New Ways of Relating: Understanding the In-Depth Dynamics of Sign Combinations for Natal, Synastry and Forecasting Work

One of the most important steps in chart interpretation is understanding the dynamics between the zodiac signs. Grasping the essence of the signs and their points of similarity and difference are the keys to successful natal, forecasting and synastry work. Some connections are easy to spot, such as the freedom-focused, future-orientated duo of Sagittarius and Aquarius, or the home, hearth, gardens and cuisine combo of Cancer and Taurus. But what of Leo and Capricorn? Cancer and Libra? Aries and Virgo? In truth, every pairing has themes in common, as well as components that don’t easily fall into place, but pinpointing the “heart” of its connection – the essence of its relationship – often requires further detective work. We all have to live alongside difficult people and cope with parts of our charts that are in conflict, but the key is to working out how such contradictory combinations can not only survive, but also thrive with one other.

This brand new workshop will look at how sign combinations interact and manifest in a natal chart, in synastry and in forecasting. With many chart examples, we’ll spend the day learning to suss out and articulate the dynamics between the signs – how they can really work with each other – so bring along your own charts and stories, too.

Attendees will each receive a booklet of charts and information written by Frank to accompany the workshop.

Where is it? Who dunnit? Finding things and discovering what happened with horary

In many horary charts, the key to the successful judgment lies in discovering something fundamentally significant about an event that has already happened. This is especially the case with charts involving missing persons or pets, where we need to extract every vital clue from the chart that we possibly can and test our judgement against what is already known. From missing objects, lost pets, through to abduction and identifying the perpetrator of thefts and crime, this highly practical one-day workshop focuses on the most important and reliable techniques used in the judgement of ‘mystery’ charts. The techniques are demonstrated against proven case histories and the instruction is suitable for all levels of horary experience.

Neptune: Finding Our Way in the Fog

“In order to make your dreams come true,
You need to wake up.”

……. Rumi

We are not all artists, mystics or mediums, but we all have Neptune somewhere in our charts. What does this Neptune want from us? How can we honor this cosmic guide?

We will first try to understand Neptune principle in a way that can help us in our daily practical life, then we will investigate the subject with Neptune’s sign and house positions.
