Astrological Magic – Thursday, October 8, 2020 – 7:30 – 9:15 pm, Anvil Centre, New Westminster (Lecture)
If astrology is the diagnosis, magic is the remedy, and these two arts have traveled hand-in-hand since antiquity, though the connection was forgotten in the 20th century. Scholars are only now unearthing the deep ties between astrology and the magical arts. In this eye-opening talk, Nina Gryphon explores the vast landscape of astrological magic, including planetary talismans, lunar mansions, fixed stars, and zodiacal decans. We will learn about the philosophical and historical underpinnings showing how astrological magic works and how we can use it to create positive change in our lives and ourselves. Join us to deepen your spiritual practice, and learn more about this fascinating and growing field!

– Workshop: We will learn the foundations of working with the planets to bring their energies into our lives in a constructive way. This one-day workshop teaches practical elements of astrological magic, including the fundamentals of electing the best moment for magical rituals. Astrological magic depends on the right time for magical work, as well as using the right materials and themes for ritual. Learning more about astrology and magic helps us effect constructive change within our lives and ourselves, and also makes us better astrologers, as we experience the planets first-hand from within. The workshop will start with the key building blocks of astrology, learn about magical ritual components, and then bring it all together to learn about planetary talismans to empower students to time their own rituals and make talismans.
