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.

BEGINNERS ASTROLOGY WORKSHOPS – A Formula for Entering the Birthchart- Part 2

Woman-with-zodiac-in-night-sky

You’re studying astrology and you know there are planets, signs and houses – even aspects… but you look at a birth chart and it looks like a wonky Spirograph design. It’s pretty, but you don’t know where to start to understand what it means…

What are the first steps in making it all make sense? How do you discover meaning in all those crazy symbols?

Let us help!

In a series of two Saturday workshops, the first on Nov. 30, and the second on Dec. 7, you’ll learn a BEGINNERS FORMULA that you can use again and again to help you begin to make sense out of all the pretty “gobbledygook” of the birth chart.

Learn how to “enter” a chart with a 1-2-3 method so that you can immediately understand some very powerful personality traits and ways-of-being of the person whose chart you are beginning to decipher.

You’ll be able to use this formula as you continue learning about astrological interpretation, and until you get to the point when you no longer need it!

We’ll be using your charts as examples and study material… come with your birth information: birth date, birth time, and birth place.
(Check your birth certificate for accurate birth time. It makes a difference!)

WHEN: Saturday, November 30 – and – Saturday, December 7, 2019
WHERE: The home of the Metropolitan Atlanta Astrological Society – The Rene Goodale Learning Center: 2054 Harobi Drive, Tucker, GA 30084
TIME: 10 AM to 1 PM Eastern
COST: $35 for each workshop

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
