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.

Astrology Transit Support Group with Michelle Gregg

Solar-System-MAAS

In this group, we bring together Astrology and Community to explore our unique life maps and our current astrological weather, known as transits. “Transits are how we grow, transform, and evolve. They are life in motion.” This monthly group offers a great way to better understand yourself and others through exploring the current astrological transits from personal and societal perspectives and is a wonderful way to connect with the natural cycles of life. Learn about transits, explore your own transits, and give and receive support from others in the astrological community.

Transit Support Group meets the 4th Thursday of every month, 7-9:30 PM (with the exception of the months of November and December.)

The cost is $20 for members and non-members.

Beginners through advanced astrologers are welcome and encouraged!

This is a great way to meet other like-minded astrology lovers, to socialize, share stories, and learn more about astrology in a friendly, open, and supportive environment.

Please email Michelle Gregg at astrology@michellegregg.com no later than 48 hours prior to the meeting with your birth info: birth date, birth time, and birth place (city, state/province, country.)

What are transits?
“A transit occurs whenever a planet, moving in its orbit during your lifetime, forms an aspect (a geometric connection) to a planet, the Sun Moon, or any of the house cusps in your natal horoscope. Also whenever a planet passes through the part of the Zodiac occupied by a house in your natal chart, we say that the planet is transiting the house.”  ~Rob Hand

“When a currently orbiting planet makes contact with any of your birth chart’s planets or points, that orbiting planet is making a “transit” to your birth chart and thus to a particular piece of your psyche. When this transit occurs the energy of the orbiting planet connects with the energy of your natal planet or point, and a synergy is created between them. You are then required to respond to this newly created synergy in some way. The way in which you respond is up to you – you can do it very poorly, or very well, or somewhere in-between. This is why it’s important to know what transits you’re having and understand the potentials that lie in their combinations – once you become conscious of the energies that are operating in your life you can make the best possible decisions. You can elevate your consciousness around the areas of your psyche that are being impacted. Transits are how we grow, transform, and evolve. They are life in motion.” ~Michelle Gregg

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.

  • You may attend remotely via GoToMeeting, this is also free for MAAS members. Simply email info@atlantaastrology.com no later than June 17 to be sent a link.
  • Non-members may also attend remotely via GoToMeeting for $18. Please pay through PayPal no later than September 17 to be sent a link.

Becca and Matthew’s lecture will be followed on Saturday, September 22, by a there hour virtual workshop that will engage the audience in a few deep time and inner space meditations with the aim of integrating the scientific, artistic, and religious dimensions of astrological practice explored in their Thursday evening presentation.  There will also be ample time for continued dialogue on these themes.

Time: 12pm-3pm EST (11am–2pm CST, 10am-1pm MST, 9am-12pm PST)

Every person is his or her own unique energy system. Each of us is an energetic, evolving, transforming microcosm of the macrocosm that is the Cosmos. It is Astrology that provides us a profound look into that Cosmos, and into ourselves.

In this exciting new “foundations in astrology” course we’ll discover the underlying principles of a thousand-of-years-old language from a modern perspective, and why this language is so relevant and important to us today. We’ll learn about the sky, the map that is the birthchart, and how to “read” it. We’ll be looking at many birthcharts during the course as examples, including those of the members of the class.

The context will be psychological (primarily Jungian), mythological, spiritual, and evolutionary (karmic), all from the perspective of life as energy, with the birthchart (or horoscope, meaning “time map”) as the tool that maps that energy.

The Course is hugely informative, eye-opening, visually rich, fun and lively! Come join us!
