Tchenka Sunderland

Tchenka writes every year for our Moon Diary and Moon Calendar. We have known her for over twenty five years and she is a dear personal friend and inspiration in our lives. She has been the constant ‘Standing Stone of Saturnian Stability’ in Astrocal’s journey over the past 20 years.

“Thirty five years I’ve had my head in the stars! After years of consulting, teaching, broadcasting and writing, my current work involves in-depth study of nature’s seasonal processes, examining the physical properties of ruling planets, their metals and herbs, and looking more closely at the season’s traditional customs. A “perennial philosophy” has emerged that suggests that those characteristics endowed by our astrological inheritance are our own personal experience and expression of natural forces that operate all the time in this world Below. The birth chart then becomes a description of our fundamental “leaden” Nature and it becomes our life task to apply our consciousness towards manifesting its highest potential here on the earth – to be the gold!”
