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.

This lecture will feature the signs of the zodiac with simple key words, then explain how each fits into an integrated whole. Where do you fit into this ecosystem?

All together, a simple tracking of these will provide a powerful frame with which to build your astrological studies
Our life in time begins at conception; however our time sense changes as we age according to a precise and knowable pattern and mathematics.

But first, understand for the time of your life.
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.

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.
The desire for intimacy is the goal of most people and astrology has long played a part in describing the factors that support or inhibit a successful relationship.

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.
