The MC and its Ruler signify elevation in life, rank achievements, goals, superiors, authority, and the Mother. In the Uranian System, the MC carries Personal Attributes of the “I”, while the ASC is associated with “Others”. In this lecture we compare and resolve this seeming contradiction.

Astrology has never been too far from the Jews
They both have the same Birth Place: UR אוּר כַּשְׂדִים , and about the same beginning (2nd millennium BCE). It was later, in Babylonia, where they met again, as astrology was maturing into the way we know it now. The Jewish people were always involved with the cultural milieu around them. In Babylonia astrology pervaded the educated circles and the Jews were not immune to its allure. Astrology did not begin with the Jews, but of all the great Monotheistic Religions, Judaism embraced and preserved it, in ways – some visible and some occult. Yet, astrology presents profound philosophical questions and glaring religious contradictions that had to be resolved. This tension is represented dramatically in the opposed positions of Ibn Ezra & Maimonides.
