...the living earth...


...resonating to patterns of cosmic energy...






Our solar system is resonating with gravitational forces, immersed in a hot bath of radiation, a whirlpool of particles, comets and meteorites. If you were a Trojan out there, you'ld know. Unable to determine your own fate you are dragged along, a toy in the hands of nature, with no option but to go with the flow. And miracously you survive, in actual fact, this way the chance of a collision is very small...

...in beautiful harmony...


And of course this earth that is our home, doesn't get away from this either. We hold on to the belief that we actually determine our own lives, in every detail. Sometimes it's hard to admit our life is largely formed by the many "chance" meetings we have, by delicate but effectful interferences of Fortune...

then... all is lost! i wanted to be a musician, but maybe i stand no chance against these forces! i may turn right every time and find myself up on the left path! no, not all is lost, if we can understand, even faintly, how everything is interrelated, than maybe we can benefit from this, and achieve what we wanted with less frustration and more happiness. astrology, through it's own methods, is pointing out directions.. faintly. Yes, through the smog faint stars appear at night. We have forgotten them, who remembers their names? Few people can point out the polar star, and that one is easy! In a city it is not difficult to forget, one can only see the very brightest of stars.
moony It is indeed an overwhelming sight, on a dark night, away out in the country, to see the hemisphere immersed with thousands of stars, so close, it's like you can just reach out and touch them. It's then that you can feel their powerful presence, whether you are 'into' astrology or not. In all 88 constellations, some small, some big, like a large blanket over the land. Twelve of these make out the Zodiac, the basis of astrology, each with its own virtues and character. Their light is shining on us, we can pretend not to notice, but we are being noticed....

Astrology is an old science, dating back to prehistoric times and bringing many insights that have become 'scientific' with the advent of psychology. Insights that were gathered through experience and meditation, rather than through clinic laboratory experimentation. The way astrology works is difficult to trace if you're adapted to the modern day notion of science. A notion that is not really workable for science itself. Very few scientific discoveries, if any, have been brought on by logic or deduction. The role of chance, intu´tion, is more important then science will admit. In astrology these form the backbone of understanding. Sensing is also a way of knowing, although you can't always put your finger on it.

Astrolomy is a combination of astronomy and astrology. Awareness of cosmic energies may come with nights spent under starry skies, contemplating, meditating. Learn your way around in the nightsky, and find the planets, but also calculate charts and ephemeris. Astrolomy has been with the Macintosh since 1993, and has developed into a versatile program.
