Astrology – A Traditional Perspective

western or European Astrology originated in Babylonia around 200 BC, the earlier phase of Astrology in Europe from 1200 to 1700 is defined as Traditional Astrology. While the time period, 1200 to 1500, is known as Medieval Astrology, and the period from 1500 to 1700, is called Renaissance Astrology.

Over the 2,000 periods from the Greeks to the Renaissance, Astrology exhibited excellent continuity and flourished until it eventually went of style as a consequence of new found concepts, along with brand-new materialism around the late 17th and 18th Centuries.

The emphasis of Traditional Astrology was on the outer planets, rather than Psychology, a science that did not come into existence until the late 20th Century. Traditional Astrology was able to offer accurate and precise predictions of events to occur, by utilizing several strategies perfected and passed down by thorough observation of the heavens and planets.

The Planets equated to celestial events and Gods were found for omens, where most cultures observed the heavens for signs and omens but Babylonian Religion was astral based. Traditional Astrology differs from contemporary Astrology, where in its newest form character analysis and psychological insight is more significant than predicting future events.

A renewed interest in the Esoteric Sciences began just as before around the 1900’s, and Astrology came to be examined once again. Although Modern Astrology is good for the groundwork of a character analysis, it can’t predict with the perfection of Traditional Astrology. Also Sun sign Astrology created in the mass media has given Astrology a poor reputation, because people do not believe one twelfth of a column can be equated to hundreds of men and women at one period of time.

Astrology has hence been viewed as a skeptical science, because most women start treating it as an amusement, and also do not realise that a real Natal Chart can not only supply a very important tool for predicting impending events but pinpointing fortuitous times. The majority of people even if they’re open-minded, might definitely be doubtful of Astrology’s real accuracy. Nonetheless, nearly all men and women provided with a personal chart reading will be blown away by its precision.

Modern Astrology has a very good insight into someone’s psyche, particularly when someone is in need of counselling following a personal tragedy or in need of individualized remedy on their own or someone close. However are most individuals remotely interested in recognizing the enhancement of their own private Psychological make up?

Traditional Astrology is broken into 4 primary types, firstly Natal astrology that examines and predicts events determined by a real birth chart. Then there is Horary Astrology what looks at a horoscope at a specific time, asking a certain question.

Next comes, Electional Astrology, that examines the best times and dates astrologically with regards to some issue. Finally Mundane Astrology makes use of an assortment of methods to foresee functions on a national scale, or over a lengthy time frame including weather predictions.

A lecture by John Frawley about Traditional Astrology stated that tradition is simply not about a restrictive following of a few strict old regulations, but about understanding and maintaining the spirit of the act and adapting it to modern Astrology. William Lilly, in his time tested various “modern” techniques which because of his rigorous (Saturnine) thinking led him to the correct results. What an impressive confirmation of the standard approach in our complex contemporary world.
