ARTSTROLOGY has been coined from ART and Astrology. Most Astrologers are ASSTRLOGERS, they demean and limit you to the periphery of thoughts which have limited Word Views. I don’t know why they spout thoughts which have negative orientations. Reading many a astrology column has left me depressed and my day spoilt. There is also a reverse paradox that when astrologers predict good things, it rarely happens. Many a time, I have not won even won a little amount from windfall or major financial bonanza that they have promised. I have also cast spells to gain money and they too have been in vain. I have made a wow that in 2016 I will no longer read astrology columns and devote myself to the art of ARTSTROLOGY.
Now what is ARTSTROLOGY? I have been influenced by Philosopher Nietzsche’s Dionysian element of art that is rhythm and ecstasy and his doctrine of becoming the Ubermensch through the Will to Power. In ARSTROLOGY, there are no lies, no stars; there’s only a future that you bring into existence through language of Signification. Signification is a concept I have borrowed from Structuralism. According to linguist philosopher Saussure, all language is a sign. A sign is made up of the Signifier and the Signified. The signifier belongs to the sensate or sensible realm of meaning and the Signified belongs to the intelligible realm which means that it is an idea. For example if I say that rose is passion, rose becomes the signifier, a concrete visual thing and passion becomes the connoted idea.
What I am trying to create through ARTSTROLOGY is creating a signifier and the corresponding signified and bringing one’s own affirmations into teleological existence. ARTSTROLOGY is affirmative prediction.
What I have done with ARTSTROLOGY for 2016
a) I put the Signifier Literary Prize and I put the Signified: fame and recognition.
b) I put the Signifier Money, and I put the Signified: Financial Freedom.
c) I put the signifier Copulation and I put the Signifier: Ecstasies.
d) I put the signifier Travel and I put the signified gaining new weltanschauung.
Please try out your own ARTSTROLOGY and see if it works for you. Write down your thoughts, wishes and dreams and desires and break them down into Signifiers and Signifieds.
