Lecture Topic:  Basics of Uranian Astrology, plus applying it to the Financial Markets 
The first half of the lecture, David will introduce us to the basics of Uranian Astrology using the 90 degree dial.  In the second half, he will offer us some insights into how he applies this system in working with the financial markets, i.e. the stock market.  The Uranian Planets are great tools for giving much more accuracy in predictive work
David Beazley, born in England, worked as a Marine Engineer for 20 years.  He started studying metaphysics in 1986.  He qualified in Tarot and Palmistry at the Totland Tarot Centre in England in 1992 and studied Astrology for many years - being privileged to be taught by some of the top Astrologers in England.  He became a Professional Astrologer in 1991, specializing in Relationship, Psychological and Financial Astrology.  He moved to Florida in 1993 and became an ordained minister in 1994.  David teaches Astrology Classes on all levels and travels extensively doing workshops on Uranian Astrology. 


Improve Your Astrological Skills - 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.

March 4, 2004    Maritha Pottenger - Lecture - "Past Lives
and Astrology" 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.

March 6, 2004    Maritha Pottenger - Workshop - "Current Patterns in Astrology" 
Her 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!     List of Books by Maritha

AASP 2002 - 2003 Season

Our first speaker for Sept 2002 Season was Jan Carter, on Draconic AstrologySoular Astrology  The Draconic Chart is basically the same as the Tropical by position, but we take the Tropical North Node (Dragon's Head) and place it at 0 degrees Aries, and then move all of the planets and angles to the corresponding change of arc.  Most major Astrology Software, such as Solar Fire and WinStar, can calculate it for you - or it can be done easily by hand using a 360 Degree Conversion Table, which will be supplied.
Jan is the AASP President. Jan first learned about Draconic Astrology in 1995.  Since then, she has been incorporating it in her work and blending it with the Tropical System.  Blending the systems is referred to as "Multi-Dimensional Astrology". 

The traditional Tropical System is believed to relate to the  "ego", whereas the Sun/Moon based Draconic System relates to the "soul".  This System, whose origins are believed to be Ancient Babylonia, is gaining more interest and recognition, especially through the efforts of British Astrologer, Pamela Crane. 


On October 3/2002 we had Robert Blaschke, topic Karmic Astrology.

 Karmic Astrology Lecture  How to interpret the birth chart in the context of present life karma as a continuation of past life experiences was discussed. The lunar nodes, retrograde planets, the twelfth house, interceptions, the ascendant, the Moon, Saturn and Pluto was covered in this thought provoking presentation about karma, and how to look for it in the horoscope. Karmic transits and secondary progressions were also included.

Topic: “My Life In Astrology...Over Forty Years and Still Counting!”

A synopsis of the lecture:

For over half a century, horoscopes and various books on astrology and dreams have been published, worldwide, under the penname, Zolar--created by Bruce King. In 1976, a dying King called Don Papon to his Westside Manhattan apartment. Taking Don’s hand in his, he said, “Don. You’re the next Zolar!” In this very personal lecture, Dr. Don will share details of his flirtation with the stellar art, including his first horoscope reading by Bessie Lispenard, his teaching the first academically approved course on astrology in the United States, his friendship with Sybil Leek and other astrologers of prominence, and how he first got published! You won’t want to miss this exciting presentation, with plenty of time to ask questions.

 Short bio:

Dr. Don, aka Zolar, is a foreign trained Homeopathic Physician; a Jungian Astrologer, and an ordained New Thought Minister. He holds degrees in philosophy, holistic health, and homeopathy, and was the analysand of Erlo van Waveren, a direct disciple of Carl. G Jung. One of his specialties is medical astrology. He teaches, locally, at The Temple of The Living God in St. Petersburg.
