Friday, April 14th, 7:30 PM, CDT Via Zoom The Four Feminine Asteroids as Guardians of the Quadrants, Bryan Trussler
Topic: The Four Feminine Asteroids as Guardians of the Quadrants.
A consideration of the four feminine asteroids re-imagined as protectors rather than rulers. As a different kind of heavenly object, it is necessary to imagine for them a different function in the chart, without recourse to brute force insertion into the crowded sky of traditional schemes of rulership. Unlike the gods of the planets, they do not meddle on a whim, but they will defend against what comes at them. Their myths are cautionary tales about vigilance and virtue and not taking for granted the joys of life.
Bio:Bryan holds two degrees from Wilfrid Laurier University: a double-honours B.A. in History and Religion & Culture and an M.A. in Religion & Culture. His graduate thesis was the translation of a twelfth-century Latin manuscript treatise about love written by one of the leaders of the Crusades.
Astrology chose Bryan in the late 1980s but he incubated it for a long time before doing anything with it. He began with Taoist Chinese Astrology and he still considers that to be his first passion. Western astrology came later. Bryan enrolled in the CAAE program the second year of its existence and began teaching astrology in the mid 1990s. He has been a fixture at Canadian conferences for nearly twenty years and has lectured in Canada, the United States and Europe. He has been published in both The Mountain Astrologer and in the ISAR journal The International Astrologer.
