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

Shamanic Astrology is Not Predictive

(Includes thoughts on the Election)

By Daniel Giamario

2010-April-C-and-D-008881I have recently been hearing that some folks have lost faith in astrology because the vast majority of astrologers had “predicted” a Clinton victory. For example, at the recent ISAR Astrology Conference (where I was a speaker), two separate panels of national and international astrologers unanimously forecasted a Clinton victory. What’s up with this?Even a psychic goat predicted a Clinton victory!

The problem is that the assumption is often made that astrology is a predictive science. Many cling to that notion. But it could well be that the era of predictive astrology is over.

The Shamanic Astrology Mystery School has never been about prediction. There was a small group of astrologers, including myself, who were at the recent ISAR conference that was billed as being about forecasting and predicting, who came there to articulate the non-predictive perspective. Let me explain.
