Ancient Astrology and Divination on the Web Welcome to Ancient Astrology and Divination on the Web . This an organized, annotated set of more than 215 links to reliable information about ancient (primarily Greek and Roman) astrology and divination. It is designed to provide some alternative to web searches that turn up dozens of pages by astrologers, tarot readers, and palmists--most seeking your money and all "believers." Although moderns practitioners can occasionally provide useful information, they tend to misrepresent ancient evidence in favor of false continuity and simplicity. I should say at the outset that I am not a believer in astrology or any other form of divination. On this site you fill find pages on Ancient Astrology , on Dream Interpretation (Oneiromancy), general studies of ancient divinatory thinking and practice. I recently cleaned out all the dead links. I hope you find some of these resources useful. Timothy Spalding

Two New Alien Planets Discovered in Andromeda --"Resets the Bar for Weird" Astronomers are beginning to suspect that something unusual happens during the evolution of such solar systems that drives massive planets into kinds of close encounters. The presence of a stellar sibling orbiting both of the newly discovered solar systems may be a “smoking gun” clue that past interactions between the planets and these distant siblings is an important part of that process. One planet is located in the constellation Andromeda. The other planet, KELT-2Ab, is located in the constellation Auriga, and is typical of many previously discovered extrasolar planets in that it much resembles our own Jupiter. “Normally, we would need a space telescope to do all that, but in this case the host star is so bright that we can make many of these measurements from the ground,” Beatty said.* KELT is short for “Kilodegree Extremely Little Telescope.” Other telescopes were designed to look at very faint stars in tiny sections of the sky, and at very high resolution, Beatty explained.

Dreamy Lunar Eclipse + Play Audio | + Download Audio | + Join mailing list August 3, 2007: Close your eyes, breathe deeply, let your mind wander to a distant seashore: It's late in the day, and the western sun is sinking into the glittering waves. At your feet, damp sand reflects the twilight, while overhead, the deep blue sky fades into a cloudy mélange of sunset copper and gold, so vivid it almost takes your breath away. A breeze touches the back of your neck, and you turn to see a pale full Moon rising into the night. Too bad it's only a dream... Early Tuesday morning, August 28th, the dream will come true. Right: Photos of the March 3, 2007, lunar eclipse. The event begins 54 minutes past midnight PDT (0754 UT) on August 28th when the Moon enters Earth's shadow. To understand why the change occurs, close your eyes and dream yourself all the way to the Moon. With the Sun blocked, you might expect utter darkness, but no, the ground at your feet is aglow.

After a 14-Year Search --Elusive Ancient Galaxy Found In the Hubble Deep Field Region of the Universe (above), an international team of astronomers managed for the first time to determine the distance of the galaxy HDF850.1, well-known among astronomers as being one of the most productive star-forming galaxies in the observable universe. The galaxy is at a distance of 12.5 billion light years when the universe was less than 10 percent of its current age. For the past 14 years, HDF850.1 has remained strangely elusive. Its location in space, specifically its distance from Earth – the subject of many studies – ultimately remained unknown. How was that possible? "A vast cloud of dust keeps HDF850.1 hidden from telescopes searching the universe in the visible light range, so even the Hubble Space Telescope can't see it," Robertson said. "Any clue we can get about how those early galaxies formed helps us better understand this process," Robertson said. The galaxy HDF850.1 was discovered in 1998. "Stars form in dense clouds of gas and dust.

NewsFlash: Rumors Swirling that CERN will Confirm Existence of Higgs Boson Scientists at CERN might be on the verge confirming the existence of what they call the "Higgs boson", according to rumors circulating this week. Higgs, they believe, is a particle, or set of particles, that might give others mass. According to Columbia University mathematician, Peter Woit, "CERN will soon have to decide how to spin this: will they announce discovery of the Higgs, or will they wait for some overwhelmingly convincing standard to be met, such as 5 sigma in at least one channel of one experiment? The theory, developed by British physicist Peter Higgs in the 1960s. hypothesizes that a lattice, referred to as the Higgs field, fills the universe. The question of mass has been a puzzling one, and has left the Higgs boson as the single missing piece of the Standard Model yet to be spotted. The search has been on for over ten years, both at CERN's Large Electron Positron Collider (LEP) in Geneva and at Fermilab in Illinois. The Daily Galaxy via:

Bridget of Sweden Bridget of Sweden (1303 – 23 July 1373; also Birgitta of Vadstena, Saint Birgitta (Swedish: den heliga Birgitta or Birgitta Birgersdotter), was a mystic and saint, and founder of the Bridgettines nuns and monks after the death of her husband of twenty years. She was also the mother of Catherine of Vadstena. She is one of the six patron saints of Europe, together with Benedict of Nursia, Saints Cyril and Methodius, Catherine of Siena and Edith Stein. Life[edit] The most celebrated saint of Sweden was the daughter of the knight Birger Persson[1] of the family of Finsta, governor and lawspeaker of Uppland, and one of the richest landowners of the country, and his wife, a member of the so-called Lawspeaker branch of the Folkunga family. In 1316, at the age of 14[1] she married Ulf Gudmarsson of the family of Ulvåsa, Lord of Närke, to whom she bore eight children, four daughters and four sons. In 1344, shortly after their return, Ulf died at the Cistercian Alvastra Abbey in Östergötland.

An Esoteric Exposition of Natal and Medical Astrology Explaining the Arts of Reading the Horoscope and Diagnosing Disease Table of Contents It is a matter of common knowledge among mystics that the evolutionary career of mankind is indissolubly bound up with the divine hierarchies who rule the planets and the signs of the Zodiac, and that passage of the Sun and the planets through the twelve signs of the Zodiac, marks man's progress in time and in space. Concerning the future evolution of planets; the Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception teaches, on page 256, that "when the beings upon the planet have evolved to a sufficient degree, the planet becomes a Sun, the fixed center of the Solar System. "Our visible Sun is but the mirror in which are reflected the Rays of energy from the Spiritual Sun, the real Sun is as invisible as the real man."
