"The significance of astrology is that it can transform the profane into the sacred, the facts of astronomy into the revelation of a cosmic order manifest in the cell and the human person as well as in the solar system and the galaxy. To try to make astrology a "science" based on empirical facts and statistics is to deny its essential and ancient nature. Astrolgy deals with the mythos of the sky. The elements it uses ar archetypes. Therefore, to live one's life in terms of the revelatory message symbolically implied in one's birthchart is to live a life in terms of the "sacred" character of existence. It does not mean to avoid confrontation with existential facts and to escape into fanciful dreams of pseudo-occult transcendance. It demands instead that life be lived strictly on the basis of non-escapism-that is, an attitude of acceptance of what is, but an "is" that remains transparent to the "eternal".
