My Jupsat Pro Astronomy Software Review

Highly Recommended

The interface is user friendly with its intuitive layout. Also, the addition of the prompt, with expert advice sets it apart from all the other similar programs. The Jupsat Pro Astronomy Software installation process is clean and without any unpleasant surprises like hidden toolbars, adds or anything like that. However, the installation process takes a bit longer than expected and you actually have to go through ten steps before the installation is complete, but that can hardly be considered a downside though.

I personally recommend to buy this software. The quality is excellent and for this low price and 100% Money back guarantee, you have nothing to lose.

For no one knows where the Sumerians came from, and they vanished just as mysteriously as they appeared, after the Assyrian invasions which decimated their culture, yet providing the Assyrians with much of their mythology and religion so much so that Sumerian became the official language of the state church, much as Latin is today of the Roman Catholic Church. They had a list of their kings before the Flood, which even they carefully chronicled, as did many another ancient civilisation around the world. It is believed that they had a sophisticated system of astronomy (and astrology) as well as an equally religious rituale. Magick, as well in history, begins at Sumer for the Western World, for it his here, in the sand-buried cuneiform tablets that recorded an Age, that the first Creation Epic is found, the first exorcism, the first ritual invocations of planetary deities, the first dark summonings of evil Powers, and ironically, the first burnings of people the anthropologists call...

The Basis of Calculations Time

A horoscope is simply a chart of the heavens calculated by the rules of astronomy. It shows certain positions of the planets and zodiacal signs in relation to the earth. These positions are not permanent, however. If they were, the location of the heavenly bodies could be determined once for all time without need of further calculation. The influence of the planets upon the Earth would then also remain constant, and there would be no use for astronomy or astrology. But as the Earth makes a complete revolution upon its axis each 24 hours, every point in the northern heavens may be seen once a day from any point in the northern half of the Earth, and every star in the southern heavens rises and sets each day in every part of the southern half of our globe. The Earth and its sister planets revolve around the sun at such varying rates that their positions relative to the Earth and to one another are constantly changing. Every day the heavens are different from every other day. If a child...

The Magical Theory Of The Universe

It is so with all scientific knowledge. A blind man might cram up astronomy for the purpose of passing examinations, but his knowledge would be almost entirely unrelated to his experience, and it would certainly not give him sight. A similar phenomenon is observed when a gentleman who has taken an honours degree in modern languages at Cambridge arrives in Paris, and is unable to order his dinner. To exclaim against the Master Therion is to act like a person who, observing this, should attack both the professors of French and the inhabitants of Paris, and perhaps go on to deny the existence of France.

What Is The Johannite Tradition

In those times this knowledge included mathematics, building, agriculture, construction of waterways for irrigation, sewers, astronomy, as well as religious rites and the symbols behind them. This knowledge also included the mysteries surrounding procreation, which were indeed mysteries in those times, even if today they are widely known.

Astrology Lesson No

The ancient Ptolemaic system of astronomy in vogue until modern times was based upon this conception of the universe, and subscribed to by all until superseded by the Copernican theory. Skeptics and scoffers who have never taken time nor trouble to investigate, arrogantly maintain that since the Copernican theory has proved that the planets, including the Earth, move around the Sun, that fact in itself is prima facie evidence of the fallacy of astrology, which they term as exploded superstition.

The Formula Enochian Magic Table

This manual is meant to provide a convenient and reasonably complete source of all information required by the serious practitioner of Enochian Magick. The branch of Magick called Enochian was disclosed in modere times by Dr. John Dee (1527-1608). Dee was an authority on mathematics, navigation, astronomy, and optics. He was also the Astrologer Royal to Elizabeth 1. His magical Partner, Edward Talbott, who changed his name to Kelly, assisted him in the descriptions of the subtle regions known as the four Watchtowers and thirty Aethyrs. These, together with their presiding deities, formed the kernel of the powerful magical system now known as Enochian Magick. Dee has been called a pioneerin spiritualism,because he kept meticulous records of all of his magical operations. However, his primary approach was through the process known as skying. Kelly would sit before a crystal, or shew-stone, and describe whatever spirits or visions he saw. Dee scrupulously recorded all that Kelly told...

