Chart Interpretation (Neptune*)
Facilitated by Linda Byrd
The Reserves at the Galleria Clubhouse
501 Gibson Drive, Roseville, CA
$5- NCGR/SAA Members
$10 – Nonmembers
Our mundane or non-personal chart this month is the chart of our organization, NCGR-Sacramento Area Astrologers. We will focus on the “rebirthday” chart, the chart for the moment we rechartered this organization with NCGR on March 21, 2011 at 11:22 AM. (Thanks, again, to Linda Kaye for finding us this perfect electional time! And to our treasurer and personal mail carrier, Larry Landis, for posting it at the exact moment.) For those who wish to compare it to the original chart of NCGR- Sacramento, the first incarnation of our group, see NCGR-Sacramento Original Chart.
Our personal chart will be member Carolyn Relei’s. More information in our emailed newsletter.
IMPORTANT! Chart Interpretation Guidelines. Thank you for becoming familiar with the attached Guidelines for Chart Interpretation Meetings. It is extremely important, especially when looking at personal charts in a group, that we create an atmosphere of safety and non-judgment in helping others learn more about their astrological map. Another key concept is that the owner of the chart is the ultimate authority on what resonates to him or her. These concepts will “go without saying” for many of us, but we’re a group open to the public and individuals vary in their sensitivity to these issues. Thank you for reading the guidelines and following them.
Linda Byrd has been studying Astrology since the mid-80s and has incorporated it into her consulting practice for the past 16 years, both for businesses and personal growth. As a “Certified Dream Coach” – a life coach for the soul – Astrology provides a shortcut, an invaluable map, to discover purpose and hidden sabotaging beliefs. She was with the Aspire Foundation for 10 years, an experiential workshop series based on Astrology, has studied with John Ruskell, Tom Lescher, Maurice Fernandez, and is part of Steven Forrest’s Apprenticeship program. She’s attended the UAC, NORWAC, NCGR, ISAR conferences. She loves astrology and is the current VP of our chapter.
About Chart Interpretation Meetings: Mastery of chart reading skills is where the rubber hits the road, transferring theory to practice in astrology. The Leadership Team felt the addition of this type of meeting in 2012 will serve many purposes:
- Sharpen our skills on what’s important in a chart reading
- Increase our chart synthesis skills
- Increase confidence in our interpretations
- Enjoy the support of others at all ends of the learning spectrum on chart reading in an environment of non-judgment and encouragement
- Get live practice or be the live recipient of pooled astrological knowledge
Here’s how it works: Each month, we’ll read two charts–a mundane chart and a personal one. Examples of mundane are any event or personality in the news, charts of cities or countries, etc. Personal chart readings will be limited to people on the NCGR-SAA mailing list. We will limit it to one reading a year per person unless there are unused slots. E-mail Joyce if you would like to propose a mundane topic or have your chart read in the group during any of these meetings in 2012: Feb. 26, June 24, Oct. 28, and Dec. 16. Personal reading slots already are filled, except December. Get your names in early to be on the waiting list, if we do a second personal reading at any of the chart interpretation meetings, or if the first individual scheduled cancels.
Other notes: If there are no mundane suggestions in a given month, we may do two personal chart interpretations. We may also substitute a special guest for one or more of these Chart Interpretation meetings, if the opportunity presents itself.
* In 2012, all meetings will have a planetary theme. Chart readings will focus on this planet and will encompass as many other aspects of the chart as we have time to interpret.
