The political climate in recent years has been nothing short of sporadic but despite this, the use of astrology in politics is nothing new. Over many centuries, leaders and politicians West and East, some of the most highly educated people of their times, have used the services of astrologers to advise them. This brings us to the question, why do people in general use such services?
Well, the best example to speak on why, is when a “prophet” had given Caesar a warning of a risk to his life on the Ides of March. As he headed to the Theatre of Pompey where it later took place that day, he passed the seer and sarcastically said, “The Ides of March are here”. The seer then responded, “Aye Caesar…” in agreement, before saying, “…but not gone.” He was later killed that day, which brought about the end of the Roman Empire. This then poses the question; could Caesar have avoided this fate?
Well, who knows? Astrology is a symbol system based on a vast and ancient collection of psychological and natural observations and it’s arguable that Caesar might have escaped if he had decided to act on the warning. The fact is, astrology politics is about coping, control, risk assessment and preparation, and ultimately, survival through an emphasis on keen reasoning, thorough research and systematic analysis. The human race has always exercised its wits in trying to sense the future, preparing to meet opportunities, challenges, or even downright threats. But sometimes decisions need to be taken when we don’t have all the facts we ideally need. This is where Astrology Politics offers a fresh opinion/view of the situation, and a sense of the options, the stakes, and the odds.
