Symbol & Sacred: Signs of the Daimon with Geoffrey Cornelius
Saturday 10th July 2021 – 11:00am-12:30pm (UK time) via Zoom: £10
“Each of us has one certain daimon, the Guardian of our life…which helps us to that very task to which the Celestials summoned us when we were born” (Marsilio Ficino)
In this session, Geoffrey Cornelius will explore how the daimon shows itself and guides us through signs, dreams and divinations. We draw on Platonic themes, from Socrates and his daimonion to Plutarch and the vision of Timarchus. We will use some divinatory imagery and insights, but all teaching will be accessible for those without technical knowledge of divinatory methods. Sometimes the daimon conceals, and for astrologers this gives us a fresh take on the mysteries of radicality and horary strictures.
Joint session between the Centre for Myth, Cosmology and the Sacred, and the Company of Astrologers
