Most people try to study astrology to find for themselves what is due to come into their lives.
There are, however, many reasons why this specific subject is the hardest.
An individual is mainly interested to find out whether he or she will make a. lot of money. Will he or she marry and when? Will he or she have children and when?
How can such things be figured out correctly, when many persons do not even know their birth date, not to speak about the exact moment of the birth's occurance. It will be shown later on that the birth moment of a person is the moment upon which his entire life is based.
Some years ago I had a rich Jewish fellow wanted me to make his horoscope. He gave mo his date of birth. I agreed to check him. All I got was a "'poor church mouse," so to say; I knew he was rich but the horoscope of a rich man shows riches so clearly that, even though che exact time of binh is not known, he still must be rich, if born within the 24 hours of such a favorable day. Anyhow a day or two after, I reported to him, that he was not born on the day he gave trie. Upon closer investigation I discovered that his birth place wis in Russian Poland instead of in Austrian Poland, which latter country I had assumed his little town was located. Russian Poland used the Russian calendar instead of the European one. It was a matter of 12 days difference. When I erected the chart, .his "face" appeared.
There is one little trick to discover whether people are born during day rime or during the night: Those who ate born in day time will, when they clasp hands, and hold them tight after clasping, have the right hand above and left hand below, whereas those bom during the nigh: will hold their left hand above and the right hand below.
the present time, we hardly can believe the ancient books to be astrological texts. We juat don't recognize them as such, because not a word is breathed about the angles, about the planets, about sidereal time etc.
But, when we examine a text book on college mathematics and compare it with an arithmetic book for the first grade public school it ha_s some relationship. These artciem books anticipated, that all known sciences had previously been acquired by the student. The reader was supposed to be of the type who is not satisfied, with common, everyday knowledge, but aspired for much deeper knowledge, a knowledge which is not intended for the misses. Another illustration rhat should bring home the idea clearly: Compare an ordinary calendar issued gratis by pharmaceutical companies every year with the Nautical Almanac issued by the U. S. Government! Both are almanacs- The latter sounds Greek to but a few And the masses do not even recognize that it is merely a calendar. With the latter you can do a lot of scientific work; the former can also be put to use.
Of course, there is one great hindrance to help recognize that these old texts are nothing but astrological texts, when our own education tells us: The telescope was only invented a few hundred years ago. Many instruments needed for exact observation of the planets" motions were unknowQ about 500 years ago. Furthermore, some contend that several of the planets were not known, which are now used for the interpretation, of horoscopes.
Bat ail chese apparent disadvantages did not prevent these ancients to have ways and means of forecasting future events and to bring the laws in concise form, which never require a change.
