Astrology is the first science of humanity; sun worship, our first religion.
Sun worship was practiced by ancient cultures in every corner of the world. The similarities in the different cultures’ symbolism of solar deities, amulets, and rituals is profound, considering their inability to communicate or even be conscious of one another’s existence at that time.
In exploring these similarities, it is impossible to ignore the remarkable parallels between astrology and Christianity, and question the motive behind the push to relinquish this incredible interconnected fabric of individual and communal spirituality in an effort to convert all of humanity into a monotheistic organized religion.
I think it is important to consider the ways in which our history has shaped the world that we live in today, and to question and study the forces that have shifted us away from our origin, away from our connection with the earth, and our connection with each other and our selves.
What or who do you worship? What is the origin of your spiritual practices?
The Solstice is a symbol of the origin of our humanity.
The Solstice is an ode to our long, buried but not lost, origin story and the rituals and practices of our ancestors. Let us now remember our story.
