Has anyone read The Gospel and the Zodiac? Shocked

Quote
First of all, do not be put off by the title of Bill Darlison’s book, The Gospel and the Zodiac: The Secret Truth About Jesus. This is not a quasi-theological treatise written by a newspaper astrologer. Neither is it another rehash of The DaVinci Code. On the contrary, this book is an erudite and highly readable contribution to esoteric thought that has been a largely unspoken but nevertheless significant tradition in all major religions since time immemorial.
....
After a brief explanation of the part that astrology and cosmology has played in many religions, Darlison presents the central thesis of the book: that St Mark’s Gospel should be understood as a mystical text in which the account of the ministry of Jesus becomes a vehicle leading the reader through the successive twelve signs of the zodiac, each one representing a different stage on the way to spiritual enlightenment.

Friend, I believe that this text written by Father Alexander Karloutsos is more useful for the members of this forum: Astrology is Astrolatry. Wink
