Between Heaven and Earth – Heliacal Rising and Setting Stars (Christian Koenig)
The ascent of the soul was always a predominant theme of humanity. The Pyramid Texts consider that the soul comes from the stars and returns back to them after death. Astrologically, starphasing mirrors this: some stars become visible after being absent from the sky (heliacal rising), others return to Earth after living with the immortal circumpolar stars (heliacal setting). In this workshop, we will encounter these two special stars that guide you. Everyone has a heliacal rising and setting star; it is a bridge between Heaven and Earth, an important life theme beyond the chart.
