Want to learn more about Astrology but not ready to commit to regular study?
These regular events on the first Friday evening and Saturday afternoon of every month will provide you with valuable information on what is happening in the sky and how it impacts you!

As we examine the Soul Journey in our chart, we can identify our skillset and vocational orientation. This can be the Job “that pays the bill,” or perhaps a greater calling we are meant to follow. Astrology can be of tremendously help when our clients, our family, or perhaps our own selves, go through a career transition or when younger people receive the guidance early on to get on the path they are truly meant to follow.Maurice will speak about a NEW approach to understanding vocational dynamics in the chart, and will use examples to illustrate these dynamics.

The Celestial Secrets Retreat was advertised as: Not just an event, but a complete journey! This was another C*I*A retreat that I will remember as rejuvenating, stimulating and transforming, and where I had many meaningful exchanges with other astrology lovers.

Whether you are a student of astrology, hobbyist or any kind of professional, I strongly recommend meeting up with fellow tribe members IN PERSON. That might be at a meetup, class, group setting, or one of my favorites, a conference.

Conferences happen every so many months in various spots around the world. At each, a number of name and other astrologers present work that is old or new, basic or complex, and so on. It is definitely a way to fill yourself up at a metaphorical buffet of astrology knowledge, and to see what you really know.

It’s also a fantastic way to connect with people who speak and adore what some call ‘astrologese’ – the language of astrology that most others are unfamiliar with. I find astrologer conferences to be a definite mix of professional gathering meets family reunion swirled with an overnight camp sensibility. So yes there are conversations late into the nights for some. And occasionally trips to late night eateries for fries, donuts, cheezy doodles or any such. Conferences really can rejuvenate one in a few different ways. With emails, tweets, Facebooking, etc. etc. allowing the connections to take further hold and ripple across our global community.

To save money on attending these events, here’s what I’ve learned over the years:

    • Save up and purchase registration as soon as it goes on sale as that will be THE lowest price offered. Alternately, please consider volunteering at the event itself or for the hosting organization in general to earn a registration.
    • Consider sharing a hotel room (and its costs) with one or more. Fellow attendees generally hang out in the hotel lobby, its bar or the designated party suite. This makes sharing easier since hotel rooms aren’t hugely used beyond sleeping, showering and storing your stuff, since most of us are hanging out all day and night! Alternately, know that Association for Young Astrologers (AYA) frequently hosts a housing suite that a gaggle of astrologers share in a sort of camping out style bringing hotel costs down immensely. Over the years, these housing suites have fosters some rather strong bonds.
    • Make it more affordable by saving $20–50 weekly, preferably for one full year pre-event. This total amount will then cover most or even all expenses – registration, airfare, hotel, food and local transit – without breaking your bank. It can also prepare one to take advantage of airfare sales (aka better pricing) using cash vs. credit.
    • Apply for one of the annual scholarships from Association For Astrological Networking (AFAN) especially if you are a first time attendee and need some financial support. Of course, one must be an active AFAN member to apply for those. Independently run NORWAC offers special scholarships also; applications due to open during Sun in Aquarius.
