Medical Astrology mini-series in Marshall, NC
Humans have looked to the stars understanding, seeking a guiding force, long before written records can account. Most of our ancestors lived astrological knowledge; turning to the sky for pilgrimages and plantings, tracking & tides. We’ve been coevolving with the heavens since the beginning, it only makes sense an entire school of body-mind-spirit medicine was crafted around its presence. Tracing the exact origins of medical astrology is difficult because it transformed as cultures merged, however, there are references to this system before the turn of the millennium. Nearly every traditional culture has some evidence to the importance of the events taking place in the night above. Much of the western medical astrology we know today was a vital part of health and healing from the Hellenistic period until it’s decline during the scientific revolution.
Astrology is a complex language that can be studied indefinitely. Each component contains a piece of the puzzle, and there are components within components. Western astrology is a true piece of hermetic knowledge - As above so below.
Personally, I believe astrology may be based on the twinkling heavens but is actually grounded in Earth energy, in seasonal knowledge. When we look at it through this lens it becomes intuitive and easy to grasp. For many of us with European decent medical astrology provides a constitutional system to practice herbal medicine and other empowering wellness modalities that have been in our blood for centuries.
This series is a foundational step in western medical astrology using the Placidus house system. History will briefly be discussed then we’ll dive into the core of this system over the course of 4 classes, looking at each piece individually and how it layers in our chart to create our astrological make-up. While providing a rooted understanding of Astrology in general, we will spend time exploring how each piece informs physical, spiritual and global health, as these cannot be separated.
