NYC Get Together
What aspects of astrology do you find most exciting lately? Which branches, authors, or techniques particularly capture your attention right now? This talk will be a round table discussion that we hope will be the start of a monthly meeting of the minds. The intention is that subsequent events will provide a venue for budding speakers to get comfortable presenting material in a low-pressure setting.
Please note that for this meeting, we’d like to attendance limited to current AYA members, though future meetings will be open to friends and prospective members. Light refreshments will be provided! Michael’s offices are just down the block from Union Square, on 5th Ave and 11th St. Please RSVP by September 13th.
AYA Pre-Conference Workshop: The Mercurial Quartet
The Association for Young Astrologers is proud to present a quartet of talks by 4 of our members, each challenging assumptions and offering fresh perspectives within their area of expertise. We’ll deal with the neglected history of our art, astrology’s intersection with other esoteric communities, human relationships and the soul itself. This family style offering serves up both variety and depth. Come and meet the future of astrology.
Dr. Jenn Zahrt will share with us the fruits of her doctoral thesis, the often ignored bloom of astrology in early 20thcentury Germany. Dr. Zahrt will take us back to this crucial period, where we’ll explore the tensions between emerging theosophical, psychological, statistical and cosmobiological approaches- a contentious ferment with surprising parallels to debates happening today.
Wonder Bright takes us inward, with a discussion about what value ancient concepts of the soul have for the modern astrologer. Wonder ignores party lines here, weaving between modern, traditional and evolutionary schools of thought, uncovering and utilizing age old ideas and applying them in a uniquely modern, spiritual way.
Rebecca Crane brings fresh perspective to an age old problem: human relationships. Inspired and informed by her background as a therapist, Rebecca guides us into a new way of looking at how couples experience their charts in relationship.
Eric Pride explores the boundary between astrology and other esoteric communities, and brings to light the fruit of these mysterious intersections. We will examine the role the language of astrology has played in both worship and magick, and explore the techniques these practitioners used to harness the power of the heavens to produce wondrous effects. Not only that, we’ll also consider the importance of this material in today’s magical and astrological communities.
Due to the conferences event requirements, we are not allowed to discount tickets for members. Your ticket purchase goes towards supporting the exposure of young people in astrology, and supporting our members.
