With what is your life in composition?
What relations compose and decompose you?
What processes of composition and decomposition are you a part of?
From my view, astrology is not about decoding unilateral messages from sky gods—and it never has been.
Astrology is a practice of coming into composition with the more-than-human cosmos, co-creating the lives we are living in relations with the planets and stars and other celestial bodies, with temporalities that extend across deep time, with mythologies and technologies and cultural traditions that span thousands of years around the globe, that have survived the rise and fall of empires, and more.
What are the affects and effects of co-creating our lives with/in such relations?
Which is to ask: what does it feel like—and what does it do—to practice astrology, to come into composition with ancient lineages of skywatching and storytelling and meaning-making?
And if not astrology—because I don’t think we all have to practice astrology, there are many paths—what are the affects and effects of the relations with which you are in composition? What does it feel like and what does it do to live your life with/in the relations you have chosen and have not chosen?
We are all always already composed of countless relations both human and more-than-human: social, political, erotic, ecological, ancestral, relations that have made and are making us who we are.
