Hand, Robert – What Kind of Astrology Do We Want Anyway?

It is now clear that there are many different aspects of astrology and many purposes which astrology can fulfill. Within limits we can predict; we can offer advice in coping with a client’s ones world, relationships and so forth; we can assist people in choosing good partners for relationships, we can answer specific questions and choose times that are best for taking action. Since the early 20th century astrology has also been used to assist people in their spiritual paths and to reach for greater wisdom and enlightenment. Of course we do not have to choose only one from among these and many other choices, but there are definitely things that we have to decide about what overall changes need to be made in contemporary astrology that would be real advances. This talk will present some possible answers to this question.
