the same way that I can learn, I can unlearn. How many times have we believed in something (about a person, a government, an institution, among others), which we defended with teeth and nails, and after been faced with new information we had to change our mind.

This simple example shows that our beliefs can change. All our actions work based on information that we have, which could be modified.

The process of our programming is slow, sometimes subliminal, and to be able to make changes to it, not only it takes time but also the use of certain methodology. The only difference in this process has been with people who had near-death experiences. There are a large number of cases, there are books written, where a person after going through one of these experiences completely changes its life’s style. We can say that there was a reset on its programming do to this experience. The information from which function before was deleted or deactivated.

Every time someone says, “I am like this,” what is the person saying? It’s just saying that the response is based on the programming contained. However, this programming is not something that is set in stone, although most people think it is. In the same way that an electronic device receives an update from its operating system, we have the ability to update ourselves.

What we have learned in the past conditions our present moment in some way. If we are aware of this, we can change what does not serve our purpose and replace it with something that improves our quality of life.

In our natal chart, we can identify conditioning areas as well as our potentials. We are born with certain characteristics. A phone may come with a certain memory capacity that cannot be expanded, but in the case of human beings, there are no limits, everything can be changed. We have the free will to do it.

Our potentials determined by the natal chart can be maximized and there is no limit, in the same way that our conditioning factors can be eliminated or minimized. By working on these two aspects, we can optimize our functioning and our life experience to its best.

Similar to our DNA, which can bring vulnerabilities to certain diseases, if we know what they are, following an adequate diet and an orderly life in the challenging aspects, we can minimize the activation of these conditions and lead a healthy life.

Each country establishes its education plan and change them according to who is in the government or ideology of the moment. While we can criticize both the government and educators, keep in mind that they themselves are part of the system just as we are. The only thing we have to think about is who is behind a certain education plan; usually it is not the same people who presents it.

Children spend more time in school than with their parents until they finish their basic studies as teenagers. Their ‘programming’ comes from someone with whom we may or may not share its values, but there are not many alternatives, it is a closed system. If we add to education, the determining factor of fashions, marketing, social media and others, we can see that we are entering a field where parents have very little control over the “programming” of their children. They are being programmed from somewhere else.

The consequence of ‘programming’ under the current technological society, affecting especially the children and adolescents, to a level that surpasses without comparison any previously known era. This occurs because the direct connection that exists between digital platforms and the human being (through video games, social media, instant information globally and the rest), creates a subliminal programming, which previously could only be achieved through reading, radio or television. Before massive technology was available, the periods were limited to certain times of the day; but now every child, adolescent and adult has a device in their hand most of the day when they are not sleeping. Not only that, communication is personal and direct between the device and the person, it does not require an intermediary or schedule. It is available 24 hours a day.

One can speculate that, if you could ‘program’ people in the years when technology was almost non-existent, what can happen today with the level of penetration that exists which is control by a tiny group of corporations that run the everyday of the world, working together with governments.

What would have to happen to change the current reality in which we live? Would it be necessary, like the cases mentioned before, to suffer a near-death event at a global scale to reset our programming?

With astrology, we can see that we are in a process of great change that began in 2008. In 2020, this process accelerated and is far from being over; on the contrary, from December 2020 onward this will take on another dimension.

Mass programming was short-lived in the past and its consequences were not the best for society or the world. This current attempt to globally massify our programming with the sole fact of generating profits on one hand, and lowering our level of human and personal development on the other, cannot guarantee us a happy conclusion in this movie. This type of action does not work in the long term, simply because it has no a valid purpose. If the experiences of the past at a country level led to major crises and suffering, what can be expected of something that is happening at a global scale.

For those who do not see it, from the astrology point of view, we can say that what is coming will be very hard. For those who understand it, they will surely be thinking of reducing the use, or directly disconnecting from the telephone, social media and TV, in order to start working on their ‘deprogramming’.

We are still on time to do it.

