Astrology Quotes (94) Spiritual Sayings


Summary: Definition of Astrology. Astrology is the study of the movements and relative positions of celestial objects as a means for divining information about human affairs and terrestrial events. Astrology has been dated to at least the 2nd millennium BCE, and has its roots in calendrical systems used to predict seasonal shifts and to interpret celestial cycles as signs of divine communications. Many cultures have attached importance to astronomical events, and some – such as the Indians, Chinese, and Maya – developed elaborate systems for predicting terrestrial events from celestial observations. Western astrology, one of the oldest astrological systems still in use, can trace its roots to 19th–17th century BCE Mesopotamia, from which it spread to Ancient Greece, Rome, the Arab world and eventually Central and Western Europe. Contemporary Western astrology is often associated with systems of horoscopes that purport to explain aspects of a person's personality and predict significant events in their lives based on the positions of celestial objects; the majority of professional astrologers rely on such systems.

Astrology is a science in itself and contains an illuminating body of knowledge. It taught me many things and I am greatly indebted to it.
~ Albert Einstein


The whole of ancient astrology owed its origin to conversation with the cosmic intelligences. But by the time of the first centuries after the rise of Christianity, ancient astrology - that is to say, conversation with cosmic intelligences - was a thing of the past.
~ Rudolf Steiner


Astrology is a language. If you understand this language, the sky speaks to you.
~ Dane Rudhyar


Perhaps there is a pattern set up in the heavens for one who desires to see it, and having seen it, to find one in himself.
~ Plato


Astrology is a fact, in most instances. But astrological aspects are but signs, symbols. No influence is of greater value or of greater help than the will of an individual.... Do not attempt to be guided by, but use the astrological influences as the means to meet or to overcome the faults and failures, or to minimize the faults and to magnify the virtues in self.
~ Edgar Cayce


A physician without a knowledge of Astrology has no right to call himself a physician.
~ Hippocrates


Astrology is assured of recognition from psychology, without further restrictions, because astrology represents the summation of all the psychological knowledge of antiquity.
~ Carl Jung


Human knowledge is dark and uncertain; philosophy is dark, astrology is dark, and geometry is dark.
~ John Jewel


The soul of the newly born baby is marked for life by the pattern of the stars at the moment it comes into the world, unconsciously remembers it, and remains sensitive to the return of configurations of a similar kind.
~ Johannes Kepler


Men should take their knowledge from the Sun, the Moon and the Stars.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


There is no better boat than a horoscope to help a man cross over the sea of life.
~ Varahamihira


In fact, the whole of mythology could be taken as a sort of projection of the collective unconscious
~ Carl Jung


The signs of the zodiac are karmic patterns; the planets are the looms; the will is the weaver.
~ Edgar Cayce


Astrology is one of the intuitive methods like the I Ching, geomantics, and other divinatory procedures. It is based upon the synchronicity principle, meaningful coincidence. ... Astrology is a naively projected psychology in which the different attitudes and temperaments of man are represented as gods and identified with planets and zodiacal constellations.
~ Carl Jung


The present is determined by our past actions, and the future by the present.
~ Swami Vivekananda


The cosmos is a vast living body, of which we are still parts. The sun is a great heart whose tremors run through our smallest veins. The moon is a great nerve center from which we quiver forever. Who knows the power that Saturn has over us, or Venus? But it is a vital power, rippling exquisitely through us all the time.
~ D. H. Lawrence


At the moment I am looking into astrology, which seems indispensable for a proper understanding of mythology. There are strange and wondrous things in these lands of darkness. Please, don't worry about my wanderings in these infinitudes. I shall return laden with rich booty for our knowledge of the human psyche.
~ Carl Jung


Some of what these pamphlets [of astrological forecasts] say will turn out to be true, but most of it time and experience will expose as empty and worthless. The latter part will be forgotten literally: written on the winds while the former will be carefully entered in people's memories, as is usual with the crowd.
~ Johannes Kepler


The starry vault of heaven is in truth the open book of cosmic projection, in which are reflected the mythologems, i.e., the archetypes. In this vision astrology and alchemy, the two classical functionaries of the psychology of the collective unconscious, join hands.
~ Carl Jung


No study has taken so much of human energy, whether in times past or present, as the study of the soul, of God, and of human destiny.
~ Swami Vivekananda


You can tell a lot about someone's personality if you know his star sign -Jesus, born on 25 December, fed the five thousand, walked on water -typical Capricorn.
~ Harry Hill


I've studied astrology for many, many years, and I feel like it's an incredibly challenging art.
~ Lynn Collins


