What Is Spiritual Astrology

Astrology was born not as a form of entertainment or as a scheme for fortune telling, but as a vital tool for survival. With the advent of agriculture, humans adapted their planting and harvesting routines to the dictates of the seasons. The measuring of time-the fluctuations in darkness and daylight, the arrivals of the winter and summer solstices, the great rivers' tides and flooding-became essential to a successful harvest. In our day and age, it is important to attune our lives to the repetitive rhythm of the seasons and the orbits of the planets.

The Merry-go-round of Astrology

The following is an excerpt from Cosmic Navigator by Gahl Sasson:

We’ve all heard the old postulate that humankind’s greatest invention is the wheel. I have always questioned that assumption. I guess it really depends on what wheel you’re talking about. If you mean the ox-cart, wheelbarrow wheel, I have to point out that the Maya, Inca, and many other cultures in the Americas prospered just fine without it. Master architects and astronomers, they built complex and sophisticated civilizations without... Read more

The Four Elements and Three Modalities

The Natal Chart: Your Divine Contract with God

The following is an excerpt from Cosmic Navigator by Gahl Sasson:

Astrology is not a fortune-telling tool. Our astrological chart is actually a spiritual con- tract that we signed with God and a constant reminder of our chosen path in life. That means that we cannot bellyache to God, our mothers, or anyone else that we don’t like our chart. We can’t loathe the fact that we have eight planets in the house of death or six planets in the house of suffering. We—and only we—created and agreed to it.... Read more

The Wedding of Astrology and Kabbalah: Stars and Spheres

The following is an excerpt from Cosmic Navigator by Gahl Sasson:

The author of Sefer Yetzirah —tradition suggests it was Abraham, the first mono- theist of the Old Testament—provides precise associations between the zodiac signs and the Hebrew letters, yoking astrology to the sacred letters of the Torah. This manuscript details how God deployed the archetypal energies of the ten-sphered Kabbalistic Tree of Life and the twenty-two Hebrew letters to create the universe (see chapter 5).

How I Became a Cosmic Navigator

The following is an excerpt from Cosmic Navigator by Gahl Sasson:

It was for this purpose that the stars and their planets were created. Through their cycles, all phenomena rooted in the spiritual realm are transmitted and reflected to their physical counterparts.
—Rabbi Chayim Moshe Luzzatto, The Way of God

I was twenty-three when I returned from a journey to India and the Far East. It was time, I thought, to settle down and choose a career path. Reared in an ultra- academic... Read more

Astrology as the Cosmic Clock

The Twelve Kingdoms of Light: The Myth of God’s Children and How the Zodiac Signs Got Their Groove On

The following is an excerpt from Cosmic Navigator by Gahl Sasson:

Astrology and Kabbalah can be fully understood when we shift our mind from its usual preoccupation with cause and effect, beginning and end, to the more authen- tic truth of cycles that continue round and round to eternity. The following myth of God’s children demonstrates the cyclical and eternal essence of astrology. There is no beginning and no end to any true system of symbolism. We might pinpoint Aries as the first sign and therefore the... Read more

The Zodiac and the Truth Behind Astrology

Astrology is one of the most ancient sciences, held in high esteem of old, by the wise and the great. Formerly, no prince would make war or peace, nor any general fight in battle, in short, no important affair was undertaken without first consulting an astrologer."
- Benjamin Franklin
