  Aberree on Astrologee

Previous item on reanimating real astrology reminded me that Alphia Hart had written or featured some articles on the theme.

A few years ago I spent considerable time on Alphia Hart, the Enid-based universal dissident**. Hart published the Aberree from 1954 to 1965, initially as a gathering point for anti-Hubbard types, later expanding into other areas of unconventional thinking. Hart tried to favor genuinely unconventional views derived from objective or subjective Nature, avoiding the false flags of his era. He didn't always succeed, but he did a better job than anyone else.

This remarkably sane and perceptive article was written by Burt Essex. I've cut it down some.
Astrology has been a makeshift science. It has hobbled along on less than half its required factors for centuries, and to this day carries with it the assorted crutches and props devised thru the years to shore up its shaky foundations. The foundation has been there all along but much of it undetected, and the house of astrology has meanwhile strayed off into thin air.

As practiced by the Babylonians and Egyptians, it was already thousands of years in decadence, which is the opinion of our most outstanding archeologists based on the ceiling drawings in the tombs of Seti and Senmut, and with the many years of study I have devoted to the subject, I heartily agree.

Back in the time of the Babylonians and Egyptians, and up until only 400 years ago, only five planets in the solar system were known and used in astrological computations. We now have nine sighted planets and two more are tightly computed by this writer after 25 years of patient observation.

There are 12 divisions of the zodiac, with 12 discernible patterns of human behavior. Stop and think what would happen to an equation in algebra or trigonometry if 12 factors were necessary to arrive at an accurate solution and you had only five or six, or maybe seven, factors. To be sure, you might get an answer but it most certainly would not be more than mishmash and a virtually worthless solution.

This is exactly the position astrology has been in for the last 4,000 years. Those who studied the effects of the planets that were known found there was a correlation in human affairs, but for lack of all the basic factors, namely, all the planets of the solar system, their resulting analyses could only be guesses colored by the general knowledge of the one attempting astrology without all the factors necessary to arrive at accurate analyses quickly fell into the hands of mystics and promoters of various religions. The Bible is loaded with allusions to astrological data. Down thru the centuries this decadent astrology was used as a prop for religion and has so confused people that it is now virtually impossible to separate astrology from religious or, worse, socalled 'spiritual' connotations. Another contributing factor is that religion usually tries to imbue into its adherents the trust in their particular concept of God (or gods) to guide them in everyday affairs.

Astrology, with its seven (and even now with nine) planets, has also purported to give guidance to its devotees. This places the person exposed to both in a dilemma. The Church has solved this several times by banishing astrology, with justification. The astrologer today, with nine planets, can give some guidance of value in a broad and general way. The individual seeking such guidance, however, should be reminded that the details and daily decisions must be made from inner guidance.

It is from failure that the truly great things in one's life are learned and not by asking an astrologer for a life program that would include trivialities such as when to have one's hair done. It is before the undertaking of action that is to have long-range effect, e. g. the conceiving of a child, the beginning of a corporation, the forming of a partnership, business or marital, that astrology is of great value as by this means one can look ahead at future possibilities before casting the die.
Says it all. I'd only add the other "variables" outside the visual spectrum, like magnetic and electrostatic fields.

Footnote 1: The tribute site Aberree.com is still there but hasn't been maintained in a long time, and the scans of pages have been degraded to blurry thumbnails by the storage server. Fortunately the OCR for this page in the very last 1965 issue worked pretty well.

** Footnote 2: It's worth remembering yet again that Hart had to set up his own printing press and typesetting machine to get his message out. Modern dissidents have a HUGE variety of outlets, mostly free. Spoiled moderns are bitching because SOME outlets choose not to carry their material, which is called EDITING, and bitching because SOME outlets don't want to pay the dissidents for material that won't bring in profit for the outlet, which is called NORMAL BUSINESS.
