Astrology – A Cosmic Code

Dating back to early Sumerian and Babylonian times and later in Egyptian writings, celestial symbols have been found on monuments. We read that Abraham was told by God to observe the skies and see therein the future. The number twelve figured prominently in the old writings.

It seems the information was given to Jacob about the Constellations. When Jacob was near death, he called his twelve sons to bless them and foretell their future. As told in the “Prophecy of Jacob”, he associated his oldest son Reuben with the zodiacal constellation of Aries. Back then it was the constellation of the spring equinox instead of Taurus. Simeon and Levi were lumped together as the Twins, the constellation of Gemini. Judah was compared to a Lion, which is Leo, Zebulun was called a dweller of the Seas, Aquarius the water bearer. Then Rachel’s sons .. Joseph was the Bowman of Sagittarius and Benjamin substituted for his sister Dinah, the Virgo. Gad was a Scorpio and Naphtali was a Capricorn.

The floors in the remains of the Jewish Synagogues in the Holy Land are decorated with the zodiacal circle of twelve constellations depicted by their ancient symbols. The Hebrews were familiar with the zodiac and also the association with predictions of the future, called fate. They cried Mazol-tov and still do at weddings and Ba Mitzvahs and it is thought to mean good luck, but it literally means “a good/favorable zodiacal constellation”.

In Babylonian times, a corps of astronomer-priests observed the heavens and assumed a key role in royal decisions. The fate of the King, the land, and nations were divined from the position of the planets in a particular zodiacal constellation. Records have been found of hundreds of engraved tablets revealing heavenly phenomena interpreted to foretell invasions, famines, floods, civil unrest, or long life for the King, a stable dynasty, victory in war, prosperity. They were written down on clay tablets. In all instances, Fate was deemed to be indicated by the heavens.

Today’s astrology roots go back well beyond the Babylonians, the Chaldeans of Greek reports. Fate and the Zodiac began at least when the calendar began, in Nippur in 3760 B.C. which is when the Jewish calendar began. Also recorded in the Egyptian “Book of the Dead”, is the fact that one’s hope for an eternal afterlife depends on the weighing of the heart on the Day of Judgment. At the time of the Exodus, the first constellation, that of the spring equinox was Aries, not Taurus. Also, in the heavens Fate had twelve stations.

Dividing the heavens into twelve parts is a highly sophisticated astronomy, one so advanced that man by himself, could not have known it when this division of the celestial circle began. How could the Sumerians have known all that they did? They themselves provided the answer. “All that we know was taught to us by the Anunnaki” (Those who from heaven to earth came). It is known from these early writings that they came from another planet with a vast orbital period and a longevity in which one year encompassed 3,600 of Earth years. They therefore had no difficulty discerning Precession of the Equinoxes and devising the twelve part zodiac.

Ancient Science and Religion texts which were also passed on in other tongues, including the biblical Hebrew have considered the Sumerian tales of the Anunnaki of the ancient gods to be Mythology. Our knowledge of the Greek Mythology and that of all the nations stemmed from the original Sumerian beliefs and texts. The Sumerians told that there was a time before civilized man was on earth, when animals were wild and crops not yet cultivated, when there arrived on Earth a group of fifty Anunnaki who journeyed from their home planet Nibiru, meaning ‘the planet of crossing’ and reaching earth they splashed down in the waters of the Persian Gulf. They found fish and fowl to eat and then began to make bricks from the clay of the soil and established the first-ever settlement on earth by extraterrestrials.

The full, detailed story is told in a series of books called “The Earth Chronicles” by Zecharia Sitchin. His first book was “The Twelfth Planet”.
I will write more about this in another Blog.

I have found this information to be totally fascinating and much of it correlates with our Biblical Old Testament, but in so much more detail.

No Time of Birth – Rectification

Many people would like to have their Birth Chart (Natal Chart) cast, but don’t know what time time they were born.

astrol-wheel-for-1-16-17

You have several options.

