Astrological Lecture—Chiron:  The Shock that Heals
Anne Beversdorf


April 27, 2009;  7:30 PM;  Austin, Texas

Chiron New Center


 …at the PlumBlossom Wellness Center, 1700 S. Lamar, Austin, TX.   There is NO CHARGE to attend this lecture.

     Chiron is a comet, trapped in our solar system and orbiting with the rest of the planets.  Its astrological significance is about reaching the meaning, and ultimately the healing of some of our biggest life traumas.   With Chiron prominent in her own astrological chart, Anne has studied these patterns for nearly 20 years.  This lecture will help you understand some of your own life cycles.
     Additionally, the United States is heading for a major Chironic Moment at the end of May this year.  Learn what to expect as we encounter this surreal, shocking, and potentially healing event in our mass culture.
    Again, it’s Monday 4/27/09, 7:30 pm, PlumBlossom Wellness Center, 1700 S. Lamar, Austin, TX.

1.  Watch May 29-30 for another “shock that heals” as Neptune and Chiron both retrograde at 26 Aquarius and Jupiter sits at the same degree to watch over us.  For more, check this blog and look for the podcast of the April 27 Chiron lecture!

2.  Venus went direct on Friday 4/17.   Personal finances may improve, national numbers will tumble again.       3. Watch for Mercury RX in its own sign, Gemini, starting May 7.  More than the usual number of communication snafus for 3 weeks.


Quick Links…



A few quick announcements

1.  I am working on a project about anomolous experiences of time–things like deja-vu in a Huge way; inexplicably short travel times (Austin to Dallas in 2.5 hours instead of 3.5-4.5),  experiencing more than one “time” at a time, and other “time unhinged” phenomena.   If you have had weird time experiences, PLEASE let me know about them!  Email me at [email protected]

2.  For any of you near Austin, TX, I will be giving a free lecture on Chiron on April 27.  Chiron is a comet, trapped in orbit in our solar system, and its astrological function helps us find meaning in our personal suffering.  We are headed toward a big Chironic Moment as a nation on May 29-30.   The lecture will be at the Plumblossom Wellness Center on South Lamar, 7:30 pm,  Monday, April 27. No charge to attend.  (The reading will be recorded and available on my site, technology gods willing.)  

3.  Two parts of a 4-part article series are now available.  This is the written-out version of the March lecture at Institute of Noetic Sciences, Austin, where the recording didn’t “take”.  You can find Part One here, and Part Two here.    
Happy Stars to You,

Good Astro-Timing for Consultations
Right now, alarm clockVenus, the planet of values (including money and love–BIG values for most of us), and Pluto, the obsessional Phoenix-like planet of meltdown and rebirth, are in tight and intense conflict.  You may be experiencing power struggles, romantic upheavals, or financial shocks, and while you’re still reeling from these, we’ve got Mercury going retrograde, then an eclipse, and then the big Chiron/Neptune Jupiter thing at the end of May.  This is an astrological obstacle course if I’ve ever seen one, and you can either plan your strategy or cross your fingers and hope that you’ll manage to figure out the lesson from this confusion.   This is an Excellent time for a consultation! 

If you’d like a reading, learn more here, or just email me at [email protected]

Venus Disappears during Meteor Shower 04.17.2009

April 17, 2009: Picture this: It’s 4:30 in the morning. You’re up and out before the sun. Steam rises from your coffee cup, floating up to the sky where a silent meteor streaks through a crowd of stars. A few minutes later it happens again, and again. A meteor shower is underway.

One of the streaks leads to the eastern horizon. There, just above the tree line, Venus and the crescent Moon hover side by side, so close together they almost seem to touch. Suddenly, Venus wavers, winks, and disappears.

All of this is about to happen–for real.

On Wednesday morning, April 22nd, Earth will pass through a stream of comet dust, giving rise to the annual Lyrid meteor shower. At the same time, the crescent Moon and Venus will converge for a close encounter in the eastern sky. Viewed from some parts of the world, the Moon will pass directly in front of Venus, causing Venus to vanish.

The source of the meteor shower is Comet Thatcher. Every year in late April, Earth passes through the comet’s trail of debris. Flakes of comet dust, most no bigger than grains of sand, strike Earth’s atmosphere traveling 110,000 mph and disintegrate as fast streaks of light. A typical Lyrid shower produces 10 to 20 meteors per hour over the northern hemisphere, not an intense display. Occasionally, however, Earth passes through a dense region of the comet’s tail and rates increase five- to ten-fold. In 1982, observers counted 90 Lyrids per hour. Because Thatcher’s tail has never been mapped in detail, the outbursts are unpredictable and could happen again at any time. The probabilities are highest during the dark hours before sunrise on April 22nd.

The Moon-Venus conjunction is pure coincidence. It has nothing to do with the Lyrid display other than insurance. Even if the shower fizzles, the sight of a 9% crescent Moon located so close to brilliant Venus is guaranteed to make your day.

Most observers will see only a close gathering of the two bodies. People in western parts of North America are favored with more–a full-blown eclipse or “occultation.” Around 5 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time, Venus will disappear behind the mountainous rim of the Moon and reappear 60 to 90 minutes later.

Do not worry if the sun rises during the occultation, because Venus and the Moon are bright enough to see in broad daylight. Locate the pair before sunrise, so you know where they are, then follow them up the brightening sky using binoculars or naked eyes. Some people say Venus and the Moon are most beautiful when surrounded by morning blue.

On Wednesday morning, April 22nd, you can see for yourself.
