Sun, February 23rd: Acyuta-bhava Dasa (Adam Elenbaas)
Ancient Astrology and the Nodes of the Moon
Most students in modern astrology are taught that the north node of the Moon points to the lessons we are supposed to learn or qualities to be cultivated in this lifetime, whereas the south node of the Moon represents past gifts/lessons and habits that we are currently trying to release. But it turns out that this use of the nodes is relatively new and that the nodes of the Moon were used very differently by ancient astrologers in both the east and the west. In this talk, we will, therefore, explore the traditional use and philosophy surrounding the nodes of the Moon by ancient astrologers, while also demonstrating some of the practical ways in which the traditional use of the nodes can be meaningfully incorporated into a modern birth chart reading.
Acyuta-bhava Dasa (Adam Elenbaas) is a professional astrologer, author, and yoga instructor from the DC/Maryland metropolitan area. Acyuta is the critically acclaimed author of “Fishers of Men: The Gospel of an Ayahuasca Vision Quest,” (Tarcher/Penguin 2010), and one of the founding writers/contributing editors of the popular web magazine, RealitySandwich. Adam holds an M.A. in English, Language, and Literature, and an M.F.A in Creative Non-Fiction Writing. Acyuta teaches courses on Hellenistic astrology, Yoga Philosophy, and Horary Astrology, and is an initiated disciple of Gaudiya Vaishnavism (Bhakti Yoga).
