For millenia, astrology and astronomy were intertwined.
With the rise of studies such as those by Isaac Newton in the late 1600s, astronomy became a separate scientific field. Astrology and astronomy got divorced!
Astronomy is now the scientific observation and study of celestial objects. Cosmology, which is a part of astronomy, studies the entire universe as a whole, including its origins.
Astrology is the esoteric study of each individual's gifts from our sky family. It shows the celestial objects, their sky paths, and how our lives and souls respond. In astrology, we discover our essential inner self, our outer self, energetic influences that surround us, and how we may grow.
The celestial bodies in our physical universe interact with each other and respond to each other. We interact with and respond to the entire universe and our sky family, consciously and unconsciously.
Are the planets and stars a metaphorical show, a play specially written for us and shown in a cosmic theater?
The sun rises day after day, bringing bright light. Then, each night it sets and descends into darkness. This bright star echoes our soul's journey, where our life begins and ends and we seem to disappear into darkness. Do we really stop existing? Or, does the next life begin in darkness and we wake to brilliant light? Look at the sun as it rises again out of the darkness.
