When ancient people first sought to explain the mysteries of their own lives, they looked to the heavens. There, they saw a perfect reflection linking them directly with an omniscient universe. The study of the stars and the study of the psyche comprised a single science - astrology - that led C. G. Jung to describe astrology as "the first form of psychology". Visionary Activist Astrology escorts you through the mists of time to our own century, when science has verified what ancient people knew instinctively: All life and all matter is universally connected.
With wit and scholarship, author Caroline W. Casey offers a new vision of astrology and its language, using a rich, detailed system of symbols and mythic archetypes to describe the key relationships underpinning all of creation. Join this respected authority and see how the heavens overhead offer a valid psychological system for understanding the larger forces that shape our universe - and your unique destiny. More than nine hours of detailed personal instruction cover:
Visionary Activist Astrology is a guided tour of the unlimited potentials outside your window - and within your own spirit.

I listened to this from start to finish in one day. A beautiful mix of astrology and mythology which was easy to listen to and apply to modern day life in an intelligent and grounded way.
"This was really good!!"
I really enjoyed this book. I have listened to it a number of times now and it is so full of stories and info I'm sure I will listen to it many more times. The author is clearly passionate about the topic and is a wonderful story teller. For anyone interested in archetypes or astrology I would highly recommend.
"Good fascinating book!"
You will maybe enjoy it more if you have previous knowledge of astrology. However, the stories are great, helpful, and inspiring, and the characteristics of my sign fully coincide with what I am. It's a good book; maybe I will study astrology in the future.
I honestly didn't expect an astrology book of poetic philosophy so beautifully written and read. It was actually meditative for me. The frequency kinda slowed me down in a good way. Plus it was filled with so much great insight that could have only been generated from one who has spent countless of hours, days and years to self discovery. One who knows the planets reflect us as we do them. The planets come alive with so much character. I also loved all of the little tidbits of knowledge occasionally here and there from different culture, history and mythology. Well done to the author. I really enjoyed this book.
"must read if you are beginning to learn astrology"
loved this. will read again and until all the info absorbs into knowing.
her voice is so easy to listen to and I will be looking for more of her work now.
"I never give books 5 stars but this is a real gem!"
I love Carolyn Casey. She is funny and witty and makes big concepts accessible and easy. I loved this book and can't recommend it highly enough to anybody! I especially loved the chapters on Saturn, Venus and the moon. Enjoy
She's able to go deeper and deeper and somehow make it comprehendible even if it's your first time hearing the language. Great sense of humor, and rhythm. Definitely recommend this one!
"An Absolute Gem"
For anyone interested in going on a transformative astrological journey, this book is unparalleled. I love hope Casey ties in the micro and macrocosm, giving new light to our individual paths upon the collective landscape.
