Astronomy and astrology have long been intricately coupled according to the famous astrologer in Kolkata. Not in the science oriented academia houses of the industrial west, but within the lot of subtle cultures of the east. Especially in India. Each astronomy and astrology consider the heavenly bodies, whereas, in general, astronomy considers the dynamics and qualities of the entities outside of the earth’s atmosphere, astrology studies the effects of those bodies here on earth. Especially the effect on we, the earth’s human bodies.
What will we tend to learn of ourselves?
Often as an individual’s being we are surrounded by uncertainty and lack of meaning. Our lives map an arc that can be seen as a search for that meaning, leading us if we are lucky for a seat among the wisdom of the elders. So as to help us in this search, and to help interpret the findings, we are aided by tools. Astrology is one such tool.
From the famous astrologers of Kolkata we know a number of the lot of complicated or unexplained behavior of the human species. The science of psychology, and therefore the newer developing sciences like behavioral economics that have their roots in other disciplines but end up teaching us much about our own behaviors. Often how unexpected the teachings are. so too with much that’s that is unproved .
So what will we learn from the stars?
Anybody who has been to a beach, or a fishing village, cannot fail to notice the oceanic detritus left by the high tides. The oceans are almost 3 quarters of the earth’s surface however this immense body of mass is still affected by the gravitational pull of the little heavenly body 240,000 miles away, the moon. an individual’s being is primarily the chemical consistency of water, so logic would have it that we too are subject to the gravitational pull of the moon. The word lunatic would account for this. So what concerns can it have an effect on from the planets? The orbit of Saturn around the sun is 29.5 years, maybe it’s a cosmic effect on us once it returns to its position of our birth nearly thirty years later. This is often known as the Saturn return, and significant to have an important impact astrologically.
Helping others is an excellent way of helping ourselves. Sympathy is an understanding of another’s context or pain, empathy an understanding of the other person’s emotional form that underlies that context or pain. However strong the empathy we have for another though, it’s still an internal feeling. Integral to ourselves. Empathy doesn’t, per se, help the other person. It will give us the vision, the understanding but it isn’t the tool that enables us to take action.
What then is that tool?
Sympathy, empathy and compassion.
If emotion is the emotion that’s needed as a stepping stone, what is it that we can use rationally, as well as emotionally?
Rational understanding of another’s position comes from external observations like an understanding of fairness and justice. An understanding of significance, the significance of the other person to themselves that is usually a reflection of their feeling of significance to their own contexts and surroundings. The tool for this understanding is compassion. Com: with; passion: well, several current meanings, but originally related to “patient”, the greatest of virtues.
Here we come full circle. Astrology helps us understand ourselves, if we permit it to according to the best astrologer in kolkata. Our own emotions, especially empathy, help us understand others and compassion allows us to take action to help others. However do we close the circle? Use these same tools to fix ourselves. How? Compassion, again.
Compassion turned back in on ourselves. Vulnerable to anger, fear, loss, low self esteem? fear of failure, or so fear of success? The process starts with self-understanding and ends in self compassion. All things inside us are fixable; they must be because the damage was usually ‘learned’ in the initial place.
