Trends for the Year 2019: Which Decision Now?, with Misty Kuceris, Saturday, March 16, 2019

The Year 2019 appears to be a preparation for the year 2020…but is it really? The energy for the year actually started around November 6, 2018 when a cluster of astrological energies all hit within a two-day span. The end result of that situation was do we move forward with changes in our lives or do we resort to holding on to the past. What is the decision? As the Moon’s Nodal Axis, Jupiter, and Uranus change signs there are paradigm shifts occurring in the year 2019 that will have a definite impact in our lives. Find out what you can expect for the year 2019 and how it will affect your life.

Blending Modern and Traditional Astrologies with Ichrak Dahou, Saturday, April 20, 2019

Most of us come into the world of astrology through an understanding that if someone has the Sun in Taurus, they are likely to be nature-loving and steady (if a bit stubborn). Or, if someone has Venus in Aquarius they may be a bit cool and detached in love.

Over the past 20 years astrologers have translated ancient texts enabling us to develop a deeper understanding of how previous centuries differed in their interpretations from the modern psychological approach utilized today.

In this lecture, Ichrak Dahou contrasts the main features of modern astrology with those of traditional astrology (astrology prior to the 17th century). She will show you how to blend both forms in your natal chart delineation. She plans on using your charts as examples, although time constraints will limit the number of charts she can use. If you’re interested, please email your birth data to no later than Friday, April 19, 2019.

Developing Leadership Potential with John Marani, Saturday, May 18, 2019

Research by Michel and Francoise Gauquelin showed that planets placed in certain locations in your natal chart, known as the Gauquelin sectors, could predispose an individual to potential career paths.

John discusses how your Sun plays a role in your leadership development and introduces you to the basic Gauquelin research. Join us for this fascinating lecture.
