Exploring Eris

Eris, the newest addition to the solar system, is a dwarf planet far out past Pluto named for the sister of Mars. We will look at its mythological roots, chart examples from the famous and infamous, and its implications in mundane astrology and modern history. For instance, it seems to play a part in women’s issues. This lecture focuses on ideas and speculation about interpretation rather than definitive research. Attendees can bring their charts and offer input.

Beth Turnage will give the pre-lecture starting on 6:15 PM on Trans-Neptunian planets and why they are important to us now.

Workshop: Sat., March 21, 2015, 10:00 AM-5:00 PM

Follow the Ruler
With so much to look at in charts and forecasting, it is easy to drown in details. Going back to the basics can be very revealing! Using charts of well-known people and data provided by participants (their own or those of people they want to examine), we will follow the rulers of the Sun and Rising signs to see high and low points indicated by progressions, returns and transits.

Crime in the Stars!
Forensic Astrology Tells the Tale

Forensic astrology is a narrow and relatively new specialty. Earliest forensic astrology efforts were based on horary techniques and interesting applications of name asteroid astrology. New experimental techniques can be very revealing and include one that suggests where the victim might be found. We will look at the “traditional” forensic astrology of this field’s pioneers and the new techniques utilizing the applications of “time to the crime,” astro-locality charts and the importance of the “last seen” chart.

The lecture is free to members, $10 for the general public.

And I will be at the Astrological Society of Connecticut New Age Fair on Sunday February 15, 2014 (weather permitting) giving readings from 10 AM to 4 PM.

Directions: Take I-91 to exit 26. Follow signs to Old Wethersfield Historical district. At the intersection of Main Street (flag pole), turn left. The hall is the third building down on left. Plenty of free parking at the rear of the building; lectures on the second floor.

Another Light on the Planets: Understanding Essential Spiritual Lessons in the Chart

Many astrologers identify particular temperamental, familial and professional predispositions in a chart; however the actual spiritual purpose of these traits and conditions is often not considered. A perspective on these issues framing them as essential lessons for the evolution of the soul has much to offer in terms of growth and healing strategies. Judy will go through each planet to elaborate the why behind their influence.

Judy Tsafrir, MD, is an adult and child holistic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst in private practice in Newton, MA. She is also a professional astrologer and tarot reader.


Sunday February 23, 2013, Sunday, 10AM – 4PM

Four times a year we offer the public a sampling of metaphysical readings: Angel cards, psychometry, and of course, astrology! Plus aura photos, a variety of vendors and bodywork like reflexology, massage or Reiki. Free presentations covering the broad spectrum of the metaphysical world.

Lecture: Thursday, September 20, 2012 7:00 PM
Julene Packer

The Vertex and the Law of Attraction: This lecture illustrates how the Vertex represents what we unconsciously attract into our lives. The Vertex is an electric angle that has to do with electrostatic release points of the earth and is the most unconscious point of the chart. Always found in the western hemisphere of the chart, the Vertex is often referred to as the third angle and a point where we encounter fate or things beyond our control.

Workshop: Saturday, September 22, 2012
10:00 AM-5:00 PM
Julene Packer

Astrological timing of Events: Clients often come to us wanting to know when something is going to happen. These questions can be answered by Horary; but the alternative is to look at transits, progressions, and/or directions. This technique is based on the speed of transits. She will do this once using a famous person and a past event and then will do timings of events in the lives of participants.

Julene Packer Louis, Dipl.OCA, is a professional astrologer who combines the disciplines of Yoga and Astrology as a journey to awakening. She is the CEO of the International Academy of Astrology, where she has been teaching for twelve years. Julene is certified by ISAR as a CAP (certified astrological professional).
