The galactic center and the Great central Sun
This galactic-center-the-great-central-Sun page and the entire website are excerpted from You and the Universe, a handmade, individualized fine art book on astrology, mythology and astronomy through which the recipient's complete astrological reading is woven.
Our Sun is but one of a collection of about 200 billion stars known as the Milky Way, around which it revolves once every ¼ billion years or so, taking its retinue of planets with it. The galactic center around which it revolves is the center from which all stars in this and all galaxies are born, and is the highest vibration human mortals can receive and use here on Earth. This is possibly because one of its children, our Sun, acts as a step-down transformer and mediator of the galactic center's energy to the denizens of one of its grandchildren, the planet Earth. This is behind the love you’re receiving.
Astronomers hypothesize that the centers of most galaxies (including our own Milky Way) contain a black hole with the mass of millions or billions of Suns. They are believed to form because of the very dense stellar populations at the centers of galaxies. Over billions of years, because of their propinquity, many of the stars in a galactic core merge into an object so massive that even light cannot escape -- hence the name "black hole."
