Midlife Crisis with Alan Gordon

midlife crisis

The midlife transition is actually a reflection of four major transits of the outer planets.

The first inkling that life is not working the way it used to can be the Neptune square to itself. This can bring about a vague sense that one’s belief systems are changing, and that the “less than conscious underpinnings of how we go about life are no longer secure.

Then in rapid succession, the planets Jupiter, Uranus, and Saturn, all oppose each other in one’s early 40’s, depending on orbital variances.

The Jupiter opposition can be new frontiers, i.e.; “the grass is greener on the other side of the fence”. The Uranus opposition can be more severe, in that it may be a sociological change, that one has no control over, such as a merger or a factory moving to another country, and losing a lifetime job. And the Saturn opposition then reminds of what we have to lose to move forward, whether it is a dysfunctional relationship, a drug abuse habit, or a negative self-image that is holding us back.

My book follows about 35 clients through the stages of mid-life. Each gives an example of whether they were able to successfully negotiate the phases of the transition.

This is one of the most stressful times in life, and an understanding should be foremost in your tool kit of delineation and counseling.

The 2020 US Elections, the Future and Trump’s Chart with Malvin Artley

You may have heard that elections are coming up in Nov 2020 in the US. Donald Trump is pushing hard for reelection and is a shoe-into be the Republican candidate. The Democrats are quickly deciding their candidate, too. What will the election hold for the US? Will Trump be re-elected? Will he even make it that far? And do we have the correct chart for Trump? There is another that has been put forward. In this talk, we will look at the charts of Trump using several techniques and then go on to examine what the elections will mean for the US, regardless of who is elected. The billionaires on both sides of the aisle have already decided who they want for president. Is there a wild card? Was Trump the maverick so many people thought? Astrology tells the tale. Malvin will be speaking to MAAS from his home in Italy.

Esoteric Astrology – An Introduction with Marie O’Neill

 

hqdefault-bicubic

Traditional Western Astrology is personality centered. After a person has evolved to a certain point the traditional chart feels more like the person you were. On the other hand, Esoteric Astrology reveals your Soul or Higher Mind’s intention for this lifetime along with your potential for contributing to the evolution of humanity.

This is accomplished through looking at Esoteric Planetary Rulership of the signs and the Seven Rays. The Seven Rays are the 7 energy streams that enter our solar system from cosmic sources, permeating the planets; which in turn transmits this energy to each of us through the zodiac.

Esoteric Astrology is a system which can be used as a stand-alone system in a reading or used in conjunction with other systems as the icing on the cake, so to speak. This system not only gives each of us the highest goal of our lives it provides the road map to reach it.

The purpose of this talk is to introduce you to the science of Esoteric Astrology – focusing on the esoteric meaning of the signs; their esoteric planetary rulers and the Seven Rays.

Secondary Progressed Solar/Lunar Phases with Pat Lantz

The monthly Solar/Lunar cycle has been observed since the dawn of human existence. Along with the cycles of day and night, and the changing seasons, it provided a repetitive pattern which gave the ancients a sense of predictability in a chaotic world. Pat will provide insight on how with the use of the Secondary Progressed Lunar phase you can define predictable patterns that underlie the changing circumstances of your life. You can calculate your SP Solar/Lunar Phases at Lunarium.

Astrology: Science, Art, Religion? with Becca Tarnas and Matthew Segall

For some, astrology is a science, no less mathematically rigorous and empirically grounded than astronomy. For others, astrology is more of an art, with subjective interpretation and poetic expression playing essential roles. The beliefs and practices of astrology lead still others to view it as a religion or spiritual discipline.

In this presentation, Becca and Matt will engage in a philosophical and practical dialogue about the nature of the astrological discipline, its controversial status in intellectual and popular cultures, and how the language we use to describe it affects our understanding of what astrology can tell us about our world.

Becca and Matthew will be joining us remotely from their home in California.

The meeting is free to MAAS members, $15 for non-members. The door opens at 7:00 PM to allow for conversation and browsing the MAAS astrological library. The lecture begins at 7:30 PM.
