Monthly Lecture—Friday, November 16, 2012
From 7:00 to 8:45 p.m. at in the Lunds Community Room
at 1450 W Lake Street—Minneapolis, MN 55408
Ben Dykes talks about:
Basic Traditional Chart Interpretation
Ben Dykes will present several techniques and ideas for interpreting a natal chart in a traditional way.
There will be a little theory to get us going, but the evening will focus on practical chart interpretation and prediction,
using house rulers, dignities, and profections (an annual predictive technique).
Even if you are not a traditionalist, your chart reading will become more enhanced, concrete, and accurate.
We will use the seven traditional planets and whole-sign houses.
This talk will be especially suitable for people attending the weekend workshop, but will be helpful for anyone else, as well.
Please bring a copy of a chart. Of course, it will be best to have a «traditional» chart to work with.
Benjamin Dykes, PhD (Philosophy) is a leading medieval astrologer and translator.

Traditional Natal Chart
We will create the appropriate traditional natal chart with «whole sign» houses for you, if—prior to the meeting—you'll
submit your birth data to charts@STARSinMN.org.
Your traditional birth chart will wait for you at the meeting. All data will be kept confidential.
