ASC Lecture: Ken Irving on Astro*Carto*Graphy

(Astrology Explored) Have you ever had the experience of having certain aspects of your life change significantly when you moved to a radically different location? Did you find your once so-so love life perk up? Your normally quiet personality open up to be more friendly and inviting? Do you ever hear someone say “I was a different person living there?” Prominent astrologer and astrology researcher, Kenneth Irving will lecture at the Astrological Society of Connecticut explaining why this happens with a presentation about Astro*Carto*
Graphy, popularly known as location astrology, on November 18, 2010 at 7:00 PM.

According to traditional astrology and verified by the empirical studies of Michel Gauquelin, if a person is born when a planet was “angular”, that is hitting one of the four major angles of the astrology chart, that planet is prominent and influential in the birth chart. Jim Lewis, the developer of Astro*Carto*Graphy, took this basic astrological idea one step further. He studied the effect that moving to a different location changes the position of the planets within the birth chart. He postulated that if a person travels or visits a place where one of their natal planets hits an angle, that planet would have a prominent role in the person’s experience of that location.

Jim Lewis was unfortunately unable to complete a comprehensive book on the subject because of a terminal illness. Kenneth Irving agreed to work with Jim in the months before Lewis’ death and finished the work titled “The Psychology of Astro*Carto*Graphy”.
