As part of the AOA’s planning for a post-covid world, at the end of last year, we surveyed our members with questions about what they would like to see in AOA program offerings.
The primary response was education, classes, and learning-based opportunities.
Along with a program for entry level classes that is currently in development and a discussion about how to be more social when it is safe to get back together in person, the AOA is excited to start presenting half-day weekend skill-building workshops online. The teachers will be well-known expert teaching astrologers. If the response is good, this will be the first of several throughout the year.
These workshops will be more expensive to host and in order to continue this series, we need to understand the level of interest in the community. If you are planning on attending, please register online below and get your ticket early. Zoom links will go out to ticket holders on the Friday before the Saturday workshop.
We need around twenty signups to make this a viable event ongoing. If it is successful we will continue to host them.
If you would like to become a member and qualify for the lower price, you may do so here.
For our first offering, we are excited to have Georgia Stathis as the teacher.
Georgia is an internationally known natal and business astrologer and teacher since 1977. She received her Bachelor of Science degree from Northwestern University and her MBA from Pepperdine.
She authored Business Astrology 101, Pushing through Time (2019), the annual Starcycles Cheat Sheet, teaches internationally, and writes for many publications. She team taught the undergraduate program at Kepler College. Her website, www.starcycles.com, offers downloadable lectures and articles. An investor as well as a professional astrologer, she offers a bridge between the worlds. She is chair of Alexandria iBase Library Preservation project (in collaboration with Urania Trust and Kepler) designed to preserve and catalogue astrological literature for future generations. www.alexandriaibase.org
The subject of this workshop is Eclipses and their Importance in Timing and Prediction.
Georgia has been working with eclipses and timing for many years and has a few ideas to add to your skill set that are easy to learn and install in your astrological toolkit.
Eclipses have recurring patterns returning every 18.6 years as they travel with the Lunar Nodes. Like a strand of DNA, what was learned and not learned in the last cycle, comes back again in the same place in the chart and often aspecting the same natal planets. It is during the time of the eclipse that we are in ‘shadow’ particularly if the eclipse is hitting a specific point in your chart. The question becomes how to best use that ‘shadow’ and come out of it.
