About the event
About the event
Astrology has always been a source of wonder and wisdom for humankind throughout the years. From Ancient Egyptians to Babylonians, Greeks and Romans, the celestial bodies offer us a great knowledge if only you speak their language. Yes, you heard us right! Astrology is a language no different to that of English, Swedish or Japanese.
If you want to learn how to speak Astrology, all you need to do is grab your pen, paper and join us at this eye-opener Astro 101 workshop. Let me warn you, though! After this 2-hour immersive experience into the zodiac, planets and other heavenly bodies with a Jungian approach, your life will never be the same.
You will be guided by Helen Çığda Gökçınar, Mythopoetic Astrologer + Tarotist and Literary Scholar through this transformative journey.
She will walk you through the steps to understand human psyche and ultimately your true SELF with the guidance of celestial bodies.
Are you curious about this quest? Let’s go over the itinerary -
- Welcome on board: Introduction to Jungian Astrology
- Know thy quest: What’s a birth chart? How to decipher it?
- The Journey of the Hero through 12 signs and houses
- Teachers, tricksters, dragons to slay: Planets
- Spiritual Mentor: Lunar Nodes
- Homecoming: Weaving it all together
What will you leave with?
Once you finish this workshop you’ll be able to gain a clearer understanding of how Astrology can contribute to your self-development journey and help you to get to know your quest and purpose better.
Upon arrival, the participants will receive their professionally calculated Birth Chart and a Astro 101 cheat sheet.
You don’t have to know your exact birth time for this workshop as it is not a private chart reading. Your chart will be calculated with Sun in 1st house technique, if your birth time is not provided.
Who is this suitable for?
You don’t have to have any prior Astrology knowledge. This workshop is suitable for beginners. Yet, it is comprehensive enough to engage astrology enthusiasts as well.
We’ll be discussing Tropical Zodiac (Western Astrology) through Depth Psychology and Mythopoetic lens.
Participating this event will also prepare you to the upcoming Astrocartography 101 workshop in April.
Helen Çığda Gökçınar is a Literary Scholar, Philologist, Writer, Mythopoetic Tarot and Astrology Instructor, Trauma-Informed Coach and Theta Healer.
