This thesis is dedicated to all men and women who have contributed to the
knowledge of astronomy and astrology with the noble aim of enlightening us
for a better life on this planet and for the progress and upliftment of civilization from the dawn of time to eternity.
Astrology deals with the observation and correlation of energy exchanging between the
planets of the solar system, the stars in the constellations and life here on Earth. There are astrological markings uncovered which have been found to date back as far as 3000 B.C. The Chaldeans (later known as the Babylonians) kept records which date back to 700 B.C.
Wise men of this period were known as astrologer priests and they were highly esteemed in
the community. Their knowledge was based on observations of the positions of stars and
planets which they used to cast horoscopes and natal charts for kings and rulers. The priests
of the Egyptian Pharaohs were instructed in astrology by the Babylonians for it was a part of
their religion. It is imperative for us to have a glimpse of the dawn of time and the original role that stars played in human lives just to understand the importance of fixed stars and constellations in astrology. Long before there were horoscopes, aspects, houses or signs, dedicated priest astrologers of virtually every civilization, observed and measured sky patterns. The first
picture book of man was the sky and man used to spend hours of the night observing the ever
moving heavenly spectacle. Mysterious risings, settings, and circling of the heavens were
weighed against mundane phenomena of earth, sea and mankind. The ancient wisdom recorded by earliest scribes, known only to these most learned priests of the earliest civilizations has come into our hands.
