A Basic Look at Chinese Astrology

Raphael Simons, internationally recognized expert, teacher and author of books in Chinese astrology and feng shui, will give a talk on Chinese astrology, showing what it consists of, its different branches and how it works. He will also give predictions for the year of Wood Horse that begins at the new moon on January 30. While Chinese astrology compares favorably with western astrology, it is entirely different.


Meeting starts at 7pm SHARP, with a 20 minute chat about some very basic astrology for new students, given by co-organizer Anthony Picco, followed by 15-20 minutes of personal introductions and announcements. After that, Raphael Simons will speak for roughly and hour and fifteen minutes, followed by general socializing.

The suggested donation is $5, and greatly appreciated, but whatever you can afford is acceptable.

      Although, I also appreciated Raphael's lecture, he could have elaborated more in a language (English) which most are familiar.

      Fortunately, I have some familiarity with Chinese Astrology but, for those who didn't it must have been confusing. If I initiate enlightening someone about a situation that is foreign to them my responsibility is to convey the information in a terminology which they can interpret.

    I haven't listened to my recording yet, but I will try to make it available somewhat faster than last month's. Also, as long as I was taking pics of Raph, I took some of Tony, too (none of the audience).

    I'll be seeing Raph next week; I'll go over with him whatever custom printouts the attendees might want.

      He said no printouts are needed.
