Achtbare Erwähnung


Der alte, kampferprobte Tiger erschrak sich als er diesem jungen, kräftigen Tiger begegnete und wusste erst nicht, was er davon halten sollte. Er sah sich ziemlich konsterniert diesen ausgewachsenen Tiger an, der offensichtlich ziemlich nach Ziege stank und ihn auch noch anmeckerte. Doch der Ziegen Tiger war davon überhaupt nicht beeindruckt. Er bemerkte gar nicht, wie ähnlich er dem alten Tiger war. Angenervt über soviel Begriffsstutzigkeit, schleppte ihn der alte Kämpfer zurück an den Platz, wo dessen Beute immer noch lag.

Oh, Shocking, man stelle sich den Widerwillen und die Abscheu des jungen Tigers vor! Er würgte heftig und versuchte das rohe Fleisch wieder herauszuspucken, doch der alte Tiger war fest entschlossen, ihm zu zeigen, wer er wirklich war und zwang ihn, die ungewohnte Nahrung zu schlucken. Als er nun sah, wie der junge Tiger alles geschluckt hatte, schob er noch ein Stück nach — doch diesmal reagierte dieser etwas anders. Und dann streckte er sich, und zum ersten Mal in seinem jungen Leben brüllte er — das Brüllen einer Raubkatze.

Dann verschwanden die beiden im Wald. Wenn wir entdecken, das wir uns mit vielem identifiziert haben, mit dem unser innerstes Wesen nur ungenügend und meist falsch zum Ausdruck gebracht wird.

Es ist, wie wen wir schliefen und nun aufgewacht sind und uns verwundert umsehen.. Die ganze Menschheit wächst in Kulturen und Familien auf, die auf eng definierten Regeln und gelernten Werten, sowie meist nur einer rational orientierten Gesellschaft beruht — und wenn man nichts anderes kennt, wird diese Welt zur erfahrenen Realität.

Und wenn man sich selbst nicht wirklich kennt, ist man lenkbar und beeinflussbar. Grundsätzlich stimme ich persönlich den Aussagen von D. Wir sind zuerst emotionale Wesen, bevor wir mental sind — wir fühlen, bevor wir geboren sind.

Erst später erwerben wir die neurologische und mentale Grundlage, sowie die selbstreflexive Fähigkeit Emotionen zu haben, sie zu erleben, anstatt mit ihnen zu verschmelzen. Viele Fähigkeiten und spezifische, in uns allen angelegte Talente wurden von uns selbst unterdrückt und abgetrennt, um angepasst funktionieren zu können. Und damit ganz spezielle Eigenheiten, wie man auf das Leben reagieren kann. Wir lernen einfach im Laufe des Lebens Lektionen, während wir für einige Verhaltensweisen belohnt oder bestraft wurden, welches Verhalten Schmerz vermeidet.

Es ist eine lange Kausalkette von Belohnung und Bestrafung.. Jedes einzelne, unterdrückte Fühlen hat immer mit einem Persönlichkeitsanteil zu tun, der nicht leben durfte.

All der Hass in der Welt, die Wut und die Gewaltspirale, in der sich viele Menschen befinden, ist NICHT die Ursache von Kriegen — sie sind es erst zweitrangig, es sind die von allen Menschen unterdrückten Gefühle, instinktiven Kräfte und ihre angesammelten Verletzungen der diversen Persönlichkeitsanteile.

Gesellschaftssysteme unterdrücken und unterbinden kollektiv diverse Instinktkräfte, die in unserem innersten Wesen angelegt sind. Da hätten wir etwa Sexualität und Sinnlichkeit, Aggression, Emotionalität, die grundlegend verleugnet und nur in schmaler Bandbreite gelebt werden dürfen.

Raging Storm is coming. Unsere angeborenen Energiemuster zu leugnen, wird sie einfach nur stärker machen, und dann werden sie uns verfolgen. Jede Entwicklung einer menschlichen Persönlichkeit beginnt grundsätzlich mit der Prämisse, sich vor Verletzlichkeit schützen zu müssen.

Denn Verletzlichkeit wird nicht belohnt, Macht und Stärke aber schon und so verstärkt sich die mentale Fixierung. Sie verschmelzen sozusagen zu dem, was eine Persönlichkeit genannt wird. Und es steht natürlich die berechtigte Frage im Raum, ob dies überhaupt in einem Leben möglich ist.

Die Antwort dürfte davon abhängen, wieviel Vorarbeit in anderen Leben bereits gemacht wurde und mit wieviel Aufmerksamkeit und Fokus man es jetzt verfolgt. Wie auch immer, Entwicklung hört nie auf, wenn Ganzwerdung nicht jetzt möglich ist, dann eben in einem anderem Leben. Die Entwicklung menschlicher Individualität geht sowieso dahin authentisch zu sein.

Es ist der Weg und das letztendliche Ziel der menschlichen Evolution, die — herrje, jetzt endlich wirklich aus ihren verkrüppelten Kinderschuhen kommt. DAS kann niemand mehr aufhalten..

