Origin of Astrology
Most people who have asked that question have decided that it is not possible to determine “how” or “when” astrology originated. People have been looking at the Sun, Moon, planets and stars since the beginning of human life. For most of that time, humans believed that planet Earth was the center of the universe and the universe was revolving around it. That was the origin of “Earth-based” or geocentric astrology – which is the same traditional western astrology we have today. Of all the celestial experiences, the Sun, Moon, and the Moon phases would be the most predominant “heavenly influences” that regularly affected their daily lives. It would soon follow that people with the same celestial arrangement at birth were found to have similar personalities and experiences. It wouldn’t take humans millions of years to figure that out.
Then, it would naturally follow that all visible moving “heavenly bodies” travelling the same route as the Sun and Moon would also have “celestial” significance. Once the “fixed” constellations were identified, the “planets” could be placed on a “fixed” map called the natal chart. It was only natural to have the same number of astrology Houses (which, by the way, went from the eight Houses to twelve Houses over time). That was the birth of the traditional western astrology chart which greatly improved the recording and classification of more of the significant astronomical data at birth.
Ptolemy, a mathematician, astronomer, and astrologer, played a large role in identifying the “cycles” of the planets that were visible to the naked eye and where to place them on the astrology chart at birth. Today’s relatively advanced version of the traditional western astrology chart includes accurate astronomical data on the trans-Saturnian orbitals Neptune, Uranus, and Pluto and the asteroids – which are invisible to the naked eye. The natal chart stayed basically the same when the new planets were added.
One has to ask “Why?”. That hedges on abnormal. In fact, it hedges on compulsive behavior – which many astrologers do experience at the beginning of their astrological studies. Based on modern astrology, Uranus, Aquarius, and the 11th House play a major role in identifying who would most likely have a resonance with astrology. So what is it about these three archetypal influences that make people prone to astrology? Before recent events, it was intuited by astrologers. What happened recently that changed everything? What happened is the publishing of the I-Ching Tree of Life Workbook by Richard Stephen Crowl.
The I-Ching Tree of Life is being touted by its author as a comprehensive, cohesively-evolved package of “Creation Archetypes” created by God to fulfill his Divine Plan for a Perfect Living Universe. It may seem like it would or should be beyond human comprehension to know how God created a living universe, but physicists have already identified four of the twelve fundamental forces of physical Nature and most of us human beings can understand most of them. In addition to physicists deep understanding of physical Nature, some people also have an understanding of the major metaphysical archetypes of numerology, traditional western astrology, and now the I-Ching.
All of the primary archetypes of the astrology chart are located in the I-Ching Tree of Life Physical Body archetypes. The I-Ching Tree of Life includes all twelve astrology “Houses” as six sets of (yin / yang) opposite “Houses” matching the six sets of opposite “Houses” in the astrology chart. What are the chances of that alone happening by coincidence? Those coincidences continue as all 144 possible combinations of the “Signs on the -House Cusps” of the astrology chart are also included in the I-Ching Tree of Life – showing the correct resonances between the “Houses” and the “Signs” of the astrology chart throughout the 144 quantum archetypal states.
The coincidences in the I-Ching Tree of Life have already reached the level of “impossibility” and yet the coincidences continue as the planetary archetypes of astrology are also included as resonance with the twelve archetypal realms in the I-Ching Tree of Life Ascension Body. In the I-Ching Tree of Life, those twelve “planetary archetypal realms” guide us second-by-second, from within every physical atom in our bodies, as part of our ascension process. What is more, the I-Ching Tree of Life delineates those “planetary” archetypes correctly without the need for any previous knowledge of astrology. The final “coincidence” makes the entire I-Ching Tree of Life Physical Body and Ascension Body archetypal systems one absolutely cohesive, “entangled polarity-pair system” of resonant miracle “coincidences”. So it should be obvious that the I-Ching Tree of Life is the real source and meaning of the archetypes of Astrology, Numerology, and the I-Ching.
