Electing Decent Business Charts
When setting up a business chart, what do you do? Do you just step into the process blindly, or do you have a plan that saves you and your client time and money? This lecture features some key components leading to an optimum outcome. Like any other thing in life, you have to have a structure in which to work, fully aware that everything isn't perfect, either. Georgia Stathis, practicing since 1977, walks you through this process.

Is the Consultation Space Sacred?
Where do astrologers go when they read a chart? A sacred place? An insightful place? What are the benefits of being in such a space? This lecture explores the phenomenon of the consultation space as described by astrologers I interviewed in 2015-16, all of whom have twenty-five years or more experience as professional astrologers.

NOTE: as this is ongoing work regarding how astrologers investigate what it is we do, I have also included the published paper of previous work I have done in the field on how astrologers read charts.

Key Techniques I Use

I have spent over 58 years as an astrologer. In addition to my extensive background as an astrologer (consultant, teacher, programmer, author, and theorist), I have run a Tibetan Buddhist dharma center since the 1980s, been to Tibet a number of times, and have practiced Vajrayana Buddhism and meditation for over 40 years. These two disciplines, astrology and dharma, reflect on one another.

I would like to pass on some of what I have learned through astrology to others. Since I am getting older, this seems like a good opportunity to do that. Over the years I have taught classes, spent years making a living as a counselor, written many books, and more. Spend an hour with me as I share with you what I feel is important in our field to know.

The Consultation Chart is a Great Tool!
The consultation chart is a useful tool to understand the situation and process a client is in when he/she seeks advice or therapy. You can use it in every situation, no matter if the client wants a psychological or business advice and therapist can even see the problem and the development of the therapy in this chart. The consultation chart is in a fascinating way interwoven with the birth chart and ones transits and progressions.

Decent Exposure – Right Timing
Whether running a business or building a practice, good branding is vital. Faye shows how astrology can provide inspiration for designing and creating a powerful presence on websites and social media. Timing is a crucial element in organizations too. While researching her MA in Cultural Astronomy and Astrology, Faye developed her ‘Company Clock’ using the 72-year Huber Age Progression. This model has proven to be an excellent tool for determining business timing, including for branding.
Faye is publishing a new book on business astrology in 2018. Attached is a form to preorder at a special price. Faye is also offering a reduced price on skype sessions - fill out that form if you are interested.
