Astrology acts as a mirror, revealing the link between celestial bodies and our earthly lives, speaking the language of the cosmic symphony. It’s more than just foreseeing the future; it’s about understanding the energy patterns that influence our lives. Astrologers play the role of interpreters, guiding us through the celestial weave with deep wisdom and insight.

It’s a profound art form that doesn’t dictate fate but rather illuminates potentialities, providing a map to navigate life’s ebbs and flows. Exceptional astrologers possess an amalgamation of intuition, scholarly depth, and a keen observation of celestial movements. Their dedication to understanding ancient wisdom while integrating modern perspectives distinguishes them.

‘Astrology is a language. If you understand this language, the sky speaks to you.’

– Dane Rudhyar

Skillful astrologers translate this language into meaningful guidance, offering individuals a deeper comprehension of themselves and their life’s journey. They act as cosmic counselors, empowering individuals to embrace their strengths, acknowledge challenges, and harmonize with the cosmic dance of the universe. They are into their art as interpreters, decoding the celestial messages into tangible guidance, guiding individuals through the labyrinth of life’s uncertainties.

Born on November 24, 1947, in Springfield, Massachusetts, Ashman’s journey into the celestial spheres was catalyzed during his academic pursuits at the University of Florida. It was there that he encountered transformative texts, including Dane Rudhyar’s The Astrology of Personality, which sparked an enduring fascination with the cosmic language of Astrology.

His early immersion in the works of influential figures such as Carl Jung and Stephen Arroyo profoundly shaped Ashman’s philosophical approach to Astrology. Inspired by Rudhyar’s emphasis on Astrology as a symbolic language fostering individual freedom and evolutionary growth, Ashman found resonance in Arroyo’s insights on past life astrological themes, igniting a passion to delve deeper into the realms of the zodiac.

Ashman started his astrological journey in the early ’70s, reshaping astrological literature. His debut book, “Astrological Games People Play” (1987), kicked off a prolific writing career. Follow-ups like “RoadMap to Your Future” (1994) and “SignMates” (2000) established his expertise in predictive astrology and relationship dynamics.

After the tragic terrorist attack on the United States in 2001, Ashman’s publisher, Llewelyn, approached him to contribute a chapter to the book Civilization Under Attack: September 11, 2001 & Beyond. “The Psychology of Terrorism” was the title of the chapter he penned for the book. The book was published in November 2001, with Ashman collaborating with fellow astrologers, including the renowned author Robert Hand.

Notably, Ashman’s magnum opus, Sun Signs & Past Lives: Your Soul’s Evolutionary Path (2010), emerged as a transformative exploration into past life patterns correlated with astrological signs. Here, he ingeniously employed ‘decans’ to unveil profound insights into the complex interplay between astrological symbolism and the evolution of the soul.

Beyond his literary endeavors, Ashman’s influence extended into the realm of astrological software, where his innovative “Past Life Chart” redefined how individuals interpreted their past incarnations. The introduction of this groundbreaking software in 2000, showcasing a clockwise house system, revolutionized Astrology’s accessibility and applicability, resonating with seekers across the globe.

Central to Ashman’s approach is his belief that Astrology serves as a pathway to self-discovery and personal evolution. His teachings and writings reflect this vision, guiding individuals on profound introspective journeys to unravel the mysteries of their inner selves through the cosmic tapestry of the zodiac. In 2016, Ashman’s next book, titled How to Survive Mercury Retrograde, was published by Llewellyn. Following the book’s release, Ashman was interviewed by The Telegraph newspaper in London, England. Subsequently, Watkins Mind Body Spirit Magazine, also based in London, invited him to pen an article on Mercury Retrograde, which they later published in the same year.

Ashman’s insights have graced esteemed publications such as The Mountain Astrologer and Dell Horoscope. Through his contributions to these platforms and others like Llewellyn Journal, he shared transformative insights on planetary influences, retrogrades, intercepted signs, and healing karmic imprints associated with sun signs.

Presently residing in Durham, North Carolina, Ashman continues to chart new cosmic territories and empower seekers on their spiritual odyssey. His enduring commitment to expanding the horizons of astrological wisdom persists, with recent publications like Sun Sign Karma: Resolving Past Life Patterns with Astrology (2021) adding to his illustrious repertoire.

All in all, Ashman’s visionary contributions, innovative methodologies, and unwavering dedication to empowering individuals to chart their destinies within the cosmic symphony have solidified his position as a luminary in the cosmos of Astrology.
