What does it mean to be born at the time of an Eclipse and what are the pre- natal Eclipses? Eclipses can be used both in Mundane and Natal Astrology, but in this lecture we will explore the meaning and influence of personal Eclipses on our lives, and how we can use them to understand ourselves, and our evolutionary purpose in a better way.
Composed of two quincunxes and a sextile, the Yod is often referred to as “The Finger of God.” This pointed-shaped configuration requires the highest of a person’s integrity; it deflates arrogance and can only be mastered through sincere humility. Maurice goes through all possible Yod placements in the chart, detailing the different evolutionary lessons in each case.
Death and loss are the great equalizers bringing each of us to the depths of our humanity. Whether we discuss loss in terms of loved ones, loss of health, home, career, youthful vitality, or freedom, loss is ever present in our lives. Astrology is no magic salve for grief but it can help us gain some perspective on these tragic occasions.
In this seminar I will explain: (a) advantages and disadvantages of some of commonly used house systems, (b) problems and issues we encounter with different house systems, (c) how the astronomical basis of zodiac signs and houses is similar, (d) observations and conclusions about house systems that I came up with after interviewing and consulting thousands of clients, and (e) interpretations of the 12 houses that are slightly different from the usual interpretations.
From a sky full of omens to a sky full of possibilities, Astrology as a practice has moved through the ages, reflecting the worldview of the times. Astrologers have had the tools to help guide and heal the individual, as now we also have the tools to help guide and heal the collective. Julija explores the concept of the Cosmic Mind, the role of astrology in our conscious evolution and the need for cultivating an astrological meme for a world in transition.
Rooted in ancient sky watching, the visible or heliacal phases of the planets represent the origin of astrological tradition. The living sky was the very first astrological "chart." Adam will introduce the little-known, simple sky factors which link modern astrology to our shared roots as astrologers. He will then present the underlying structure of the Outer Planet phases with the Sun and offer a comparison of delineations between chart-only and chart+sky. Welcome the astrological sky back into your astrological charts!
In this workshop you'll experience how astrology and dreamwork can be combined into a transformative spiritual practice. Dream symbols closely reflect our natal and transiting planets. We'll consider the meaning of dreams occurring during particular transits and progressions, and how planetary and dream archetypes manifest in waking life. Decoding the messages of dreams and transits together generates a potent broth of upsurgent feelings, pressing tasks, and energies rising within us in conscious response to change.
Reception is an important classical consideration that is often overlooked in astrology. This talk covers the way a planet treats others in its dignities and what kind of effects that relationship has on a planet who happens to be in the sign of another. We’ll explore definitions and techniques that are based on these relationships between the planets such as mutual reception, negative reception, and the implications these have on horary and natal chart techniques.
