The science community traditionally views astrology as a pseudoscience,
but researchers have begun to publish findings indicative of a correlation between
patients experiencing specific types of mental health disorders and the time of year
of the patient’s birth.

This research was discussed in an article published in the July 2011 edition
of Psychology Today, somewhat humorously titled: “Science Confirms Astrology!
Not really. But those Pisces have something fishy going on” [1]. In it the author
assures the reader that he still does not believe in astrology but acknowledges that
a statistically significant number of patients being treated for conditions such as
schizophrenia and bipolar disorder share the same birthday months.

I have only a limited knowledge of the research being done by these
scientists, but it is my understanding that their findings of a correlation between
date of birth and personality type is being presented as something new.

But the concept of one’s birth date predetermining the presence of specific
personality traits has been a universally accepted belief in Astrology dating back to
its beginnings in the 3rd millennium BC.

Throughout Astrology’s long history, a spherical coordinate system
database was built recording the three-dimensional positions of each astronomical
body relative to points designated by longitude and latitude on earth.

Drawing on this database the Astrologer can recreate the celestial
arrangement of the planetary bodies for specific locations and times and draw on
a history of observed character traits associated with those born on that day of year.

Though the science-based fields of study consider astrology to be
pseudoscience lacking any basis in the hard disciplines, it is in fact one of the first
fields of science to be explored in depth by ancient cultures and played a significant
roll in the development of today’s fields of astronomy, physics, and mathematics.

For example, still in use for calculating planetary orbits around the Sun,
Kepler’s Three Laws of Planetary Motion [1] were developed between 1609 and 1619
by Johannes Kepler, a German astronomer, astrologer, mathematician, and
natural philosopher. The words astronomer and astrologer were used
interchangeably during Kepler’s time, and universities who taught the subject
during that period identified it as Astrology.

So why is it that despite astrology’s long history of contributions to science
it is now looked on by that community as a pseudoscience lacking compatibility
with modern physics.

I suspect that is at least in part because of its’ two-part nature. While
Astrology is a science, what an Astrologer does in the practice of Astrology is an

Unaware of a scientific base for Astrology, ordinary people see nothing
more than a collection of beliefs based on a scenario where planets and planetary
bodies orbiting the sun in some way play a role in how they live our lives.

Physical evidence of celestial body interaction with earth is available on a
daily basis if one knows where to look. In the text that follows I will discuss that
evidence and use the principles of Conventional Science’s Electromagnetic Wave

Physics as a model for the operating principles behind the interactions between us
and the celestial.

Astrology’s Operating Parameters

Astrology is a process of cause and effect, the cause being the wave energy
dynamics of the planetary body’s composite energy fields bathing the earth and
those on it. The fact that it is a wave energy field not visible to the naked eye or
measurable with the standard test equipment justifies the dismissal of Astrology
by some as a belief that is lacking a physics-based methodology that illustrates the
manner in which planets at a distance impact the lives of people on Earth.

Satellites in orbit around the earth have been transmitting data collected by
that satellite, or relayed from other satellites, via RF Waves since the early days of
the Space Age. As a result, the earth is now immersed in a RF Cloud made up of
radio frequency electromagnetic wave energy propagated by the RF devices
(satellites) in space.

Comparable to the RF Cloud, there is what I have come to refer to as the
Celestial Energy Cloud, or CE Cloud for short. The CE Cloud is made up of a yet to
be defined form of energy that is associated with each of the planetary bodies in

But how do we know that this cloud exists if it is “a yet to be defined form of
energy” that we are unable to provide a description for the form of the energy that
it is made up of?

Because there are multiple examples of its’ effects on Earth, one of which is
the daily changing ocean tides.

As the moon orbits the earth its “gravity” attracts the water directly below,
and the tide rises. As the moon passes on, the strength of the gravity force
diminishes, the water level of the ocean drops, and the “tide goes out”.

For an example of a planetary gravity interaction over an even greater
distance, Jupiter, a planet that is roughly five times as far away from Earth as the
Earth is from the sun, wields a sufficiently strong gravitational force to warp
Earth’s orbit into a shape more elliptical than circular.