The archetypes are creative forces of unimaginable Creative Power functioning untouchable from deep within the Great Central Sun we call the Super-Galactic Center or the Big Bang. Archetypes move because they simultaneously coexist within everything. Archetypes don’t take up any space or time. Archetypes are not exteriorized. Archetypes are some of the most interiorized forces in existence. So, how did archetypes end up as exteriorized cycling “planetary” influences in astrology? The answer to that question is that it is a planet Earth thing. Human beings are born and raised on planet Earth and are susceptible to the TWO numerology archetypal influence of the Earth’s position in the Sun’s orbital planes. In the paragraphs that follow you will learn why planet Earth has that archetypal influence on human beings.
The concept of “planetary” influences is not as far-fetched as it may at first seem. It is not new information that the planets of our solar system orbit around the Sun distributed approximately in a binary harmonic pattern of distances out from the Sun. That special distribution was made a Physics Law by German astronomers in the 1700s before several of the new planets following that distribution Law were even discovered. According to the I-Ching Tree of Life, it’s natural for the physical planets to be located where they are in the solar system. Their orbital positions were predetermined by the binary harmonic light waves forming the Wavefield Electronic Body of the I-Ching Tree of Life.
Take a look at the I-Ching Tree of Life Wavefield Electronic Body sacred geometry in the graphics below. They show what the ideal binary harmonic wave system looks like. That’s a good approximation of the distribution of the planetary orbits in our solar system. The beginning harmonic wave progression in the Wavefield Electronic Body is located at the alternating yin/yang harmonic waves originated at the Mercury planetary orbit of the Sun. The “binary harmonic electromagnetic waves” that create the physical orbitals of the Sun develop from those harmonic waves. The Sun is located at the far left of the centerline in the Wavefield Electronic Body. Right after that, the Mercury orbit around the Sun begins the E/M “harmonic” orbital wavelengths.
The first “binary harmonic orbital” is the Venus orbital around the Sun. The second “binary harmonic orbital” is planet Earth orbital around the Sun, the third is Mars, etc. The Neptune orbit is a “dissonant note” in the “Music of the Spheres” messaging for the release from the influences of the seven binary harmonic realities created by the Sun. The Pluto orbital astrologically messages for “transformation to that which is beyond”. In this case, the beyond means beyond our star’s solar system consciousness and into the constellation consciousness. In the I-Ching Tree of Life beyond the seven physical orbitals of the Sun is going into the Ascension Body consciousness. If you have read the other blog posts by this author you will recognize the Ascension Body as our “inner or higher self”. The Ascension Body is the inner “seed” consciousness which explains so much of “why” our physical existence is the way it is.
The two graphics below are sacred geometry representing the duality states of electromagnetism (E/M) in the I-Ching Tree of Life. Both graphics depict the same I-Ching binary harmonic evolutionary progression, but at a different octave frequencies of the I-Ching Tree of Life. In the graphics below, the Wavefield Electronic Body of the I-Ching Tree of Life archetypes (right) show the metaphysical or wave nature of E/M. The Physical Body of the I-Ching Tree of Life (left) shows the photon or physical particle nature of E/M. Modern physicists puzzled over this duality of E/M for decades before finally accepting that E/M simultaneously co-exists as both wave and particle until it interacts with one or the other in Nature. Again, the “why” of this duality is unknown to physicists, but it is obvious in the I-Ching Tree of Life Ascension Body where the creation of the realm of existence called E/M is archetypally messaged.

You may be wondering why the planetary orbitals are defined as at the bottom of each binary harmonic waves. That sacred geometry goes all the way back to the I-Ching Tree of Life Ascension Body. For those who don’t know what that is, go to the author’s website if you want to learn more about where that came from. The bottom of the Ascension Body is deep physical reality – where physical orbitals are archetypally messaged to exist.
The I-Ching Tree of Life Ascension Body graphic shown below has the 1st physical realm resonating with the Venus planetary orbit of astrology – creating the first living physical form in the physical realms (lower half of diagram). E/M in the I-Ching Tree of Life must be a simultaneously, co-existing realm because it exists exactly on the midpoint between the top half (metaphysical) and the bottom half (physical) of the physical “seed body” – the Ascension Body. Balance must be maintained between the two equal halves of Nature. The archetype Venus is the perfect archetypal message for the first physical creation because, “Nothing permanent is ever created that is not created in Love.”