After a duration of a thousand years, the power of astrology broke down when, with Copernicus, Kepler, and Galileo, the progress of astronomy overthrew the false hypothesis upon which the entire structure rested, namely the geocentric system of the universe. The fact that the earth revolves in space intervened to upset the complicated play of planetary influences, and the silent stars, related to the unfathomable depths of the sky, no longer made their prophetic voices audible to mankind. Celestial mechanics and spectrum analysis finally robbed them of their mysterious prestige.
~ Franz Cumont


Man has wanted to look beyond, wanted to expand himself; and all that we call progress, evolution, has been always measured by that one search, the search for human destiny, the search for God.
~ Swami Vivekananda


Astrology is of particular interest to the psychologist, since it contains a sort of psychological experience which we call projected - this means that we find the psychological facts as it were in the constellations. This originally gave rise to the idea that these factors derive from the stars, whereas they are merely in a relation of synchronicity with them. I admit that this is a very curious fact which throws a peculiar light on the structure of the human mind.
~ Carl Jung


I think the Greeks first took astrology to India and took from the Hindus the science of astronomy and carried it back with them from Europe. Because in India you will find old altars made according to a certain geometrical plan, and certain things had to be done when the stars were in certain positions, therefore I think the Greeks gave the Hindus astrology, and the Hindus gave them astronomy.
~ Swami Vivekananda


Astrology had an important role in the ancient world. You can't understand many things unless you know something about astrology - the plays of Shakespeare and so on.
~ Steven Pinker


Excessive attention to the minutiae of astrology is one of the superstitions which has hurt the Hindus very much.
~ Swami Vivekananda


Every Hindu knows that astrologers try to fix the caste of every boy or girl as soon as he or she is born. That is the real caste - the individuality, and Jyotisha (astrology) recognises that. And we can only rise by giving it full sway again. This variety does not mean inequality, nor any special privilege.
~ Swami Vivekananda


The Birth-chart has to be understood as the archetype or seed-pattern of one's individual being - as the 'symbolic' form of one's individuality, and therefore also of one's destiny, for the two are identical.
~ Dane Rudhyar


...It felt like they were telling each other secrets. Everything they said felt like that—whispered, tender, full of other meanings, like when you tell someone a dream or talk about your astrological signs as code for all the things you love about each other.
~ Francesca Lia Block


Nature may be as selfishly studied as trade. Astronomy to the selfish becomes astrology; psychology, mesmerism (with intent to show where aour spoons are gone); and anatomy and physiology become phrenology and palmistry.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


But just as astronomy succeeded astrology, following Kepler's discovery of planetary regularities, the discoveries of these many principles in empirical explorations of intellectual processes in machines should lead to a science, eventually.
~ Marvin Minsky


All Pretences of foretelling by Astrology, are Deceits; for this manifest Reason, because the Wise and Learned, who can only judge whether there be any Truth in this Science, do all unanimously agree to laugh at and despise it; and none but the poor ignorant Vulgar give it any Credit.
~ Jonathan Swift


All these ideas such as astrology, although there may be a grain of truth in them, should be avoided.
~ Swami Vivekananda


You can make a good living from soothsaying but not from truthsaying.
~ Georg C. Lichtenberg


The essential purpose of astrology is not so much to tell us what we will meet on our road, as it is to suggest how to meet it – and the basic reason for the meeting. Which quality in us, which type of strength is needed to go through any specific phase of our total unfoldment as an individual person.
~ Dane Rudhyar


I am an Aries. Although I do not believe in astrology, I think this is exactly the right sign to have been born under.
~ Anne Lamott


We are here to learn lessons and our birth chart tells us what our lessons are, what type of energy we possess in the first place, and how, by facing up to the challenges presented to us in life, spiritual growth will ensue. The birth chart is a 'tool' to guide us through our life. By understanding our basic make up, we can learn to make the most out of our positive points and try to improve on our weaker ones.
~ Stephen Arroyo


Astrology furnishes a splendid proof of the contemptible subjectivity of men. It refers the course of celestial bodies to the miserable ego: it establishes a connection between the comets in heaven and squabbles and rascalities on earth.
~ Arthur Schopenhauer


Figure-flingers and star-gazers pretend to foretell the fortunes of kingdoms, and have no foresight in what concerns themselves.
~ Roger L'Estrange


It is clearly evident that most events of a widespread nature draw their causes from the enveloping heavens.
~ Ptolemy


Astrological prayers seem to me to be built on as good reason as the predictions.
~ Benjamin Stillingfleet


