Writer, Artist, Astrologer Extraordinaire
MICHAEL R. MEYER
has more than 40 years experience in the field of metaphysics. During the late-60s and early-70s, Michael was recognized by Dane Rudhyar, Marc Edmund Jones, and Israel Regardie as an astrological and metaphysical prodigy. He is a direct linear descendant of H. P. Blavatsky. A world citizen, Michael has lived in New York City, Berkeley, Palo Alto, Kathmandu, Amsterdam and West Hollywood.
Since the 1960s, Michael has worked hard at living-up to his reputation as the enfant terrible
of astrology, always challenging established authority and outmoded mindsets. Along the way, he has hung with and talked astrology and metaphysics with everyone from Jimi Hendrix to Terence McKenna to physicist Fritjof Capra; from Allen Ginsberg to Beat artist Michael Bowen to iconic Stevie Nicks.
As an "astrologer's astrologer," Michael R. Meyer has helped countless astrologers refine their art and better help their clients. As a consultant and teacher, he has developed and taught highly effective techniques capable of penetrating quickly to the core issues at hand. Michael is also the creator of CyberWorld Khaldea and the designer and developer of KhaldeaTechnology
, which includes Khaldea2001
, the KhaldeaEphemeris
and the KhaldeaCalendar
A principal associate of Dane Rudhyar, Michael is the publisher and editor of the Lost Writings of Dane Rudhyar
Humanistic, Core-Issue Astrology
MICHAEL R. MEYER
is author of the astrological bestseller A Handbook for the Humanistic Astrologer
, one of the most influential and widely read books on serious astrology published during the 20th century. A Handbook
introduced astrology to a new generation of educated seekers turning to astrology not to know "what will happen and how it can be avoided if it's unpleasant" but to better understand their essential characteristics and to discover their innate potential and life purpose. Readers first exposed to serious astrology through this volume figure largely among today's leading astrologers and astrological writers.
In his practice, Mr. Meyer focuses on showing clients the fundamental principles of astrology at work. He guides them in a highly effective, collaborative reading in which the client experiences astrology directly and learns self-reliance instead of being told what to do. Countless collaborative sessions support his view that anyone can quickly learn the core principles of astrology and how to use them to effectively read their own chart and improve their life and relationships.
Such a conviction has always been at the foundation of Michael's work and writing. His A Handbook
intentionally avoided the usual cookbook format, and the extensive reliance on memorized fragments such an approach requires, in favor of exploring astrology's core principles. In it and in his other works, such as LUNATION PLANNING - Nature's Own Time Management Tool
, and The Astrology of Relationship
, he demonstrates his unmatched ability to make astrology accessible to everyone.
Now — as things come full circle on the astrological scene after several years of ancient revivalism and over-hyped promotion of "powerful predictive techniques" — a younger generation is once again being attracted to astrology as a gateway to gaining self-understanding, while older generations are returning to humanistic values. Michael R. Meyer is at the forefront of this movement, and his provocative and uncompromising 1996 booklet, Humanistic Astrology Revisited
, turned the tide back toward humanistic values. Michael's renown has always reached far beyond any local scene, and he has supporters and students worldwide. His work appears on the worldwide web and he can be found at his website, CyberWorld Khaldea
Michael lives in Berkeley, California, where he is often seen in local cafes and bookshops. Michael still visits the Himalayan Republic of Nepal, where he is active in the art and music scene, and engages in social activism.