According to the I-Ching Tree of Life there is another realm in the Ascension Body that also must be simultaneously, co-existing and that is on the left end of that same horizontal line in the Ascension Body – the 7th physical realm resonating with the Uranus planetary orbit of astrology. The Uranus archetypal message in astrology is that of the Janus-faced God (gateway into the metaphysical realms) – meaning that it has an inherent function to “see” inwards into the metaphysical realms and “see” outwards into the physical realms, simultaneously. Thus the Uranus archetype, the astrological ruler of astrology itself (according to traditional western astrology), creates a “natural ability” to “see”, inward metaphysically and outward physically, simultaneously. Thus it is natural to see the correlation between the archetypal frequencies of the binary harmonic orbitals of planets (and all which that means in the I-Ching Tree of Life), and simultaneously, the archetypal frequencies of the human energy system resonating with them. The Human Energy system’s incredible resonance with the I-Ching Tree of Life Ascension Body is shown at the end of this post.
As in all I-Ching Tree of Life archetypes, the Ascension Body planetary archetype resonances have their function and character based on their location in the I-Ching Tree of Life (not intuitive interpretation). The first physical binary harmonic planetary orbit is Venus, so numerology ONE (1) would be the function and character of the Venus planetary archetype, TWO (2) would be the function and character of the Earth / Moon planetary orbit, etc., up through the SEVEN (7) physical archetypal orbit which would be the Uranus planetary orbit. Pluto meaning “beyond” would be the EIGHT (8) and the very slow moving Galactic Center would be resonance with maximum yang or NINE (9) – lifestream flowing through the crown chakra at the top of the head.
1. ONE (Venus) – creation, personal love, order, beauty, bonding, air element
2. TWO (Earth/Moon) – duality, external cycles, flexibility, feelings, water element
3. THREE (Mars) – energy, clarity, identity, catalyst, fire element
4. FOUR (Asteroid Belt) – structure, fixed, survival, deep physical, earth element
5. FIVE (Jupiter) – freedom, prosperity, expansion, beliefs, aspiration, fire element
6. SIX (Saturn) – collective unconscious, culture, control, tradition, earth element
7. SEVEN (Uranus) – metaphysical awareness, change, friendship love, air element
8. EIGHT (Pluto) – beyond, evolution, transformation, power, water element
9. NINE (Galactic Center) – life energy, invisibility, ascension, purification, healing, supply, love, peace, joy, harmony, life stream
Human Chakra Vortex System
So compare the planetary archetypes of the I-Ching Tree of Life Human Energy System above with the planetary archetypes of the I-Ching Tree of Life Ascension Body shown above previously. They are a precise match. So now you can see why archetypal awareness of the planet’ frequency’s is a natural human experience. It is also natural for human beings on planet earth to look to the sky (physical) for explanations for why events (physical) are happening in their lives. The origin of planet Earth’s TWO numerology externalized consciousness is built into the I-Ching Tree of Life and, thus, us. The I-Ching Tree of Life archetypal messages are built into our body instruments trillions upon trillions of times so that we can also “see and delineate” the correlation between the planetary archetypes and our outer physical experiences.
The problem with the planet Earth externalized consciousness is that it creates no inclination to look inward where the real truth of the archetypes is located. The planet Earth TWO numerology message is of physical externalization – physical manifestation. This is great if we realize that all Life comes through our Life Stream from our own inner Essence Self. Life energy straight from the Essence Energy sustains our bodies and is the Source of all permanent manifestation. In other words, “We do not live by bread alone.” In fact, we do not need bread at all if we have an ample Life Stream flow. Unfortunately Earth-based manifestation is a manifestation of our unconscious intent as part of the Sacred Dream until we awaken and begin our conscious constructive co-creation which expands our Life Stream flow. At that point we will be aware of the importance of the Tree of Life.
