Welcome to the weird world of astrology.
Astrology is a science and an art. It dates back 12,500 years, and probably longer than that, maybe as long as humans have looked up at the stars.
To say how astrology ‘works’ would be difficult. But we can say, it’s not through gravitational forces or mathematical equations. As far as we can tell it’s not ‘causal’ at all…at least not in a recognizable way.
It’s magic, not-magic.
Astrology’s nature is mystical. It is the realm where science meets spirituality. It is the space where the universe shows us its imbedded wonder, how things are clearly interconnected. The ‘why’ then, maybe isn’t so important.
There is no belief required for astrology. It would be like asking you to believe in gravity. Astrology has its own ground of truth, just like gravity. Throw a ball up in the air and it comes back down. You don’t have to believe in gravity to make it so. Same with Astrology. The planets indicated in your birth chart effect your life in a tangible way.
So be dazzled by it! Be in the awe and joy of not knowing, and feel the grandeur of greater design.