Der Glaube, wie diverse Neuroforschungen es anpreisen, all dies wäre über das Gehirn — Schnittstelle Mentalkörper lokalisierbar und heilbar, dürfte ziemlich brüchiger Natur sein. Die tieferen Probleme des MenschSeins und Lebens, können mit dem rationalen Verstand, der auch die Ursache vieler dieser Probleme ist, nicht allein gelöst werden.

Wir brauchen den Verstand, das stimmt natürlich, aber er ist nur eine unserer Ressourcen. Gefühle und Emotionen sind mit unseren Herzen verbunden, dem organischen, sowie spirituellen Chakra und sind direkt mit unseren Zellen und deren Bewusstsein verknüpft. Was wir benötigen ist vielmehr ein gesundes Gleichgewicht zwischen Herz, Verstand und Zellbewusstsein. Das fühlen und verdauen von Verletzungen, das Integrieren und zurückholen abgedrängter, unterdrückter Selbste, seelische und spirituelle Prozesse, treiben die Vervollständigung voran.

Man kann sich aber natürlich auch einreden, man sei bereits Ganz und benötige daher keine Heilung. Aber das wird nicht laufen, sondern ist im Grunde nichts anderes als Verleugnung. Und leider existieren viele solcher Versprechen, innerhalb gechannelter und religiös motivierter Matrixen. Wenn wir es nicht Tun wollen, macht es keiner. Wen es interessiert, ein für mich sehr nützliches Werkzeug ist eine Übung, gefunden in einer alten, von stammenden Durchgabe der Hathoren von Tom Keynon.

Dies lässt sich gut dafür einsetzen, die eigene emotionale Entwicklung voranzubringen. Diese Übung ist sicherlich viel älter und dürfte bis ins alte Ägypten zurückzuverfolgen sein. Man lege die Intention und das Gefühl von Dankbarkeit, Anerkennung, oder Wertschätzung hinein — und lasse sich überraschen. Wer mag, hier der ganze Text zum nachlesen: Ekstase und das Herz.. Wer möchte, soll damit experimentieren.. Atmen bitte nicht vergessen..

Welche Veränderungen nehme ich dabei wahr? Mein Ziel ist relativ einfach geworden. Gefällt mir Gefällt mir. Ja, es gibt solche Menschen, wo deren Selbste agieren, ohne von den anderen zu wissen — aber die funktionieren auch irgendwie — immerhin sind diese Selbste ja da, aber sie stiften manchmal Chaos, weil keine innere Führung existiert.

Es gibt da den Fall eines Psychologen, der an einem Tag, über 12 Anrufe von derselben Person erhielt — er merkte später, es waren wirklich 12 verschiedene Personen, von demselben Menschen, aber alle mit anderer Stimme und Intention. Wir selbst sind da IMMER beteiligt, wir übernehmen es ja — und wie sollte es anders gewesen sein, es hatte doch keiner wirklich eine Ahnung, was für ein Drama lief..

Ganz wie du meinst, Helmut, ist dein gutes Recht. Ich wünsch dir sicher viel Erfolg beim verbinden.. So schön konnte ich es leider nicht erklären, als mir jemand riet, mich nicht weiter mit Inneren Personen befassen, denn sonst würde ich shizophren werden, oder so ähnlich. Halt so eine gespaltene multiple Persönlichkeit. Wenn es eine Handvoll sind, und die anderen bleiben verborgen, das kann ich mir noch vorstellen.

Du kommst hoffentlich klar alleine zu Weihnachten? Ich bin zwar nicht ganz alleine, tu aber so als gäbe es diese Feiertage nicht und vermeide entsprechende Kontakte. Das mit den inneren Personen — also mit Personen gleichzeitig wird es eh nichts.

Ist schon was, wenn man Kontakt mit wenigen oder einer hinbekommt. Mein erster Versuch war ganz kurz. Der Typ erklärte, mein Vater hätte so was verboten, und machte gleich die Schotten dicht.. Sowas passiert nicht und kann auch nicht passieren.. Sie brechen zusammen -und das befreit diese Leute von ihren Blöcken.. Habt ihr nur schöne Erinnerungen daran und könnt einfach drin eintauchen?

Hat niemand schlimme Erinnerung daran, wie es war als ihr erfuhrt, dass das Christkind eine Erfindung um nicht zu sagen Lüge ist? Ich meine, das Innere Personen-Thema ist zu Weihnachten genau so gut oder ungemütlich wie sonst auch. In Indian astrology , Mars is called Mangala and represents energy, confidence and ego.

Jupiter is the ruling planet of Sagittarius and it is exalted in Cancer. In classical Roman mythology, Jupiter is the ruler of the gods and their guardian and protector, and his symbol is the thunderbolt. The Romans believed that Jupiter granted them supremacy because they had honored him more than any other people had.