Astrological evaluation – Spanish Flu and Covid-19

We posted an astrological analysis in January 2020 mentioning the similar aspects between the called Spanish Flu of 1918 and the Corona virus; when it was not yet declared pandemic by the OMS. There were similar aspects between the lunar eclipse of June 24th, 1918 and the one on January 10th, 2020. In addition, we mentioned that the eclipse of 2020 was stronger from the astrological point of view.

In this article, we are showing the trend followed by the Spanish flu and the planetary transits between 1918 and 1919 and the current transits for 2020 and beginning of 2021.

Besides the energies generated by the lunar eclipse of June 1918, there were not many hard aspects to point out. The opposition from Saturn to Uranus between the months of October and January were the worst part. Jupiter trine Pluto, and Jupiter conjunct Pluto, generated positives energies but they were short cycles.

Transits 1918 BW

Analyzing year 2020, we have a complete different picture.

The lunar eclipse triggered the event on January 10, but as shown on the chart below, there are many additional hard aspects during the year that complicates matters.
Transits 2020 BW
Jupiter is in conjunction with Pluto from April until October, similar to the aspect that we had in August 1918; but in 2020 the period is longer. This can be seen as a period when authorities are using all power available to fight the situation.
In addition, Jupiter sextile Neptune, talks about trying to find a cure or a vaccine for the virus. This period goes from February until October.

As shown in the graphic, by middle of August the actual trend of cases is going down, and we expect this trend to continue down, because of both Jupiter’s cycles been on the positive side.
However, once these both transits are gone, hard aspects enter into play. There is a solar eclipse in December that brings out Neptune’s dark side. Neptune hard aspect, talks about sickness hard to pinpoint, deception or under handle dealings. One week later of the eclipse, we have Jupiter and Saturn’s conjunction at 0 degree of Aquarius. By this planetary aspect, known as the great conjunction, the dark aspect of Aquarius is activated. We can define this aspect as “escape from reality”.

Jupiter squaring Uranus in January 2021 is a hard aspect that could have its positive side. For example discovering a cure for the virus, or a vaccine. But, since at that time will be already active February’s transit of Saturn square Uranus, and having the energies of December eclipse active; either truth comes out that everything is a lie, that there are many bad side effects to the remedies applied, that everything is a big scheme, or a new virus shows up.

From December 2020 and during 2021 Q1, we can expect things to get a little crazy.

From the astrological point of view, there is no comparison at the energy level between the Spanish Flu and the current pandemic. In 2020, we are under very hard planetary aspects, something that did not happen in 1918. In just few months, we will be able to see the results.

Elevation of Consciousness

Seven months ago we published an article called “Universe, Solar System and Astrology”, and also one related called, “About Astrology”. For those who have not seen them, I suggest you do, since they provide an inside to what follows.

Although someone may question what the functioning of the human being and the universe has to do with astrology, we must make clear that the understanding of how these works, is the basis and the core of astrology.
Those who consider that astrology is a matter of sorcerers or esotericism, I ask you to reconsider your ideas. Meteorology’s forecasts are not very different in its essence. The Egyptians related the floods of the Nile river according to the movements of the Syrian star. Galileo, Torricelli, Pascal and Descartes, just to mention some well-known names, did their research related to variations in atmospheric conditions, but it was not until the early 1900s, when meteorology was consolidated as such, and came to be managed by the military, since it was considered classified information, very valuable in military campaigns.
Astrology, for its part, although it is recorded that it has existed for 4,000 years, is in question its “scientific” validity today, beyond the proven evidence available.

In the article presented months ago, we talked about the similarity of the functioning of the universe and the human body, given the information obtained by the space probes sent out of our solar system. In this opportunity, we are going to address the place of the human being in the universe.

Without going into the religious aspect, the vast majority of people believe that there is an existence after death, that there is a purpose in things, and that both we and the vastness of the universe, are not just the product of a “cosmic accident”.
If you are one of the people who think that life is getting up every day, take breakfast, go to work, have lunch, watch Netflix and go to sleep, to start the same cycle again the next day, I suggest you not continue. You will not be interested in the subject.

