Bringing the stars...down to Earth

Annual Solstice Party! @ Joyce Beers Community Center (between Panera and Aladdin's)
Dec 9 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

SDAS Annual Solstice Party

Come join us at the annual SDAS holiday and winter solstice party, featuring good food, good people, and good times! Winter solstice is the time of year when we celebrate the return of light, so it’s a time for reflection, fun, and celebration.

As is our tradition, we’ll offer a delicious feast and a short program (still being hatched) that offers a spiritual and historical perspective on the solstice season, as well as an opportunity to reflect on the passing year and set intentions for the new.

As for the menu, familiar and well-received staples such as Aladdin’s Greek salad and an array of highly tempting desserts will be on the table along with other entrées, most likely the pizza that’s been a hit for the past few years. If anyone would like to increase the selection by bringing your own gluten-free or vegan dish to share, please let us know if you plan to do so by emailing our Recording Secretary and Solstice Party Czarina, Simone Butler!

We also invite members to bring their favorite divination tools such as cards, stones, pendulum, or whatever works for you so we can take an informal peek a the new year over dessert.

This event is FREE for SDAS members in good standing, meaning your dues must be current. If you need to renew or would like to join, you can do so at the door. Members may also bring a guest for a $10 fee per guest. (We’re sorry, our reciprocity with sister organizations NCGR San Diego and SCAN does NOT extend to this event.) Each member in attendance will also receive a free copy of the “Maynard Pocket Astrologer 2017.” You must be with us in person to receive this gift, so we hope to see you there!

Arthyr W. Chadbourne: Compatibility In the Chart @ Joyce Beers Community Center (between Panera and Aladdin's)
Jan 13 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Guidance in seeking and maintaining partnerships is probably the most requested area of the astrologer's expertise. Over the years, astrologers have devised a number of techniques for providing relationship advice.

The 1970’s, with Uranus and Pluto transiting through Libra, saw an explosion of innovation in the area of relationship astrology. Linda Goodman’s Relationships Signs introduced beginners and curious novices to basic compatibility concepts using signs of the zodiac. John Townley and Rob Hand popularized the concept of composite charts, using the midpoints between two natal charts to produce a horoscope that describes the interaction between two personalities. Coalescent charts, similar to composite charts but based on harmonics, and the Davison chart, derived from the midpoint in time and location between two birth charts, offered other lenses through which to view compatibility.

However, as early as the turn of the 20th Century—more than half a century before this renaissance in relationship astrology—Arthyr Chadbourne’s grandfather developed his own style of compatibility chart. Arthyr has used his grandfather’s system for many years without fail, and now he will share it with SDAS! Whether you’d like to determine whether a potential relationship is right for you or better understand an existing partnership, you won’t want to miss this unique lecture!