Jupiter was "the fount of the auspices upon which the relationship of the city with the gods rested. His image in the Republican and Imperial Capitol bore regalia associated with Rome's ancient kings and the highest consular and Imperial honours. In the same way, the planet Jupiter is the king of the other planets, a giant in size with spectacular, brightly colored clouds and intense storms.

Furthermore, Jupiter is usually the fourth-brightest object in the sky after the Sun, the Moon and Venus. Astrologically speaking, Jupiter is associated with the principles of growth, expansion, prosperity, and good fortune. Jupiter governs long distance and foreign travel, big business and wealth, higher education, religion, and the law.

It is also associated with the urge for freedom and exploration, as well with gambling and merrymaking. The 1st-century poet Manilius described Jupiter as temperate and benign, and the greater benefic.

It was regarded as warm and moist in nature, and therefore favorable to life. In medicine, Jupiter is associated with the liver, pituitary gland, and the disposition of fats; it governed the sanguine humor.

In modern astrology, Jupiter is the primary native ruler of the ninth house, but traditionally, Jupiter was assigned to both the second and ninth houses: Jupiter is associated with Thursday, and in Romance languages, the name for Thursday often comes from Jupiter e. Dante Alighieri associated Jupiter with the liberal art of geometry. In Chinese astrology, Jupiter is ruled by the element wood , which is patient, hard-working, and reliable.

In Indian astrology , Jupiter is known as Guru or Brihaspati and is known as the 'great teacher'. Saturn is the ruling planet of Capricorn and is exalted in Libra.

In classical Roman mythology, Saturn is the god of seeds, crops, and the harvest agriculture , leader of the titans, father and founder of civilizations, social order, and conformity.

The glyph is shaped like a scythe, but it is known as the "crescent below the cross", whereas Jupiter's glyph is the "crescent above the cross". Famous rings of the planet Saturn that enclose and surround it, reflect the idea of human limits. During ancient Roman society, the Romans worshipped Saturn as the highest ranking and most important god among their pantheon of deities, sharing that same prestige with Jupiter. Astrologically speaking, Saturn is associated with focus, precision, nobility, ethics, civility, lofty goals, career, great achievements, dedication, authority figures, ordered hierarchy, stability, virtues, productiveness, valuable hard lessons learned, destiny, traditions, structures, protective roles, balance, and karma reaping what you have sowed or divine cosmic justice but with limitations, restrictions, boundaries, anxiety, tests, practicality, reality, and time.

It concerns a person's sense of duty, commitment, responsibility, including their physical and emotional endurance in times of hardships. Saturn also represents the part of a person's concern with long-term planning or foresight. The Return of Saturn is said to mark significant events in each person's life. According to the 1st-century poet Manilius, Saturn is sad, morose, and cold, and is the greater malefic. According to Claudius Ptolemy, "Saturn is lord of the right ear, the spleen, the bladder, the phlegm, and the bones.

It governed the melancholic humor. Before the discovery of Uranus, Saturn was regarded as the ruling planet of Aquarius alongside Capricorn of course, which is the preceding sign. Many traditional types of astrologers refer Saturn as the planetary ruler for both Capricorn and Aquarius. In modern astrology, it is the primary native ruler of the tenth house. Traditionally however, Saturn ruled both the first and eighth houses, and had its joy in the twelfth house of mischief and bad luck.

Saturn is associated with Saturday, which was named after the deity Saturn. Dante Alighieri associated Saturn with the liberal art of astronomia astronomy and astrology. In Chinese astrology, Saturn is ruled by the element earth , which is warm, generous, and co-operative. In Indian astrology , Saturn is called Shani or "Sani", representing a noteworthy career and longevity.

He is also the bringer of obstacles and hardship. Since the invention of the telescope, Western astrology has incorporated Uranus, Neptune, Ceres, Pluto, and other bodies into its methodology.

The Indian and Chinese astrologies have tended to retain the ancient seven-planet system. Meanings have had to be assigned to them by modern astrologers, usually according to the major events that occurred in the world at the time of their discovery. As these astrologers are usually Western, the social and historical events they describe have an inevitable Western emphasis.

Astrologers consider the "extra-Saturnian" planets to be "impersonal" or generational planets, meaning their effects are felt more across whole generations of society. Their effects in individuals depend upon how strongly they feature in that individual's birth-chart. The following are their characteristics as accepted by most astrologers.

Uranus is the ruling planet of Aquarius and is exalted in Scorpio. In classical Greek mythology, Uranus is the personification of the sky. The planet Uranus is very unusual among the planets in that it rotates on its side, so that it presents each of its poles to the Sun in turn during its orbit; causing both hemispheres to alternate between being bathed in light and lying in total darkness over the course of the orbit.

Uranus takes 84 years to orbit the Sun, spending about 7 years in each sign of the zodiac. Uranus was discovered to be a planet only in by Sir William Herschel. Astrological interpretations associate Uranus with the principles of ingenuity, new or unconventional ideas, individuality, discoveries, electricity, inventions, democracy, and revolutions.

