The Astrology of the Weird

Everyone and everything has a birth chart, and some correspond with stranger circumstances than others. In this lecture, we’ll look at birth charts for those with particularly unusual stories (and that have those rare accompanying birth times!), and examine how these charts reflect the very unique events and situations described. Charts for a couple of Guinness World Record stories are included in here, as well as for other unusual stories collected from the news.

This lecture is meant to be both fun and educational, illustrating core interpretive astrological principles through the kind of stories that make us all think ‘Wow, I wonder what that chart looks like?’ While the stories gathered here are very specific, a variety of foundational astrological rules are discussed throughout the presentation that can be applied to your chart interpretation going forward.

This lecture was recorded in May 2020 at the annual NORWAC conference, hosted online.

Microcosms of Time: Zodiacal Releasing’s Multiple Levels

Zodiacal releasing is a Hellenistic timing technique that shows more active and important periods of time in one’s career or relationship life, as well as a longer map of time with regard to these topics. Though the major periods show the big-picture backdrop, this technique operates on at least four levels simultaneously. You can witness fascinating microcosms of time play out as the different levels interact, and this kind of “stacking” on multiple levels is oftentimes when some of the most important events will take place.

This lecture assumes some basic knowledge of zodiacal releasing in order to be able to introduce additional layers, though there is a brief recap of the most important pieces in the beginning to make sure everyone is able to follow along. If you’d like an introduction first, here is a link to the zodiacal releasing intro podcast on The Astrology Podcast.

Finding Joy and Meaning in the Birth Chart

While using astrology to look at problems either we or our clients are facing is common and helpful, we can also provide balance and potential resources by bringing in topics that may give different people the most joy and/or meaning. This lecture explores the different places in the birth chart to look for topics and areas of life most likely to provide these qualities, illustrated through example charts and real-life stories. This is then extended further to briefly touch on the larger role of positive luck in life, and the potential societal benefits of collectively acknowledging the areas in which things go well for us.

This lecture was based on both existing anonymous client and other charts as well as a survey returned by over 100 people volunteering their own greatest sources of joy and meaning, then clarified in follow-up exchanges and compared with their birth charts.

This 75-minute lecture was presented at the NORWAC 2019 conference for the first time. Your purchase will include both the audio file and the pdf version of the 46-slide Powerpoint presentation, including visuals of the example charts discussed during the lecture.

Repeating Years, Repeating Themes

Annual profections is a timing technique that shows which life themes will be highlighted during each year of life, creating a 12-year repeating pattern that you can trace back in your life. This lecture will explain the basics of how this technique works, and then show what this repeating pattern looks like using a variety of example charts. The lecture also introduces what to look for in timing more specific events within a specific year related to that year’s main theme.

Saturn Returns and Sect

The ancient concept of sect, which is the distinction between day and night charts, can be used to help explain why different people experience their Saturn returns in remarkably different ways.

This lecture focuses on how the subjective experience of the Saturn return as either more challenging or more constructive can be altered depending on the sect of a chart, and what implications that has for how life’s difficulties are regarded in contemporary astrology. Included are a number of example charts so you can get a sense of how this distinction works out in real people’s Saturn return experiences.
