About Daniel Giamario

Daniel Giamario is the Founder-Emeritus and Senior Advisor of the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School ™and creator of the Shamanic Astrology Paradigm™, also known as


The Giamario Approach ™. He joins together an academic background in Comparative Philosophy and Religion, with teaching meditation in two worldwide organizations, and extensive world travel.

Daniel learned astrology in the late 1960’s and was part of Dane Rudhyar’s humanistic astrology movement in the 1970s. After a vision quest experience on Mount Shasta in 1981, his astrological vision and spiritual path became more Earth centered and a shamanically oriented astrology was born. For many years, his specialty has been connecting astrology to the night sky at secluded locations and sacred sites in an “As Above -So Below” direct experience.  He has been a full time astrological consultant since 1984.

Shamanic Astrology has evolved as a rich blend of psychological, mythological, spiritual, and shamanistic elements, specifically designed to assist in the unfoldment of the individual’s life purpose and in navigating this pivotal point of the Turning of the Ages.

In the early 1990s, with the help of Cayelin Castell, the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School™ was conceived as a land based, nomadic, and virtual curriculum for training counseling and therapeutic professionals in the use of the most important and transformational astrological tools and techniques.

Daniel’s first book, The Shamanic Astrology Handbook, was revised and updated in 2012 and again in 2014. In 2013 he authored The Shamanic Astrology Divination Card Deck. His second book, Origins of the Shamanic Astrology Paradigm, became available in 2017. All can be ordered from the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School ™A variety of other Shamanic Astrology books are currently in development. Daniel has written numerous articles for Mountain Astrologer magazine and other publications. Throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s, Daniel traveled extensively, teaching workshops in over thirty locations. He currently is traveling less, except for regularly scheduled events in the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School™ curriculum as well as International events with the Renaissance of the Sacred Feminine organization.

Daniel lives and travels with his wife Lynne, going back and forth between Southern Arizona, Europe and South Asia. He is available for personal and phone consultations, lectures and workshops. He is also a lively and stimulating radio and television guest and has hosted his own radio show on the Seventh Wave Network. Daniel is currently developing a one-on –one personal apprenticeship program.

Daniel’s passions are the growing of the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School’s body of knowledge, further evolution of the The Giamario Approach ™, and continued research to obtain answers to his life-long question: “Who are we? And what the hell happened?”.
