Publisher's Summary

When ancient people first sought to explain the mysteries of their own lives, they looked to the heavens. There, they saw a perfect reflection linking them directly with an omniscient universe. The study of the stars and the study of the psyche comprised a single science - astrology - that led C. G. Jung to describe astrology as "the first form of psychology". Visionary Activist Astrology escorts you through the mists of time to our own century, when science has verified what ancient people knew instinctively: All life and all matter is universally connected.

With wit and scholarship, author Caroline W. Casey offers a new vision of astrology and its language, using a rich, detailed system of symbols and mythic archetypes to describe the key relationships underpinning all of creation. Join this respected authority and see how the heavens overhead offer a valid psychological system for understanding the larger forces that shape our universe - and your unique destiny. More than nine hours of detailed personal instruction cover:

  • What astrology tells us about planetary connections
  • Symbols and structures of the psyche
  • How to use your celestial chart as an inner navigational tool
  • Meditations and exercises for connecting with the energy of the universe

Visionary Activist Astrology is a guided tour of the unlimited potentials outside your window - and within your own spirit.

This was really good!!

I really enjoyed this book. I have listened to it a number of times now and it is so full of stories and info I'm sure I will listen to it many more times. The author is clearly passionate about the topic and is a wonderful story teller. For anyone interested in archetypes or astrology I would highly recommend.

Good fascinating book!

You will maybe enjoy it more if you have previous knowledge of astrology. However, the stories are great, helpful, and inspiring, and the characteristics of my sign fully coincide with what I am. It's a good book; maybe I will study astrology in the future.

Poetic Planetry

I honestly didn't expect an astrology book of poetic philosophy so beautifully written and read. It was actually meditative for me. The frequency kinda slowed me down in a good way. Plus it was filled with so much great insight that could have only been generated from one who has spent countless of hours, days and years to self discovery. One who knows the planets reflect us as we do them. The planets come alive with so much character. I also loved all of the little tidbits of knowledge occasionally here and there from different culture, history and mythology. Well done to the author. I really enjoyed this book.

Provides a basic grounding in Astrology

This book is perfect for a beginner, wanting to understand the role of the planets in the astrology chart. For those looking for a more in depth analysis of chart interpretation, other books on the subject matter would be more appropriate.

Am awakenef!!!

O!!!!
I realised how much depth the mythological stories , regarding each season and planet, vibrates within our divine souls, Wow!!!!
An incredible author...Her whimsical, yet potent style reeled and held me captive.... in her journey shedding light with form...as we traveled with each planet's radiant story. I understood more of the "As above , So below" concept. Or" as it is in heaven" phrase in our tradition prayers....
I will refer to this book again especially during the sacred Soltices...Thank You.....!!!!

Loved This Book

I just loved this book - it was full of so much more than I expected - and I especially enjoyed the chapters dedicated to planets - this book made me feel happy! Also - I really loved the narrator - his inflections were spot on - very relaxed and calming - very easy to listen. I think this would make a great book club addition. I found myself wanting to talk about this with others.

Good vision of Astrology

I loved the book, found her words very inspiring. I love Caroline's way of scratching the surface to get deeper meanings, transcending ordinary common knowledge - at her very stylistic way - to arrive at another and more optimistic view of things, over the fear nonsense we live in today with the news and people way of thinking

This is a masterpiece!

I listened to this from start to finish in one day. A beautiful mix of astrology and mythology which was easy to listen to and apply to modern day life in an intelligent and grounded way.
