May Meetup


May Meetup


Sunday May 19, 2013 ~ Noonish

The Trine ~ The Eclipses ~ Intercepted Signs

Fee ~ None, Your attendance is all we ask.

Happy Mother’s Day to Everyone’s Mother and to all of You who are Mother’s!

Where would we be without You?


Remember, there are only two types of people in the world, Mother’s

and children of Mother’s.


Thank you to all who came out for the New Moon Solar Eclipse Celebration May 9th at Venice Beach.  It was a lovely evening and a great time was had by all.  We will be uploading some pictures to the Meetup site.

For this Meetup we still have two planets, Saturn and Pluto retrograde.  We have one planet, Uranus in a fire sign (singleton); two planets, Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces in water; three planets, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter in Gemini in air and four planets, Mars and Sun in Taurus, Moon in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn in earth.  There are five planets in mutable, three in fixed and two in cardinal signs.  There are five planets, Mars, Sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter in the 10th house and the other five are spread out giving the chart an overall “splay” pattern.  Emphasis is on career and being recognized for one’s efforts.

For this Meetup, we will start with the trine or 120 degree aspect.  We have a new guest speaker, LeeAnn Lambright.  I have known, studied and practiced astrology with LeeAnn for over 10 years.  She has a great depth of knowledge and an amazing gift for expressing it.  Following LeeAnn, Rachel Lang will talk about eclipses, including the two we just had and the third one coming up on May 24th.  I will then wrap it up with a brief discourse on intercepted signs.  What is an intercepted sign you ask?  If you look at a chart and you see any sign contained entirely within one house, that sign and the sign opposite are considered intercepted.  The farther north from the equator one is born, the more likely it is to have intercepted signs.  If you look at my chart for example, I have Virgo/Pisces intercepted.  So what does that mean?  Come to the meetup and find out.

If you would like to be a speaker or have ideas for future topics, please let Spencer or I know.  In keeping with the current popularity of vampires and zombies, we all like new blood and fresh meet to feast on.

 So, all that said, here is our agenda for this meetup.

             12-12:30        Meet, mingle, eat drink and be merry.  Support the Un Urban


            12:30-12:45  Announcements - Talk around.

            2:??-?:??        Mix and mingle

            3:30-5:30      Class – Trines, Eclipses and Intercepted Signs

For the talk-around we will do the usual “big 3,” Sun, Moon and ascendant signs if you know them.  Don’t worry if you don’t know the answer.  You should before the meetup is over.  Bring your chart if you have one; if not, and you would like one, send me your particulars (date, time and place of birth) ([masked]) and I will be glad to generate it and send it to you.  I will also print one and bring it to the meetup for you.  Just be sure to let me know before 10 am on Sunday, May 19.

If you have other ideas for topics, please let Spencer or I know.  What we don’t know, we shall learn together 

Spencer and I have talked about this and because of the ongoing expense of the fees for the meetup site and costs of copies and such, we are going to add a container for “love donations” to help defray some of the costs.  This is entirely voluntary.  There is no fee or charge for attending this meetup; this is just to help defray some of the costs.


After the meetup, about 3:30pm, I will be conducting a class going into more details on trines, eclipses and intercepted signs in your chart and of course, answering any questions from the meetup and class.  A fee of $10 is requested for this class.


This meetup will be at our usual location, Un Urban Café, 3301 Pico Blvd.  Great little coffee shop with delicious food and excellent drink selections.  Do support the Un Urban if you can by buying a drink and/or something to eat.


If you have any questions, would like to request a chart or just want to chat, e-mail me [masked] or ring me up,[masked]-4417.


We hope to see you all on May 19th for our next meetup. 


     Un Urban Café, 3301 Pico Blvd. 12 Noonish PM

    The material presented was fabulous and I learned a lot. Trouble hearing most of it though and since I sit all week at a desk it was hard to sit for several hours through a lecture on a beautiful day. Great presentations though - well done!

    I really, REALLLLLY wish I could attend, especially b/c I've met LeeAnn who is such a lovely person. :) But I had already scheduled a post-production meeting for a film I'm producing. (Wish I knew about the May meetup @ the time.. :P)

    I will be out of town at meetup time this month. Will be back talking about "Cognitive Therapy Astrology" I will miss you guys. If you didn't come to the eclipse on the beach you missed something special. Jim lit the cauldron and we chanted our wishes to the heavens. After that is was time for liquid refreshments.
