"Dot com so people can find the link to our Patreon in the description below this video on YouTube or on the podcast website if they want to get access to some of those other charts for earlier in the month. Yeah. So those are the two electional charts for September. So is there anything else we meant to mention in terms of the forecast? Because that puts us right up, we're getting into October transits at this point. So that might be it in terms of the astrology of September. I think that's it. Okay. Cool. Well, what do you two have going on this month? What are you working on over the course of September? Are you launching any new things? Catherine, I know you're launching a new course. Yeah, so it's not necessarily new, but we're doing another rendition of my foundations course, so that's going to begin on September 7th. So it's an 11 week program and we try to fit a lot and those 11 weeks. So if you want to revisit foundations or you haven't gotten there yet, there's still time to join in. And I'll also be at the astrology gathering. It's a little conference in lilydale, New York, western New York, so that one's a lot smaller than the Easter conference that we were talking about at the beginning. And I will be working at that one. I will be giving a talk on astrology as divination. Very much looking forward to it. Very appropriate. That sounds awesome. It was famous for its necromancers. Is there a euphemism for that? Or is there a prettier way that it said instead of necromancers? Spiritualists. Spiritualism. People who people who speak with the dead. Yeah. It's a town of psychic mediums. Okay. So yeah, that's kind of the angle I was going. Right. And what's your website again? You can find me at Catherine urban dot com and also I'm on the social platforms at ASTRO Catherine. Okay. Perfect. Austin, what do you have coming up? Well, not exactly coming up, but literally came out while we were recording was a new sphere in sundry series. Nice. Which is a beautiful election with Venus and Libra. Venus in Pisces from earlier this year during the period where Venus was co present with Jupiter. And it's the it's the partner to the last one that got released, which was a moon in cancer trying Venus. And so that one was let's use Venus beneficence to get a great moon election. This was literally the same day, but later, when it was the hour of Venus and Venus was prominent. So let's use that cancer moon to support Venus. So really nice Venus and Venus and Pisces. I don't think we'll be able to find a better election for several years. Maybe at least 5. I looked forward. Oh yeah, because Saturn is going to go into Pisces. Yeah. So it's out for the next two and a half, three, and good luck getting a Coke presence with Jupiter. So it's about as about as good as you can get with Venus in Pisces, which is pretty fucking good. Nice. So that came out during this podcast we did, we had similar electional parameters in line. Right. So go check out spirit and sundry for that. All right, that's fair and sundry dot com. Indeed, it is. Brilliant. All right. As for myself, I'm going to keep doing the podcast. I'm recording some interviews in person. I just recorded one with Nicholas smuts Elsa on fertility astrology. I'm going to release early next month and continue just moving forward, released the progressions episode with Catherine and also just released a major episode on transits that I'd recommend people watch because I've been waiting until I could do that episode really well and I finally did it with Lisa a couple of months or a couple of weeks ago and it came out really well and we're going to do a follow-up at some point on transits with more examples and do a little bit of a Q&A with listeners. The other thing as you mentioned social media Katherine and I finally I've been joking about it and I was kind of the joke for a couple of years, but I finally actually started a TikTok account and I'm not going to be doing any dances on it necessarily, but I am in a release some clips of the podcast there and other behind the scenes like content related to the podcast on TikTok in short little 32nd one minute or three minute clips, especially for some of our younger generation Friends where that's like their main social media platform. I'm pretty sure the last time you all had me as a guest for the forecast, that was the joke of our election chart for June. Okay, to start a TikTok account. Chris would start a TikTok account. Right. I actually did it. I called everyone's bluff and I've started a TikTok account so you can find that at TikTok dot com slash astrology podcast or just at astrology podcast, however you find it there on TikTok. You can join are you going to do a dance or join TikTok Austin? I'll just say this. If I do join TikTok, I will do a dance. Okay. All right, I will hold you to that. I'll see you maybe before you leave Colorado. We'll see if we can get something going maybe. Yeah. Okay. If I joined TikTok, okay. All right. Chances are low. Cool. Well, we will leave it at that. And in the meantime, thanks everybody. It was great doing this episode with you. Thanks both of you for coming out to Denver and Austin. This is your idea to record this in person because it's been like two years since we recorded an episode in person back before we did the 2020 forecast. And in November 2019. Yeah, back in the good old days of Jupiter and Sagittarius. It was bad. It was the last party of the party at world's end. Right. Yeah. Well, this worked out really well. And yeah, hopefully we'll start doing these again more often here in person as the world starts to move into whatever the next phase is. Yeah, thanks so much for having me. This is fun. Being in the studio. Yeah, and actually, you announced recently worth mentioning a personal note that you had a life change that occurred. Yes. So I'm expecting a baby. Yeah, that's the big news. And then we were talking about your Mars transit. Oh, right, yeah. Well, it's just a weird synchronicity that I just recorded the fertility astrology episode a couple of days ago, and then you also flew out basically the next day. And I think you're the possibly the first, I don't know 100%, but I want to say the first guest on the podcast or co host that was pregnant at the time. Yeah, the youngest, the youngest baby on the podcast. Youngest guest ever on the Internet podcast. I like that. And Chris, Chris has Mars in his 5th House of children for the next 18,000 months. Right. Yeah. Yeah. And creativity. So that Venus and Libra should help enhance that for you. All right, well, maybe at first future like Mars revisits to Gemini, maybe you can come back and we can get like a follow-up interviews to see how things are going. Yeah, sounds great. Okay, cool. All right. Well, that's it. So thanks for both of you for joining me. Thanks everyone for watching or listening. Thanks to everybody that joined us for the patrons in our live audience. This is a great experiment with doing a live studio recording with an audience. So thanks for your support and that's it for this episode of the podcast. So thanks for watching and we'll see you again next time. Special thanks to

