Introduction to Physics of Astrology

What is the physical mechanism by which celestial bodies influence our life? This is the most common question we, as astrologers, get from skeptics.

Skeptics say that astrology is pseudoscience because there is no scientific proof of the existence of a physical mechanism by which celestial bodies can affect our thinking and decision making process.

The good news for astrologers is that in order to answer the skeptics questions, we do not really need a “proof” in the form of a special scientific experiment or measurement. We just need to look at the obvious and gather information that is already available.

The number one physical mechanism by which celestial bodies affect our body and brain is gravity. If you mention to a skeptic the “lunar tides” phenomenon, that alone explains a lot. If the Moon creates tides in the oceans and atmosphere, then why can’t we go beyond that and see that the Moon create tides in humans, animals, and nature. We are very much liquid. Our brain consists of 78% of water. Our bones consist of 22% water.
The fact that the Moon affects us with its gravity is obvious and does not require “proof.” If one agrees with the lunar gravitational effect on us, then it is easy to see that the Moon is not the only celestial body that possesses gravity. Other celestial bodies create similar tidal effects in the Earth’s oceans, atmosphere, nature, stones, humans, and animals.
Gravity affects everything.
The next question of a skeptic is “How exactly does the lunar gravity pull make me think a certain way?”
To answer that question, keep in mind that we are living in a pool of gravitational waves that originate from celestial bodies, which are in constant motion in relation to us. Planets are orbiting around the Sun. The Moon is orbiting around the Earth. These waves have circular shape and direction aligned with the direction of planetary motion.
Gravitational waves, while propagating in ether or fabric of space, act similar to waves in the ocean. Each wave has its attributes and qualities like frequency, amplitude, and direction of propagation.
Imagine yourself on a small boat in the ocean. The big wave comes in. The boat rises on the tip of the wave. The wave moves in a certain direction and carries a certain energy to push the boat in that direction. Whether you want it to or not, the boat moves in the direction the wave pushes it to. This explains the frequent feeling people have that the circumstances pull or push us in a certain direction, and we do not have control over it even though we are seemingly making decisions.
Another way of understanding how our watery brain “makes decisions” while floating in the pool of gravitational waves is picturing the river movement. All particles of the river flow in the same direction. When meeting an obstacle, the river finds a way around it.
Picture yourself driving on a highway. The highway would be like a river. If the car in front of you slows down, then you are trying to find another way to move with the speed you want by making a decision to switch lanes. Have you ever thought of what exactly prompted you to make that decision? If you watch a busy highway from a bird’s view, it might remind you of a river.
Human life, in general, is similar to a river or a highway. We are always finding ourselves in a current of events and circumstances. It is much easier when our decisions are lined up with the current and when we are going with the flow. It is hard to impossible to swim against the current.
Let’s look at the issue from another angle. Most people believe that their thinking and decisions originate from the brain. In reality, the thoughts in the brain are secondary. First, we get external information. We either see something, hear, taste, smell, or feel it with our skin. Then our brain processes the information and makes a decision. Our brain is never isolated from the external environment. If it was, it would not be able to make a decision. All the information we receive from the external environment is vibrational. We are like a radio. Our whole body is like an antenna, which has a system of five sophisticated amplifiers resonating with five different ranges of frequencies that we call our five senses. Through these five senses, we receive information that our brain analyses and based on that analysis we “make a decision.”
Do we receive any other vibrational information that is outside of the range of our hearing capacity or beyond visible spectrum and is not processed through other senses? Of course. We receive all kinds of vibrational information. We are bombarded with electromagnetic and gravitational waves of a very wide spectrum. The lower frequencies of that spectrum get as low as 248 years per cycle (Pluto’s orbit around the Sun) and even lower.
The higher frequencies of that spectrum are as high as 4×1014 cycle per second (Hz) (visible red light) and higher. Our body and brain are designed in such a way that we can only consciously process a small portion of information. The rest of information is processed subconsciously.
We are simply designed to process only immediate circumstantial information. The big wave of a very low frequency, like Pluto’s 248 years per cycle, takes us in a direction that is hard to understand unless we are lucky enough to have an astrology program at our disposal that helps us to interpret such wave.
With all that said, the physical mechanism by which celestial bodies affect us is vibrational in nature. We can call it a vibrational planetary signal, where the word “gravity” merely describes the low frequency spectrum of that signal. The planets send us signals that carry information in which direction we need to move.
