AUSTRALIA LECTURE TOUR
|I had a simply wonderful time touring Australia in 2010, speaking on Chiron, Centaurs, bodies out past Pluto, and even Minor Planets. The people were absolutely wonderful, and I fell in love with the country (and with a woman in particular, named Lynette, who lives around Freemantle in Western Australia.) So in August 2011 I moved there, and Lynette and I were married on 5 November of that year.|
Was Chiron involved when I met Lynette? Well, transiting Chiron conjunct Neptune were closely trine both her Sun and mine, as well as her Neptune; transiting Pluto was still in orb of the conjunction to my natal Chiron; and the Venus/Mars conjunction in Scorpio squared both Lynette's Chiron in Aquarius and my Venus in Leo. So I guess you could say Chiron was involved. And when we were married, Chiron was almost exactly sextile my natal Chiron, and closely trine her Venus and my Vesta.
How I learned to stop assuming, and begin searching. A brief bio of Zane B Stein. What exactly was the Association for Studying Chiron? What brought me to write the book, "Essence and Application: A View From Chiron", and where you can get a copy. (Oh, and my photo, too!)
|CHIRON'S DISCOVERY CHART|
Chiron was discovered November 1, 1977. Take a look at the chart for the moment.
|WHAT CHIRON IS - ASTRONOMY:|
What exactly is Chiron, comet or asteroid? Where is it in our solar system? How long is it's orbit? How was it found? And what of these other Centaurs....are they the same as Chiron?
|CHIRON'S DISCOVERY PREDICTED!:|
Did you know that several people actually predicted a body like Chiron would be discovered, one as far back as 1920? Read about these predictions here.
|WHAT CHIRON IS- ASTROLOGY:|
OK, now what the heck does Chiron mean astrologically? Lots of keywords to help you get a handle on using Chiron in charts. How do you find out where Chiron is now, or on your birthdate? What of the strange relationship Chiron has with Saturn and Uranus?
What is Chiron's true glyph? If you want to be precise, don't overlook this section!
|CHIRON AS SCOUT PLANET:|
Is Chiron your Guiding Planet? What does it mean if Chiron is your Planet of Oriental Appearance?
It has long been an astrological axiom that a planet in the birthchart conjunct the Ascendant influences a person's appearance. Is this true when Chiron is rising? Check out these photos of people born with Chiron close to the Ascendant, and tell me what you think.
Here is a list of every Chiron Station between 1900-2050. It includes a way to tell if it is going Stationary Retrograde or Stationary Direct..
Here is a quick way to estimate where Chiron's position anytime between 1900-2050, as well as when it will be transiting into aspect with one's natal Chiron. Great tool for finding the approximate date of your Chiron Return (see below).
The Chiron Return is one of the most significant transits in one's life, happening to everyone around age 50-51. But what will it mean for you?
|CHIRON CONJUNCT PLUTO:|
Chiron and Pluto were exactly conjunct on December 30, 1999, marking the beginning of a new cycle, and helping to shape the 21st Century .
Do you know who Amycus, Asbolus, Bienor, Chariklo, Crantor, Cyllarus, Echeclus, Elatus, Hylonome, Nessus, Okyrhoe, Orius, Pelion, Pholus,Pylenor, Rhiphonos and Thereus are? Well, you should, because they are turning out to be major astrological influences. Have you heard about the other Centaurean bodies? (There may be as many as 100 Centaurs found so far.) How about Heracles or Damocles? These bodies are also proving to have astrological significance.
Do any Centaurs share common traits? And even more intriguing, do any of them share traits with other bodies in our solar system? Ixion gets almost as close to us as Pluto - is there a connection? And what type of connection does Amycus have with Halley's Comet, since they both travel about as far out?
|CENTAUR KEY WORDS:|
Here are some suggested keywords for many of the Centaurs, including Amycus, Asbolus, Bienor, Chariklo, Chiron, Crantor, Cyllarus, Echeclus, Elatus, Hylonome, Ixion, Nessus, Okyrhoe, Pelion, Pholus, Pylenor, Thereus, as well as several as yet unnamed bodies. Some I've come up with, but there are a great many contributed by other researchers.
|CENTAUR KEY WORD SURVEY:|
Would you like to share the keywords you have discovered for any of the Centaurs? Or suggest a name for any of the unnamed ones?
I have some temporary symbols for some Centaurs, and other bodies, until official symbols are designated.
|WHERE ARE THEY RIGHT NOW?:|
You can look at 2008-2015 ephemerides for Chiron, Pholus, Nessus, Asbolus, Chariklo, Hylonome, and the other named Centaurs, plus Damocles, Heracles and more.
|CENTAURS AND THE GALACTIC CENER:|
Chiron, and at least one other Centaur, has an intimate relationship with the center of our galaxy....one of the most intense energy sources we know. I hope you'll read more about this.
Chiron and Chariklo were mates in mythology. It turns out that they have a very interesting relationship astrologically, as well. Read about what was set in motion the last time these two Centaurs were conjunct.
Hey! Are there really Centaurs with their own moons?
|IXION - FATHER OF THE CENTAURS:|
Find out about this huge minor planet, recently discovered, that was named after the mythological being that sired the Centaurs.

