View Full Version : Formal definitions...

Hi any passers by. I'd had this question, and potentially food for thought, in the past week. Hadriana sounds like she could have an enlightening point of view on the matter and was going to ask her specifically however also noticed this was a perfect spot for this post. Diversity of feedback.
The question is based on the search for an agreed upon and accurate definition of astrology. It should include the basic premise that there may be a correlation between the physical structure of the universe and the psychology of the human individual, yes?
Anyone have their own working definition, a quotable reference source, or an inspired thought?

I don't believe in modern astrology, but I guess something like "The movements of heavenly bodies affecting human development and psychology". Not a very convincing definition... I could make one up that sounds better :)
"The interaction between heavenly bodies and human bodies effected by the quantum entanglement of all matter, along with the subtle aspects of gravitons impinging on the human psyche".
"A way to fill up a section of the paper with generic banalities"
interested in other's thoughts though, I have been wrong about many things ;)

Hi over by you Project. Astrology as encompassing those proposed influences too? Had not thought of it but it began to ring sorta right in my ears as a few moments went by. Thanks. It's due to points of view such as the ones you mentioned that made me wonder whether a formal definition has ever been adhered to. Laugh. Have a good night.

Just as there are seasonal changes as our planet goes around and around, so goes the galaxy complete with it's seasonal influences and events too. Astrology should stick to the study of galactic procession and not get into silly human psychic games of how this should determine when you should get married or how your luck will change for the better next year and all that personal fortune telling stuff that makes it seem so silly.

Huh. Yeah. The idea of a correlation between the physical structure of the universe and our very selves makes some sense at least at first glance and when stated in simplicity. Been wondering why it got the reputation that it did in some eyes. Maybe gross errors and not accurate enough. Don't know.
Psychology and civilization as seasonal. Funny. Also makes a kind of poetic sense.
One guy's opinion.

As all energy retains 'memories', it follows that perhaps where the planets are, and where the solar system is in relation to our galaxy, and our galaxy in relation to the Universe, etc., could have an effect on who and what we are/become; depending what energy created us from whatever part of the Universe. Do we retain not only our own energy with its memories, but also pick up new memory laden energy...? :thinking::headache:
