Our universe (also Cosmos) can be divided into three parts. We humans live here in the middle with our senses guiding us. When Alchemy is smaller than us, Astrology is the science of things that are bigger than us. These giant things are planets, single stars and star constellations, galaxies and all the bigger things till the infinity.

 

The principle of Correspondence, which is one of the seven principles of the Nature, together with the Emerald Tablet, guide us to understand that "which is below is like that which is above that which is above is like that which is below" (Three Initiates, 1912). This law was taught by Jesus in the Lord's prayer with term "on earth as it is in heaven" (Matthew 6:9-13).

 

The word "astrology" is a Greek term meaning "science of the stars". The Greek Zodiac, the basis of our modern standard systems was adopted from the Babylonian system. Ancient astronomers identified animals and mythical characters among the star constellations, some of which later became the 12 signs of the zodiac (Signs & Symbols, 2008). We can also state that the roots of the modern zodiac signs can be seen from the ancient Egyptian Dendera Zodiac, which was engraved to the roof of the Hathor temple in Dendera (Rogers, 1998; Markkanen, 2009).

 

In the astrology section, you will learn a few basic lessons about the world above, call it the sky or the heaven. The main lessons to learn from Astrology is how the Zodiac wheels can rotate in both possible ways and how the wheels are related to the time dimensions and the different eras of humanity.

 

The mental aspect of Astrology

First, a word of warning related to studying the mental aspect of Astrology. Leonardo da Vinci writes in his journals that whatever you are doing or studying, you should first get to know the theory. Studying the causes before the effects steps up the process of learning and understanding. Thus, it would be advisable to first understand the physical part of Astrology before trying to understand the mental part of it. However, it must also be understood that both sides of Astrology exists and are equal at the end.

 

The mental aspect of Astrology includes the knowledge about personal power animals and plants, together with the human subconscious mind. While there is a great deal to learn for those who are interested in taking this path, it is also an easy way to get lost and reject science and other sources of knowledge. As always – the truth is not any one extreme but the sum or the mean of a variety of sources.

 

The Principle of Mentalism of the Principles of Nature, including the mental aspect of Astrology, is also taught in House of Truth. To open your mind we remind you that even modern psychology teaches us about the different personality types. There is no way that we could deny the existence of the mental astrology, but, as always, the details are debatable.

 

Zodiac

In both astrology and historical astronomy, the Zodiac (Greek: ζῳδιακός, zōidiakos) is a circle of twelve 30° divisions of celestial longitude that are centered upon the ecliptic: the apparent path of the Sun across the celestial sphere over the course of the year.

The zodiac is the basic tool to understanding the wisdom of astrology. In addition to the 12 signs of the Zodiac described above, there are two other notable signs. Ophiuchus, also known as the Serpent carrier, and Cetus, also known as the Whale, Shark or Sea Monster.

 

The history of the Zodiac

This space map and calendar below guides you to the history of the Zodiac. This is an Egyptian sculptured zodiac called the Dendera Zodiac (or Denderah zodiac). It is a widely known Egyptian bas-relief on the ceiling of the pronaos (or portico) at a chapel dedicated to Osiris in the Hathor temple at Dendera.

 

 

In Dendera we find the same 12 signs, as in later Zodiacs, but there is still more to learn. The Dendera Zodiac is the key to understanding a lot of history, and in the studies of House of Truth this Zodiac will arise on a regular basis. E.g. it is related to the Roman Pantheon, the Stonehenge, and the Last Supper painting by Leonardo da Vinci.

 

Zodiac as a gearwheel

As we can learn in the Time dimensions article, the Zodiacs can be seen as giant gearwheels. These gearwheels have two different directions of rotation depending on the purpose it implements. The yearly Zodiac wheel runs counter-clockwise showing the months and seasons each year. However, when we wish to explore the Zodiac of Cosmic history, or the Great Year, the Zodiac wheel goes clockwise and represents the great seasons and aeons of the Great year (or the Platonic year).

You will soon have an understanding of the Zodiac as a tool for investigating wold's history and future.
