as·trol·o·gy (-strl-j)
n.
The study of the positions and aspects of celestial bodies in the belief that they have an influence on the course of natural earthly occurrences and human affairs.


The study of Astrology dates back to 3000 BC. This is when the earliest written astrological records of the lunar cycles, the stars movements, and
planetary movements were first recorded. Stonehenge was starting to be built around 2500 BC and was used to calculate astronomical data.

The Zodiac, believed to have been developed by the ancient Egyptians and later adopted by the Babylonians, means "circle of animals" in Greek. During the time of these great civilizations, Astrology was mostly used to predict large-scale events such as war, famine, natural disasters, and the weather. We believe this is the birthplace of Astrology. The Babylonians introduced it to the Greeks early in the 4th century BC, and through great philosophers such as Aristotle and Plato. The early Astrologers were very aware that it took the sun 12 lunar cycles to return back to its original position in the skies, and they identified 12 constellations of stars that were linked to the cycle of seasons. Then, they assigned each constellation a name, and hence, we have the signs of the Zodiac: (starting in spring) Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. Astrology became highly regarded as a science.

Around 250 BC, the Greeks devised a sophisticated system of using the date and time of birth to gain insights into an individual's personality traits and characteristics as well as some of the major experiences that you are destined to experience. Ptolemy wrote the first modern Astrology textbook establishing the heart and soul of Astrology, which has not much changed in the practices of Western Astrology today. He served in dual roles as both the scientifically-minded mathematical astronomer searching out the skies, and as the metaphysically-minded astrologer divining the purposes of the heavens.

During the Middles Ages, there was what was known as "The Quiet Period" in Western Astrology. The Christian Church was busily at work getting ready to establish itself as the predominant Western world power and belief system for the next several hundred years. Astrologers of this day were not keen on losing their heads. Out of necessity and the avoidance of possible persecution, they took to the underground and kept a low profile. The Church was unsure of its official standpoint on Astrology. There were times when the Christian church leaders condemned astrology as being heretical, while at the same time, other church leaders sought out the professional help of astrologers to guide them on their path. We believe the church's involvement during this time was mixed, and seemed to be quite hypocritical.

From Astrology, came both Medicine and Astronomy, and up until recently (the 18th century), Astronomy and Astrology were one and the same. One even had to be educated in Astrology to become a Doctor. And, it was a regular course of study for the Doctors during that time.

atmosphere and of their physical and chemical properties, and reduces to mathematical order these observations. Astrology is the study of the divination on human affairs by the movements of these celestial bodies.

So what, do you ask, can astrology do for me today? We believe it is sort of a "roadmap" to your life. Astrology is about personal growth and development. It is here to give you the insights you need to help you on your path to prosperity. "We are not human beings on a spiritual experience, but spiritual beings on a human experience." If you seek wisdom and guidance, it is one of the tools we have to better understand ourselves and our purpose on this planet. We're all on a quest for greater peace and balance, and ways to make sense of our lives. We want astrology to empower us and to help spread some light. Astrology does not predict the future, but can tell us what trends are coming. It is not fortune telling, but can give us just the information and insights we need to make decisions that determine our future. "A moment's insight is sometimes worth a lifetime's experience."

We sincerely hope that you have enjoyed this introduction to astrology, and that it has helped to answer many of your questions as well as plant the seed for further exploration in this exciting study.
