Astrology: The astronomy we really need…

The pyramids. The Logos of the stars affects us all down here...
The pyramids. The Logos of the stars affects us all down here…

We laugh at astrology.

We think it is “unscientific”.

We need a Shestov to remind us how wrong we are.

Because astrology is not talking about whether you will win the jackpot tommorow or whether you will be king. Astrology is about studying the stars (most greatest astronomers were actually astrologists – e.g. Kepler) with the ultimate goal of understanding the “logos” behind all things which happen.

Astrology is actually astronomy with a care for humans.

Astronomy researches the “cold” universe. A cosmos void of consciousness. Astrology has human as its main subject of analysis.

We laugh at the idea of the stars affecting us. And yet we easily believe that a butterfly can affect the other side of the world by swinging it’s wings…

We laugh at the things astrology says, but astrology can be falsifiable much more easily than most astronomical theories can (e.g. parallel universes, Big Bang etc).

Science with a care for humans. This is what we need.

Not the cold “data analysis” science we have today.

    “And yet we easily believe that a butterfly can affect the other side of the world by swinging it’s wings…”
    Popular quote, that is derived from chaos theory, which is an area of mathematics, which has nothing to do with astronomy.

    “We laugh at the things astrology says, but astrology can be falsifiable much more easily than most astronomical theories can (e.g. parallel universes, Big Bang etc).”
    How about you present any evidence whatsoever to support astrology? Because there is none. There is plenty of evidence for the Big Bang. Parallel universa are something entirely different, and most people who are serious about them agree their existences are very hard if not impossible to falsify. That one particular model is considered an ill-supported one. Hence, astronomers do not use that model to support their own. Not all models are equal, and proper scientists know that.

    That being said,I’m not impressed with the state of science that’s actually supposed to care for humans- psychology.
    Even psychology has underlying materialistic assumption.
    And remember what Nietzsche had to say about materialistic worldview…
    How will psychology deal with depression epidemics largely caused by the same materialistic worldview?

    Astrology is phenomenological, and I can appreciate that. I’m not impressed with the reigning cosmological paradigm.
