The traditional astrology tool of dignity and debility, with the system of five essential dignities, can be a powerful and nuanced way to add detail to chart interpretation. It has been pretty much lost in modern astrology.

The goal of this class is to show how you can reclaim more of the power and subtlety of this tool.

"To read what was never written..." learn the role of astrology in Walter Benjamin's philosophy.

 

This August 6th - a two-hour workshop
from 9:00 - 11:00 AM

 

Known more for his theories on history and the status of art in the age of mechanical reproduction, German philosopher Water Benjamin (1892–1940) also wrote about astrology. This workshop examines the overlooked role that astrology plays in his body of work.

First we begin with establishing the context of astrology in Germany during the Weimar Republic, a period of severe turmoil in German history. Then we explore Benjamin’s writings on astrology. Along the way, we will cover topics such as allegory, the history and culture of early modern Europe, graphology (the art of interpreting handwriting), and optical technologies such as photography, cinema, and the newly invented planetarium.

Steven Forrest has another perspective on Evolutionary Astrology that complements the methods developed by Jeffrey Wolf Green.

This is the second course in a series that explores the modern iterations of Evolutionary Astrology as a methodology within mainstream astrology. This course focuses on the variation developed by Steven Forrest. Along the way, students will also see how Steven's approach fits into the history of astrology (particularly in the last 150 years).
