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!

AASP 2002 - 2003 Season
Our first speaker for Sept 2002 Season was
Jan Carter, on Draconic 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.
OnOctober 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.

Our pre-meeting program for March was with Sally Dishong discussing the birth chart and basic astrological teachings of Edgar Cayce.
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.
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.
