Michael Douglas Neely

Life Cycles: Astrology and Its Connection to Nature
Tuesday, October 11, 7 pm
$5 Free to members

Neely lays out his theories about the mysterious astrological principle of Exaltation and Debilitation. After tenaciously working to figure out why certain planets were considered exalted or debilitated at particular degrees of the zodiac, Michael discovered that these are better identified as upswing and downswing points within a life cycle that also has climax and anticlimax points. Each planet has its own unique life cycle that manifests its quality in nature. The planets cooperating together create the fractal-like nature we experience in a daily, annual, and human lifetime cycle.

Michael Douglas Neely has been an astrology enthusiast since 2002. He has studied and tested various forms of astrology on a theoretical and practical level, both Eastern and Western. The author is knowledgeable in various aspects of astrology, various divination systems, yoga, Eastern philosophy, and Sanskrit. He resides in Seattle, Washington.

Underground Tarot Publication Party

It's finally finished! Thanks to the combined efforts of the friends and members of three Tarot groups that have met here at the library, our own Tarot deck is almost in our hands! This deck is as diverse as the interests and philosophies of all who have participated in its creation. In that diversity lies the key to its unique power - the incredible energy of so many who have worked on this labor of love.

Those of you who have visited the library in the past couple of years have probably noticed both the note on the library door describing the project, in addition to the sign-up sheet and the card description forms that were posted inside. A few months ago, the sign-up sheet was completed as the last of the cards was 'adopted' for creation. Just over a week ago the last few cards were turned in. In the ensuing days, the creative efforts of Michael Hazani and Greg Sinibaldi have turned seventy-eight very differing cards into a unified and beautiful Tarot deck, and that deck is now ready to be printed.
The first deck and booklet, of course, we want to donate to the library. At that time, we also want to be able to distribute the deck and the accompanying interpretation booklet to any library members or friends who would like to order them. Since we will only be able to order a couple of copies beyond those that are ordered in advance and prepaid, we will soon be sending out more information about the preordering process. In the meantime, we are including here pictures of a few of the cards to introduce The Underground Tarot.

Thanks to all of you for support of The Underground Tarot!
Kathy Eckert and Underground Tarot Group
