Bringing the stars...down to Earth

Practical Metaphysics: Transiting Lunar Nodes Entering Virgo/Pisces @ Joyce Beers Community Center (between Panera and Aladdin's)
Oct 9 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

virgo_piscesWith Guest Speaker: Diane Ronngren

Lewis Carroll aptly says: "If you don't know where you are going, any road will take you there."   

At times our lives are filled with a never-ending list of things to get done: work, chores, people, activities. We are stressed and struggling to fit everything into our over-filled waking hours. Yet, we are metaphysical and spiritual beings! Understanding Lunar Node cycles brings opportunities to consciously learn from and respond to the practical and spiritual rhythms of our lives, to create rich memories and relations. This presentation will explore the possibilities presented by the upcoming transit of the Lunar Nodes through the Virgo/Pisces axis in our charts, and bring greater clarity to the roads each of us is traveling.

This presentation will explore what the transiting Lunar Nodes in Virgo and Pisces have to reveal about your life’s journey, and your current path and how we can incorporate the practical aspects of living our daily lives into our experience as metaphysical and curious spiritual beings. Our Virgo cusp, and the houses with Virgo in them show a lot about the way you deal with the practical stuff of everyday living--the way you go about being of service in your world. Our Pisces cusp, and the houses with Pisces in them offer insight into the shimmering, constantly flickering images of possible future outcomes for every possible vision you have for your life..

Using Aspects, with Kelly O’Tillery @ Joyce Beers Community Center (between Panera and Aladdin's)
Nov 13 @ 7:30 am – 10:00 pm

Most astrologers have a preferred group of aspects they use religiously, others they pull out and use from time to time. Still more they may have familiarity with but choose not to use for a variety of reasons. Choosing which aspects to use on a regular basis and why, which orbs to use, and finding your comfort zone is an evolving process as one gains knowledge and experience in both the art and science of astrology and chart interpretation.

During this lecture we will explore the seven most common aspects, plus a few more not as commonly used. We will also focus on interpreting aspects formed from transiting planets to natal planets, natal to natal, and significant points in the chart.
