Story of Garden of Eden
Astrology and spirituality in the biblical story of the Garden of Eden

This article presents an original astrological and spiritual perspective on the story of Adam and Eve, giving a different insight on it. Before that, it is useful to remind the biblical text from the Old Testament, Genesis, chapters 2 and 3.
The biblical story
History of the Eden garden
When this story is read by an astrologer, he would understand the following (and it really sounds more real than any other perspective I have read so far…):
So the story tells us that God created Adam and Eve, and put them in the garden of Eden. In the middle of the garden there were the tree of knowledge of good and evil and the tree of life.
From an astrological point of view we consider that the first man ever created may be symbolized by a circle with a point in it: garden of eden (the Sun) Then God created the woman which astrologically is associated with this sign the moon (the Moon). The glyph of the Moon is very similar to a rib, therefore it was said that the woman was created from a man's rib.
But why would Venus be the tree of life?
In Egypt, there is this symbol named ankh, or the crux ansata, whose glyph is very similar to Venus': ansata ankh is the force of the eternal life.
Also, for thousands of years humans know and use the golden number and the golden proportion, which represents a divine proportion and is found everywhere in the nature. Its value is 1.618339 and has countless uses in art, architecture, pyramids. The pyramidal energy is a healing and life supporting energy (the pyramid effect). The very same proportion is also found in the movement of Venus and the Earth around the Sun.
Zodiac Signs and Meanings
Sidereal Astrology

The Sidereal or Eastern system of astrology is based on the position of the belt of fixed stars and constellations in the heavens, whereas the Tropical zodiac or the Western astrological system is based upon the position of the Sun in relation to the Earth. Sidereal astrology is the system of astrology used by some western astrologers which bases their interpretation around the use of the sidereal zodiac. It was introduced to the West by the Irish astrologer Cyril Fagan in 1944 and is practiced by a minority of Western astrologers. Sidereal astrology ties its signs of the zodiac to the actual constellations and is more complex, yet more mathematically oriented than Western astrology.
Secret Language of Birthdays

If you’re a non-believer in astrology, spend a little time with the Secret Language of Birthdays by Gary Goldschneider and Joost Eiffers. We guarantee it’ll make a believer outta you.
It’s a weighty tome, to be sure. Each birthday gets two full pages of on-target information as well as the usual celebrity birthdates, etc. Now this is a good book to have. Even better is one of the companion books, the Secret Language of Relationships.
Planets, Moon, Mercury
When most of us think of astrology, we think about our natal sign and not much else. Do you know what some of the major influences are though, that define these Zodiac signs.
First and foremost is the Sun. It is the center of all life and represents a person’s personality and spirit. It is the planetary ruler of the sign Leo.
Origins, Babylonians
The Babylonians are generally acknowledged to have originated the practice and science of astrology. Their astrological charts enabled them to predict the recurrence of seasons and certain celestial events. So, in the beginning and for more than 2,000 years, astrology and astronomy were the same science.
Numerology
Pythagoras, the father of mathematics is also the father of esoteric numerology. He believed that there was an order to the universe and that number were more than a means of quantifying things. His philosophies included the idea that each number had an esoteric meaning.
Natal chart

In astrology, your natal chart (sometimes called birth chart) is a graph that shows the positions of the planets and astrological houses in the sky at the moment of your birth. Your natal chart is much more detailed and accurate than your horoscope. A popular horoscope considers only the position of the Sun, whereas your natal chart includes hundreds of pieces of data. Mark Twain once said: The difference between a good word and the right word is like the difference between fire and firefly. Similarly, your popular horoscope may hold some hints of truth, but your natal chart tells us the real story of your natural personality.
Love signs
The stars can provide much insight about ourselves, including how, when, and with whom we are most likely to fall in love. Of course, astrology is not destiny, so while the one you love may not be a classic match for you in astrological terms, that doesn't mean all is lost. By understanding the
