The Unified Astrology Talk


The Unified Astrology Talk

To me I feel very attracted to string theory and I feel that at this time we are evoking a search for a unified theory of Science. At the same time I have enough Information to stretch out a unified theory of Astrology which I will publish in about 6 months give or take 2 in either direction. This way people can interact with it adding and subtracting information to it.

1- The Unified Astrology Theory- History and Methods (ill add dates and check the dates when I type up the talk)

-  Sort sided outline of where I am going.. This will be a really quick sketch of what I am planning and some authors/astrologers I will be refrencing. This is will be fairly fast and rough not to mention somewhat dry – so i apologize beforehand. The timeline is so you can get an idea of the dates. 

 

A- It starts with Nick Campion and his amazing research. like UAC says “He takes us back to a world of magic and mystery. It examines the origins of astrology in both the prehistoric and ancient worlds, in rock art and lunar calendars, and considers resulting theories of its nature and practice in the modern world: He tangles with the question is it the result of the desire for religious engagement with the sky, or the need for scientific explanations of natural cycles.  (100,000 – 3000 BCE)

B-mesopotamia (5000BCE-1000BCE) This is a wonderful talk by Maria Mateus (http://www.astrocollege.org/academic/staff.cgi?STAFF=mariamateus)

basically the (person) ancient Mesopotamians created our astrological house system. It is uncanny and way too similar for just a coincidence**. besides that they did not have a difference between cause and effect. Their time was eternally happening and was not  a separate phenom. Think aboriginities concept of time as its foreign to us in our age. they also spoke phonetically so when they said error and air they inferred jokes akin to  “I have an error” “the air outside” then the joke that is made through the reference is “the air is my error because its an error of reality (living in an illusion). So keep this in  mind as we harken back to Maria Mateus lecture of the epic of Gilgamesh as the foundation of our current house system. Each part of the epic of Gilgamesh is in accordance to a house.There are 12 different houses in astrology. Like Gilgamesh our house system is broken into two parts the internal part and the external experience. the lower half and the upper half. The lower half – the 1st 6- is the happier tales of Gilgamesh and the top part is the sadder parts. and the transfer towards immorality is the 12th house to the 1st house. the unraveling of your identity and your personal myth towards a new beginning.


C- china, india (1000 BCE to now although they don’t understand the same methodologies of their elders im fairly sure of that) There was trading and germination going on. you see this through Buddhism, and how Hindu practices germinated into Daoism and vice versa. The key words like breathing began to morph together due to improper translation and excitement about new techniques like modern day Yoga. You see trading going from china to Japan and from Korea to Japan and all to India and Persia. Hard to pinpoint exact times,honestly. Lots of vedic astrologers im sure could be here (Im a little weak here honestly. I just need a little researching and ill find some good stuff. Anyone want to help here?)

D- Persia (1000BCE- 600 BCEto current) Egyptian Astrology is probally created during this time also. I don’t think many Persians practice the traditional methods. If They do I am not aware of it. A lot of these ancient Astrolgers are becoming available to western astrologers through the amazing researcher Benjamin Dykes (http://www.bendykes.com/). Benjamin Dykes is and has translated a lot of the Persian Astrologers and is currently working on translating even more. Some of the Arab and Persian Astrologers that have been translated were translated incorrectly because the person who was translating it didn’t understand Astrology and its lingo and thought the lingo was gobbly gook, or because the translator had a bias based on their religion or whatever.

E- Hellenistic – 400BCE – (600 AD) although since 600 BCE the trading through the silk road was going on so its hard to pinpoint. A forfront researcher is Chris Brennan (http://www.chrisbrennanastrologer.com/)  and his Denver posse. also Doug Noblehorse (http://www.azastrologers.org/Articles/ESDN.htm) is doing some interesting work into lots. These two are bridging the gaps between Persian Astrology and Hellinistic Astrology coming from the Early greeks, whom more than likely learned it from the Persians. At least that is my take.

F- Deborah Holding (http://www.skyscript.co.uk/) (600AD to 1900s) She does anamazing job bridging the time and doing impecable research into key Astrologers like alan Leo and others. She also takes Horary Astrology through large patches of history.

G- Renaissance revival (1700 to 1800s – Kabbalah and Taro to hide the system in plain sight so it wasn’t burned)

Steffan Vanel ( http://www.spiritualcompany.com/) and modern/ traditional Alchelmy came through here too.

