Astrology would be an excellent example of manifest synchroncity if it has at its disposal thoroughly tested findings. But at least there are some facts thoroughly tested and back up by a wealth of statistics which make the astrological problem seem worthy of philosophical investigation. (Psychology has no difficulty in recognizing this, since astrology represents the summation of all the psychological knowledge of antiquity.)
The fact that it is possible to reconstruct in adequate fashion a person’s character from the data of his nativity shows the relative validity of astrology…
In so far as there are any really correct astrological diagnoses, they are not due to the effects of the constellations but to our hypothetical time-qualities. In other words, whatever is born or done in this moment of time has the quality of this moment of time.
