Words of wisdom... Astrology of Enlightenment's beginnings

          In the vision of Albert Einstein, a genius of his time:

"Astrology is a science in itself and contains an illuminating body of knowledge. It taught me many things, and I am greatly indebted to it. Geophysical evidence reveals the power of the stars and the planets in relation to the terrestrial. In turn, astrology reinforces this power to some extent. This is why astrology is like a life-giving elixir to mankind."

         Louise Pasteurremembered for his remarkable breakthroughs in the causes and preventions of disease, also saw a relationship between the stars and our world: 

"The controls of life are structured as forms and nuclear arrangements, in a relation with the motions of the universe."

            One of my favorite, most simple quotes, is one written by J.P. Morgan, a billionaire, who was, in his time, the richest man in the world:

"Millionaires don't have astrologers, billionaires do."

          As for Edgar Cayce, who was believed to be the founder of the New Age movement greatly influencing its teachings, he believed that:

"The planets exert astrological vibrations upon our bodies that influence our personalities and soul patterns. At the subconscious (soul) level, the solar system is our larger body. We are connected to the planets, the stars, spiritual realms and entities. On the superconscious (spirit) level, we are one with the Whole. At this level, we are on a conscious level with all there is - the divine."

       Arthur C. Clarke, a British science fiction author, inventor, and futurist, most famous for the novel 2001: A Space Odyssey, wrote a rather funny truism about astrology also:

"I don't believe in astrology; I'm a Sagittarius and we're skeptical."

          Hippocrates, creates an intriguing relationship between medicine and the universe at large, that for today's physicians may seem rather strange: 

“A physician without a knowledge of Astrology has no right to call himself a physician”

          Another great personality of our recent history, Carl G. Jung, had this to say about the field of astrology in relation to his life work, psychology:

"Astrology is of particular interest to the psychologist, since it contains a sort of psychological experience which we call projected - this means that we find the psychological facts as it were in the constellations. This originally gave rise to the idea that these factors derive from the stars, whereas they are merely in a relation of synchronicity with them. I admit that this is a very curious fact which throws a peculiar light on the structure of the human mind."

         Benjamin Franklin, also a great astrologer, has actually used astrology to pick the best astrological day to sign the Declaration of Independece on, and he speaks of astrology in this these words: 

"Courteous Reader,  Astrology is one of the most ancient Sciences, had in high Esteem of old, by the Wise and Great. Formerly, no Prince would make War or Peace, nor any General fight a Battle, in short, no important Affair was undertaken without first consulting an Astrologer, who examined the Aspects and Configurations of the heavenly Bodies, and mark'd the lucky Hour. "

         As a last piece of wisdom for this post, comes from an American philosopher, lecturer, essayist, and poet, best remembered for leading the Transcendentalist movement, called Ralph Waldo Emerson, that said that: 

 "Men should take their knowledge from the Sun, the Moon and the Stars."
