This website provides Astrological information to the
Practical Laboratory Alchemist
for choosing the best time
to begin the Work.
Astrology of this type also aids the Alchemist
on the path of self discovery.
Tim Wilkerson studied practical laboratory alchemy at Paracelsus College in the 1984. Part of the curriculum included instruction in astrology for determining the best date and time, to begin each specific laboratory procedure. After 30 years of experimenting with this ancient compilation of knowledge, he has determined how astrology, when properly applied, calculates accurate results.
"What I've seen in my laboratory has proven to me beyond any doubt, that the theories of astrology are generally founded in an observable truth. Through experimentation I have found which facets of astrology constantly predict the available cosmic influences."
With the relatively recent launches of several new orbiting and transient satellites, telescopes, and probes, scientists are finding out just how much about space they didn't accurately know. Discoveries like the influence of Dark Matter, Cold Plasma, and alien particles entering our solar system from unknown origins within the great expanse of the universe, are changing our concept of an isolated existence on Earth. What was once commonly taught to be the "vacuum of space" is no longer true in the minds of contemporary working scientists.
"I believe that, as science continues to explore cosmic influences, advances in nuclear physics, geophysics, microbiology, and healthcare, will gain momentum. The ancient alchemists lead us to the science of chemistry, and I have found evidence that there's much more they can impart to us. We may even be able to re-discover the Philosopher's Stone."
In a pottery store, when clay slip is poured into identical molds, it is known what figurines will be produced. They can be painted with identical glaze, by the same artist, but only after they are fired in the kiln can we see their colors. We don't know what will happen to them when they are placed on the shelf for all to see, that is the choice of the future owners.
The Universe is the pottery store. We are the figurines. The glaze, and the artist, are the cosmic influences. It is in the kiln of our experiences, and choices, that show our colors. We choose our destiny, and we own ourselves.