Uranus, among all planets, most governs genius. Uranus governs societies, clubs, and any group based on humanitarian or progressive ideals. Uranus, the planet of sudden and unexpected changes, rules freedom and originality. In society, it rules radical ideas and people, as well as revolutionary events that upset established structures. Uranus is also associated with Wednesday, alongside Mercury since Uranus is in the higher octave of Mercury.

In art and literature, the discovery of Uranus coincided with the Romantic movement, which emphasized individuality and freedom of creative expression. Additionally, it is often linked to an individual's animal spirit.

When it comes to medicine, Uranus is believed to be particularly associated with the sympathetic nervous system, mental disorders, breakdowns and hysteria, spasms, and cramps. Uranus is considered by modern astrologers to be the primary native ruler of the eleventh house. Neptune is the ruling planet of Pisces and is exalted in Leo. In classical Roman mythology, Neptune is the god of the sea, and the deep, ocean blue color of the planet Neptune reflects this.

Neptune takes years to orbit the Sun, spending approximately 14 years Astrologically speaking, Neptune is associated with idealism, dreams, dissolution, artistry, and empathy, but with illusion and vagueness too. In art, the impressionist movement began a trend away from literal representation, to one based on the subtle, changing moods of light and color. In medicine, Neptune is seen to be particularly associated with the thalamus, the spinal canal, and uncertain illnesses or neuroses. Neptune is considered by modern astrologers to be the primary ruler of the twelfth house.

Pluto is the ruling planet of Scorpio and is exalted in Virgo. In classical Roman mythology, Pluto is the god of the underworld who is extremely wealthy. The alchemical symbol was given to Pluto on its discovery, three centuries after alchemical practices had all but disappeared.

The alchemical symbol can therefore be read as spirit over mind, transcending matter. Pluto takes years to make a full circuit of the zodiac, but its progress is highly variable: Astrologically speaking, Pluto is called "the great renewer", and is considered to represent the part of a person that destroys in order to renew, through bringing buried, but intense needs and drives to the surface, and expressing them, even at the expense of the existing order.

A commonly used keyword for Pluto is "transformation". Pluto is also associated with Tuesday, alongside Mars. Its entry in Cancer in , the sign in which it was later discovered, coincided with World War I. It is also associated with nuclear armament due to such weapons using plutonium , which was named after the dwarf planet. Nuclear research had its genesis in the s and 40s and later gave rise to the polarized nuclear standoff of the Cold War, with the mass consumer societies of the United States and other democracies facing the totalitarian state of the USSR.

The discovery of Pluto also occurred just after the birth of modern psychoanalysis, when Freud and Jung began to explore the depths of the unconscious.

In real life events and culture, Pluto has been a major astrological aspect. When it comes to art, movements like Cubism and Surrealism began to de-construct the "normal" view of the world. In medicine, Pluto is seen to be associated with regenerative forces in the body involving cell formation and the reproductive system.

Ceres is the smallest identified dwarf planet in the Solar System, but is significantly the largest object in the asteroid belt. It was discovered on 1 January by Giuseppe Piazzi, and is named after Ceres, the Roman goddess of growing plants, the harvest, and of motherly love. It was the first asteroid discovered, taking up about one-third of the entire mass of its asteroid belt. Ceres was assigned a planetary symbol, and remained listed as a planet in astronomy books and tables for about half a century.

The debate surrounding Pluto and what constitutes a planet led to Ceres being considered for reclassification as a planet, but in the end Ceres and Pluto were classified as the first members of the new dwarf planet category. In mythology, Ceres is the Roman equivalent of the Greek goddess Demeter , and is the goddess of agriculture. The goddess and metaphorically the planet is also associated with the reproductive issues of an adult woman, as well as pregnancy and other major transitions in a woman's life, including the nine months of gestation time, family bonds and relationships.

In old opinion, Ceres is the ruling planet of Virgo but as more knowledge about the planet's character has been revealed, majority of modern astrologers opinion, denote Ceres being the ruler for Taurus , however, Ceres is exalted in Virgo.

Ceres epitomizes independent women who are often unmarried since, according to myth, Ceres is an unmarried goddess who chose to become a mother without a husband or partner. While the moon represents our ideal of "motherhood", Ceres would represent how our real and nature motherhood should be. Ceres, as the Goddess who has control over nature's resources and cycles, may astrologically be considered the planet of the Environment.

Returning to mythology, an early environmental villain is the figure of Erysichthon , the tearer up of the earth, who cut down trees in a grove sacred to Ceres-Demeter, for which he was punished by the goddess with fearful hunger.

In this sense Ceres became an emerging archetype in the awareness of recent climate change , and is entering our collective consciousness as a need to take care of our natural and irreplaceable resources in the 21st century. Ceres represents a leap towards a future of ecological responsibility and knowledge. As an indicator for environmental or community activism, Ceres would represent for some astrologers the wave of the future.

Some asteroids such as Pallas and Vesta , as well as dwarf planet Ceres , can sometimes be seen with binoculars Vesta even with the naked eye , but these were not recognized as planetary, and perhaps not even noticed, until the early 19th century.

