Gary Christen with a brief history in the field of astrology, how astrology reflects culture, individuals and mutation, and a forecast for the future
In this episode, we spoke with Gary Christen, a 2/4 Sacral Generator and well-known practitioner of Uranian Astrology (and its developing expression as Symmetrical Astrology). An astrologer since his teens, he is the first person in modern times awarded an accredited B.A. degree in astrology from Livingston College at Rutgers University in 1974. A professional astrologer since 1969, Gary co-founded and is the current president of Astrolabe, Inc., assisting in the development of many Astrolabe products and is an encyclopedia of astrological knowledge.
Gary takes us through a wild ride and history lesson in the field of astrology including the beginning of his astrological journey in the 60s and the many individuals who contributed to the process. He shares some background on the Uranian system of astrology and the early days of astrological computing. He emphasizes how astrology is always the product of the culture in which it was developed and how mutation often comes through a single individual. He touches on some of the challenges we’re faced with today in terms of astrological education and gives us a sense of hope for astrology and humanity in the future.
