Transits as Spiritual Process: OCT ’19

Asheville Friends of Astrology will meet Friday, October 18 at 7pm in the community room at Earth Fare Westgate to hear Mela Carreira speak on transits as spiritual process. One of the beneficial functions of astrology is as a tool for understanding our personal life cycles and spiritual development. At any given time the current planetary wheel is interacting with our own natal chart, inspiring phases of growth, stability or great change in our lived experience. In this presentation, astrologer Mela Carreira will be exploring the internal processes that accompany the transits of outer planets through our natal chart.
The movement of the outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune & Pluto) is slow, with planets staying in relationship with a particular natal sign, house, or planet for 1-3 years, giving us much to digest during their visitations. Mela will discuss each of the outer planets, their expressions in transit, and how we can learn to engage with the energies more deeply and directly as they encounter us and we encounter them.
Mela is an intuitive astrologer and internal martial arts practitioner and has been practicing astrology professionally since 2013. Her training in Taoist Alchemy at the Tao Institute with Sifu Frank Paolillo as well as work with the Akashic Records under Deborah Hellman & Nancy Ring has informed her process, perspective, and research. Mela’s emphasis as an Astrologer is on soul work, soul evolution and self knowledge. Mela offers readings, cosmic weather reports and classes online & off – for more information, please check out her website: http://www.melaluna.net

East/West Astrology: APRIL 2018

Mela.JPGMela Carreira will be our speaker and her topic will be East/West Astrology, specifically an introduction to Chinese astrology and how it can inform and blend with the Western astrological perspective.  Although these systems are quite different, a working knowledge of both can create a useful intersection for understanding the thematic qualities of a year, and the people born within it. In this talk, we will go over the basics of Chinese Astrology & Taoist Cosmology.  Focusing especially on the Chinese Year Pillar, we will weave the qualities of the 5 elements & 12 animals into the Tropical planetary picture.   We will discuss this topic looking at the energetic qualities of recent years from both perspectives, as well as through the charts of public figures.  Please feel free to send along your birth information to also be included in the discussion.

Exploring the Lunar Nodes: SEPT 2017

Mela Carreira, Exploring the Lunar Nodes – The Lunar Nodes are the spiritual nexus of any astrological chart and lend some of the most important clues to the direction and dynamic of all other elements of the chart.  Our most profound karmic processes are tied up in these points and as are the solutions to these great challenges.  In this lecture Mela will go over a few different ways to work with the nodes for self-discovery and self-understanding in our path in life (as well as those we counsel).  Mela will incorporate elements of Taoist cosmology, Draconic astrology & prenatal eclipses as well as some discussion of how the nodes work in transit, through eclipses, etc.
