Past Meeting February 17

Topic :     New Moon Before Birth Chart
Speaker:   Franciscus C. Cisco Huijbregts

Our esteemed guest offered his views on what to look for in the New Moon Before Birth chart.  This chart shows what the group that is born in that New Moon Cycle is here to do.   It's a useful technique for when you don’t have an accurate birth time, or when someone asks "What am I here for?".

Cisco started using this tool after looking at the New and Full Moons for many years and wondering how this show's up in people's lives.  It seemed to show one of the inner drives of life.

It's easy to find the time for the NMB4b in any ephemeris or most astrology programs, just cast the chart for the location of birth, and away you go!  Cisco says:  "Fun stuff - try it out on yourself."

Cisco is an Aquarian with enough Leo Rising to entertain even the dullest skeptic. A Vietnam Vet, born in Holland, raised in Australia – Cisco has long been a student of the physical, sociological and esoteric sciences.

He studied physics and chemistry in college before being drafted by the US Army.  There he trained scout dogs and worked as a photographer.  After the service, he studied psychology and anthropology, earning his BS degree.  Among his many accomplishments is his work on the the Apollo 11 lunar lander. 

Cisco then took up astrology and attended classes at the Carroll Righter Foundation in Hollywood.   He began teaching there a few years later, and currently instructs the advanced students.  Cisco has lectured internationally, and has been on radio and TV.  He currently hosts the “Aquarian Astrology” series for Time-Warner Cable in Santa Clarita and Ventura.  See:
