Biography of Traditional Astrologer Felipe Oliveira

Felipe Oliveira, Traditional Astrologer and Medical Astrology Teacher

In my early twenties, my desire to find freedom from psychological suffering led me to join and spend eighteen years in a spiritual 4th Way school in the Gurdjieff-Ouspenky tradition.

That gave me access to an objective psychological system with links to Traditional Astrology, and the opportunity to observe the calcification process of the ego as it happened over those years. It also reinforced my interest in the healing of the body and mind, and rekindled my search for tools to uncover truths about our world and about what we often call our ‘selves’, or to be more precise, our ‘personalities’.

In 2005, I was perusing the shelves of an esoteric bookstore when a book titled The Real Astrology by our esteemed master John Frawley fell from a shelf onto my left foot.

That was the first reminder that in astrology, as in life, pleasure and pain will never go alone and tend to match each other in scope and intensity. Later on, that was confirmed when I discovered that I have the Arabic Part of Spirit and the Arabic Part of Captivity in perfect opposition in my birth chart. Think of a Sun-Saturn opposition on steroids.

The astrological journey went on with John Frawley informing me, around 2010, that he was not taking on new students. I never asked him, but I bet he did a horary and saw that I would be a pain in his ass as a student. So, he sent me to one of his best graduates to get schooled. I promptly I did.

Circumstances turned out in a way that my teacher disappeared without a word or trace and eventually, John graciously stepped in and I received the Horary Craftsman diploma from him.

Around 2012 I also began studying Medical Astrology with Oscar Hofman, (a graduate of John Frawley), after he did a medical astrology reading for me explaining the ins and outs of my pains. A lightbulb got turned on! The rest is history, as the knowledge and experience I am sharing with you now, I trust, is evidence of.

I think Traditional astrology is fun. Astrological symbolism is nothing short of poetic as I see in chart after chart in my daily practice.

And the fact that it can help people become more conscious and experience less unnecessary suffering is a blessing and a miracle.

Besides being an astrologer I am a musician, composer, and producer. My main instrument is the drum set, which is medicine for a choleric and, along with my passion for African music, is healthily apt for a natal Sun-Mars conjunction in an Earth sign.

I occasionally write poetry. I do Tarot of Marseilles readings; often to supplement horary readings when horary hits some limitation. I am a graphic and web designer and computer programmer. 

Also, having uncovered the root of psychological suffering, I share my journey from it to the source of Peace of Spirit.

The astute reader may find the potential for some of the aforementioned things in my birth chart. Here it is.
