A Three Part Series – Recordings Now Available
The pandemic presently gripping the world shows signs of continuing to harass humanity for some time. A study of pandemics through history reveals interesting patterns that we will share. Spiritual science helps us to find causes and responses, assisted by an understanding of events in the life of Christ. Seen historically or mytho-poetically, exploring these patterns and responses can strengthen us to deal with our challenging times.
Part One: Patterns in Pandemics—seen through the lens of star wisdom. We will examine the present pandemic and others through history to show
patterns in celestial events in relation to these phenomena.
Part Two: Background to Pandemics—as seen through Spiritual Science. The spiritual research of Rudolf Steiner points to unexpected and surprising
causes and effects of pandemics, with which each of us must grapple.
Part Three: Assistance from Christology—whether you appreciate Christ events as history or as mytho-poetic artistic activity, understanding the
Christ Impulse can help us find our place and roles in the present drama.
This course goes beyond personal biography to world events, yet comes back to how an individual can respond in one’s life.

Testimonials, Astrology of Plagues, August 2020
“In the last session someone voiced that it was a healing experience. To attend to the deeper meaning of Covid-19 through the process of the three sessions was deeply healing, for it took to heart a living relationship between the Stars and human experience, over ages of time, and brought to consciousness the dialogue that is made visible thereby. After the first session I woke during the night knowing the presence and activity of humility and reverence for Cosmic Wisdom; this was engendered by the attentiveness each of you has given to the planets and stars in relation to plagues and pandemics, the careful devoted work of observing and listening. To be given the chance to attend with you is a gift of great substance and healing effect. To learn to perceive the qualities of the Beings of the Planets and stars in the way that we have through this experience and bow with reverence towards them is deeply humanising. You are etched into my heart’s fabric through this. Thank you warmly.” – AD
“I was so filled with new information. I can say that a person without much astro knowledge could still follow your thought. The stars above set the stage for human activity. I am motivated to increase my understanding of the star configurations. This is now solidly justified within my studies and I am very grateful for this.” – RR
“I am so grateful to have our three presenters bring us such an announcement of a ‘spiritual view’ of the challenges of our pandemic moment that places it in historical context through the lens of Astrosophy and Steiner’s ‘teachings.’ (So grateful, indeed, that I nominated our intrepid presenters as my ‘forerunners,’ anticipating that in due time I will look back on this course they bring to us as the heroic deed(s) that caught my attention and inspired my intention to go as deeply as I can into the waters they’re swimming in… exciting indeed!) My congratulations and many thanks to all who contributed! Looking forward to more! while ‘digesting’ the material presented here.” – DN
“I enjoyed the program immensely. It was a huge ‘download,’ especially coming as it had to, on zoom. I wouldn’t want it trimmed or the content slowed down though. I found all of the breakout questions to be stimulating, most especially working with them later. Every expansion I heard from all 3 speakers was helpful. I LOVED IT! THANK YOU!!” – MT