"Related to. You say to the planets. And there's also this very strange thing with astrology where we know what cards are going to be played 3260 months into the future. In some ways, it's the opposite of who knows what we're going to get with the cards. If you shuffle well, it's like, all right, what's it going to be, whereas like, you know, you know that you know the cards that are going to be played in the future as long as you have an accurate ephemeris for as far ahead as you might look. Right, and that repetition of historical cycles and events that you can see down through history and research like objectively like the Venus was retrograde and we had the initiation of this war in like four years ago under a Venus retrograde in Capricorn. There was something similar or the Saturn Neptune conjunctions historically that you were talking about Austin in these important turning points in Russian history and how that's happened in the past and how we can see that already coming up again in the future. So there's this weird objective component too and that's something that makes astrology very unique and very interesting and hard to reconcile with that other part of it, but that's part of our job as astrologers and astrologers are also signified by mercury traditionally as being the intermediaries and the interpreters of the stars and of the movements of the planets. And the calculators. You got to have mercury. We talked about astrology programs. That's not most of the history of astrology. It's a lot of calculation. The mathematical way. All right, I think that's a really good note since we're at two hours and 15 minutes. That might be a good wrapping up point in terms of this forecast, so thank you both. This was amazing. Sam, what do you have coming out? Do you have any events? Classes, other things, speaking, engagements. Yeah, so one of the things I'm excited about is that I'm participating in Oprah's op astrology dot org, I believe I astrologer, which is starting next month. So it's going to start, I believe, on, I want to say the second, but yeah, it starts in April. And it's really bringing together a lot of different astronomers to really mentor and help people become better astronomers. So I think I even had a mentee or maybe a two in the room, so that's something that I'm very excited about. And we're also going to meet in person in Tucson. Nice. And so you are a consulting astrologer. And what's your website again? Unlock astrology dot com. Brilliant. There it is, unlike astrology dot com, and you offer readings, classes, and you're speaking at one or two other conferences later this year. Yeah, absolutely. I'm speaking also at Norwalk in May. So a Memorial Day weekend and then in August toward the end of August, we'll be also presenting with ESR and then yet another conference, I think it's a smaller conference. It's in September, I'm blanking on the dates right now. It's new. And it's going to be in lilydale near buffalo, New York. Brilliant. All right, what people can probably find out more information about that on your website on the orchestra dot com and then you're also of course very active on Twitter. What's your handle there again? Unlock astrology since I've lost the other one, but yeah, unlock astrology. Perfect. All right. Austin, what do you have coming up? Well, the debel Getty series that I elected for street and sundry actually came out. I think about two hours ago today for the plus members and it will be out publicly on Monday, the 28th. I have people want to make sure to catch that, get on Kate's mailing list, the student sentry mailing list, let's see, I am going to be opening up reopening up my year one program for a little bit, letting some more students in in April, specifically April 13th, and so they filled up really quickly last time. And so if you want to if you really want to study with me and soon get on the mailing list, because I'll send that out. I'll send out a newsletter before I open it up publicly. And then for my returning students, if you've already done year one where you're two with me, I'm going to be beginning a whole new yearlong set of year two and year three classes in May. And the enrollment for that opens on April 30th. That shouldn't be a mad rush. So I mean, by all means, by all means sign up for the newsletter and definitely get that when it comes out. But there's not as much pressure there. Nice. And your website is Austin copic dot com and you're also speaking at Norwalk. I'm going to barely shut up at Norwich I've got two talks and as opposed to normal, right? No, but I've got two talks and a 5 hour workshop. Brilliant. Okay, cool. Yeah, we'll check out his website at Austin copic dot com. As for me, I did want to mention in plug briefly our sponsor from last month, which was the zodiac buzzed drinking card game. They have launched their KickStarter, it's almost funded, but they're very close to their goal, and there's only 7 days to go. I think the deadline is April 2nd for it to be fully funded. So if you'd like to help them out to push them over the edge over the next few days or get a copy of those cards, a first edition copy, which is probably going to be a collector's edition, honestly, because I think this is going to be a big thing. Just go to KickStarter dot com and search for.

