The September AOA Meeting
Introduction to the Hellenistic System continued…
In the presentation about annual profections last month, (see the slide show here) Julia introduced some concepts that form the basis of the Hellenistic approach to chart interpretation.
At the September AOA meeting we will talk about “sect” and how it is used to describe the dignity and debility of a planet in the natal chart. This idea is a little more complex than the the time lord technique described last month. So let’s take it slow and look at some charts.
It’s an introduction to some ideas the AOA would like to expand on next year with some workshops.
Come to the September AOA meeting and get introduced to a new “old” concept and learn some fun new language.
But beware, you could get hooked.
If you would like to have your birth chart included as part of the conversation, send your birth information (date/time/location) in advance of the meeting (So Julia has time to look at it) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also on the agenda for the September AOA meeting:
Professional level memberships: The AOA is creating a program to support our professional astrologer members. We want to help you be successful in your business. We will preview that program at this meeting. It will be available for signup for the 2018 membership year. We will have a sample page to show everyone what it will look like starting in January.
A little bit about Hellenistic Astrology:
Hellenistic astrology is a tradition of Greco-Roman astrology that originated in the Mediterranean region sometime around the 1st century BCE, and was practiced until approximately the 7th century. It is the source of many of the modern traditions of astrology that still flourish around the world today.
This tradition originated partially out of a synthesis of the ancient Egyptian and Mesopotamian traditions of astrology, and it influenced many other subsequent traditions across Europe, Africa, the Middle East and India during the middle ages and through to modern times.
Despite its pivotal role in the history of astrology, many of the details surrounding the theory and practice of Hellenistic astrology were unknown until relatively recently. Many of the foundational texts of this tradition have only become available again over the course of the past century, and modern translations of these texts from Greek and Latin have only started to be published in the past few decades.
