Unlearning Judgment Thanks to Shamanic Astrology

by Sheridan Semple

I’ll admit it, I’ve been a judger. I’m not proud of it, but thankfully Shamanic Astrology is challenging me to do better… much better. Even as I began to write, I was embroiled in judgment and felt so hypocritical writing this article. Then, I realized this is exactly what I need to write about because it reminds me that Shamanic Astrology is teaching me to stop judging other people. What a gift!

Keeping Sane with Shamanic Astrology’s 3 Worlds

by Sheridan Semple

If you’ve been around the Shamanic Astrology block a few times, you’ve probably heard about the shamanic concept of the 3 Worlds from Daniel and Cayelin. Thinking about the 3 Worlds and trying to stay grounded in all three has really helped me navigate the pandemic.

I liken it to a ferris wheel. If I keep riding the wheel through all three worlds, I do fine. If I stop, or worse get off, at any one world, that’s where I start to get weird. My motto is don’t let my ferris wheel stop. Don’t get stuck in any one world for too long.

If the 3 Worlds is new idea to you, here’s a quick explanation. Our realities constantly exist in three different worlds: celestial, middle and under. We may or may not be aware of the worlds, but our experiences often live in one or more of them. In Shamanic Astrology terms we associate Uranus and Neptune with the celestial (or upper) world, Saturn and Jupiter with the middle world, and Pluto and Chiron with the underworld.

A Gemini Teaching

by Mary Kern

I have heard it said a gift is never received until it is “fully” appreciated. I woke one morning recently with a grateful heart for the gift of my eldest sister, Dee. Our Shamanic Astrology paradigm allows me to see the flow of her soul and the beautiful gift she brought with her past mastery in Capricorn, (Capricorn Moon) perhaps patriarchal but dedicated to organizing and creating operating instructions to align community “in formation”.

Her current life intent (Rising Sign) was to evolve a higher level, a new octave of this Capricorn energy. This so perfectly aligns with what our collective consciousness now is dynamically exploring. Dee’s life story points the way to help us all navigate the seemingly current chaos.

Dee’s Venus, her current life version of the Sacred Feminine, is in Gemini. Learning Gemini gave her the capacity to bring imagination, humor and mischief to the world as an advocate to her higher octave of Capricorn.

She taught middle school for over fifty years employing her Gemini humor and its disarming, childlike innocence combined with the animated innocence of a Taurus Mercury, Sun and IC (in the 5th house) to illuminate, cajole, and playfully open space for what could otherwise be unruly, defiant, autonomous-seeking teen-aged behavior. What a trickster gift she had to get kids to do what they were asked to do. Read More
