Esoteric Astrology deals with the abstract cause, the philosophy and the inner or more subtle point of view. whilst Exoteric Astrology is content with the effect, the practice, and the concrete or outer expression, preferring the more tangible and evident to the speculative and theoretical.
To everything existing there are two sides, the spiritual and the material, the essential and the formal. We are living in a world of duality through which something subtle and undefinable is continually passing and flowing, as an essence or principle behmd all things that have this dual manifestation. This may be fittingly illustrated by the contrast of Day and Night, sub-divided agam by Sunrise and Sunset, Noon and Midmght, when the conditions of the earth are completely changed and reversed, The only external factor here is the rotation of the earth upon her own axis before the face of the Sun. But what is it that causes the rotation, and the changing influence of Sunrise and Sunset?
Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter, are four distinct seasons of one year, produced by the annual revolution of the earth round the Sun. Infancy, youth, maturity, and old age are correspondences resulting from birth, growth, decay and death. But what the Birth and the Death? A million exotenc facts will not suffice to answer these questions, for they are concerned with our esoteric enquiry into that subtle, indefinable something which is the essence and cause of all manifestation.
There is always a higher and a lower, a finer and coarser aspect of the same substance, an abstract and a concrete, a past cause and a future effect of everythmg in nature ; and there are two corresponding points of view by which it may be studied and known. With these ideas before us we may safely assume Astrology to have its dual expression, or what may be termed its esoteric and exoteric points of view.
