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.

A Moment of Great Change with Marilyn DuMont

Saturn-Jupiter-Pluto

When Pluto, Saturn, and Jupiter encounter each other in 2020 AD, it will be a moment of Great Change, when transformation meets and changes the time and timing of the planet.  In the mid-1200’s the world was waking to Kings, and Popes, Crusades, and marauding groups who were traveling the Silk Road and claiming power to lands and ideas that were to change the sleeping world. It was an awakening of the New World coming alive.  As well, it was the beginning of the time of the Black Plague, climate (mini-Ice Age) change and exploration to new lands. This was the early dawning of the Age of Enlightenment (1690’s through the early 1800’s).  These planets were transiting in Scorpio in the middle of the 13th century.  800 years ago the push to open the world to unique and sleeping unconscious ideas and powers set the stage of the 2020 return of these three Planets.  Now, these planets are finding each other in Capricorn, representing a time of change of structures that sets motion equivalent to the time of Babylon, 1894 BCE, when almost 4,000 years ago Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter met in Capricorn.  Babylon, the seat of Civilization, was a time when Codes and Law were written that are still stand today.  Babylon’s 15 minutes (100 years) of fame have had a lasting effect on the planet to today.  This is the time that is setting the structures that will affect the next 4,000 years.  The unique aspect of this coming conjunction is that, because of retrogrades; it has an influence in current time that lasts for about 18 months.  The other times mentioned above were fleeting moments where the planets passed each other in time with no retrograde to bring them back for review.  We can bet that this 18-month journey will be changed like no other time.  Hold on to your hats!

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.

Our panelists will be speaking with us live at MAAS / The Rene Goodale Learning Center.

ABOUT THE PANEL DISCUSSION

Are you ready for Uranus in Taurus? How will the planet of innovation and radical progress impact money and the whole financial environment? What will the impact be on technology? How about weather, earth changes and the environment? As a historical comparison, Uranus was last in Taurus from 1935 to 1942.

For the past 7 years Uranus, the planet of revolutionary change, has been in the fiery, pioneering, forward moving “me-first” sign of Aries. How can we prepare for the shift into solid and traditional Taurus, where Uranus isn’t comfortable? Uranus is the energy of change and revolution, while Taurus holds on to the time-tested and resists change. What will this push-pull energy bring?

Uranus fully enters Taurus on March 7, 2019, and will travel exclusively through the sign of the Bull for the following 7 years, until April 25, 2026. This shift from Aries to Taurus is an enormous change of energy and will impact our finances, our society, our culture, our politics, our environment, and each of us personally in myriad ways.

Come prepared with your questions, comments, and insights. This is an audience participation panel discussion.

Fran will cover how Uranus in Taurus relates to money, finances, and the market.

Wade Hyde
Wade will cover the history of Uranus in Taurus and its recurring themes.

Kathryn Silverton

ABOUT ASTROLOGY AS A SPIRITUAL PRACTICE

Coming into relationship with the cosmos through the art and discipline of astrology is a life-long practice. Astrology opens up realms of knowledge to its practitioners that fundamentally challenge dominant perceptions of a disenchanted universe, awakening us to deeper participation in the spiritual meaning permeating the cosmos. Becca’s lecture will bring transpersonal psychology and participatory theory into dialogue to show how astrology can be lived as a daily practice with profound relational and psychospiritual implications.

Monthly Meeting – Marie O’Neill on the Lunar Nodal Return

Members attend free. Non-Members attend for $15.

All of us are aware that in life there are numerous cycles such as the cycle of birth and death, work cycle, pregnancy cycle, growth cycle, and more…

This is a part of the rhythm of the Universe that all of us participate in. We can choose to work consciously with this rhythm – hopefully lessening the trauma we encounter; or we can choose to remain unconscious – swimming upstream of this rhythm, causing ourselves to remain stuck in yet another cycle of ‘perpetual trauma and numbness’. The choice is ours. So, you say “What does this have to do with the Moon’s Nodes?”

The Lunar Nodes point directly to our Karmic inheritance from prior lives’ which has ripened. And, since the entire astrology chart is our karma – the nodes take on special importance as a road map to our healing process and the Evolutionary intention of our Soul. There is a distinct rhythm inherent in each person’s nodal cycle by age – which can be used as a gauge, alerting us to where we are in the healing process of our karmic wounds. Our focus this evening  is on the 19 year cycle by age – of the transiting lunar nodes. Each nodal return and its opposition has a distinct resonance therefore; we will pay particular attention to tone of each cycle through 3 nodal returns – age 19 through 57. In addition, we will discuss what happens if a planet is conjunct one of the nodes.

Hope to see you there!

The Moon's North and South Nodes are karmic and evolutionary symbols in every person's birth chart. They are derived from the points where the Moon's path around Earth crosses the ecliptic (the belt through which the Sun and planets appear to travel from our perspective on Earth).
