The Zodiac has always been a conundrum to me! It constitutes the “gran nexus” of Astrology but we know next to nothing about it! We are fairly sure (we, the Astrologers) that it exists, but if somebody asks us “Where exactly is the Zodiac lying?” we will be left rather clueless…You see, we don’t really know! What we know is that the Zodiac is some kind of “belt”! A non-magnetic belt obviously, because if it were one it would have been detected by now. And if it is not a magnetic belt then what is it made from (since there aren’t many alternatives)? And ultimately, where exactly is this belt? Is it over our heads, over our highest mountain, up in the stratosphere, in the near-Earth space, somewhere within the distant space or simply everywhere?
For the last couple of decades I’ve been giving lectures trying to explain to the public the profound mystery of the Zodiac (why is it so perfectly geometrical, why is it cyclical and twelve-fold with each sign comprising exactly 30 degrees, how could possibly exist such a perfectly geometrical structure up there on the sky, what is the Zodiac made of etc.). In those lectures, I was usually relying on Plato’s theory of the “solids” and especially on the famous “Dodecahedron” to offer an explanation. That was my very best shot back then but still, I could not make the ends meet! Little did I know though that very soon science itself would somehow justify both Plato and Astrology!
I am a sort of science nerd, so I am reading almost every scientific article I am laying my hands on. A couple of days ago I was browsing the “wired.com” site in the hope of finding interesting astronomy articles when I stumbled upon an article on a relatively new theory called the “conformal symmetry of time-space”! I was immediately flabbergasted by this theory, which is sustaining that there is an inherent geometrical pattern hidden deep within the fabric of time-space! And in this actually “polyhedral” pattern might lie the secret mechanism that makes Astrology tick!

Let me quote an excerpt of interest:
“The discovery was so unexpected that (researcher)Polyakov initially didn’t believe it. His suspicion, shared by others, was that “maybe this happens because there is some hidden symmetry that we didn’t find yet.”
Everyone is excited because these kinks are unexpected and interesting, and they tell you where interesting theories live,” said Nima Arkani-Hamed, a professor of physics at the Institute for Advanced Study. “It could be reflecting a polyhedral structure of the space of allowed conformal field theories, with interesting theories living not in the interior or some random place, but living at the corners.”
Science has advanced so much lately that has reached some rather weird and even paranormal fields…And contrary to the expectations of the skeptics, the more science advances the closer it comes to Astrology, ever more justifying it! The exciting discovery of the “polyhedral symmetry fields” that are lurking within the fabric of time-space might soon lead us to the longed-for scientific explanation of why and how Astrology works!
