Laura Rose DesJardins spoke about "Midpoints, an Astrological tool for Prediction" at our meeting on April 15. Midpoints are an effective yet often overlooked astrological tool. We discussed the historical value of midpoints, as well as their spiritual, psychological and physical manifestations. She showed the timing of midpoint structures and how this system can predict the main events during the course of a year. Laura discussed how each midpoint has a medical implication and how to avoid the shadow side of the energy. This was a very dynamic lecture and Laura used charts from guests in the audience to demonstrate personal timing of critical events in one's life.
