CAA Monthly Lecture: Methods to make Horary Astrology come Alive! by Laurie Naughtin, 24th April 2022

Date: Sunday 24 April 2022

Time: 4:50 pm for 5 pm SAST (afternoon event)

Venue: Zoom meeting (room access and friendly community chat from 4:50 pm)

Fee: Please see Payment details  – everyone is welcome!

About the Presentation

The premise behind Horary Astrology is that a question, like a person, is born at a unique and specific moment.

In this talk Laurie will cover methods used in Horary. It is not simply casting a chart and reading it. The Horary Chart comes alive; it holds so much relevant information. Laurie will share examples of charts, demonstrating the use of several methods used to find the answer.

It is amazing how accurately the chart will cover the questions asked. This takes careful delineation that will uncover all sorts of interesting facts. Horary will find the answers to a specific question that comes up in our everyday life – ranging from health, career, love, weather, employees, pets, moving home and any number of situations that fill our lives.

For many centuries Horary was the mainstay of astrology practices. William Lilly used to set up his stand at fairs and tend to a long line of people with everday questions. Many of his clientele came without a birth date, let alone a time of birth.

About the Speaker

Laurie Naughtin brings her sensitivity, rich life experience and extensive knowledge to every client with whom she consults. She combines both a medical and metaphysical past with her astrology talents. Laurie is the founder of Sublunar Academy of Astrology where courses of Traditional, Horary and advanced Astrology skills are taught. She has been practising astrology since 1998.

Laurie is strong in rectification and is an internationally accredited Horary Practitioner. She has qualified in Traditional Magic and Electional Astrology taught by Christopher Warnock, Medieval Astrology by Robert Zoller and Time Rectification by Lynette Martins.

About the Presentation

ASTROLOGY & POLARITY THERAPY

The correlation of the signs and the human body in energetic terms

“The Power of Three”

In this talk we focus on the twelve astrological signs, how they are made up energetically and how they find expression in the human body.

Besides looking at the 4 element triads, we also relate the 3 astrological modalities of cardinal, fixed and mutable to the 3 different types of energy principles of positive (rajas), negative (tamas) and neutral (sattva) as known in Ayurveda and Polarity Therapy.

We also take a close look at how the human energy field is formed and how our electromagnetic field is composed of 3 different types of energy currents as described in the Polarity Therapy of Dr Randolph Stone.

CAA Presents. Pre Natal Moon and Moon cycles with Laurie Naughtin on 28 November 2021

Date: Sunday 28 November 2021

Time: 10:50 for 11 am SAST (morning event)

Venue: Zoom meeting (room access and friendly community chat from 10:50 am)

Fee: Please see Payment details everyone is Welcome

About the Presentation

Pre Natal Moon and Moon cycles in the progressed chart

Many astrologers find it imperative to look at the New Moon, also known as the Karmic Moon, before the actual birth of a client. New Moons occur and bring about rebirth after the completion of a cycle.

The Moon’s cycle in a chart reveals our approach to life, our soul’s journey, and the flow of events as we progress through the years. As the Moon is the ruler of our soul and our soul’s journey, it would be interesting to see where the new Moon is placed during the time we are in the womb. I feel it is at this is the point the soul may enter our body to begin the lessons of life our soul needs to grow.

The house, sign, and position this prenatal Moon has chosen in the pre-natal New Moon chart is our sensitive point, the lesson our soul’s journey is taking us on, the theme we face for this lifetime. The progressed Moon continues to energise the cycles of death and birth, going dark with every balsamic cycle only to rebirth with every new Moon cycle. 

Laurie will show you how to work out your prenatal new Moon and take you on your soul’s journey as you follow your Moon’s cycles through life.

Venue: Zoom meeting (link access from 10:50 am)

Fee: Please see Payment details Everyone is Welcome!

About the Presentation

The traditional art of medical astrology associates each sign of the zodiac to an area or system of the body. At the dawn of the 20th Century, the American astrologer Dr. George Carey allocated the twelve tissue salts according to the signs.

Medical Astrologers can apply these keys to balance temperaments in nativities and guide treatment in decumbiture charts. These applications require the traditional knowledge of medical astrology and how to apply the remedies appropriately. The natural zodiac offers us some simpler solutions, however.

Join Alison to discover how we can use these biochemic keys to navigate health challenges presented by Covid-19 in the pandemic, whether you are a seasoned medical astrologer or not.

