Moon, the Solar System Administrator

Picture P85Dedicated to International Observe the Moon Night on October 28th

I have a non-scientific conjecture that the Moon appeared at that moment when the first man appeared on the Earth. Why not, it is quite possible to imagine how the God created the Moon after Adam had been departed from the Garden of Eden, with words: Keep it, it will be useful if you are starting a separate life now…

However, the first known images of the moon phases on stones are about 15K years old. In the Babylonian clay tablets, the Moon is also constantly mentioned as “…Moon is our great mentora measure of our Time…” In ancient Babylon the Moon was so revered that it was common to track the changing seasons by following the lunar month rather than the solar year. Maybe that is why the age of the people in prehistoric time can number hundreds of “years”. Continue reading

How the City of a thousand planets looks like

Am I the only one here who likes Valerian and the City of a thousand planets? 🙂 Objectively, the film’s rating is not very high… But without any special sense, I just like it visually. I generally like sci-fi films, they are interesting in that they give an opportunity to observe how the human brain develops. According to the recent studies, the human brain cannot invent something by itself, in its activity it uses only the information that already received, like the computer. Everything that your brain shows you in a dream or real life, you have somewhere seen or heard. For example, you have a nightmare with a horrible stranger… Make no doubt, you saw his face, maybe on the street, or in a film, or in a picture in a book… Maybe many years ago… but your brain fixed this image and now, you are welcome, it offers you to take a look. So that, our brain invents nothing but it can manipulate images; probably, it is the best manipulator in the universe. As a matter of fact, due to these manipulations it can develop, learn something new and make discoveries. The absolutely weak point in our brain is that in most cases the brain practically cannot comprehend what it has never met before. Continue reading

The raccoon is guilty of everything…

Picture P80This is not an astrological post but it is referring to the question which, in one form or another, we encounter almost every day. I decided to write it after the film Wakefield in the original, in Russia this film goes under the name The raccoon is guilty of everything… sounds curious, does not it? In total, this post is my own experience I would like to share; my two cents that maybe one day will help someone.

As I wrote many times, changes are always an integral part of our existence but the main problem is that they occur unevenly. You may feel that your partner, in business or your private life, is becoming a little different but you still remain the same and do not want to see any changes. Or you may aspire to something new but this causes irritation of others. Unfortunately, conflicts are inevitable.

I have only 3 rules on this point, they are very short and simple, although, sometimes it is not easy to follow them 🙂 nevertheless Continue reading

VUCA Astrology in VUCA World

Picture P50Summing up, I would say perhaps the case with November 8 Election Day was not one of most successful but it was certainly beneficial in terms of getting experience… To understand that the world is not the same anymore.

Technology has liberated our world and turned it into astounding VUCA world – volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous, where the level of changes is so high and the rate of changes is so quick… Where anyone is absolutely free to share and implement ideas or can do something unexpected and outlandish… Become a President, for example, not because you have appropriate knowledge or strong experience but just because you have… ideas to inspire this world and people… and people want to be part of your ideas.

Predictive Astrology: Possibility or Fiction

Picture P43Speaking about Predictive Astrology it would be better to refer to Archetypes and their enormous role in our everyday life: we never think of them, nevertheless we are unconsciously basing on Archetypes in all our steps and thoughts. They are an inseparable part we could not exist without and disappearance of Archetypes would mean the total destruction of the way of thinking. Despite some skeptics say Predictive Astrology as a phenomenon of Archetypes works in a similar way and as immortal as Archetypes themselves 🙂 in the sense that Astrology exists as long as there is our life.

One embarrassing question: What is Astrology now

Picture P26There is nothing permanent in this world, and Astrology seems to be a very good example: it was a part of Religion in the Age of Taurus, a part of Philosophy in the Age of Aries. Timid attempts to keep Astrology in the mainstream as a part of Science in the Age of Pisces completely failed… Probably because Astrology is not a science from that point as we understand our science.

Lost Ophiuchus

Picture P27Usually I try not to discuss Astrology with people who have to deal with Astronomy and find quite useless to talk about astronomical events with astrologers, amateurs or professionals, even though some of them demonstrate good astronomical skills. But from time to time various exceptions occur and one of them took place last summer when I visited a planetarium. I was going to see a film but unexpectedly met a local consultant and, that was completely surprising, our conversation somehow turned to the zodiac. Continue reading
