Ancient Astrology

Ancient Mayan Astrological Calendar"Astrology is the oldest science in the world."

Man's curiosity about the stars was the beginning of the "Science of Astrology" and Archaeologists have found records proving the study of Astrology in the ruins of almost every ancient civilization.

Long before man invented telescopes, or understood what the stars really are, people throughout history have looked at the night sky and felt that it contained a fascinating mystery. They felt the stars were magical and that they must have some special message important to them in some way.

These "star-gazers" were the fore-runners of the Ancient Astrologers. By observing the stars, they noticed that a few "bright stars" moved independently. They called these moving stars "wanderers." (Today we call them planets). The "Ancients" identified these "wanderers", and they are still known by their ancient names: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. (These are the names of gods, which is what the Ancient Astrologers believed the planets to be). Ancient Astrologers also observed that The Moon moved across the sky and The Sun also seemed to move, rising in the east and setting in the west.

The Ancients studied and wrote down all they knew about the movements of The Sun, The Moon and the planets. Today, we continue to study them in a different manner. With big telescopes and we call their study the "Science of Astronomy." In reality, Astrology was the Mother of Modern Astronomy.

In fact, upon close examination, The ancient history of Astrology is closely interrelated with the history of Astronomy. Therefore, the history of ancient Astronomy must be treated jointly with the history of Astrology, whose contribution to the history of science has been grossly underestimated.

While modern Astronomers resist this premise, an increasing number do believe that there is a relationship between The Sun, The Moon, the planets and the lives of each one of us.

The good news is that more attention is being paid to ancient Astrology, which has played an important role in the history of human thought, in addition to Ancient Philosophy, Mathematics, and Astronomy.

While Astronomers pursue their interest in finding out scientific facts about the Solar System, modern Astrologers continue to study the connection between the movements of the planets and people's lives.

"God created the stars and the heaven for more than the sake of beauty. He gave them to us for interpretation so that we may live a more productive life. Man is superior to the stars if he lives in the power of superior wisdom. Such a person, being the master over heaven and earth, by means of his will, is a Magus, and magic is not sorcery but supreme wisdom."
-- Paracelsus