Science labels the yet to be defined force interacting between Jupiter and
Earth “gravity”. As an effect it is measurable and an object’s gravitational
magnitude accurately calculated, but the source of gravity has yet to be identified
or defined by science. We can measure it and predict its effects very well because
past data collection provided enough information that math equations were
developed for calculating the effects generated by whatever source, proving that it
is real and operates over vast distances.

Then there are the numerous astronomical radio sources that have been
identified, objects in outer space that emit strong radio waves that we now monitor,
some that have been identified as coming from a source billions of light years away.

Knowing that the planetary bodies emit the energy field associated with
gravitational effects, radio signals, etc., it is no great leap to accept that whatever
the form of this energy, it also likely to be the source of the influences on the human
energy field recorded in the Astrological database.

A form of energy not directly measurable by instrumentation, but whose
presence is observable is demonstrated by research done on how waveform energy
in the form of thought can have impact on the growth of ice crystals in a controlled
environment. This has been demonstrated in lab experiments done by Dr. Radin
and company. [3]

In these experiments it is was found that the water molecule’s energy fields
could be altered through a sympathetic vibration process of thoughtform energy
projected from a distance onto material water molecules in the process of forming
water crystals resulted in changes in their physical form.

Just as the wave energy pattern of thought in those experiments altered the
composite energy field of the water, the complex energy patterns produced by the
collection of elements and energies of the celestial objects that radiate outward to
eventually reach the Earth, will, though the process of sympathetic vibration alter
the CE Cloud of composite energy field of this planet that our consciousness is
immersed in.

Because it is not just one planet whose patterns of radiating energy reach
the Earth, but the radiating energy of numerous celestial bodies and smaller
objects in space whose relative bearing from earth is in constant change, the CE
Cloud is a constantly evolving complex composite pattern of energy altering the
Earth’s energy field also through the sympathetic vibration process.

To illustrate how changes in the relative positions of the galactic energy
sources change the energy patterns in the CE Cloud, the first image is of the
composite pattern created by three signal sources lined up on single line, a zero
angle, each radiating a circular pattern.

If both the end sources moved together on one side, the overall pattern
would change creating a greater concentration of energy on the side that they
moved to, as in the second image.

Changes in the angles by which the waves of energy patterns coming from
the planets alter the form of the patterns in the CE Cloud and are the source of the
changes in the effects triggered in our consciousness’, health, emotions and
thought processes.

There have been studies done on the effects of being immersed in external
energy fields and how they affect health and personalities.

One example is the Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) generated by high tension
power lines[5]. There is evidence that suggests that to some extent, living within the
EMF generated by these power lines contributes to cancer, it is not certain but
according to research and publications put out by the World Health Organization
(WHO), EMF from power lines can also cause headaches, fatigue, anxiety and/or

Individual/CE Cloud Interaction
Neuroscience and Psychology work with a model of the human mind as
being made up of two independently functioning components, the subconscious
and the conscious. The latter, a field of bioenergy produced by synapses firing
between specialized cells in the brain. When the conscious is combined with the
subconscious, a mind is produced capable of exercising cognitive functions and
enabling us to do such things as obtain food, seek shelter, procreate, and when
necessary, react to outside stimuli with the flight or fight response.

According to this model, the human mind resides in the volume of space
occupied by the biological brain mass. Without it there can be no mind, and with
no mind no cognitive functions performed.

But the single cell amoeba, Arcella demonstrates that consciousness can and
does exist independently of a physical brain, that consciousness it is an energy field
linked to a biological mass, not generated by it.

