Why Astrology Is The Lost Key

With the naked eye we see only a small spectrum of the energy that stars emit, but subtle cosmic influences have been felt by people for eons. Astrology attempts to label and discuss these observed energies from the cosmos. Though astrological theorems are subjective, they are gathered over long periods of time and have a basis in the permanency of the stars. It is the observation of these feelings that were originally used to define the zodiac signs, and delineate the constellations. People who lived on continents divided by the great expanse of our oceans, and had no known contact with each other, primarily came to similar conclusions about the influences of the stars. (Gregory Cajete, 2000)

Astrology gives us clues to energetic phenomenon that can be proven in the sensitivity we carry to our work. Similarly, modern scientists are currently experimenting with how electromagnetic fields affect living organisms. They are finding collaborative evidence in their study of microbes and small marine creatures such as corals and sponges (Hansford, 2007). It is understandable that astronomical emanations can affect our sensitive laboratory experiments when you consider that our Sun also creates electromagnetic energy waves when plasma ejections strike the Earth’s protective magnetosphere. Modern scientific methods have similarly detected many other types of subtle energies. Some of these energies are defined as gamma rays, x-rays, radio waves, and intense gravitational fields. The Aurora Borealis is one such product of the Sun’s solar radiation.

With the availability of orbital telescopes and spectrum analysis, science has discovered that stars are the source of all metals present in the Universe. As a result scientists speculate that everything made of matter comes from the stars (Geographic, 2010). Inversely, through the use of higher mathematics, astronomers have discovered dark matter (White, 2010) (Chandra, 2006). It appears as the black expanses between all astral bodies, and comprises about one third of the universe. It is reminiscent of what ancient alchemists called the ether, a rarefied element believed to fill the upper regions of space.

Every year there are new discoveries from those deep-space-viewing orbital telescopes, and inter-planetary probes, that are changing the way science sees the universe. They are just beginning to understand how objects from space affect each other, our World, and the living beings that dwell here (Junius, 1985). As technology gets more advanced it is probable that many of the facets of alchemy and astrology will be re-discovered. Simply put, especially regarding laboratory processes that take a great deal of time, the astrological conditions can speed up reactions and cultivation. Cosmic influences can also dispel an expected result, thus adding to the importance of astrological predictions.
