This is a problem if we are interested in authenticity, in genuinely recovering aboriginal worldviews. On the other hand, the adaptation of indigenous astronomies from around the world under the impact of the globalizing tendencies of New Age culture is a legitimate topic of religious study. The sources for aboriginal cosmology are as limited as they are in any other oral culture, a problem that is compounded by the initiatory nature of much traditional knowledge and a consequent reluctance to disclose it to outsiders; disclosure would, of course, destroy its value.
33 This might ring true of the ancient world and oral cultures, but does the modern astrological consultation, with its use of archaic symbolism, bind both practitioner and client into an otherwise forgotten world of magic and shamanism?

Talking of astrology’s increasing popularity in the 1980s, Liz Greene and Howard Sasportas, pioneers of the integration of depth psychology and astrology, wrote: The astrological consultant has, willingly or not, been usurping what was once the role of the priest, the physician, and the psychiatrist.
We may never recover the full details of the diverse range of traditional Australian constellations, although we do know that they were radically different from those in other systems. Astrology was important as a means of providing information on appropriate times for different actions, but our knowledge of it is fragmentary. We have no evidence of complex, codified systems, so we assume that Australian aboriginal cosmology was pragmatic, flexible, and designed to serve human needs rather than to subject individuals to a greater cosmic scheme.