The Earth versus the

The best way to understand these two world-views is to contemplate the two possible approaches to nature. The ascending perspective is based traditionally on iconography related to the sky and stars, it represents (in religious terminology) the transcending of earth and the return to a world beyond the physical. In early traditions, its gods were those of the sky and earth gods are seen as subservient to the sky deities. A classic example of a sky cult is found in Ancient Egypt with its emphasis on going beyond death and returning to the stars. This is also illustrated in the focus early religions had on astronomy and astrology, this is well illustrated in such landmarks as Stonehenge, the Mayan and Egyptian Pyramids and other sites too numerous to list. While the seasons may have been celebrated, they were seen as representing the cycles that had to be overcome and the earth was traditionally seen in a negative or at least, ambivalent role. In general, reproduction was seen...

Clairvoyance Of The Past

The clairvoyant perception of the facts, events and happenings of past time. There is no difference in the nature of this strange phenomenon, whether the past time be but five minutes or else five thousand years. How is it possible to see a thing that no longer exists The just how of this strange happening. Nothing could be perceived if it had actually disappeared from existence. But nothing entirely disappears in fact. On the astral plane are recorded all things, events and happenings since the beginning of the present world-cycle. The Akashic Records or the Astral Light constitute the great record books of the past. The clairvoyant gaining access to these may read the past like a book. Analogies in physical science. Interesting scientific facts. What astronomy teaches on the subject. How the records of the past are stored. How they are read by the clairvoyant. A fascinating subject clearly presented and explained.

The Relaxation Ritual

I am firmly convinced that one day magick will be understood in Western scientific terms. History proves this. Reading, writing, mathematics, astronomy, chemistry, medicine, physics and more were all at one time deep occult secrets. Today, many of these things are taught to children before they begin school. The occultism of the past becomes the science of the future. Arthur C. Clarke, the famous science fiction writer and author of 2001 A Space Odyssey, said that any sufficiently

Outer Space and Distance Limitations

The solar system is an enormous area and its planets are tiny dots moving in space. They can be difficult to identify with the naked eye, even from orbit. Because our planet rotates once every twenty-four hours, while also orbiting the Sun, the positions of the planets and stars change rapidly and are never in exactly the same place twice. To project to a planet by line of sight, with no navigational instruments to show the way, a real-time projector must have a reasonable grasp of astronomy and must be able to plot the position of the target planet in relation to the surrounding stars with some degree of accuracy.

Of the Mixtions of naturall things one with another and their benefits

Other is obtained by a certain, and artificiall mixtion of things mixt amongst themselves, and of the mixtions of them according to certain proportions, such as agree with the heaven under a certain Constellation And this vertue descends by a certain likeness, and aptness that is in things amongst themselves towards their superiours, and just as much as the following do by degrees correspond with them that go before, where the patient is fitly applyed to its agent. So from a certain composition of Hearbs herbs , vapours, and such like, made according to naturall Philosophy, and Astronomy, there results a certain common form, endowed with many gifts of the Stars as in the honey of Bees, that which is gathered out of the juice of innumerable Flowers, and brought into one form, contains the vertue of all, by a kind of divine, and admirable art of the Bees. Yet this is not to be less wondred at which Eudoxus Giudius reports of an artificiall kind of honey, which a certain Nation of Gyants...

Chapter xxxviii How we may draw not only Celestiall and vitall but also certain Intellectuall and divine gifts from

Magicians teach that Celestial gifts may through inferiors being conformable to superiors be drawn down by opportune influencies of the Heaven and so also by these Celestial gifts , the Celestial Angels, as they are servants of the Stars, may be procured, and conveyed to us. Iamblichus, Proclus, and Synesius, with the whole School of Platonists confirm, that not only Celestiall, and vitall, but also certain Intellectuall, Angelicall, and divine gifts may be received from above by some certain matters, having a naturall power of divinity (i.e.) which have a naturall correspondency with the superiors, being rightly received, and opportunely gathered together according to the rules of Naturall Philosophy, and Astronomy And Mercurius Trismegistus writes, that an Image rightly made of certain proper things, appropriated to any one certain Angel, will presently be animated by that Angel. Of the same also Austin St. Augustine makes mention in his eighth book De Civitate Dei the City of God ....

