AASP March Lecture and Workshop

Improve Your Astrological Skills & Enhance Your Life

Maritha Pottenger, author of 10 astrology books and world-traveler for astrology, will be visiting Florida in March. She has a knack for “putting the pieces together” with astrology—and showing others how to do that quickly and easily.                               1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 - =

Maritha spent several years doing workshops on Past Lives and Astrology for the Learning Annex in San Diego and Los Angeles, so she has discussed the topic with hundreds of people—including a number of individuals who have either past-life memories or “flashbacks” or “bleed-throughs” from earlier times. “Those who do not remember the history are doomed to repeat it.” Learn from your past to improve your future!


After an introduction covering past life research and patterns, we will examine horoscopes. Using the “karmic factors” in the horoscope (e.g., Saturn, Nodes of the Moon, 12th house and more), speculations can be made regarding possible past lives of participants. (Bring your own horoscope.) Her book, Past Lives, Future Choices: The Astrology of Reincarnation, is useful, but not essential.

This workshop will help you understand the different systems in Astrology that help us to look into the future—and to decide which systems will be most useful for you, personally.

Handouts and discussion will cover the major forms of current patterns: progressions, solar arc directions, transits, and solar returns (along with lunar and planetary returns). Tips will be offered about how best to work with current patterns and what factors are "timing triggers" in each system. Case studies will be presented to illustrate the different forms of current patterns. A system will be presented for discovering which method(s) of current patterns will work best for your horoscope. Her book, Unveiling the Future: Progressions Made Easy is useful, but not essential.

Bring your horoscope with progressions, transits, and any other systems of looking ahead which you wish to examine!

Astrological Consultations with Maritha Pottenger 

1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   0   -    = 

Maritha is the author of 10 books on astrology, including her latest (written with her mother, Dr. Zipporah Pottenger Dobyns), Healing Mother Daughter Relationships with Astrology (published by Llewellyn in the summer of 2003). Maritha has taught astrology all over the world—in Europe, Russia, Canada, Mexico, Australia, and New Zealand as well as many states in the U.S. She has lectured at most major astrological conferences, including all the United Astrology Congresses: 1986, 1989, 1992, 1995, 1998, and 2002.

Her emphasis is on activist astrology—using astrology as a tool to make the most of your opportunities and timing, to transform negative habit patterns into positive ones. She believes that the better we understand our options, the more wisely we can make our decisions and choices. 

A consultation with Maritha costs $95.00 and takes an hour. She will cover natal potentials, and look ahead about a year (sometimes further if major developments are coming up) with progressions and transits.

Other astrological services are available, such as Relocation, Synastry (Chart Comparison), Electional, etc. Just ask. 

Maritha will have limited time available in Florida, so appointments will be made on a first come, first served basis. She will be available for consultations in the St. Pete area on Friday, March 5. She will be available for consultations in the Orlando area on Monday, March 8. 

To make an appointment, contact Maritha before March 1. She will need your full birth data. You can reach her by e-mail at: maritha@pacbell.net or by phone: (619) 563-5140. Please note that she lives on the West Coast, so it is 3 hours earlier where she is if you call!