  • As the name indicates, the Arcella is a single cell consisting of a nucleus
    encased in an outer layer of tissue called a “test”. It has no brain, no nerves, no
    synapses to fire, and yet it demonstrates much of the same functionality with
    respect to consciousness and reasoning abilities that mammals do.
  • Some kinds of Arcella collect sand particles that they attach to the “test” to
    create a protective shell.
  • It can extend pseudo pods to act like feet, legs and arms, giving it the ability to
    move about and manipulate its environment.
  • Feeding on plankton and diatoms present in the water where it lives, it can
    sense whether the particles it encounters are suitable for food, rejecting things
    like sand particles. When it finds a suitable food particle, such as plankton, it
    uses the pseudo pods to draw it in, then surrounds and consumes it.
  • It has an awareness of its orientation and possesses the ability to right itself if
    it becomes inverted by exuding gas bubbles along one side, lifting that side up
    until it can flip over. It then reabsorbs the bubbles.

All these actions are indicative of a fully capable functioning mind or
consciousness. But, if there are no physical attributes in this single cell like that of
the human brain, no synapses to fire, and no nervous system to conduct commands
from the nonexistent brain, where does it do its thinking?

The only rational explanation is that the amoeba’s consciousness is not
physical, but a discrete packet of energy capable of awareness of its surroundings and with the ability to manipulate the organic mass of its single cell through a
nonphysical energy source.

If consciousness was limited to a set of organically generated
electrochemical signals flowing along physical pathways within a fixed organic
mass, then forces from distant planets that I suggest interact with the mind would
have no more effect on brain cells than the moon’s pull on the ocean that creates
the tides.

Electroencephalography (EEG) is a method used by the medical community
to record an electrogram of the spontaneous electrical activity of the brain. The
complex energy waveform patterns generated by the brain as the cognitive
functions of the brain play out their part produce a dynamic display of sinusoidal
wave energy through sensors placed on the person’s skin, indicating that the
consciousness field extends outward from the brain to at least the surface of the
body, making it subject to influence by the CE Cloud.

While in development in the mother’s body the fetus’s developing field is
shielded from that field, and so until the moment of birth shielded from influence
by planetary alignments.

But immediately post birth the baby is no longer shielded within the mother
and whatever composite pattern of energy that exists at that physical location at
that time merges with the forming conscious, subconscious, body-mind of the
infant, performing the initial programming of what becomes the personality aspect
of the mind.

The real value provided by Astrology is its ability to recreate an accurate
picture of the conditions presented by the CE Cloud at the precise moment that full
activation of our consciousness occurs as we move outside of the shielding of our
birth mother.

Since the energy field that a given area is immersed in at a given time will
be constant with respect to its composite energy pattern, two children delivered by
separate mothers at the same hospital at the same point in time will have been
subjected to the same initial programming and have birth charts which are
virtually identical.

It would be reasonable then to assume that people with identical birth
charts respond to changes in astrological alignments in the same way, but they
don’t always, and sometimes the responses are significantly different.

Why is that? It is because the human mind is a Triad, a combination of three
independent fields of energy.

1. An Energy Body, a field of energy formed as a collective of the fields present
in every living cell of the physical human body. Each cell possesses an
individual governing consciousness functioning independently of a brain,
as is demonstrated when sections of skin placed in nutrients grow into a new
epidermis for use as skin grafts.

2. The subconscious, an individualized fragment of Jung’s Group

3. The conscious, a “Discrete” consciousness (Soul or Spirit in some belief

That children born at the same place and time and sharing similar social
and environmental conditions exhibit differences in how they respond to changes
in Astrological conditions during their lives is due to the individuality of the
Discrete Conscious portion of the mind.

Jung postulated that the subconscious portion of the mind was based the
past collective experience of the human race, and did not vary between individuals,
but the conscious portion of the mind did vary.

This is the area of astrology on which significantly different opinions are
held. Is the mind of child at the moment of birth a blank slate with respect to
personality, so children with identical birth charts will be programmed identically?

Or does the newborn come with a set of memories and experiences from past lives
that will influence how it responds to personal experiences in this life, and be a
factor in how it exercises the freewill aspect of this mind?

