What is Vibrational Astrology and Why is it Becoming Very Popular
What is Vibrational Astrology and Why is it Becoming Very Popular

Vibrational Astrology (VA) is based on ideas in harmonic astrology, midpoints, modern psychological astrology, and Vedic astrology. In the past few years interest in Vibrational Astrology has grown enormously. We will learn what VA is and why it is growing rapidly in popularity. We will also learn about the close connections of VA with spirituality, mysticism, science, and psychology. We will also learn the procedure that a Vibrational Astrologer uses to interpret a birth chart. In this lecture we will learn:

  • What the two most important things in the astrology chart are according to VA. Hint: they are not zodiac sign or house placements.
  • How these two fundamental things in the astrology chart reveal the personality, talents, and issues of the person.
  • The way that the meanings of planets, signs, and houses have been re-interpreted in VA.
  • How the astrology chart is inherently a therapeutic tool.
  • The mystical vision inherent in VA.
  • The scientific support for VA.
  • Reasons for the recent sudden rapid growth of VA.
  • Resources for further studies in VA.

Nuno Michaels - Working with Rulers and Dispositors

When you begin to integrate the use of dispositors and rulers into your astrological delineations, a new dimension of the birth chart reveals itself before your mind’s eyes. Soon, you won’t delineate another chart without following these subtle, yet fundamental, energetic threads. In this non-technical overview of the topic, we will cover the basic concepts, rules and principles regarding dispositorship and see how these apply, in practical terms, to the natal chart.

Frances Clynes - Neptune and the New Frontier
Frances Clynes - Neptune and the New Frontier

In the myths, Poseidon, although god of the sea, is hungry for land. When Neptune was discovered in 1846 it was exactly conjunct Saturn at 25˚Aquarius and conjunct the Moon in the US chart (Sibley). In the US, this was the beginning of the great Western migration as people sought a new home. In 1969, Neptune squared the US Moon and Poseidon once more claimed land when the American flag was raised on the Moon. This talk will look at the relationship between Neptune and the US chart up to the present day.
