MORE DIVIDES EACH DAY THAN LIGHT AND DARKNESS
Astrology as we use it today has been largely collected from traditions which sought to elect the establishment of cities, the enthronement of kings, the movements of war, hereditary transmission of thrones, the ritual magic of dynasties. This may have been carried through along with the natal charts of aristocracy, much later transferred to and democratized to physicians and lawyers and the managerial class, as well as to the libraries of the nobility, before it fell to the Enlightenment and returned in the form of New Age Sun Sign ego based agendas. This I see largely as solar astrology. Clarifying, delineating, detailing, time tracking, year framing. I use it professionally and personally every day. But there is an older Lunar based astrology that concerns itself with the travel of the Moon across the backdrop of sky and star and lives in the visible and experiential layer of our physical world. What we feel with our bodies, our emotions, our imaginations, our stream of consciousness, our dreams. It’s confusing, quickly changing, morphing, moody, mysterious, mystifying, nonsensical, sensual and cyclical. A sky stretched into 28 animal forms articulated by the movement of the Moon.
