What people think indeed about Astrology

Leonard Susskind, the professor of theoretical Physics at Stanford University:

…There is a philosophy that says that if something is unobservable – unobservable in principle – it is not part of Science. If there is no way to falsify or confirm a hypothesis, it belongs to the realm of metaphysical speculation, together with astrology and spiritualism. By that standard, most of the Universe has no scientific reality – it is just a figment of our imaginations…

Climate in astrological Terms

Picture P62The situation is getting almost crazy and looks like that only someone very lazy does not discuss the global warming. I have also decided to put my two cents in the discussion and add my own idea on this point… An astrological idea, of course, that the precession – the change in orientation of the Earth’s rotational axis – can significantly affect the Earth’s climate. To explain we should begin with Greek philosopher and scientist Aristotle, who was the only authority in Science for nearly two millennia. Continue reading

Numbers in Space: the Titius–Bode law

No solid theoretical explanation underlies the Titius–Bode law, but so far this regularity remains one of most curious in Astronomy. Besides, it has a rather interesting story.

Strictly speaking, the first mention of a series approximating the Titius–Bode law was found in David Gregory’s The Elements of Astronomy published in 1715. In it he says, “…supposing the distance of the Earth from the Sun to be divided into 10 equal parts, of these the distance of Mercury will be about 4, of Venus 7, of Mars 15, of Jupiter 52, and that of Saturn 95…” Continue reading

Spring… Just a short astrological note

Beyond the Blue Horizon 

If you follow a daily column with 12 paragraphs of astrological predictions, please be aware that, of course, Sun plays a huge role in our life and, accordingly, in horoscope, but for us, as we are all inhabitants of the “sublunar world”, the location of Moon in horoscope has no less importance… Jupiter is the main planet in our Solar system and, I would say, more powerful in Astrology than Sun… Some sources say (and I find this opinion very interesting) that in fact Neptune in horoscope shows who we really are… Continue reading

Astrologer Suidas, Astronomer Halley, and other stargazers…

Picture P60Ho and Hi, the Drunk Astronomers

“Here lie the bodies of Ho and Hi,

Whose fate, though sad, was visible;

Being slain because they could not spy

Th’ eclipse which was invisible…”

The story of Ho and Hi may be a real or fiction since its author is unknown. However, it refers to the Solar Eclipse of 2136 BC or 2159 BC: the royal astronomers Ho and Hi were drunk and failed to predict the eclipse, so that the people did not prepare to drive away the dragon which caused the eclipse. The astronomers lost their heads… There are different ways to become famous. Continue reading

February 26 Solar Eclipse in USA

Fast and Furious

At first let’s check the previous chart

https://astrologicdiary.wordpress.com/2016/08/11/september-1-solar-eclipse-in-usa/

My teacher in Astrology said that mundane charts should be very simple in interpretation and in many cases they are very close to the “accurate” meaning of what is happening. It really so with this chart, now we know its exact interpretation Continue reading

February 26 Solar Eclipse in Predictive Astrology

Picture P58

The annular Solar Eclipse through the clouds

There is an unwritten law that the history always continues from that point where it once stopped. I think we can get more interesting results in Astrology if we consider a chart not as something individual but as a logical step of the previous one. Accordingly, I would like to recall the chart with 19N Solar Eclipse in Russia https://astrologicdiary.wordpress.com/2016/08/04/september-1-annular-solar-eclipse-in-predictive-astrology/

I will not describe all the events that might confirm this chart really worked. I would say we have a sufficient number of them, and if you follow the world news, you certainly know. So, 19S Eclipse is the next chapter in our history.  Continue reading

February 26 Annular Solar Eclipse: 19S

Picture P57Normally the End does not occur in one minute of the last day… 🙂 especially if we are talking about a cycle where the End may take quite a long period and even can be divided into several parts.

In the Saros cycle at least 3 Solar Eclipses symbolize the End: 18S, 19N and 19S. Currently we are passing through 19N period https://astrologicdiary.wordpress.com/2016/07/28/september-1-annular-solar-eclipse/ and approaching 19S Solar Eclipse which will take place on February 26, 2017.

What were the most memorable events over the last few months? As to me, I am still under the big impression on: Continue reading

Christmas gift: Christmas star and crescent Moon

Picture P56Beginning in December and through most of 2017 we will have several comets to view. The first of them we are able to see is Comet with the enigmatic name Honda-Mrkos-Pajdusakova. This periodic comet returns to the inner solar system every 5.25 years. It appeared low on the western horizon on December 15th and by the 21st it already appeared almost as Christmas star with a bluish-green head and the fan-shaped tail. On New Year Eve this Comet and the crescent Moon will rendezvous to say farewell to 2016… Believe the last celestial performance 2016 promises good luck in the coming year 🙂 Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
