Why I Consider Myself a 'Transcendental Astrologer'

Updated on January 12, 2018

Astrology - is it good or bad?

You've no doubt heard these passages at some point in your life if you're a Christian, or have some familiarity with the Christian faith.

Deuteronomy 17:2-3 “If there is found among you, within any of your towns that the LORD your God is giving you, a man or woman who does what is evil in the sight of the LORD your God, in transgressing his covenant, and has gone and served other gods and worshiped them, or the sun or the moon or any of the host of heaven, which I have forbidden.”

Deuteronomy 18:10-14: "There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord. And because of these abominations the Lord your God is driving them out before you. You shall be blameless before the Lord your God, for these nations, which you are about to dispossess, listen to fortune-tellers and to diviners. But as for you, the Lord your God has not allowed you to do this."

Isaiah 47:13-14: "All the advice you receive has made you tired. Where are all your astrologers, those stargazers who make predictions each month? Let them stand up and save you from what the future holds. But they are like straw burning in a fire; they cannot save themselves from the flame. You will get no help from them at all; their hearth is no place to sit for warmth."

Yet, there are numerous references that are more subtle, that seem to CONTRADICT this message!

For example, in the book of Daniel, although it is mentioned several times that the diviners and astrologers could not determine the answer sought out by King Nebuchadnezzar, he was made CHIEF of this group. It did NOT mention that Daniel eliminated them.

Also, it is nearly impossible to ignore the Divine Numerology (the numbers 3, 4, 7, 10 and 12, along with the numbers 30, 40 and 72) occur repeatedly throughout the Bible. Some of these numbers also happen to correlate with astrological planetary cycles (Saturn with 3 and 30, Uranus with 7, Jupiter with 12). Other numbers, like five (tied into the story of Joseph almost exclusively, and seeming to tie into the 'Divine Beauty Numeral' phi, which is tied to the square root of five, symbolize the manifestation of abundance.

I also can't help but have noticed in my five years reading professionally, that I've had hundreds of clients tell me how accurate and specific astrology is for describing their personalities. Surely, astrology couldn't be entirely untrue.

So what is right and wrong here?

I do believe the context of what the times help to say and the Holy Spirit's clarifications, which I often receive as I'm taking Epsom salt baths (because the minerals help clear toxins like fluoride in our water, which in turn helps us receive pure divine insight, through the Pineal gland, instead of the lower energy vibrations of demonic entities), gain us some peace in some 'big picture' interpretations of what the Prophets were trying to say here.

We are living in grossly different times than during the Biblical days. Yet, it is true that God is speaking today through means that may be considered 'abominations' by right-wing Christians.

One of my favorite books, written by such a Christian, but very powerfully able to open my eyes beyond strict denominational Christianity, is The Harvest by Rick Joyner.

The author discusses very important principles that help redirect the Christian back to the most important place. The condition of the HEART is more important than doctrinal accuracy. He does state that it's a natural desire to want all one's doctrines to be correct. However, he also discusses the inevitability of doctrinal mixtures. Essentially, all Christians are in error somehow. But that being said, being moved in our SPIRIT is far more important than what we hold to in formulas for faith.

The book also mentions the anatomy of a lie. Satan uses things that are true at first. Look at the fall of man from the Garden of Eden. He twisted the words 'You shall not die and shall become like gods, knowing good and evil'. He appealed to man's ego.

This is how the introduction of astrology occurred, in my opinion. And it's not that we need to be scared of it. Those of us who are strong in faith know, trust and have observed it exists and has some truth in it.

But is it the ultimate manifestation of faith when we look to any ONE thing as the answer?

Unless it is Source, God, or whatever you wish to call it, Love, Light - no.

That being said, I do happen to see countless ways in which it manifests using these 'lower vibrational' ways of knowing!

And, we often interpret God coming down directly to give his messages to the ancients. Do you really think things were somehow DIFFERENT in Biblical times?

Joseph used a cup for divination. Ohhhhh, is this my favorite for doing Google searches on, and seeing 'Bible Thumpers' slam it, or try to edit it out of the Bible!

It is true, in my opinion, based on what Joyner states in his book, to even put the Bible itself on a pedestal as being absolute truth over what God would have to say.

God is very 'BIG PICTURE' oriented. He tells us what we need to know. We do not receive every little detail. If you look at the angels as roles in delivering messages to the called (angels visiting Abraham and Sarah about the birth of Isaac, or Gabriel visiting the virgin Mary), he assigns lower Divine beings to those tasks. For example, Gabriel assisted Mary in understanding the twists and turns about being a pregnant Virgin.

That's why I perceive the Bible to be true, when viewed through a BIG PICTURE lens. But yet many Christians are violently fighting with one another because they try to fit it into a little detailed lens.

Is a Christian going to win an argument with God when s/he is there on Judgment Day? For example, about creation happening 6000 years ago when it may have in fact been millions of years?

No.

Therefore, my suggestion is there is a reason why Spirit allows you to gravitate toward certain things or interests. I have learned therefore, to detach from those friends or former associates of mine who likewise, I may be judging erroneously. I still follow my instinct on who to let go. But, I am mindful of my own errors too, and how I may be corrected by a loving God.

Because Spirit and intuition still lead me towards astrology at this time, and I am aware of how it may have been set up by lower vibrational forces as a source to control our lives, rather than live in faith, I have considered a new understanding of it. I call myself a 'transcendental astrologer'.

What exactly does that mean?

It means that instead of considering the lower vibration aspects of astrology, namely, fatalistic astrology (not being able to escape one's negative ramifications based on one's chart, and therefore not trying in life due to despair) and raising one's vibration through many methods, one can 'Lift High the Cross' in their own lives.

I use that phrase, 'Lift High The Cross', because it is without a doubt THE MOST TROUBLESOME aspect in an astrological chart, and also the name of a famous Christian hymn.

Notice that the hymn is not 'Lift High The Trine'. Suffering is indeed a greater teacher than bliss. Many curse God for not striving to understand suffering for what it is. A trine aspect is the flip side of the Cross, for it is considered the easiest and most harmonious aspect in astrology.

I am also not going to make a final call on whether astrology is right or wrong, based on the data and experience I presented.

1 Thessalonians 5:21: "Test all things, holding onto what is good".
