What is kabbalistic astrology?

More than a technique within the world of astrology, kabbalistic astrology looks at a human being in his/her relationship to the universe from a highly spiritual point of view. The paradigms of kabbalah (the four worlds of one's inner universe, the sacred science of gematria and harmonics, the Tree-of-Life as a body/mind/spirit map, and the five vibrational levels of the soul) are all taken into consideration in the preparation and interpretation of a horoscope. Your particular "destiny" on the soul level, your creative gifts and personality challenges are addressed from the perspective of the "whole self" with you as the script writer and the creator of your life. It takes into account the notion of gilgul (reincarnation), and looks in a gentle and metaphorical way at patterns and signatures which could help you define where you are coming from and where you are going to.

How does it work?

Kabbalistic astrology works in the same way as transpersonal or humanistic astrology with the addition of one unique template, the Tree-of-Life map. This map is a conversion of the zodiacal degrees of the natal chart, via gematria base 360, to a map of the Tree-of-Life where the planets are placed in the spheres. For example, the rulership of the upper spheres is Neptune for keter (cosmic consciousness, the crown), Uranus for hohhmah (wisdom, intuition, right brain wholistic consciousness), Saturn for binah (understanding, memory, discernment, awareness of karmic cycles, connection to the Great Mother) and Pluto for da'at (knowledge, collective consciousness, prophecy). This map gives a picture and metaphors for the soul evolution that can be found in no other way, aside from direct clairvoyant and clairaudient perception. The Tree-of-Life map is a key to the reading of the soul records and offers an extremely clear picture of the health of the physical body with its energy systems.
