    The true religion is that which has always existed, which exists today, and will exist forever...

    The word “astrology” is derived from two Greek words: “astra,” meaning a star, and “logos,” meaning logic or reason. It literally implies the doctrine and law as shown by the stars and planets. Astrology is the science that defines the actions of celestial bodies upon animate and inanimate objects, and their reactions to such influences. Incidentally, the word “disaster” means, “against the stars”...

    Originally, all who studied the stars – including the prophets – were astrologers. The antiquity of astrology is such as to place it among the very earliest records of human learning. It is the parent of astronomy. At one time astrology and astronomy were one science, but now astronomy only deals with distances, magnitudes, masses, compositions, motions, speed, etc., and is founded upon observations made with various instruments...

    Therefore, astronomy may be termed a purely objective science, concerned as it is with the outer expressions of the stars and planets, i.e., their form or body...while astrology may be considered a subjective science, dealing with the influences of life within the form and its effect upon surrounding bodies – the Earth and its inhabitants in particular – and so may properly be termed the study of life's reactions to planetary vibrations...

    The scientific construction of a horoscope (The Creator’s plan for human development) is an astronomical process; it is the interpretation of the horoscope that is astrological...

    All religions are but roads to the same Place. It is only when some people say, “My road is the only road” that the pathway to the Place becomes blocked. The divisions existing between the various roads have been created – to a large extent – by the mind of man, even though many of these roads have been truly divinely inspired...

    These divisions have caused so much suffering – both on a personal and universal level – that it has become increasingly important for each of us to realize the essential Oneness of it all, no matter what one’s inherited religious dogma is...

    The truth is, however, all dogma is false in The Absolute, for dogma attempts to encapsulate Infinity. What a given religion does is adapt an aspect of the One for the level of consciousness and socio-economic structure of a particular race at a given moment in eternity... No path is the True Path, for in The Absolute there is no “truthfulness” or “falsehood”; no “right” and no “wrong”; no “yes” and no “no”...

    Yet what is mankind to do? We seek Light, and we need a doctrine to follow, even if it is one we make up ourselves. And somehow, in some vastly mysterious way, some Muslims, some Christians, some Jews, some Hindus, some Buddhists, and even some astrologers have found a connection to the One; have found some aspect of the Light – and exist in one degree or another in that Light...

    Many people have found the cosmic science of astrology to be a Path that enriches their lives. They have found through its cosmic conceptions a wider and more tangible road than many others on which they have traveled. They have also found that it leads them to increasingly more profound knowledge and truth...

    I do not in any way insist that this is the way it is, but rather the way certain events in life appear to be (to me). We must always endeavor to keep an open mind, however skeptical, for in the end we are alone – although definitely helped along as we go – until we merge with our Creator, the One Source of All Life...

    Permit me to say, dear people, that no grander or more soul-enobling theme has ever been presented to the human intellect than the philosophy and language of the Heavens. It opens to our inspection an endless volume of sublime grandeur...

    Whomever watches the beautiful planet Venus in her orbital march - with nothing except the philosophy of distance, time and motion to observe - will find a deep satisfaction beyond the mundane considerations of the materialistic life...

    Unto him who reads the language of the Heavens, and catches the inspiration of her loftier melodies, there is a positive charm and enchantment which makes every star a divinity, and lights all space with prophetic wisdom...

    It is the wise man who rules his stars, and the fool who blindly obeys them...

    The heavenly bodies predispose and influence (or impel), but they do not compel...

    The ancient African priest-astrologers knew that the angles planets make to each other in the Heavens cause effects and influences. The European priesthood of the Middle Ages, wishing to control the ignorant masses, personified the influences of planetary aspects and transposed the letters of the word “angle” to “angel,” and upon this deliberate act of mistransliteration, all the stupendous frauds of ecclesiasticism were built...

    "Philosophy is written in this grand book - I mean the Universe - which stands open to our gaze, but it cannot be understood unless one first learns to comprehend the language and interpret the characters in which it is written. It is written in the language of mathematics, and its characters are circles, triangles, and other geometric figures, without which it is humanly impossible to understand a single word of it. Without these, one is wandering about in a dark labyrinth."

    (Galileo Galilei - II Saggiatore 1623)

    The Bible verifies the cosmic science of astrology. This verification can be found in Psalms 19:1-4, which reads:

    “The Heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth His handiwork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the Earth, and their words to the end of the world.”

    "It is an inconsistency scarcely possible to be credited, that anything should exist - under the name of religion - that holds it to be irreligious to study and contemplate the structure of the Universe that God has made."

    (Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason, Prometheus Books, 1984, pp. 47-48)

    To deny the influence of the stars is to deny the Wisdom and Providence of God.

    (Tycho Brahe)
