Art of Predictive Astrology Conference
After centuries of meticulous observation, ancient astrologer-astronomers gradually produced accurate models of heavenly motions. Astrology became the Queen of the Sciences, as its beautiful and orderly patterns allowed the prediction of indicated events far in advance. As Western astrology developed, many timing methods were used to move the chart of an individual through time or to study historical change against the background of long-term planetary cycles.
Celebrate the AFAs 75th anniversary with an array of internationally acclaimed experts who will explain and demonstrate a variety of predictive techniques in natal, mundane, and electional charts. Each day will showcase a group panel with audience participation, to discuss the thorny philosophical and ethical issues surrounding meaningful prediction, humane counseling, and the range of personal choice. Bill Meridian (Vienna) and Deb Houlding (England) will make rare American appearances, joining Shelley Ackerman, Ben Dykes, and Demetra George, to create a diverse and dynamic faculty exploring the art of prediction.