No date prefixed directs me in the starry rubric set.
~ John Milton


My evenings are taken up very largely with astrology. I make horoscopic calculations in order to find a clue to the core of psychological truth.
~ Carl Jung


Responsibility, n. A detachable burden easily shifted to the shoulders of God, Fate, Fortune, Luck or one's neighbor. In the days of astrology it was customary to unload it upon a star.
~ Ambrose Bierce


There's some ill planet reigns: I must be patient till the heavens look With an aspect more favourable.
~ William Shakespeare


A most unfailing experience... of the excitement of sublunary (that is, human) natures by the conjunctions and aspects of the planets has instructed and compelled my unwilling belief.
~ Johannes Kepler


The # cosmos is a vast living body, of which we are still parts.
~ D. H. Lawrence


The collective unconscious appears to consist of mythological motifs or primordial images, for which reason the myths of all nations are its real exponents. In fact the whole of mythology could be taken as a sort of projection of the collective unconscious. We can see this most clearly if we look at the heavenly constellations, whose originally chaotic forms are organized through the projection of images. This explains the influence of the stars as asserted by astrologers. These influences are nothing but unconscious instrospective perceptions of the collective unconscious.
~ Carl Jung


I find my zenith doth depend upon A most auspicious star, whose influence If now I court not, but omit, my fortunes Will ever after droop.
~ William Shakespeare


I was born during an eclipse. I believe very much in astrology. If you were born on an eclipse it indicates your destiny is chaotic.
~ Gloria Vanderbilt


I’d compare stock pickers to astrologers but I don’t want to bad mouth astrologers.
~ Eugene Fama


They often say, "What's the point in astrology if you can't change your destiny?" Well, it's true that you can't change your destiny, but still it helps knowing about gravity.
~ Kedar Joshi


Astrologers that future fates foreshow.
~ Alexander Pope


The Vedas give information on various subjects. They have come together and form one book. And in later times, when other subjects were separated from religion - when astronomy and astrology were taken out of religion - these subjects, being connected with the Vedas and being ancient, were considered very holy.
~ Swami Vivekananda


So far as the personality is still potential, it can be called transcendent, and so far as it is unconscious, it is indistinguishable from all those things that carry its projections...that is, symbols of the outside world and the cosmic symbols. These form the psychological basis for the conception of man as a macrocosm through the astrological components of his character.
~ Carl Jung


The way that I see astrology is as a repository of thought and psychology. A system we've created as a culture as way to make things mean things.
~ Eleanor Catton


Courteous Reader, Astrology is one of the most ancient Sciences, held in high esteem of old, by the Wise and the Great. Formerly, no Prince would make War or Peace, nor any General fight in Battle, in short, no important affair was undertaken without first consulting an Astrologer.
~ Benjamin Franklin


Astrology: do we make a hullabaloo among the stars, or do they make a hullabaloo down here?
~ Mason Cooley


It's common knowledge that a large percentage of Wall Street brokers use astrology.
~ Donald T. Regan


I know nothing of the science of astrology and I consider it to be a science, if it is a science, of doubtful value, to be severely left alone by those who have any faith in Providence.
~ Mahatma Gandhi


I will look on the stars and look on thee, and read the page of thy destiny.
~ Letitia Elizabeth Landon


Before one accepts spirituality, astrology is very powerful, like a lion. Then when one enters into a deeper spiritual life, astrology becomes a tiny household cat.
~ Sri Chinmoy


Astrology is a science in itself and contains an illuminating body of knowledge. It taught me many things and I am greatly indebted to it.
~ Albert Einstein

~ Anne Sexton

If the people were a little more ignorant, astrology would flourish - if a little more enlightened, religion would perish.
~ Robert Green Ingersoll


Faithful horoscope-watching, practiced daily, provides just the sort of small but warm and infinitely reassuring fillip that gets matters off to a spirited start.
~ Shana Alexander


The vast majority, who believe in astrology and think that the planets have nothing better to do than form a code that will tell them whether tomorrow is a good day to close a business deal or not, become all the more excited and enthusiastic.
~ Isaac Asimov


Our jovial star reigned at his birth.
~ William Shakespeare


The starry vault of heaven is in truth the open book of cosmic projection...

~ Sri Yukteswar Giri

~ D. H. Lawrence


Astrologers are influenced by theosophy, so they say, "That is very simple, it is just vibration!" ... But what is vibration? They say it is light energy, perhaps electricity, they are not quite informed. At all events the vibrations that could influence us have never been seen, so it remains just a word.
~ Carl Jung


The stars in the heavens sing a music, if only we had ears to hear
