FEATURED PLANET: Moon
A June, Moon and Chart Interpretation Afternoon
Our June Sacramento Area Astrologers meeting is a two-fer on the astrological Moon (the Planet
of the Month), followed by a group interpretation of the natal chart of one of our members.
The Moon, Part 2
Apprentices of Astrologer Steven Forrest pick up where they left off last May in sharing their mentor’s wisdom about the Moon. Chet Zdrowski led Part 1. This time, Linda Byrd and Larry Landis share more about the orb that represents our feelings, instincts, moods—and many would say, the sweet side of life. Learn more about yourself by the light of the silvery Moon.
Linda Byrd has been studying Astrology since the mid-80s and has incorporated it into her consulting practice for the past16 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.
Larry Landis: Not surprisingly, with both Venus and Mercury in Gemini, Larry’s interest in astrology began around 1990 when he somehow ran across Linda Goodman’s Love Signs. Noticing a huge correlation between all his relationships and the book’s descriptions, his curiosity was peaked. He was self taught for many years, accumulating many shelves of astrology texts, but began more formal training in 2001 with Tom Lescher and Steven Forrest. Larry has achieved Level II status in Steven Forrest’s Astrology Apprenticeship Program.
Join us in the second half with a group interpretation of one of our member’s charts. Larry Landis and Linda Byrd facilitate. Sharpen your chart interpretation skills and share your insights. With this month’s emphasis on the Moon, we’ll be placing a little more focus on the Moon and it’s Nodes. The presenters will share from the viewpoint of Steven Forrest’s “Evolutionary Astrology”, however, all perspectives are welcome in the conversation about the chart of our featured member.
Our personal chart will be one of our member’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.
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 one or two charts–a mundane chart and/or 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 the last remaining chart interpretation meeting in 2012 on October 28. The October personal reading slot if filled, and as of now, we plan to use the charts of the Presidential candidates for our mundane selections. However, we have a waiting list in case the first individual cancels or is unavailable for any reason. We are also maintaining a waiting list for future chart interpretation meetings in 2013.
* 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.
