SOTA 27 March 2018

Hi Everybody,

Well, the bad news is that the first registration cut-off has come and gone. However, we are trying to keep SOTA affordable, so the increases to Deluxe and Full packages are small, as are increases for luncheon lectures. There have been no increases to Pre or Post Conference fees as yet. So while we’re a bit more expensive, you’re still getting a pretty good deal. And we actually exceeded our target for early bird reg in terms of numbers. However, most of our reg at this point is from our wonderful and committed regulars.

And while we love our regulars, it would be nice to add some new attendees to the mix. And while I am including some new people in these mailings, I simply don’t know everybody. So could you do me a favor? Please let people know about SOTA. Share SOTAnews. Put a link on your website. Tell your students. Yes, many may be going to UAC, but some may not be for one reason or another. And they may be happy to find a little gem of a conference like SOTA. So please spread the word!

Meanwhile, I am happy to report that Kelly Surtees’ Pre-Conference is filling very rapidly. In fact, if it keeps filling at this rate, it could actually sell out. That said, right now there’s room and the rate hasn’t gone up, so if you want to be sure you have a space, you might want to register for this one now. It could very well be full by the time you get to the conference with plans to register at the door. I’ll keep you posted, but consider yourself forewarned! Oh, and just in case you can’t remember what she’s presenting, here’s the blurb again:

Kelly Surtees

The Power of Prediction, Pre-Conference

Discover how to time major life changes with astrology. Kelly will show you how to combine forecasting techniques like transits, progressions and firdaria, and guide you through the best ways to share your insights with clients. What do you say? How do you say it? Includes info on Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn.As you can see, this is going to be an extremely useful presentation, regardless of whether you’re a modern or a traditional astrologer. Don’t miss out! And don’t forget that Kelly will also be presenting on Friday. Here’s a description of that 2-hour talk:

What Should I Do With my Life?

What houses, planets and aspects really describe and define career? Where and how do we find life direction in the chart? Are there any special planetary phases or configurations to consider? Join Kelly for a deep dive into career and life direction through astrology.

Career is one of those topics that every consulting astrologer needs to have a good handle on. This presentation will offer you a good place to start!

Michael Barwick

Huber Aspects and Their Patterns, Luncheon Lecture

If you’re planning on heading to Michael Barwick’s luncheon lecture on Huber Aspects and Their Patterns, please bear in mind that as of today that one is 50% filled. We will not be able to add seats and this will not be recorded. So your best bet is to sign up soon, because I have a feeling space will be extremely limited, if, in fact, it is available at all come June.

Call for Vendors

I would also note that this is our first call for vendors. I’ve had a few suggestions already and will be contacting those people, but if you know someone with a good product, let me know. Our people tend to like oils, crafts, and originals of all types. If you know someone who might be a fit for our trade room, please have them get in touch with me. We’d love to have a good variety of product.

And on that note, I’ll wish you a good week and a happy Easter or Passover.
