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.


Rey graduated with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering at the University of St. Thomas, Manila, Philippines. He also holds several certificates in industrial design and automation.

He completed Robert Zoller’s Medieval Astrology and Chris Brennan’s Hellenistic Astrology courses. He has also achieved CAAE’s Level 3.

Astrology Toronto Annual General Meeting 2018 Notice


The date of the next Astrology Toronto Annual General Meeting is July 14, 2018 starting at 1:30 p.m., location to be determined.

NOTE: You must be a paid-up member to attend this event.

If you do not know your current membership status, contact our membership secretary
 Melina Crane via our email address:

Please RSVP if you plan on attending.

When the location has been chosen, those who RSVP will be contacted with the location information. You will receive a reminder of this meeting closer to the date.

Election Notice and Call for Nominations

At this time, there are 10 members of Astrology Toronto Inc.  willing to serve on the Board of Directors.

The Astrology Toronto Bylaws specify in article 10 that:

“Elections for vacant positions on the executive committee of Astrology Toronto Inc. shall be held annually, typically at the AGM, as required.”

However at this time there are no vacancies.  The following are directors of the Board and their titles and a new candidate:

Joan Bennell Co-President, Vice-President

Julie Simmons Co-President, Vice-President

Jennifer Samuels Secretary*

Anne-Marie MacDonell  Treasurer

Elena Picceli Member-at-Large

Melina Crane Member-at-Large

Marilyn Mazzotta Member-at-Large

Christine McDonald Member-at-large

Jane Sloan Member-at-Large

Charm Torres (new)



While our Constitution and the requirements of Government Services Ontario require that we have a President and Vice-President, at the last Election we opted for non-hierarchical form of governance hoping to move towards a more collaborative way of working.  This has worked well and we hope to continue in that vein.

If Nominating by Email

Nominations must be seconded to be valid, and the person nominated must validate that in fact, they want to run for the position.

Thus for an email nomination to be valid, there are three emails required:

  • One from the person making the nomination
  • One from the person seconding the nomination
  • One from the person being nominated

Of course, all the persons involved in a nomination must be paid-up members.

At this point there are no vacancies on the Board, but some may appear by July 14th

The Executive will be elected at the Annual General Meeting.

Nominations will also be accepted from the floor of the meeting.

*Note: The position if Secretary has lately become available

If you are interested in serving on the Board or Executive, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact us at
