The giveaway that we did last month for patrons of the podcast went so well that we are doing another one again this month with bigger and even better prizes.
All you have to do to enter for a chance to win in the giveaway is sign up on our page on Patreon to become a patron on the $5 or $10 tier, and then you will automatically be entered in to the drawing.
The drawing will take place at the end of the month during the Q&A episode that is scheduled to be recorded on June 29.
This month’s giveaway prizes are listed below:
Prize for Patrons on the $5 Tier
The winner of the June giveaway on the $5 tier will receive a free one year subscription to The Mountain Astrologer magazine!
The Mountain Astrologer magazine, published every other month for nearly 30 years, is the publication that students of astrology — and professional astrologers — rely on to keep them connected to the astrological community. TMA, which also has a digital edition, covers all the bases with well-edited feature articles, a student section, detailed forecasts, and even astro-humor.
You can find TMA’s blog, subscription information, and 15 years of back issues at: www.MountainAstrologer.com
Prize for Patrons on the $10 Tier
The grand prize this month for patrons on the $10 tier is a pass to the upcoming astrology conference that is being hosted by the International Society for Astrological Research!
This is going to be the biggest conference event of the year, and it is being held in Costa Mesa, California, from October 13–17, 2016.
The focus of the conference is on astrological forecasting, and the tagline is “the power of forecasting meets the consequence of choice.”
The conference will feature 60 speakers from around the world, speaking on six different tracks that cover timing techniques, financial markets, psychological shifts, spiritual phases, relationships, and Indian astrology.
There are also going to be two presidential panels at the beginning and end of the conference, since it will take place right before the U.S. presidential election in November, with one panel of international astrologers and one from the US.
Several different astrologers that have appeared on The Astrology Podcast will be giving lectures at the conference, including (alphabetically) Nick Dagan Best, Chris Brennan, Demetra George, Mark Jones, Lee Lehman, John Marchesella, Ray Merriman, Anne Ortelee, Sam Reynolds, and Leisa Schaim.
You can find out more information about the conference at www.ISARastrology.org.
How to Enter the Giveaway
All you have to do to enter the giveaway is become a patron of the Astrology podcast through our page on Patreon at the $5 or $10 tier. The monthly raffle is one of the perks that patrons receive for donating to support the show, in addition to the other bonuses.
Towards the end of the month we will do a drawing and then announce the winners of this month’s giveaway on the last episode of June.
If you are already a patron of the show on one of those tiers then you are already set, and you will be entered in to the drawing at the end of the month. If you are a patron of the show on one of the lower tiers then all you have to do to enter is upgrade to the $5 or $10 tier.
The only restriction for patrons is that your max monthly pledge has to be set at either the same as or more than the amount equivalent to what funding four episodes would cost in a month on that tier (i.e. $20 on the $5 tier or $40 on the $10 tier). If you have the max pledge set to less than this then you would not be qualified to enter in to the drawing, although there is still time to adjust that if you would like to be entered in for a chance to win.
Part of the purpose of the new monthly raffle is to raise money to improve the audio quality of the show by sending out high quality microphones to guests prior to interviewing them. We have already started to see the early benefits of this program in the improved audio quality of the past few episodes. If you enjoy the show and listen to it frequently then please consider pledging your support through our page on Patreon to help with the production of future episodes of the podcast.
If you have any questions or comments please email Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to TMA and ISAR for sponsoring this month’s giveaway!
