From Around the World in Building the Future of Astrology

An Unspoken, Unconscious  Agreement
Still Lingers Within All Our Public Discourse;

To refuse to treat astrology as anything but a joke;  for to do otherwise is to risk scorn.  So does that make it safe to assume that living systems are 100% free 

of all lunar, solar and planetary influences?  

Does anyone really believe that? 

Instead of automatically dismissing any 'astrological effects,' 

let's get on with the postmodern, evidence-based, big data version 

of what astrologers have been trying to do all along.  

To quote Johannes Kepler in Tertius Interveniens:
“It should not be considered unbelievable that one can retrieve 
useful knowledge and sacred relics from astrological 
folly and godlessness.  
From this filthy mud one can glean even an occasional escargot, oysters or an eel for one’s nutrition; 
in this enormous heap of worm-castings, 
there are silk-worms to be found; 
and, finally, out of this foul-smelling dung-heap, 
a diligent hen can scratch up an occasional 
grain-seed, indeed, even a pearl or a gold nugget."

James Jeans in The Mysterious Universe
page 137    

"The stream of knowledge is heading towards 
non-mechanical reality; 
the Universe begins to look more like a great thought 
than like a great machine.

The last 100 years have witnessed nothing less than a 
revolutionary explosion of our knowledge and understanding 
of our universe;  and yet, we've also come to the sobering conclusion that 95% of the cosmos consists of something 
we can't even perceive yet,
 even though it's everywhere and affects everything.  

Meanwhile, a universe teeming with 
Quantum Entanglement; 'spooky action at a distance,' 
almost seems to beg the astrological question.

Nick Campion has claimed that  “...cosmologists are obliged to operate like historians, selecting the evidence which suits their theories.  Even though most cosmologists would probably insist that they are scientists, 

they are probably closer to social scientists in that they construct mathematical models but are dependent on the interpretation of evidence which may constitute but a tiny fragment of the whole.”

Perhaps this is where the exclusion of astrology has hurt us the most.  In constructing mathematical cosmologies, devoid of the dimensions of meaning and consciousness that natural astrology provides, we are only working with a tiny fragment of the whole.  To quote the eminently quotable Dr. Will Keepin, “Astrology, in a sense, is a science of the order in meaning, and of its interpenetration with the physical space-time universe.” 

This is how far we have come since the Restoration, where, in the metaphor of curved space, 

astrology, science, and religion have grown so far apart 

that they must inevitably run back into each other.  

We have all got a lot of catching up to do.
