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.

What Does a Shamanic Astrology Reading Cover?

This is an introduction to Shamanic Astrology, as taught by Daniel Giamario, and is specifically designed to provide valuable information about your first Shamanic Astrology reading. This introduction covers the philosophy of Shamanic Astrology – how the chart is revealed through the script, the cycles and their significance, and an investigation into relationships through chart comparison.

Shamanic Astrology readings provide clues within an archetypal and mythical framework, creating greater awareness for conscious participation with life purpose and Great Mystery.  Each reading 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-authored by Carolyn Brent (now known as Cayelin K Castell) 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
