Bringing the stars...down to Earth

Simone Butler: In the Wake of the Uranus-Pluto Square @ Joyce Beers Community Center (between Panera and Aladdin's)
May 8 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

simone-sdasWhen revolutionary chaos meets evolutionary pressure, you have a recipe for major change—or disaster. Now that we’re in the final year of the Uranus-Pluto square (2011-2015), it’s time to reflect on what’s been happening both societally and personally. Much like they did during their conjunction of the mid-to-late Sixties, Uranus and Pluto have brought gay, women’s and animal rights to the fore, as well as magnifying life-or-death issues such as the actions of rogue dictators and the state of our increasingly imperiled environment.

On a personal level, relationships are breaking up or changing form, and sudden job losses or illnesses have forced people to reconsider what’s most meaningful in life. If you have planets or angles between 4 and 15 degrees of the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn), you have been irrevocably altered by this transit. Depending on how it affected your chart, you may still be picking up the pieces from various shocks and losses that occurred. Yet if you’re honest with yourself, you’ll also realize that despite their sometimes-harsh effects, Uranus and Pluto have opened you up in ways you never thought possible.

Simone Butler has been watching her clients go through this transit over the last few years, and has some harrowing tales to tell of their transformative experiences. With Venus at 11 Cancer, Simone herself has been the “poster child” for the kind of exciting yet destabilizing changes that the Uranus-Pluto transit can bring. Come join us as she shares these stories through the lens of the astrology chart, and join in the discussion of how best to work with the rest of the transit through the end of the year.

SDAS BAZAAR: Annual Astrological & Psychic Faire @ Joyce Beers Community Center (between Panera and Aladdin's)
Jun 12 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Thereader San Diego Astrological Society (SDAS) will host its annual fundraising bazaar—providing readers ready to serve you on June 12, 2015. Participants can choose one or two ten-minute readings from a selection of experienced psychics and other readers specializing in astrology, Tarot and runes. So come ready to explore your inner and outer realities at this once-a-year-only event. Have more than a peek into the “hot spots” of your present and future while at the same time helping to support SDAS—and bring a friend!

The fee is $10 per reading with a maximum of two readings for the evening (maybe more if there’s time). Price applies to members and guests alike. The SDAS library will have tables stacked with books for sale at wonderfully discounted prices. We will also have our usual offering of delicious diet busting food for refreshments along with some more sensible choices.

Take advantage of this opportunity to experience new specialties in these types of consultations you may not have explored before that may introduce you to new tools for personal insights. This event can even identify new areas you might want to pursue for future learning and study.

This is one of the ways we at SDAS are able to develop the financial resources necessary to bring you the top-notch astrological speakers that come to share their knowledge and wisdom with our group each month. We appreciate your support in making this bazaar a success and hope that you find some new insights in the process—as well as some fun.
