How to Discover Temperament in an Astrology Chart

Temperament shows a person’s inherent psychological disposition, and we usually describe that in four types: melancholic, sanguine, choleric, phlegmatic, or a combo of two of the four. Buttressed by seven years of research, experimentation with various methods, and feedback from hundreds of clients, Reynolds will outline methods and introduce easy ways to extract a client’s temperament from his or her astrological chart.

SPEAKER: Samuel F. Reynolds (always interesting!)
BIO: In 1990, my adventures in astrology started with an attempt to stop an astro-fiend from calling me a Scorpio when I liked being a Centaur more since I was on “the cusp.” Thinking I was inoculated by disbelief, I saw an astrologer. He happily told me I was a Scorpio and knew things about my life way beyond the pale of guesswork or an on-the-spot personality assessment. Stubbornly unconvinced, I studied astrology until, surprisingly, I had become an astrologer and a Scorpio. #Sigh

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, Samuel F. Reynolds 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.

    I'll probably be there at 7:20 or 7:30 because I have work until 7 that day, but I am really looking forward to it!

      The first 30-40 minutes involve a short chat for beginners and an introduction period, so you will catch all of Samuel F. Reynolds talk...

    So sorry to miss this! Temperament is a fascinating topic. I sometimes lie awake at night trying to reconcile the puzzling overlap between phlegmatic and earth (or maybe it's just a particularity of Taurus, possibly explained by its lunar exaltation). I highly recommend Temperament - Astrology's Forgotten Key by Dorian Gieseler Greenbaum. Excellent book on the subject!

    I've heard some astrologers say that the very first thing that you need to learn in astrology are the temperaments, yet it's a subject that is generally neglected. VERY good choice. And, as per usual, I will be available to print out charts for people. I'll see if I can change my page design a smidge to include a temperaments chart on them. I'll ask Sam.

      Always free of charge (as long as you don't ask for a whole bunch at once; I theoretically only give one, but I can be flexible). Any Tuesday or Thursday afternoon/evening at the Quest Bookshop.

    I'm looking forward to more enlightenment.
