Astrology In Community

The Astrology Hub’s 2019 Forecast Marathon was an extraordinary success, and I felt the tremendous excitement and joy of being part of a group of professional astrologers looking ahead at the transits and celestial dynamics of the coming year. The videos from that event are still available for free until Sunday, January 20 at midnight, or you can sign up for the Astrology Hub’s Inner Circle to gain lifetime access to these recordings.

I had the great privilege of learning astrology within a community of scholars, and I cannot emphasize enough what a gift it is to work with astrology in a group of dedicated individuals. Astrology Hub’s Inner Circle offers an online community of astrological devotees, and I am honored to be one of thirteen astrologers this year who are the Lunar Guides for the Inner Circle members.

Learn More about the Inner Circle

Each month, members of the Inner Circle will be guided by a different astrologer through the transits of that lunation cycle, and participants will have the opportunity to learn to work with astrology in their daily lives through New Moon and Full Moon classes and ceremonies.

I will be leading the Sagittarius lunation cycle, offering a New Moon class titled “Celebrating the Arts” on November 22, and a Full Moon class titled “Deepening Our Relationships” on December 9, both of which will include the Mastery Topic “Cultivating Your Archetypal Eye.” There are soulwork practices aligned with each lunar phase during the month, as well as transit updates throughout the lunation cycle.

If you have wanted to learn more about astrology, and how to practice this discipline in your daily life, I highly recommend joining this online community. The enrollment period is currently open, and there is no contract or commitment to stay longer than you wish. There are a variety of benefits when you enroll, not only access to the recordings of the Forecast Marathon and classes with the Lunar Guides, but also a different astrological gift from each participating astrologer.

It would be a delight to commune with the cosmos with you in community.

Astrologers in Profile Interview

The astrologer and teacher Adam Elenbaas kindly invited me to do an Astrologers in Profile interview, in which we discussed my journey into becoming an astrologer and scholar. Doing the interview was a deeply meaningful and moving experience for me, and I am so grateful to Adam for the opportunity to share my story in this way. Our conversation ranged through a wide variety of topics and ideas, and we dove into some rich philosophical and spiritual eddies.

The Astrology of Dreams

I joined Renn Butler on his podcast The Astrology of Dreams: Explorations in Archetypal and Holotropic Astrology for a two part conversation on archetypal astrology and the upcoming Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto triple conjunction. We shared how we each came to the study and practice of astrology, and spoke of our experiences working in the field and some of the spiritual, philosophical, and psychological insights we have come to. Finally, we turned to the current and upcoming transits, looking back to earlier periods with the same alignments, so that we could come to some understanding of what may be in store personally and collectively in the next few years.

Astrology As A Spiritual Practice

United Astrology Conference

This Thursday, I will be making my way to Chicago for the United Astrology Conference, the largest gathering of astrologers I have ever attended. Astrologers from all over the world, representing a vast diversity of astrological lineages and perspectives, will be presenting on their research and practices, insights, discoveries and awakenings.

I will be offering a presentation entitled “Astrology as a Spiritual Practice,” which brings transpersonal spirituality and participatory theory into dialogue with the discipline of archetypal cosmology and the practice of archetypal astrology. Coming into relationship with the cosmos through the art and discipline of astrology is a life-long practice. Astrology opens up realms of knowledge to its practitioners that fundamentally challenge dominant perceptions of a disenchanted universe, awakening us to deeper participation in the spiritual meaning permeating the cosmos. I will be exploring how astrology can be lived as a daily practice with profound relational and psychospiritual implications. My presentation will take place on Monday, May 28 at 4:30-5:45 pm.

For those unable to attend UAC, I will be speaking on this same subject later in the summer for the Metropolitan Atlanta Astrological Society on Thursday, August 16 at 7:00-9:30 pm, Eastern time. Whether I connect with you at either or both events, I look forward to deepening the exploration into the spiritual dimensions of the cosmos in which we all participate.

Everlasting Concrescence: A Process-Relational Cosmology

My essay on Alfred North Whitehead’s process philosophy and its intersections with archetypal cosmology has now been published in Issue 6 of Archai: The Journal of Archetypal Cosmology, edited by Grant Maxwell.

Everlasting Concrescence: A Process-Relational Cosmology

Substantial evidence has been put forward for the astrological perspective, demonstrating the multifaceted ways in which astrology works. Yet below the surface of this evidence lies another question: why does astrology work? What does the recognition of this highly precise, yet poetically subtle, correspondence between planetary movements and events on Earth indicate about the nature of the cosmos? The evidence for planetary correlations with human affairs can, in many ways, address the alienation from the rest of the cosmos felt by the human being in late modernity. Through the recognition of such symbolic patterns, we can feel the deep interconnection that has always been present between us and our world. We are our world. The cosmic web has not been cut, although part of our human journey has been to feel as though the threads of our existence have been severed.
