Sunday September 11 – Rick Levine (WA)
The Astrologer’s Role as an Agent of Change
Gone are the innocent days of imagined objectivity. Quantum theory has clearly demonstrated that the observer impacts the observed and alters the trajectory simply by his or her presence. We must accept the fact that we are not inert bystanders watching the past collide with the future. We are participants in the lives of our clients and in the unfolding social/political drama of these times. What do we do with this knowledge? What are the moral and ethical implications of being cosmically informed? Do we strive for objectivity as detached observers? Or do we consciously or unconsciously bend the future to conform with our personal, social, cultural, political, economic, religious, and gender biases? These are confusing times and we’ll untangle some of the relevant issues and how they impact our work as astrologers.

Horary is a predictive form of astrology with clear cut rules necessary for passing accurate judgment on the question asked.

Sunday March 5 – Angela Tiki (Greece)
The Venus Retrograde Cycle
The goddess of beauty and harmony symbolizes our quest for satisfaction, for unity and completion. Aristophanes (Plato’s symposium) describes that humans are weak because they were made half by the Gods, so their need is to find their other half - their soulmate, in order be complete. Aphrodite is the archetype of mother & fertility, the spouse and the lover, the ideal beauty both in body and spirit. Ironically, even though Venus’s cycle is synonymous to “Aesthetic Perfection”, the Golden Ratio, Venus – the peace searcher - in Greek Mythology was the source of many troubles and disputes During her retrograde phase, it’s the time to look inside us, connect with our heart, appreciate the meaningful things, face the ugliness and transmute it into something precious. It’s time to bring purity and balance in our soul.

The Cracked Mirror: The Astrology of Narcissism

There’s not just one expression of the disorder, nor is there one clear astrological signature. We’ll explore the entire range from typical narcissistic tendencies to classic diagnosable types, including astrological chart examples, dealing with narcissistic clients and pathways to healing.
