Sam Reynolds on Self-Knowledge, Skepticism and the Sky
June 24, 2019
Oh boy do I have a show for you today… I’m actually a bit nervous about airing this one, purely because it’s quite revealing about my current belief system and if you haven’t heard me chat about this stuff before, and you happen to be particularly skeptical of such things, then… I don’t blame you if you want to stop listening.
But on the off chance that you’re an open-minded creative introvert who is willing to leave prejudices at the door in the quest for self knowledge and on a grander scale, a deeper understanding of life itself, then you might find this episode both useful and entertaining.
Anyway, that’s my warning. Today’s guest is Sam Reynolds, and I don’t want to spoil any surprises about the topic of our conversation today so I’m just going to get straight into the interview. Enjoy. We cover:
How Sam has learned to embrace his introversion
How he went from trying to disprove astrology to being a full-time astrologer
Why astrology doesn’t need to be classified as a science
What the Five Love Languages are
How your Myers-Briggs type relates to Five Love Languages
How Myers-Briggs types relate to the classical temperaments
Should astrology be self-diagnostic?
How all these different tests and models can be useful for self-knowledge
How learning anything often begins with black and white thinking
Why astrology’s latest Renaissance might come to a stop
