Kelly says that when he looks into a birth chart, he’s “viewing the cosmic map that correlates to the pattern used to form a human life and a living soul. The birth chart is vast in its symbolism and so eloquent in its description of human character, but often there is so much information staring you in the face, that it becomes easy to brush over everything lightly with pat descriptions you memorized from textbooks rather than opening your mind and heart to the authentic birth vision and feeling of the chart.”
In this presentation Kelly asks, “What can we really say about a configuration of symbols in a chart? How does one open to the archetypal principles within that human life and give voice to what is witnessed so that it brings about a great transformation in the client?” Dane Rudhyar once said that the transpersonal astrologer is like a poet in the Greek sense of the word: A mover and shaker of souls. As an astrologer or astrology enthusiast, it’s vital to invoke the numinous power of the archetypes to empower people. Many people are struggling to find purpose and to develop their unique characters in a sea of forces attempting to normalize everyone. But within the synthesis of the symbols in a chart, a pattern of emergent properties is revealed that adds up to the authentic individual sitting there.
Using state-of-the-art concepts from his forthcoming book, The Tao of Astrology, such as the evolution of archetypes in human character and an interpretion flow chart that came to him in a dream vision, Kelly guides you through the adventure of doing astrology like an improvising jazz musician, playing the cosmic muse to illuminate and inspire someone’s life.
Kelly concludes: “Note that this lecture will occur on May 26th 2009 under the exact alignment of Jupiter-Chiron-Neptune in Aquarius, so expect it to be delicious! I have no idea what forces will pour out of me! But I can’t wait to find out!”
