ARIES INGRESS EDITION (DEADLINE MARCH 12th)
As astrologers, we all stand on the shoulders of those who came before us. For this next issue of the AFAN Quarterly, we would like to explore the history of astrology; the connections between astrology, mythology and archetypes, and the varied cultural approaches to our relationship with the stars. We would like to consider the many schools of astrology and how modern practices of this craft are still deeply informed by their lineage. Our objective is to illuminate the great pantheon of astrology from across the globe and across the ages.
In addition to inspiration based on our theme, we would love articles considering current astrological topics, such as:
Aries Ingress Chart
US Pluto Return
Eclipse season reports
Lessons from 2021 Saturn/Uranus activity
Astrological profiles (biography)
If you’re an astrologer who has expertise in a specific category, such as herbalism, marketing, client issues, marketing, or tech, we would be pleased to offer your knowledge as a recurring column.
We’re also looking for on the scene reporting from conferences, as well as social media and Patreon content roundups.
