This evening, Glastonbury astrologer John Wadsworth will be sharing the fruits of his many years working with the Zodiac as a wheel of initiation, transformation and healing. This talk coincides with the launch of John’s new book, ‘Your Zodiac Soul’, which is published by Orion Spring, 2018.
Rather than focussing on the zodiac signs as being indicative of twelve personality types, John will present the zodiac as a complete, alchemical emblem of the soul, offering twelve transformational gateways in the ever-turning wheel of life. This idea lay at the heart of the mystery school traditions of ancient Greece and Rome. Treating the zodiac in the manner of a medicine wheel that we all possess complete and whole within the psyche, John will take us on an journey to restore the power and integrity of its twelve archetypal images and demonstrate how we can engage with the wheel practically and alchemically in our everyday lives.
John became a professional astrologer in 1993, following a profound experience of communion with the night sky, which opened
his mind to the poetry of the cosmos and radically altered his worldview. He has been teaching astrology since 2000, running the Kairos School of Astrology in Glastonbury. He is known as an innovator in the field, engaging with astrology primarily as an experiential practice capable of facilitating profound healing and transformation, and is the founder of “The Alchemical Journey”, a contemporary zodiac mystery school based in Glastonbury. This work forms the basis of his book, “Your Zodiac Soul”, due for publication in March 2018. John holds an MA in Cultural Astronomy & Astrology from Bath Spa University. He also teaches night-sky astronomy and runs a mobile planetarium for schools.
