What is Evolutionary Astrology?
Evolutionary Astrology is a name used to describe a style of astrology that understands each person's birthchart as a map of the soul's evolution. The term Evolutionary Astrology is used by many astrologers and has a complicated history. You can learn more about the term's rich meaning and context in Steven's seminal work about the underpinnings of his technique, Yesterday's Sky. Steven's use of the term is one that celebrates the diversity of the field. But back in 2000, Steven got together with Jeffrey Wolf Green to attempt to articulate a set of core perceptions that would mark any astrologer's work as "Evolutionary." You can read this list here, which serves as a great starting point. Of course to truly understand what Evolutionary Astrology is, the best way is to experience it through a reading.
Steven's approach assumes that each of us is able to work with the astrological forces, not simply be directed by them. Coming from the core belief that there is a larger, transpersonal meaning to our lives, astrology can be used to help us live in harmony with that higher purpose. Thus, an Evolutionary Astrology reading is never "predictive" in a rigid or fatalistic sense. An Evolutionary Astrologer will talk about the questions you'll face, but will not spell out your answers to them. The archetypal field is rich both with meaning, but also with possibility. And it's the possibility that an Evolutionary Astrologer strives to celebrate.
In this video interview, Steven articulates his unique approach to astrology.
The Lunar Phases
The lunar phases are curiously marginalized in astrological practice. How is a Full Moon in Gemini different from a crescent Moon in the same sign? What about waxing versus waning? Based on The Book of the Moon, this lecture introduces an eight-phase interpretation of the lunar cycle based on the Pagan calendar of solstices, equinoxes, and cross-quarter days.
