Shadow & Modern Astrology
and Chart Interpretation (Saggitarius*)
Facilitated by Chet Zdrowski
Sunday, Nov. 17, 2013, 1:00-3:30 pm
(This event is rescheduled from May)
$5- NCGR/SAA Members, $15 – Nonmembers
All humans have a portion of their life energy split off and stuck in patterns of resistance and projection. Jung termed this energy the shadow. These patterns are generally invisible to us but can “grab the steering wheel” and cause us pain and confusion.
Astrology offers a powerful lens for understanding both human nature and the shadow. Combining the power of astrology with some of the tools of modern psychology, it is possible to reclaim this energy and use it for joyful living.
Various approaches from both astrology and psychology will be explored in this presentation. The simple but powerful 3-2-1 shadow process, will be taught as a method to liberate the “gold in the shadow”.
Chet Zdrowski began studying astrology in 1977 with the psychological approach of renowned astrologer Richard Idemon and later the transpersonal astrology of Dane Rudhyar and Steve Arroyo. For the past seven years he has studied in Steven Forrest’s Evolutionary Astrology Apprenticeship program, learning a deep fusion of psychological, transpersonal astrology with ancient metaphysics. Chet combines the depth of his understanding of astrology with a strong desire to help people discover their unique gifts and evolutionary paths.
* In 2013, each meeting will have a featured sign for attendee introductions. So, besides your name, you can share (if you like) what planets you have in the planet of the month, what house it falls in and any major aspects. Since we have this valuable tool, it’s a fun way to get to know one another at a deeper level.
Following the presentation on Shadow & Modern Astrology, we’ll be looking at the chart of one of our members.
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 feels this type of meeting serves 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 chart interpretation meeting in 2013 (Jan. 27, May 19, July 28, and Nov. 17) we’ll read a personal chart. 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 have your chart read in the group during a meeting. NOTE: Personal reading slots are already filled all four dates in 2013. But, submit your names to be on the waiting list in case we do a second personal reading at any of the chart interpretation meetings, or if the first individual scheduled cancels.
Other notes: We may also substitute a special guest for one or more of these Chart Interpretation meetings, if the opportunity presents itself.
