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 ©

We have been gazing upwards observing the heavens for many thousands of years in an attempt to find logic for our life on Earth. Astrology is a way to incorporate it all—the intangible and the tangible, the nonvisible and the visible. Amongst all the wonders of human development, the story of the sky remains the most fascinating.

Astrology is a symbolic language, which means we interpret and try to make sense of the symbolism and patterns made by celestial bodies. This language of the gods is rich and deep and has been studied for many thousands of years for the messages it contains.

The practical differences between the astrology of antiquity and today’s modern practice lie in the models we use to interpret what we see. From a modern viewpoint, astrology is a expression of archetypes, described as passive/subjective or active/objective. Growth comes through external experiences that cause us to examine our internal experience. From a Hermetic viewpoint, it is a rich allegorical story of symbolic expressions of the ancient gods.

To fully understand astrology and to use it in an everyday manner, we must first transcend time. In other words, we need to know as much as possible about the fundamental nature of the time period in which a horoscopic chart was first used.


The bombing of Baghdad during the first Gulf War drew attention to the possible destruction of ancient artefacts. The ensuing awareness spread across the globe and sparked an interest in all things ancient. This period coincided with the transit of Pluto through Scorpio.

As a result of this growing awareness, the 1990s witnessed a rush of “new” techniques which spread across the globe and infiltrated most astrological thought. From 2000 until 2006, the interest was mainly in understanding what were to modern astrologers new techniques and a new vocabulary, with little attention given to the underlying philosophy. In 2008, as Pluto moved into Capricorn, the focus shifted towards understanding what underpinned the source of Hellenistic astrology. We are now seeing the results of this study.

On 2 February 1993 at 08:05:09 hrs GMT, Greenwich, a conjunction of Uranus and Neptune occurred in the sign of Capricorn. Mercury also conjoined Saturn in Aquarius. This was a rare and rather unique moment, not only in human evolution, but in astrology as well. One only needs to cast this chart to understand its implications. This conjunction can be described as sudden enlightenment—ingenious spiritual experiences that for some may lead to fundamentalism, but for others could set in motion a realisation that is inspirational, spiritual and mystical.
