class description

Join us for an interactive and engaging introduction into the vast and complex world of astrology. We will look at ancient myths that inform the psychic functions of the planets, the signs, the Zodiac, and what they represent in our inner world. We will also explore the symbolic nature of astrology, which will help us gain insight into the profound meaning of the human experience in relation to the planets. This workshop is intended for those interested in de-mystifying the basic foundation of the ancient art of astrology. It also seeks to introduce the participants to the concepts of “The Healer and The Dreamer: Astrology for a new Age”, a workshop series presented in instalments over the next few years at Fireweed Farm and School.     

Martin brings a lifetime of astrological and mystical studies to his third visit at Fireweed Farm and School. His passion and strong foundation in the work of Psychologist Carl Gustav Jung gives him a unique perspective and insight into the relation between Astrology, Alchemy, Dream Work and Myth. Through his workshops, lectures and readings he seeks to provide clarity into in these complex and challenging times. He travels extensively throughout BC and Canada to share what Jung called “The Spirit of the Age". 

I am so impressed with the way Martin so brilliantly synthesizes the works of C.G. Jung and presents it in such an accessible and pertinent way. If you have tried to read Jung’s writing you will know this is by no means a simple task! Martin is engaging, intuitive, and I swear he is tapped into a powerful source of wisdom. His message is so needed on the earth in these times of chaos and transformation.

about your instructor


Martin Comtois studies in astrology began 30 years ago led by a need to understand the intricacies of human fate. Living in an Ashram for ten years had him already familiar with the wisdom of the East and its commitments to self realization. Stepping into an astrological practice 8 years ago made a necessity out of the passion he has developed for the work of Carl G. Jung, the eminent doctor and proponent of analytical psychology. He now combines astrology, dream analysis and psychology in his readings and workshops. Martin has an innate ability, using stories and myths, of making complex concepts easy to understand.