The Borderland Of Science

Nebula An intelligent survey of our present knowledge and theories concerning nebula1 seems to have been given lately to an American astronomical soc lety by a Mr. Vincent Francis, and I find it reprinted in Popular Astronomy. The paper is illustrated by a fine photograph of the spiral nebula in Coma Berenices, which happens to show very clearly a condition of nebular growth that I have insisted upon before now, and which is entirely supported by the writer I am quoting. You can see in the photograph how the central sun is condensing first before the spirals break up into planets. The contrary view was the defect of the grand original Laplace discovery. Laplace conceived the nebula to condense gradually from the outside rings being formed, the outermost first, the central sun being left to the last. By degrees it was perceived that this would be a very un-naturelike process. It was putting the cart before the horse, or the child before the parent. Mr....

The Theosophical Society

And it is needless to say that many of the newspapers made great capital out of the whole situation ridiculing Madame Blavatsky's dupes, and twisting every bit of information that came out about her phenomena into the most ludicrous shape it could be made to assume. Mockery of that sort was naturally expected by English friends who avowed their belief in the reality of Madame Blavatsky's powers, and probably never gave one of them a moment's serious annoyance. But for the oversensitive and excitable person chiefly concerned they were indescribably tormenting, and eventually it grew doubtful whether her patience would stand the strain put upon it whether she would not relinquish altogether the ungrateful task of inducing the world at large to accept the good gifts ,which she had devoted her life to offering them. Happily, so far, no catastrophe has ensued but no history of Columbus in chains for discovering a new world, or Galileo in prison for announcing the true principles of...

Chap lv Of the soul of the World and of the Celestials according to the traditions of the Poets and Philosophers

It is necessity that the heaven and Celestial bodies, seeing they have a power, influence, and manifest operation upon these inferiors, should be animated seeing an operition cannot proceed from a meer body. All famous Poets, and Philosophers affirm therefore that the world and all Celestiall bodies must have a soul, and that also intelligent Hence Marcus Mavillius in his Astronomy to Augustus, sings,

Psychic Influence Personality

A powerful, sweet voice, knowledge of music, knowledge of astrology, astronomy, palmistry, art, etc., add to the personality of man. One should know how to behave and adjust himself with other people. You must talk sweetly and gently. This produces a tremendous impression. You must be polite, civil, courteous. You must treat others with respect and consideration. He who gives respect to others gets respect. Humility brings respect by itself. Humility is a virtue that subdues the hearts of others. A man of humility is a powerful magnet or loadstone.

Magical Symbolism

We have touched upon a wide range of different fields of knowledge and of experience, all of which can be of value to the magician and some of which are essential mysticism, philosophy, psychology, ethnology, anatomy and physiology, the visual arts, literature and music, mathematics and languages, history, botany, geology, astronomy, physics and chemistry, and the practical development and training of the physical, mental and spiritual faculties. The practical work is of chief importance, but some of the theoretical knowledge follows close after. Nevertheless, such a list as the foregoing can be daunting to the newcomer. It is not the accumulation of facts which presents any problem the human mind naturally assimilates facts upon any subject which arouses sufficient interest. The problem is how to classify and arrange the facts so that they shall be most readily accessible, with most immediate utility, when they are required. Besides this, we need a form of classification for use...

The Druid University At Glastonbury

Understanding that escuele is the blood of life (or the wise soul of Sa Ba) explains why it was taken to Glastonbury Tor. Today Glastonbury Tor is a popular tourist attraction. In Jesus' time it was counted along with Salisbury (near Stonehenge), Bristol, Bath and Dorchester as principle Druid centers of learning. They contained as many as 60,000 students who represented the nobility of the country. It required over 20 years to complete the rigorous academic curriculum of Druidic knowledge, which included philosophy, astronomy, arithmetic, geometry, jurisprudence, medicine, poetry and oratory.11

The Left Handed Path

Aeons, according to the genuine sinister tradition, represent real - as opposed to mythical - magickal energies. Hence the absence, in the list above, of the fanciful pre-histories normally associated with so-called 'esoteric' histories. Aeons, quite simply, represent significant upward and evolutionary trends in our consciousness. Thus, for example (and according to tradition) the Hyperborian Aeon corresponds to the invention of the wheel, the discovery of the basics of astronomy and the beginnings of what we know as 'internal magick'.

