Welcome Ceremonialist and Shamanic Practitioners

Our mission in this area is to support indigenous and earth-based traditions around the world. Invariably, most of these groups still emphasize ceremony and a living organic relationship with the As Above, So Below realities but they may no longer have direct knowledge or relationship with the night sky.

Ceremonialist benefit from the knowledge and experience of the night sky, synodic planetary cycles, and the Galactic Alignment all designed to further support these groups at this major Turning of the Ages. This includes working with stone circles, petroglyph sites, and taking journeys to sacred sites, cosmograms and heirophanies in the US and around the world.

Examples include the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers, Central and South American Shamanic and Medicine Traditions, Celtic Shamanism, Ceremonial Magic, Priestess and Priest Circles, and Vision Quest Traditions.

A Deep Look at How Saturn Teaches Us

thumbnail-largeWhen life isn’t Fair there is hope…and another way to look at it!

Healthy Saturn is necessary in any system
as it is responsible for structure and form.
Life without the Saturn principle would be similar to
the experience of always being on a large dose of LSD.
This is why it is important to understand that Saturn
is not good or bad; it’s simply the rules, and
why the best strategy is to learn to work with Saturn.

Summer Recommendations and Personal Zeitgeist

By Daniel Giamario

NOTE: These are views of the founder, and not necessarily those of the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School

As I prepare to embark on three months of research and adventure to Ireland, with the Renaissance of the Sacred Feminine chasing crop circles and sacred geometry, to the USA for the eclipse and a few SAMS events, Portugal, Bavaria, and maybe even Egypt, as well as the odd music festival, I wanted to share some book and music recommendations that have greatly contributed to my personal zeitgeist.

In Memoriam John Major Jenkins March 4, 1964 to July 2, 2017

There are two Memoriams from the founders of the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School

John Major Jenkins giving a talk

Daniel Giamario

by Daniel Giamario co-founder of the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School
I was greatly saddened when I heard the news of John’s passing. I had not been aware he had cancer. John and I met in person several times, and I always considered him a brother, as well as an esteemed colleague. He was a tireless and dedicated explorer of the Mysteries, and made major contributions to our understanding of the Turning of the Ages. On a personal level, I was honored that he listed my article on the Turning of the Ages in Mountain Astrologer magazine in 1998 as an inspiration and resource for his fabulous book Maya Cosmogenesis.
