Astrology: Science, Art, Religion? with Becca Tarnas and Matthew Segall

For some, astrology is a science, no less mathematically rigorous and empirically grounded than astronomy. For others, astrology is more of an art, with subjective interpretation and poetic expression playing essential roles. The beliefs and practices of astrology lead still others to view it as a religion or spiritual discipline.

In this presentation, Becca and Matt will engage in a philosophical and practical dialogue about the nature of the astrological discipline, its controversial status in intellectual and popular cultures, and how the language we use to describe it affects our understanding of what astrology can tell us about our world.

Becca and Matthew will be joining us remotely from their home in California.

ABOUT ASTROLOGY AS A SPIRITUAL PRACTICE

Coming into relationship with the cosmos through the art and discipline of astrology is a life-long practice. Astrology opens up realms of knowledge to its practitioners that fundamentally challenge dominant perceptions of a disenchanted universe, awakening us to deeper participation in the spiritual meaning permeating the cosmos. Becca’s lecture will bring transpersonal psychology and participatory theory into dialogue to show how astrology can be lived as a daily practice with profound relational and psychospiritual implications.