H- Astrology to America ( 1780- 1900s) Christopher Renstrom (http://rulingplanets.com/about-christopher)

I- Modern revival (1970’s to current) The psychological astrology including  Liz Green http://www.astrology.co.uk/Liz.htm and  Dane Rudhyar (http://www.khaldea.com/rudhyar/) and the newly formed Uranian Astrogoly carried on by Gary Christen (http://alabe.com/photogal.html)

J- As a sidenote- I will add a section that has African Astrology, South and North Americian Astrology: Mayan, Aztec, Incian, Native Americian Astrolgoy. I will also have a section that touches on Celtic and Irish Astrology. I think they are seperate phenomena, because they were not really trading with the Asian/ European that most of the talk is on. However I think a link can be made between South and North American traditions. I know that the Hopi (who are a bunch of city states and not an Unified Nation) have stories where they came North from their homelands. Some modern Hopi believe that they came from the Aztec and Mayan cultures when they were at its height before they started eating each other. I think a link can be made by how both systems of star gazing are based on large cycles. I think the Celtic and African Astrology developed by themselves. I can be totally wrong about this.

2-Combining Alchemy and Astrology through this time line with the assumption that they were the same concept under the Mesopotamians. We also see this mirrored in the combining of Vedic astrology (which is more akin to alchemy) and the Hellenistic tradition which is more similar to modern astrology. The combination comes through the Benjamin Dykes research into Persian Astrology; particularly their work on Lots as each lot works like the ascended and gets its own 30 degree window, and begins a 30 degree split into the chart. When you get 90 lots or 180 lots then you are doing what vedics are doing when they break up a house into 2-18 sections. Persians also have lords and rulers that do not move that are based on fixed degrees in the chart. They are constant. Vedic has lords and rulers and they have fixed rulers that do not move. There is an amazing lady Anne Beversdorf (http://www.stariel.com/) who is a vedic astrologer who is combining lots of techniques in a very simple way.


3-Modern Research (The Gators) and modern techniques (Uranian school of Astrology who using their trans Neptunian planets mapped out the Kuiper Belt. Freaking amazing.)

The Gators are an astrological research group. One of the gators Alphee Lavoie (www.alphee.com) lived in Connecticut and how astrologers and psychologists were both arrested in the 1970s for practicing occult information. Psychologist were smart and used data to validate their study creating such advanced tools as the roschak and the MMPI. The MMPI to my knowledge is a test of like 500 questions where you individually are referenced to a huge pool (which is always growing) of other candidates and how they filled out the MMPI. So bipolar people fill it out similarly. They basically are a set of things 15-40  or so that if you have them you are 100% more likely than the average person to be bi-polor, schizophrenic, or whatever. This is exactly what the gators are doing. They are inferring 15 to 100 things like moon square mars, sun sextile the ascendent, and such and if you have 15 of the you are 100% likely to be a millionaire, stripper, artist, killer, or what have you. They are doing actual data. their people load is quite small and currently have a normal base of around 5000 or whatever. They also just choose the top 1% of artist, musicians, and so forth. They also have a graph where they compiled data and made a prediction (a month ahead i believe) where they were only off by 2-8 degrees for a 2 week period. I believe the time range is right. Regardless the graph is on their site (graph picture). So this begins our venture to bring astrology to academia and to do way more research.Also this is a way to test theories and practices of astrologers to see what actually work on a much wider scale. It is our check and balance system. Its really cool.  More on this to follow later.

The World is becoming smaller and through the shrinking of nations and boundaries we begin to understand our primal and basic roots. Astrology and Alchemy is built into us, and I aim to prove it. New Technology makes visiting the past easier and the technological advances begin to come from the past as rocket fuel to build our future. They are mutually receptive and they cannot function alone. Through the new technology like data compiling, chart calculations, Modern ephemerides, and the ability to talk to each other. Not to mention google, facebook, twitter, youtube, and video projection programs like skype and our modern phones and tablets. We also have translation programs make it easier to revisit the past and to map out the heavens in our living room and watch them move for hundreds of years going in either direction. This is crazy as most astrologers including me don’t know how to read the modern sky often cited as  the major argument made by astronomers. Not to mention that most astrologers would have a hard time creating a chart from scratch. They did it all by hand by seeing the external world move. Venus planet on the horizon for instance. simply mind blowing for me. And we treat our ancestors like they are idiots. Completely wrong if you ask me. If you read or heard that anchient people are not as smart as we are you are quite mistaken. They are brillant and in many cases way smarter than modern man. I am piggy backing on the shoulders of giants. Technology makes it possible for a unified Astrology theory to happen and it also pushes modern science past its limitations by passing the murkiness, battle arena, and limiting sphere that academia can hold. We can move around it for the first time. It can no longer treat us like step children especially since all their information came from astrologers and alchemists. Lots of scientists forget their their DNA of science comes from Astrologers and Alchemists. We are now free souls who will reinvigorate and shake up the dying Dragon that is eating its own tail. We will teach the dragon to fly again yet. I leave you with a quote from Christopher Renstrom from rulingplanets.com “The unwritten rule of Astrology is that people begin to form constellations through their collective gravity (coming together for specific reasons) (research (example Astrology Slam) paper cite). Carl Jung called them synchronicities, but we have the audacity and the ability to call it what it actually is Astrology”.