Tribute To Carl G Jung

Eastern psychology can be judged in terms of the use of available evidence. The scholars and observers of China, Tibet, and India went as far as their data allowed them. They lacked the findings of modern science and so their metaphors seem vague and poetic. Yet this does not negate their value. Indeed, eastern philosophic theories dating back four thousand years adapt readily to the most recent discoveries of nuclear physics, biochemistry, genetics, and astronomy.

Chapter Sixteen The Twenty Two Paths

Through Path 28, the nature of everything in the orb of the sun is completed and perfected, which refers to both basic astronomy and the fact that the orb of the sun symbolises the Sephiroth about Tiphareth, to which the Sun is attributed. Netzach represents the instincts and processes of nature, and Yesod represents the foundation, or compilation stage of an activity or creative process. Thus this Path is where life takes on levels of meaning and is woven into a whole. The Star card shows this as the pouring forth of water, as does the Zodiacal sign of Aquarius which is also attributed to this Path and Card. On the other side of the Tree, Path 30 is where Astrologers derive the speculations and perfection of their science according to the movement of stars. This Path is thus related to the science (Hod) regarding the hidden substructure (Yesod) of the World (Malkuth), and aims to comprehend the processes running through Path 28. The Tarot card relating to the Path is that of the Sun,...

The Planets The Seven Spirits Before The Throne

The modern astronomer divorces the spiritual aspect of the celestial science, Astrology, which he pooh-poohs an an exploded superstition, from the material phase, Astronomy, counting eight primary planets plus Pluto in our solar system--Neptune, Uranus, Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Earth, Venus, Mercury. He shows through the telescope Mr. Pierre Bezian, a French mechanician, has constructed an apparatus demonstrating this third movement. He is said to have received his idea from a study of the teachings promulgated among various ancient people by priests possessed of mystic learning, particularly from the Egyptians. He shows how such a third movement will account for the tropical flora and fauna found in the frozen North, which can be accounted for in no other way. He also shows that when in the course of this third movement in the inclination of a planet's axis becomes greater than 90 degrees and its North Pole commences to point toward the south, the satellites of that planet will seem to...

Giordano Bruno 15481600

This Italian philosopher, astronomer, mathematician, and occultist was ahead of his time. His theories anticipated modern science. The most notable of these were his theories of the infinite universe and the multiplicity of worlds, in which he rejected the traditional geocentric (Earth-centered) astronomy and intuitively went beyond the Copernican heliocentric (Sun-centered) theory, which still maintained a finite universe with a sphere of fixed stars. Bruno is, perhaps, chiefly remembered for the tragic death he suffered at the stake. A victim of his own beliefs, he maintained his unorthodox ideas when both the Roman Catholic and the Reformed churches were reaffirming rigid Aristotelian and Scholastic principles.

Horary Astrology [continued

Horary Astrology may also be used to select a favorable time for commencing an important undertaking, for the starting point of an enterprise is its birth, and the influences then governing will be powerful determinators of success or failure. It is said that the Royal Astronomer who laid the corner-stone for the Observatory at Greenwich used this method, and that has certainly been a very useful and successful institution.

Preface by M Nostradamus to His Prophecies

Greetings and happiness to Cesar Nostradamus my son. Your late arrival, Cesar Nostredame, my son, has made me spend much time in constant nightly reflection so that I could communicate with you by letter and leave you this reminder, after my death, for the benefit of all men, of which the divine spirit has vouchsafed me to know by means of astronomy. And since it was the Almighty's will that you were not born here in this region and I do not want to talk of years to come but of the months during which you will struggle to grasp and understand the work I shall be compelled to leave you after my death assuming that it will not be possible for me to leave you such writing as may be destroyed through the injustice of the age. The key to the hidden prediction which you will inherit will be locked inside my heart. Reason is only too evident. Everything is predicted by divine afflatus and thanks to an angelic spirit inspiring the one prophesying, consecrating his predictions through divine...

