The Heart Speaks

With the present transits at hand we have a touchstone to guide us thru these narrow waters to living successful lives. The focus of this class will be on the people we love and our selves by understanding how the heart operates thru the chart.

The Astrologer as Soul Friend: Cultivating Soulfulness in the Consulting Relationship

Several important traditional texts take time to describe an approach to understanding a person’s spiritual and religious temperament through their chart. Using original research and client case studies, this talk explores how these approaches can be creatively joined to the best practices of interdisciplinary clinical pastoral care. This allows us to reimagine the spiritual content of astrological consulting through a nonsectarian lens that helps the client cultivate soulfulness in accordance with their unique spiritual temperament.

Astrology, Synchronicity, and the Scientific Paradigm

Astrology can facilitate some of the deepest philosophical musings that humans are capable of. In the modern world today we are deeply invested in the scientific, materialistic, and causative paradigm. But what new possibilities might the future bring? Why is synchronicity the most appropriate explanation for the ‘mechanism’ of astrology? Can astrology and science ever get along? As in every area of life, questions are ultimately more important than answers. Let’s ask some!

Through Past Lives

The clues presented in the astrological chart about our past may be related to the experiences reported during Past Life Therapy. We will present some clinical cases with their respective natal astrological charts and we will be able to observe the astrological positions indicating the recollected memories. Besides Astrology, it is a journey through history hidden in the clues of the astrological houses of memory.

When The Moon Is New

Watching the Moon chase the Sun around the chart by progression is slow business. When the two bodies align, everything changes. The experience is like death and rebirth. Logic fails. The only successful way through it is to follow your heart – but suddenly your heart speaks an unfamiliar language. Everyone who lives a normal life span will experience this passage at least a couple of times. Here is how to be ready for it.

The Astrology of Past Life Regression

Your chart tells you more than who you were in a previous life, it shows you how adept you are in experiencing past life regressions. I start with a delineation of Edgar Cayce’s chart. Then show charts of those who easily remember their past lives, those who cannot be regressed, those who are adept at leading others through the experience. We will look at what seems to be the common planetary factors.
