Vedic astrology has two distinct methods of timekeeping: those which originated in the Vedas, and the more familiar ones, used in horoscopic/personal astrology. Both are valuable and serve distinct functions when selecting auspicious times. Typically these two distinct systems are muddled together. In this class both methods will be explored and contrasted with many case studies to illustrate. Implicit in this discussion are tropical/sidereal zodiac, astrology in religious ceremonies, personal timekeeping (horoscopic/earth-centric) and spiritual (Vedic/celestial) timekeeping.
In this talk, Frank will offer new insights from his years of research into the MC. This much-neglected angle has much to say about our reputation and public image, and, as part of an axis, our parental messages and family inheritance. Astrologically, our MC complex reveals our personal definition of success and our deep-seated drives to make a societal/professional contribution. We gain recognition as we “follow our bliss” and adopt the roles described by it.
Do certain signs naturally get along and others are doomed? This is about her newest book, Susie's Love Signs, and a look at love. She struggled with finding a formula that worked for compatibility in relationships, and recently discovered the trick. The typical "like elements" or "Sun Sign squares" never worked for her. Now she feels comfortable with compatibilities and wants to share her new technique with you.
What is the evolutionary purpose of the aspects? What do we learn through the interchange of Gemini square Pisces, or Taurus opposed Scorpio? This lecture will review the spiritual programs of every (major) aspect. Each sign actually connects with all of the others to reveal a striking template for our growth. We will also address the shadow possibilities if the spiritual curriculum is approached unconsciously.

This presentation provides an interdisciplinary context for understanding human development. Because the meanings and sequence of the signs of the zodiac closely parallel developmental stages in early childhood, it is possible to form a unique hypothesis about human growth that dissolves apparent contradictions between nature vs. nurture and fate vs. free will. In merging astrology with developmental psychology, the Moon, representing the relational nature of growth, becomes the symbolic bridge between the two.
This lecture will introduce you to the universal aspects of the Nodal cycles. The signs involved speak to the meaning of these Nodal Transits. The North Node spends irregular amounts of time in each sign, a condition which translates into brief or extended phases in these 18+/-year nodal cycles. They can relate to mundane events and our individual, personal Journeys… And they become very relevant in forecasting events.
