Join us at 7:30pm on Thursday June 10th at the Puget Sound Yacht Club –2321 N Northlake Way in Seattle—to elect in the new WSAA Board and welcome our final speaker for the 2009/2010 year!

The Beauty of Illusion: Venus and Neptune

It has been said that Venus is personal love and Neptune is spiritual love. Neptune is considered to be the higher octave of Venus. What is the real relationship between these two feminine planets and what do they have to do with the magic of the Golden Mean, also known as the Divine Proportion? How do they best work together? And what happens when they do not? Come on an excursion into the world of art, beauty and fantasy as we delve into the myths and practical applications of this dynamic duo — natally, in transit, and in relationships.

The purpose of the Salon is to build community by creating a “Forum for the People.” We plan to have lively discussions on topics such as Current Cycles, the Uranus Aries Point, and Astrologers as a Community Presence. We hope the Salon will also help promote WSAA in the Seattle area by connecting in the many astrologers we know are out there. Refreshments will be served. Please join us in making this a fun and revolutionary experience! Go to the Summit II Room, Saturday, 9:15 to 11:30 pm.
