The popular astrology that champions zodiac signs and fortune-telling is considered a pseudoscience. It’s an unorganized collection of unsubstantiated astrological beliefs; the wayward child of a once revered scientific endeavor that skilled practitioners used to ‘eavesdrop on cosmic secrets’.
Hermetic astrology is a standalone science which champions astro-data that’s been acquired through observation, meticulous research and the statistical analysis of birth charts. It’s a set of principles and procedures that are organized into a coherent set of teachings and rules.
Elbert Benjamine got the job. He was convinced that the secrets of astrology would yield to rigorous scientific investigation and there was so much to learn.
From 1915 to 1946 he asked a lot of questions and discovered what we didn’t know about astrology and the soul. He took ancient Hermetic beliefs and transformed them into Aquarian Age knowledge. He discerned nature’s most abstruse truths and wrote the new testament of astrology: The science of the soul and stars.
Your soul is who you are. It’s a thought built astral entity that exists on an astral plane. It acquires intelligence and ability through experience and is attached to your physical body by the psychokinetic power if its thoughts.
Its thought-structure defines your character and your life story is just your character doing its thing. Hermetic astrology’s teachings about your soul are the result of deep-dive investigative exploration of the astral soul-world and are the most comprehensive information of their type ever compiled.
You – the observer and objective thinker – are the most recent addition to your soul’s continually expanding consciousness. Human life bestows the priceless gift of self-consciousness.
Your stars are the planets and zodiac signs depicted in your birth chart. It’s a technology that’s calculated for your time, date and place of birth and the planet and sign data that defines its structure is based on the most up-to-date planetary data from organizations like the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
Your birth chart is a map of your soul’s thought structure. The planets by their sign and house locations and angular relationships reveal how your charcater has been formatted by experience. It depicts your character as a bundle of desire-urges and their associated attitude-motivations expressing in an environmental setting.
Your character was formed and developed in prehuman-impersonal lives and during your formative years the dynamic desires-urges that get you going acquired a special mode of expression through human life experience. And Hermetic astrology places great importance in understanding your conditioning by environment.
You’re here to develop intelligence and ability through experience and your life story is a series of events that are mapped in your birth chart. Your chart is not static – it moves and progresses – and major progressions time major events, minor progressions time minor events and transit progressions time inconsequential events.
Measurement is an integral part of modern science and Hermetic astrology provides a set of calculations that measure the strength and functional status of each planet, aspect, sign and house in your birth chart; and a set of calculations that measure the strength and functional status of major, minor and transit progressions.
The astrodyne, harmodyne and discordyne measurements are the most recent advancement in astrological science and make Hermetic astrology second to none. It has no rival.
