All of the planets and other cosmological bodies in our solar system have significant and profound effects on our lives. In traditional astrology, your birth chart—using the locations of the planets, whether they were rising or setting, and how they lined up with the meridians (up and down) at the time of your birth—offers insight through transits and progressions into your life purpose and plans, along with guidance about when and how events might play out in your life. Astrocartography (sometimes referred to as locational or relocation astrology) addresses where: With this technique we can reveal, with great clarity, the countries, states, cities, and neighborhoods where the influence of planetary energies is strong, identifying the places where relationships, career success, home life, spiritual development, education, and other areas of life might work out better (or worse) for us.
Using maps, charts, and a globe, Darrell Steen will describe astrocartography and how it works. Using the charts of several famous and familiar people, he’ll illustrate how it can be applied to our lives; for example:
- Contrasting cult leader Jim Jones with Indian yogi and guru Paramahansa Yogananda
- Comparing Presidents Richard Nixon and George W. Bush
- Examining similarities between television hosts Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey
- Showing that indirect connections are important, too, such as President Bill Clinton’s Venus line (representing relationships) that appears in Hillary Rodham’s hometown of Chicago.
In the second half of his talk, Darrell will demonstrate the technique further with a few volunteers in the audience. If you’re interested in participating, be sure to bring your birth details: location, date, and the accurate birth time.

Darrell describes himself as having a practical and down-to-earth philosophy, and his readings as taking a psychological approach that helps clients see the basic motivating forces in their lives. He had his first horoscope reading when he was 16 years old—reluctantly, at the prodding of a friend—and he was so impressed by the astrologer’s accuracy that he began studying right away. He is fascinated by the perspective that astrology offers, better than anything he found in psychology, religion, or philosophy. He has practiced professionally, full time, for 36 years and serves an international clientele. Since 1982, he has been accredited through the American Federation of Astrologers. In Kansas and elsewhere, Darrell was a frequent guest on numerous radio shows, and then had his own weekly radio show for two years in Wichita. Five years ago he relocated to Angier, NC, to be near his grandchildren. This past June, he was a popular participant at SFF’s annual Psychic & Healing Fair.
Certificates for private sessions with Darrell (with appointments to be scheduled through him later) will be available for sale at the talk, with 20% of the proceeds going to benefit SFF. Each session comes with a one-year follow-up period, during which you’re invited to contact him with further questions as they arise.
