Rey dela Merced ~ “Shedding Light on Aversion” ~ Saturday November 17th 2018 @ 1.30pm ~4.30 pm


Aversion from the Latin “aversus” meaning turned away.  Planets have greater access to its resources, it has control, knowledge, consistency in what it produces and can protect its domicile when in can “see”  (aspect by whole sign aspect) its domicile or the sign/house it rules.  But if it is averse then there is “darkness” (unconsciousness), ignorance of what it going on, lack of control, inconsistency, and lack of communication.

Knowing the places of aversion in our chart will allow us to become more aware and conscious and thus shed light, to that area of our life.  The use of profections, solar revolution (solar return) in timing the activation of the issues/challenges that aversion brings about will be covered in the lecture.  The traditional use of Lots, – the Lot of Fortune and Lot of Marriage in particular – what happens when the lord of the Lot is averse to the Lot will be demonstrated.

How to use the graphic ephemeris in timing profection, solar revolution and transits.

I will be using celebrity and client charts as examples to show the practical application of the various concepts.
