Does Astrology Influence our Taste in Music?

Music, Sounds and Astrology
Music, Sounds and Astrology
Filed Under: Astrology, Knowledge, Spiritual.

Sounds have a very important role to play in spirituality and by extension, in astrology too. Stringing together melodic sounds provides nourishment to the soul and a reminder of this comes from Duke Orsino's famous line in the Shakespearean comedy, the 'Twelfth Night',

"If music be the food of love, play on."

An acceptance of a relationship between sounds and planetary influences exists in both Vedic and Western astrology. This is perhaps more integral to Vedic beliefs, but the concept of music and sound healing techniques is not alien to Western practices either. If however, you thought it was only astrology that makes a connection between the cosmos and sound, you'd be wrong. Although there is no sound in space, as space exists in a vacuum and has no media to conduct sound waves, sound is still of great value to astronomy. In fact, 'Sonification' is an astronomical technique by which data from observations are converted into sound. This method allows astronomers to study pulsar radiation, fluctuations in the 'Cosmic Microwave Background', solar oscillations, gravitational waves and even "Hear" a black hole!

The Astrology of Music

In Vedic astrology, each planet is associated with specific sounds. The 'Mantras' that correspond to the essense of each planet are composed of these sounds. Such chants are known as 'Beej Mantras' or 'Seed Mantras'. They are considered to carry the vibrational energy of the planets and are used for meditation and ritual purposes, to increase or appease the influence of a certain planet.

Given below are the resonant frequencies of each planet, referred to as, 'Planetary' or 'Cosmic' tones and are expressed in hertz. These planetary frequencies were first calculated by the German physicist and musicologist, Hans Cousto in the 1970s, using the formula:

Frequency = 1 / Orbital Period

Instruments like Tibetan singing bowls, gongs and tuning forks are often tuned to the frequencies associated with planets.
