Charlie Cross

Charlie is a consulting astrologer, teacher, and writer. Charlie has been studying astrology intensely since an initiatory wound opened Charlie up to the spiritual world 7 years ago, just in time to catch the magic of 2012. Constantly doing readings, teaching and creating with astrology, Charlie has studied Evolutionary Astrology with Adam Sommer and Ari Moshe, but he has always been an autodidact. These days he is drawn to Tropical Vedic Astrology, the Fixed Stars and Lunar Mansions, Shamanic Astrology and Planetary Magic, as well as medical and financial astrology. In addition to working as an astrologer, Charlie teaches in the Waldorf Movement, where he gets to witness in action the spiritual teachings of Rudolf Steiner, a mystic and progenitor of many spiritual technologies (as well as brilliant astrological thinker). Charlie also facilitates the Moon Language Story Circle, a roving full-moon circle with astrologically-chosen themes. Learn more at astrologyally.org
