There's more to astrology than "Hey baby, what's your sign?"
"Many people equate astrology with the 12 zodiac signs, but those are just the tip of the astrological iceberg," says Donna Woodwell, astrologer at Four Moons Astrology and creator of the new internet radio show Dead Astrologers Society.
"Astrology's roots go back more than 3,000 years. It's woven into the fabric of science, literature, religion and philosophy of cultures around the world. To understand astrology is to understand ourselves."
Dead Astrologers Society is a one-hour internet radio show devoted to exploring the different ways astrology has developed through history and across cultures. "We'll tell the stories of astrologers from ancient to modern times. If you like documentary shows that explore the lessor-known side of history, you'll love the Dead Astrologers Society," says Woodwell.
In the premier episode, a round table of astrologers and scholars will explore the question "What is astrology?"
"Astrology says there's a meaningful correlation between what happens in the cosmos and what happens on the earth," says Enid Newberg, president of Kepler College, an online school of astrology. "For centuries, astrology has been used for everything from forecasting the future of dynasties to individual self-development."
"Clients come to astrologers today with real life challenges, from wanting to find a fulfilling career to choosing an auspicious day to get married," Canadian astrologer and intuitive Lesley Francis says. "Astrology is a flexible language that allows us to find harmony between the symbolism of the sky with life's everyday concerns."
The Dead Astrologers Society premieres April 25, 2013, at 7 pm Eastern on the ParaMania Radio Network.
ParaMania Radio was founded in 2011 by Jenny Stewart and David Erickson. "We wanted a place that offered diversity in a positive way for anyone who seeks knowledge of metaphysical topics," says Stewart. "Our motto has always been 'Shining the light on the Paranormal' and we're pleased to see our vision made manifest."
