In the past, the future seems to have been a very important idea and the ability to foretell it conferred immense powers on those who could make accurate predictions.\nBeginning with the prediction of the movement of large bodies and predicting eclipses in large bodies \u2013 like the sun and the moon, the science that evolved went on to make fine tuned predictions about the sunshine of our lives \u2013 the comings and goings of lovers and loved ones.\nAs the science evolved, the powers grew until there came a time when the power attracted the ignorant greedy who paid no heed to the science within. And with their ignorant dissemination of false information, the science was reduced to a quasi science. In the usual course of evolution of a subject, new generations build on the shoulders of the old\u2026.. but over centuries nothing new was added to the science \u2013 both from reverence of the old order and from lack of it. And so today it stands firmly relegated to the realm of \u2018mumbo jumbo\u2019\nBut in the past, the subject of \u2018the future\u2019 was a very important mental engagement.\nAnd as it always happens\u2026 all such engagements eventually resulted in artful works.\nFor, men and women are compelled by some force within to create beauty. For in that creation they are one with the universe. They are fuelled by Shrushti. And so art is produced. Producing no financial for the rest of the world. But immense soul value for the creator.\nAnd so we have astrological calendars.\nAmazing. Beautiful. Stunning. Gorgeous. Timeless Soul Consuming works of art.\nBorn in the quest for determining the future. Born in the past.\nPresenting here in the next few posts, a series of astrological calendars from various cultures in Asia that have arrested my attention\n\nPalindon Calendars, Bali\nPalelitangan Calendars, Bali\nJanam Patri / Kundali Birth Charts, Nepal & India\nAstrological Charts, Myanmar Mandala Spirit Cloths\nAstrological Charts, Thailand\nAstrological Calendars, Batak Borneo\nAstrological Calendar, Mongolia\nAstrological Chart, Tibet\n\nMay 2017\n\n\nSave\nSave\nSave\nSave\nSave\nThe post Foretelling the Future in the Past \u2013 Astrological Calendars appeared first on The Art Blog by WOVENSOULS.COM.
