The Alchemy of Chiron

by Cayelin K Castell

Chiron’s archetypal pattern is most connected to the Shamanic Healer taking us to new edges where our past wounds become the medicine, or gifts, we carry into new territory or new realms of experience.

Chiron transits facilitate a Shamanic Journey, or initiation, we all experience at one time or another whether we recognize it as such or not. Consciously choosing to be with this process does not lessen the intended impact of such a journey, but it does help us to successfully support the alchemical transformation intended to take place.

This process is the Chironic philosopher’s stone, changing base elements into gold, transforming poisons into medicine. At this time humanity’s collective Shamanic Journey includes healing the past wounds of all the limiting beliefs that have been the basis of how we perceive reality and the current cultural rules and laws that have resulted, greatly limiting our ability to realize our true divine potential and sacred expression.

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.

Shamanic Astrology sessions provide clues within an archetypal and mythical framework, creating greater awareness for conscious participation with life purpose and Great Mystery. Each session acts to cellularly activate the divine blueprint and bring it further into conscious awareness and understanding so we can uniquely and creatively express our true essence.

A Shamanic Look at the Turning of the Ages

Author’s note: The original form of this article appeared in the second edition of my book, The Shamanic Astrology Handbook, co-written by Carolyn Brent (now known as Cayelin K Castell since 2006) and published by JCA Unlimited in 1995*. The essence of this information, developed in the late 1980s, has been a regular part of my classes and workshops for years. For me, the original spark igniting this investigation came from a wonderful essay written by Robert Hand in Essays On Astrology (also similar information is mentioned in some of his tape sets) concerning the movement of the solstice and equinox points into new constellations. Hand’s essay was inspired by C. G. Jung’s treatment of the same subject in his book, The Aeon. Read More
