The Planets and how they affect us
It is no secret that the planets in our solar system have an effect on us as human beings. For centuries mankind has marveled at the planets and even went as far as to find out their influence on us. The mystery of the planets have lead us to develop and study things such as astrology,astronomy the zodiac etc. Even if you are not a believer of the zodiac its hard to contest the fact that the movement of the other planets affect our own ; through our advancements in science we have more than proved that fact. The Greeks & Romans have molded their God's to fit the "behavioral" patterns of the planets based on their influence. The bible even has multiple references to the Zodiac and closely follows the timeline of the planets movements (The birth and death of the Christ and the 12 disciples). The moon affects our low and high tides in our planets ocean, a humans body is roughly composed of 70% water so it would be ridiculous to think the moon doesn't affect our bodies. The term lunatic breaks down to Lunar-Ticks an accurate description of how the moon influences our mood. You need more proof ? It is no mistake that when our solar system aligned with Aquarius in February 4, 1962 the baby boom,hippie movement and society as a whole went through extreme changes and technical innovations. Aquarius rules innovative ideas, do you see the connection ? Below I have posted excerpts from Samael aun Weor's book titled "The Manual of Practical Magic" discussing the individual planets effect on us.
