Amy Herring: The Astrological Life Cycle

  • Friend's Meeting House 4312 SE Stark St Portland, OR, 97215 United States (map)

Saturday Workshop

Life’s milestones can include things like our first job, getting married, graduating, or having children; yet, some of life’s most pivotal milestones aren’t punctuated by certificates or ceremonies but by planetary cycles. If life were a novel, then the planetary cycles point out major plot points in our story.

Our unique birth charts point the way to developing our individuality, and as the planets move, we develop and change in our own time and pace. Yet, while the timing of key events in our lives may be just as individual as we are, we all experience peak points of planetary energy at the same ages. In this way, the astrological life cycle of human development unfolds. We can see these pivotal times approaching from the moment of birth through the tracking of the planetary cycles.

In this workshop we’ll discuss planetary cycles: what they are, how to recognize their peak points and work with them practically in your life. We’ll walk through example charts and hear from participants that wish to share their real-life stories that unfolded at the time. Come prepared to work with your own chart!

Amy's Bio:

I have been a professional astrologer since 1995. Although self-taught by voraciously reading many great books (my favorites include works by Steven Arroyo, Steven Forrest, Alan Oken—the list goes on) I formalized my study with Steven Forrest, graduating from his Astrology Apprenticeship program with his high, personal recommendation in 2006. My focus is on the psycho-spiritual applications of astrology.

The secondary progressed moon has long been a favorite topic of mine, so I wrote my first book about it: Astrology of the Moon: an Illuminating Journey Through the Signs and Houses, which was published by Llewellyn in 2010. My second book combines a focused and detailed overview of astrology’s components and some of my favorite techniques in approaching the interpretation of a natal chart, titled: Essential Astrology: Everything You Need to Know to Interpret Your Natal Chart, is available in March 2016.

I love teaching and have an ongoing list of students I tutor. I have lectured about astrology at venues such as the Northwest Astrological Conference and Washington State Astrologer's Association, and at various astrological associations in the western United States. You can find me on the web at, and on Facebook at
