Pre-Conference Workshop

Friday — March 27

1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

David Cochrane, MA and Fei Cochrane, BSE
OPTIONAL PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP ($35)
Introduction to Vibrational Astrology

Learn the basics of Vibrational Astrology: harmonic charts, midpoints, and isotraps. We will learn natal, compatibility, and forecasting with VA. If you bring a laptop computer with astrology software installed to the conference, bring it to the workshop (fully charged because there are limited electrical outlets) and you can bring up the information for your chart to see what VA reveals about you. David will use examples of planetary configurations in the birth charts of attendees to demonstrate how the interpretation is done. If you are new to Vibrational Astrology we highly recommend attending this pre-conference workshop so you can follow the ideas presented in the conference. People who are more experienced with VA can also find this workshop informative and helpful, and users of the Kepler and Sirius software will also benefit by seeing how the information is accessed in these programs.

 

 

Conference Opening

Friday — March 27

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

David Cochrane, MA
Keynote address: A New Astrology for a New Decade

David will share a humorous account of his journey in astrology, and his encounters with legends of astrology like Dane Rudhyar, Marc Edmund Jones, Charles Jayne, Zip Dobyns, and Neil Michelsen. David had only a brief meeting of a few minutes with some of these influential astrologers and others were lifelong friends. We will learn about the ups and downs, and the sorrows and joys, of one astrologer’s journey to determine what astrology is, how it works, and how seemingly unrelated events led him to Vibrational Astrology. This is a light and entertaining presentation that also includes some important life lessons and lessons about the nature of astrology.

 

Saturday — March 28

Astrological Markers for Mental and Emotional Illness

Extensive qualitative and quantitative research being conducted since the first annual Vibrational Astrology conference defines clear combinations of planetary configurations that incline a person to various mental and emotional issues. We now have much stronger evidence that there is a kind of cosmic code similar to a genetic code that inclines a person to specific emotional and mental problems when exacerbated by childhood trauma or neglect. We will learn about the latest finds and discoveries that have helped define more clearly and precisely what the astrological markers for mental and emotional illness are.

 

11:00 AM - 12:15 PM

Bill Meridian
Predicting Financial Trends with Vibrational Astrology

A very detailed and extensive research analysis of changes in market prices using Vibrational Astrology reveals that there are consistent planetary configurations that predict price changes with much better than random probability. This lecture provides compelling evidence that astrology really does work and can be used in practical ways to assist in making financial decisions. The research methodology that is employed involves validating ideas on new data and not just fitting theories to existing data. This is a huge step forward for financial astrology.

The Moon’s Nodes in Vibrational Astrology

The Moon’s Nodes have not played a major role in Vibrational Astrology for many years. However, the latest research has made great progress in understanding how we can use the Moon’s Nodes in Vibrational Astrology. Many of the ideas about the Moon’s Nodes in Evolutionary Astrology and Vedic Astrology are confirmed but with new additional insights and also new insights into the Draconic Zodiac, which is a zodiac based on the Moon’s North Node as a starting point.

 

3:45 PM - 5:00 PM

David Cochrane, MA
How to Predict Accidents

Ongoing research of accidents over the past several years has produced startling results. The accident research continues since the previous Vibrational Astrology Conference and we have learned more about exactly what the astrological configurations are that make a person inclined to be in an accident and the transits involved that occur at the time of the accident. With each new study the intricate and beautiful tapestry of vibrational cosmic patterns is more clearly revealed and in this lecture David will share with us the current state of the art in predicting accidents. Among other things, the research shows that, just as many astrologers suspect, Mars and Uranus are involved in accidents but in ways that you may find surprising.

 

7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Formal Evening Banquet
Sharing with Friends

Periodically throughout the evening you are invited to come up to the front, take the microphone and share something with the rest of us. Perhaps it is a personal story, a poem, or anything else. Let’s open our hearts and get to know one another a bit more. This will be fun! I am sure there will be a few surprises!

Relax and enjoy an evening of good food and fun. This is a formal event so please dress up. No flip flops, shorts, tank tops, or jogging attire allowed.

 

Sunday — March 29

9:00 - 10:15 PM

Gisle Terry, MFT
Transits and Progressions that Trigger Suicide, and Psychotic and Neurotic Episodes

When we identify the planetary configuration that makes a person vulnerable to have an emotional or mental illness, we have also identified the configuration that gets triggered when a person’s tendency to have this problem is likely to flare up into a full-blown psychotic episode or even a suicide. We will look at examples of how these planetary configurations get triggered in the charts of clients and famous people. We are able to consistently apply these astrological methods and in this presentation we will show the results of applying these ideas to all cases that have been studied (no cherry picking of data).

 

11:00 AM - 12:15 PM

Fei Cochrane, BSE, TACC
Minor Planets and Asteroids in Vibrational Astrology

By studying “Super Ceres People”, “Super Chiron people” and other people who have the Sun or Moon conjunct a minor planet or asteroid, we can see that these Super Minor Planet People have consistent themes in their lives that express the qualities of the planets. By not cherry picking the data, we are more certain that what we have discovered really works, and we are able to apply these ideas in our consultations with confidence. Some of our findings confirm popular ideas but some of the findings give a new twist to our understanding of Ceres, Chiron, and other celestial bodies. This opens another door to refining our understanding of the astrology chart.

The Meaning of the Elusive Quincunx in VA

The quincunx aspect is often interpreted as an aspect that is awkward and where the two planets tend to work in a way that needs adjusting and often can result in illness or other problems. The exact manner in which the quincunx operates is somewhat elusive and has been difficult for many astrologers, including Vibrational Astrologers, to clearly articulate. A thorough research study followed by applying these ideas in consultations has shed new light on how the quincunx operates in our lives and how we interpret the quincunx aspect in both the natal chart and in harmonic charts.

 

3:45 PM - 5:00 PM

David Cochrane, MA
Vibrational Astrology Interactive Experience

David will enter the birth data of attendees and show a midpoint structure or a harmonic chart of the attendee and explain how it is interpreted. This will not be a reading or consultation but rather a demonstration of how Vibrational Astrologers look at birth charts and interpret them. You will learn about how Vibrational Astrologers interpret the meaning of the planets and the way that planets combine in aspects and midpoint structures. By experiencing how a Vibrational Astrologer does this, you can see in a concrete and realistic way how the ideas are used in actual consultations.

 

Sunday evening, for those who are staying until Monday, free time to meet each other, go out for dinner, etc.

 

 

Fun Day

Monday — March 30

If you would like to stay an extra day for some fun, relaxation, more learning and sharing, join us! We can accommodate 50 people so let us know if you would like to join us on Monday and the first 50 people to respond are welcome.

Informal Gathering
We meet at the Avalon School.

It’s about a 15-minute drive from the conference hotel. There is a classroom and David will answer questions in an informal gathering to explore anything that you are interested in Vibrational Astrology.
