by Jeffrey Brock, Astrologer
The fun in learning astrology is to be able to interpret charts of people you know and people you don’t know yet. Studying the signs, planets and houses is the basics…and that is essential. Calculating the chart from scratch is a most valuable skill and one that is quickly being lost with the popularizing of accurate computer astrology programs. All of that is great…but where are you going to go to focus on the ART of interpreting charts?
The students in this upcoming series (that’s YOU possibly!) will be given an opportunity to bring charts of people you know and have the class and you read the chart together. This is a real blast for everyone! After each chart has been read, the person who brought the chart will have a few minutes to tell us all how we did…and you will be amazed! Please come to this great class! I’m sure you’ll have a wonderful time and you’ll also make some new friends as well.

The headline across the WGN television network page about their new television show Salem,”Coming to Haunt You: In Salem, witches are real, but they are not what they seem. Count down the hours to the series premiere of SALEM this Sunday at 10/9c”.
The premier is generating positive buzz from critics in the entertainment industry. Clarke Wolfe from Nerdist writes, “It would appear that Salem is a period piece told with a straight face and determined to push the limits; This horror fan couldn’t be more excited.”
But will happen when modern minority faiths such as Wicca and religious Witchcraft are conflated with the worst stereotypes and caricatures of evil and dark imaginings? Some Pagans are deeply concerned that the fictional portrayals of “witches” will reinforce negative misperceptions of real Wiccans in our society. Here in Florida, uninformed views have lead to discriminatory acts of ousting Wiccans from fraternal organizations as well as hate crimes and shootings targeting Wiccans.
Researchers from Brandeis University and the University of Tromsø, Norway have released a follow-up survey investigating the practices of modern Pagans. The authors state that, “Data from this survey will be used for writing books, articles and doing presentations on contemporary Paganism. All answers are anonymous. Your participation is voluntary.”
If you wish to participate and contribute to scholarly research on the neo-Pagan community, take the 32-question follow-up survey here.
Josh Gore, reporter for Florida Keys News–Islamorada/Key Largo Free Press, published a story on April 2nd titled, “Authorities: Dead animals could be linked to Santeria,” after dead animals were found in a canal in the Port Largo Villa’s:
More than two dozen birds, including chickens, and at least one goat body was found in the Port Largo Villa’s canal, according to property officials.
“This was really freaking out our guests,” said manager Marcy Myers.
Two weekends in March, Myers was alerted by patrons that animals’ bodies were floating up near the docks. In one instance, the body had been placed in plastic bags. She suggested the actions could be linked to Santeria, a religious practice that employs the sacrifice of live animals.
Is this truly the actions of Santería practitioners? Many sources, including this BBC article about the Lukumi religion, state that animal sacrifices are typically consumed.
Check out a recent post on the Wild Hunt blog about blood sacrifice in the Neo-Pagan and polytheist communities.
The Wild Hunt has published an article by Heather Greene detailing the latest developments about the status of the Frosts at this coming Beltane Florida Pagan Gathering Festival.
The Board of Florida Pagan Gathering has reversed their decision about inviting the Frosts.
Ann Marie, President of the board of directors of the Temple of Earth Gathering (TEG), stressed the need for community healing in a final statement:
At the coming festival, in place of workshops that will now never be presented, we instead will attempt to hold some workshops and rituals focused on healing the community, because the pressing need right now is for us all to remember we are about one another, and our collective care for our community.
Registration for Florida Pagan Gathering is available online. This year’s headliners include Janet Farrar, Gavin Bone and Orion Foxwood, among many others. Musical guests include Murphy’s Midnight Runners.
