I received my foundation in astrology four years ago within the school of Shamanic astrology where I was first introduced to the concepts of reconnecting astronomy with astrology. Shamanic astrology as a paradigm also pulls heavily from Humanistic astrology of Dane Rudhyar whose focus included the Jungian archetypes and inner personal transformation.
Shamanic and humanistic astrology are evolutionary lines that stem from western Tropical astrology and differs from other astrologies around the world such as Vedic or Chinese astrology that use the constellations as a basis for charting. Western tropical astrology is rooted in the seasons hence the 12 signs evenly divided throughout the solar year beginning with the zodiacal sign of Aries. This timing coincides with the equinox when the sun rises due west or at the 0 degree point of Aries.
Like my connection with tarot, practicing western astrology heals my relationship to my Arabic & Iberian ancestry, reclaiming a piece that was a healing tradition in those lineages instead of the destructive forces of imperialism that had brought so much pain upon my native ancestors. It is that anchor point along with my own intersectional social justice groundwork that I am reclaiming the signs' archetypes from patriarchy and colonial influence including gender binaries, conquest, and hierarchy that litter contemporary astrological interpretations.
Part of my work of decolonizing astrology is to continue to return it to its holistic origins of having a living relationship with the sky. Astrology, especially when re-oriented back towards the living sky as practice, helps to break down our westernized linear sense of time and returns us to an earlier ancestral cyclical and non-linear space within the world.
