Astrological magical ritual can be an elaborate endeavour of intricately-prepared costumes and theatrics and feasts. Or it can be a simple muttered prayer to the Sun, unassuming, but nevertheless perfectly suitable to one’s purposes. Ultimately, the goals are the same: to bring to bear astral forces to our benefit.

From creating astrological ‘fallout shelters’ against the impacts of a malefic conjunction to incantations imploring the celestial realm for guidance and wisdom, the history of astrological ritual is a long and fascinating record of human endeavours to actually work with the stars. It also provides an excellent foundation to draw from in our own astrological work.

From planetary ‘Intelligencies’ to the seven archangels, learn how astrologers have invoked spirits for assistance. The previous workshop in August sold out quickly, so make sure to sign up soon!

Along with energetic notions of astral influence, of ‘the starry dynamo in the machinery of night’, the history of astrology – especially astrological magic! – is full of endeavours to conjure astral spirits.

From the seven archangels standing before the throne of the Creator, to angels (and demons!) of the ever-revolving Zodiac, to the countless spirit catalogues ascribed to the divisions of the sky such as the haunted mansions and ancient decans, through to and planetary guides, astrological magic can be a thoroughly enspirited practice, strengthened, deepened and enlivened through a sort of astral animism.

February 4, 2016 from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM PST / 12:00-6:00 PM EST with a break in the middle

The Babylonians knew astrology as the “heavenly writing” of the gods. But if astrology is a language, then what is its structure? Over the last 14 years, Maria has been investigating how the vocabulary of astrology is inter-related when accurate delineations are made.
