Astrology Chat with Patrick Watson
2022/06/26
In episode 357 astrologers Patrick Watson and Chris Brennan answer some questions about astrology from listeners of the podcast, and discuss some miscellaneous astrological topics, ranging from understanding significant transits to the meaning of planets in detriment. We start the episode by talking about how we met on an astrology forum in 2005, and our experience going from being the youngest astrologers at events to becoming solidly middle aged astrologers. Then we begin with a discussion on the hidden but significant ways in which eclipses and other transits can manifest, and then eventually answer some questions from listeners. We recorded this episode together in the studio in Denver while Patrick was here to record a new course we are creating on rectification.

Transiting Eclipses in Astrology
2022/06/03
Episode 355 astrologer Chris Brennan leads a workshop on how to understand the meaning of transiting solar and lunar eclipses based on where they fall in your birth chart, with a group of astrologers sharing stories of their past experiences. This is a recording of a meeting of the Denver Astrology Group that took place on May 14, 2022 at the Mercury Cafe, a couple of weeks after a solar eclipse in Taurus, and the day before a lunar eclipse in Scorpio. It was a followup to another meeting we did in 2019 that was released as episode 215 titled Interpreting Eclipses in Your Birth Chart, where we demonstrated how to interpret eclipses based on which houses they fall in your birth chart, and then attendees shared stories of eclipses in their lives. For this meeting attendees were instructed to go back and watch the recording of that last meeting, and then come to this one prepared to share stories of how eclipses had worked out for them in the past. Here is a handout that shows what signs the eclipses fell in from 2004 through 2025: Eclipses 2004–2025 Handout This episode is available in both audio and video versions below.

Sharing Astrology Transit Stories
2022/05/06
Episode 350 is a recording of a meeting of the Denver Astrology Group where attendees shared stories about transits they experienced over the past two years since our last meeting in early 2020, hosted by astrologer Chris Brennan. The Denver Astrology Group was started in May of 2008, and held a meeting at the Mercury Cafe on the second Saturday of every month for 12 years, until the pandemic hit in March of 2020. This meeting was held on April 16, 2022 at the Mercury Cafe in downtown Denver, and it was our first meeting back in two years since the pandemic started. Because a lot has happened since that time, we thought it would be good to hold a discussion or workshop style meeting where members could share some of their stories about important transits and notable events that have happened in their lives over the past two years since we last met. Chris led the meeting and opened by talking about the inception charts of the Denver Astrology Group and the Mercury Cafe, and sharing a personal story about his own transits, and then opened it up for audience members to come up to the mic and share their story about a positive or negative transit that they experienced over the past couple of years and how it was reflected in their life. It ended up being a pretty great demonstration about how different types of transits work, what astrologers look for, as well as how to talk to people about their birth chart. We plan to resume meetings of the Denver Astrology Group on the second Saturday of each month at the Mercury Cafe.

May 2022 Astrology Forecast
2022/04/30
In episode 349 astrologers Chris Brennan, Austin Coppock, and special guest co-host Steph Koyfman look ahead at the astrology of May 2022. The astrology of May features the first part of Mercury retrograde, beginning in Gemini on May 10 and entering Taurus almost two weeks later. There is also a solar eclipse in Taurus on April 30 and a lunar eclipse in Scorpio on May 16, starting the new eclipse season with the nodes on the Taurus/Scorpio axis until 2023. There’s a tonal change as Venus, Mars, and Jupiter all move into Aries over the course of May, away from the mutable energy of Pisces. Late in the month, there is a New Moon in Gemini, although since it occurs on the second to last day of the month we are going to save most of that discussion for the next forecast. We open the episode by talking about recent world events and how the astrology has played over the past four weeks since our last forecast.

Ancient Astrology Volume 2, with Demetra George
2022/04/26
In episode 348, astrologer Demetra George discusses her new book, Ancient Astrology in Theory and Practice, Volume Two. This is the second of two volumes where Demetra delivers a comprehensive look at the practical use of Hellenistic astrology, bringing to completion a cycle that started in 1993 when she became the very first subscriber of the Project Hindsight translation project. In volume two Demetra takes a closer look at the houses and their role in interpreting a birth chart, taking special care to look at the significations of the houses throughout history, and tracing the common themes that run throughout the 2000 year long tradition. In our discussion we focused mainly on talking about the significations of the houses, and how some of the significations changed over the course of the tradition, while other stayed the same. The book was published by Rubedo Press on April 20, 2022, and can be ordered here: Ancient Astrology Volume 2 on Rubedo Press Website Ancient Astrology Volume 2 on Amazon This interview was recorded on April 19, 2022, and released on April 25, 2022.

Consultation Charts in Medical Astrology
2022/04/08
Episode 346 features an interview with astrologer Marcos Patchett about using consultation charts as a diagnostic and prognostic tool in medical astrology. A consultation chart is an astrological chart that is cast for the moment that a meeting between an astrologer and client begins. The premise is that the consultation chart will describe both the situation that the client has come to talk about, as well as its potential outcome. During the course of the episode we discuss how in the context of medical astrology consultation charts can be used as an additional tool for diagnosis, prognosis, and prediction. Along the way we also talk about horary astrology, decumbiture charts, and the nature of divination. Marcos specializes in western herbal medicine and medical astrology, with an emphasis on horary in particular: Nocturnalherbalist.com This episode is available in both audio and video versions below.
