About Evolutionary Astrology

about-evolutionary-astrologyEvolutionary Astrology, or Astrology of the Evolution of Consciousness, is a spiritual approach to the practice of astrology and analysis of birth charts, founded on the intention to identify the soul’s evolutionary journey through the natal astrology chart.

The universe is understood to be an intelligent design with divine order and purpose. Astrology and planetary cycles accurately reflect these universal truths and intentions.

Astrology has been practiced since the dawn of time through all cultures of the world as soon as humans realized that the cycles of the Sun and Moon defined our seasons. We are all synchronized with this cosmic clock, with each planet serving as a hand of this clock.

While there are many uses to astrology, Evolutionary Astrology particularly focuses on our soul journey and the evolution of consciousness. Once we understand this broader spiritual perspective on our life, we can address every mundane issue or question.

Understanding our soul’s evolutionary intention helps us make better choices, align with higher purposes, and lead better, healthier, more meaningful lives. A reading from an evolutionary perspective can provide better clarity and direction in every aspect of our lives.

Evolutionary Astrology is one of the most profound and sophisticated approaches to chart interpretation, making the use of star knowledge a sacred initiation and experience.

Some of the core principles include:

  • We are all born to evolve our consciousness, to grow towards a greater understanding of the divine Truth. The more we know the Truth, the freer we are from falsehood, failure, and suffering.
  • Nothing happens randomly in life; whether through successes or adversity, there is a higher reason for what occurs in our lives. Every life experience is a lesson that brings us closer to the higher Truth. Evolutionary Astrology helps identify these evolutionary reasons and lessons.
  • The process of evolution extends through numerous lifetimes. Most of us had past lives which impact the circumstances of the current incarnation. We can identify the themes of these past lives in the natal chart, and in such a way, have a broader perspective on why things unfold a certain way in our present time. We usually do not remember our past lives, but nonetheless, these memories are in our unconscious as part of our soul experience, and do affect the direction of our current life. The chart helps us see what we bring from past lives, the gifts, accomplishments, traumas, or mindsets. Current life circumstances can be a direct result of these past life experiences.
  • When we look at a person’s astrology chart, we not only identify patterns or behaviors, but trace the reasons, the WHY, things occur in a certain way, sometimes to even understand why a person was born in particular family dynamic or why they faced difficult challenges early on. When we better understand why, we have better chances to make positive changes and overcome negative outcomes in the future.
  • We are fated to our chart and cannot change it, but we have the free will to make a better use of our chart and access a greater potential within it. People born at the same time and place, sharing the same chart, may end up leading different lives – while they may face similar challenges, they have the free-will to respond differently to these challenges.
  • When analyzing charts from the perspective of the Evolution of Consciousness, there is no good or bad planetary placement. No chart is doomed to suffering or guaranteed success—everything is part of the natural order of life and has its purpose. We all have lessons to learn and evolutionary challenges. Those who learn their lessons and evolve their consciousness have greater chances to experience longer term wellness, and the other way around.
  • Planetary cycles represent a particular influence, or a developmental climate. What we do under these planetary influences is our responsibility. Our successes and failures are ours to own, not the planets’ favors or curses.

A reading from the perspective of the Evolution of Consciousness can bring light on all domains of our lives, from the more existential to the most practical concerns – We can address questions about:

  • The purpose of this life.
  • The reason for life to unfold a certain way.
  • The lessons to learn in order to overcome obstacles.
  • Relationship potential and dynamics – compatibility with romantic or business partners. The evolutionary reasons we meet our partner.
  • Vocational potential and direction.
  • Family and parenting: understanding and guiding our children, care-taking for our parents.
  • Mental and physical well-being – health sensitivities and preventive approaches.
  • Looking ahead: how to make the best use of the cycles to come. An overview of the months and couple of years to come.
  • Timing for important events: signing contracts, weddings, moves, medical procedures, or any important process.

Evolutionary Astrology was inspired by the work of astrologer Dane Rudhyar, and in the early eighties, was established by astrologers Jeffrey Green and Steven Forrest. Astrologer Ray Merriman first coined the term in his book by the same name, but eventually pursued a career as a financial astrologer. Evolutionary Astrology is now practiced widely in the world; however, different schools of practice have evolved in the course of time—while the same philosophy and spiritual perspective are shared by all practitioners, methods of interpretation vary from practitioner to practitioner.

You are who you are for good reasons, here on this planet to learn and contribute. Your chart tells the Truth about your soul journey through time and space. Learning about it can in itself change your life forever, for the better.

About Maurice

about-maurice-fernandezI have been practicing astrology for more than twenty-five years, with a passion for interpreting planetary cycles as a way to help others live fulfilling and healthy lives.

I was born in the heart of Africa, and moved to Israel as a teenager where I was first exposed to astrology in a professional way. I subsequently studied Evolutionary Astrology with Jeffrey Green in the course of the nineties. It was a natural language for me, and it provided a profound understanding about the nature of existence.

To provide a more spiritual experience to the study of astrology, I often combine it with the practice of Kundalini Yoga in a retreat-style immersion into nature. Moreover, I’m keenly interested in further developing inter-species communication and bridge consciousness between humans, animals, vegetation, and minerals. I have worked for the past 10 years with the White Lions of Timbavati for this purpose.

This holistic approach to the study of star knowledge helps with the original intention to align our lives on earth with the greater cycles of the planets and universal Truth.

Since moving to the United States in 2003, I have developed a worldwide network as an author, teacher, counselor, and conference organizer, notably the celebrated River of Stars Astrology Conference (Hawaii 2011-2015).

I’m currently serving as the president of OPA – The Organization for Professional Astrology – (2014 – Present) with the aim to support astrology and astrologers. OPA is an immensely creative organization with programs for all levels of expertise, with a particular focus on enhancing astrology in the world and maintaining its integrity.

I currently reside in Arizona, enjoying the high desert following 7 years living in the water world of Hawaii.