In the early 19th century, Ceres , Juno , and the other two aforementioned asteroids were for a time regarded as planets. Although asteroids have been known to both astronomers and astrologers for more than years, they are often ignored by astrologers. The tradition of some astrologers casting charts with minor planets originates with these asteroids.

Since the discovery of Chiron in the s, some astrologers have been casting the new "planet", although astronomers consider it a centaur a kind of intermediate object between comet and asteroid. In the 21st century, several new planet-sized bodies, including Sedna , Quaoar , Haumea , and Eris , have been discovered, but not yet incorporated into mainstream astrological predictions, although some more avant-garde groups have attempted to incorporate them.

Comets and novae have been observed and discussed for several thousand years. Comets in particular were portents of great interest to ancient people and given various astrological interpretations. Both phenomena are rarely visible to the naked-eye, and are ignored by most modern astrologers. The near-earth asteroid Cruithne is thought to influence the zodiac and some personal horoscopes.

Some astrologers have hypothesized about the existence of unseen or undiscovered planets. In , astrologer Sepharial proposed the existence of Earth's "Dark Moon" Lilith , and since then, some astrologers have been using it in their charts; though the same name is also and now, more commonly used in astrology to refer to the axis of the actual Moon's orbit. The 20th-century German school of astrology known as Uranian astrology also claimed that many undiscovered planets existed beyond the orbit of Neptune, giving them names such as Cupido, Hades, Zeus, Kronos, Apollon, Admetos, Vulcanus, and Poseidon, and charting their supposed orbits.

These orbits have not coincided, however, with more recent discoveries by astronomers of objects beyond Neptune. Other astrologers have focused on the theory that in time, all twelve signs of the zodiac will each have their own ruler, so that another two planets have yet to be discovered; namely the "true" rulers of Taurus and Virgo. The names of the planets mentioned in this regard by some are Vulcan ruler of Virgo and Apollo , the Roman god of the Sun ruler of Taurus.

In other words, it is claimed that the two planets to be discovered will be named after an earth god or goddess such as the Horae , and after Aether , the Roman and Greek god of the upper air and stars.

In Western astrology, the symbolism associated with the planets also relates to the zodiac signs and houses of the horoscope in their various rulerships. For instance, the description of Mars is masculine, impulsive, and active. Aries is ruled by Mars and has a similar description, representing an active, masculine archetype. Similarly, the first house is also ruled by Mars, and deals with a person's physical health and strength, and the manner in which they project themselves.

Modern signs , houses and planetary associations. The planets in the table rule the signs on the same row, and the houses do correspond with the signs on the same row i. Mars rules Aries; Aries and first house share some correspondences.

However, it is only modern astrology that links the planets to the houses in this order. Traditional houses and planetary relationships. Before the age of telescopes, the night sky was thought to consist of two very similar components: Although strictly, the term planet applied only to those five objects, the term was latterly broadened, particularly in the Middle Ages, to include the Sun and the Moon sometimes referred to as "Lights"[1] , making a total of seven planets.

To modern astrologers, the planets represent basic drives or urges i Astrology is the study of the movements and relative positions of celestial objects as a means of divining information about human affairs and terrestrial events. Western astrology, one of the oldest astrological systems still in use, can trace its roots to 19th—17th century BCE Mesopotamia, from which it spread to Ancient Greece, Rome, the Arab world and eventually Central and Western Europe.

Contemporary Western astrology is often associated with systems of horoscopes that purport to explain aspects of a person's personality and predict significant events in their lives based on the positions of ce Vedanga Jyotishya is one of the earliest texts about astronomy within the Vedas. Following a judgement of the Andhra Pradesh High Court in which favoured astrology, some Indian universities now offer advanced degrees in Hindu astrology, despite protest from the scientific community.

The twelve signs of the zodiac, miniatures from a book of hours. Each sector is named for a constellation it passes through. The concept of the zodiac originated in Babylonian astrology, and was later influenced by Hellenistic culture.

According to astrology, celestial phenomena relate to human activity on the principle of "as above, so below", so that the signs are held to represent characteristic modes of expression.

In astrology, a planet's domicile or less commonly house, not to be confused with the astrological house system is the zodiac sign over which it has rulership. This is a separate concept from the houses of the horoscope. A planetary ruler is given to each sign, over which the planet is said to have a more powerful influence when positioned therein.

A planet is considered to be in domal dignity when it is positioned in the sign it rules. This is the strongest of the five essential dignities of a planet. The assignments of the ruling planets appear to be based upon the Northern Hemisphere seasons, as the sun Sol and the moon, the principal bearers of light and heat, were awarded to Leo and Cancer, respectively, since the months the sun passed through these signs in ancient times were the warmest and had the longest days.

Conversely, Saturn, the most distant and hence the "coldest" of the planets known to ancients, was accorded the rulership of Aquarius and Capricorn, the signs opposite Leo and Cancer, In astrology, an aspect is an angle the planets make to each other in the horoscope, also to the ascendant, midheaven, descendant, lower midheaven, and other points of astrological interest.

