Rainer Maria Rilke & the Poetry of Relationship


with Hadley Fitzgerald

With his Letters to a Young Poet, Rainer Maria Rilke may have unwittingly written one of our first self-help books. It grew out of a profound relationship with someone he’d never met. Rilke was a person of many relationships as he wrestled throughout his life with the issues of solitude and melancholy vs. intimacy and connection. Using synastry, natal, and composite charts, this webinar will explore his connections with Lou Andreas-Salomé, Auguste Rodin, and Franz Kappus. All three were the poet’s soul mates in completely different ways that were integral to his ultimate yearning: connection with The Divine.

Many of us have experienced a feeling, a resonance with certain poets, writers, and artists who feel more like soulful guardians than the families we’ve known all our lives. Nearly 100 years after his death, Rilke’s dilemmas continue to mirror our own, and an exploration of these charts can help give visible life to the invisible in all of us.
