2:00-3:15 pm: Astrology and the Creole Soul: A Transgression of Cultural Bounds Regarding As-

trological Differentiation and Treatment of Psyche. In this presentation, we will explore the astrological assessment of the soul. Tools for distinguishing between diseases of the soul and diseases of the body are demonstrated along with concepts for remedial intervention based in part on the teachings of Paracelsus. Several traditions have particular methods for assessing the nature of the soul, extending from Babylonia up through the Hellenistic period and into the later European circles, but the Vedic astrologers also have instrumental methods that are quick and decisive. Then of course, the contemporary notions of evolutionary astrology have commentary about the soul, which is worth exploring.
