Lecture: Thursday, October 18, 7:15 PM, How to Speed Read a Chart         The computer prints the chart in seconds. You only have an hour or two to do your consultation.  Who is this person behind the chart and how do I begin to piece my understanding of the person and the chart together? Before your in-depth chart analysis, first impression judgments of the horoscope can provide the answers you need to gain a firm understanding of your client’s personal style. This lecture provides basic tools an astrologer can use to become a quick judge of a horoscope and to the person it belongs.

Workshop Part One: Saturday, October 20, 10 AM - 12:30 PM, Keywords   Vicki Smoot will teach you how pproaching a chart the first time, symbols become keywords and form sentences of our standby interpretive statements. These form the outline of our consultation, often so secure and fortressed in our confidence. In the workshop, we will look at our favorite keywords and examine if they are inclusive enough of the various expressions of the archetypes for signs and planets, touching upon other mythologies to freshen our eyes when we go to decode a chart. We also talk about listening skills, by which we always learn a few more things from these charts from the client’s narrative.                            Members $40, Guests $50 ($5 more at the door)
