Rich Humbert: Astrological Turning Points @ Joyce Beers Community Center (between Panera and Aladdin's)
Sep 11 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

celestialAll of us go through changes as our lives unfold. One of the strengths of astrology is the ability of its practitioners to identify these changes as the gradual curves created by planetary movements move from one influence into another.  Some are short-lived and periodic like the two to three year pulses from the progressed Moon.  And sometimes changes pile up due to the overlapping cycles of outer planets becoming involved, until a turning point is reach and our lives suddenly and dramatically shift. To the non-astrological world this can be surprising—and, as this presentation will demonstrate—astrologers, too, can be surprised.

Rich will discuss charts of well-known people that illustrate sudden change (besides Uranus) to identify the characteristics of a major turning point so that we’ll be able to predict them as we study the long-term time landscape for our clients.  Our clients need to have the current moment put into perspective and understand if they are entering a period of extreme evolution, in the ebb-tide a year or two before such a change, or on a plateau of relatively steady evolution.

Rich Humbert has an often unique approach to astrology as those who subscribe to his “Celestial Weather” can attest. He’s practiced and taught astrology for over 40 years. Fate brought him employment at the American Federation of Astrologers headquarters in Washington, D.C. in the early 1970's. Their vast library and the steady flow of major astrologers of the day was a priceless learning resource. He was extremely fortunate to study several years with the late Barbara Watters, the foremost political astrologer of that time. Celestial Weather (his program) began in the late 1970's as a weekly radio spot on WHFS-FM in Washington D. C. After moving to Los Angeles in 1995, he resumed active work in astrology and soon began study with Marion March, celebrated author, founder of the UAC conferences and Aquarius Workshops. He continues to lecture, teach and consult with individuals and businesses internationally. Visit his website at
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..
