ASA May Lecture: “Astrology-Art or Science?

May 18 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

ASA co-founder, Russ von Ohlhausen, jumps right into the fire again with a new look at astrology from the minds that have faced off with science and those that are still doing it today…

‘Astrology is the highest artistic expression of the spiritual sciences.’Hopefully, most open-minded astrologers would agree with that, whereas some, the more linear thinkers, would not. The issue is rooted in the connotations and interpretations that we individually apply to each of those words. Science, art, & spiritually are virtually separate concepts in our time but in the ancient world they were considered as integral aspects of a single holistic pursuit. A closer look at most ancient civilizations reveals that there was essentially no separation or distinction in these modalities within the lives of those who were a part of most every culture.  Johnathan Anthony West, famous Egyptologist (who was also an astrologer), once said, “In ancient Egypt they were inextricably entwined … so that there was no art that wasn’t religious (spiritual), no religion that wasn’t philosophical, no philosophy that wasn’t scientific, no science that wasn’t art…”  Still, many ‘spiritual astrologers’ do not consider astrology to be scientific and merely meant to remain a mystery, while there are ‘secular astrologers’ who feel astrology to be merely method of marking space-time and void of spiritual meaning.
