Early Origins of Astrology

Astrology, in its broadest sense, is the search for human meaning in the sky; it seeks to understand general and specific human behavior through the influence of planets and other celestial objects. It has been argued that astrology began as a study as soon as human beings made conscious attempts to measure, record, and predict seasonal changes by reference to astronomical cycles.

Early evidence of such practices appears as markings on bones and cave walls, which show that lunar cycles were being noted as early as 25,000 years ago; the first step towards recording the Moon’s influence upon tides and rivers, and towards organizing a communal calendar.[7] With the Neolithic agricultural revolution new needs were also met by increasing knowledge of constellations, whose appearances in the night-time sky change with the seasons, allowing the rising of particular star-groups to herald annual floods or seasonal activities.[8] By the 3rd millennium BC, widespread civilisations had developed sophisticated awareness of celestial cycles, and are believed to have consciously oriented their temples to create alignment with the heliacal risings of the stars

Tropical Astrology

In Second century Alexandria, the mathematician and astronomer/astrologer Ptolemy created theTropical Zodiac as opposed to the Sidereal. This played a major role in Western Astrology as we know it today. Over the past 25 years, through my study and practice as an Astrologer, the Tropical Zodiac has resonated the most in terms of use for self discovery, awareness, navigating personal relationships, and transformation. This is most likely due to the fact that it goes in line with the view that human beings are linked together in a system of correlations that relates to the developmental stages of other living things and their yearly cycle. For example, the rebirth of life each year is the Spring Equinox – Aries. Aries would then be the first sign of the Zodiac exhibiting the newness to physical life and the personality traits that come along with this phase of existence. Keeping this timeline, the following signs, Taurus, Gemini and Cancer, all represent the first phase of their respective element. Leo, Virgo, Libra, and Scorpio are the second phase of each element, and Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces are the third and final phase of each element. Getting in alignment with the natural flow of the seasons helps us to stay connected to the biggest energetic openings while understanding the best time to to take certain actions raising the probability for favorable outcomes.
