Experiencing the Zodiac

The workshop in November on Experiencing the Planets went well and we did a lot of exploring and talking about the quality of the movements and the experiences they gave us. It was such a pleasure to work with such interested people. Now that we have explored the moving heavenly bodies I thought the time was right to explore the static ones - the constellations of the Zodiac.

The stars and planets have given direction and guidance to humanity from time immemorial - there is evidence that the stone monuments from over 5000 years ago were aligned with the solstices and stars were used to navigate by long before compasses and naval charts were invented. The division of the Zodiac goes back to Babylonian time and it consists of 12 star constellations, which all lie in the path of the Sun, the moon and the visible planets. Western astrology today dates back to the Greek astrologer and astronomer Ptolemy in the 2nd Century AD.

In eurythmy we work with gestures for each of the signs and the sounds connected to them and during this workshop we will explore these gestures and sounds as well as the qualities of the different crosses within the zodiac.

Eurythmy can be done by anyone regardless of experience with movement and level of fitness. All you need to bring is yourself!
