Critical appraisal of traditional Astrology

Historically, Astrologers have been concerned by worldly affairs, not by personal horoscopes, and were interested in personal affairs only to the extent that the persons had a sizable impact on large-scale events, such as kings and religious leaders. What is known today as mundane Astrology, was, during most of history, Astrology itself, while what is today criticized as "Astrology" is a Modern, person-centered practice that is in contradiction with basic premises of the Astrological traditions found throughout the World. For this reason, a critical appraisal of Astrology must necessarily address the claims made my mundane astrologers and astrologers of the past, such as Isaac Newton *, of a parallel between worldly affairs and planetary cycles, conjunctions and multiple conjunctions.

Possible correlation of the rarest planetary conjunction in History with major cultural changes

Prominent Astrologers have pointed out that the rarest planetary event to occur during the last millenia correlated with many events of uncontroversial philosophical and religious significance. During or shortly after the triple conjunction of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto (which cycles are of 84, 164 and 249 years, respectively) took place, in 575 BC, major philosophical and religious shifts occurred in various cultures in the World:

Buddhism; Gautama Buddha (circa 563 BCE to 483 BCE)

Confucianism; Confucius (551 BCE 479 BCE)

Taoism; Lao Tzu (6th century BC; dates are disputed)

Pythagoreanism; Pythagoras (between 580 and 572 BC between 500 and 490 BC)

Destruction of Solomon's Temple (585-586); Prophet Jeremiah

*Newton, Isaac. (1733) Observations upon the Prophecies of Daniel/Part I Chap II - Of the Prophetic Language. "For understanding the Prophecies, we are, in the first place, to acquaint our-selves with the figurative language of the Prophets. ... This language is taken from the analogy between the world natural, and an empire or kingdom considered as a world politic. In the heavens, the Sun and Moon are, by interpreters of dreams, put for the persons of Kings and Queens; but in sacred Prophecy, which regards not single persons, the Sun is put for the whole species and race of Kings, in the kingdom or kingdoms of the world politic, shining with regal power and glory; the Moon for the body of the common people, considered as the King's wife; the Stars for subordinate Princes and great men, or for Bishops and Rulers of the people of God, when the Sun is Christ; light for the glory, truth, and knowledge, wherewith great and good men shine and illuminate others; darkness for obscurity of condition, and for error, blindness and ignorance; darkning, smiting, or setting of the Sun, Moon, and Stars, for the ceasing of a kingdom, or for the desolation thereof, proportional to the darkness; darkning the Sun, turning the Moon into blood, and falling of the Stars, for the same; new Moons, for the return of a dispersed people into a body politic or ecclesiastic."
