Wednesday 6th May 2020, 7pm ONLINE 

ASTROLOGICAL ASSOCIATION LOCAL GROUP ORGANISERS ZOOM MEETING.

Chris Mitchell for "UK and Ireland Local Astrology Groups" writes:
"With a lot of local astrology groups going online, we at the AA thought it would be a good idea to host an online event where local group organisers - and anyone thinking of starting up a local group - could get together and discuss whatever they want about local groups. For example, how to set up a Zoom talk, whether platforms other than Zoom could work instead, online etiquette, attracting speakers, whether to charge and so on.

We're having our first local group organisers' Zoom meeting on Wednesday 6 May at 19:00, and are planning regular (probably every three months) get-togethers for local group organisers. Apologies if Wednesday isn't a good day for you, but with 31 local groups we knew trying to find a mutually convenient day for everyone was going to be nigh-on impossible - but hopefully things like this can be resolved at our first chat. We'll be sending out notes to anyone who'd like to have attended, but can't, too.

The AA sent out a mailshot a few days ago to the local group co-ordinators that we know about - but currently, our mailing list only has one person per local group, and we don't know how up to date it is. Therefore, if you're one of the organisers for your local group and you'd like to be involved in these local group meetings but didn't get the mailshot, could you please either message me on Facebook or email me at chris.mitchell@astrologicalassociation.com and let me have your email address, name, and what local group you're involved in, and I'll add you to our mailing list. Email addresses won't be shared with anyone by the AA, so if local group organisers want to share email addresses with each other, that's up to you at the Zoom meeting or subsequently. I'm always happy to pass messages on, too. "


If any EAG organisers are interested in joining this meeting please see the above details and contact Chris Mitchell.

Sunday 10th May 2020: Open Session at Friends Meeting House

Friday 22nd May 2020: Special Guest Speaker, Chris Mitchell


ONLINE TALK hosted by SOUTH WEST ASTROLOGY GROUP ONLINE  

INTRODUCTION TO MEDIEVAL ASTROLOGY - CHRIS MITCHELL. 

This talk will  happen online via Zoom.   Members will be invited by email to join the talk using a link nearer the time.  It will take place in the evening from 7.30pm to 9.30pm  with the talk lasting just over an hour or so. Questions can be asked at the end of the session to Chris.

As modern astrologers, we're used to drawing up charts in seconds on a computer, and using numerous techniques, outer planet transits and a psychological language to work with our clients. Ours is a rich and subtle art. How, then, did medieval astrologers manage with just seven planets and five aspects? Was theirs simply a limited cut-down version of what we have available to us in modern astrology?

In this talk, Chris Mitchell will demonstrate some of the richness of medieval astrology. Despite the lack of outer planets and modern techniques, medieval astrologers had a surprisingly large toolkit of methods lost to modern astrology: dignity, almutens, Arabic Parts, lunations and profections, to name but a few. The recent resurgence of modern translations of ancient texts mean these fascinating methods have been rediscovered, so find out how you can use them today to enrich your own astrological readings.

Ed will be looking at a range of mundane charts from the beginning of the Republic just after the English Civil War to the 1922 chart for the United Kingdom and the creation of the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland. Many of these charts are rarely looked at by astrologers who default to the well-known UK 1801 chart. This talk will be a chance to reflect on the state of the nation through the lens of mundane astrology.

Sunday 8th March 2020: Karen Wallwork on Neptune

The planet Neptune in the chart, based on Evolutionary Astrology and the work of Steven Forrest and Jeffrey Wolf Green. The cosmic evolutionary guide that you have for your journey with the map of your chart. Karen sees the matrix with Gnostic perceptions and Neptune is the guide to see reality from illusion and therefore understand the game within the matrix. Freedom from illusion is the gift of Neptune. You may wish to know what house/sign your Neptune is in and what aspects it makes to your chart or just come along and listen for further investigation if inspired.
