About Reverie Astrology
Reverie Astrology is a consulting practice and archetypal astrology practice, formally founded in May of 2015. Its offerings range from birth chart and synastry readings to blog posts, long-form articles and the Planetary Portraits series. It is the fruit of a decade's study in jungian psychology and multiple astrological schools of thought, starting with humanistic and psychological astrology and reaching back through ancient Hellenistic techniques.
The word 'reverie' — like a daydream — holds for me a yearning joy yet melancholia. Such daydream's nightside evokes one of the core participatory magics of astrology... that images drawn in the sky millennia ago bear meaningful connection to movements of psyche. Earthly patterns mirrored by planetary alignments with the signs and the lights within their namesake constellations. We are stardust, living meanings drawn in sky, the oceanic known-in-part.
Hello! My name is Alexander Baker. I'm a writer, astrologer and vinyasa yoga teacher (ryt 200) from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Across ten years of astrological immersion, I've been privileged to give readings for several hundred clients, friends and family members, additionally examining thousands of cultural figures' natal charts. It is my purpose to help you better know yourself, and achieve self-mastery, through the means of astrological wisdom.
I operate my practice out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. You can find the occasional feature from me on Badwitch.es — as well as RealitySandwich, with whom I published from 2014 until 2019 when the webzine was acquired and conceptually demolished by Delic.
What has my past held? I studied playwriting at Pittsburgh Public Theater in 2006. From 2013 to 2016, I studied astrology under Acyuta-Bhava Dasa at the Nightlight Astrology School graduating from Nightlight 7 years 1 and 2.
In 2010, I was a founding organizer of Evolver Pittsburgh, part of global non-profit initiatives The Evolver Network (now Bloom Network) and the Evolver Social Movement. During Evolver Pittsburgh's active years, I collaborated on a number of parties and panels featuring incisive speakers like Charles Eisenstein, Carolyn Elliott and Dennis McKenna. The themes of these events ranged from skill-sharing, sustainability and grassroots activism to responsibility surrounding entheogen use in context of indigenous traditions.
What else? Music, loving, reading, writing, aesthetics, cue sports, saunas and asanas. We are all wounded healers and learning teachers. Blessings to you along your path!
