What is Vibrational Astrology (VA)?

Vibrational astrology (VA) is a system of astrological interpretation that emphasizes the importance of planetary configurations. Planetary configurations like the grand trine (three planets trine to each other) and the t-square (two planets opposition to each other and square a third planet) are very important. In Vibrational Astrology we can think of the grand trine a "3-beat", "3-frequency", "3-vibration" or "3rd harmonic" because the planets divide the circle into 3 pieces. Similarly a t-square is a 4-vibration planetary configuration. The huge step in Vibrational Astrology is recognizing that planets can be in a 5-vibration, 6-vibration, 7-vibration, or other vibrations. These other vibrations are just as important and powerful as the 3-vibration and 4-vibration planetary patterns that most astrologers are familiar with.

What are the practical benefits of VA? Once you dive into the language of VA there is no turning back for you find that VA is a door to an astrology of the future. With VA we can see the fundamental issues in a person’s life that are not as clearly indicated when we do not see the full symphony of cosmic vibrations that are being expressed through a person.

A trained VA professional astrologer can easily help find the root cause of an issue in a person’s life and help the client solve such issue.

Where does VA come from? Vibrational Astrology was founded and developed by David Cochrane. To understand what VA is, it helps to first look at the historical foundations. VA was inspired by the idea of Music of the Spheres. Since ancient times people have been inspired that the movements of planets create vibrations or sounds that our ears cannot hear but that we respond to. Even Claudius Ptolemy who wrote the classic book now known as the Tetrabiblos, often regarded as the single most important astrology book of all time, speculated on how planetary motions might create a Music of the Spheres.

The great astronomer Johannes Kepler worked intensively to understand the Music of the Spheres and he began looking at aspects between planets as musical intervals and he experimented with what we now call minor aspects. John Addey, a British astrologer, developed a system of astrological interpretation built upon the ideas of Kepler and others. Addey called his system of astrological interpretation harmonic astrology. David Cochrane developed harmonic astrology to a new level which is now known as Vibrational Astrology.

How does this idea of a Music of the Spheres operate in the astrology chart? One of the key concepts of Vibrational Astrology is that we live in a complex world of vibrations. Every color we see is a vibration! Every sound we hear is a vibration! The different notes of the musical scale are different frequencies. The different colors we see are different frequencies. We live in a complex tapestry of vibrations. According to Super String Theory everything is ultimately vibration. In many mystical and religious traditions there is also an emphasis on the fundamental nature of vibration.

In astrology vibration is also fundamental. Every aspect between planets is a vibration. A trine aspect (120 degrees) makes a 3-vibration, like a waltz. A square aspect (90 degrees) is a 4-vibration and is a basic driving rhythm of life. The exciting breakthrough in Vibrational Astrology is that we have discovered how the intricate tapestry of cosmic vibrations affects us. These findings are confirmed in research studies and the results of applying these ideas in your consultations and chart readings are stunning! Using the breakthrough discoveries in Vibrational Astrology we can pinpoint what a person’s talents are in a way that is not possible using only zodiac signs, houses, and standard aspects between planets. The rules for chart interpretation are simple but the precision and accuracy of the interpretations are amazing.

The key thing to know to appreciate Vibrational Astrology is simply that there are more aspects than the conjunction, opposition, square, trine and sextile. There are quintiles (1/5 and 2/5 of a circle) and septiles (1/7, 2/7, and 3/7) and these aspects are not minor. Once we understand how to analyze and interpret these aspects we find that we can describe a person and understand a person at a level of detail that was not possible before. There is a beautiful and intricate tapestry of aspects between planets that describe the melody of our lives and the way we live.

If you are unfamiliar with Vibrational Astrology, we strongly recommend that you attend the Vibratiol Astrology Preconference on Friday morning and afternoon. The Preconference will provide you everything you need to know about Vibrational Astrology.
