Did you know that astrological medicine was the dominant medical model in Europe for thousands of years? It was once said that a physician without an understanding of astrology was like a lamp without oil. It was so common, in fact, that not even the folk healers would be caught dead without their almanacs. But these days medicine and magic couldn’t be more separate, what happened?

In this interactive, seminar-style workshop, learn about the history of what has come down to us as ‘medical astrology’. An unfortunately complex and dizzyingly haphazard tradition, we’ll sort through the myriad interpretations of healers throughout the ages. We’ll discuss how people used the movements of the stars to make or take medicine, and why so many of them have such different opinions on the “right” way to do it. But most importantly, we’ll ensure everyone goes home with a little taste of the benefits of working according to the stars. Each participant will receive a small sample from the instructor’s personal astrological medicine cabinet, included in the class cost.

Please note: although this class is listed as part 2 of a series, it is not required that participants attend part 1 prior to taking this class. It is, however, strongly recommended that participants have a basic understanding of the language of astrology before attending part 2. Simply knowing what the signs, planets, houses, and aspects are should suffice. 

Maximum number of participants: 15