Al H. Morrison also had a vast knowledge about the Moon. Read a few of his thoughts here.
|TAKE A TRIP BEYOND PLUTO|
|1992 QB1 - 15760|
The discovery of the first body out past Pluto occurred in 1992, and is lovingly alled QB1. Find out more about this body, and why we may soon be calling it Ouroborus.
Yes, we have some IMPs in our solar system. The initials stand for Icy Mini Planets, and they are also called SDOs (Scattered Disk Objects). Find out about the first two ever discovered, and see where they are today.
|LOTS MORE OUT THERE!:|
In the outer reaches of our solar system, there are a plethora of bodies being discovered, some quite huge, and many quite interesting.
For a very brief time, it was our Tenth Planet, until it became one of the members of the new "Dwarf Planet" category
|DWARF PLANETS: Eris, Makemake, Haumea, Salacia|
|PLUTINOS: Rhadamanthus, Huya, Orcus, and a few as yet unnamed|
|CUBEWANOS: QB1, Borasisi, Chaos, Deucalion, Varuna, Quaoar, Sila-Nunam, Logos & Teharonhiawako|
|OORT OBJECT: Sedna and #87269|
|SCATTERED DISK OBJECTS: Typhon and Ceto|
|KEY WORDS - BODIES PAST PLUTO:|
Here are some suggested keywords for BORASISI, CHAOS, DEUCALION, ERIS, HAUMEA, HUYA, LOGOS, MAKEMAKE, ORCUS, QUAOAR, RHADAMANTHUS, SALACIA, SEDNA, TEHARONHIAWAKO, TYPHON, VARUNA. Some I've come up with, but there are a great many contributed by other researchers. And there is a link to send in your own keywords if you'd like to have them added.
| APOLLO PLUS 14 |
Since the mid-1970's, astrologers have been exploring the use of the asteroids in the chart, and most astrology programs now include the first four: Ceres, Pallas, Juno and Vesta. After Ellie Bach pioneered the use of those four, the late Al H. Morrison and I began studying AMERICA, AMOR, APOLLO, ATLANTIS, BACCHUS, EROS, HIDALGO, ICARUS, LILITH, PANDORA, PSYCHE, SAPPHO, TORO and URANIA.
| RHEA & CYBELE|
In Greek mythology, Chronus (equivalent to the Roman Saturn) was married to Rhea. Cybele was a Phrygian goddess that the Greeks identified with Rhea as well. Since they both relate to Saturn's wife, could their chart positions also relate to Saturn in the chart?

|"There is a Native American prophecy which states that when the planet of 'healing' is discovered in the sky, this is when the sacred warrior teachings will return to earth. |
Just recently I heard a Yacqi shaman speak: "Imagine if you will, it is pre-dawn and the sun is about to rise on the beach, and some people have awakened early to see the pre-dawn light. The rest of the people are still sleeping on the beach, and those who woke up early have a "sacred responsibility" to help other people as they begin to wake up, and to know what sunrise is all about."

Chiron taught many things to his pupils, and one of these was astrology.
Kepler College is open. They are the only acredited school in the world that will provide for an accredited diploma in astrology. They are located in Seattle, Washington, USA. To quote Steven Forrest: "Another school of astrology? Not at all. Kepler College is different. It's a degree-granting four-year university, just like a conventional college -- except that astrology provides the spine of the curriculum. The ribs, however, encompass all the usual academic areas: history, mathematics, language skills, and so on. In short, Kepler College provides the finest, most well-rounded, most rigorous astrological training available anywhere in the Western World in recent centuries."
