Robert Hand on Reconciling Modern and Traditional Astrology
With Chris Brennan and Robert Hand November 10th, 2018
Madame Blavatsky simply repackaged Neoplatonism in a somewhat polarized form with lots of Sanskrit terminology but  her worldview is basically Neoplatonic and most spiritual astrology is descended directly or indirectly from her. I personally prefer to go back to the source and when you do, you find the statement  I have commonly made that if you really carefully study Plotinus’ attitude to astrology, you discovered that was virtually identical to Rudhyar’s.


Reincarnation Gerry Cannon, September 6, 2019 Inspired by Helena Blavatsky‘s major works, astrologers in the early 20th-century integrated the concepts of karma and reincarnation into the practice of Western astrology. Notable astrologers who advanced this development. This dynamic integration of astrology, reincarnation and depth psychology has continued into the modern era. Astrology is based on “an acceptance of the fact that human beings incarnate in a succession of lifetimes.”
