If you find astrology interesting and enjoyable to read, you will love the Mythology of Astrology. In this blog we will look at how astrology came to be.

Let’s get started…

It is believed that the first discovered records of astrology were in the seventh century B.C.E. The ancient people loved to look up at the sky and try to make sense of the movement of the stars. Many ancient peoples like the Babylonians, Egyptians, Romans and Greeks contributed to the discovery of the zodiac. It was in the fifth century B.C.E that the creation of the zodiac is seen. At that time, it was believed that the stars held influence over our lives from birth until death.

In Greek the word zodiac means “circle of animals”. The names of the zodiac signs are represented by animals and creatures from Greek Mythology. The word horoscope “oro + scopo” comes from the Greek meaning “look at the hours”.

Let’s look at the first zodiac sign of Aries (March21-April 19) and see what it’s mythology is all about.

Aries, the magical creature that could fly and had a golden coat was sent by the gods to rescue King Athamas’s twin children, Helle and Phrixus. These children were about to be sacrificed at the hand of their jealous step- mother, Ino. The plan was for the Ram to swoop down and ride the children to safety. Unfortunately, Helle fell into the sea and was lost.

To thank the gods for saving him, Phrixus sacrificed the ram and saved its Golden Fleece. This was the fleece that was sought by Jason and the Argonauts.

All you need to know about the October 2020 Blue Moon

The next full moon will come on Halloween: October 31, 2020. According to folklore, it will be called the Blue Moon because it’ll be the 2nd of 2 full moons in a single calendar month. There has not been a Blue Moon since March 31, 2018. If you are wondering what this means for you, don’t worry we have all you need to know below.

The first full moon of the month will fall on October 1-2, 2020. It’ll be the Northern Hemisphere’s Harvest Moon. The full moon you’ll see on October 31, 2020, won’t look blue, however, as the second full moon in a month it is traditionally called a Blue Moon.

There’s another definition for Blue Moon. It can be the third of four full moons in a single season, with a season being between a solstice and equinox. The blue moon on Halloween will have no astrological significance. This is because on Oct. 31, 2020, the blue moon will be calendrical rather than astrological, which is an important distinction that astrologers make. While a calendrical blue moon occurs a second time in one calendar month, an astrological blue moon is one that occurs a second time during one solar month, which is the period of time in which the sun passes through a zodiac sign. The next astrological blue moon won’t occur until Aug. 22, 2021, but when that happens, it’ll be a magical night.

The blue moon on Aug. 22, 2021 will exaggerate the characteristics of Leo, the fire sign represented by the lion, which can cause you to become more creative, dramatic, and passionate than usual. Even though the moon on Oct. 31, 2020 won’t be an astrological blue moon, it’ll still be a night of immense space influence and a real sight to see in the sky. Since it’s on Halloween, it’ll only add to the effect.

Astrology verses Astronomy

rising signs astrology

Astrology and astronomy come from the same roots. The motion of the planets against the stars attracted attention and curiosity. In the early ages, astrology and astronomy were terms used indistinguishably. These two concepts were separated gradually from the 17th century onwards until they were declared to be entirely independent of each other. Astronomy deviated from astrology when someone began trying to figure out what was actually going on. This was the beginning of a long history of progress in knowledge, otherwise known as science.

Astronomy is a science that studies everything outside of the earth’s atmosphere, such as planets, stars, asteroids, galaxies; and the properties and relationships of those celestial bodies. Astronomers base their studies on research and observation.

Astrology is quite old, dating back to ancient Babylon. In the earliest form, astrology consisted of watching the motions of the planets and trying to read omens from them. By the first century CE, astrology was Hellenized (Greekified) and had taken the general form we know today. This included the development of natal horoscopes, which used a plot of the positions of the Sun, Moon, and visible planets to divine the future of a child.

the 12 signs of astrology were defined by the 12 constellations of the Zodiac. Those constellations lie along the Sun’s annual path through the sky. The sun sign of Scorpius lay in the constellation Scorpius, and the same for the other signs. This is no longer true. In the 2nd century BCE, Hipparchos discovered a very slow change in the sky. We call it precession, and it is a wobbling motion of the Earth’s axis caused mostly by the Moon’s gravity.

Astronomy is the scientific learning of planets and all other celestial objects to study their origins, interrelationships and future movements. Astronomy is the study of how the celestial objects motion and changes affects the everyday human life and nature. There is a lot of discussion about whether astrology ought to be viewed as a real part of a science or deemed merely mystical. Given the name “Mother of all sciences,” the focal ideas of astrology are taken from hypotheses that go past the domains of logical examination. Astrology incorporates a few components of genuine science, such as specific vocabulary, math, and puzzling graphs.

Mercury Goes Retrograde Mid October

If you thought 2020 was done with its curve balls, you may have jumped the gun. Mercury retrograde fall 2020 begins on October 13, and it is delivering three full weeks of mix-ups and mayhem in the communication, thinking, and timing departments. Thankfully, it is the final time the planet will retrograde in 2020.

Mercury the planet of communication and cognitive function  stations retrograde in secretive, obsessive, and transformative Scorpio this month. During this time, be extra careful of what you say behind people’s backs, as it will likely have a way of getting back to them. You may even notice that emotional hang-ups from your past are returning to the forefront and possibly even people from your past will reappear. Since the majority of this retrograde will take place in Scorpio’s murky and emotionally charged waters, making this backspin feel even more intense and powerful than usual re-opening past emotional wounds and making us feel extra defensive about protecting our sensitive hearts and reputations.

When Mercury retrogrades back into harmonious and partnership-oriented Libra on Oct. 27, it will be a beautiful time to get closure and maybe even resurrect a relationship from long ago. Nothing that Mercury retrograde throws our way is insurmountable, no matter how disruptive it may feel at the time. And none of it is solely negative, so spend this second part of its retrograde learning and healing from what it has taught you. Mercury’s regular retrograde cycle is a self-correcting mechanism of the universe, enabling things that need adjustment to be adjusted before it’s too late.

Mercury will go direct again on November 3rd, so if you find this period particularly impactful on you hang in there through Halloween and you will find yourself heading into the winter holidays with all right in the stars for you again.
