Align to your Natural Essence
African Medicine Wheel Astrology is made up of three parts:
The African animals embody the ancient wisdom imbued in the soil which birthed humanity. This wisdom is encoded in their bones. It flows through their blood. It lives and breathes in every cell of their being. The animals are our Allies, offering us their priceless wisdom about survival, harmony, relationship, synchronicity, alignment, power, strength and balance.
The Medicine Wheel
The medicine wheel teachings of the indigenous people of the Americas provide a road-map for us to follow in pursuit of these same qualities. The “Good Red Road” is paved with their wisdom and knowledge. Walking along this path leads us to a life of humility, peace, acceptance, tolerance, respect, compassion, goodwill and benevolence.
AMWA was created from marrying the ancient wisdom of Africa and the Americas into an astrological form. The Allies of AMWA act like astrological bodies, bringing awareness to our natural qualities and gifts. These are the essential ingredients we need to apply in our lives if we are going live in alignment and harmony with Grandmother Earth and her children. Most of these qualities lay dormant, waiting to be awakened into our awareness.
AMWA is intended to open our minds and heal our hearts, as it guides us out of the maze of ignorance, confusion and separation. It teaches us to heighten our awareness, expand our imagination, find greater self-expression and develop the tools needed to create a life of beauty. This ancient wisdom is within us. To experience life in this way is to awaken to the truth and knowledge that the African Medicine Wheel Astrology is founded upon.
AMWA is configured in a unique circular pattern called a Birth Constellation. As with other forms of astrology, the configuration of our Birth Constellation is determined by our birth date.
This constellation is made up of 21 spheres revolving around us like the planets around the sun. They house the secrets of the primary characteristics needed to become a balanced human. Each sphere holds a piece of the sacred code, unlocking the mysteries of our naturalness and our potential.
Within each sphere resides an Ally whose purpose is to help us realize we possess all the keys to unlocking the code and shining in the world with our unique natural brilliance. Most of these assets are undeveloped and unknown to us.
When we connect to an Ally, we meet a personal adviser providing us with insight, guidance and direction in every part of our lives. They are continually communicating, coaching and teaching us how to wake up, sift through what’s true and not true about us and take responsibility for our lives.
Delving into the knowledge and wisdom of AMWA brings us face to face with the truth of who we really are, unlocking our inner wisdom and following our life’s purpose.
To experience an AMWA reading is to take a journey into one’s natural self. It opens our eyes to see ourselves in our wholeness, beyond what we believe about ourselves.
A reading helps to expel our negative beliefs, low self-esteem and unworthiness, replacing it with the truth and knowledge about our unique natural brilliance.
During a recorded 90-minute reading, you will travel through each sphere of your Birth Constellation. At each sphere, you will meet an Ally who will share its wisdom and teach you about your unique gifts and how to apply them.
Throughout the reading, the Allies will empower you to find solutions, clear blockages and step into your true calling in life. They will show you how to improve creativity, relationships, intimacy, vocation, free will, health and how to live with greater awareness.
Choosing to have a reading every year around your birthday is an effective way to integrate what you’ve gained from the past year and set clear intentions for the upcoming year.

To train in AMWA, is to immerse yourself in the ancient wisdom of our ancestors and the natural worlds of Grandmother Earth.
Many people who have experienced the power and beauty of AMWA feel called to learn more about it. They either want to integrate the knowledge and wisdom of AMWA more deeply into their lives or they want to learn how to facilitate readings for others.
Regardless of the destination, this journey requires an open mind with a solid commitment to follow through.
The AMWA training program comprises a minimum of 60 sessions totalling approximately 100 hours. These sessions include teaching, training and practical application.
This training programme is not meant for dabblers or curious spectators. Each prospective trainee will be interviewed before they will be accepted into the program.
