Sacramento, We Have Take-Off!

Like a shooting star, the collective enthusiasm of over 20 local astrologers and astrology students launched Sacramento Area Astrologers (SAA) on Oct. 17. SAA’s first meeting at Planet Earth Rising in Folsom was facilitated by Joyce Mason, who jokingly calls herself the CEO (Catalyst, Enthusiast, and Organizer). The creation of this group of amazing astro-colleagues went from idea to reality in less than a month.

“I just answered a tap on the shoulder from Spirit,” she said. The meeting minutes are available for those who join the SAA e-mail list.

Joyce said later about the first meeting, “The desire for astrological community has been strong and underground for years since Cheshire Rose Books in Fair Oaks closed in the early 2000s and with it, our local chapter of the National Council of Geocosmic Research (NCGR). Anything that has been underground surfaces stronger and more ready for action.”

And here we are. One thing agreed upon at the meeting was to start this blog and create a hub concept, a central location where information can be accessed about astrology classes, events, and meetings in the greater Sacramento region.

If you have an astrological event, please contact Joyce (info in sidebar) to be included in this blog.

One of the ironies was that the first meeting of SAA coincided with the 43rd anniversary of the opening of the musical Hair: The American Tribal Love Rock Musical. Hair made astrology and “the dawning of the Age of Aquarius” household words. See The Chart of Hair – Why We Should Care for more on how Hair relates to our times and tribe.

Meanwhile, if what we’re doing sounds exciting to you, please join our mailing list and come to a meeting!