On the other hand, if you are part of the rest that “thinks” that there is something more to life than what we can see, touch and taste; this article may interest you. What is proposed will not reveal anything new, but will put into context certain topics that today, due to the level of information we handle, can be understood. Fifty years ago, this information was limited only to a smaller group of free thinkers.

From the explanations in the aforementioned articles, it is clear that “astrology” is to be used only on planet earth. Although each planet, the Moon or asteroid in the solar system has its “particular characteristic” given its energy, this does not mean that there cannot be another astrology based on Mars, Venus or Jupiter, as to mention other planets, as well as in any other solar system in the universe. We know that M-type planets are those that, due to their characteristics, could host human life, and hundreds, if not thousands, have been found, but it must be understood that everything is relative. Depending on where the planet is located, and to the system that it belongs to, it will depend the influence it receives.
For astrology, this concept is clear at earth’s level, for what is called ‘Solar Return’. This is the chart that shows how energies will be present during the solar year depending on where the birthday happens. Everything is relative, in this particular case we are referring to a place on earth.

Let’s put the human being in perspective with the earth and the universe.
If an astronaut after being on the space station for a few months needs months of treatment and exercises to return to having the same bone and muscle structure, which was lost while in space, what will happen to a human being inhabiting the planet Mars, for example.
The trip to Mars could take between 6 and 9 months depending on when the trip begins. After this period, in what physical conditions would the astronaut arrive? Suppose that mentally everything works properly, what would happen to the physical part of the astronaut? Besides the physical deterioration to the person given the duration of the journey through space, from the astrological point of view, there will be no reference.
Being on Mars, astrology should be Mars centered and Earth would become a planet along with the others. The Earth’s moon would cease to have an influence on the human body, which we know regulates different systems of the body, and especially in women, the hormonal cycle for procreation. How would the physical cycles of the human body be affected by the new planetary influence? Most probably will start working based on Mars’s moons.

Being able to travel to the stars has always been something that has captured the imagination of humanity, and has inspired Hollywood in countless series and movies on the subject.
From Star Trek, trips to the Moon, Mars and other planets, to Interstellar, where the possibility of a parallel reality is presented.

Although we perceive time as linear, it is actually circular. Astrology takes note of this through the cycles of each of the celestial bodies that go from 28 days and hours with the Moon, to more than 140 years with Pluto. Each cycle has a “purpose”, not like the mouse running on a wheel where it turns and turns, and is always in the same place.
The cycles measured by astrology never repeat in exact position considering all the heavenly bodies. The great conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn that will occur in December 2020, is given to one degree of orb, while the similar previous one occurred in the 1600s, to two degrees of orb, but with the other celestial bodies in different positions. This gives us a clear idea of the complexity of the things that influence us on a daily basis, since each cycle never will be exactly as the previous one.

This means that although the cycles are repeated, they never occur with the same astrological characteristics, and if we add to this, that the person’s state and development between one cycle and the next changes; regardless of whether the cycle could be similar, the person is not. We are considering that everything happens at Earth’s level.
In the movie Interstellar, the protagonist travels through a wormhole and into another dimension of time. While days pass for him, years have passed on earth, to the point that when he can return, he finds his daughter on her deathbed, older than what his mother could be.

Here we pause, since we are going to enter the second main topic, and that is not easy to explain.

Astrology aims to help humans “to evolve” on this plane. It is a tool; it is a GPS of life if you want to see it that way. The question is for what?
Let us start with the harsh reality that we are born and die alone. In other words, there may have been many people around the mother at the time of birth, but the one who was born did not share his birth experience with those present, they only witnessed the event. The same happens with the moment of death, people who will witness the event can surround you, but the person who departs, goes alone. We are unique and independent beings in this regard.

From birth to death, astrology marks an evolutionary path that will be marked by different energies that are manifested by the celestial aspects in regards to the natal chart, and the person will have the possibility to act as he/she pleases in each of those moments. That is, if a piece of cake is on the table, it is their decision that determines whether to eat it or not. This is the case with every action taken during our lifetime, from the time we have consciousness to death.

