Ancient Observatories

Stonehenge Ancient ObservatoryLeft to us by the ages, are remnants of proof that ancient civilizations developed, by means often unexplained, elaborate structures to observe and calculate the movement of the heavens. They were Ancient Observatories.

As early as 2,000 BCE, (some say there were appearances as early as 3,000 BCE), the ancients organized systems of Astrology and Astronomy as a means for ascertaining the will and intention of the gods.

By the 1600 BCE, a simple omen-based Astrology had become evident in the astrological writings of the time. An example of these documents was the Enuma Anu Enlil. Its extensive contents recorded events representing public, common, famine, war, etc., and the celestial observations at the time they occurred. Texts from this time also referred to an oral tradition. However, their origin and content can only be speculated upon.

During this time ancient Astrology was solely mundane, and, prior to 700 BCE, the practitioners' understanding of astronomy was quite rudimentary.

Because of their inability to accurately predict future celestial phenomena and planetary movement far in advance, interpretations were done as the phenomena occurred or slightly before. However, by 400 BCE, their expertise and mathematical methods had progressed sufficiently enough to calculate future planetary positions with reasonable accuracy and to correlate the existence of their societal cultures with the heavens.

Much of their progress can be attributed to structures they developed that we refer to as "Ancient Observatories."

"God created the stars and the heaven for more than the sake of beauty. He gave them to us for interpretation so that we may live a more productive life. Man is superior to the stars if he lives in the power of superior wisdom. Such a person, being the master over heaven and earth, by means of his will, is a Magus, and magic is not sorcery but supreme wisdom."
-- Paracelsus
