S.A.R.S is pleased to announce Gabriel Donleavy presenting his talk
on the big four asteroids.
qualified in astrology with the UK Faculty of Astrological Studies
in 1977 when he won its gold medal in the final exams. He served on
the committee of the Astrological Association of Great Britain for
several years and edited its newsletter Transit for 3 of them.
was the station astrologer for BBC Radio Medway before moving to
Singapore for his university work. While in the Far East for the next
20 years, he did corporate consulting and mundane astrology. On
migrating to Parramatta in 2009, he was registered as a corporate
specialist with the Australian Psychic Society. He wrote 49 monthly
columns for the online Psychic Times in the US under the byline
"Serenity Fair" before the channel changed hands in 2010.He
is still a professor of accounting at UWS despite 5 squares to a
Jupiter Chiron conjunction, including a double from Saturn and Mars.
his talk tonight, he takes up the theme of asteroids, following the
recent talks on Hygea and Chiron. He will outline the mythology of
Juno, Athena, Ceres and Vesta and give everyone a list of famous
women whose charts we will look at. This will enable audience members
to guess which women had which asteroids prominent in their birth
charts, and then to see if they guessed right. Gabriel writes:
"The 4 big asteroids go some way to rectifying the masculinist
biases and imbalances of traditional astrology, in which so called
female characteristics are stereotyped and overloaded onto the Moon
and Venus and projected onto the imaginary space called Lilith. What
if we renamed a few planets to even things out and reflect today's
society rather than that of ancient Rome? Should Venus really be
Diana/Artemis and Mars be Venus, for example? Should the dwarf Pluto
keep the name give it by a young lady (who happened to be named
Venestia) over breakfast with her grandad in Oxford one March morning
in 1931? If the names are divinely inspired or inner plane directed,
then is it time to reverse Vesta's sacrifice of her place on Olympus?
She gave up her seat to Dionysus who, typical man-god, wasn't even grateful."
