Episode 8 – Lance Ferguson – Skywatch 11


For thousands of years astrologers have closely watched the starry firmament and followed the cycles of the Sun, Moon and planets as they danced across the heavens.

They noticed how the comings and goings of people and events here on Earth were described by the cycles of the planets and their connections with each other. Skywatch is a report on the astrology of the day—the energy that is on the street for everybody—all over the Earth. The pattern changes quickly. Some days are better than others. Following the Skywatch will alert you to these shifts in energy and mood in your personal and business concerns. And help you have good timing in life.

Lance Ferguson has been in the Astrology field since 1975.

Astrology consists of several pseudoscientific systems of divination[1] based on the premise that there is a relationship between astronomical phenomena and events in the human world. Many cultures have attached importance to astronomical events, and the Indians, Chinese, and Mayans developed elaborate systems for predicting terrestrial events from celestial observations. In the West, astrology most often consists of a system of horoscopes purporting to explain aspects of a person’s personality and predict future events in their life based on the positions of the sun, moon, and other celestial objects at the time of their birth. The majority of professional astrologers rely on such systems.

Throughout most of its history, astrology was considered a scholarly tradition. It was accepted in political and academic contexts, and was connected with other studies, such as astronomy, alchemy, meteorology, and medicine.At the end of the 17th century, new scientific concepts in astronomy and physics (such as heliocentrism and Newtonian mechanics) called astrology into question. Astrology thus lost its academic and theoretical standing, and common belief in astrology has largely declined.[4] Astrology has been rejected by the scientific community as a pseudoscience, having no validity or explanatory power for describing the universe. Among other issues, there is no proposed mechanism of action by which the positions and motions of stars and planets could affect people and events on Earth that does not contradict well understood basic aspects of biology and physics.[5]:249[6] Scientific testing of astrology has found no evidence to support any of the premises or purported effects outlined in astrological traditions. In one study, participating astrologers attempting to match natal charts with profiles generated by a psychological inventory produced results not significantly at variance with random chance.

Astrology has been dated to at least the 2nd millennium BCE, with roots in calendrical systems used to predict seasonal shifts and to interpret celestial cycles as signs of divine communications.[8] A form of astrology was practised in the first dynasty of Mesopotamia (1950–1651 BCE). Chinese astrology was elaborated in the Zhou dynasty (1046–256 BCE). Hellenistic astrology after 332 BCE mixed Babylonian astrology with Egyptian Decanic astrology in Alexandria, creating horoscopic astrology. Alexander the Great’s conquest of Asia allowed astrology to spread to Ancient Greece and Rome. In Rome, astrology was associated with Chaldean wisdom. After the conquest of Alexandria in the 7th century, astrology was taken up by Islamic scholars, and Hellenistic texts were translated into Arabic and Persian. In the 12th century, Arabic texts were imported to Europe and translated into Latin, helping to initiate the European Renaissance, when major astronomers including Tycho Brahe, Johannes Kepler and Galileo practised as court astrologers. Astrological references appear in literature in the works of poets such as Dante Alighieri and Geoffrey Chaucer, and of playwrights such as Christopher Marlowe and William Shakespeare.

    I’m grateful to Xavier and Lance for this interview since Lance reminded me of some of the benefits of astrology and to Xavier for sharing Lance with the world. I’ve been a fan and subscriber of his SkywatchAstrology.com website for years since his Monthly Reports and Yearly Datebook are so helpful in the way they help one to anticipate the “mood” of the period and to schedule appointments, trips, etc.
    When I say “benefits of astrology” I mean Lance’s comments about using it to learn more about one’s strengths that you can use to your advantage. When I started studying astrology years ago I may have focused too much on problematic areas in my chart without balancing it with the study of where my strengths, good attributes, and talents lie. Now, older and more self-confident, I can see that I do have these talents that I can now further develop as I might have done more when I was younger. “Times change”, as Lance says, and my new attitude and these changes are probably reflected in my progressed chart!
    Since I discovered this website through Lance’s website links, I’m now a big fan of The Human Experience Podcast. I’m listening to each, from Episode 1 forward, and finding each fascinating and well done. Xavier is a good interviewer, is easy to listen to, and his breadth of knowledge helps him interact positively with each guest. Count on me to share this website with my friends!
