The point I am trying to make is that believing in Mystery isn’t necessarily a thing of primitive ignorant people, but existing all around us, all the time, and it deserves our respect or at least, our acknowledgement.
In fact, living with it is inevitable, so why fight it, pretend that is not there or try to explain it all?
Astrology is one of such mysteries that we Astrologers try to decipher but with utmost respect to its mysteriousness.
In today’s talk we will be able to journey through some of Astrology’s mysteries, to try to make some sense of the delights of its mythological meaning and its relation to everyday, life to find out a way of living with it in a creative way, as a mean of enriching our quotidian experiences and make the most of it.
Thomas Moore says :
“Traditional Astrology, East and West, is an intricate mythology of the soul, requiring a wealth of information and skill for its practice and far deeper and more solidly based than superstition in its power to animate the imagination.”
He goes on saying:
“Astrology is a form of imagination emerging from nature and having a direct relevance for everyday life. It’s an applied poetics, a vision of life on earth stimulated by movements in the heavens, which can take us into areas of self-reflection as no other system of symbols and images can. Astrology, based on one of the most fundamental of human experiences – the feeling of wonder occasioned by celestial movements – is among the few self contained symbols systems that can help make sense out of the chaos of life. When we feel confused and lost, we can use the sky for guidance.”
