The Ascendant Vol. 2


The Ascendant is the official journal of the Association for Young Astrologers. The Ascendant delivers a curated selection of work that simultaneously showcases what the newer generations of astrologers are doing and serves as an introduction to the myriad forms of astrological practice and research methods. We publish articles that demonstrate the cutting edge of astrological praxis.

The second volume of The Ascendant contains papers that cover the reconstruction of previously unknown traditional material, innovations in the application of astrology, novel perspectives on the philosophical implications of the art, astrological practices in various global geographies, considerations of the new crop of academic studies of astrology, as well as the conversation unfolding in our community about astrology and intersectionality and astrologically inspired art by artists around the world.

Copies of Volume 2 will be shipped to arrive to you on May 22, 2018.

All proceeds from the sale of this journal go directly to AYA.
