Hello everyone! I hope that the holiday season is treating you well and that you’re savoring the last bit of Sagittarian energy before we head into proper Saturn Season! Today’s update is two-pronged, since in addition to the official announcement of our upcoming Immersion Weekend with Demetra George we also want to extend an invitation to join some of us here at the SFAA in a discussion about our future.
On January 5, 2020 at 12:30pm a few of us will be meeting at Brio Tuscan Grille in Hallandale Beach. The purpose of this brunch meeting is to brainstorm future endeavors, as well as put out a call to all those who wish to help in some capacity with the work at hand. While stabilizing the next phase of the SFAA it was certainly helpful to just have a few hands in the pot, but the intention moving forward for the organization was one of collaboration and sharing. If you’d like to help in any way, or even if you just want to come hang with some awesome astro-peeps, feel free to shoot us an email at SFAA411@gmail.com and let us know to add you to the reservation!
Now, to the juicy bit that I’m sure you’ve all been waiting for!
The South Florida Astrological Association would like to cordially invite you to:
A Weekend with Demetra George
SATURDAY MORNING LECTURE (February 8, 2020): Asteroid Goddesses 2020
The asteroid goddess are voices of the feminine. This richly illustrated presentation charts their role in the key events of the Women’s Movement since their discovery in the early nineteenth century. Moving into the present era of MeToo, let’s see which political candidates, leaders and other influential people are most attuned to advocating for the concerns of Ceres, Pallas, Juno, and Vesta.
SATURDAY AFTERNOON/SUNDAY WORKSHOP (February 8-9, 2020): The Houses: Their Strengths, Joys and Ancient Mystery Teachings
Ancient astrologers understood their art as a mystery tradition and encoded the spiritual significance of each house into its name. Discover the secret doctrines associated with each place of life, such as the third house Goddess signifying ritual and sacred rites, the second house Gate of Hades as injunctions around the misuse of wealth, and the ninth house God as the home of astrologers and prophets.
Gain deeper insight into meanings of the houses as they are derived from the planetary joys and discover the elegant substructure that links planets to houses and sect rejoicing.
