The Claregate Method
I was introduced to the Claregate Method of Astrological propositioning in August 1976 when Dr Baker used his special technique in interpreting my horoscope during a private consultation. I had requested this interview hoping to get meaning and a purposeful direction for my life.
The interpretation was not for the purpose of being told outright what my Soul’s Purpose was, which is rarely advisable as it’s an inner revelatory process, but to understand some of the blockages and personality issues preventing me from discovering guidelines for myself.
I was astounded by what I was told and could only assimilate some of the experience initially. It was just from the fact that the various images he received from propositioning different relevant aspects from my chart and his interpretation which could be written down and parsed so accurately, which made the information irrefutable and acceptable.
Some of the information I could take on board at the time, some wasn’t clearly understood until years later. But I had put my feet on the Path and my journey was moving in the direction of my Purpose which I was to continue the rest of my life. Because I was relatively dharma free at the time and wanted this more than anything, and was prepared to take the necessary steps, even if it meant walking away from everything familiar and everyone in my life, I up rooted, began my journey never looking back. It wasn’t easy at times but always inwardly fulfilling and continues to this day with the same equal and sustainable passion.
I was part of Dr Baker’s original Claregate team in those early years that experimented and practiced positing aspects in the diary and recording and assimilating feedback to questions put.
After an initial period of development he began to include the New Astrology in his lecture tours around Britain at first, and then globally, with the purpose of establishing a lei line like network. It was in Australia during weekend seminars on Astrology and the Claregate Method in which some students were having amazing results that he commented that this new archetype has now been established and it was important for people to continue practicing to embed it into the global network.
The infrastructure has been established and to my mind it’s the most validated method of confirming higher influences, responses, impressions and intuitions that give insight to one’s Purpose and as he says “while the Claregate Method appears at first to be difficult, it is not, it is just new but very simple.” It’s a very rewarding process.
