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

Pay for your Wise Women Salon Weekend below:


 

SCHEDULE

Friday, September 21st: 7 PM the Salon begins with a Celebration of the Fall Equinox.

Saturday, September 22nd: 10 am – 5 pm: We’ll journey through our body, soul, and spirit to discover their unique form of wisdom. A light lunch will be served or you can bring a bag lunch.

Sunday, September 23rd: 2 PM – 7 PM: We’ll journey to answer the pressing questions we each have of our life’s path and close with another ceremony that we all create.

 

ABOUT THE WISE WOMEN SALON

The Return of the Goddess over the past 50 years has been a slow and arduous journey, for it is the journey of the Soul wanting to be recognized and lived in the world. The Goddess brings us in contact with our Soul as well as the Soul of Mother Earth – the Anima Mundi or World Soul.

The Goddess has returned to us now because She is the one who can birth a New Age, which is always the task of the Divine Feminine. It is our connection to Soul that helps us find our unique purpose, a purpose that aligns with Mother’s Earth’s needs: how we live in this beautiful world has to be reconsidered and renewed. We can no longer treat the Earth as a commodity to be pillaged and destroyed for profit if we want the human race to continue to evolve. We have to discover how we humans fit into the picture of Life!

The Goddess wants us to re-member and re-new our conscious connection with all of Earth’s children, for we are part of Her biosphere and a source of consciousness for Her. But first we have to connect to our own Soul. And so She comes back to help us evolve to a higher level of consciousness.

While there are many goddesses from ancient cultures, energies that are tied to the land and sea, there is an image of the Divine Feminine that calls to us at this changing of the ages. This image is an image of Wisdom and it combines all the powers of the ancient goddesses: A Woman, clothed with the Sun, standing on the Moon, crowned with Stars, giving birth to the savior.

While men have a role to play as defenders and protectors, it is women who are being called upon to access our greatest gift – Wisdom! For in all cultures, Wisdom is a Lady. After millennia of being silenced and rejected, Lady Wisdom wants to manifest in women who are her daughters.

Our Wise Women Salon will be a call to Wisdom’s Daughters to remember how to access our own wisdom.

Beginning Friday evening with a Fall Equinox ritual, we’ll journey on Saturday through our body, soul, and spirit to discover their unique form of wisdom. On Sunday, we’ll journey to answer the pressing questions we each have of our life’s path and close with another ceremony that we all create.

To prepare for this class, you can read Cathy Pagano’s book, Wisdom’s Daughters: How Women Can Change the World available at Amazon.com. Bring the book to be signed!

Dress comfortably to move and meditate. Bring a journal to record your journeys. And bring your excitement and joy at the chance to deepen your connection to your Soul.

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.

Tarot Cards


 

INTRODUCTION TO TAROT

By tuning into their symbolism, you can become more aware of unseen influences, patterns of behavior, challenges and powerful energies which can enable you to make better choices in your life.”

We will cover the Major and Minor Arcana and how the cards tie in with astrological principles. Whether you want to learn tarot for yourself or to read the cards for others, this workshop is a great place to begin!

To register, call or email Karen Branch at 404-931-6356 or uraniak@bellsouth.net. Please bring your tarot cards to the workshop. (Includes Light Lunch)

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.