We can cast a Solar Chart, where we place your sun sign on the Ascendant (cusp of the first house) and then place all the other planets in their Houses depending on their degrees.  This does not give as much information as a chart cast knowing the birth time, and the sign Rising on the Ascendant at the moment of birth.  You won’t get to know your Rising Sign or timing of upcoming events in your Transits.  You will get all the rest, each planet and the aspects they make with each other.

The second option is if we can rectify your chart.  If you can give the Astrologer a window of about 2 or 3 hours on the day you were born, we will ask you some questions about past events.  Major events occur when major planets cross the 4 angles of your chart, that is House 1, 4, 7 or 10.  With enough information from the client, we can count the age/degrees from the event to an angle and ascertain your birth time, thereby finding out your Ascendant, which is  also called your Rising Sign.

The third option is to contact the Bureau of Vital Statistics in your birth town, where all birth times are recorded.

We would love to work with you in getting your chart done, so you can have a better understanding of the person that you are!

FAREWELL TO NOEL TYL

I just learned of the passing of Noel Tyl, a very talented and wonderful Astrologer.  Noel left us on December 31, 2019.  He was 83 years old and had retired a few years ago.

This news was very sad for me.  I met Noel when we both lived in Fountain Hills, Arizona.  He called me after moving into town and reading the local newspaper.  He found my monthly Astrology column, read it and called me.  He invited me to his home so we could meet and discuss our favorite topic.  We met and while chatting, he autographed five of his books and gave them to me.  We had a lovely meeting that day. 

We kept in touch and when I attended one of his lectures, he called me out in the audience with a lovely compliment.  During this time, I asked him if he was teaching.  He suggested that I gather four friends and he would teach us his advanced Astrology over a six week period.  We met at his kitchen table weekly and learned so much from him!  This was actually the beginning of his Master Course in Astrology that he later offered on his website.  He perfected that course on us!

When we completed his course, Noel treated us to a special luncheon at his house, making three of his favorite Italian meals for us.  On another occasion, he and his wife had dinner with us at our home and we had such a great time with them.

Some less-known facts about Noel are that he was an opera singer in Europe and the USA in his younger days.  He loved to cook and even wrote and published a cookbook!  He had a Cancer Ascendant and with my Sun sign being Cancerian, we connected well. 

Noel was very special and he has left us a wealth of knowledge in all the many books he has written on Astrology.  I use his book, “Synthesis and Counseling in Astrology” all the time in my work. 

Farewell Noel until we continue our Astrological discussions on the other side.

The 10 of Cups

The Very Interesting Moon

I enjoy writing about the Moon. I am a Cancerian but much prefer being known as a Moonchild. The Moon is the ruler of the sign Cancer. The most viewed Blog post that I have written in the last six years was entitled “The Cancerian Moonchild”. The Statistics show it has had 1323 views, way more than anything else I have written about!

We know that the moon is now a dead body and nothing shows any life there, but was it always this way? All planets and luminaries have bodies and go through a process of birth, growth and death. The solar system is known as a body and is within a constellation.* The moon is another body within the solar system. The whole universe is one living organism with its basis being energy and motion. Planet earth is a body and within it are human bodies, mere cells in contrast to the greater whole. Just as blood and energy circulate through our bodies, so energy circulates through the universe, helping it to perform its function. Since planets have energy and motion, they can transmit this to other planets and influence them. This is how the moon influences the earth and its cells; the human beings who inhabit the earth. We pick up some of its cosmic energy, just as cosmic rays can affect life on earth.

*A constellation is a cluster of stars . The stars that appear on the ecliptical** belt have the same names, but not the same location as the twelve zodiac signs.

** The Ecliptical belt is the apparent path of the sun in the heavens. The plane of the earth’s orbit extended to meet the celestial sphere.

