August 14th: Rapid Chart Reading

Sometimes astrologers do spontaneous (aka "cold") 15 minute chart readings at psychic fairs and other events. How do they do it? How do they assess and address the key issues so quickly? What can be said to a client in 15 minutes?! In this presentation, we'll offer techniques on how to get to the heart of a chart rapidly and usefully. 

Attendees are requested to send in birth data for a chart they would like to have us take a quick look at. From your submissions, we will select a good variety of charts to examine. 

Meeting starts at 7pm SHARP, with a 20 minute chat about some very basic astrology for newer students, given by co-organizer Anthony Picco, followed by 15-20 minutes of personal introductions and announcements. After that, we will do some rapid chart reading for about an hour and twenty minutes, followed by general socializing. The suggested donation is $5, and greatly appreciated, but whatever you can afford is acceptable. And if you cannot afford anything, you are still welcome to attend.

PS: If you show up a little early, the Quest Bookshop is an excellent source of many metaphysical books and items, and well worth a browse. They close at 7pm.

    I've created an ID on Google, NYAstrology (amazed in retrospect that nobody has taken that, yet). I'm moving all the audios to Google Drive on that account (I figure that with 5 gigabytes, we probably won't run out of space for a while). More about it at the meeting.

    I noticed...the astrology meetup is in its twelth season.
    Will we have cake for the month of October? Likewise, it's on October 8th with a full moon lunar eclipse in Aries. Last but not least, it's my daughter's birthday. We must have cake. I know, my daughter and I will be.

  • Frieda

    Tony, can we do a workshop between September and October with emphasis on "Aspects" between planetary alignments and the houses? Which does what and how?

  • Iris

    PLEASE do Robin Williams chart!
    And his current transits as well. He had transiting Saturn crossing his Scorpio ASC recently, and Mars coming close, a few degrees from the ASC. He had Sun in Cancer and Moon in Pisces. He was all heart... He had Natal Neptune in 11 or 12 house depending on the house system, in a natal T-square opposing Jupiter and square Mars/Uranus conjunction. He had such an interesting chart. Please read his chart oh wise professional astrologers, help us understand...

    August 12, 2014

    • Bart L.

      I've added Robin Williams' chart to the list, but there is a ton of astrological analysis already out there.

      1 · August 13, 2014

    • Iris

      Yes, that is true, I've already read/seen a lot of analysis done by many astrologers, so don't do it on my account! I thought it would be of interest to more people because we all know him - or think we do. But with the information available everywhere online it's really not necessary that we do it in the meeting.

      August 13, 2014

  • cynthia

    Hi, I don't know my time of birth, would I still be able to join in for a reading?

    August 10, 2014

    • Rick

      You have your moon in cancer, guessing Libra rising with Pluto on ascendant - there are questions about certain important events that occurred in your life that can estimate time of birth

      August 12, 2014

    • Bart L.

      I had your chart already :). I used a 12:00 PM birth time, a Solar Chart (putting the cusp of your Sun Sign, Capricorn, on the cusp of the 1st House), and left out markers for the Ascendant and Midheaven.

    We are not going to have time to do EVERY chart sent in... but will pick the more interesting ones to analyze... (by interesting, I am referring to the challenges of a quick 15 minute reading)

  • Bart L.

    Suggestion for topic: A continuation of rapid reading, this time with maybe a couple of us who do psychic fairs and the like giving some of our techniques for quickly grabbing key issues out of a chart?

    2 · August 4, 2014

  • Frieda

    I will be there but, it's usually the first week of August.
    What happened Tony?

    1 · July 30, 2014

    • Tony P.

      Usually it is the second week of every month... it was the first Tuesday a couple of months ago, but we try to keep in the second week... Tues or Thurs

      July 30, 2014

    • Bart L.

      Which is a good thing; Tuesday is National Night Out, and I'm covering a couple of events that evening.

      August 4, 2014

  • Bart L.

    I'd like to do the start up work a forum and file repository for the group, and ensure that people who are actually RUNNING the group get access. I'm thinking using Google, mainly because of the generous amount of file space that they give, and the fact that they are more group-friendly than others. Input, anybody?
