The astrology of the week ahead covered in this episode is Mercury’s station direct in Capricorn and the sun’s annual conjunction with Pluto (also in Capricorn). There’s some weight or meat to the energy this week. While it’s not always fun, Cory invites listeners to use this time to befriend the Pluto process.
During the second part of the show Cory is joined by astrologer Nate Speare for a conversation about all things Saturn. Cory and Nate discuss the Saturnian archetype, Capricorn, Aquarius, somatics, age and elderhood. We also hear more about Nate’s consulting practice, which includes mythopoetics and astro-erotics.
Nate Speare (he/they/firebird) is an astrologer, vocal artist, storyteller, mythologist, and educator based in Brooklyn. Nate began their public astrological journey as Montgomery Taylor’s teaching assistant at the CG Jung Institute of NYC (at the Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism). Nate’s background in avant garde performance, experimental voice work, bodywork & mythopoetics shape their experiential approach to astrology. For years they’ve led therapeutic storytelling circles, in settings ranging from public schools to Rikers Island to the United Nations. Two key threads in their astrological practice include Astro-Erotics- a tool for using the chart to deepen into relationships & sexuality- and Ancestral Patterns in Astrology, a journey into the wounds & gifts of ancestry. They strive to aid everyone who works with them in the journey toward pleasure, beauty, integrity, myth & magic. Nate directs Mythopoetic Astrology, a consulting practice that integrates experiential therapy, astro-drama, body work, sound healing & counseling. Nate is a certified Urban Tantra practitioner, a student of the Wheel of Consent and holds a MFA in Contemporary Performance. Clients have described working with Nate as “working with an artist and magician into a journey of depth, transformation and self-compassion.
