MARCH 18, 2016 – Using the Solar Return to Interpret the Tarot Cards with Rose O’Hara

The Tarot cards can be used in much the same way as The Solar Return Chart which defines a picture of a person’s life in yearly terms. The Return Chart uses the planet’s transits based on the natal birthday. Each house gives a clue to an event that could transpire during the year. The Tarot spread like the Astrology chart can be an inspirational tool for prediction and self-discovery of the unfolding chapters in one’s birthday year. Rose has developed a system of interpretation of the cards based on the astrological wheel that forecasts possible significant occurrences during the solar year.

Rose is the Vice President of the Annapolis NCGR and a former Ancient and Contemporary World History teacher. Rose founded Para-Dimensions Five and Mystic Media Center which focus on disseminating the ancient wisdom through studies in esoteric civilizations, symbolism, Astrology, prophecy, Tarot, healing, meditation, mythology, magic and dreams.

APRIL 15, 2017 – Ceres and the Art of Compromise with Misty Kuceris

The power of Ceres is still one of the best kept secrets in astrology. A corn goddess who seeks her daughter and is willing to destroy the earth until her daughter returns is the most common understanding of Ceres. Yet, this is a person who understands her full power and the need to temper it with compromise in order to win. While you can gain understanding of your relationship with your mother and other women in your life through knowing about Ceres, that is only a small component to what Ceres in your chart represents. The most important component of Ceres is that it indicates how you can use your own power. You can either tap into the destructive energy of Ceres which shows little regard to others, or you can generate compromise which leads to success in your life. Learn how to understand what Ceres represents in your natal chart and how this understanding can take potentially self-destructive actions and turn them into compromises which lead to your success.
