Star Stories Astrodrama Workshop
THE MAGIC OF COSMIC CONNECTION
Join us for a Special Astrodrama and Experiential Astrology Workshop
Saturday, October 12, 2013
Experiential Astrology and Astrodrama are ways of acting out the planets in your chart, with the help of others, to give you an experience of how these energies feel and operate inside you and in your life. Experiential astrology takes studying the stars out of a purely mental pursuit to include the body, mind and spirit. Its somatic emphasis offers an opportunity to feel the energies, often accompanied by instant insights. The April/May issue (#168) of The Mountain Astrologer focuses on Experiential Astrology. Within this issue Tom Brady describes: “…in the lexicon of philosophy, ‘experientialism’ is the position that concrete experience is both the origin and ultimate validation of all human knowledge. Experiential astrology then, is any form of practice that conveys information through sensory impressions rather than language-mediated intellectual constructs”.
This workshop is for all levels of Astrology lovers. We will explore planetary energies through visualization, movement and sound. We will dress up and act out various aspects of each other’s charts. There is absolutely no acting experience needed, only an open-hearted willingness to explore and play. Beginners will be supported by more seasoned Astrologers but rest assured that this type of exploration is a new experience for everyone involved.
Remy Lindsey R.N. is a Professional Astrologer who has been on a quest for healing through body mind spirit practices for over 30 years. She has studied and taught Somatics and Visualization. She has been utilizing Astro-drama in beginning level Astrology classes and offering workshops for the last 5 years. Please contact Remy with your birth date, time and place. She will print out your chart before class. She would also like to know if there is a specific area of your birth chart which you would like to explore in this way.

Quotes from participants in our Open House astrodrama preview:
“I am so very glad that I volunteered to do the Astrodrama and am continuing to reap the benefits of playing Joyce’s Capricorn Moon. My own natal Moon is my least aspected planet, so in typical astrological blindness to my own chart, I’ve always blamed all my fear issues on my Cancer Sun. After allowing my own Capricorn Moon to finally express itself through my Leo Asc. (an inconjunct is never easy), I’ve come to realize that almost all of my deep-seeded fears and anxieties actually rest in my Moon. ”
“From the time I consented to play Uranus, I felt “his buzz” and incessant ideas about how to help our “subject” break free filled my head. “
“For me, there was a feeling of surprise about what actually came out of my mouth in relationship to the other “planets.” It showed me a part of myself that I’m less aware of on a daily basis, and it wasn’t particularly comfortable, but it was very Scorpionic. I seemed to be saying, “you lightweight Librans buck up and get down to the work of opening to deeper change, rather than a more superficial desire to be liked and have fun.” I never thought I, Kate, would say that I had a better relationship with Capricorn energy than Libran, but that’s how it played. I felt very supportive of Joyce’s Moon and the seriousness of its intent. So I was transported out of my more typical experience of myself and I found that most valuable. “
“I felt burdened with the responsibility of being Mercury. It was so easy to be superficial with words, just as it is in life“.
Joyce Mason volunteered to have us “play out” a challenging aspect in her chart and this is how it felt for her, “I had become so used to the dysfunctional family of the planets squaring my Moon and having to cope with them creatively and constantly, I didn’t even realize how much fear and anxiety my Capricorn Moon constantly processes. Of course, with Neptune one of the Square Players, my awareness was bound to be a little murky … but awareness is the key to overcoming. I have been popping insights ever since about how much fear exhausts my energy supply. I am already noticing fear faster and starting to assess whether it’s based on anything real. Very liberating. Many thanks to Remy and the Astrodrama players!“
