Astrology of the Heart: Astro-Shamanism

532 pages, 450 color illustrations

Well-known astrologer/author Steven Forrest writes of Astrology of the Heart:

“As Castaneda’s don Juan would put it, Erlewine ‘moves fluidly between the worlds.’ But not just between the mental, intellectual constructs of those worlds. Michael, like a Druid’s apprentice or a Buddhist monk, has submitted to the spiritual direction of men and women he was humble enough to realize were wiser than himself. He has received initiations. He has gone down into the Dark, into the Great Silence, into the Luminous Void. He has, in other words, done something not enough astrologers do: mind-training. He has visited the worlds to which the astrological symbols refer. He speaks of them not with the authority of erudite footnotes, but with the authority of direct experience.

“Walking his talk, Erlewine has placed a stepping stone between two very different worlds. He stands on that middle stone, with white water roaring all around him. And his finger is pointing at the moon… I find myself filled with gratitude toward Michael, and also with a sense of encouragement… This is beautiful stuff.” — Steven Forrest

Astrology of the Heart will be of particular interest to the counseling astrologer or those astrologers who want to understand the shamanic nature of astrology at a deeper level. Many books are available about standard astrological techniques, but few about the inner meaning of astrology as it is understood and used by professionals.

This book is about life paths, rites of passage, climacteric years, turning points in the life, and how to find and understand them in your horoscope. Not a book of abstract theory, but a practical manual to understanding what out-of-the-body experience, the chakras, initiation, and other esoteric topics are really about.

As Erlewine says, “The esoteric is hidden in, of all places, plain sight! What is missing is our being able to grasp these experiences. This book shows you how.”

Back then, we might have chosen to home educate
our children instead of sending them to public schools.
We might have had home births, rather than hospital
births. We might have chosen to eat more whole and
organic foods, as opposed to eating more processed
foods. We might have preferred self-educating
ourselves, rather than pursuing a more formal course
of study. We might have elected to experiment with
alternative states of mind, rather than the excepted
religion of our times, and so on. You get the idea.
These are choices we might have made back in the
day.

At that time, way back then, these choices were not
all that clear. I know, because I was there. These
choices did not stand out, because everything was
all mixed together in the present moment, and there
was more like a haze of confusion than a list of clear
choices to make. We had to go by our gut feeling in
making choices. Unconventional choices were just
that: not conventional. They went against the grain
or trends of the time. Some (many in fact) even
carried penalties, imposed by society, like choosing
to not finish high school, or choosing to educate
yourself rather than get a degree. It took guts to

make those hard choices and there were few
rewards other than personal satisfaction.

Now, let‘s jump ahead some 30 years and look at

the personalities that result from these different
choices.
