Meeting May 16th 2013

Speaker: James Schultz

Topic: The Power of Aspects
 


Coco's Restaurant   
18355 Ventura Blvd, Tarzana (near Reseda Blvd)
6:00-7:00 pm - Social Gathering
7:00 pm - Speaker
Members: $3 Visitors: $5

Aspects are an integral part of astrology and chart interpretation.  At this meeting, you will learn new techniques to assist you in analyzing aspects, where their power comes from, and how to assess them.  What about applying and separating, double-applying and double-separating aspects, and how to distinguish between them Jim will talk about the speed of the planets, and retrograde planets.  We will look at how the planet's movement affects the aspect. 

The Sun and Moon may always be direct, but does that mean that all transiting Moon aspects carry the same energy?  Jim will look at the difference between a slow-Moon applying aspect, a fast-Moon applying aspect, and separating Moon aspects.  What about aspects that don’t materialize?  Jim will show you how to spot these differences and how to evaluate planetary movements as well as the science behind them.

While emphasis will be on transiting aspects to a chart, the techniques can also be applied to the aspects in any chart.   There will be time to look at the charts of anyone in attendance who is interested to see how to apply these techniques to their chart.

Jim Schultz is a member of and Certified Astrological Professional of ISAR, and also a member of NCGR, AFA and OPA.  He is one of the current co-organizers of the Santa Monica Astrology Meetup Group which includes almost 300 members.  He previously spoke at NCGR on the 12th house and the Dance of Transiting Saturn and the Progressed Moon.  He is also a Dowser, Voyager Oracle consultant, and Personal Cartographer.

Everybody is asked to come as close to 6:00 PM as possible, as we must vacate the room by 9:30 PM.
