This day-long seminar was originally presented at the Melbourne Astrology Conference. Demetra presents a sweeping saga of the development of astrology from its origins in Babylonia, its consolidation in Egypt, the diffusion of astrology through the Roman Empire and sojourn into the Persian and Islamic Republics, to its 12th Century reintroduction into Medieval Europe.

In this engaging and enlightening seminar the interface between astrology and ancient philosophy, religion, myth, and politics is deeply explored. How the Gnostic, Hermetic, Neoplatonic, Christian, and Jewish traditions regarded one’s life through the replection of the stars and the concept of fate and free will is brilliantly articulated.

This series will leave you in awe with a rich context for astrology’s place in our history, and a new awareness of the profundity of the astrological tradition and its legacy to the human imagination.

Asteroids can bring us to the brink of the great mystery when we discover their significations woven into the tapestry of our fate from the moment of birth. They have been linked with spirit guides, daimons, karma, and destiny, providing the specific details of the major life themes indicated by the planets.

In addition to Ceres, Pallas, Juno, and Vesta, astrologers now have access to zodiacal positions of more than 20,000 named asteroids. This course will propel you into the study of all those other asteroids. Personal names of important people in your life, geographical places that hold special destiny for you, mythic deities that span world cultures can point to vocational paths and life-altering experiences, historical personages with whose work you are attuned, and broad concepts that contribute to your character.
