What first springs to mind when you read the word ‘astrology’? Perhaps the horoscope columns
in the newspapers? Accusations of mumbo-jumbo or ‘pseudoscience’? Fortune tellers at a fair?
Or are you one of the increasing number of people who are gradually realizing that beneath all the stereotypical opinions and criticisms there is a real science waiting to be found?
If you fall into this final category, this site will interest you! Once you start to investigate astrology on the web, you quickly find, of course, that there are a number of schools and organizations which promote astrology. What is distinctive about this one?
The White Eagle School, almost uniquely among those in the UK, treats astrology from a spiritual viewpoint. The history of astrology suggests that although it should not be regarded in any way as a ‘religion’, as has been suggested, it was almost always used to serve a spiritual philosophy, although the nature of that philosophy varied according to the times and to geography.
The White Eagle School of Astrology both teaches astrology and provides astrological services to the public such as written readings of horoscopes – real ones, that is, not the Sun-sign material that appears in the popular press, or computer-generated readings – and face-to-face astrological consultations.
Astrology is not fortune-telling; it is not magic; it does not imply the loss of freewill. It simply explores a relationship that exists between the movements of the stars and planets and the unfoldment of life.
For we humans in particular, a horoscope provides a ‘road map’ for our path through life, a kind of celestial satnav, knowledge of which can be extremely helpful, especially at times of difficulty and for enhancing self-knowledge.
