About the European Apprenticeship Program
This apprenticeship program provides a practical education in client centred evolutionary astrological counselling. This process is inseparable from a commitment to one’s own personal and spiritual growth. Both aims are incorporated into Steve’s teaching. Students of life not wishing to attain a professional practice are most welcomed, and any of the seminars are designed to be done individually to the certificate.
Level 1 certificate is awarded after the student has attended 3 by 5 day programs. and then qualifies for a listing on Steve's website.
Level 2 certificates after 6 by 5 day programs, please note any programs already completed will count toward this certificate level.
The apprenticeship program commenced in Australia in April 2007, and this year sees us celebrate our 7th successive year. Lisa and Christine head Mercurial Connections, and co ordinate Steve’s Program here in Australia, & are excited too now provide participants throughout Europe with easy accessibility to the program. Any information you need or questions you may have, we are here to be of service to you and the continual growth of the program and evolutionary astrology.
Program Content - 2013 - Love and Mischief
The sacred erotic manifest in our lives in more ways than pornographers and fundamentalists can imagine. Committed monogamous bonds are one form, perhaps the most ultimately transformative. But then there is the dance that single folks do, and the mind-morphing "encounters" that unfold in almost everyones' life from time to time. Right at the heart of the matter are those astonishing moments when souls touch and our faith in the eternal mysteries becomes a palpable as the force of gravity. What light can astrology shed on these precious connections? Can it help us sort out lasting truth from the hormonal fog? In this workshop, we honor the fact that there are many good sexual paths available, each of which can serve a soul purpose. We'll respect sexual diversity, we will rejoice in the fact that humanity is moving except exploitation. Technically, the seminar will explore intimacy from three perspectives, first the message of individual birth chart, second, our charts interact interaspects. And third, the composite chart. The language of the workshop is psychological. The background is unabashedly metaphysical - reincarnational language is used where appropriate, and techniques for seeing the prior life dynamics of the couple are analysed. Overshadowing everything is a core commitment to extolling and supporting the power of human, imagination and creativity to shape our responses to the questions the planets ask.
What is Evolutionary Astrology?
Evolutionary astrology integrates ancient metaphysics and modern psychology. In the light of that fusion, even something as simple as “being a Gemini” takes on far deeper meaning. The symbols no longer simply describe you. Instead they speak clearly and challengingly of your path through life—and of its pitfalls.
Freedom and choice dominate the system. Symbolism is read in an open-ended way, with a guiding spiritual purpose underlying each configuration however vexing it might seem.
Nothing is inherently static or stuck. In the light of the idea of reincarnation, every planet and point in the chart represents a pre-existing dilemma, far older than your birth certificate. Each one also promises a possible resolution of that dilemma.
In practice, evolutionary astrology depends upon the dynamic interaction of two simultaneous astrological perspectives. First, we learn to read “the chart behind the chart,” which is to say, we grasp the predicament of the soul based on unresolved prior-life experiences This technique depends heavily on an analysis of the lunar nodes, their rulers, and planets in aspect to them.
As we take our conventional "delineations" into this evolutionary context, we move beyond "description" into "prescription." We marry the power and honesty of present-tense humanistic psychology to the wisdom traditions which have been mostly lost in modern culture.
Second, we use a more familiar astro-psychological approach in order to understand the present personality—but we interpret that personality and its dramas as a tool which the soul is using in order to achieve its higher evolutionary aims. As we take our conventional "delineations" into this evolutionary context, we move beyond "description" into "prescription." We marry the power and honesty of present-tense humanistic psychology to the wisdom traditions which have been mostly lost in modern culture.
