“Reading makes a full man, meditation a profound man, discourse a clear man.” ~Benjamin Franklin
I love the format of a salon to discuss the astrology of our times. All invited regardless of : knowledge/viewpoint/belief system/opinion. The only per-requisite is that you practice non-violent communication, kindly. Differing viewpoints are encouraged.
The study of astrology balances out our brain because it requires one to be both logical & intuitive. To appreciate Astrology one must also have an eager yet discriminating mind.
Having teachers is important. Not because they know it all. But, more because, the subtleties of the science can only be learned by dialogue, discourse, and debate and that’s what happens with gifted teachers and group classes. The discussions are invaluable to one’s learning. Socrates & Buddha lived during the same “time”. That said, the greatest teacher of all is your own life experience.
Astrology cannot be learned or understood in a vacuum. In order to be an accomplished astrologer, one must learn about other sciences too. Philosophy, ethics, psychology, history, economics, education, medicine, metaphysics, and spirituality are all related topics that require study time…..if one is to apply astrology to human life. That said, intuition, creativity, awareness of the psychic realms, also add to an astrologer’s toolbox.
With this in mind, if astrology is interesting to you, please join us or at least add your name to the list of interested persons. It doesn’t matter what you know or don’t know about astrology. Everyone is invited to attend and anyone can suggest a topic for a future meeting. The only rules are those that help us have good quality conversation observing the guidelines of non-violent communications and we’ll discuss all that at the start of our gathering.
