Sex Love Crazy - The Practical Edition

Chart themes show us why we seek certain types of people: Unavailable? Cut and run? Unfaithful? Or why one person waits for “the one” and others prefer freedom, polyamory or simply to be alone. We need to know personal relationship wiring first—then we can look at simple chart compatibility techniques. To know our true nature, to understand our beloveds, and then to evolve to express our strengths is the gift of relationship astrology. 

Kay Taylor integrates evolutionary astrology with psychosynthesis, intuitive mastery, and a wealth of healing wisdom. With a thriving practice for over 35 years, her Soul Path School offers complete training in astrology and intuitive/healing practices. She is Education Director for OPA and lectures regularly at conferences & groups. Writing: Soul Path Way (2016); Conscious or Crazy (2019); chapters in The Professional Astrologer (2015) & Essential Astrology (2019).  Certified by OPA, ISAR CAP and NCGR Level II.

Those Pesky Outer Planets: Putting Them in Perspective

The discovery of Uranus in 1750 turned astrology on its head. Neptune’s emergence coincided with the first use of anesthesia. We found Pluto at the same time nuclear energy was harnessed. Clearly these planets are “transpersonal” (beyond the personal), yet have somehow overtaken the field of personal astrology, resulting in the loss of long-held principles. Can invisible planets “rule” signs? Are they “higher” vibrations of “lower” planets? How do you know when they are important in a person’s chart? Learn all this and more about those pesky outer planets!
