This presentation provides an interdisciplinary context for understanding human development. Because the meanings and sequence of the signs of the zodiac closely parallel developmental stages in early childhood, it is possible to form a unique hypothesis about human growth that dissolves apparent contradictions between nature vs. nurture and fate vs. free will. In merging astrology with developmental psychology, the Moon, representing the relational nature of growth, becomes the symbolic bridge between the two.
This talk considers the significators of wealth in a horoscope and the personal financial rhythms imprinted at birth. Through progressions, directions and transit activity, attitudes are altered and develop. The consultant astrologer can be a useful financial advisor as clients negotiate planetary cycles. In this talk, emphasis will be placed on the formidable planetary pictures of 2020, and thoughts will be offered as to how these financial rapids might be negotiated.
This lecture will introduce you to the universal aspects of the Nodal cycles. The signs involved speak to the meaning of these Nodal Transits. The North Node spends irregular amounts of time in each sign, a condition which translates into brief or extended phases in these 18+/-year nodal cycles. They can relate to mundane events and our individual, personal Journeys… And they become very relevant in forecasting events.
Neptune’s journey through Pisces is inviting us in increasing numbers to re-connect with soul centered intimate relationships. Unconditional love and heart based intimacy is at the core of this new relationship paradigm. We will explore how the current transits can best assist us to expand the areas of our chart connected to love and intimacy and clear unresolved internal complexes and blocks that may stand in our way.
Transiting Uranus, Neptune or Pluto across the angles can be an indicator of our clients’ possible life-changing trends. Yet, how our clients experience these trends is their affair and a tricky business for the consulting astrologer. How do we counsel? Will it be an awakening, enlightenment, or a transformational experience? Let’s look at the possibilities in our own charts in this interactive lecture.
The Sun is who you are, the Moon what you feel — but what's the Ascendant? It's what you must embody, the territory you must cross, to be who you are and get what you need. In evolutionary astrology, it's the vehicle that drives the entire incarnation, and also the terrain you must explore and master during this lifetime. Your Ascendant is custom-designed, via its ruler, aspects and/or first house planets, for the territory you must navigate…
Although there has not been extensive material on prenatal eclipses, lunations and their relation to our life stories, I consider them especially useful in pinpointing major life themes, within the astrological counselling when it is used side by side with the natal chart. The themes of the prenatal eclipse sign and the natal condition of its ruler cast striking information about the general direction in life. We will look at practical examples.
Probably the most commonly used chart to analyze relationships is the Composite Chart. Another gaining ever-greater popularity is the Davison Relationship chart. Both are based on the theory of midpoints and combining two individual charts to arrive at a single chart that expresses the nature and potential of the relationship. We’ll explore the commonalities and differences between the two and how each one explains the dynamic energy generated when people merge into relationship with each other.
Midpoints are not equal with some offering powerful insights into how a person operates and how they might experience a progression or transit. Case histories are offered in this presentation which will focus on event-fullness and how the energy from some midpoints can be felt across generations.
The chakra system, originated in Indian philosophy, is already well known and used in relation to our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. In this lecture, Gali will explain the correlations between the chakras and the planets, and how to work with them when analyzing a chart.