Aspects are measured by the angular distance in degrees and minutes of ecliptic longitude between two points, as viewed from Earth. According to astrological tradition, they indicate the timing of transitions and developmental changes in the lives of people and affairs relative to the Earth.

The more exact an aspect, the stronger or more dominant it is said to be in shaping character or manifesting change. Symbols used in astrology overlap with those used in astronomy because of the historical overlap between the two subjects.

Frequently used symbols include signs of the zodiac and for the classical planets. These have their origin in medieval Byzantiny, but in their current form are a product of the European Renaissance. Other symbols for astrological aspects are used in various astrological traditions. History and origin Symbols for the classical planets, zodiac signs, aspects, lots, and the lunar nodes appear in the medieval Byzantine codices in which many ancient horoscopes were preserved.

Western astrology is the system of astrology most popular in Western countries. Western astrology is historically based on Ptolemy's Tetrabiblos 2nd century CE , which in turn was a continuation of Hellenistic and ultimately Babylonian traditions.

Western astrology is largely horoscopic, that is, it is a form of divination based on the construction of a horoscope for an exact moment, such as a person's birth, in which various cosmic bodies are said to have an influence. Astrology in western popular culture is often reduced to sun sign astrology, which considers only the individual's date of birth i. Astrology is generally regarded as pseudoscientific. It has consistently failed objective tests.

The individual, Earth, and its environment are viewed as a single organism, all parts Astrology has used the concept of classical elements from antiquity up until the present. In Western astrology and Indian astrology four elements are used: Fire, Earth, Air, and Water.

Western astrology Four Classical Elements; this classic diagram has two squares on top of each other, with the corners of one being the classical elements, and the corners of the other being the properties In Western tropical astrology, there are always 12 astrological signs.

Each of the four elements is associated with 3 signs of the Zodiac which are always located exactly degrees away from each other along the ecliptic and said to be in trine with one another. Most modern astrologers use the four classical elements extensively, also known as triplicities and indeed it is still viewed as a critical part of interpreting the astrological chart.

Beginning with the first sign Aries which is a Fire sign, the next in line Taurus is Earth, then to Gemini which is Air, and finally to Cancer which is Water. In sidereal and tropical astrology including sun sign astrology , a sign zodiac is used based on dividing the ecliptic into 12 equal parts rather than the IAU constellation boundaries. That is, astrological signs do not correspond to the constellations which are their namesakes, particularly not i Sun sign astrology is the form of astrology most commonly found in many newspaper and magazine columns.

It is a simplified system of astrology which considers only the position of the Sun at birth, which is said to be placed within one of the twelve zodiac signs.

This sign is then called the sun sign or star sign of the person born in that twelfth-part of the year. Sun sign astrologers take this basic twelve-fold division and relate all the current movements of all the planets to each other, using traditional rules to divine meanings for each sign separately. Because the Moon has the fastest apparent movement of all the heavenly bodies, it is often used as the main indicator of daily trends for sun sign astrology forecasts.

History Although William Lilly in the 17th century was the first newspaper astrologer, sun sign astrology was not invented until Naylor was claimed by his newspaper to have predicted the crash of the R airship. This led to pressure on Naylor to come up with Natal astrology, also known as genethliacal astrology, is the system of astrology based on the concept that each individual's personality or path in life can be determined by constructing a natal chart for the exact date, time, and locations of that individual's birth.

Natal astrology can be found in the Indian or Jyotish, Chinese and Western astrological traditions. In horoscopic astrology an individual's personality is determined by the construction of the horoscope or birth chart for the particular individual involved known as the native , showing the positions of the sun, moon, planets, ascendant, midheaven, and the angles or aspects among them.

Once the horoscope has been constructed the process of interpretation can begin, which involves building a complete picture of the personality of the subject, or native.

Interpretation involves three main steps: Chart weighting involves noting the distribution of There are a number of planets or moons whose existence is not supported by scientific evidence, but are proposed by various astrologers, pseudoscientists, conspiracy theorists, or certain religious groups.

Lilith Lilith is a hypothetical second moon of Earth, supposedly about the same mass as the Earth's Moon, proposed in by astrologer Walter Gorn Old, who called himself Sepharial. Sepharial applied the name Lilith from medieval Jewish legend, where she is described as the first wife of Adam. Exaltation Degrees of the Planets In astrology, exaltation is one of the five essential dignities of a planet. Each of the seven traditional planets has its exaltation in one zodiac sign.

These positions are listed in astrological texts of the early medieval Arabic period, such as al-Biruni's 11th-century Book of Instruction in the Elements of the Art of Astrology.

A illustration of Zodiac Man homo signorum showing the anciently held link between the 12 signs of the Zodiac and the various parts of the body Medical astrology traditionally known as iatromathematics is an ancient medical system that associates various parts of the body, diseases, and drugs as under the influence of the sun, moon, and planets, along with the twelve astrological signs.