And what happens after death?
There is enough information available about near-death experiences and what happened, as well as communications with other entities or types of energies that may or may not have been on the earth plane. The Catholic Church and other religions speak of heavenly hierarchies. Jesus is the son of God, and even in that, there is a hierarchy or level; but what does it means?
It just represents that there are different levels of evolved consciousness at the earth level, as well as at levels that we do not perceive with our five senses. We have to remember that we are talking about the universe; we have to put aside our ego in order to understand its immensity and complexity.

The film Interstellar, which is based on known scientific information, when posing the time reality that exists between the earth plane and other planes, shows clearly that the “universal” times are not the same as the earthly times. Everything is relative to something, and functions based on this relationship. At this point we return to the paradox that occurs with space travel and its consequences.

Going back to astrology and our application, we empirically know that time on earth is limited by two parallels which are birth and death. It has to be clear that we are on this plane to evolve, and that means experiencing life and making the best decisions in our actions both towards ourselves and towards others. The “others” not only refers to people, but everything around us. While this may sound like utopian thinking, it is a fact, and is the basis to what we call evolution. We are talking about evolution of consciousness.
All the feelings we generate are energy (which can be measure), just like the energies generated by the celestial stars (NASA compile the frequency of each planet) and the aspects with our natal chart (energy relationship). The first objective of our evolution path is to understand and manage our feelings (energy put out).

There are both positive and negative feelings. In general, negative feelings are those that tend to last longer. Speaking of time, doesn’t it seem that time goes faster when you are having fun, and that time stops or goes slower when you are not comfortable or having problems? As we know, time is the same, and then, why that happens?

Looks like our emotions and feelings have something to do on how we perceive time.

The main effort when working on one’s evolution has to be put on the management of our feelings. Not to the point of becoming an automaton, but by having control both on the moments of euphoria as well as those of sorrow. Astrology can anticipate when a period of low energy vibration is coming, and this provides and opportunity for better “managing” that energy. We are beings with a high level of consciousness, but this natural state when we are born can be developed or left in its raw state; the key is to develop it in the best possible way during our life time.
This development can only be achieved with practice, with small exercises and by being constant throughout life. As we perfect our methods, most of the time based on trial and error, the road will became easier. There is no magic solution to evolve our consciousness on this plane.

As we evolve, time will no longer be a factor in our life. While this sounds strange, it is just that. When certain level of evolution has been reached, time is no longer seen as a dominant factor in life. It is no longer a conditioning factor.
Managing our feelings leads to detachment from things that condition us, which prevent the progress in our personal development. A person is not its possessions, how it looks and the rest, each of us is much more than that, although we are indoctrinated that we are valued based on our material aspects and possessions.

If we think that as a specie we are going to be successful by being able to live on another planet or solar system, that we are going to excel simply by traveling to space, we should stop and take a look at things from another perspective.
If we did not develop ourselves and our civilization to certain level of consciousness before we take our civilization to another planet, we will carry with us the same problems that we have today on earth.

What do you think of the level of consciousness of the organizations or people who are taking the lead on space exploration at this time? If we have to look for other worlds because we have made a dump of ours, with that same level of consciousness, we will repeat the same mistake wherever we go. It is not a matter of a place, it is a matter of consciousness.

The universe is perfect, including the laws that govern it. In the same way that our existence can be compromised on earth for having surpassed all the coherence parameters that exist, in the same way, any extra-terrestrial adventure will fail.
The only solution to the present dilemma is not to look for a solution to our problems by moving out of where we are, but by working toward solving all the problems that we have created. We got here by adopting a frivolous ego centrism and devoid of any ethical and moral value in our actions, both at the personal, and/or global levels.

Astrology pointed out that the present global crisis was going to happen, let us think outside the box for a minute. Can anybody in their right mind think that we can solve our problems using the same structures and tools that got us here in the first place?

Lets think again, lets think a solution outside de box.

Great conjunction Jupiter and Saturn next to the solstice of December 2020

Astronomy defines as the Great Conjunction, the closest approximation seen from Earth of the planets Jupiter and Saturn. This Great Conjunction occurs approximately every 20 years, and the next one will occur on December 21, 2020. This conjunction in particular has some additional aspects, which we are going to analyze from an astrological point of view, given the following considerations.

