Astrology Q&A: History, Prediction, and Authenticity of Astrology

April 24th, 2017
Share Button

Question:
“I am conducting research on astrology for my 8th grade class. I am expected to interview an adult who is knowledgeable about astrology. I have 6 questions I would like to ask you if you are willing to be interviewed by me. I have included my questions below so that you know the type of information I am looking for. 

  1. Were the Armenians the first to discover astrology?
  2. What makes the earth wobble and how does it wobble? How does it change the way we see the night sky?
  3. How can we use astrology to predict events in the future?
  4. How did the ancient Greeks affect astrology?
  5. How did the early Armenians in Metsamor become so much more advanced than all the other ancient civilizations?
  6. Do you think astrology is a science or is a pseudo science?” 

Answer:
Is your assignment to write a paper on this topic and not an interview? I’ve had several of these types of requests before and when I ask for a confirmation/the teacher’s e-mail address, the student disappears and doesn’t respond.

No matter. I can be of help anyway.

  1. The Armenians may have had something to do with devising astrological signs, but it’s hard to prove. My belief is that several ancient cultures had the makings of the beginning of astrology, but astrology didn’t come together enough to be useful in recorded history until approximately the fifth century BC. Read more about that here.
  1. Regarding Earth wobbling, read about “precession” here.
  1. Astrology, at least the forms I use, can be used to predict personal fate. As for mundane events like earthquakes, economic and financial market troubles or geopolitical events, that’s much more challenging. Read more about prediction and timing of predestined events here.
  1. The ancient Greeks contributed greatly to the science of astrology. See the information linked in #1, above.
  1. You would have to supply links to sources that verify what you suggest about the early Armenians. I can’t answer that for you since it’s not directly related to my areas of expertise. However, if true, one could speculate their civilization was “seeded” by very ancient cultures that predate recorded history, such as a lost civilization unknown to (or not recognized by) mainstream scientists today.
  1. I believe astrology is a science. Note–I’m referring to ancient methodologies, not modern, trivial astrology. Read this blog post and this blog post for more information.

Good luck on your project.

Astrology Q&A: Same House Placements Equals Compatibility?

April 10th, 2017
Share Button

Question:
“In the last year, I encountered two other people who have the same house placements as I do. All three of us were born in different years, different continents, different cultures, different altitudes, one is a Cancer, the other is a Libra, and I’m Virgo. Is there any significance to this? What are the odds of someone encountering someone else with the same house placements?”  

Answer:
You mention, “people who have the same house placements,” but offer no other information. How many, and of what type? The actual house placement of a heavenly body is only one factor of many.

The odds of encountering someone with the same Sun sign placement are 1 in 12, as you may realize. There is insubstantial significance to such a connection, considering the fact that the symbolism of any given indicator is made stronger or weakened by the other hundreds of indicators.

By the way, I recommend avoiding Sun sign astrology because it’s ultimately an exercise in futility.

You would find it more worth your while to look for shared heavenly bodies in angular houses (1st, 4th, 7th, 10th), which is a prelude to identifying the most potent heavenly body (not the Ascendant ruler) in a person’s comprehensive charts.

You may also find numerology comparisons interesting. The “birthday paradox” shows there’s a 99% probability that two people will share the same month and day of birth with 57 randomly chosen people. The odds of two randomly chosen people born on the same day, month, and year are only about 1 in 28,500.

Astrology Q&A: Astrological Forecasts–Which Ones to Follow

March 27th, 2017
Share Button

Question:
“When reading or listening to astrological forecasts, how would I know whether to listen to Sun sign, Moon sign, or my Rising sign?”

Answer:
My advice is to avoid Sun sign, Moon sign, Rising sign, and other, similar astrological forecasts (“horoscopes”). They’re too general to apply to any specific person.

This type of astrology contrasts with ancient methodologies and didn’t exist before the 1900s. It’s comparable to processed junk food, which ultimately only harms you.

If the forecast is instead relaying information about what’s occurring with the Sun or Moon (quite different than standard horoscopes), for example, then that may be a little helpful because you could apply it to your natal patterns, if you’re familiar with them.

