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.

music to my ears

ONE.... I have to be able to listen to the voice. Caroline W. Casey soothes me with her voice as she drops some major Astrology on you! I listen to this over and over and over.

Wish book included charts:(

Having the author narrate her own book is amazing. This is my first experience with Caroline W. Casey, and she definitely intrigues me! I do wish this book came with some sort of astrological chart/graphics to give newbie readers (like me) a better grasp of constellations and their physical locations to the planets and other celestial objects.

This Is The Real Thing

This is a book I've been looking for all my life. It explains exactly what the symbolic shorthand of Astrology represents: the cycle ... The Cycle of Life described in a way that makes sense; that is easy to understand and provides an aura of credibility that justies the pursuit of the study even to skeptics. The author is charming and witty and brilliant and even better than that, she interprets the planets, signs, houses and aspects in ways you actually feel good about for yourself and for others' without fear of undermining the intended therapeutic and inspirational value of a reading.

An astrology absolute must have.

I love this book. So much so I have lost count how many times I have listened to it, and each time I gain at least five more ‘aha’ moments for something that just clicks. Caroline Casey shares her wisdom on all things astrological and mythological in a meaningful, passionate and compassionate way, sprinkled with wit and humour throughout. I have learned more from this tome than I have from the many study programmes I have previously undertaken. A must for anyone even remotely interested in learning about astrology.

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.
