Speaking and Writing 

Upcoming Conference Lectures:

I am honored to be speaking at the upcoming astrological conferences listed below.

  • Northwest Astrological Conference (NORWAC), Tukwila, Washington, May 26-30, 2022.
  • International Society for Astrological Research (ISAR), Westminster, Colorado, August 25-29, 2022.
I am excited to be presenting both a pre-conference workshop and lecture at the ISAR conference in August 2022. The workshop description is below – come talk electional astrology with me before the main conference begins!

The premise of electional astrology is that you can give new ventures a
better chance of success by using astrological principles to
deliberately choose an auspicious beginning. This workshop will review
the basics of electional astrology and then build further, for those
wanting to learn or additionally refine their electional skills. During
this workshop, we will:

•Review the foundational rules for good elections
•Learn to make judgment calls between different possible charts
•Examine actual inceptions that went well, or badly, and what we can learn from them
•Explore how to find the best possible elections during ‘bad’ astrological weather

Monthly Podcast:

I co-host the Auspicious Elections Podcast, a monthly subscriber podcast about auspicious dates and times to begin important projects for greater chances of successful outcomes, and you can find out more about that here >>
