In Memoriam: Ursula K Le Guin October 21, 1929 to Jan 22, 2018

by Daniel Giamario with additional comments from Cayelin K Castell

One of my favorite authors and a major source of inspiration to me (she appears as a listed source on my new website) passed away at age 88 on January 23, 2018. She was a towering force in speculative and imaginative fiction, succeeding in bringing respect to the often maligned fields of science fiction and fantasy. She was an early and articulate writer on sex, sex, feminism, ecology, and the dangers of technocracy.

Her books that inspired and influenced me the most included “The Left Hand of Darkness”, about a world where everyone was the same sex, neither male nor female, and then in certain seasons of ‘heat”, could for a brief time morph into either male or female, without knowing beforehand which one it would be. I also loved the “Earthsea Trilogy” with its theme of incorporating the shadow to create wholeness. Another special read was her novella “The Word for World is Forest”. And so many others. Read More

Latest Book Recommendations From The Founder

By Daniel Giamario, December 2017

The Soul Speaks: The Therapeutic Potential of Astrology by Mark Jones, 2015
More than any other contemporary astrologer, I really like and recommend English astrologer Mark Jones. His approach, like mine, is extremely influenced by Dane Rudhyar and is restoring Evolutionary Astrology to its Rudhyarian roots. Mark Jones was one of our presenters for our recent Preparing for 2020 Summit, where he spoke about one of his specialties, the planetary nodes. The Summit is over but can still be purchased for $87 including all 15 presentations and many other bonuses. All proceeds go to support the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School educational non-profit.

The Soul Speaks has a really fine chapter on Saturn that is very much in harmony with the Shamanic Astrology Paradigm (tm). When I am asked if there are any other astrologers that I recommend, he is one of my first choices. Read More

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

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.
