Secondary ProgressionsSaturday, June 24, 2016:

Joe Polise Luncheon Workshop —10 am to 5 pm:
Memories in Future Tense: Secondary Progressions and Your Place in Time

Secondary Progressions are a symbolic and very personal astrological “forecast” technique based in the linking of a “day to a year” starting with the birthday. Thus, the secondary progressions for a person who is 20 years old would derive from planetary positions found 20 days after the birthday. We can see our secondary progressions as depicting an individualized set of transits that are somehow “coded” into your being to be lived out in terms of your own ever changing style, needs, and talents.

In this lecture, the main areas of discussion are:

– What is the nature of Secondary Progressions as an astrological technique and what distinguishes it from other forecasting tools, like Transits and Solar Arcs?
– What are the distinctive features of Secondary Progressions , and what an astrologer can identify as the interpretive focal points of the system?
– The Secondary Progressed Moon and its 8 phases and how it acts as a highly useful forecasting centerpiece.

A well known chart will be presented to ground this important symbolic technique, with emphasis placed on an effective joint use of Ephemeris and modern chart calculation software.

Note that this is a full-day workshop and includes catered lunch —10:00 am to 5:00 pm
