Mars has been a planet in astrology that has been given a bad rap since the time of Ptolemy.  Why is this?  What was the perception of Mars prior to the ancient Greco-Roman period?  How does Shamanic Astrology fit into it?  During this talk, Erik will inquire into the nature of Mars, how it fits in our modern times and how it represents the masculine principal in our lives.  He will also explore the magical connection between the journey of Mars across the night sky as the red planet visits constellations and signs.

Erik will show that Mars in our charts and lives is much more than just Roman and Grecian War God.  Using Shamanic Astrology, there is a full-spectrum of masculine intentions/expressions with Mars through the signs/archetypes.  His goal is to bring a widened perspective and awareness beyond the judgments placed on this so-called “malefic” planet.


Erik Roth has studied Shamanic Astrology since 2004. He has held classes on Shamanic Astrology in Portland and Tucson as well as presented at local fairs in Oregon and Arizona since 2010.

In 2011, he became certified by Daniel Giamario and the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School and joined the school’s Board of Directors as Secretary. Erik also serves as an active teacher for the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School.

Erik is opening up the coffers to bring more awareness to Mars’ nature through Shamanic Astrology. He recently co-facilitated a teleclass/webinar series on Mars called “Mars and the Sacred Journey” honoring the full synodic cycle on Mars (2014-2016).
