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

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).

Building Dedication: Celebrating Rene Goodale’s Life and Her Contributions to MAAS

Rene Goodale with Children at a Birthday Party

Rene Goodale with Children at a Birthday Party

This is a FREE SPECIAL EVENT.

On Thursday, September 21, 2017, at 7:00 PM “The Harobi House” will be re-christened “The Rene Goodale Learning Center.” A new sign will be placed on the street and a beautiful commemorative clock will be set in the foyer in memory and appreciation of Rene’s many contributions to “The Metropolitan Atlanta Astrological Society.”

For those who may not know, Rene Goodale was the Matriarch of MAAS. Without Rene, there would be no Pyramid (Harobi House). She was our generous benefactor, and was often called upon to firm-up the foundation. Rene donated the beautiful antique furnishings that grace the interior of our astrological home, and she offered her time and energy toward MAAS most abundantly.

Long-time member Karen Branch will be speaking at the Dedication celebration, and one of the original founders of MAAS, David Railey, will be joining us remotely from China to share the history of the building of the MAAS Pyramid. Everyone will be given the opportunity to honor Rene with their remembrances of her. If you’ve ever considered MAAS your astrological home, we hope you’ll plan to attend this homecoming and celebration of our Matriarch.

Please join us in memory and celebration of Rene with food, wine, memories, and community. 

This is a FREE SPECIAL EVENT. 

ABOUT RENE…

“Irene Emery died with grace and peace at her home in Mystic, CT. on March 31st, at the age of 89, after a brief illness. ‘Rene’ was born on July 24th, 1927, in Cincinnati, Ohio. She was the oldest daughter of John Josiah Emery and Irene Gibson Emery. She was the granddaughter of Charles Dana Gibson, the famous illustrator of the ‘Gibson Girl.’ She attended the Foxcroft School. She met the painter Robert Perkins Goodale of Boston MA at the Academie Julian art school in Paris, in 1946. They married and raised four children in Boston and then Cuernavaca, Mexico.

After divorcing, Rene moved to Atlanta, where she developed a passion for astrology. She became a licensed astrologer in 1972. She taught and lectured in her favored area of Cosmobiology, was President of the Metropolitan Atlanta Astrological Society and editor of the Atlanta Astrologer newsletter. She also co-founded and was President of the Atlanta Chapter of NCGR (National Council for Geocosmic Research), an astrological organization dedicated to astrology education and research.

While in Atlanta, at the age of 51, she enrolled at Georgia State University and completed her undergraduate degree, graduating Cum Laude in 1982 with a BA in Philosophy. She lived in Atlanta until 2008, and then moved to Stoneridge in Mystic, CT.

Rene was an elegant, graceful and classy matriarch. She was strong, confident, curious and open-minded. As a young woman, she was an accomplished pianist, a sailor, and a photographer. She valued integrity, honesty, bringing people together, gratitude, curiosity, and good manners. She was generous with her spirit, her time, and her equal interest in everyone she met. She was the consummate cheerleader. She was the family’s great communicator and a beloved, giant figure in all our lives. If there was one constant in her life, it was summering in Maine on 700 Acre Island, Dark Harbor. Many will be surprised at her fierce competitiveness racing the DH ’20.

But we will all remember her inclusive cocktail parties on her deck and the lively dinner parties filled with spirited talk of life’s deep questions, current events, and what everybody was up to in their lives.

She is survived by two brothers, George Post and Ethan Emery and two children, Nathaniel and Kate, both of whom were at her bedside in the final moments. She is also survived by eight grandchildren and one great grandson. She was predeceased by her three sisters, Nancy Magro, Lela Steele and Melissa Lanier, and by two of her children, Irene (Bibi) Perkins and Peter Goodale.

There will be a memorial service and burial at Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, MA at the end of May or in June. In lieu of flowers, please consider a contribution to St. Joseph’s Indian School (saintjosephs@stjo.org), or the charity of your choice.

FUNDAMENTALS & ESSENTIALS OF ASTROLOGY / Term 1
Basic Astrology Course

Term 1 / Planets & Signs

Instructor: Professional Counseling Astrologer, Michelle Gregg
email astrology@michellegregg.com for full Syllabus or questions

12-weeks / July 1 – September 23, 2017
Meets each Saturday, 10am – 1pm, at the Metropolitan Atlanta Astrological Society / Harobi House

This is Term 1 of a 2-term complete beginner’s astrology course. Term 2 will be offered in October 2017 (see below). The completion of both terms completes the Foundation Course.

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, image rich and immersive foundations in astrology class we’ll discover the underlying principles of a thousands-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.

Beginning in Term 1 we’ll explore the planets and signs of the zodiac, and their meanings and interpretations. 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 class will be hugely informative, eye-opening, fun and lively! Come join us!
