Sexual Fables


In Western (tropical) astrology I am a Double Gemini (Sun and Moon) with Sagittarius Rising. In Indian (sidereal) astrology I am a Taurus. No way. In Chinese astrology, I am Year of the Wood Horse (Fire Sign), with the Snake (another Fire Sign) as my lunar/inner animal and a secret animal that's either a Monkey or Rooster (Metal Signs). OK...

The issue for me is not what the Sun or the Moon were doing at the moment of our birth, or what was ascendant, or what the planets were doing in our houses. Horoscope astrology offers a mystical or Gnostic obsession with synchonicity which seems to be religious in nature, except that here Time replaces Space (cf. The Divine Elevator and Sacred Geometry plus Chartres Cathedral's Zodiac windows).

However, I am content to believe that astrology can capture human DNA quite well and I certainly fit the Gemini profile. Fire, Earth, Air and Water and animal-based "types" like Aries, Taurus, etc. with their clusters of adjectives offer a richer human tapestry than the classical theory of humors or the lists of pathologies created by modern psychoanalysts and psychologists. No wonder a significant proportion of the population in this so-called scientific age prefers to believe in astrology's descriptive and predictive powers. Why? Because it works better and it's not as rigid - change is woven into the mix.
