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.

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

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.

Revealing the 8th Principle of Shamanic Astrology

The Renaissance of the Sacred Feminine Reveals
the Eighth Main Principle of Shamanic Astrology

By Daniel Giamario, and guest contribution from Cristina Moreira

For many years there have been seven main principles of Shamanic Astrology. You can review them here

Particularly relevant to this discussion is the seventh principle that states: “Shamanic Astrology especially values the Divine Feminine, the Circle of Grandmothers, and that the Earth Mother is ultimately whom we serve at this Turning of the Ages”.  The Eighth principle follows from the Seventh, and will be revealed at the conclusion of this article.

Responsibility of the Shamanic Astrologer

by Daniel Giamario, originator of Shamanic Astrology

This article is a follow-up to last month’s offering entitled Shamanic Astrology is Not Predictive.  I have recently been rereading and reconnecting to some of my original sources of daniel-chimneyinspiration and guidance from the early 1970’s, when the foundations of my astrological and philosophical approach were forming.

Recently I reread a lucid and essential article by Alexander Ruperti from the publication called The Astrological Journal, Volume 17 Number 1, published winter of 1974. Ruperti was a colleague and friend of Dane Rudhyar, and their work cross-pollinated each other.

Ruperti’s book Cycles of Becoming is on our SAMS reading list.

Here are some excerpts from the article, as these main points are still as relevant today, as they were back in 1974, if not more so!

So many of my deep views are expressed in this writing including:
(1) Uselessness of the statistical approach
(2) Irrelevance of a “scientific basis” for astrology
(3) And most importantly, the actual reasons for being an astrologer at this time
