If you enjoy astrology and have interest to know a bit more about how it works, while finding out more about yourself and yet sparking your creativity, you may enjoy Creative Astrology. This workshop was designed to help you understand the astrological language in an intutitive way, taking your own birth chart as a reference, and learning how to recognize the astrological symbolism inside yourself and in the world around you. This workshop is not intended to be a complete course on astrology, which would demand many months of apprenticeship and a different learning approach, but to give you a glimpse of how it is based upon and how you can see it in action in your life. as a complement you'll learn how to build a mandala journal and connect the mandala imagery to your chart and personal experience.
One of our exercises today was to look at digital collages made for each of the Elements in Western astrology - Earth, Air, Fire, Water - see what our reaction was to each of them. The Air collage was the first one I viewed and it immediately turned me off. Surprising me. The other 3 elements did not produce that kind of reaction, so I'm curious what will be revealed.
I have the planets Venus and Jupiter in Aquarius, an Air sign - last year, after having an intense dream, I consulted my friend, Lark, a very talented astrologer. She informed me that that portion of my chart was lit up and I think it still may be. After thinking about my immediate not-so-great reaction to that collage, I know it's something I'll be working with.
