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.