"Now, if you come to lily Dale expecting the residents to all be new agey women with flowing scarves and crystals, you'd be wrong. In addition to being a spiritualist and the local historian who runs the town museum, Ron Nike is an air force vet and a former prison guard. He was also immediately suspicious of me. Like, how did you come to be? No personal course. No person. Well, are you from? I just talked to Joanne. I said, I'm not going to talk about no person. I'm not in the mood today. You're not from here, though? No. Oh, okay. When I visited Ronnie lily Dale's museum, it took him over an hour to warm up to me. But we ended up talking for almost half the day about the town and the people who have kept alive for the past 140 years. He showed me maps and black and white photos from lily Dale's early years. 6, 7, 8 or more streets there, all the laws were full, so in 1887, they bought from Norse street all the way to the Lake. When the town expanded, there were some growing pains. Take their forest temple, an outdoor space for services. Back in the late 1800s, it was set up in a pretty poor location. There was a fence the whole length of the property went all the way down and there was a pig horn on the other side. They would have four temple, and it was a pig farm next to pink born for next time. Those people were tough. Yeah. They kind of ruins the vibe, but I feel like it ruins the vibes. You can't hold your breath that long. Despite setbacks like this, the town continued to grow. It gained followers and fame. And the museum is filled with artifacts punctuating this history. Ron walked me past chalk, tablets used for writing messages from the dead, hotel guest books that recorded famous visitors, and even a collection of paintings allegedly created by spirits. But aside from seances and ghost paintings, spiritualism was radical for another reason. It gave women real power in the 1800s. Most mediums were women. They still are. And beyond their own communities, spiritualists fought for causes like women's rights and the abolition of slavery. Ron showed me a wall devoted to lily Dale's role in fighting for women's suffrage. We stopped at a photo of Susan B. Anthony, who came to lilydale to give a speech in the auditorium. Susan Anthony was not a spiritualist. She was here, she had a reading and she says, I didn't like that person when they were living. I don't want to hear from my now on their dead. Susan Anthony for you. It's easy to get the impression when you're visiting lilydale. That spiritualism is still thriving religion. But it's not. Like Sharon said, today, most people don't even know that it is an actual religion. And it's also become a bit of a punchline. I think that's why Ron was suspicious of me. Many outsiders come to lily Dale's skeptical, or judgmental. Thinking everyone here is either gullible or lying. But that's not what I saw. I saw people who seem to sincerely believe the principles of their faith. And many practice that faith in a way that actually seem tells me. While most Americans push death to the margins, lily Dale keeps their dead close by. So are these all shingles from? There are strangles from mediums that passed away. I put some of the more prominent mediums up there and some of the when a prominent medium passes away. The shingle that once hung in front of their house gets added to the wall at the museum. It's a patchwork of colors, fonts, names, and stories. The town is filled with memorials like this. So is there anything you'd recommend me checking out while I'm here? What's really cute is the fairy trail. Is that where they scatter ashes? Did I read that? Sometimes they put the ashes or and if you walk towards the stump on the left hand side is a pet cemetery. That's nice. I took Ron's advice and I visited the fairy trail. On a short path through the forest, there were several adorable figures of fairies and gnomes, along with small memorials and prayer cards. One showed a photo of a young man and a woman. It said, not a day goes by that you aren't missed. While I was in lilydale, I attended several services. Out of respect for everyone's privacy, I wasn't permitted to record, but I'll explain a bit here. Some of the medium's readings were vague. Some were incredibly specific and accurate. And some were totally off the mark. This happened at all the services I attended. But what also happened was this. One woman laughed about her mother who passed away decades ago. She remembered how her mom always overdid it with the maple air freshener. Another woman was comforted by a medium and fellow audience members, as she recalled a miscarriage. Whether or not the mediums were correct, wasn't important. It was the time spent talking about death. For processing the love and the grief for the people we've lost. As I listen to other visitors talk about their loved ones, it was clear that this safe space, a space without skepticism, without judgment. It had value to them. And now I get why lily Dell has survived for so long. But then again, maybe this isn't that surprising. After all, you.

