The 23rd FAA Conference will commemorate and celebrate the theme of crossroads. Astrologically the stage is set during 2020, as three major planetary pairings – Saturn/Pluto, Jupiter/Pluto & Jupiter/Saturn – are at a crossroads in their cycles:
Thematic to our conference will be the many ways astrology speaks of endings and beginnings, finales and renewals as well as the great mystery of cycles and returns, themes that congregate at the conjunction, the seed moment when the cycle is renewed. What does astrology say about the end of an era? What does it promise at this time of renewal?
All our presenters have been invited because of their unique insights, deep understanding and significant contributions to the practice of astrology. Conference lectures will cover a myriad of aspects and approaches to astrology, all bound together by the unifying spirit of the art.
Alan Clay will speak on: Dwarf Planet Astrology
"Seven new planets, plus one upgraded, one downgraded, and one candidate compliment the nine that we are already using. This lecture looks at our busy new solar system and how the new dwarf planets extend traditional astrology into a richer and more spiritual perspective. We’ll look first at Sedna (spiritual destiny) as the new outer limit of our solar system and then at the other dwarf planets in this context, studying Ceres (nurturing), Pluto (transformation), Ixion (lawlessness), Orcus (speaking out), Haumea (rebirth), Makemake (devotion), Quaoar (new perspectives), Varuna (notability) and Eris (consciousness through discord)."
