Signs of the Times
Sunday 29th April 2018 - 15.30-18.00 BST
Charles Harvey wrote that “the deeper significance and purpose of our own lives can only really be understood when seen in the context of the major cycles of which our lives are a particular expression.” (Astrological Journal, March/April 1982)
In this webinar we will explore the significance in our birth charts of the two major planetary conjunctions which occurred in the last century: Uranus/Pluto and Uranus/Neptune. We will also discuss the three planetary cycles currently in their final stages and due to renew in 2020: Jupiter/Pluto, Saturn/Pluto and Jupiter/Saturn.
These cycles provide a valuable context for all our chart work and lend an astrological perspective to our understanding of the Baby Boomer generation, Generation X and the Millennials.
Seized from Within: Planetary Hijack
Sunday 6th May 2018 - 15.30-18.00 BST
Strength in a chart can turn to discomfort if one planet grows too dominant, seizing the psyche. A sensitive Moon can morph into an emotional Diva, a penetrating Mercury may leave little room for feeling; Mars can dominates as an abusive boss or parent. If one planet is overactive in our chart, another may stay minimally expressed, unable to give its full range of possibilities. How do we deal with these power imbalances in the chart? Planetary strengths and weaknesses don’t always take a predictable form. We will look more closely at traditional notions of strength, and how this may contribute to “renegade” chart patterns. How do we bring aliveness to those parts of the chart that remain underdeveloped or underused?
Astrology, Psyche, and Imagination
Sunday 13th May 2018 - 15.30-18.00 BST
Following the path initiated by Jung, yet paving his own way, depth psychologist James Hillman devoted his life’s work to returning soul to psychology. In his Pulitzer-nominated book “Re-Visioning Psychology,” Hillman lays out his rigorously well-considered vision (or re-vision) of a psychology rooted in the imagination and the kind of imagining identified by Jung as the primary activity of the soul. As Hillman describes, “Fantasy-images are both the raw materials and finished products of psyche, and they are the privileged mode of access to knowledge of soul.”
This webinar explores the archetypal perspective in Hillman’s “Re-Visioning Psychology” as a natural complement to astrology, via the book’s four main sections: “Personifying or Imagining Things,” “Pathologizing or Falling Apart,” “Psychologizing or Seeing Through,” and, finally, “Dehumanizing or Soul-making.” Chart examples will help illustrate how these ideas connect to astrology, can enrich our astrological work, and offer a unique perspective rooted in the depths of the soul.
Uranus in Taurus: Awakening Venus
Sunday 10th June 2018 - 15.30-18.00 BST
When Uranus went into Aries in 2010-11, we certainly experienced an awakening of Mars energy – individually and collectively. Those who could express it became extremely active, in all sorts of positive – and negative – ways. Those who could not express their Mars energy became depressed or helplessly angry against "them." Now, with Uranus newly in Taurus we can expect to see Venus awakening in all the wonderful and uncomfortable ways we can imagine. Here we shall explore how we might experiment personally in navigating this new Venusian energy.
The Chart in a Nutshell
Sunday 17th June 2018 - 15.30-18.00 BST
One of the questions always asked when teaching astrology is ‘Where do I start in a chart?’ It’s an important question and one which has many answers. So how do we quickly get to the essence of the main themes and narratives of a chart? In this webinar we will explore ways to get into the natal chart quickly, see what the main points of importance are and, most importantly, how we then relate those ideas to the client.
The Astrological Ages and Shifts in Human Consciousness
Sunday 1st July 2018 - 15.30-18.00 BST
Some astrologers believe we are living on the cusp between the Ages of Pisces and Aquarius, a potentially illuminating subject which is not always given the consideration it deserves. Carl Jung recognised the importance of the ages and the tumultuous changes that they herald. When there is the death of something a deep collective anxiety pervades society. Many of us feel this right now as we’re faced with an unknown future where our old familiar attitudes, beliefs, structures and mores are crumbling. As a species we don’t like change and we may well be dragged kicking and screaming into the Age of Aquarius.
This webinar looks at the synchronicity between myth, history, religion, and the evolution of humankind over the past astrological ages, and looks at the compasses which might help us through these shifts. Some planets are happier than others in specific ages; for instance, Mars has struggled to live out its true essence in the sign of Pisces.
Carl Jung was not very optimistic about the prospect for humanity in the coming Age of Aquarius, but this webinar presents a case that has rather more faith in the generations to come.
