Let me begin this page with a tribute to a wonderful dear friend of mine, International Astrologer Paul Six. Paul was a tremendous blessing to be around and his words of wisdom and channelings served many people. Since he began his studies in 1974 and his practice in 1981, he travelled to the four corners of the globe, bringing the wisdom of astrology to thousands of individuals in 17 countries.
I had the great opportunity to get to know and study with him during his recent travels to Maui and the following astrological explanations are in his words:
Astrology is not a science; it is a language. It is communicating about energies that we cannot see, as these energies are invisible and intangible. Except for the Sun that shines upon us; the western system of astrology, no longer involves the stars. It did thousands of years ago before the human race had access to physics and mathematics; however our knowledge of the physical universe has grown. In the light of modern science, the ancient astrologers used a very primitive means of measuring the motions and rhythms of the solar system.
Astrology is a symbol system. It is not something to believe in, the way one places faith in a religious doctrine. It is a source of information that has been sustained by untold numbers of human beings over a period of thousands of years. When studied, learned and put into practice, it shows us the tools each of us has been gifted with to live a meaningful life, fulfilling a purpose that has ultimate value in our heart and in our mind. It augments our potential by adding on to the predispositions of our genetic inheritance and enables us to transform ourselves into unique individuals; each with a significant contribution to make that can support the Earth and all who live upon it to have a better life. It is a path toward attaining a deep sense of satisfaction, living a life where we are at peace with the choices that we make.
