Plato's Republic as described by Socrates to Glaucon 

"Anyone who has common-sense will remember that the bewilderment's of the eyes are of two kinds, and arise from two causes, either from coming out of the light or from going to the light, which is true of the minds eye, quite as much as of the bodily eye;

And he who remembers this when he sees anyone whose vision is perplexed and weak, will not be too ready to laugh; he will first ask whether that soul of man has come out of the brighter life, and is unable to see because unaccustomed to the dark, or having turned from darkness to the day is dazzled by excess of the light.

And he will count the one happy in his condition and state of being, and he will pity the other; or, if he have mind to laugh at the soul which comes from below into the light, there will be more reason in this than in the laugh which greets him who returns from above out of the light into the den."

Astrology's Ancient Past

By Gregory Clare ©

Amongst all the wonders of human development, the story of the Sky remains the most fascinating. The history of Astronomy/Astrology is tied to the evolution of humans and their development into so called ‘consciousness.’

We have been gazing upwards observing the heavens for many thousands of years.From the primordial cosmic forces of life dependent on Water, to the life necessities of Earth, 75,000 years ago Man’s essential journey into concisenesses began.


This epic moment in man’s evolution was his discovery and harnessing of Fire, (Creativity) together with the essential ingredient Air, (Thought). This astonishing breakthrough lead him to understand that he had a certain control over his destiny and more importantly gave him “Time” to ponder and to think while camped out under the Stars gazing upward. Hence his journey into consciousness began.


The cliché “As above so below’ describes the essence of this work. Astronomy/Astrology underwent two major changes in the course of some 3,000 years, the first of these changes and most important one occurred sometime between 400BC and 200AD. (The Hellenistic period)

This first epoch of time saw the advancement of technical theory and the refinement of practical application. The second epoch occurred around the 14th century through to the 17th century. (The Renaissance). The Hellenistic development emerged from the Egyptian/Greek period when Alexander the Great travelled on his conquests leaving the Greek language and culture as his legacy.

 

 

The Greeks quickly absorbed the best of the Cultures they encountered and from this Egyptian/Greek Culture arose the fore- runner of Western Astrology.


Horoscope Astrology encompassed a direct influence of Platonism and not only focused on prediction but had at its core a holistic philosophy. It was for the most part written and presented in an allegoric form.

The Greeks when they encountered the Egyptians learned quickly that concealing or hiding the Essence of this work was critical, so as to preserve the integrity of its Sacredness. This early work was indeed very spiritual and was designed to equip the neophyte with the tools for a complete life.

Astrology today for the general population can be best described as a study of human behaviour with the aim of achieving some sort of self awareness. Since the late 19th century early 20th Century when the humanistic movement emerged thanks to the psychologist Carl Jung,

Astrology moved towards a more psychological approach. The main focus for the contemporary Astrologer was directed towards counselling, dealing with clients with the aim to provide them with the tools required to move towards some sort of conscientious awareness.

The Astrologer studies the Birth Chart focusing on the more difficult areas and engages the client in conversation so as to assess the best way to deliver a suitable outcome.

Today’s astrologer generally holds some sort of accreditation in the field of counselling or psychology.
