Alejo López


Alejo López, D.F.Astol.S., was born in Argentina but moved to Europe at the age of 23. Further journeys set him on a quest to find some kind of language that could describe people’s diverse lives and inner worlds. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Performing Arts, another one in Psychology and the Faculty of Astrological Studies Diploma, where he is a current tutor. He has also studied Traditional Astrology at the School of Traditional Astrology, directed by Deborah Houlding. Besides, he is a yoga instructor (RYT200 by Yoga Alliance). He is in the last stages of achieving the MA in Cultural Astronomy and Astrology at the Sophia Centre and the University of Wales Trinity Saint David. He is also in the process of being certified as a Jungian Analyst. And he is one the founders of Stellium Magazine. In the meantime, he has studied myths and observed some other spiritual practices such as shamanism and Kabbalah. He is particularly interested in finding sacred languages and techniques that could help us understand ourselves while being in open dialogue with the Divine. He believes that once you learn astrology, you can never be alone for the planets will always speak and guide you. He loves teaching astrology as well as consultancy work.

Why do I believe in the power of uncertainty?

Liminal beings are ambiguous. They can't easily be categorized as they live at the thresholds, where change happens. I believe I can be considered a liminal creature. I have been to faraway places like New Zealand, Patagonia, Iceland, Japan and Antarctica. As a traveller, I have often experienced life from a foreigner's perspective. In fact, I feel that I do not fully belong anywhere (not even in my home town!). Strangely, I simultaneously hold both a sense of familiarity and alienation to so many different places around the globe. And while I can feel at home everywhere, I have not found a place to settle. I was raised under the catholic faith during primary school but then in high school, I was taken to an institution highly valued for its educative syllabus which was based on the ideals of the enlightenment: science, rationality and secularism. So I grew up in an environment where both logic and intuition were encouraged, both mysticism and reason. Again, liminality was expressed in my upbringing. Liminality has also manifested in my sexuality. Though homosexuality is further accepted, non-heteronormative behaviours are still considered somewhat deviant. Finally, I have held ambiguous roles in my profession as well. In spiritual environments, I would defend the possibilities of reason, while when performing rational tasks, I would hold onto intuition. In conclusion, liminality has been expressed in many areas of my life: my sense of home and belonging, my education and upbringing, my relationship and sexuality and my vocational choices.

Furthermore, I had to go through my own dark night of the soul, getting swallowed by the mud, yet hoping to survive. These moments of crisis have pushed me to liminal stages in which the uncertainty of the result was somewhat intoxicating. Yet, in darkness, I discovered light. In weakness, I found strength. These are the experiences that made me who I am.

That is why I believe in a liminal cosmos, a power that pushes us to a space of uncertainty which may allow us to creatively develop our true and unique sense of self.
