2020 FAA Conference Speaker Alan Clay
New Zealander Alan Clay has been a practising astrologer for over 40 years, with a background as a humanistic astrologer inspired by the work of Dane Rudhyar.
Over the past 20 years this has broadened into a study of Chiron and the Centaurs and more recently into the newly discovered Dwarf Planets.
His book Sedna Consciousness, the Soul’s Path of Destiny was well received at its 2018 launch at UAC in Chicago and reviewers have called it: ‘groundbreaking ’, ‘essential reading for astrologers’, ‘well-written, well-researched, and easily readable’ and ‘a treasure trove of information and inspiration’.
Dwarf Planet Astrology
Seven new planets, plus one upgraded, one downgraded, and one candidate compliment the nine that we are already using. This lecture looks at our busy new solar system and how the new dwarf planets extend traditional astrology into a richer and more spiritual perspective. We’ll look first at Sedna (spiritual destiny) as the new outer limit of our solar system and then at the other dwarf planets in this context, studying Ceres (nurturing), Pluto (transformation), Ixion (lawlessness), Orcus (speaking out), Haumea (rebirth), Makemake (devotion), Quaoar (new perspectives), Varuna (notability) and Eris (consciousness through discord).