Still, hundreds of natal factors form patterns, and the Sun, Moon, and Ascendant are only a small part all the possible patterns. The symbolism of any single factor is either strengthened or mitigated by the energy of the others. Transiting Saturn in Aries, for example, may be part of a complex pattern that symbolizes unwelcome relationship challenges to one person. To the next person, it may have zero relevance.

Although you can get an idea of the cyclical nature of life by tracking basic astrology events, accurate prediction and personality assessment require a highly personalized approach.

Mercury Retrograde April 9 to May 3 2017

March 13th, 2017
Share Button

Mercury retrograde occurs soon; it’s an opportune time to observe the cyclical nature of life, and you can also mitigate the risk in your everyday life if you know what to watch out for.

The telltale signs of this astrological phenomenon typically include difficulties getting new endeavors off the ground, communication misunderstandings, and general setbacks. Perception is distorted, so be extra careful with important decisions and contracts.

Revisiting the past is common too. It’s a good time to develop new solutions to old problems of all sorts, along with finally letting go of past issues.

See this page for a thorough list of Mercury retrograde features and a general timeline.

As mentioned in the linked information above, the approximate three-week period leading up to Mercury retrograde is usually more troublesome than the actual retrograde period.

Mercury retrograde April 2017—May 2017 details:

  1. Mercury goes retrograde 4-9-2017 at 4:14 p.m. PDT, 04 degrees 50 minutes Taurus.
  2. Mercury goes direct 5-3-2017 at 9:32 a.m. PDT, 24 degrees 15 minutes Aries.

The bar graph in this blog post includes the April 2017–May 2017 Mercury retrograde period, along with other basic astrology events.

Venus Retrograde March 4 to April 15 2017

February 26th, 2017
Share Button

Look out–here comes Venus retrograde. Ill-advised love life decisions are characteristic of Venus retrograde periods.

Lovers from the past and new love interests seem appealing until after the retrograde period when you wonder what you were thinking. Be careful of hasty romantic commitments, such as reuniting with an ex, because a few months later things won’t seem as agreeable.

For those of you already in a committed relationship, you may find yourself reassessing your current partnership. It’s a good time to appraise things and make changes for the better.

As you can see in the bar graph in this blog post, Venus is retrograde from March 4, 2017 to April 15, 2017.

Although Venus retrograde is merely one indicator and it must be supported by other factors in your unique comprehensive charts to symbolize momentous difficulties, it’s a sign to be a little more cautious in your love life.

Venus retrograde lasts, on average, about 40 days, and it occurs about every 1.5 years.

Read more about the cyclical nature of life and basic astrology factors, including Venus retrograde, in this blog post.

Besides love life, the planet Venus also rules the following: women; gay men; apparel; the building trades, including design and home building; designers of all types; the arts, including dance and music; jewelry and jewelers; glamour; beauty; pleasure; indulgence; bars and drinking; games and gambling; playboys and playgirls; ladies of the evening; romantic commitments.

Read more about Venus here.

Venus retrograde is far from the worst astrological affliction, but it’s worth paying attention to. Proceed with caution in your love life to avoid unnecessary drama, and avoid dwelling on “the one that got away.” Also, avoid impulsive financial commitments related to your love life.

Solar Eclipse February 26 2017

February 13th, 2017
Share Button

A solar eclipse occurs February 26, 2017. It’s exact by degree at 6:58 a.m. PST, 08 degrees 12 minutes Pisces.

On balance, eclipses symbolize more challenge than reward, though solar eclipses are typically better than lunar. Generally, lunar eclipses symbolize endings, and solar eclipses beginnings.

How the symbolism relates to you specifically depends on the patterns in your comprehensive astrology charts. For many, this eclipse will be a non-event, but for others the eclipse and the associated patterns can signify big changes.

For everyone, about three weeks before and a few days after an eclipse, judgment tends to be distorted. Some things seem fine when they aren’t, and others are actually better than they seem.

Be careful with consequential investments, important legal contracts, and other high-risk endeavors, including those involving your physical safety.

The bar graph in this blog post includes the February 26, 2017 solar eclipse, along with other basic astrology events.

Secrecy—How to Know if You Can Trust Someone

January 29th, 2017
Share Button

“If you wish another to keep your secret, first keep it to yourself.” Seneca

Everyone has secrets, ranging from inconsequential to momentous.

