It is my opinion that the root of all Religion does not only include Astrotheology, but also Kundalini Awakening. I don't think Alchemy is BS. I believe it is Humanity's Birth Right: The Tree of Life.

The spiritual reasons behind the use of astrotheology become much more apparent when you follow this series in particular. In actuality the astrological cycles are completely interwoven into the spiritual awakening ideas such as the journey of the soul through planetary spheres that I've put in bold. Many people don't understand this because ZG, for instance, doesn't really focus that deep on the issue. It's just a brief drive by on the astrotheology of the ancients. This all pretty much supports your current path of discovery.
