• Doug Noblehorse - Imaginal Astrology
    NOTE CHANGE IN MEETING DATE! Saturday Workshop Location: Granite Reef Senior Center, 1700 N Granite Reef Rd, Scottsdale, AZ 85257 Time: 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Doug Noblehorse - Imaginal Astrology Where does the universal power of Astrology come from? Is it possible to materially and objectively measure and evaluate the validity of astrology, as some astrologers believe? Or are there deeper cosmic influences at work - powers that we don’t yet understand? In this talk we’ll explore the idea that Astrology as an archetypal form comes to us from the mundus imaginalis, otherwise known as the Imaginal Realm. And no, the Imaginal Realm as a concept does not come to us from the Twilight Zone or Star Trek. And also no, the realm of the Imaginal is not subjective, personal fantasy or imagination run wild. Rather, this Imaginal Realm is home to the universal archetypes that are the source of deeply felt experience and wisdom that shapes our objective reality. This is where we can posit the source of Inspiration, that provides us with writing, music and all forms of art. This is where we find the power of Love, to be a bit cliched. Along the way we’ll visit Ancient Egypt’s connection to the Imaginal Realm (as suggested by Jeremy Naydler, Ph.D.) and compare it to the Egyptian roots of astrology. The Imaginal Realm is where this talk suggests that the archetypal form of Astrology exists, drawing power and energy from deeper mathematical realities (such as Sacred Geometry). But think about this. This Imaginal Astrology is the purest form possible; when one looks around the physical world one sees many different forms of astrology. So, one method we’ll use to resolve the difference is through a mental exercise where we’ll explore how much of Astrology as we know it can be stripped away - and still be Astrology. Where we’ll arrive though should surprise no astrologer though - as it all boils down to the planets. As the lecture morphs into a workshop, we’ll talk about the planets, we’ll talk about Lots (which are measures of planetary relationships) and we’ll (re)visit and (re)explore the idea of personal or Natal Antiscia - and why perhaps they’re important not only to one’s physical, material life but also why they can be crucial avenues towards deeper, personal awarenesses of cosmic realities. Doug Noblehorse Bio: Doug has been studying astrology for over 50 years, after a Reader's Digest article sparked a lifelong passion for the stars. He is a former ASA board member, having been Education Director for a time. Currently Doug is working with traditional astrology looking to integrate ancient astrological wisdom into our modern world.

  • Using Dials
    Using Dials Dials are powerful tools that dissect the chart symmetrically, and show planetary configurations and energies in a flash. We’ve all seen the 12 House chart. Let’s explore how the chart reveals new layers of information when we use a disc with moveable pointer. The astrologer can then measure the distance between two points in the sky, which will show any planetary symmetries and how the native experiences life. Many astrologers use Uranian techniques and don’t even know it! When two points lie on a common axis (in aspect) and a third planet occupies its midpoint, this is known as a “planetary picture”—These are the foundation for all types of Symmetrical Astrology, including Uranian. To dissect the chart even further, we’ll compress the zodiac by a factor of four, and look at everything with a 90º dial. The planetary glyphs all speak a cryptic, visual language, similar to that of Egyptian Hieroglyphics. This lecture is designed to make a complex subject like Uranian accessible, and is interactive in nature to solidify key concepts and encourage exploration. All example charts will come from attendees. To be included in the presentation, please email [masked] with your birth data. Two optional, comprehensive, handout packets are available for purchase for $5. About Ernesto Ernesto Amaya is a Uranian Astrologer based out of Mesa, AZ. His interest in astrology began in college, turning to Uranian after realizing that the traditional systems spoken of by many simply do not work. Ernesto is a proud Board Member of the Kepler College Uranian Astrology Discussion Group, and has worked as an operator for Psychic Source and California Psychics, providing his expert astrological consulting by phone. He is also a Co-Founder and Moderator of the Laboratory for Uranian Astrology, which is a new platform for likeminded Uranian astrologers to discuss and practice exploratory topics. Ernesto can be reached anytime by email at [masked]. DOORS OPEN at 12:30 PM on August 18, 2018. Admission is $20 for ASA members and $25 for guests. We graciously accept snacks to share during monthly meetings.

  • Integrated Solar Arcs and Transits
    Integrated Solar Arcs and Transits The biggest events seem to take place when there are clusters of overlapping solar arcs and transits activating our horoscope. There are BIG BELL cycles that create the theme for the year - these are the outer planet transits or any solar arcs. These offer us the understanding of the big picture in our personal development. Then there are the little bells - the quick inner planet transits and lunations - which act as triggers for activity. Kathy will focus on Advanced Simplicity in Astrology - and the concept of Hierarchy in Measurement - so that the important themes from overlapping solar arcs and transits can be easily understood. There will be special emphasis on weaving the BIG BELL cycles with the little bell activators for accurate timing. Learning how to steer clear of the pitfall of becoming overwhelmed by too many measurements, and being able to quickly appreciate the theme of development during highly active periods in ones chart requires simplifying our approach. ***** If you wish to have Kathy use your birth date, please send her your birth data at [masked] About Kathy Rose Currently a resident of Virginia Beach, VA, Kathy has built a thriving astrological practice distinguished by her intuitive approach.
