LECTURE: Solar Arcs: The Sun’s Courtiers
Friday, May 11, 2018
7:30 – 9:45 pm
Joyce Beers Community Center, Hillcrest
Over the thirty-four years that I’ve been a professional astrologer, many of my students’ most frequently asked questions have been about solar arc directions:
“How do solar arcs differ from secondary progressions? How should I talk about them in a reading?”
“There are so many techniques for interpreting the ongoing dynamic events that affect a birth chart . . . do solar arcs matter enough to mention?”
They do indeed. Like the legendary Knights of the Round Table, solar arcs are meant to serve the “King” of the chart, the Sun. Without a healthy and energized Sun, it can be difficult for the rest of the planets to reach their full potential, because the Sun represents your sanity, your vitality, your “executive function,” and what a psychologist would call your ego: the gravitational center of your psyche. Therefore, whatever serves the Sun can strengthen your sense of identity and boost your continuing growth into your truest and most fulfilled self.
To explore this little-understood predictive technique with me, just bring your birth chart, with its current solar arcs if possible. (If you forget your solar arcs, don’t worry; there’s an easy “quick and dirty” way to calculate them that doesn’t require a computer.) You’ll leave with new ways not only to help yourself and your clients stay sane and centered in an increasingly stressful world, but also to access and develop the radiantly creative, pro-active solar energy that is everyone’s birthright.
