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.
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.
