people would like to do anything together for it...I would like to suggest the period could be used to inaugurate the following discussion:How might we come to a proper understanding of astrology?This would interest me personally, and also I suspect, be instructive generally. There is much misunderstanding about astrology, partly because the subject is treated with contempt by materialism, and also partly because much that exists is debased owing to the steady decline of atavistic clairvoyance.As regards my personal interest, although I have read Anthroposophy for more than twenty years, my interest in astrology is only a recent development. I am therefore a novice in this particular field. And it is quite a field too. There is the mathematics of drawing a birth chart, an understanding of the special nature of each of the planets and the signs of the zodiac, the relationship of human beings to the stars, and the use and development of intuition as a means to arrive at reliable direct personal knowledge.I would be interested in gaining some indication as to where to begin, as well as having the opportunity to put questions and read the replies of others more versed in the subject.

Was that an ancient cross buried within the earth perhaps either in Lemerian or Atlantean time? When the trees used to fly along with humans and the trees were some type of healing form. Then some wise guys got bored one day and cut that tree down and it became the southern cross which became the southern cross constellation.Some people were actually killed with that southern cross (tree) because they were trying to save it from harm. These ancient Atlanteans or Lemurians were buried along with it inside of it. Some of these people in human form today experience pain in the middle of the shoulder blades as a result of this galactic drama. Has anybody heard anything similar to it or make some sense out of it? It is very interesting to me. I have this pain in the middle of my shoulder blades as well. It has become a seasonal thing. Every June of the year as summer really approaches it flares up so badly I can barely function. Chantel
