Astrology informs nearly every magical practice, either as a conscious element of the work, or as a hidden factor of the result. This is as true for the neoplatonist as it is for the shaman, in whose seasonal and archetypal observances tropical astrology has its birth. Astrology’s system of complex archetypes come from some of mankinds first experiences of time, seasons, divinity and fate. For some, astrology has a strictly personal application; a tablet of destiny. For others it is a font of pure celestial power and wisdom.

Join guest speaker Aleksandr Van Beber, of the Académie Gnostique, for a presentation on Tropical Astrology.
