June 8 Meetup

                                                June Meetup

                               Sunday June 8, 2014 ~ Noonish

                   (International Society for Astrological Research)

                  Astrology, Tarot & Numerology ~ How they Connect

                       Fee ~ None, Your attendance is all we ask.

This month we begin introducing the various National and International Astrological Organizations. What better way to start than with Gisele Terry, President of ISAR. Gisele Terry, M.A., M.F.T., C.A.P. (Certified Astrological Professional), is a graduate of Antioch University and a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California. In her practice she works with individuals, couples and families in a variety of modalities. Her specialties include depression, anxiety, eating disorders and post traumatic stress disorders. She integrates the techniques of EMDR and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy to assist clients to go deeper and more quickly resolve difficult issues.

The International Society for Astrological Research (ISAR) is an educational organization whose members are dedicated to promoting high standards of ethics in astrological education and research. ISAR began as a research-oriented astrological organization in the late 1960’s. In 1979, ISAR was incorporated as a nonprofit organization in the state of California.

ISAR advances education in astrology through its Certification Program. Ethics Awareness, Consulting Skills, Competency Skills, and elective courses are requirements for those who wish to become ISAR Certified Astrologers. ISAR’s Certification Program has been translated and incorporated into astrological schools and organizations in several different countries including Argentina, Russia, Turkey, Ukraine, Serbia, Israel, and China.

Biennial conferences are another way that ISAR promotes education. This year’s conference is being held September 25-28, 2014, in Phoenix. The Theme is “Stepping Into the Circle: Embracing the Spirit of Community.

In future Meetups we will take a look at other Astrology Organizations such as NCGR, AFA, OPA, the Association for Young Astrologers and any others we can find.

BIG News: I have found, or she found me, either way we have a trained Vedic Astrologer to speak at a future Meetup. Date to be determined. In the meantime, if you are curious about or want to learn more about Vedic Astrology, check out Taara and her new Vedic Astrology Meetup group: Of course I’ve joined.

At this time, Mercury is already in its shadow and slowing down.  By the time of this month’s Meetup, Mercury will have joined Saturn and Pluto in retrograde motion. Mercury will be retrograde for 24 days (June 7 to July 1), which is as long as it can be retrograde. Though long in days or time, Mercury will only retrace its steps over 8 degrees 47’ of the zodiac. It seems with Mercury, the longer the retrograde in time, the shorter the distance it covers. It would seem to want to “add emphasis” to those few degrees by spending more time there.

With Jupiter having moved on (21 Cancer) the dominant pattern now is a Cardinal T-Square with Mars in Libra opposing Uranus in Aries and both squaring Pluto in Capricorn. With six planets in cardinal signs and four planets in water signs, the dominate energy is very Cancerian. The Lunar Nodes continue their retrograde march through Libra/Aries helping to focus our attention on matters of balancing self with others. This then provides a good segway into the second part of our program; my presentation on the interrelationship between Astrology, Tarot and Numerology.

In addition to covering the correspondences between the Major Arcana of the Tarot and the signs and planets of astrology, I will show you how to determine your various “life cards,” which year you are in now and how the cycle progresses. You will learn the significance of the numerology of your birth date and how that relates to astrology and the tarot as well as your age and your Major Arcana Birthday Card. This can lead to an even deeper understanding of oneself, motivations and cycles of life.

As usual, we will start this Meetup with our talk around with the “Big 3” Ascendant, Sun and Moon signs, if you know them. Don’t worry if you don’t as you will before the meetup is over. If you would like to be a speaker or have ideas for future topics, please let Spencer or I know. What we don’t know, we can all learn together.

If you have other ideas for topics, please let Spencer or I know. What we don’t know, we shall learn together. Want to be a speaker? Talk with Spencer or me. We are open to pretty much all things astrological.

Spencer and I have talked about this and because of the ongoing expense of the fees for the meetup site and costs of copies and such, we are going to add a container for “love donations” to help defray some of the costs. This is entirely voluntary. There is no fee or charge for attending this meetup; this is just to help defray some of the costs.

This meetup will be at our usual location, Un Urban Café, 3301 Pico Blvd. Great little coffee shop with delicious food and excellent drink selections. Do support the Un Urban if you can by buying a drink and/or something to eat.

Because of the remodel at the Un Urban, we need to move our post-meeting discussions and class from the back room to the main/front area by 3pm so others can have the opportunity to use the backroom and stage. Want to know what planetary day and hour you were born under? After the meetup, about 3:30pm, I will be conducting a class/ mini-consultations going into more detail on whatever you might have questions about or want to look at. I will also be answering any lingering questions from the meetup or which you may have. A fee of $10 is requested for this class.

If you have any questions, would like to request a chart or just want to chat, e-mail me [masked] or ring me up,[masked]-4417.

We hope to see you all on June 8, in support of our group and the Un Urban Café.

Un Urban Café, 3301 Pico Blvd.
