Astrology bridges the inner world
the outer world.
It works both with time as a linear process and it
reveals how we tune to the universe as a non-causal, resonance process.
Like any tool, what it does has a lot
to do with who uses it. In the last few centuries, both the use and
popular understanding of astrology has shifted towards a linear and
causal interpretation of our lives and the universe around us.
However, at its core, astrology is
fundamentally a spiritual science that opens up to us the opportunities to
change our internal and external relationships from the standpoint of
our true nature and sprit.
In order to use astrology in this way,
requires that the practitioner be already established in their awareness
of spirit themselves.
If you would like to shift your relationship to fate and destiny, and you live in the Miami area, I highly recommend that you consider the two day workshop
Free Your Destiny: Move Beyond
It is next offered on June 6 and 7 of 2015, and includes continuing education units, CEU's for eligible healing professions.
Astrology & Fate
Many people associate
astrology with fate. They may feel that getting an astrology reading is
like finding out how things have already been predetermined, and that
the reading will reveal the inevitable outcomes.
not work that way. It is not that astrology cannot be used to accurately
predict things. It is that people often misunderstand fate and how
astrology works, or how any science works for that matter.
live in a society that for the last few hundred years has embraced fate.
Our view of the universe is highly rooted in a linear sense of time, in
a belief in causality, action and reaction. It is a very objectified
stance that requires that everything behave as a mechanism, and that in
order for any belief, system of knowledge or perception of the world to
be valid, it must be described and understood from a viable mechanistic
viewpoint. In other words, if you don’t know how it works, then its
validity is questionable.
Astrology, Coincidence and
Not everything works because it is a
mechanism, or because it is the result of an action or a causal pattern
Another way of looking at the world and making sense
of it, is to see it from the standpoint of relationship. Some things
seem to be related. That relationship can be causal, but it doesn’t have
Often times we may have the
experience of seemly unrelated events occurring in such a way that they
seem profoundly related, and yet, from a causal point of view, there is
no apparent reason that ties them together.
Typically, people dismiss
this as coincidence. By coincidence, they mean that these are random
events that are not related, but are simply occurring, and we make them
related because we notice them that way,
Most of us remember in
science, we were taught that energy and matter takes the form of
particles and waves. From the classical physics point of view, and from
the perspective of particles, atoms and objects, it makes sense that if
there is no causal relationship between things, then they have come
together based on chance.
However, when we look at the
interaction of waves and quantum theory, we are forced to re-examine the
whole concept of co-incidence. In fact the whole concept of
co-incidence from the standpoint of quantum theory and wave interaction
is the reverse understanding. Everything is inter-connected. Waves,
unlike particles continue on to infinity. It is just that their
intensity decreases significantly over distance. But even at a great
distance, wave interaction occurs. We are able to tune and amplify waves
from stars at great distances, and we are able to pick up the background
vibrations that relate to the original universe expansion (the 'big
bang') even to this day.
Why this is important from
the standpoint of fate, is that when we view the universe from the
standpoint of objects and particles, from a linear causality, then we
may be convinced that we live in a world of fate, with fated outcomes.
And from that perspective, astrology can reveal your fated interaction
with the universe.
Astrology can free
you from the grip of fatedness.
On the other hand, if you
realize that your experience of the universe depends on what you tune
to, to what you resonate with, to what you relate to and to what you do
not relate to, then astrology reveals how you co-create your own
universe, your own experience of the reality around you.
This is not the path of fate,
it is the path that begins to free you, where your choices are revealed
to you through a greater understanding of who you are, what you choose
not from reaction but from what you resonate with, and what is revealed
from what you tune to and what you amplify.
This path of astrology is not
fate based. This path of astrology can free you, This offering of
astrology is why it is a spiritual science.
