The New Age marriage of Astrology and Metaphysics has led to a new modern paradigm: Metastrology. Astrology (and its cousin disciplines: Numerology and Tarot) seeks thru the symbolism of Myth and Archetype to define and explain the human condition. Metaphysics applies both Eastern and Western ancient philosophy and mysticism along with modern Cosmology and Theoretical Physics in the attempt to uncover answers to the ages-old questions of Existence. The Precession of the Equinoxes continues its long, slow inexorable march slowly transitioning us from the previous Age of Pisces, the Age of Faith and Religion into the New Age of Science and Reason, the Age of Aquarius. The mysticism of the East and the rationalism of the West are increasingly showing themselves as being two contrasting sides of the same Cosmic Coin.
Although in many circles formal organized religion is on the decline, the spirituality of the younger generations is markedly on the rise as todays’ youth seek answers to life’s many burning questions concerning their ultimate fate and Raison d’Etre. Spiritual concepts such as karma and reincarnation, once the province mainly of Eastern mysticism, have spread and gained a large and increasing following in the West. Alternately, the Western scientific theories of Relativity and Quantum Physics have proved to rationally substantiate many of the ancient mystical conceptualizations of the East.
Metastrology, therefore, seeks to merge these two contrasting mindsets to bring forward a working synthesis of rational knowledge and intuitive wisdom which encompasses all aspects of Divine Gnosis.