– The conjunction occurs at 0.1 degree of separation, which is not common. The
previous one with similar characteristics occurred on July 16, 1623, that is
to say 397 years ago. This one happened at 0.2 degree.
– The date coincides with the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere and
summer’s in the southern hemisphere
– It happens at 0 degree and minutes of the sign of Aquarius
– Mars is square to Pluto with a 0-degree orb and minutes
– Jupiter and Saturn conjoint Pluto with an orb of 6 degrees and minutes

Like eclipses, when an astrological event occurs within the first or last degree of the zodiacal sign, it becomes more relevant, since its energy is magnified.
The articles presented from August 2019 to date, are a good basis to understand how future events can unfold. We are used to analyzing any event at the moment, and most of the time we do not take into account the previous circumstances to the event. Things should always be analyzed in context, including recent history, as well as previous similar cycles. This will allow getting a full picture on how we arrived to any given moment, and from there, see what to expect for the nearest future. As we always mention, it is not the last drink that gets you drunk, but the sum of everything that was previously drank.

A week before the solstice, a Solar eclipse at 23 degrees and minutes of Sagittarius will happen. While Jupiter and Saturn are not part of this particular eclipse, the Sun, the Moon, and Mercury square Neptune, which are an important aspects to consider.
The eclipses of the Sun are activators of external energies, while those of the Moon influence and triggers internal processes. All eclipses influence in different ways people, as well as institutions or countries.
Mercury governs communications, business, and travel, while Neptune can create either enlightenment or disappointment, and is associated with rare illness, plagues and shady deals, just to mention some characteristics, that can be identified with current global events.

December’s eclipse will have its main shadow over Chile and Argentina. It is said, that where the shadow of the eclipse passes, the greatest energy of the eclipse is received, beyond having a global reach.
The number of events listed will occur in a short period of time. If we compare this information with the analysis made regarding the eclipse of January 10, in addition to the planetary transits at the beginning of the year; we can expect that by the end of the year the situation will worsen.

Returning to the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, Jupiter is the planet of expansion and growth, while Saturn is the planet of restriction and heavy load. Given that the conjunction happens at 0 degree of the sign of Aquarius, we can speculate that this will bring to light the worst characteristic of this zodiacal sign.
The negative side of Aquarius if we define it in one sentence is: “Living outside of reality”.
What does this mean? That in any complicated situation, one abstracts from the surrounding reality, and creates a “virtual reality”, which is far from what is really happening.
Jupiter’s energy in this sign can be seen as an avenue for creating a more just, balanced and harmonious world, both from a human point of view, as well as from the environment, artistic and education’s point of view. By been in the position that it is, these objectives are most likely to be attempted but, any action will not be happening at the right time, or will fail by not having the necessary resources, or by not been able to reach the goals.
Saturn on the other hand, which presents the raw side of reality, noting responsibility in acts, ideas and objectives, by ruling the world organizations and governments, will strain all structures, responsive mechanism and resources, creating a situation where nobody wins.
There may be plans put in place to improve things, but these plans collide with the harsh reality, resulting in more problems than if nothing had been attempted. The saying, “Dam if you do it, and dam if you don’t” fits perfect for the situation we are describing.
Regarding Neptune, which squares the Moon and the Sun in the solar eclipse, it could signal the mutations of the current virus, or a new virus, or simply a vaccine that will not work.
Mercury which is in similar aspect, could signal that restrictions on travel, commerce and communication are going to be intensified.
Mars is in Aries squaring Pluto in Capricorn, and this energy can be manifested in wars, or civil unrest. This is not an energy for negotiations, or to solve problems by talking. A lot of heavy energy and alter egos are at full capacity.
The effect of the eclipse could lasts up to 6 months; the gran conjunction happening at the solstice and in the position mentioned, does not forecast an improvement of the current situation at middle of 2020. Just prepare yourself because looks like the situation is not going to improve, at list for the first part of 2021.
