Description

Journal for Star Wisdom 2015 includes articles of interest concerning star wisdom (Astrosophy), as well as a guide to the correspondences between stellar configurations during the life of Christ and those of today. This guide comprises a complete sidereal ephemeris and aspectarian, geocentric and heliocentric, for each day throughout the year. Published yearly, new editions are available beginning in October or November for the coming new year.

According to Rudolf Steiner, every step taken by Christ during his ministry between the baptism in the Jordan and the resurrection was in harmony with -- and an expression of -- the cosmos. The Journal for Star Wisdom is concerned with these heavenly correspondences during the life of Christ. It is intended to help provide a foundation for cosmic Christianity, the cosmic dimension of Christianity. It is this dimension that has been missing from Christianity in its two-thousand-year history.

Readers can begin on this path by contemplating the movements of the Sun, Moon, and planets against the background of the zodiacal constellations (sidereal signs) today in relation to corresponding stellar events during the life of Christ. In this way, the possibility is opened for attuning, in a living way, to the life of Christ in the etheric cosmos.

In this year’s journal there is an article concerning the relationship between the zodiacal ages and the cultural epochs by Robert Powell, and an article by Estelle Isaacson about the early stages of Christ’s Ascension into cosmic dimensions. Claudia McLaren Lainson’s article relates events of our time against the background of St. Paul’s experience of Christ at the gates of Damascus. Richard Tarnas’s article, “The Evolving Tradition,” offers important perspectives on the development of astrology in our time. There is also an article by Kevin Dann, which looks at the universal significance of the vortex -- following up on an indication given by Rudolf Steiner. Nicholas Kollerstrom has contributed an article, “Power of the Sun,” concerning research into a new understanding of our Sun.

Two articles by Brian Keats contribute to research into aspects of biodynamic farming in connection with cosmic rhythms. The monthly commentaries for the year 2015 by Claudia McLaren Lainson are supported by monthly astronomical previews provided by Sally Nurney that offer opportunities to observe and experience the stellar configurations physically during 2015. This direct interaction between the human being on Earth and the heavenly beings of the stars develops our capacity to receive their wisdom-filled teachings.

"If you lift your arm and point upward, you have up there the realm of particular Thrones, Cherubim, and Seraphim. If you move and again point upward, you would find other Thrones, Cherubim, and Seraphim above you.... Suppose you wanted to point to some particular Thrones, Cherubim, and Seraphim. They are by no means identical, like a group of twelve similar soldiers, for instance. They differ considerably from one another. Each bears its individual stamp, so that as one looks upward from various points, one sees quite separate beings. In order to locate particular Thrones, Cherubim, and Seraphim, one denotes them by a particular constellation. It is like a signpost. In that direction over there are the Thrones, Cherubim, and Seraphim known as the Twins, over there, the Lion, and so on. The constellations of the zodiac are more than mere signposts.... It is important to realize that, when we refer to the zodiac, we are speaking of spiritual beings." -- Rudolf Steiner, Spiritual Hierarchies and the Physical World, April 17, 1909
