Most systems of Medieval and Modern magic and divination have their roots in Astrology. But what if those supposed roots are wrong? What if we’re only accessing the surface roots, rather than the deep roots that are at the true base of the system? This workshop will explore in detail the basis of Western Astrology, and how it was corrupted at various stages, until reaching its present, fairly impotent state of mere psychological interpretation. We will begin with pre-astrological omens, move through Hellenistic Astrology, the Arabic period, the Latin West, and the different types of astrology, before examining the most serious break that comes with a change in world view at the Enlightenment/Endarkenment. After that, we’ll examine how and why modern astrology went wrong and I’ll argue for a return to the previous magical world view, rather than the modern/atheistic one that is present (even in many modern religions). Finally, we’ll see the basics of how an astrology chart is constructed and what traditional astrologers actually do with the information in a chart. The goal is to access a deeper, richer, more ancient model of astrology that may, in turn, change the way we look at magic and divination. No previous astrological knowledge is necessary. Those who do have a background in modern astrology may discover a wholly new basis for their own studis and work. Handouts will be provided.(2 hours)
