Astrology and Liberation into Individuality: Thursday 18 July , iKhaya Lodge, Cape Town

Sun and ZodiacSPEAKER: Monica Cromhout 

DATE: Thursday 18th July, 6:30pm for 7.00pm

Everyone is unique, in every way. The work of the astrologer is to enable that individuality to disentangle itself from the masks, behaviours and expectations of our society – and to release the freedom, power, and joy of their uniqueness.

In order to fit in – to be part of the tribe, to blend with world around us – there are some common ways in which we limit and disempower ourselves. Helping our astrology clients discover these self-inhibiting ways of thinking and being is a life-changing gift to them.

Bring along your own birth-chart, and a tri-wheel chart with current progressions and transits. Also bring a clipboard to press on, and if you can, a couple of highlighters to mark your chart while we speak. If you are not able to print your own charts, send your birth details (date, place and time of birth) and I’ll print them out for you, and bring them along. Email

This is a big topic, and impossible to cover completely in the 50 minutes we are allotted by the venue. So we’ll stick to the point and cover as much ground as we can. When the time is up, it will be up. If you’re able to stay on a bit longer afterwards, we can chat informally about this topic.

About Monica Cromhout:

In 1985, when uranus opposed itself, I began a serious study of astrology. For decades before, I had studied many other things – the Bible and theology, world religions, ancient history, nursing, psychology and counselling skills, sociology, business practice, strategic planning, and more. I also worked my way through an astonishing career and other interesting life experiences. 
In 2007, when Saturn returned to itself for the second time, a massive loss and deep grief gave way to a transformation of my understanding of the the workings of the cycles of the planets. Astrology aligned with divine synchronicities. 
I was already fully occupied with my work as an astrologer, but with the new insights, there was also an acceleration of change within myself, in my world, and also in the kind of clients who come for readings. More than ever, they became my teachers. My other teacher is nature herself, with all her patterns, rhythms, cycles and archetypes. 
Life took a new direction, and everything moved to another level, including the way I work as an astrologer.
I am now – beyond all doubt – well into my senior years. With a sun newly progressed into Capricorn, I am aware of a responsibility to share what I have learned with those who will follow on, and who are interested in knowing the astrology of the shamanic path.

Test Your Astrological Skills: 18 April 2013, iKhaya Lodge

Join us on Thursday the 18th of April 2013, 18:30 for 19:00, at iKhaya Lodge for the monthly CAA meeting.

We’re trying something new for April’s meeting which should prove to be both fun and informative. The audience will be presented with a set of astrological birth charts, about five, that belong to anonymous people, along with five biographical sketches, including dates of some key events. You need to use your astrological acumen to match each chart to its correct bio.

We’ll be brainstorming this as a group, trying to find the correct matches by comparing the charts and biographical outlines.

Diane Garven and Richard Fidler will facilitate and guide the discussion.

See you there!

The New Website goes live

The CAA committee were unanimous in their enthusiasm about this event chart! Mercury is aptly in the 10th House (public information) with Neptune. Let’s face it, astrology is unusual and mysterious information. Let’s hope the Pisces and Neptune influence on Mercury is more inspiration than misinterpretation!

The Sun, Venus, Mars and Uranus are all in Conjunction in the 11th House. Wow! Yes, this site is engaging with our many members? There are boys (Mars), girls (Venus), dignitaries (Sun), and astrologers (Uranus) all enjoying our website! Hooray!

Jupiter is in the 1st House; you can learn a lot from this noble creature!
