SOTA 12 July 2018

Hi Everybody,

I’m back. And yes, there are a few announcements….
First of all, if you haven’t reserved your hotel room, it’s time. Call The Millennium at 1-800-323-3331 and tell them you’re with SOTA to get the discounted conference rate. And if you are a speaker, make sure your name is on that reservation, no matter who books it. We have only a small block of rooms, and it is looking like we may get a full house. If you call me up the week before and say you need a hotel room, I may not be able to help. So do us both a favor and book now!

Secondly, for those of you who are planning to ship books or other materials to us, note that they should be sent to the hotel — not to Diane. And they should be sent to coincide with your arrival. Otherwise, the hotel may charge you for storage. It will be your responsibility to get the books to Diane in the trade room so she can do a count, etc.

Third, I currently have two tables left in the trade room. If you are still on the fence, it’s time to get off and book — because when they are gone, they are gone. And yes, we are open to anything other than jewelry, books, and software.

Luncheon Lectures – Selling Out!

Fourth, as you will see from the flyer, Julie Simmon’s luncheon lecture is now SOLD OUT. And this just in — Michael Barwick’s lunch lecture is now sold out as well. There are still 3 or 4 openings in Kathy Rose’s luncheon lecture, but I am fully expecting this to also be sold out by September 21 if not before. And at this point it looks like all or most of the Pre and Post lectures could do likewise. So book now and guarantee yourself a space.

Speaking of Pre and Post stuff, John Green’s Post still has room. Here’s the blurb again:

John Green – Post Conference

Practical Synastry – Making Synastry Work for You and Your Client’s Relationships

Synastry gives us a wealth of information about the relationship between two people, but how can we use it effectively with our client’s or our own relationships. In this practical workshop we explore how to use the natal chart and synastry to help us understand relationships and make them work.

You don’t really want to miss this, do you? No? Then why not sign up now and guarantee yourself a space while there is still room.

Also note that John is also lecturing Saturday on Mars. A very apt topic for this time. Here’s the blurb:

Gods of War – Reclaiming the Mars Warrior

Will, drive, aggression, overt masculinity. These words often have negative connotations in our modern world. The warrior has been demoted to a safe fictional character or demonised in war. In this re-evaluation of Mars we look at its importance to us all and the problems arising if we ignore it.

And if you’re going to be there on Saturday to hear John, you may also want to here Franco on Birth Time Confirmation Techniques. Here’s the blurb on that one:



The birth time is the difference between giving an accurate reading and a reading whose timing is all off. You need to verify that your client’s birth time is actually an accurate representation of them which will give you accurate timing. In this workshop, you will learn the various time travel techniques to zero in a birth time.

Franco is developing a solid reputation as a researcher. This will not be just more fluff, though knowing Franco it will be entertaining. Do check it out…

And on that note, I will wish you a good week before I dissolve into a puddle. Hard to believe that 3 short months ago we were complaining about the cold, isn’t it??? Ah…well…Have a good two weeks anyway…Yes, two weeks, because next week I’ll be in Ann Arbor with our registrar and our bookseller.
