What is the True Purpose of Astrology?

"Before all else, it is necessary to comprehend that one is asleep; it is only when someone fully realizes that he is asleep that he really enters the path of awakening. Whosoever manages to awaken then becomes self-cognizant; he acquires cognizance of himself. The most serious error of many ignorant pseudo-esotericists and pseudo-occultists is that they boast of being self-cognizant. Moreover, they believe that everyone is awake, that all people possess self-cognizance. If we want to arrive at the awakening of consciousness, at self-cognizance, we have to work with the consciousness here and now. It is precisely here in this physical world where we must work to awaken the consciousness. Whosoever awakens here awakens everywhere, in all the dimensions of the universe. The human organism is a living zodiac, and in each of its twelve constellations, the consciousness sleeps profoundly. It is urgent to awaken consciousness in each of the twelve parts of the human organism; that is the purpose of these zodiacal exercises." —Samael Aun Weor, Practical Astrology
