Carolyn Kane Max
Music and Astrology
Music and astrology have always been mystically linked. What if the most archetypal or spiritually primordial link has to do with some part of our being searching to hear or feel the original sound or signature of vibration we experienced at birth?

Since ancient times astrology has been viewed by some as a science of celestial sound influencing all of creation. This celestial sound is the electromagnetic energy or vibrational frequency emitted by the heavenly bodies as they move. Spiritual astrology teaches us that at the precise moment of our birth, our souls are imprinted with a vibrational frequency or signature reflecting the picture of the heavens. This picture of the heavens, rich in the creative potential of the moment, represents our birthchart. Our birthchart is our gift from the universe, mapping out our potential in an organized, personally customized fashion, for the most joyous and fulfilling life. It can serve as a symbolic connection and reminder of the infinite mystery of creation and our part in this wonderful symphony of spiritual unfoldment.

Could it be on some level our personal vibratory signature, or our birthchart, is the most obvious and mysterious clue leading us to feel we are part of something so incredibly grand and perhaps musical in nature? Musical in that everything in the universe vibrates and radiates some sort of sound, audible or inaudible.

Music and astrology have always been mystically linked. What if the most archetypal or spiritually primordial link has to do with that part of our being searching to hear or feel that original sound or signature of vibration at birth? Are we looking to be aligned with the 'music' of our birth? Is it possible we are searching for the ultimate feeling of connection and oneness, and in some way the literal music of today helps us to feel that connection? These are some rather large questions.

Carolyn's intention for this talk is to present the metaphysical themes common to both music and astrology. Main topics will include: the astrological birthchart, choosing music specific to our own astrological themes or cycles, meditation for tuning into the music of the spheres, Pythagoras, the monochord and the role of music in the ancient mystery schools. If there is time, we will also look at the birthcharts of Beethoven and Chopin and listen to music expressive of and colored by their personal astrological cycles.

Carolyn Kane Max has been an astrologer since the mid-1980s. She utilized her background in psychology and metaphysics to assist others in understanding the phycho-spiritual dimensions of the birthchart. In 1992 she took a sabbatical from astrology to finish raising her three children and study music. During those ten years she pursued an intensive study of piano and musical theory. Her professional intention is to continue to explore the metaphysical themes common to music and astrology and find ways to creatively integrate these two systems for healing and personal growth. She also teaches adult piano and music theory.

Donations can be books, tapes or CDs, candles, jewelry, crystals, art or some wonderful item from your home that no longer speaks to your soul but might be perfect for someone else. Gift certificates for your services and items suitable for an altar also make great donations. (We can print the actual gift certificate for you if you like, but please email information to us in order to do so.) Your donations are tax deductible and you will receive a receipt for your records.

Donated items should be of "gift quality and condition" and should be of portable size. About the only furniture type items we can accept would be massage tables or chairs.
To arrange for your donation, please call one of the people from the list below (please call to arrange a date and time for dropoff):
Whether you donate items or not, please come to the October 2 meeting and bid on some of the donated goods and services. When you shop our auction you get your choice of bargain after bargain, as most items and services go for much less than their true value. Plus you get the added benefit of helping SFF continue to provide the kind of high quality metaphysical programs that you've come to expect! The top bidder pays for the item or certificate and takes it home after the meeting.
