In episode 121 of the podcast, astrologer Gemini Brett joins the show to talk about why it is important for astrologers to become familiar with the astronomy underlying astrology and what problems can arise if they don’t.
In the first half of the show, we discuss the separation between astronomy and astrology and some different cases where understanding the astronomy underlying astrological map placements can help improve or enhance the understanding of astrology.
In the second half of the show we talk about some extreme cases where a lack of training in astronomy can manifest in problematic ways in the astrological community, with an emphasis on the flat earth conspiracy theory.
This leads to some broader discussions of relativism in the astrological community where the line between faith and science and the relevance of certification or better standardization in our field can be drawn.