While evolution as an individual through a series of incarnate and
discarnate periods has been an accepted concept in much of the world, in the West
it has not been so. But in recent decades there has been serious research into this
area by scientists like Dr. Ian Stevenson, a psychiatrist at the University of Virginia
School of Medicine, and Jim Tucker, professor of psychiatry and neurobehavioral
science at the University of Virginia.

Stevenson’s research centered on collecting and examining cases of children
“Typically, between the age of 2 and 4 (with a mean age of 35 months) such
children start talking about their previous life, often speaking about the events that
led up to their death, and sometimes using the present tense as if their previous
life was still continuing. In some cases, Stevenson was able to identify the person
the child claimed to be and to verify the information by speaking to relatives of the

Since Stevenson’s death, other researchers have followed his lead. Now
around 2500 reports of children’s past-life memories have been studied. Research
has shown that normally the children’s reported previous lives ended prematurely
and unnaturally, often involving violence, suicide, or an accident. In almost three-
quarters of cases, the “previous personality” (in the term coined by Stevenson) died
relatively young. A quarter died before the age of 15. On average, the previous
personalities died four-and-a-half years before the birth of the children with whom
they were associated “[4].

Because none of this past life information can be taken into account when
projecting how an individual will respond to astrological changes, the accuracy of
projecting what an individual’s reactions to events will be will vary with the
individual. This unfortunately causes some to dismiss astrology’s value as a tool.

An area that I see little discussion of is astrology’s value for predicting the
actions of large groups, such as the members of an individual community or

What has little variance amongst the minds formed at birth is the
subconscious, so the planetary energies will produce consistency in the ways that
the group mind responds, frequently functioning as a mob mentality. This
commonality of emotion driven actions within a group can be projected very
consistently though astrology.

To Summarize

Those born at the same time, day, and place, sharing the CE Cloud as it
exists at that point, will exhibit some commonality in how they respond to the
Astrological Aspects, but there will still be differences in their reactions.
Various belief systems hold that we all participate in a periodic cycle of
discarnate and incarnate states of being. If the past lives experienced by our
Discrete Consciousness are added to the equation, then individuals, regardless of
similarity in birth conditions astrologically, will possess a different collection of
experiences, lessons learned, or not learned, and will tend to react to external
stimuli in ways that vary with the individual.
To document what form of energies are present and their possible effects on
a client due to the planetary positionings, the astrologer will prepare a chart (a
circle divided into 12 segments) that represent the planetary placements of the sun,
moon, planets, etc. relative to the physical location of the mother/baby at the
moment of birth.

Referred to as an individual’s birth or natal chart, from it an astrologer can
see what astrological influences the individual was subjected to at birth, use it to
discover what influences the individual is being subjected to at present, and to
forecast the influences they will be subjected to at a future date and place.

Using an individual’s birth chart for forecasting an individual’s probable reactions to
events can be done with some accuracy, but inferring the probability and magnitude of that individual’s response is more of a challenge for the Astrologer, and like any profession, the Astrologer’s level of experience and aptitude will play a part in the accuracy of the projections.

As discussed above, persons born on a given date, time, and location, such as twins in a
maternity ward will have birth charts that are nearly identical, but may react to the natural progression of changes in planetary alignments differently due to their past lives experiences.

Astrological projections are based on just one of many factors involved
in the cause-and-effect process of celestial energies interaction with human
consciousnesses, not all responses to those energies will be same, and not every
astrologer shares the same level of ability, all of which calls into question how
accurate a forecast can be made from a natal chart.

So what is the value of astrology as a practice?

I view it as like checking the weather report before planning my day. If rain
is in the forecast, then bringing an umbrella seems wise. If the forecast drawn from
the chart for my physical area indicates that the group consciousness will be likely
to be in an aggressive mood, then I will be more watchful for signs of irritation in
those who I will interface with that day.

That it is of value for some areas of business is demonstrated by how some
who invest in the stock market have found its use to be very profitable.

The decision of whether or not astrology as a tool is of sufficient value in
one’s life that it should be made use of is a personal one, but as I have attempted
to show here, the driving forces of astrology are natural law, and as a field of science
should be respected accordingly.