"I think and a lot of people have told me this that you don't know what it is when you're crossing into the gate and coming in here. But to me, there's almost a palpable sense of not just spirit, but the energy of a higher reality. Sharon klinger is one of 36 registered mediums who come to lily Dale each summer. She makes the trip from Cleveland to spend several months serving spirit. This means passing on messages from the dead to the living at both public services and private Sessions. Some tourists come to lilydale seeking a spectacle. But spiritualism is more than just a sideshow. A lot of the people who come here don't know that spiritualism of religion. They just know that we talk to dead people. So but it's much more to us. Yeah. You know, it's much more to us. It's a very holy and sacred thing. Back when lily dough was founded in 1979, there were as many as 8 million spiritualists in the U.S. and the UK. But since then, the religion is lost steam. To get a sense of how small the movement is today, consider this. There are around 17,000 Catholic churches in the U.S., but there are only 75 churches devoted to spiritualism. And among the handful of spiritualist communities that remain, lily Dale is the largest and most popular. Sharon first visited lilydale 40 years ago. What drew you to come here? Oh, I've been coming here since the 70s. I mean, I came here with a friend and with my ex and God bless him hastened spirit now. As a working medium in town, Sharon has a pack schedule every summer. On top of private readings, she served spirit for large groups in lily Dale's main auditorium several times a week. I attended one of these sessions during my visit and Sharon was electric. She moved up and down the aisles, cracked jokes, and talked to members of the audience about their uncles, mothers, and siblings who were now in spirit. It was like she was part preacher, part therapist, part stand up comedian. Sometimes I see the most ridiculous things and I just wish I could have a spring and like show a movie of the things that I'm saying because they're just ridiculous. Well, yesterday the day I saw the naval boat. Uh, yeah. Yeah, it was. It was a huge I didn't know it was a naval boat. At first it was just a boat, then it was a ship and it was a naval ship. It's just tons of navy guys disembarking disembarking. Most of the mediums I encountered at lily they'll work this way. First, they receive images or partial messages from a spirit, and then they try to identify their target in the audience. Take the example you just heard from Sharon. She might start by asking something like, does anyone in the audience have someone in spirit who served in the navy? Several hands go up. Then after more communication with the spirit or any of those relatives named Charles, did any of them smoke a pack a day? And so on until all the hands but one would go down and the real conversation would begin. Sharon calls it playing trades with dead people. Yeah, some people are clear audience. If I were clever audience, they could just tell me what they want to say, but I'm clear voyage. So I have to get all these visual messages like that great big moving van that only two boxes came out of, you know, that kind of thing. Mediums like Sharon have to grapple with visitors high expectations when they come to lilydale. Those who are seeking to contact a spirit aren't typically looking for idle chit chat. They're often seeking healing, closure, or forgiveness. Like reconciliation, did they get it? You often they do. But that's not over in one reading. You know, it's something that I have to tell them. You need to meditate. They have to carry on the work. It's not something. Yes, enlightenment can happen like this, but then you've got to do the work to keep the enlightenment in your mind and your heart and all of that. Because spiritualists believe it's possible for the living to communicate with the dead. The healing process is unique. For one thing, you don't have to get closure all by yourself. If you still have that one thing you'd like to say to your father, you can say it. If.
