Here on the East Coast of the United States we “fall back” today, adjusting our clocks an hour early. This always brings to my mind the relativity of time and space, the tools of the astrologer, and even more so because one of my children was born in the early hours of the morning on the day the clocks changed! I recall wondering on that special day, ‘So what time do I draw up the chart for…?’
Astrology is on one level about the study of Light, the rays of the Sun streaming out and touching Mercury, Venus, Earth, our Moon, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, and how the particular quality of that light affects life here on Earth. When we draw up a birth chart we are looking at the quality of light at the time the baby took their first breath. Clock time is arbitrary and relative, but is used to gather the astronomical data needed to draw up a chart so that it can be interpreted.
I remain in constant awe of the “writing of God in the skies”. We can change the clocks but the majestic cosmic cycles are beyond our interference. Enjoy the beautiful light today!