Each of the astrological signs along with the sun, moon, and planets is associated with different parts of the human body. Medical astrology posits the association of each sign of the zodiac with parts of the body, and was already mentioned by Marcus Manilius 1st century AD in his epic poem verses Astronomica. The signs of the zodiac were believed to preside over the parts of the body, covering the body from head Aries to toe Pisces.

The anatomical-astrological human After examin In classical antiquity, the seven classical planets are the seven non-fixed astronomical objects in the sky visible to the naked eye: The term planet in modern terminology is only applied to natural satellites directly orbiting the Sun, so that of the seven classical planets, five are planets in the modern sense.

Babylonian astronomy Babylonians recognized seven planets. A bilingual list in the British Museum records the seven Babylonian planets in this order: Astrological beliefs in correspondences between celestial observations and terrestrial events have influenced various aspects of human history, including world-views, language and many elements of social culture. Among Indo-European peoples, astrology has been dated to the 3rd millennium BC, with roots in calendrical systems used to predict seasonal shifts and to interpret celestial cycles as signs of divine communications.

It was commonly accepted in political and cultural circles, and some of its concepts were used in other traditional studies, such as alchemy, meteorology and medicine. Empirical scientific investigation has shown that predictions and re In astrology, a celestial body is said to be in detriment, or exile, when it is positioned in the zodiac sign opposite the sign it rules over which it has domicile. When a celestial body is in detriment it is said to be not comfortable in that sign and to tend to operate with the least strength.

However, some of them especially the largest of them , are believed by some astrologers to influence human affairs. Still though, they are often ignored within mainstream systems of astrology, especially in more traditional astrology systems like Vedic astrology or Hellenistic astrology. Their use has become significant to a few Western astrologers yet still only a minority of astrologers use the asteroids in chart interpretation.

The former planets Ceres, Pallas, Juno and Vesta in order of discovery were counted as planets from until , when smaller asteroids began to be discovered. Astronomically the status of Ceres has changed again. In a proposed Resolution in , it was suggested as one of the 12 planets in our Solar System, but in the end was re-classified as a dwarf planet by the International Astronomical Union. Many astrologers believe that astronomical labels don't ho According to Ancient Greek culture, planets were believed to have influences and provide guidance to humans, as they lived their lives.

The planet's nature determines if it is Benefic or not, based on whether it helps the affected areas, with money problems for example. Changes are dependent upon, and specific to each individual person. Horoscopes and their Zodiac sign indicate the goal of the planet for each person, as to which will be Malefic and which will be Benefic. Examples Some examples of Benefic planets are: Jupiter is considered to provide abundance and Most horoscopic traditions of astrology systems divide the horoscope into a number usually twelve of houses whose positions depend on time and location rather than on date.

The houses of the horoscope represent different fields of experience wherein the energies of the signs and planets operate[1] — described in terms of physical surroundings as well as personal life experiences. Description In this natal chart, the twelve houses are numbered close to the central circle containing the colored aspect lines; this particular horoscope uses the Placidus house system.

Every house system is dependent on the rotational movement of Earth on its axis, but there is a wide range of approaches to calculating house divisions and different opinions among astrologers over which house system is most accurate. In natal astrology, some astrologers will use a birth time set fo Sidereal and tropical are astrological terms used to describe two different definitions of a year.

They are also used as terms for two systems of ecliptic coordinates used in astrology. Both divide the ecliptic into a number of "signs" named after constellations, but while the sidereal system defines the signs based on the fixed stars, the tropical system defines it based on the position of vernal equinox in the northern hemisphere i.

Because of the precession of the equinoxes, the two systems do not remain fixed relative to each other but drift apart by about 1. The tropical system was adopted during the Hellenistic period and remains prevalent in Western astrology. A sidereal system is used in Hindu astrology, and in some 20th century systems of Western astrology. While classical tropical astrology is based on the orientation of the Earth relative to the Sun and planets of the solar system, sidereal astrology deals In astrology, a malefic planet, or simply malefic, is a planet thought to bring bad luck and misfortune to those born within its radius.

They are opposed to the benefic planets such as Jupiter and Venus, which are said to grant good fortune by contrast.

In Modern Astrology Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are sometimes also considered malefic, especially when in difficult aspect to a personal planet, however, they are still under consideration. A planet that is placed between two malefic planets, traditionally Mars and Saturn, is said to be "besieged. The Intermediate self-discovery Workbook in Scorpio is the eighth astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Scorpius.

Under the tropical zodiac most commonly used in Western astrology , the Sun transits this area on average from October 23 to November After Pluto was discovered in , it became associated with Scorpio instead. The snake and eagle are related to the nearby constellations of Ophiuchus and Aquila. It spans the —th degree of the zodiac, corresponding to celestial longitude. Under the tropical zodiac, the sun transits this area from about December 21 to January 21 the following year,[2] and under the sidereal zodiac, the sun transits the constellation of Capricorn from approximately January 16 to February In astrology, Capricorn is considered an earth sign, negative sign,[3][4] and one of the four cardinal signs.

