The Use of Planetary Directions, Progressions and Transits in Spotting Lifetime Themes

Over time the tradition of astrology has developed many divinatory systems to look at moments or epochs in time. But which techniques are the most effective and when? What combinations of these methods work best?

Find new insights and inspirations with some of the old traditions.

When the Whole World Goes South in 2018: The Value of Planetary Nodes in Mundane and Personal Synthesis and Prediction (Extended Lecture)

The outer planets make sure whatever you were doing, you are not doing it any more. Personal evolution is an adventure, but it’s not designed to be comfortable. In this lecture we will be looking at these times, focusing on Pluto as it crosses its own planetary Node. Last time witnessed the rise of Hitler and the crash of the stock market, tipping the balance of all world alliances and economies. But the real kicker is how does it slam into your private life? And what about your money and resources? And your alliances?

The High Price of Love: Venus and Mars

“Moonlight and love songs never out of date, hearts full of passion jealousy and hate” ….. We all search for intimate connections we hope will give us security; yet the outer planets, and the new planets currently being discovered, are constantly demonstrating that being open to change is our only hope for personal evolution. In this lecture we are going to be considering fated emotional attachments in an impermanent world.
