Years ago, when John Coats was International President of the TS,
I wrote to him and asked if theosophy or HPB "believed in" astrology.
In his reply he said HPB had said that astrology was only as good as
the astrologer and the Western version of the day didn't take into
consideration ones karma from past lives. For himself, he thought it
was a tool which allowed one to focus the intellect and allow the
intution to work, comparing to crystal ball gazing. He did not give
me a reference to HPB's comment, but if someone on the list knows
where I could find it I would be interested to read her exact words.