About the Speaker

Alison Effting graduated as the Best All-Round Student Radiographer from the Johannesburg School of Radiography in 1982. After a health crisis in 1993 that was not resolving with conventional treatment, she came across tissue salts, transforming her life. She began biochemic studies in 1994 and, with encouragement from her mentor, started seeing clients in 1995. She also commenced color therapeutic practitioner studies in 1996, qualifying as a senior Aura-Soma Teacher in 2001, whilst concurrently completing the German Institute of Biochemic Medicine Diploma in 2000.

Alison found the tissue salts connection with astrology intriguing and began reading and attending some informal courses in the late 1990s. She began formal studies at the Rod Suskin School of Astrology in 2006, qualifying as Student of the Year in 2008.

Alison sees clients for tissue salts, Aura-Soma, and astrology consultations in Claremont, Cape Town. She is currently also presenting online courses for students in Japan that aim to integrate the understanding of the role of tissue salts within the body-mind-spirit dimension of health.

CAA Presents. Mounts and their Markings, with Jennifer Hirsh on 29 August 2021.

Date: Sunday 29 August 2021

Time: 10:50 am for 11 am SAST (please note that it’s a morning event)

Venue: Zoom meeting (link access from 10:50 am)

Fee: Please see Payment details Everyone is Welcome!

About the Presentation

The attributes of the archetypal characteristics of ancient gods were, in the old years of traditional palmistry, ascribed to fleshy pads which to a great or lesser degree contour over our palms. Qualities of the seven celestial bodies, the Moon and Sun, and the planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn, were correlated with seven individual mounts.

Today, the symbolic associations of the latter-day planets, Uranus, Neptune, and more recently Pluto have also been ascribed to and superimposed upon areas of the palms, and their associated qualities accommodated into hand reading systems.

Each individual mount is a capacitor of energy that relates to and represents the different components of our human experience; their symbologies underpin all lineal and dermatoglyphic interpretations.

In this presentation, we will learn about the positions of the mounts, and take a close look at four of the most tried and tested and loved lineal patterns that appear on our mounts; Healing Stigmata (on Mercury), Ring’s of Solomon (on Jupiter), Stars of Tears (in Plains of Mars) and the Mystic Cross (in the Quadrangle).

About the Speaker

She lives in South Coast, KZN, South Africa, where she reads people’s hands (in person or online) and teaches Chirology.

CAA Presents. Weather Astrology – An Introduction, with Karen James on 25 July 2021.

Date: Sunday 25 July 2021

Time: 10:50 am for 11 am SAST (please note that it’s a morning event)

Venue: Zoom meeting (link access from 10:50 am)

Fee: Please see Payment details Everyone Welcome!

About the Presentation

The Sun, the Moon, and Mercury are the main actors in the daily drama that unfolds across our skies, as they bring heat, moisture, and wind to our atmosphere. In addition, the Benefics bring seasonal weather to farmers and the Malefics being serious storms. It’s a fascinating tale told by the charts. Predicting devastating storms month or years in advance can be truly helpful, and weather almanacs help farmers plan their activities. One great advantage is objective feedback. We get to experience the accuracy of our predictions. Karen will present the symbols, the techniques, and some illustrative examples of weather astrology in action.

Benefits of weather astrology to astrologers in general: Firstly, Weather astrology uses mundane techniques and by shifting focus from earth and sky, we can use the same information to watch national and international world events play out. Secondly, weather presents such an archetypal picture of the planets, signs, and aspects that you can use these images to deepen your understanding of natal charts.

Karen James

About the Speaker

Karen James began exploring modern psychological astrology in 2005. She completed Rod Suskin’s Diploma in Astrological Studies in 2014 which enabled her to incorporate traditional astrological wisdom into her practice which is focussed mainly on natal, predictive, electional astrology. Carolyn Egan’s course opened the door to her understanding of Weather Astrology and she continues to deepen her studies. Weather Astrology is currently a fascinating hobby, and her ultimate aim is to predict devastating local weather in order to give her neighbours advanced warning, and produce an almanac that could be of benefit to her neighbouring farmers. Prior to finding her joy in astrology, she worked in the business world in various capacities – bookkeeping, cost accounting, and database administration. Born in the Windy City of Port Elizabeth, South Africa in July 1963 she now lives on a farm in the foothills of the Outeniqua Mountains in the beautiful Garden Route. From the west-facing deck of her home, she watches the weather unfold – from a devastating fire brought to the farm via a strong northerly berg wind in late October 2018 to the very recent gale-force winds which ripped branches from trees and wreaked havoc on neighbouring farms.
