The Astral Anomaly; School of the Stars
“Through God’s decree, phenomenal events are created. By His will day falls into night, and the heaven’s shimmer amid an abyss of darkness. God created all beings, assigning them to their allowances. Through the stars one might find the thesis of life, if he knows where to look.”
-Duarte I de Antunyes, Meridian progenitor and Sibyl
Through the study of stars the mind allows one to reflect upon life, whether it be their own, or one they hold dear to them. Through an outside perception astrology is viewed as a science, but at its core it is much more. The celestial sphere is a physical ball perfectly circular, and so is everything contained therein at all times and in all states.
For those who wish to gain the knowledge of the philosophers and to understand and ponder their secrets, know that you must first diligently search their books, in which the great wonders of their art can be found, and seek to discover the wonderful science of the astral plane. Through expeditionary means there are so many new discoveries to be made. Data has been lost for centuries, with hardly any astrological findings being made public for many reasons, most centered around greed and nepotism. First of all, you must understand that this science has been studied and kept secret by philosophers for centuries, and they have not wished to disclose it to humanity. They prefer it clandestine, and whatever had been shared to the masses was phrased in secret words, and through arbitrary signs and similitudes, as though they spoke of other sciences. And they did this on account of their honesty and goodness, because if this science were revealed to all humanity, the universe would be thrown into confusion. And it was for this reason that they spoke of it figuratively, that no one would be able to obtain it unless this science was first revealed to them.
This precedent is innately wrong, and subjects the common man to a life of mystery, with no hope of attaining the knowledge of the beyond. The school’s purpose is to put an end to this intrigue, and allow everyone to search into the skies to find answers of their own.
Through intense reflection questions beyond are decipherable. With the application of science philosophers of the School of the Stars have begun to map out such mysteries. Maritime expeditions, and the charting of unknown sea routes enable Meridian astrologists to get ever closer to these questions of import. Astrology in essence is divided into specific angles and anomalies. With the risk perpetuated culturally from the study of astrology the art has been sorely lost on many. The goal of the school is to learn all we can of these anomalies, so that it may enlighten us and future generations of the world. Clandestine policy on wonders so fruitful is abhorrent and a major deterrent to scientific advancement.
The method for observing celestial bodies involves perilous sea expeditions to locations optimal for astral viewing. On these missions many constellations will be charted. All of the information gathered will be assorted by actuaries and scientists of the school, so that it may be spread to the masses. There are a plethora of roles available for aspiring members, ranging from matelot positions, to esteemed philosophers and scientists. In order to apply for the school you must sign up at the headquarters in Helena, Oren. In order to schedule an interview please fill out the form below:
We at the school hope to see you on our next expedition!
