Galactic Astrology – Markers of Expanded Consciousness

With Julia Balaz


Julia Balaz presenting for NCGR San Diego


In this presentation we will discuss the amazing potential of Galactic Astrology as a tool that
can validate or track spiritual awakening of human consciousness or the readiness for
reclaiming our galactic heritage. You will learn what to look for in a natal chart to identify the
highest potential for reaching expanded states of consciousness in this life and areas where we
are most receptive to divinely inspired solutions that can help us return to our radiant
wholeness. Through Galactic Astrology, you will learn how to identify three common life
themes: 1) Teacher/Guide/Speaker/Influencer; 2) Healer/Dense Energy Transmuter/Shadow
Hunter, and 3) Innovator, Change Maker, System Builder.

Julia’s insatiable curiosity about personal development and evolution of consciousness is the
driving force in her life from very early on. She enjoys consistently expanding her understanding
of astrology, deep psychology, human biology and metaphysics, and applying what she learns
into practice. For seven years of her full-time service as a Quantum Healing Hypnosis
Practitioner (Dolores Cannon’s technique), she felt guided to meticulously study Astrological
Charts of her clients after their (QHHT®) session. She was looking for some proof about past
lives and extra-terrestrial information that came up in so many sessions. Her ongoing research
and passion for sharing intriguing discoveries via her social media and online courses is
attracting a growing community of Galactic Astrology enthusiasts that are experiencing a rapid
expansion of consciousness while exploring their own galactic heritage.

Julia was selected as one of the 12 Astrology teachers for the 2023 Astrology Hub platform.
She was interviewed on various well-respected channels including Pam Gregory, Heather
Ensworth, and others. Julia has accepted to be one of the ambassadors for NCGR to inspire her
community towards a high standard Astrological delineation that the most committed and
experienced astrologers are known for. On March 8th, 2024, she presented some of her work at
the International NCGR Conference. Her topic was how Galactic Astrology can provide markers
of deep ancestral connection to certain Star Nations and how their life traumas and key themes
can be playing out in our current life. You can access the recording on NCGR webinars page.moon

Pushing Boundaries: the Personal and Collective Dimensions of the Aries Point Axis

With Chad Woodward



Pushing Boundaries: The Personal and Collective Dimensions of the Aries Point Axis

In modern astrology, the Aries Point (AP) is the first degree of tropical Aries, and any placements in hard aspect to this degree, via squares or oppositions, are considered to activate the AP. In this presentation, we will explore the AP’s potential significance in relation to the natal chart and world events. For decades, modern astrologers have considered the AP important as a symbolic point of contact between the individual and the broader public sphere, emphasizing its relevance in the natal chart. However, the AP also appears significant in relation to world transits and collective-level events. We will look at significant alignments impacting the AP both historically and in the charts of influential individuals born with notable placements within the AP axis. With two meaningful conjunctions activating the AP over the next several years, a new understanding and discussion about this dynamic zodiacal degree is relevant.

Chad Woodward is an astrologer, herbalist, writer, and researcher. After discovering a passion for astrology in 2006, he has spent nearly two decades studying various fields and perspectives, drawing heavily from his foundation in evolutionary and psychological approaches. He is a graduate of Steven Forrest’s apprenticeship program, attaining level two certification in 2016. Chad has maintained his blog and counseling practice since 2009. He also has an academic background in cultural and medical anthropology. He is currently studying in the cultural astronomy and astrology graduate program at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David’s Sophia Centre.

The Mystical Saturn

with Adam Elenbaas


NCGR August 2024 with Adam Elenbaas


The Mystical Saturn with Adam Elenbaas

Often called “The Great Malefic,” “Lord of Karma,” or “The Great Task Master,” Saturn is easily one of the most maligned and misunderstood planets in astrology. What most people don’t know is that Saturn was also one of the earliest planets most consistently associated with mystics and contemplatives, as well as artistic genius, and innovative outsiders. In this lecture, we will look at the history of the planet Saturn in both modern and ancient times, with an eye for how this planet came to get its bad reputation as well as why Saturn, in addition to being an often challenging symbol, is also a planet of great depth, wisdom, and mystery.

Students can expect to leave this talk with an understanding of..

  • The history of Saturn as a symbol in astrology
  • Modern vs. traditional uses of Saturn as a symbol
  • The mystical history of Saturn
  • Chart Examples demonstrating the mystical nature of Saturn

Diane Ronngren

October 2020: We have some sad news to share with you all about one of our NCGR San Diego Board members. Our beloved Vice President, Diane Ronngren, recently transitioned from this earthly plane. She is now with the stars she loved and watched for many, many years, and reuniting with family, friends, and pets she’s not been with in quite some time.

This is a devastating loss for many of us who held Diane close in our hearts, and she will be greatly missed. Because of the pandemic, we are unable to gather together in person to celebrate Diane’s life. If you wish to do something to commemorate Diane’s life and contribution to astrology, I’m sure she would be honored to have donations made in her name to the Helen Woodward Animal Center
