Astrology; hadn’t been launched as a science but as a fortune or the act of foretelling up to now. Throughout the history many thinker ,savant and the attendants of truth has mentioned about how stars affect on people and has mentioned this science should be learned to be able to know himself. In fact, everyone has a tendency to learn the secrets of universe and so that they have interested in astrology.
It’s still unknown when astrology is exactly showed up but according to some sources it was used and utilized by big civilizations in old ages.
Astrology is old as human history. Babylonian, Egyptian, Indian, Mayan, Chinese Roman, Greek and Arabic civilizations are the samples of countries which had studied this science in the history. According to some sources Hz. Idris is the one who was gifted with this science and after that Babylonians had organised and generalized it. Then it passed from Babylon to Egyptians and later to Greeks and Islamic world. Finally at the epoch of Rome Empire it became famous in whole Europe.
In “that” days , in India astrology was accepted as an important science and the people who had occupied this became very honourable and prestigious among the citizens.
Also there had been plenty of enlighteners who had studied on it in Islamic World. Muhyiddin Arabi was one of them who had mentioned about effects of signs on human in his book named Futuhat-ý Mekkiye .In this book he clearly says ; “The life in earth and all the human beings are under authority of signs and their power which is transported by angels due to divine judgement and precaution . The people who left their physical bodies and are waiting for the doomsday ;and also the heaven and the hell themselves are effected by the power of signs, too.
Also Mevlana Celaleddin Rumi speaks about Astrology in his book Mesnevi and says: “One’s nature is decided by the star which he/she is bound to (influenced).”
Famous Islam philosopher Hazrat Ýbrahim Hakký explains in his book “Marifetname” that; “because all the sky objects has many kinds of effects on all earthy objects ; shapes, statements, ethics, behaviours are emanated due to coincidental faith of creatures (due to the effects of stars at that moment) while they were just a blood clot (zygote) in their mom’s womb. And the blood cloth is affected by its parent’s genes also. Eventually, all the featured characteristics of human bliss, brigandage, being considerate, meanness, generosity, bravery, cowardice, enmity, being loving ,ambitiousness, richness and poverty ,enormity and helpfulness…,are all prototyped and stored in that cloth. Because this blood cloth is the written stone (Levhi Mahfuz) of foetus. And the decided faith ,the written stone, is the outlet and mirror of the worlds. So a person who is destined to heaven deserves it when he is in the womb so as the one who is destined to hell.”
To be able to understand better what has been written up to now, to get a better sight on Astrology and accept its necessity I think it is beneficial to mention about the human and more importantly its relationship with brain. Because, all the processes in human existence and his character occur owing to the brain. Astrology is closely related to humanbeing’s nature or it can be seen as the main theme of ourbeings
If we need to explain the anatomy of the brain ,we can briefly say that , it
is composed of basically two compartments :Brain cortex and subcortical
structures. Cortex is the centre of all conscious activities like thinking,
perceiving , voluntary movement …
And also due brain, which never stops working , hundred millions of input are estimated with a capacity which hasn’t been performed by modern computers so far. Without observing microscopically we cannot estimate properly.
The brain contains highly specific cells called neurons which are composed of a body(soma) and a few extensions (axon) bound to it. The transmission occurs in the area where neurons bind to eachother. This area is called as synapse .Each neuron produces a specific chemical compound (neurotransmitter).These compounds have different structures and different functions. When the neurotransmitter is secreted to synaptic area it causes a sequence of chemical and electrical reactions. Then neurotransmitter goes and binds to the second cell and causes a redistribution of electrical charges in cell membrane. Redistribution of charges means the target neuron is being stimulated or in other words it is receiving the message. So, an information transmission process occurs in brain based on bioelectrical principals. This network (built up by each neuron connecting to thousands of others); provides learning, memory storage, synthesis and analysis of information. The arrangement of this bioelectrical channels (neural communication network) are different in each person and it determines the character of that person. This arrangement and the binding model is defined as “The Brain Program”.
Although the emotions are commonly thought to be related to soul ,brain is the area they occur or they have been “perceived” actually. Hypothalamus and gyrus cinguli are the two area of brain where all the emotional processes occur. The specific arrangement and binding of neurons in this areas decides what we ‘re going to feel about an event or a situation. And cortex acts some behaviours according to this decision.
To sum up, human brain is exposed to a first basic programming procedure in the womb for And after birth brain completes its anatomical development during the fist year. The binding formation of neurons and extremities of neurons called axons and dendrites, takes a different shape in each person before the birth. And this formation becomes definite by birth and can not change after that . Also neurons can not be regenerated .As a result, our capabilities are determined by this neuronal binding models .Thoughts, personal perspectives,helplessness, deftness ,intelligence …. All this specialities are determined in the womb and can’t change in normal conditions. And we keep on living,thinking ,feeling, learning, working , loving with the capacity and way that is determined by our brain program.
Also a sura (named BURUC ) and verses about stars are present in Koran. If you wish, you can research and focus on this subject to be able understand better the whole system of universe .These information and much more of them shows how much important and necessary the knowledge of Astrology is. Such a big happiness to be able to read and understand it!!…
We briefly aimed to tell you about the history and importance of astrology, and especially mention about its relationship with brain which shows why it’s necessary to focus carefully on this subjects nowadays.
According to this all we want to explain is Astrology is definitely not a fortune but just a statistical interpretation way about the relationship between the localisations of planets at the birth moment and the characteristics of a person. This provides a better sight on knowing ourselves and our existence and understand who we are and why are we here, in the World. It also helps to see our real potential. Astrology is also a different perspective that aimed to solve the obscurity of The Existence .And because of being created from the same essence human and the universe behave similar to eachother and as a result, the actions of human in earth become a reflection of what happens in the sky. If we speak directly; Astrology examines the universe with its own language and claims that everything in universe is interacts eachother. Also researches the effects of Moon’s , planets’ and stars’ on the people and the earth. The planets around the Sun emits cosmical beams continuously. Because each planet has a different type of cosmical beam of course the effect of this beams are different.In astrological interpretations all planets has different kinds of effect according to their cosmical beams .
In Astrology each house, each sign and each star has a meaning and we can only
make interpretations due to the examinations, observations based on the
experiences of thousands years of history and by using statistical information
and based on some reasons... But of course the easiest way is denying it and
assume it just as a fortune for the people that never think deeply and never
try to learn and search what Astrology really is.
