Here is the schedule:
10:15 AM OPENING
10:30 AM SPRING EQUINOX CELEBRATION10:45 AM 11:30 AM UNDERSTANDING AND MAINTAINING HEALTH THROUGH ASTROLOGY Jessica Lanyadoo
Jessica Lanyadoo's talk will provide insight and strategies for coping with mental and body health issues as they show up in the birth chart and by transit. We will focus on the influence of the outer planets, their impact on our medical predispositions and how to find them reflected in the chart. This will be a lively discussion that is suitable for astrology connoisseurs of all levels, with a useful handout of information for the novice.11:45 AM 12:30 PM REAL ESTATE: YOUR HOME OR YOUR LIFE?? Georgia Stathis
A lot of people think their homes are investments, when they are really their homes. This confusion has been one of many misconceptions that contributed to the current difficulties in the real estate market. Though the subprime mortgage debacle created more than expected foreclosures and upside down mortgages, borrowers have also contributed to this economic challenge. This lecture will discuss the differences between homes as homes and homes as investments and the cycles that accompany these two very different approaches real estate. These cycles are really quite predictable. This lecture is geared to the public with references to planetary cycles.12:45 PM 1:30 PM INVESTING WITH ASTROLOGY Jonathan Pearl
Are stocks going up or down? Is it a bull market or bear? We'll look at the longer term moves of the stock market as seen through Jupiter and Saturn. Find out when to buy in and when to get out. We'll also look at what's coming up for the next few years.
1:30 PM 2:00 PM LUNCH BREAK2:00 PM 2:45 PM "WHY WAS I BORN?" HONORING YOUR CHILD'S LIFE PURPOSE Linda Rose
Have you been thrown by the difference in your romantic expectations of parenting and the reality on the ground? Your child's chart is the best nuts and bolts 'how-to' manual there is. And when you know, accept, and honor your child's Life Purpose, everything gets easier. How soon is too soon? Wait until your baby is born, of course, but not a minute more!3:00 PM 3:45 PM WHAT IS ASTROLOGY? KT The Astrologer
Find out what Astrology really is and what it isn't. Learn how astrology has been regarded throughout history and how it is regarded today. Astrology is useful for character analysis but it can also provide much more insight into just about every area of life such as world events, the stock market and even the most auspicious time to start a new business! Understand how astrology can be applied to your life.4:00 PM 4:45 PM ASTROLOGY AND CONSCIOUS RELATIONSHIPS Greg Bogart, PhD
Astrology can help us sustain and enhance our relationships so that we flourish within them. This presentation introduces synastry (chart comparison) and the art of couples counseling, with an emphasis on lunar aspects as a means of understanding each person's capacity for emotional attachment. Greg will show how astrology aids us in working through relationships conflicts, anger, impasses, and shutdowns. Astrology generates insights that can enhance, heal, and sustain our relationships, enabling us to interact and live with other people more joyously, with greater tolerance and humor. He will discuss relationship symbolism of the natal chart, and synastry, the process of comparing two charts and their interactions.5:00 PM 5:45 PM AMERICA'S MONEY KARMA Jessica Murray
Even more so than sex, money is the big taboo in the United States. Coveted yet despised, no other issue elicits such intense feelings. This ambivalence is spelled out in the chart of the USA; where Pluto, the planet of obsession, resides in the house of materialism. The indicators are clear that America?s money karma will either kill it or transform it; a crisis that will be played out over the next few years.6:15 PM 7:30 PM KEYNOTE ADDRESS: ASTROLOGY AND COMMUNITY Jeff Jawer
The practice of astrology primarily addresses the character and cycles of individuals. The psychological development of 20th century astrology contributed to trends of individualism that have created both a sense of freedom and alienation. We are empowered with a sense of identity that is freed from traditional cultural references that is also an artificial separation of the personal and the collective. This talk will address ways to reintegrate community concerns within an astrological context, not to return to a pre-industrial worldview but to make astrology a relevant part of the post-modern world.7:30 PM 8:30 PM WINE AND CHEESE RECEPTION
