Astrology 101: The Alchemy of the ElementsAncient alchemists considered the four elements (earth, air, fire, and water) to arise from the “prima materia,” the raw, undifferentiated base that all physical matter manifested from into form. Alchemists drew upon this understanding to transform physical substance by separating elements back down into their base and bringing them back together to create a new and higher form, an alchemical expression know as “solve et coagula.” Psychanalyst, Carl Jung, connected the alchemical process to the psychological and spiritual process of individuation where one integrates the unconscious and conscious aspects of self ultimately leading to illumination and wholeness.Based on the planetary alignments at the moment of your birth, you consist of a unique combination of these elements within the fabric of your cosmic DNA, your own unique alchemy. This can be seen through looking at your natal chart, a roadmap of where all the planets were located in the sky at the moment of your birth. Understanding your elemental composition reveals information about your personality and psychological wiring. Ascertaining if you are evenly balanced among the elements, high in one element, or low in one element reveals information about your potential strengths and weaknesses.In this workshop, you will learn about the four elements, skillful and unskillful expressions of each element, and how to cultivate each of the elements within your own life. You will explore how to create an alchemical balance among the elements. As a bonus, if you register early and provide your birth data (date of birth, time of birth, and location of birth), you will receive a handout of your own personal elemental composition found within your natal chart that you can refer to throughout the workshop to dive deep into your own personal alchemy.
