The History & Philosophy of Western Horoscopic Astrology:
ASTROLOGY, THE MUSIC OF THE SPHERES AND SOLOMON'S TEMPLE
With Andrew Brown
THIS TALK continues our series of talks which aim
to explore the history & philosophy of Western horoscopic astrology – from its Babylonian beginnings through to modern psychological astrology.
As we cross the threshold of the Age of Aquarius, ancient traditions are being studied with renewed respect. Continuing our series on the philosophical foundations of astrology, tonight’s presentation explores the ‘music’ heard by that legendary sage Pythagoras: the harmonies made by the planets in their courses. We will see how mystical attunement to the cosmos can be traced back to some of the earliest temples, dating from the Age of Leo, and through successive ages of cultural evolution. The timeless wisdom of Solomon’s Temple is manifest in ways often overlooked by contemporary culture; important manifestations are to be found here in Bath and we will briefly examine one instance that can be seen from Chrissy’s penthouse!
Andrew Brown MA DipArch has studied architecture, music history and astrology at various levels and continues to explore the relationship between these disciplines. During the second half of the evening, we plan to look at some topical astrological charts.
If you have a chart you would like to share with other astrologers, please send a request through the contact form on this website.

THE ASTROLOGICAL SUN:
with CLARE MARTIN
March 11, 2017 – 10am–5pm
The astrological Sun symbolises the centre of our being, our life force and our core identity. But when astrologers are discussing, analysing and interpreting charts, it is often the 'elephant in the room'. We will approach this great star with caution, because if we look at it directly it can blind us.
The astrological Sun has a complet hierarchy of meanings and we will use solar myths to explore light and shadow, day and night, spirit and soul as we journey towards the conscious realisation of our true personal authority and integrity.
CLARE MARTIN is one of the foremost astrological teachers of our age. She is the author of the most authoritative overview of psychological astrology now in print - the three-volume Mapping the Psyche.
