As humans, we’ve always looked up to the stars, to the planets, and wondered what they are, what they mean, and how they affect us.
Well, wherever you are in the world, you have the opportunity to look up into the sky, and in the night sky, we can look at the stars.
But there are many ways to interpret their meaning, and lots of new technology and old techniques that we can use to see just what impact they have on us, and our lives today.
With modern technology all around us, we often forget about the cycles of
nature and the cosmos that our ancestors always relied on. But our health, knowledge, culture, and future are still impacted by our connection to the sun, moon, planets, and beyond.
