Upcoming Events

UAC Conference 2018


May 24-29th, 2018

Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile Hotel



  I will be presenting two talks at the UAC Conference. 


The first one is on Sunday, May 27th at 9:00 AM: 


“The Five Gifts of Astrology”


Astrology brings great benefits to our clients, but astrology has a profound effect on the consciousness

of the astrologer. The route to personal development comes through interlocking gifts of: tolerance,

timing, a universal structure, personal understanding, and a spiritual path.  Consciously observing and

embracing these gifts greatly speeds up the astrologers spiritual progress. From this perspective we see

how psychology, astrology, and spirituality fit together.


 and the second one is at 4:30 PM on Sunday, May 27th:


 “The Hierarchy of Planets”


The three Trans-saturnine planets show the development of civilization. Saturn and Jupiter show the timing

within society.  Together these five planets create our external environment. The five personal planets

(Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars)  show how we become aligned with, and work through our

personal karma. Personal struggles within a lifetime must accommodate the larger concerns and challenges

posed by the external world. This talk demonstrates practical guidelines for dealing with these circumstances.



Inspiration for my talks at UAC

by Bob Mulligan

When asked to give two talks at UAC, I immediately thought of presenting material from my upcoming book, “An Astrology Guide for Spiritual Aspirants.”   After 14 years of indexing my own use of astrology for spiritual advancement, in a Uranian flash, I saw the “The Five Gifts of Astrology”  in my mind’s eye as the first chapter of my book.  This insight provided a consistent structure to organize these many years of work.  As a system, astrology guides us to a deeper understanding of ourselves, and of life. These five gifts are symmetrical attributes, leading us step by step from developing “Tolerance” through the mysteries of “Time and Timing”, supplying an all encompassing “One Universal Structure” leading to a comprehensive “Self-Understanding”, and finally arriving at a “Spiritual Path”. These gifts are the foundation of what astrology provides for our lives.

Another chapter of this work is my second talk The Hierarchy of Planets came as an inspiration to show how planets indicate the different layers of karma from the universal, social, and personal levels of awareness.  Quoting CEO Carter, “Could the nativities of the victims at Hiroshima all have indicated the death and ruin that overtook them on the fateful day of August, 1945?” Our personal thoughts, feelings, and actions have some symbiotic relationship to universal events.  Astrology provides a mechanism for understanding this profound intertwining of individual and collective karma.  Correctly approached, we can use the demarcations of the moment to raise our consciousness and manifest our true selves.
