Madame Helena Blavatsky
Rudolf Steiner brings new spiritual perspective to our study of the heavens. Humanity, he says, is intimately connected to cosmic beings, who in turn are related to planets and stars. There is meaning in the cosmos. Although Steiner rejects simplistic notion of the planets determining our lives and behaviour, he makes a clear connection between the heavenly bodies and human beings. Whilst criticizing the superficial nature of much astrology, Steiner shows that as individual, and with the guidance of spiritual beings, we choose an appropriate time of birth to match the destiny we are to live.