Secrecy is an integral part of the human experience, largely having to do with the mostly harmless natural defense mechanism to maintain your peace of mind and save face.

For example, you don’t announce to your Facebook friends the graphic details of your most recent red-hot fling to save yourself the embarrassment, even though such posts would be exceedingly entertaining and could make you a social media star.

Sometimes you’re required to share your secrets, such as within a business or investment partnership.

Secrecy is desirable in matters of confidentiality; discretion is necessary to protect proprietary information.

Although it’s feasible extreme secrecy can be a serious liability in partnerships, keeping one’s mouth shut is generally considered advantageous. As long as the intent isn’t to deceive, and extreme withholding doesn’t infringe on trust between associates, it won’t cause problems. 

Of all the personality traits I consider in my character analyses, secrecy is one of the most fascinating for me to examine. It’s very easy for some to keep secrets, but impossible for others.

Extremes are easy to discern, particularly involving people who can’t keep it zipped even if their life depended on it.

Other than my or another professional’s analyses to warn you ahead of time, a way to know if you can trust someone is to spend a lot of time with them. Unfortunately, you open yourself up to a lot of risk in doing so.

It’s okay to keep secrets. In fact, it’s necessary in many cases, such as guarding exclusive information or protecting someone’s safety.

Make sure you avoid trusting the wrong person, but also avoid unnecessary, extreme withholding.

Lunar Eclipse February 10 2017

January 16th, 2017

A lunar eclipse occurs February 10, 2017. It’s exact by degree at 4:33 p.m. PST, 22 degrees 28 minutes Leo.

Although the date of this blog post is January 16, 2017 and the lunar eclipse is about three weeks away, three to four weeks before the eclipse and a few days after is approximately the window of time that eclipse-related issues manifest. Thus, avoid excessive risk from now until about March 1st, 2017 (solar eclipse occurs 2-26-2017).

See this blog post for more information about limiting your overall risk during an eclipse.

Perception tends to be distorted during eclipse periods, particularly during lunar eclipses. Be more cautious with consequential decisions, avoid recklessness, and remember that things may not be quite as they appear.

The bar graph in this blog post includes the February 10, 2017 lunar eclipse, along with other basic astrology events.

1-1-1 and the Occult: January 1 2017

December 28th, 2016
Share Button

January 1, 2017, or 1-1-1, is a date of uncommon occult meaning.

“Occult” simply means secret knowledge, and it’s baselessly associated with the dark side.

1-1-1 is significant due to triple number sequences having a higher than average amount of other-dimensional (the other side or unseen planes) symbolism.

Corroborating or mitigating factors symbolize the degree of high (of the Light) or low (of the darkness) vibration.

1 is derived from 2017 through fadic addition: 2+0+1+7 = 10 and 1+0 = 1. January is the first month of the year; January 1, 2017 yields 1-1-1.

The representative energy of a triple (or double) calendar date occurrence such as 12-12-12 is largely indistinguishable.

You probably won’t notice anything unusual on January 1, 2017, January 10, 2017, January 19, 2017, or January 28, 2017. All four dates yield 1-1-1.

Even so, investigating, with a trained eye, the lifetime themes of individuals born on such a date, the unique symbolism is obvious (e.g., January 1, 1936; January 1, 1945; September 1, 1954; and so on).

Multiple indicators constitute patterns epitomizing life circumstances and events in the comprehensive astrology and numerology charts. Those indicators are derived from the full birth data, including the date of birth.

Double numbers including 11, 22, 33, and so on, along with triple numbers, possess extraordinary potential, but also too much instability. Those who have these types of numbers in abundance encounter greater challenges in life than usual, though frequently rise to great heights in their respective endeavors. Consecutive numbers can be either negative or positive, based on the related patterns in the comprehensive numerology charts.

Those with the number one heavily represented in their natal and timing patterns tend to undergo distinct life circumstances, both rewarding and challenging.

The date 1-1-1 means different things to everyone since everyone’s timing is different.

Don’t worry about 1-1-1 or any other date such as 6-6-6 being a window of supernatural susceptibility. Such gateways of time are part of cyclical phenomena represented in the modern calendar, which I believe is linked to universal intelligence.
