UAC 2012 (Part Two): The Conference

Posted by & filed under Professional Astrology.

I went to a few sessions, but not as many as I have at past conferences. I find I don’t have a lot of patience anymore for sitting still and listening to much of anything for an hour and ten minutes; or perhaps it was all those transiting planets in Gemini. In any event, here were a few of the sessions I sat in on, along with some of my fairly shallow notes, tweets, and observations.

In 1992 I went to my first UAC conference. For the uninitiated, the United Astrological Congress is sponored by three of the biggest astrological organizations, NCGR, ISAR, and AFAN, and is usually held every three years or so.

These days, astrology blogs (not to mention Facebook accounts) abound that offer seemingly endless insights into the astrological minutiae of daily life. […]

Posted by & filed under Announcements, Pimpin' Pals, Professional Astrology.

This may seem ironic in view of my last post… but here are a few things my colleagues are up to that I thought you might find interesting. The witty, urbane, and whimsically Canadian Matthew Currie has published the first in a series of small yet delectable e-books. This one provides a thoroughly readable introduction […]
