This lecture considers and explores temporal and eternal time, and returns and beginnings, in the context of astrological passages.
One of astrology’s great offerings is reflecting on time through diverse techniques. Each cycle, no matter its length, has a beginning, a middle and an end, renewing itself in the birth of another cycle. There is a past and a future in every present moment marked on the path of every celestial orbit.
Time is also considered from the perspective of the unconscious and how it shapes the way we foresee transits and transitions. As astrologers, do we consider the mysteries of time enough? Have we sufficiently contemplated the intricacies of time to hold our own views on prediction, predictive techniques, ageing and recurrence?
