Just some Christmas thoughts… There may perhaps be readers who would interpret exegesis as a sort of philosophical exercise of a couple of distinguished scientists. The average, so-called “practicing astrologer” may not feel a need for such a discussion because he or she does not see any immediate “practical” application. It is important however, that such place exists and that does involve thinking process, so much needed in this area of interest and activity. Astrology, by many, is accepted “as it is,” without any questioning. A few of astrologers bother with asking question: “Why?” This person who in the first place should ask this sacramental “why” is the “practicing astrologer.” – I have to add from my own personal experience (of the practicing astrologer), that once you ask, you keep asking and… changing pseudo-rules of astrological dogma, because such does not exist.
