THE ETERNAL INEXISTENCE OF A GREEK ASTROLOGICAL FEDERATION!

Εικόνα

(by Thomas Gazis)


If "actions talk louder than words" then inactions should talk equally loud! A single "inaction" is describing vividly the current situation of astrology in Greece: it is 2012 and we still don't have an Astrological Association (Federation, Union e.t.c.) in our country - which is actually considered the cradle of the modern horoscopic astrology! It has never been formed one, although astrology is extensively practiced in Greece at least for the last 40 years. Why this phenomenon of the "eternal inexistence" of a pan-hellenic association within the Greek astrological community?

Greek painter "Tsarouchis" (an Aquarian) once said: "In modern Greece you are (professionally, socially) whatever you claim to be". Laws are rather loosly applied in my country. Combine this with the fact that Greece is the poorest country in Western Europe - going now through a titanic crisis - and with the fact that astrology renders VERY WELL in Greece - twice to thrice the average wages and in several cases 5 - 10 times the average wages!) then you will realize why so many crafty people claim today TO BE ASTROLOGERS in Greece! Thus, a huge circuit of lucrative, uncultured "astrologers" is dominating the scene, putting aside, marginalizing, calumniating and even intimidating the (actually few) cultured Astrologers (who are seen as a major threat to these people's' interests). Maybe you begin to understand now why there is no Astrological Federation or Association in Greece. Because such an "inexistence" is utterly convenient to the many powerful and largely self-proclaimed "astrologers" in Greece!

In 2009 an (apparently not very honest - as you can see here) attempt was made to establish a Greek Astrological Association. A seven members preliminary committee was elected in order to pave the way for the establishment of the Association and I was one of this committee's members. When we began discussing the certification issue I advocated the view that only those astrologers who would pass the relative exams - proving thus their knowledge and their general formation - should be certified. But the majority of the committee was opposing my proposal, claiming that the basic premise for an astrologer to be certified should be him/her working for more than 5 years in the astrological phone line services or seeing clients for more than 5 years. If somebody covered this premise then automatically s/he should be certified as an astrologer without taking any kind of exams!

The funny thing is that just after a few days' time the (opposing to me) majority of this committee issued - on their own - a resolution expelling me from the committee on the (utterly false) grounds that "Thomas Gazis was not collaborating with the committee but was only promoting his personal interests"! And although they expelled me substituting me with another Greek astrologer, in consequence this committee did not accomplish any kind of work at all! Instead, after a while it was "dissolved in silence" by its members (who thus sold out the case of a Greek Astrological Association)!

I autumn 2011 the very same people who were responsible for the "silent dissolution" of the seven members commitee established (together with some close "friends" of theirs) a private - and apparently lucrative - astrological club named "Pame Astrologia" (you may read about it here).

The unnerving reality is that there are so many crafty people and "cliques" controlling today the greek astrological scene - and so huge financial interests at stake - that I don't think a true/democratic Greek Astrological Association will be ever established - at least not within the the next 20 years!
