An Outer Planet History of the 19th & 20th Centuries: a Comparison
Our July 24 event features internationally known Mundane Astrologer Tony Dickey giving us a presentation titled “An Outer Planet History of the 19th & 20th Centuries: a Comparison.” Tony will compare outer planet ingresses to outer planet synodic alignments, and how the outermost planets’ 19th century sign positions in Aries, Taurus, and Gemini set up the events of the 20th century.
Tony first learned astrology in the mid-1970s. He got hooked on mundane astrology when he heard a series on Neptune moving inside of Pluto’s orbit in 1979, and moved onward and upward since then. When he understood how Astrology works on a collective level, everything clicked and it all began to make sense.
In the 1980s, he and some friends launched PsyPlan, Personal Astrology Planner . In the 1990s, he ran the e-zine, Used Karma, a monthly publication that spoke to issues of the day, sometimes from an astrological perspective. Since the early 2000s, Tony has been on his present journey of exploring synodic alignments and their relevance to history. While doing so, Tony began the always interesting Facebook group, Mundane Astrologers (2011), and the FB page, the 2040s are Already Here (2014).
He is currently finishing his first book, the Impending Calamity of the 20th Century, about how the world stumbled into World War I. He also helps run an urban farm in Seattle.
Our August 21 presentation features our own education director Bill Nastasiak beginning a two part presentation that is sure to be profound, entertaining, and useful to us all! Join us as Bill refreshes our Understanding of The Three-Part Self. Here’s how Bill describes the topic:
Since the formation of the first human collectives, people have been faced with at least three monumental challenges in life that serve as milestones of personal development; becoming secure in their personhood within the family unit, partnering with others in cooperative endeavors, and becoming a productive and dependable contributor to the larger social group. By synthesizing the insights of astrologers with the observations of behavioral scientists, a coherent system is established in the birth chart where all three phases of personal development are found to operate interdependently, and can be considered according to a set of observed rules.
Join us in considering the houses through a slightly different lens as we explore their application to the common concerns of modern life
And now, a special feature!
Understanding the Three-Part Self will lay the groundwork - i.e., put us all on the same page - for a special session the following Saturday, August 28, in which we’ll explore the issues of Egotism, Narcissism, Identity, and Self.
We’ll explore the differences between egotism and narcissism, and illustrate how they are different astrologically. We’ll then discuss “identity formation” and the all-important “sense of self” exploring the differences between the approaches of Freudian and Jungian analysts. This should clarify many things which can assist us in our approach in our consulting and referral practice.
This special feature is being hosted as a benefit for our members, but you still have to register to get a code and password. Please go to the website to register and of course donations are always welcome.
Our September 25 presentation features Robert Wilkinson presenting a topic of universal interest which is sure to be well-received by all! There are three under consideration: Looking at the Placement of House Rulers in Chart Analysis, How Our Chart Expresses Our Spiritual Potential, or The Cell Salts in Astrology. I’ve gotten requests for all three. (Cell Salts is the single most popular article in the history of my website.). Your feedback on which you’d like is most welcome, and if there’s enough interest, I’ll do one in August and the other one a bit later. As your feedback comes in, I’ll post more on the website and in the next newsletter.
Mark your calendar, since we’ll be coming together again on October 23, November 27 and December 18, and we are hopeful we’ll be able to meet in person for the December Solstice gathering. As the schedule develops for the rest of this year and 2022, we’ll let you know well in advance about the speakers and topics. We’re still exploring how to do special presentations for members on other days than the ones listed above, so make sure your membership dues are current!

If You're Wondering What We've Been Up to the Past Few Months...
April 17th featured Astrologer and author Eric Alan Meece giving his take on “America At The Crossroads,” looking at a dozen relevant charts, including the Neptune/Pluto conjunction which set this entire 500 year cycle into motion, the chart for the Insurrection, Inauguration, and various Eclipses coming in future years which will impact the US in countless ways. The audio of this talk will also be available after it has been edited.
Our May 15 presentation featured Astrologer and author Elizabeth Hazel who gave us a great talk on “Escaping the Twelfth House.” We examined many different charts for jailbreaks, penitentiary escapes, and prisoner of war escapes. There are many interesting patterns in play when we wish to escape from anything, whether jail or life circumstances.
Our June 26 event featured Astrologer and author Anthony Louis who gave us a great talk on ”Using Planetary Hours in Astrology.” He led us through a fascinating talk about using a combination of “the lord of the orb (the planetary hour at birth)” and annual profections to illustrate how the ancient Persians approached larger life cycles of 12 years and 7 years in combination with the Solar Return to see what will happen during any given phase of life.
We welcome all visitors to our presentations, so please join us! As you know by now, we and countless other groups around the nation are doing our astrological presentations using ZOOM webinar technology. If you want to attend future presentations, please go to the ZOOM website and download the latest software. Without the latest software, you may experience difficulty logging in. They release new versions often, so please upgrade before you join our discussions.
Despite all the problems associated with the pandemic, we were still able to give some outstanding presentations in the past 8 months, and are gearing up for more great offerings throughout 2021! And with the vaccine helping us all feel a little safer, we are hoping to resume our in-person meetings at The Astrology Store in Glendale by Autumn. When we resume our in-person meetings, we're also intending to stream them via Zoom for those who cannot make the drive to Glendale. (This should be welcome for our members in other states and "across the pond.")
To anticipate a question, no, you don’t have to have a camera or microphone to attend a ZOOM webinar. All you need to attend is internet access and speakers. As noted earlier, admission for all events is a modest $10 for members, $15 for non-members. If you’re interested in attending the webinars, please contact us and make sure you’re on our mailing list so we can notify you in advance of the presentations.
We’re experimenting with other models for making astrology available to the public, including discussions on topics of interest at our Facebook page and hopefully at some point, find ways of doing roundtables on specific subjects if there’s enough interest, so make sure your membership dues are current!
Your donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you
