The body speaks to us in many ways, and when we listen with a “planetary” ear, a symptom will often lead to a particular place in the chart, and a specific theme of burning or restriction, of twists and breaks or out of control growth. How do we learn the archetypal language of symptom? If we pay close enough attention, our bodies communicate through the language of symptom, a language that astrology can help us decode. The signs of the zodiac have been linked to different parts of the body since ancient times, and they can offer clues to the underlying tensions and conflicts that may be expressed in physical symptoms. Rather than a seminar about medical astrology, this is an exploration of the astrological language of the body, of the relationship between psyche, soma and the stars. The ability to think symbolically is at the heart of all astrological work. How can we learn to listen to the nonverbal messages that come not only through the body but also through our experience of the everyday world? The understanding of symbolic language can be extended to our cars and our homes, our pets and machines, then offered back to our clients in healing communication.
