Hi there, I’m Azur!
I’m an astrologer and astrology student. I consider those to go together by virtue of the nature of astrology, and I love that I’ll never be done learning within this field which has a rich history and never-ending possibilities in terms of resarch.
I’m an alumni of the Hellenistic Astrology Course by Chris Brennan, Bernadette Brady’s Star School, and have studied with a variey of recorded classes by Austin Coppock, Demetra George, Kelly Surtees and others.
I’m passionate about the history of astrology, time-lord techniques, fixed stars in parans, the study of patterns and cycles in natal and mundane astrology, as well as one-on-one counseling, sociology and psychotraumatology. I definitely strive to have a trauma-informed practice, drawing on works by Pete Walker, Bessel Van Der Kolk, bell hooks, among others.
I’m an animist and this informs my work and my approach to astrology. It is by no means required that you take the same approach to work with me, but I think it’s good to know regardless!
I’m hungry for a practice of astrology that reflects the diversity of our world. My approach is infused with my knowledge & interest in disability studies, queer studies and feminist theory, and supporting other marginalised people is in my top priorities.
I hold astrology in high regard as a tool of introspection as well as prediction, and more generally (and perhaps more importantly, for me personally) as a way to connect with the cosmos.
I don’t think determinism is a synonym for being fatalistic, condemning us to inertia. I also don’t think astrology should mean essentialism, depolitisation or a reductive view of the world and its people. In any case, I try to make sure it isn’t the case in my practice. Integrity and strong, transparent ethics are a priority for me. I commit to respecting my clients’ boundaries and making sure, before anything else, that I do no harm.
For more information about my approach, including techniques I use, people who inspire me, etc, see this page.
My purpose with the website is primarily to cater to French-speakers because there are very little resources available in French about ancient traditions of astrology. However, I do write in English sometimes, and I am available for consultations in English.
I’m a member of the Association for Young Astrologers, and always curious and enthusiastic to get to know fellow astrologers.
You can support my work through Patreon if you’re so inclined; there you’ll find more writing on astrology and astrolatry, as well as monthly devotional illustrations.
I use they/them and he/him pronouns.
