QUESTION. How can an intelligent, educated person possibly believe astrology has any merit?
ROB BREZSNY. Many of the debunkers who’re responsible for trying to discredit astrology have done no research on the subject. They haven’t read smart astrological philosophers like Dane Rudhyar, don’t know that seminal astronomers Johannes Kepler and Galileo Galilei were skilled astrologers, and aren’t aware that eminent psychologist C.G. Jung cast horoscopes and believed that “astrology represents the summation of all the psychological knowledge of antiquity.”
The closest approach the fraudulent “skeptics” usually make to the ancient art is to glance at a tabloid horoscope column. To match their carelessness, I might make a drive-by of a strip mall and declare that the profession of architecture is shallow and debased.
That’s one reason why these ill-informed “skeptics” spread so many ignorant lies. For instance, they say that astrologers think the stars and planets emit invisible beams that affect people’s lives. The truth is, most Western astrologers don’t believe any such thing.
In his book “Cosmos and Psyche,” Richard Tarnas says the planets don’t CAUSE experiences. Rather, they are signals of the unfolding evolutionary pattern. Just as clocks tell time but don’t create it, the heavenly bodies show us the big picture but don’t make it happen.
Quoting ancient Greek philosopher Plotinus, Tarnas writes “the stars are like letters that inscribe themselves at every moment in the sky. Everything in the world is full of signs. All events are coordinated. All things depend on each other. Everything breathes together.”
sext: the air smells like honeysuckle and fresh dirt; meet me in the driveway so we can sit in absolute silence, listening to gentle echoes of the 1 a.m. train accompanied by the rapturous humming of my neighbor’s koi pond.
