Postcolonial Astrology w— Alice Sparkly Kat

Guest conversation today with Alice Sparkly Kat.  Ace approaches astrology as an intersectional + political practice, and they want to widen our star thinking so we can build new relationships with astrology, one another + ourselves. Their new book Postcolonial Astrology, serves as a history and toolkit, decoding the planets from a postcolonial perspective, and it's now available for purchase.  We discuss —* how Western astrology is not universal * intersecting postcolonial thoughts + critical race theory with astrology * the tension between imagining post-colonialism and creating a false utopia* Saturn + power dynamics* magic in our mundane tasks + experiences* Queer fluidity as its own yearning * the kinds of stories and epiphanies that show up in sessions with others* how we mythologize gender* the idea of Asia + the beginning of the industrial complexLINKS / If you enjoyed the episode, check out —Episode on last week's Full Moon in AquariusEpisode w/ Diana Rose HarperEpisode w/ Michael J MorrisMore about our guest —Alice Sparkly Kat's websiteAce's IG + Twitter handle @alicesparklykatPostcolonial Astrology, book by Alice Sparkly KatFree Resources —The Moon in your Natal Chart — free classHow to Interpret Transits in your Natal Chart — free video + graph on the Houses!FREE prompts for July's astrologyView our working home—body podcast Reading List Mentioned in the Episode —Ghosts of Darwin, book by Banu SubramaniamStay Connected —Subscribe to the podcast on Apple + SpotifyMary Grace's websiteSupport the show (
