The History of Astrology
June 25, 2015
Hosted by Janey C. McCarthy, MEd and Mary Jo Wevers, PhD
According to historian Benson Bobrick, Astrology is "the origin of science itself. From Astrology are derived astronomy, the calculation of time, mathematics, medicine, botany, mineralogy, and by way of alchemy modern chemistry." Join us, and our renowned guests Eric Francis of planetwaves.net and Tarot scholar Christine Payne-Towler as we discover what a rich and colorful impact Astrology has made on history and the history of ideas. We will take you through its impressive 5000 year evolution. Be surprised by who studied it, practiced it, paid for it, and ruled by its wisdom. Have we got your attention? You are not alone. Between 30-40% of Americans (100,000,000 people) believe in this sacred metaphysical science and art. Join us for a fresh and credible view on this much aligned subject that's once again being taught in colleges & universities all over the world. "Astrology is astronomy brought down to earth and applied to the affairs of men." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Janey McCarthy, MEd, left her technology career behind to become a Jungian Karmic Astrologer after discovering what Carl Jung had confirmed: The natal chart is a sacred, geometrically perfected personal database. Professional recognition as an astrologer and writer came when the website Planetwaves.net chose her article ‘The Silence Between the Words’, from 500 submissions, for the 2014 Annual Edition of Listen. She offers workshops and presentations, and counsels her astrology mentors, peers and clients from the east coast.
Mary Jo Wevers, PhD “re-discovered” astrology late in life, and found it came to her intuitively and easily. An enthusiastic and inspired astrologer for 15 years, she counsels clients, teaches classes and gives workshops and seminars on special topics in astrology. She writes a newsletter and has a blog on her web site, MaryJoWevers.com. She is a featured speaker at local metaphysical schools and churches and has been a conversation leader in the Northwest Astrology and Tarot Salon.
