This months' meeting will involve a presentation and group discussion about the basics of electional astrology.
Electional astrology is a branch of astrology that is used to determine auspicious times to begin new ventures and undertakings.
The premise is that events have birth charts, and these charts, which are set for the moment that the event begins, contain information about the future of whatever is born or initiated at that time.
If an astrological chart set for the start of an event or undertaking does in some way reflect its future, then, by extension, an astrologer should be able to choose or “elect” specific times when a successful outcome would be more likely. This is the purpose of electional astrology.
During the meeting Chris Brennan will present some basic rules and tips for finding auspicious electional charts, and then we will have a group discussion about different things that group members look for themselves when electing charts.
The meeting should have something for everyone, whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced student/practitioner of astrology.
Handouts and RSVPing
There will be a few pages of handouts, so if you plan on attending please RSVP, that way we know how many handouts to bring.
There is no fee attending this meeting, although donations of 3 to 5 dollars are appreciated, as they help to cover the cost of making handouts and the fee for hosting our page on Meetup.com. Any additional money collected will go towards hosting future speakers.
Length of the Meeting
The meeting will start at 3:00 PM, and will probably go until about 5:00 PM. After that people are free to hang out and socialize in the cafe.
Note that the Mercury Cafe also serves brunch earlier in the day, so if anyone wants to come early, around 2:00 PM, there will probably be some other astrologers there having brunch.
Just a reminder that the Denver Astrology Group now has a small library, and you can check books out from it at each meeting.
It is only $10 a year to sign up for the library, and you can check out one book at each meeting, and then you will have to return it at the next meeting the following month.
See our website for a complete catalog of all of the books currently available in the library: http://www.denverastrologygroup.com/library/holdings/
If you would like us to bring a book to the meeting for you to check out then just send an email to Chris at: [masked]
We will also be bringing a box of some of the best books from the library with us to the meeting, for those of you who would like to browse through them in person.
We look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday!
