01.001 Spiritual astronomy

 

Now follows an extract from a book by A P Shepherd. The book has the title "Rudolf Steiner Scientist of the Invisible," 1954
Pages 119-120 Spiritual astronomy

Now, in regard to this ascent to higher worlds Steiner makes a revelation of great interest and importance, which it is impossible to deal with adequately in an introductory book of this sort. Nevertheless some reference must be made to it, as it keeps recurring from time to time in the descriptions which he gives of the spiritual worlds. This revelation may be called that of "Spiritual Astronomy". He reveals that man's life, physical and spiritual, is intimately related to the whole universe of stars, sun and planets. We have already pointed out that all material objects are a manifestation of spirit activity. In the same way the heavenly bodies are not mere meaningless masses moving through space, but they are the self-manifestation of spiritual beings, who radiate spiritual and moral forces within their spheres. These "spheres" are not to be identified with the luminous bodies we see in the heavens. So far as it can be spoken of spatially, the spiritual "sphere" of the planet is the field of operation of its forces, which is the whole sphere which is enclosed in the orbit which the visible planet describes in the heavens. The spiritual forces of these spheres inter-penetrate and are inter-related in manifold ways; but at certain points the influence of one sphere will pre-dominate.
