Paul Kelley: Folks Rock, Trees Talk, and People Grow Food in Labs: Unpredictable Possibilities for the Transit of Uranus through Taurus
By now, all of us have probably heard astrologers speculate about the financial aspects of the passage of Uranus through Taurus, but the focus of this lecture is on the environment and culture, two equally Taurean themes. Don’t worry! We’ll begin by having some fun interactively exploring the archetype of Uranus and the nature of Taurus, then combine them. Next, we’ll dig into the mythology describing the tempestuous relationship between the Sky God and Earth Goddess. Fully charged with the feel of this transit – and still not knowing what to expect – we’ll reconvene to examine the astrology of historical events and the births of cultural icons who thematically relate to passages of Uranus through Taurus and conclude by delving into some contemporary areas of the environment and culture that could benefit from Uranian innovation or experience the shocks of a Uranian break.
Paul Kelley, began learning about astrology in the 1990s, when he sought direction in life from a mail order ACS chart interpretation and Steven Arroyo’s Chart Interpretation Handbook. He took up a more in-depth study in 2007 after his university teaching position was cut. In the time since, he has been reading books, teaching classes and connecting with professional astrologers and astrology students. He has regularly participated in astrology conferences, including MAC/GLAC, SOTA, NCGR, and UAC, and has presented original material in person to groups and online in webinars. Paul serves as Vice President of the Philadelphia chapter of the National Council for Geocosmic Research.
