Writing the Story of your Life Through the Astrological Houses
A monthly, on-line course for those who feel inclined to write about their lives using astrology as a lens for exploration. “Writing is a way to organize your life, give it a frame, give it a structure, so that you can really see what it was that happened.”* Astrology also helps us find a structure and frame through which we can see what really happened. In my own writing i am finding bringing these two powerful forces to bear on my life experience is illuminating!
This course will meet on zoom so it is non-local. You can join from wherever you are. You can show up in person or choose your own time to watch the video of the class.
Each class will consist of three parts:
- Sharing (between 500 and 1500 words) something you wrote based on inspiration from the previous session.
- A discussion of the house of the month.
- Some writing prompts and exercises. based on keywords for that house which will hopefully activate a story or an image for you to work with.
My intention is to bring writing and astrology together, for you and for me. These are two things i enjoy a lot and i generally like to teach what i love. I will provide encouragement and astrological prompting as well as insight into the astrological events of which you write. You, of course, will write.
Never having taught a class on Zoom or of this nature i expect there will be a bit of getting it down but writing and memory, as well as astrology are not linear pursuits. A bit of circling will be good for us all!
