The history of western astrology — as with much of western thought — has been deeply influenced by platonism and aristotelianism. At times, the impact of this is obscured from our awareness as it is, in many ways, the sea in which we swim, an entirely ubiquitous, a priori reasoning. Equally, we are unaware of its limitations this poses to experiencing a living cosmos. In the course of this talk, JD Kelley will briefly review this relevant history and influence to then turn to alternative frameworks for experiencing our cosmos based on animist, in particular, perspectivist, contemplations of an enchanted astrology.

John-David (JD) Kelley

John-David (JD) Kelley finds his way through portent and presence. An anthropologist and educator by trade, he is a child of wyrd-ness and delightfully dances in the play of the living cosmos. He is the chair of the Scottish Astrological Association, the chair of the International Association of Astral Magicians, and the organiser of Astro Magia Conference (astromagia.org). JD is a student of magical and mystical traditions both young and old and an enthusiastic practitioner of astrology. You can find him at Cunning as Folk where he teaches and practices his range of esoteric and interpretive arts, or you can follow his dance on all channels @cunningasfolk. https://www.cunningasfolk.com/
