Booting Misogyny Out of Astrology
A Seminar with Drs. Ralph & Lahni DeAmicis
The culprit was the Roman Astrologer Emperor Constantine. At the time when he made Christianity Rome’s official religion there were numerous wealthy temples controlled by women. His Catholic, or universal church only had male priests who were subsidized by the state. The head of the Roman religion, the Pontifex Maximus and the Vestal Virgins became the Pope and the nuns. The priestesses of the other fifteen Roman Goddesses, such as Juno, Ceres, Minerva, Venus, Diana, Juno and Bellona, the Goddess of war, were gradually eliminated and their resources usurped by the state.
During the talk we will correct the language that defines the roles. We will show you how to use the incredibly graceful, core geometry upon which the table is based, and which was abandoned in the process of devaluing the importance of the feminine in our society and personal lives.
