The part of fortune is like a vestigial tail in the astrological chart. Fortune is typically associated with wealth and money, thus when we look at the lot of fortune in the chart we think that it is our ‘lucky star’ so to speak—indicative of how we attain success and abundance. Not much is said In contemporary astrology about the part of fortune that circle with a diagonal cross. Astrologers have typically used the same formula since Lilly’s time, which in essence eliminates the counter-part for fortune the lot of Spirit. Tonight we will expose the missing lot as well.
Bring along your chart with both lots if possible and if not the one with just the part of fortune— the symbol for it is above. As always if you need your chart…send Anne an email with your data email@example.com In this talk we will look at what these lots have to say about your life. Knowing your lunar phase and whether you were born during the day or night is helpful.

The Spring 2013 issue of the Guild News–Guild News Spring 2013 – is ready for your reading pleasure (Volume 22 and Issue 2)–oh how time flies. Looking for contributions for the Summer issue due out with the Sun at 15 Leo.
Alison Price, moved to Vancouver in September 2012, and attended the Guild the first time, just in time for our AGM in October. Long story short, she was elected president for the group. Alison and I chatted both on the phone and via email about who she is and what she loves about being a professional astrologer. To begin with, Alison is a double Leo with a Scorpio Moon, and like every Leo knew her Sun sign early.
Her favourite topic in astrology is children’s charts; parents come to her to find out what educational route would suit their child the best. Along the way another major group of clients were women seeking advice about conception and fertility. As a rule, Alison, stated she was their last resort after having exhausted the main stream medical advice. That part of her practice began to grow exponentially about a decade ago, so she decided that she needed to find the tools to help her clients.
During our conversation it became apparent, that the reason she continues to work as an astrologer is because she firmly believes astrology can help her clients lead the life they were mean to have opposed to the one others around them expect them to lead.
AM: How did astrology become your career?
AP: My interest in astrology was piqued when I was at school in a dry and dusty geography class we were working on the solar system and the teacher alluded to the influences the planets have on each of us and through a reading she did of the sun signs from an astrology book she had.
I felt I was exactly as my sun sign had depicted and I began reading more on the subject. I took my first astrology class at the age of twenty and that was it, I was hooked on astrology, and have not looked back. I began reading for friends and family and then had to slake my thirst for understanding by challenging myself to interpret for other, strangers and people referred to me by those who knew me.

Sukhwinder Nizzer presents “Charts at a Glance”
This talk is intended for astrologers and new students to the subject at all levels. Having your chart handy helps to apply the basic concepts of quadrants, hemispheres, patterns, etc. Much information can be taken away by just looking at a natal chart.
The natal chart is an image of planetary energies frozen in time. We bring the planetary energies down to earth; the wheel showcases the planets within the twelve signs as we see them from this three dimensional plane. The astrological chart reveals many facets of the personality before we look at the basics.
Some key points to visual delineation are the division of the natal chart. Dividing the chart; top to bottom or left to right gives the astrologer clues on how the native reacts to his/her environment.
Note to attendees: You are invited to sent your birth data to Sukhwinder at the email address below and she will print your chart in the format suitable for this talk. (The focus is on quadrants)
About: Sukhwinder is student of astrology working towards completing her level III certification from the Canadian Association for Astrological Education.
She currently teaches beginners’ Astrology Classes and is treasurer for the Fraser Valley Astrological Guild.
Special Note: This evening we are hosting “Bring a Friend for Free” which means if you are a current paid member of the Guild you are invited to bring one friend to enjoy our presentation for free.

What’s Up, Uranus?, based on material from an upcoming book, is a look at the transit of Uranus through the twelve tropical signs over the last two centuries, focusing on biographical studies of various notable people and their respective Uranus conjunction and opposition transits to the natal Sun and/or Moon. The talk also includes a close study of key people and events during previous transits of Uranus through tropical Aries. If this story was The Wizard of Oz, then you might say Uranus is Dorothy and the tropical zodiac is a sort-of perpetual yellow brick road, replete with an overlapping series of adventures and challenges.

“The Progressed Declination or Life Graph.”
A talk by Martin Stock
Thursday, February 14, 2013 – 7:30pm – 9:30pm
(doors open at 7:00pm, all welcome)
At the premises of the International Spiritualist Alliance,
Unit 201-317 Columbia Street, New Westminster, BC, V3L 1A7.

As astrologers we generally look at Planetary Longitude, forgetting that we live in a three dimensional universe. Declinations are celestial Latitude, the other dimension of Planetary motion.
Not only are Declinations important to understand, they are the timers of the tropical zodiacal
year (our definition of 0 Aries – Sun crossing 0 declination moving North).
We will look at the change in Planetary declination by progression over the course of the life, what it means when a planet is Out Of Bounds natally or by progression, at North and South turnings as well as Equatorial (0 Declination) crossings.
We will also be examining the Progressed Declination (or Life) Graph, a tool that allows for the
highlighting of significant years in a life at a glance, as well as revealing it’s patterns and periodicities.
If you are planning to attend please bring with you a copy of your own progressed declination graph run from birth until 80, 90 or 100 years of age. For those of you whose software will not do this – you can email Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org with your birth data and he will print your progressed declination graph for you.

Rose will share her thoughts on the transits for 2013.
Beginning with a new term for the US president, more worries over the world wide economy and national security, and more push come to shove on the controversial issue of oil production and pipelines, 2013 takes us into our second year of the Uranus square Pluto transit cycle, and first full year of Saturn in Scorpio. A mutual reception between Saturn and Pluto, along with five eclipses across the Taurus/Scorpio nodal axis makes is sure to keep the intensity going strong.
