An overview of magic and divination all over the world
Astrology is a technique used by astrologers to predict all kinds of things in the world by observing celestial bodies, the positions of the sun, moon and stars and their various changes.
Astrology is also a relatively closed system, which mainly adopts the planets in the solar system. This kind of prediction is based on the planets with most and obvious influence, so it is quite desirable in the general direction. However, in our individual lives, there are too many changes, that is, it is not advisable when it comes to details, which can be used as a good way to guide the overall direction of people's life and work.
But the details still need to be changed or created through individual efforts, but also reflect a good personal initiative, so that the world is more or less the same.
Astrology holds that celestial bodies, especially planets and constellations, predict the changes of all things in the world in some causal or non-accidental way.
The theoretical basis of astrology exists in ancient Greek philosophy from 300 BC to 300 AD, which combines astrology with the "omens" of ancient Mesopotamian celestial bodies. Astrologers believe that the motion changes and combinations of some celestial bodies are specifically related to the occurrence and extinction of the four elements of fire, air, water and earth on earth.
The complexity of this connection reflects the complexity of the ever-changing human world.
This ever-changing human world cannot be mastered by the world, so it is easy to find excuses for any mistakes made by astrologers.
Astrology has different views on the role of God.
Some people think that the universe is completely mechanized, and they reject both the intervention of God and the free will of man.
Others believe that astrology is not a science as precise as astronomy, it can only indicate the trend of the development of things, and this trend can be influenced by the will of man or God.
Others believe that the planets themselves are powerful gods whose will can be changed by prayer, and that the stars show God's will only to those who are well versed in astrology.
The latter view is very close to the thinking of the ancient Mesopotamians, who mainly predicted to the court the coming blessings and misfortunes, which may affect the growth of human beings, animals and plants in the form of weather or disease. or in some form to affect state affairs or the lives of members of the royal family, and so on.
But they believe that the omens of celestial bodies do not determine the future of things, but only as a sign to show people the will of God.
The original purpose of astrology was to predict the fate of people's lives based on the position of the planets and the zodiac when they were born.
Later, it developed into several branches, one specializing in the study of the relationship between major celestial phenomena (such as solar eclipses or the appearance of the vernal equinox) and human beings, called total astrology; one kind of auspicious moment of choice of action, called timing astrology; the other is called doubt astrology, which answers the diviner's question according to his celestial phenomena.
Astrology originated from the celestial omens of the ancient Mesopotamians.
The first book on celestial omens appeared in the ancient Babylonian dynasty from the 18th century BC to the 16th century BC.
Between the 6th and 4th centuries BC, the theory of celestial omens was introduced into Egypt, Greece, the near East, and India.
It was later spread to Central Asia by Indian monks.
Since the 3rd century BC, some people have mathematized the concepts corresponding to large and small universes.
The so-called "small universe" refers to the human body.
They also subdivide the zodiac further, believing that the five stars have their own primary and secondary roles in different arcs of the zodiac.
The influence of a star on people depends on the arc it is in and its relationship with the arcs of other enemies and friends.
The zodiac corresponds to specific parts of the human body, and the ever-changing material world and human character are more or less related to the zodiac.
Astrologers calculate the influence of the planets according to the five-star coordinates of the sun and the moon and the position of the zodiac at a given time, as well as the complex geometric relationship between them, and then use the astrological chart to find out the corresponding relationship between the above-mentioned factors and the events on the ground. get the results of astrology.
This result is sometimes contradictory, which requires the astrologer to interpret it according to the situation of the astrologer and the experience of the astrologer himself.
By the first century AD, the above methods had been finalized.
Greek astrology has also been introduced into India, Iran and Islamic culture.
After the 17th century, with the establishment of heliocentric theory and the rise of modern science, astrology lost its scientific support.
However, astrology has begun to rise again in recent years, and some people have tried to introduce recently discovered exoplanets into astrology and to find out the statistical relationship between planetary positions and human life.
The tarot card comes from the transliteration of the word "TAROT" and is called "the secret library of nature".
It is an ancient tool of divination. It has been popular in Europe since the Middle Ages and its status is equivalent to China's Book of changes. Its origin has always been a mystery.
Tarot has a total of 78 cards, including 22 big Alcana cards and 56 small Alcana cards, which can be used respectively for divination or 78 mixed cards for divination.
It is worth mentioning that tarot cards do not refer to fixed cards. In fact, there are many kinds of tarot cards, at least thousands of them, but most of them are based on the three major tarot systems in the world.
Tarot cards are made up of 22 big Akana cards and 56 small Akana cards.

The definition is accurate, direct and widely recognized by the Tarot community.

