Returning to the Basics: The Underpinnings of the Practice of Shamanic Astrology

~ By Beau Taylor

 

Lately I’ve been going ‘back to basics’, turning my attention to the writings of some of the early pioneers in humanistic astrology in order to more deeply inform my personal astrological foundation.

A Seed by Dane Rudhyar

written in 1973

I feel we are at the
threshold of a new age,
and that we need now,
more than anything else,

a new approach
to human relationships
and to social organization.

We need a planetary approach,
we need a synthetic approach.

An International Conference of the Divine Feminine
by Mary Kern

This article features insights on the Goddess, the eight seasons and phases of life, the power of 8 and 12, and the nine Morgens.

May of 2019 found me in Barcelona joining my friend, Sarah, a kindred seeker who moved abroad to enjoy a simpler life. Our destination was the Portuguese International Conference of the Divine Feminine. After a brief stay in Spain we traveled to Lisbon with much help from Cristina Moreira, a SAMS’ associate in Portugal who extended us a warm welcome and helped make every step of the trip perfect. (Much gratitude for all her help.)

The conference  venue was surrounded by vineyards and forests in the countryside outside the ancient hill town of Sintra, Portugal on property once original headquarters for the ancient Druids. Their ancient ceremonial site lay in a lower meadow where a large geodesic dome was specially erected for this event. The Almma Hostel on the adjacent hilltop provided lodging for many of the guests as well as an outdoor eating area overlooking vineyards and vistas of glowing sunsets. A medieval tavern sat alongside the hostel, its upstairs once a Druid meeting place—now a shop for mystical books and gemstones. Read More

As Above So Below, As Within So Without

by Dana Zia

I started studying Astrology in the late 80s after meeting Daniel Giamario and receiving my first reading from him. At that time, he was living in Maui and was teaching one day classes on different aspects of this paradigm. I loved those classes! His way of perceiving and communicating Astrology was so digestible and usable to even those that hardly knew anything about it. I became a groupie.

Fast forward 30 years to present day and I am still studying Astrology with Daniel and now Cayelin Castell and other Shamanic Astrologers. Even though Shamanic Astrology (SA) is the most understandable and down to Earth form of Astrology I’ve ever studied, there is no lack of depth in it. I have found it is multilayered and as rich as the sky itself.

One of the foundational principles of SA is the opening lines to the Emerald Tablets “As Above So Below, As Within So Without”. This axiom is a reflection of the patterns of the constellations and the cycles of our Solar System and how it affects us transitory mortals spinning around on our beloved blue marble, Earth.

When I first heard Daniel and Cayelin use this statement, I understood the basics of it and thought it was quite clever to relate it to the stars but I really had no idea how deep this goes! Read More

Michelle Obama on “Becoming” through Saturn and Pisces

It’s a relief when the true essence of Saturn as wisdom keeper and guide has the opportunity to express itself. And when this essence is expressed through a powerful woman who is also of colour, and has not yet reached her second Saturn return, you know that something big is shifting.

Michelle Obama is currently wrapping up a 34 city tour promoting her book, “Becoming”, released 13 days (November 13, 2018) after the beginning of her 7th Venus return on November 1st, lasting until June 9, 2020. It became the year’s best seller after only two weeks, and may be the best selling memoir ever. Certainly her publisher checked her chart.
