This lecture seeks to restore this lineage by uncovering its roots within the mysticism and worldview of one of Philosophy’s greatest minds: Plato. Far from being a fringe study without any practical or intellectual merit, Western Astrology is actually applied Platonism, utilizing the Platonic academy’s most treasured insights to help us live our lives. Because of this, Astrology can stand on its own two feet as a philosophical discipline and worldview without depending on religion or the natural sciences.
You will leave this lecture with a solid grasp of Astrology’s origins, its essence as practical philosophy, the acumen to defend it from detractors. Most importantly, you will transmit to your clients and students not just the techniques and insight of astrological analysis, but also the rich spiritual history that Western Astrology claims as its birthright.