Especially when we don't know what kind of action should be taken, it is a very good signpost and has a certain function of psychological cue. because it is too mysterious, it belongs to the category of occult.
Some scholars use tarot card divination as psychological counseling, but generally only use tarot's analytical function.
The Science of Spirit and Mathematics.
Although most books of spiritual mathematics often call Pythagoras their ancestors, there is a big gap between the method of spiritual divination and Pythagorean digital mystics. it's just that Pythagoras's theory of digital mysticism is still used in the symbolic sense of some numbers, so we should regard Pythagoras's digital occult as one of the sources of modern spiritual mathematics.
It is not that Pythagoras created the present spirituality.
In fact, most of the divination methods of spiritual numbers come from the Kabala school of Jewish esotericism.
In the Kabala school, the method of mapping everything to numbers, especially letters to numbers, so that everything that can be named can correspond to the attributes of numbers, for example, the number of Christ and Savior is 888, and the number of antichrist and demon is 666.
This method of exchanging names with numbers has also become the origin of names in modern spiritual mathematics.
According to the tradition of Kabala, everything that can be named has the nature of numbers, and the pronunciation and each word have different characteristics, so there are three names in modern spiritual mathematics.
The first is the soul number, which is the addition of the vowel numbers in the name; the second is the individual spirit number, which is the addition of the consonants and big numbers in the name to represent the external performance of the person; the third is the destiny number, which is the addition of all the alphanumeric numbers. It represents that the overall performance is also related to the individual's occupation.
In calculating the number of names, when there are two digits in a number, ten digits and individual digits should be added until they become a number, and the numbers of last name and first name should be added first, and then the two numbers should be added together.
Decapitation in Southeast Asia.
Beheading in Southeast Asia is a kind of witchcraft spread in Southeast Asia.
According to legend, after the demagogic art of Miao Xinjiang in Sichuan and Yunnan of China spread to Southeast Asia, it evolved from the combination of local witchcraft.
It can not only save people from life and death, but also harm people from invisible Nanyang witchcraft-beheading.
It is also said that Thailand's "beheading art" and Xiangxi's "demagogic art" are called the two great witchcraft in Southeast Asia.
From the point of view of the steps, the so-called head-lowering technique lies in "lowering" and "head".
"descending" refers to the magic or drug tricks used to cast the spell; "head" refers to the individual being cast and contains the "individual contact grasp" of the individual being cast (such as the birth of the person being cast, the five elements of numerology, name, location, commonly used items, body parts, such as hair, nails, etc.).
The essence of beheading is to use specially made beetles or demagogic drugs as an introduction to inadvertently produce special medicine or toxicity to the human body to achieve the purpose of harming or controlling a person, or to use the power of the spirit world, such as ghosts, to construct information on the eight-character names and related items of the individual enchanted, and then "simulate the individual", and finally achieve the purpose of subduing or killing the enchanted person.
According to folklore, the art of lowering the head of Nanyang came from Hinduism. when the Sanzang Master of the Tang Dynasty went to worship the Buddha in Tianzhu, India, and when he returned home, he passed the Tongtian River in Annan, that is, the upper reaches of the Mei River in Siam, refined the ferry for the tortoise and dived to the bottom of the river, trying to kill the Tang monk. Although the Tang monk did not die, all the scriptures he asked for sank to the bottom of the river. Fortunately, the disciple went into the water and picked up, but only got back a copy of Mahayana.
Another part of the Hinayana's "Yi" was flowed into Siam by water and offered to the Siamese monks. I heard that this "Yi" is now the art of beheading.
Another point of view is that the original book "Yi" flowed into the hands of Taoist monks in Yunnan and created a school of "Maoshan Road." as a result, Maoshan's magic and beheading came from this, and the means are relatively powerful, so some people say that Siam's beheading came from Yunnan, China.
It is also said that the technique of lowering the head of Siam is a fake or hand-copied copy of the book, which lacks a lot of orthodox skills, so the time is weaker than that of Maoshan.
According to ancient Chinese books, "Maoshan" is the name of a mountain southeast of Jurong County in Jiangsu Province, China. Maoying of the Han Dynasty and his two younger brothers, Maoli, lived in this mountain. The world called him "Sanmaojun" and called it "Maoshan". Maoshan art was created by Sanmaojun, also known as "jade girl happy god art".
Others say that Maoshan Shu is another school of Taoism other than Zhang Tianshi's "Wu Lei Zheng Dharma", that is, a kind of "Southern Law".
The techniques of "Yuanguang" and "Zhu Youke" are all the techniques of Maoshan.
