Divining the Moment – Astrology and the I Ching


with Carol Ferris

The I Ching is a Chinese compendium of astute observation of nature’s flow in time. Like astrology, it studies pattern, rhythm and context. Its origins lie in China’s earliest myths of cultural ancestry, and it carries an historical record of commentary by succeeding generations. Classical Chinese Medicine philosophy and practice considers the relationship of the macrocosm of the cosmos to the microcosm of the body in diagnosis and treatment. We’ll look at the Chinese lunar lodges (the xiu) and compare them to western solar zodiac signs; and correlate them to the hexagrams of the I Ching, then apply them to a horoscope.

Phenomenal! 13/10 Stars ✨

Carol Ferris presented this workshop in a clear and approachable format. Her pacing was easy-to-follow and not at all overwhelming (yet not underwhelming; the visual aides are equally clear and understandable; and, the amount of information offers a depth and breadth that truly enhanced my astrological studies. If you are interested in discovering the subtleties, nuances, and intricacies that are interwoven among Astrology and I Ching, I highly recommend this course. This was my first workshop with Ms. Ferris, and I look forward to more in the future. She has a gift in her communicative abilities as an engaging teacher.


This class was superb. Ms. Ferris is an expert in both I Ching and Astrology, two of my favorite topics. Her encyclopedic knowledge of the history of both disciplines and her ability to communicate clearly made for a fascinating class!

A wonderful introduction to the yijing for astrologers by one of the most powerful and unique astrological thinkers around

Carol has a penetrating intellect that is combined so beautifully with irreverence and fun. She is incredibly knowledgeable about Western astrology, but her real uniqueness comes with her reverence for and understanding of the Chinese philosophical and cosmological context. Quality of the audio is excellent, and it’s a logical presentation that will pique your interest. Great reading list provided.
