SATURN: TIME, HERITAGE AND SUBSTANCE
The ancient science of astrology, founded on the correlation between celestial movements and human experience, recognises the universe as an indivisible whole in which all parts are interconnected. Mirroring this perception of the unity of life, modern physics has revealed the web of relationship underlying everything in existence. Despite the inevitable backlash as old paradigms expire, we are now entering an age where scientific explanations and models of the cosmos are more in accord with ancient astrological principles. In such a climate, astrology has emerged from relative obscurity to become once again a serious study offering a greater understanding of our true nature as inhabitants of a living cosmos imbued with sacred mysteries.
Melanie Reinhart was born in Zimbabwe, where the night skies inspired her vocation of astrology more than fifty years ago. She holds a B.A. in Music and Drama, and is an award-winning diploma-holder of the Faculty of Astrological Studies; in 2009 she became one of their patrons. In 2004, she received the Charles Harvey Award, given by the Astrological Association of Great Britain, ‘for exceptional service to astrology’. She has been a professional astrologer since 1975; her rich background experience in many psychological and spiritual disciplines draws a worldwide clientele. Melanie has taught for some of the world’s leading astrology schools including the Faculty of Astrological Studies, the London School of Astrology, the Centre for Psychological Astrology and Astro*Synthesis. She has also offered lectures and workshops at many local and international venues, and runs her own programme, based mostly in London.
