Oh God, I just don't have the time today to properly address this statement - 
hopefully Sal does and I know he'll do a better job than I anyhow.

The pertinent sutra that Patanjali stated is scientific.  The sun in our solar 
system, and any solar system in the universe, will affect life here on earth 
and in any exoplanets in predictable patterns.  For example, spring starts the 
life cycle or growth here on earth; autumn starts the fall of the sun's power 
as can be seen in the turning of the leaves, and winter signifies the death of 
the sun, which brings the cold and snow on the earth's northern hemisphere.

IMO, yes.  The 12 houses and the zodiac would apply on any of those distant 
worlds.  Their solar system may or may not have the same nine planets that 
we're using here on Earth.  But the same "impulses of intelligence" would have 
to be calculated in its own solar system.

I believe this is the reason why Patanjali wrote in his yoga sutras that 
samyama on the sun brings forth knowledge of the world.  IOW, life on these 
earthlike exoplanets can be described by the same zodiac signs that are 
pertinent here on our earth.  Doesn't that make sense?

It depends on how astrology might work. Consciousness requires a sophisticated 
brain to operate, maybe they are affected by gravity which is the only known 
force to be infinite in extent, and therefore affects things at great distance 
unlike the other known forces which are locally contained like the ones that 
hold atoms apart.

Trouble is, if gravity is the culprit then planets are out of the picture 
because they are too distant to affect us more than, say, a lorry going past on 
the road. And the extra distances put between us and them at various times in 
our orbit - that the ancients didn't know about - would affect any charts too 
much for them to be reliable, not that they are. So you can cross gravity off 
the list of influences,
and any other field for the same reasons.

John Hagelin claims there is a link between planets and parts of the brain 
forged by quantum superposition between atoms during the big bang. John Hagelin 
should be stripped of his PHD and publicly ridiculed for even daring to utter 
bullshit like this that he knows is complete bollocks. But he wants you to 
continue coughing up for yagyas and charts. Or maybe he's so dumb he believes 
it? Nah, it's all part of the con of using science ideas to justify their 

If astrology is real - and there is absolutely no reason to suppose it is  - I 
would avoid travelling to other planets. Just think what being on Mars would do 
to someone with Jupiter
strong in their chart! You're about 100 million miles closer to it! And what 
affect will Earth have on us? Just think if there is some physical force 
connecting us to planets surely the one we stand on would swamp any effect from 
the others, or doesn't ours count?

So your question makes sense if astrological affects are real, different worlds 
around different stars will have different types of influences according to 
however the types of planets and their distance from brains might affect their 
owners. It would have to be a universal effect. Trouble is, I think it's an 
ancient superstition that clings on into the modern world by virtue of it's 
malleable vagueness. I don't think it's a very good explanation for anything at 
all, especially destiny and
personality. Probably why NASA left it out of the equation when they planned 
the trip to the moon.

Fun concept to ponder though...
