Event: The Recurring and Evolving Soul in Astrology

We explore the contributions from ancient India and Greece and the modern Theosophy movement and their implications for astrology through lifetimes.  We will take a comparative and critical look at many version of spiritual astrology in the modern world, from Leo through Bailey and  Rudhyar to Forrest and Green.  Greatest detail will be on the work of Alice Bailey.  We will see many ways to apply the idea of the soul’s incarnations to astrological delineation and practice.
