The junk astrology dilemma

Just because an object is in the sky doesn’t automatically give it astrological status.

And just because an event can’t be explained by what’s in a chart doesn’t mean a non-astrological marker has to be manufactured to explain it.

Piscean Age astrologers were good at this.

They lacked critical analysis and were unable to distinguish between a functional and non-functional astrological effect.

And any non-functional astrological effect is junk astrology.

Astrology in the Age of Pisces

The Age of Pisces was scientifically unsophisticated and the astrologers in particular lacked a scientific mind-set.

But, to be fair, they did work under difficult circumstances.

They had an untested theory that life on Earth was influenced by signals from the sky and a horoscope that they used as a reference point.

They did not view the chart as a map of powerful thought forces that existed within the soul.

Rather, they saw it as a map of astrological and mystical symbols that caused events – that just seemed to happen.

They did use the 12 zodiac signs, but with 7 planets and inaccurate reference books the charts they constructed were hopelessly unreliable.

So, in order to overcome this technical inadequacy, they introduced a variety of manufactured, non-astrological parts and points into their astrological work. And these manufactured parts are still around today.

Non-functional junk astrology is used by fortune-teller type astrologers.

It aids their psychic faculties to divine the future.

But the idea that everything in the sky automatically has an astrological influence on life and that there are non-astrological parts also influencing the proceedings ran the risk of having the birth chart cluttered with junk astrology.

Aquarius and the age of science

Your birth chart must only display astrological markers that have had their influence rigorously tested by scientific investigation.

And the only way to determine if an object in the sky or a manufactured part is having an astrological influence is to test it out.

So Aquarian age astrologers trained in the scientific method accepted the challenge to investigate and test all the astrological beliefs handed down by time to determine what was, and what wasn’t, junk astrology.

And after years of testing they learned that our predecessors used horoscopes that were jam-packed with junk that had no function or influence on life.

Astrology today

Our predecessors were indiscriminant in cluttering up their charts with junk astrology.

The precious functional astrology was there, but there was too much non-functional junk.

And unfortunately there’s too much junk astrology around today.

Many consider the Moon’s Nodes, the Part of fortune, the sensitive Arabian Points, Asteroids such as Ceres and Juno and the fixed stars to have a functional influence in astrology, but they don’t.

And neither do Chiron, Vulcan, Transpluto and midpoints.

And because meticulous research has found that all these parts and points are non-functional junk astrology they’re not used in the Hermetic system.

It only uses a birth chart that displays 12 zodiac signs, the Sun, Moon and eight planets.
