Astrology is 40,000 years old, evidence in ancient cave art

University of Edinburgh November 27, 2018

This article released today blows my mind and is a perfect example of today’s SUN JUPITER MERCURY RETROGRADE which literally means rethinking a historical idea. 

We are so programmed to see things in one way only. Archeologists have said that the animal representations in cave art are literal as these people were only hunter-gatherers. The constellations were always seen as animals and we call them the Zodiac -zoology which means animals today.

Scientists have discovered that as far back as 40,000 years ago, humans kept track of time using relatively sophisticated knowledge of the stars.

Some of the world’s oldest cave paintings have revealed how ancient people had relatively advanced knowledge of astronomy. Animal symbols represent star constellations in the night sky and are not literal and are used to mark dates and events such as comet strikes, analysis from the University of Edinburgh suggests.
This is such a phenomenal change in the way we have viewed “prehistoric” people as unsophisticated. If we take literally the images of animals we see them as hunters only. All ancient culture believe that we came from the stars and so it would be natural for them to track celestial phenomena. In not too ancient times astronomy and astrology were the same thing.

“The artworks, at sites across Europe, are not simply depictions of wild animals, as was previously thought. Instead, the animal symbols represent star constellations in the night sky, and are used to represent dates and mark events such as comet strikes, analysis suggests.

They reveal that, perhaps as far back as 40,000 years ago, humans kept track of time using knowledge of how the position of the stars slowly changes over thousands of years.

The findings suggest that ancient people even understood the Precession of the Equinoxes a 25,920-year shift understood an effect caused by the gradual shift of the earth’s rotational axis. This discovery was previously attributed to the Ancient Greeks. Thousands of years later. 

this blows my mind and is a perfect example of today SUN JUPITER MERCURY RETROGRADE conjunct which is extremely rare.