Capricorn is said to be ruled by the planet Saturn. Its symbol is based on the Sumerians' primordial god of wisdom and waters, Enki,[5] with the head and upper body of a goat and the lower body and tail of a fish. In Vedic astrology a constant reference is made to the Navamsa occupied by planets and the Lagna-point.

Both, the Rasi-chart and the Navamsa-chart are deemed equally important and therefore, consulted together. Whereas the Rasi-chart provides overall information regarding the location of planets and sensitive-points such as the Lagna, the latter provides vital information regarding their active quality and strength.

A planet may be well-placed in the natal-chart Rasi-wise but its full effects may not materialise if its situation in the navamsa-chart is not supportive. Navamsa literally means the "Ninth Division". Thus, each navamsa measures 3 degrees and 20 minutes in longitude or one-quarter of a Nakshatra Constellation , and the Zodiac of Signs comprises navamsas divided into four groups, 1 Mesha Aries , Simha Leo and Dhanus Sagittarius — for which signs the navamsas are from Aries to Dhanus, 2 Vrishibha Taurus , This diagram of the Ptolemaic solar system from Peter Apian's Cosmographia shows the "fixed stars" in the eighth heaven of the firmament, behind which is a ninth, crystalline heaven, and behind that, the primum mobile.

In astrology, certain stars are considered significant. Historically, all of the various heavenly bodies considered by astrologers were considered "stars", whether they were stars, planets, other stellar phenomena like novas and supernovas, or other solar system phenomena like comets and meteors.

Astrology also treats the Sun, a star, and Earth's Moon as if they were planets in the horoscope. These stars were called "fixed" because it was though A planet, in astronomy, is one of a class of celestial bodies that orbit stars.

A dwarf planet is a similar, but officially mutually exclusive, class of body.

Knowing the ruling planet of the hour is needed when the blessing "He who has wrought the work of creation" must be recited at the moment of the spring equinox every 28 years: He who sees the sun at its turning point, the moon in its power, the planets in their orbits, and the signs of the zodiac in their orderly progress, should say: Blessed be He who has wrought the work of creation.

And when [does this happen] — Abaye said: Every twenty-eight years when the cycle begins again and the Nisan [Spring] equinox falls in the hour of Saturn on the evening of Tuesday going into Wednesday.

Just as metal can conduct electricity, the metal person has strong impulses and generative powers and can bring about Each movement of the suite is named after a planet of the Solar System and its corresponding astrological character as defined by Holst.

From its premiere to the present day, the suite has been enduringly popular, influential, widely performed and frequently recorded. The work was not heard in a complete public performance, however, until some years after it was completed. Although there were four performances between September and October , they were all either private the first performance, in London or incomplete two others in London and one in Birmingham.

The premiere was at the Queen's Hall on 29 September ,[1] conducted by Holst's friend Adrian Boult before an invited audience of about people. The first complete public performance was finally given in London by Albert Coates conducting the London Symphony Orchestra on 15 November Planetary aspects are interchange of energies at great distances; the respective mass of each planet generates and radiates its own specific energy-field. At times these planetary aspects take a lead over planetary conjunctions.

However, there are three great differences between Western astrology and Hindu astrology in computing these aspects - 1 in the former system the count is made from degree to degree, in the latter system the count is made from sign to sign, 2 in the former system the aspect will be mutually the same i.

A horoscope calculated for January 1, at The word horoscope is derived from Greek words hõra and scopos meaning "time" and "observer" horoskopos, pl. Other commonly used names for the horoscope in English include natal chart, astrological chart, astro-chart, celestial map, sky-map, star-chart, cosmogram, vitasphere, radical chart, radix, chart wheel or simply chart.

It is used as a method of divination regarding events relating to the point in time it represents, and it forms the basis of the horoscopic traditions of astrology. In common usage, horoscope often refers to an astrologer's interpretation, usually based on a system of solar Sun sign In Babylon as well as in Assyria as a direct offshoot of Babylonian culture, astrology takes its place as one of the two chief means at the disposal of the priests who were called bare or "inspectors" for ascertaining the will and intention of the gods, the other being through the inspection of the livers of sacrificial animals see omen.

Early origins Babylonian astrology was the first organized system of astrology, arising in the second millennium BC. A planet is an astronomical body orbiting a star or stellar remnant that is massive enough to be rounded by its own gravity, is not massive enough to cause thermonuclear fusion, and has cleared its neighbouring region of planetesimals.

Five planets in the Solar System are visible to the naked eye. These were regarded by many early cultures as divine, or as emissaries of deities. As scientific knowledge advanced, human perception of the planets changed, incorporating a number of disparate objects. This definition is controversial because it excludes many objects of planetary mass based on where or what they orbit. Although eight of the planetary bodies discovered before remain "planets" under the modern definition, some celestial bodies, such as Ceres, Pallas, Juno and Vesta ea
