Homage to Edwin Charles Steinbrecher

Edwin Charles Steinbrecher

Born on April 4, 1930 in Chicago, with Sun in Aries, Moon in Gemini and Ascendant in Sagittarius (1.3.9), died on January 26, 2002. 

Steinbrecher was a major reference for my studies on experiential astrology and the work with the spirit guide. 

After researches in Jungian analysis, tarot, metaphysics and the arts, Steinbrecher developed the technique of the Inner Guide Meditation, which he described in his precious book The Inner Guide Meditation

For Steinbrecher each of us has a personal Inner Guide who is here to help us learn who we are and realize our greatest potential. In his astrological researches he realised that the description of the Inner Guide can be accurately depicted using the 9th house as the ascendant for the Guide himself. 

He is the founder of D.O.M.E., his Inner Guide Meditation centre, which stands for the Latin phrase “Dei Omnes Munda Edunt” (All the Gods/Goddesses bring forth the worlds.) 

He was a most passionate collector of astrological data, especially as regards Alien characters, which is a term he devised. 

He was a great teacher on the work with shadows and projections:

“As long as unconscious projection is taking place, everyone in your outer world is literally some part of yourself functioning as the perceived ego of the other - all are actors in the movie you are starring in, taking their positive and negative roles to fit your particular movie script. Your current ego (what you presently consider yourself to be) acts as a membrane between the forces flowing out of you onto your world and the forces flowing back onto and into you from the other projecting entities in your personal reality. Until you can experience how your projecting energies are affecting others, you will never understand how their projections are affecting you in turn”.[i]