If the moon were to be suddenly struck out of existence, the tides would stop their rise and fall and the bodily fluids of humans would change drastically. The ebb and flow of life energy is linked to the waxing and waning of the moon. The study of human horoscopes through the years has shown that people born at the time from new to full moon have greater strength. Their blood, breath and muscles are stronger than those born when the moon is waning. Light is another source of energy and people born during the waxing moon live longer than those born during the decreasing light of the moon. It’s been shown that there is a definite link between the length of the moon cycle and the life span.

The moon is no longer just a remote romantic body in the heavens that lovers swear their love by, because we know it is there; it has been reached by humans.

Astrologers study the celestial bodies from the earth which is Geocentric. Astronomers study the solar system from a heliocentric-sun-centered point of view.

How to Get What You Want Using Astrology

night sky over city road

Do you want to know which days each month are the best ones to get your way, or at ones that could be lucky for you?    Most things will work out to your advantage if you act on these particular days.

If you know your Sun Sign, look at an Ephemeris, which you can also find on-line.  Look in any given month, for what sign the Moon is in and on which days.

Note that the exact time the Moon changed signs is different depending on where you liv).  The moon changes signs on the same day for all, but the exact time changes depending on your time zone.  They always use Greenwich Mean Time, so for example, if you happen to live on the east coast of the United States, you would subtract 5 hours from the listed time.

The moon spends about 2-1/2 days in each Zodiac sign.  for example, if your Sun sign is Aries, look to see when the moon will be in Aries.  Those will be your best days of the month.   You will want to try and plan special activities on these days if possible. 

Schedule things such as:

  • Signing contracts
  • Starting important projects
  • Finishing up deals
  • Going on job interviews or asking for a raise
  • Moving your residence
  • Applying for loans or credit cards
  • Approaching important people or beginning important conversations
  • Purchasing clothes for special occasions
  • Discussing problems with businesses that service you
  • Getting married

If you are unable to schedule these special days, at least do not pick one of the days when your Sun sign is in the Moon sign opposite.  These are the days that others are more likely to get their way and you will not.  On your low days, just lie low.  Go with the flow and rest more.  One thing that it is nice to do on one of your low days of the month, is to help others by being kind and spiritual.

Things not to schedule:

  • A house or business closing
  • Signing contracts or anything
  • Negotiating deals
  • Starting a new job
  • Making decisions
  • Starting a vacation
  • Visiting a new restaurant or hair salon

You can certainly be happy on these days, just avoid important moments if you can, because things just possibly won’t go your way.   Try it for a few months and see how it works out for you.

Zodiac Signs and their opposites, which work  both ways:

Aries               Libra

Taurus           Scorpio

Gemini           Sagittarius

Cancer           Capricorn

Leo                 Aquarius

Virgo              Pisces

Love Compatibility With Astrology

The post I wrote several years ago called “Another Chance for Love” has been read 560 times so far! That Blog was a clear winner! You can read it, if you scroll down through.

It seems most people want the chance, but then maybe another chance to find the love of their life, no matter what their age.

When I read Tarot cards, this is the most asked question of all!!

I recently learned of a new on-line dating site, where you can submit your birth data and be matched up with astrologically compatible people for dates. I believe this is the best way to find someone to spend your life with. I have been doing Compatibility charts for many years for my clients. I always suggest they might want to get the birth information on that person they are getting serious about. Take the time to find out how they will get along in all areas before life settles down into a routine and they start wishing they had known the partner better before committing.

So, if you are considering an engagement or marriage, consider having  a Compatibility Chart done first.

If you mention that you read this Blog, I will give you a 10% discount. The Menu Bar above has a Price Sheet for all my Services!

Note: I ran my guy’s birth chart before we got married. Luckily for us, we had lots of harmony. Thirty- three years later, we are still going strong! We still hold hands while out walking and we are in our 70’s now. I feel so lucky, but I was also smart enough to learn how Astrology could help.

We bought the identical card for each other for a recent Anniversary. We were amazed!
