Astrology & the Chakras In this article I would like to explore the exciting possibility of bridging two of history's greatest psychological systems -- astrology and the chakras. Conventionally, these two systems have been seen as having little or nothing to do with each other, the former primarily concerning the outer world, or macrocosm, and the latter involving the inner world, or microcosm. In fact, as we shall soon see, these two systems are but two sides of the same coin, each one complementing the other and thus enhancing our understanding of both. The basic system of correspondences I will be using here is drawn from teachers I have studied with in the Kriya Yoga lineage.1 The general system of "chakric horoscopes" and their guidelines for interpretation are my own, developed over more than a decade of working with these basic correspondences. With that said, let us begin by exploring some of the core ideas of chakric philosophy. What Are the Chakras? Chakra 2 is called Svadisthana. References and Notes
‘You’re not the boss of the world’: Regular Iranians speak directly to America CNN traveled to Tehran and asked locals what they thought of the United States. (YouTube) CNN went to Tehran this week, to coincide with the new Iranian government's big push for rapprochement with the United States. To get a sense of how regular Iranians feel about America, the network set up a camera and microphone downtown and invited those who walked past to share their thoughts on the country that Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei sometimes refers to as the "Great Satan." Their responses offer an interesting glimpse into how the United States is perceived in Iran. They tended to be pretty positive, with some big caveats. "You're not the boss of the world," one woman says to the camera. Polling inside Iran is, for obvious reasons, rare. "We never, ever started a war," one woman points out, decrying U.S. concerns about Iran's nuclear program. Of course, this video is far from a statistically rigorous survey of Iranian public opinion.

:: AstroPhoebe Astrology :: The zodiac circle is a matrix of creation, one of the shapes seminal to the evolution of form. It can be compared to the pattern of a rainbow that always manifests with the same seven colours in the same order. So the energies radiating from the centre of a circle display a twelve-fold pattern exhibiting the same internal qualitative geometry. And within the circle each of the twelve astrological archetypes has its place, and determines the qualities of its 30-degree segment. Thus the section of the circle characterised by Aries traits will always lie opposite the section with Libra qualities, whether the matrix is manifesting as a circle of twelve constellations in the sky, as a Neolithic stone circle, or the landscape zodiac around Glastonbury. The internal geometry of the circle, which is absolute, determines the angular relationships or aspects between its segments.

The Message of the Stars, by Max Heindel by Max Heindel and Augusta Foss Heindel Click here for the graphics printed book cover. Click here for the photograph of Max Heindel. 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."
Reality Game Solution You ended on the word "God." Are you amazed? Why should this work? Consider my next question carefully. Your soul may depend on it. Does your answer prove that God exists and that the Bible is a reflection of ultimate reality? Before attributing the "God" outcome to some cute, mathematical quirk or coincidence, consider that no one has yet to find this effect with any other lines of the King James Bible. I discuss this potent puzzle in my book Wonders of Numbers, where I also trace the history of this puzzle and give further analysis. Some scholarly and mystical commentary on this Reality Game appears here. Further work on God puzzles is described in my book The Paradox of God and the Science of Omniscience. Other reality puzzles are presented in my Neoreality science-fiction series. You may contact me if you believe you have a theory as to why we find this "Genesis Effect," or if you have any comments about this effect. Return to Reality Carnival.

Full of hope and excitement, Scholl believed in the unquestioned authority of the Nazi party. By the age of 18, Scholl’s eyes were opened to the inhumane and unjust politics of the party, and their hidden agenda. Scholl then took action to lead a group that disseminated literature challenging the Nazi dictatorship. Hans Fritz Scholl was born the second of Magdalena’s six children on the 22nd of September, 1918. His father, Robert Scholl was mayor of a middle class town in northern Germany and was a major influence on all of his children’s political thoughts. At the age of 12, Hans eagerly participated in political youth groups mandated by the military dictatorship. “We want to try and show them that everyone is in a position to contribute to the overthrow of the system. Hans soon became a leader of the Hitler Youth.
Astrology Insights Current Transits As the planets of our solar system orbit around the Sun, they move into mathematical relationships with one another. These relationships are called "transits." Transits operate like a pen highlighting words on a page - they draw our attention to a particular area. By understanding the meaning behind a specific transit we can understand the deeper meaning of events - both on a global scale as well as within our own lives. Some transits move very quickly and are in effect for only a few days while others are in effect over months or even years.

Procrastination The Misconception: You procrastinate because you are lazy and can’t manage your time well. The Truth: Procrastination is fueled by weakness in the face of impulse and a failure to think about thinking. Netflix reveals something about your own behavior you should have noticed by now, something which keeps getting between you and the things you want to accomplish. If you have Netflix, especially if you stream it to your TV, you tend to gradually accumulate a cache of hundreds of films you think you’ll watch one day. Take a look at your queue. Psychologists actually know the answer to this question, to why you keep adding movies you will never watch to your growing collection of future rentals, and it is the same reason you believe you will eventually do what’s best for yourself in all the other parts of your life, but rarely do. A study conducted in 1999 by Read, Loewenstein and Kalyanaraman had people pick three movies out of a selection of 24. You weigh yourself. How would you pick? Links:
