Introductions and Wayfinding
Welcome to the Starry Woods!
I’m your host, Tony-of-the-Woods, and I’ll kick things off by introducing my vision for this creation. This is post number one of hopefully many, wherein I explore several aspects of astrology, as well as philosphy, magic, animism, occultism, spirituality, and weird studies.
outline interesting and effective astrological techniques, demonstrating and practicing delineation and prediction
post astrological forecasts, once I feel up to it
share learning methods for astrology, especially geared to self-study, including charts, infographics, and worksheets
muse on philosophy of various kinds, especially occult philosophy, animism, and Whiteheadean metaphysics
explore bioregionalism, permaculture, and right-relations with our human and other-than-human relations (plants, animals, rivers, spirits, etc)
delve into spirituality, magic, and personal growth
The Deep Study of (mostly) Traditional Astrology
Since I’m currently intensively teaching myself astrology, utilizing many books, podcasts, and other resources, a large chunk of this blog will be dedicated to sharing information and insights as I learn them, distilling down and re-presenting information in a manner that I think would be easier to understand for someone learning solo, like me.
At the same time, I plan on reviewing learning materials, collecting together recommendations for books and mini “syllabi” that others can use, and creating and sharing my own tips and tricks.
Something that I have found helpful as well are detailed interpretations of charts and examples of techniques, and I hope to contribute with some of my own.
A Little About ME
My Sun is in Scorpio, Moon in Aries, Ascendant in Cancer. I run a body care business, tend my permaculture garden-farm mini-homestead, and love studying all the topics of this blog.
I’ve got a degree in linguistics and Germanic languages, so I’m a huge language nerd. I’m into writing fantasy fiction, though I typically just prefer building worlds and creating languages.
I hope you join me on this journey! And, if you’re reading this at any time, and you’re vibing with my direction, feel free to comment on some topics that you’d like to see expanded on and explored and I’ll take note.
