Steven Forrest explains mutual reception from an evolutionary perspective. Mutual reception occurs when two planets are in the signs of each other's rulership. For example, in the same birth chart, Saturn in Taurus is in mutual reception with Venus in Capricorn. This video includes the example of Venus in Virgo and Mercury in Libra.
In May of 2011, Tony Howard got Steven Forrest and UK-based astrologer Mark Jones into a room to film a rare candid conversation between two astrologers. Steven and Mark start out talking about some of the technical differences between their approaches, and then the conversation naturally shifts towards more common ground, discussing the counseling dynamic in a consultation, and the popular subject of fate vs. free will.
Steven shares how to take the first steps towards analyzing a birth chart using his time-tested evolutionary astrology techniques. Steven points out how important it is to look not only at the primal triad - Sun, Moon, and Ascendant - but also at the chart-behind-the-chart which we find through the doorway of the lunar nodes. Combine the two and we learn to see a person not only from a deep psychological framework, but also a karmic one.
There is a lot of data to wrangle in the birth chart, and Steven teaches us how to sort through what's most important.

In this interview filmed at the 2012 UAC astrology conference, Steven joins fellow astrologers ISAR President Gisele Terry and David Cochrane for a discussion about inter-astrological appreciation. For too many years astrologers have been fragmented on their isolated islands of technique, tradition, style etc. This discussion aims to show that if we drop our defenses and focus on building bridges between the various disciplines within our field, we'll actually become better astrologers with sharp critical thinking skills, which will improve the entire field.