Preliminary Invocation

Now, however, let us consider the esoteric idea-mongers of Christianity, Swedenborg, Anna Kingsford, Deussen and the like, of whom I have taken Caird as my example. I wish to unmask these people I perfectly agree with nearly everything they say, but their claim to be Christians is utterly confusing, and lends a lustre to Christianity which is quite foreign. Deussen, for example, coolly discards nearly all the Old Testament, and, picking a few New Testament passages, often out of their context, claims his system as Christianity. Luther discards James. Kingsford calls Paul the Arch Heretic. My friend the Christian Clergyman accepted Mark and Acts -- until pushed. Yet Deussen is honest enough to admit that Vedanta teaching is identical, but clearer and he quite clearly and sensibly defines Faith -- surely the most essential quality for the adherent to Christian dogma -- as being convinced on insufficient evidence. Similarly the dying-to-live idea of Hegel (and Schopenhauer) claimed by...

Astrolabe

No astronomer's kit is complete without this mechanical tabulator vital for solving stellar calculations. Planispheric astrolabes (so-called because they provide a flat, or plane, view of the heavenly spheres) enable stargazers to calculate the position of the sun and other major nearby stars with respect to both the horizon and the meridian (the imaginary north-south line connecting the geographical poles). The typical planispheric astrolabe measures 3 to 18 inches and is made of brass or iron. It consists of several principal parts the mater, a base plate with a network of lines representing celestial coordinates the rete, an open-pattern disk (with a map of the stars, including orbital circles, that rotated on the mater around a center pin corresponding to the north celestial pole and the alidade, a straight rule used for sighting objects in the sky. Most astrolabes also have one or more climates, which are rotating plates engraved with coordinate lines for different latitudes...

Background

When I entered grade school, I made my first important discovery The school library. Most of the kids would run to the fiction section to grab the story books. I would run to the shelf marked SCIENCE and I'd read text books. I would read any book as long as it was scientific dinosaurs, biology, lasers, botany, archaeology, astronomy and anything else that crossed my curious mind in a particular week. Even before I could read I would learn by looking at the pictures.

Planetary System

The Sigillum Dei Aemeth and the various heptarchial elaborations form an extremely complex system of planetary and sevenfold magikal structures. This is the earliest received portion of the entire system. It is related not only to the science of alchemy and the traditional seven-fold systems of Hermetic Science but to the various complexes of sevens that permeate biblical symbolism, from the seven days of creation in Genesis to the multiplex seven-fold combinations of Revelation. The mythos of these paradigms is combined with its own unique imagery and Britannical historiography4 to explicate its often nearly impenetrable mysteries. Each of its parts has its own talismanic geometry and cryptographic liturgy. These discrete artifacts delineate each part but as above they are interrelated within themselves, with other parts of this subsystem and not only to the other meta-systems of Enochian magick but to identifiable structures without it, including works published by Dee in his own...

Questions

Pope Gregory, therefore, under the advice of the distinguished astronomer Clavius, ordered that the calendar should be corrected by dropping ten days, so that the day following October 4, 1582, should be called the fifteenth instead of the fifth and further, to prevent any future displacement of the equinox, he decreed that thereafter only such century years should be leap years as are divisible by 400. Present differences of the two calendars is thirteen, and will remain so until the year 2100. May 12, 1886, according to the Julian calendar would be May 25, 1886, according to the Gregorian calendar. Source Manual of Astronomy. Young.

Who Is A Guru

Now open your eyes and watch carefully what is going on in this world in all walks of life. Even a cook needs a teacher. He serves under a senior cook for some years. He obeys him implicitly. He pleases his teacher in all possible ways. He learns all the techniques in cooking. He gets knowledge through the grace of his senior cook, his teacher. A junior lawyer wants the help and guidance of a senior advocate. Students of mathematics and medicine need the help and guidance of a Professor. A student of Science, music and astronomy wants the guidance of a scientist and musician and an astronomer. When such is the case with ordinary, secular knowledge, then, what to speak of the inner spiritual path, wherein the student has to walk alone with closed eyes When you are in a thick jungle, you come across several cross foot-paths. You are in a dilemma. You do not know the directions and by which path you should go. You are bewildered. You want a guide here to direct you in the right path. It...

The Formula Of Alim

He is that nothing whose consciousness is in one sense the universe considered as a single phenomenon in time and space, and in another sense is the negation of that consciousness. The body and mind of the man are only important (if at all) as the telescope of the astronomer to him. If the telescope were destroyed it would make no appreciable difference to the Universe which that telescope reveals.

