(not to be copied word for word)
Sodalitas occasus Sanctus Astrologus, Latin for Followers of the Sacred Astro, is a modern religion or philosophy group that promotes the believers with respect for all beings along with harmony and worship of the web of life. It was originally started in the 17th and 18th centuries cultural movement, the Age of Enlightenment. The following began first in Europe and spread later to the American colonies by settlers.When people are introduced to the concept of this group individuals realize that the most drawing characteristic of the set of beliefs is the degree to which it is free of dogma. Those who are a part of it lack a sacred text or any equivalent close to that of a bible.
There is no universal set of words used to distinguish their belief that everything is connected. The references widely vary though the beliefs are united, some refer to that which created the people as gia, aether, or astros though the mainstream version is in latin, typically they use Astrologus. Which words used differ from society to society, region to region. Despite this, there are a number of concepts and beliefs that most hold in common. In this way Sodalitas occasus Sanctus Astrologus accomplishes a proposal of a spiritual way of life as well as a way to avoid intolerance and sectarianism that are too common within many modern established religions.
The religion is not based on Sir Edward Burnett Tylor’s concept of animism, the belief in spirits inhabiting and animating beings. For Tylor as well as the Sodalitas, Latin for Followers, the fact that modern religious practitioners continued to believe in spirits shows signs of a lack of education, the mindset of a primitive society. Sodalitas beliefs on the other hand are based on understanding the ways of the universe and how life truly works.It is one of few not based on animism. To see the interconnection is uniting, to be educated together is the same as to unite together through a common ground. Overall, their goal is to reform society using reason through intellectual interchange.
All beliefs in the Sanctus Astrologus are based on the fact that all things are made from the astro, also known as the cosmos. As astrophysicist Carl Edward Sagan would say,“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.” With all in the end being connected, all from the beginning is sacred to them. The roots of Sanctus Astrologus are in science though some regions celebrate the interconnection of life in a druidic manner. The druidic style of celebrating seasons, popular amongst the Latin speaking followers, is done in ode to the past as well as in preference over the typical holiday style found nowadays that is filled with corporate advacation.
In this set of beliefs it is an inconceivable notion to believe in anything other than that which connects all living things is the basis of all living things.The interconnection not only lies in a physical forms composition for the people who believe in Sanctus Astrologus but in the form of energy. The shortest way to explain would be to use physicist Brian Cox's explanation of the interconnection on a quantum level "This shift of the configuration of the electrons inside the diamond has consequences, because the sum total of all the electrons of the universe must respect Pauli. Therefore, every electron around every atom in the universe must be shifting as I heat the diamond up, to make sure that none of them end up in the same energy level. When I heat this diamond up, all the electrons in the universe instantly but imperceptibly change their energy levels. So everything is connected to everything else.” In layman's terms one object being affected affects all objects around it.
Sanctus Astrologus bottom-line philosophical posture is of affection and respect towards all parts of life– fellow homosapien, beasts, and all else from the atomic to the cosmic level with an understanding of the importance of the connection of all.With the idea of being connected in the great web of life is being held by most Sodalitas that whatever effect created will ultimately create an effect in return. A word often used by believers to describe their approach is reverence, to hold respect and the feeling of sacredness. For example; when one believes in being reverent towards a fellow homosapien; they care for the body, associations, and sexuality of another with respect yet simultaneously as being something sacred.
Many Sodalitas today adopt a moral stance which is pantheistic view of life to abstain from harming others unless it is for life itself, and to focus on the idea that we all are a part of the great web or fabric of life that includes every living creature as well as all of creation as we know it.The Sodalitas say the consequence to being apart of Sanctus Astrologus is the belief they know they are not alone because they are connected within this web. It is described as bringing a trusting posture towards life psychologically and physically as well as showing benefits to society through causing less friction between minds. Sodalitas see themselves as a part of the energy that created all from the molecular level to the cognitive creatures of the modern age.To be alone to them is an illusion of separateness.
With the scientific knowledge that all is connected molecularly across the entire universe they choose to see the interconnection between all. This includes themselves and those who believe in an animism way wishing only for them to be educated to the point of finding the interconnection of all man as well as all else. Sodalitas believe religion is only a way to answer questions, a method to make comfort out of the unknown, passed down and morphed over the ages to make people feel united.Thus, they do not damn any religious words for they are only part of an attempt to explain what is or was once unknown.The Sodalitas say their religious name does not matter it had only been chosen to show that the universe is molecularly connected to all and the only value they hold in words is to the truth available through education today.
There are few Haricolari, ceremonial leaders, due to the religion being split in half. One believes in holding a yearly ceremony and the other does not. Haricolari tend to be passionate individuals that establish and convey an emotional and intellectual connection. Their mind lies between remembering the past as part of education and forwarding education. Each are concise charismatic speakers that articulate a bold and inspiring vision who are not only educated but sociable with their peers. As part of their personal devotion to the studies they take three days of silence prior to the groups only regular ritual, the transformation right.
Sodalitas in the Circulus, Latin for circle, region celebrate the spring equinox and consider it a transformation right that they refer to in Latin as Mutatio Ritus. The transformation right for these people symbolizes the start of the new year , a cleaning of the past. Some consider it to be a symbol of the chaos of creation.To perform in this ceremony members must have already undergone the induction period which is a length of time which one reflects, in private. lt is considered a personal part of the passage to begin cleansing before the ceremony. Then the Sodalitas pilgrimage to the ceremony from their populus groups; Ignis (fire), Ae (water),Terra (earth), and Aero (air). Each group haul a rocks from their populus for miles in order to take place in the Mutatio Ritus. The rocks hold multiple meanings to them simultaneously including the representation of past, present, and future. In total there are sixteen rocks ; four rocks equating to four planets which each stand for four out of the five elements; fire, water, earth, & air. The fifth element is Astrologus, known in more primitive celebrations as aether, the energy which connects all which is represented by the lives of those present in the ritual.
The populus groups light their elements candles then separate to take a moment to inscribe that which came to their awareness during the self reflection of one thing to rid and one thing to gain. Each tribe matches their grouping of stones lit by a candle holding nothing worldly besides that inscribed.The ceremonial speaker known as the Haricolari, Latin for to speak by divine inspiration, is only scheduled act of speaking is this the Mutatio Ritus. The Haricolari, which may be male or female, start the ceremony by going into the chant “May our minds work together to find mutual understanding. May I see you true and be seen in kind. May our words reveal more than they obscure. Most of all may our minds, eyes and tongues be guided by our hearts and the language far older than words.” as each group lights their element areas candles.The Sodalitas take a moment of silence. Following the time of reflection the individuals break the silence by uttering “To write is to bring one physical form and turn it to another, with that which we burn we cleanse from thought, to rid from thought is to rid of being.” then the members burn that which they wish to rid. After the leader of the ceremony closes their eyes to says “We honor what we put to rest, we open our energy to renew.” This is followed by the second burning of inscriptions written with that which they hope to gain.When the last paper is out “May the fire, the will for this in the present bring forth that at this time is only a desire.” is said by the speaker to close the formal ceremony.
Mutatio Ritus may only be performed by members who have already undergone the induction period in which one reflects in a private right of passage before the ceremony prior to the pilgrimage to the ceremony from their populus groups: (grps listed. paragraphs below.)
