Good day, fellow Alchemists:
It is no secret, Alchemist, that the Universe is filled with chaotic vibrations that affect us in a variety of ways. Sometimes they even influence us to such a degree as to determine our moods and change our behavior.
But there is an order to this chaos.
All throughout the galaxy, cosmic bodies revolve around one another in an intricate dance that propels their own unique frequencies, spreading them down to us on earth to stimulate our consciousness.
This is why astrology is such an impactful subject. By studying the cycles of planets around our solar system, astrologers have the ability to predict the effects they will have on individuals and society as a whole. In the astrology system, people's birthdate and time determine certain aspects of their personality and their compatibility with other people. While nowadays it is treated as pseudoscience, astrology was once viewed as an insightful source of knowledge that many scientists adamantly believed in.
In fact, astrology is not the only study of planetary and natural cycles. Feng Shui and Five Element Theory also classify the effects of natural forces and how they shape a person or place. In Chinese culture, people tend to only take important actions on auspicious days that correspond to positive cosmic energies. Feng Shui takes it a step further and helps architects, city planners, and interior designers with arranging the environment to accommodate for these external forces.
Even the Egyptian Pyramids were built with the stars in mind, with the Great Pyramid of Giza being aligned with the Orion constellation. Just about every culture contains wisdom on the forces of nature affecting our daily lives and how to both mitigate the negative aspects and use the positive ones to our advantage.
Alignment is the key to living in harmony with yourself and others.
By being aware of your own energetic influences and those of the people around you, you can utilize your own power to the fullest.
With love and sincerity,
