Emerald Table’ of Hermes Trismegistus

That which is above is as that which is below
And that which is below is as that which is above.                                                                    For performing the miracle of the One Thing.

This much quoted phrase from the ancient ‘Emerald Table’ of Hermes Trismegistus, captures the astrological worldview. It doesn’t mean that astrology is about making divisions like “good signs/bad signs”. On the contrary, astrology is about integration and understanding. Those large cosmic beings above – the planets, and the small cosmic beings below – humans, are all part of ‘the One Thing’. Astrology helps us understand the threads of inter-connection.

The Emerald Table goes on to outline the path of progress, for “performing the miracle” of consciously integrating the spiritual and physical dimensions of life. This famous document is at once an astrological template and a guide for personal transformation. Progress could be defined as refining your astrological substance. Understanding what you have to work with, is a good beginning.
