The title only addresses a portion of this fascinating talk by Willi Sucher, the father of Astrosophy. In this rare (possibly the only) footage filmed in 1984, Sucher gives a brief summary of his life and work; explains the difference between astrology and astrosophy - the former focusing on present influences on human beings of planetary relationships, the latter a discovery of the rhythms Cosmic Christianity within the lives of individuals and humanity as a whole; and discusses the nature of these influences at the end of the millennium. This is a talk that is so interesting you will want to know much more about both the man and his work.
Cosmic Christianity & the Changing Countenance of Cosmology
$16.95Add a review
Cosmic Christianity attempts to understand the connection between the earthly and the extraterrestrial worlds by understanding how the cosmic world - expressed in the movements of the stars - and the deeds of Christ during the three years of his ministry are related. The gestures of each of the classical planets during these years are worked out, and correlated with the specific deeds of Christ as recorded in the Gospels. For example, the apparent looping movements of the planet Mercury are connected to the so-called "seven signs" or miracles described in the Gospel of St. John. Sucher then explores the many ways in which these healing deeds, inscribed in the heavens during the "three years," continue to work on in evolution through historical events and human biographies. Through studying this we realize how human beings are responsible for developing the new Christian mysteries, thereby renewing the cosmos of the stars.
Practical Approach 1
Star Journals One - Toward a New Astrosophy
$15.00Add a review
The first of three books containing nine years of monthly periodicals. This volume contains the monthly Star Journals published from August 1965 to May 1968. The first 14 issues were first republished in a booklet called Star Journals in 1986. Also included are perspectives of both the geocentric and heliocentric views and the progression of Saturn through the constellations.
In the many years of astrological investigation, we have come to the conclusion that, unless definite and precise questions are formulated, a chart can become a veritable ocean of facts in which the mind of the investigator can easily be drowned and lose all capacity of useful interpretation. An incarnation asterogram is a part of the great cosmos; it cannot possibly be exhausted by the human mind. But we can approach it with well-formulated questions and problems and expect relevant and productive answers.
Practial Approach II
Star Journals Two - Toward a New Astrosophy

This volume contains the monthly periodicals from June 1968 to October 1970 and includes the progression of Jupiter through the constellations, exploring both the geocentric and heliocentric views, progression of the nodes and apsides of the planets in history, and many historic examples.
...as we move toward the end of the 20th century, the principal question that must arise is: What is the meaning of past history, both in a personal and in a humanity sense, [as it is] being woven as karma into the present? This is the fundamental question concerning all astrology also. It simply means that we are not designed to live only our small, narrow existence. We live to fulfill tasks that concern the whole Earth and even the cosmos. By constantly battling and making decisions in facing the challenges of existence, we insert ourselves into the greater processes of cosmic evolution. In addition to this, we have reached a point in history where we must learn to formulate and practice the decisions out of our own inner resources of spiritual activity and from a deeper insight than the intellect only.

Part One comprises monthly ·letters· from November 1970 to July 1972. The ·letters· in Part Two were previously published in the book called Practical Approach Toward a New Astrosophy. This material is essential for research and practical application of planetary influences.
. . . ·each incarnation complex of a starry nature is an "individuality" in itself and must be interpreted and handled individually. Nevertheless, the general picture can give us a beginning, and by persistent study and practice one can gradually grow into a kind of perception that comes close to what one may very cautiously call an intuitive awareness. One will then realize the significance of a statement of Rudolf Steiner's that a true astrology will require the development of the highest spiritual capacities of cognition that we of the present age can possibly attain. One will then also become aware of the sublime nature of a true astrology, which should not be misused for superficial, insincere, and dilettante purposes, but which is a helping hand for profound spiritual research and accomplishment. It is not a "profession" in an ordinary sense; it is a "vocation" of humanity and world significance·