Mazdeism

The Parthian dynasty of the Arsacides, who reigned from 256 B. C. until 226 A. D., marks a fatal period for Mazdeism. It was only on the accession of Ardeschir Babejan, the founder of the Sassanide dynasty, that Mazdeism regained its strength. With Ardeshir, Maz-deism became the state religion and Shapour II caused all the Avesta texts treating of philosophy, medicine, cosmogony and astronomy to be collected.

Epistle To Henry Ii

By this discourse, Sire, I present these predictions almost with confusion, especially as to when they will take place. Furthermore, the chronology of time which follows conforms very little, if at all, with that which has already been set forth. Yet it was determined by astronomy and other sources, including Holy Scriptures, and thus could not err. If I had wanted to date each quatrain, I could have done so. But this would not have been agreeable to all, least of all to those interpreting them, and was not to be done until Your Majesty granted me full power to do so, lest calumniators be furnished with an opportunity to injure me.

Tropic

'Tropikos' is a Greek word which has a meaning relative to turning, and the tropics of Astronomy are the turning points of the Sun. At the summer solstice the Sun reaches its highest degree of Northern Declination in the sign Cancer this then is its tropic, for from that point it begins to turn downwards to its Western node, and goes into Southern Declination. It reaches the lowest point of that arc in December at the winter Solstice in the sign Capricorn. This is the other tropic, for there again it turns and commences its next ascent towards the Northern heavens.

Oannes Dagon

Temple's The Sirius Mystery, in reference to the Dogon people of Mali, who have a complex system of theology and astronomy, revolving around Sirius. More sophisticated than anyone else, since their diagrams, stories, legends, lore, and rituals included elements that weren't discovered until the late 20th Century CE, when radio telescopy was able to make observations of Sirius. Sirius plays an important part in our ancient

Conclusion

The student would do well to acquire either Geoffrey James' Enochian Magick of John Dee and or Robert Turner's Elizabethan Magic and Heptarchia Mystica as a textbook of the system. Many of the axioms for understanding the logic of Enochian magick are derived from the works of John Dee14 and the Spirit Actions themselves15 , so the student is advised to begin collecting this material, as they are able. Beyond that, the serious practitioner of the Enochian system will want to scrutinize many of the other contributions, but these will be dealt with in turn in the following overview. In order to fully appreciate and operate the intricacies of Enochian magick, a basic understanding of Euclidean geometry, astronomy, astrology, logic, grammar and the renaissance magikal point of view is vital. The student is encouraged to acquire a straight edge, compass and the books of Euclid16 and begin the process of construction indicated therein. Beyond that, some indications are given in the notes...

Third Lecture

The former stages are easy to assimilate intellectually one assents to them immediately that one discovers them, but with regard to the 'tendency', this is not the case, at least it was not so for my own part. It took me a long while before I understood what was meant by 'tendency'. To help you to realize this I should like to find a good illustration. For instance, a clock does nothing at all but offer indications of the time. It is so constructed that this is all we can know about it. We can argue about whether the time is correct, and that means nothing at all, unless, for example, we know whether the clock is controlled electrically from an astronomical station where the astronomer happens to be sane, and in what part of the world the clock is, and so on.

Book Ii

The Doctrines of Mathematicks are so necessary to, and have such an affinity with Magick, that they that do profess it without them, are quite out of the way, and labour in vain, and shall in no wise obtain their desired effect. For whatsoever things are, and are done in these inferior naturall vertues, are all done, and governed by number, weight, measure, harmony, motion, and light. And all things which we see in these inferiours, have root, and foundation in them yet nevertheless without naturall vertues, of Mathematicall Doctrines only works like to naturals can be produced, as Plato saith, a thing not paataking of truth or divinity, but certain Images kin to them, as bodies going, or speaking, which yet want the Animall faculty, such as were those which amongst the Ancients were called Dedalus his Images, and automata, of which Aristotle makes mention, viz. the threefooted Images of Vulcan, and Dedalus, moving themselves, which Homer saith came out of their own accord to...

From Within Outwards

These procedures were artfully and intentionally disguised using figurative terminology so as to be transparent to all but the initiated. Throughout this book I am working from the premise that the most significant mythological tales originally had a foundation in astronomy, physiology, psychology or history.
