Ceres, goddess of agriculture/Chart Interpretation



and Chart Interpretation (5th house*)

Facilitated by Georgia Dempsey

Sunday, July 27, 2014, 1:00-3:30 pm $5- NCGR/SAA Members, $15 – Nonmembers

Lecture Details

We will cover the mythology of the dwarf planet Ceres in depth, to include environmentalism, issues of loss and abandonment, nurturing and life cycles. Ceres packs a powerful psychological punch where it falls in our charts, so we’ll be touching upon its impacts, especially as it relates to contacts with other planets and house transits. Anyone who is interested in finding the strength and resiliency of their anima will enjoy learning about about this empowering planet for it teaches us how to overcome loss and find grace, despite difficulties.

Georgia Dempsey: I am new to the astrology scene but am hooked! Started studying 5 years ago as a lark to survive a difficult work situation. In time, I started to see priceless things playing out between charts and that was a huge epiphany. As a NPS Ranger, you know that we are all connected on a certain level. All it takes is watching energy cycle through nature to come to that conclusion. To see that theme played out again through the heavens was an awakening and a reaffirmation of the thought that we are all truly in this thing together. Astrology has thus become a part of spiritual path.

Chart Interpretation

Following the presentation on Ceres, we’ll be looking at the chart of one of our members. Join our mailing list to receive more chart details.

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 2014 (Feb. 23, April 27 July 27, and Nov. 16) 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 us if you would like to have your chart read in the group during a meeting. NOTE: Personal reading slots fill up quickly. 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. ~~~ * In 2014, each meeting will have a featured house for attendee introductions. So, besides your name, you can share (if you like) what planets you have in the house of the month, the sign(s), and anything else of interest in the house. Since we have this valuable tool, it’s a fun way to get to know one another at a deeper level.
