Lost and Found: Working with the 12th house in the birth chart
Sunday 8th May 2022 - 15.30-18.00 BST

Planets in the 12th house are often ‘cut off’ early in life,  they may feel invisible to us, neglected or unrecognized. They can also be misinterpreted by others, leading to a sense of separateness or exclusion. At the same time, they give access to other realms, and ways of being, even to memories out of time. As these  energies become consciously integrated they  have much to offer in terms of vision, compassion and insight. Unintegrated planets here can be the source of our “undoing”. How do we “find’ these energies and begin to live them well?

Rage Hard: Reclaiming Mars Energy
Sunday 15th May 2022 - 15.30-18.00 BST

Will, drive, aggression, masculinity. These words often have negative connotations in our modern world. Mars is in crisis right now as we struggle with criminality, patriarchy and high rates of suicide. The warrior has been demoted to a safe fictional character or demonised in war, gang violence or as the sexual predator. Have we forgotten how to honour him?

In this re-evaluation of Mars, our driving force in life, we will look at why Mars is so important to every one of us and what terrible problems he can cause in life if we try and ignore him. How can we restore him to a noble figure?

Angels & Daimons, Signs & Wonders
Sunday 29th May 2022 - 15.30-18.00 BST

“I sit and wait… does an Angel contemplate my Fate?” sings Robbie Williams in his song, “Angels.”

In our modern culture of billions and trillions of email messages, text messages, and instant messages transmitting back and forth across the world from smartphones, tablets, and personal computers, it’s easy to forget the original instant messengers: the angels (from the Greek word “angelos,” meaning: “messenger, one that announces”), known in ancient Greece as daimons. In our modern culture saturated with technology, social media, ultra-high definition, and everything we need seemingly within grasp or easily delivered, are angels and daimons even relevant? And what do they have to do with astrology?

Influenced by James Hillman’s “The Soul’s Code,” among other sources, this webinar explores angels, daimons, the Roman genius, and the North African genie – all variations on the same theme of the spirit that is born with us, within us, the spirit that remembers our soul’s reasons for being here on earth. How can we approach the natal chart with the daimon in mind? How might we experience transits if we imagine a daimon behind the scenes? We will look at chart examples for glimpses of the daimon within, and we’ll see how angels and daimons and genius and genies show up archetypally via the imagination of popular culture in movies, literature, and songs, and how they can enhance our astrological imagination, keeping us in close contact with soul.

The Sun and the Moon in the astrological chart
Sunday 19th June 2022 - 15.30-18.00 BST

The Sun and the Moon are the two great luminaries in our sky. The Sun keeps its shape and brightness and lights up our days, and the Moon waxes and wanes through the night sky in relation to the Sun. They are intimately related to each other in the heavens above us, and also in the astrological chart. Here we shall look at the relationship between them so to remember how fundamental they are to our natures and how we might honour them as we develop through our lives.

Clare Martin
The Astrology of Grief
Sunday 26th June 2022 - 15.30-18.00 BST

This webinar will focus on the universal, and yet intensely personal, experience of grief. "Grief is not a disorder, a disease or a sign of weakness. It is an emotional, physical and spiritual necessity, the price you pay for love." (Rabbi Earl Grollman). We will explore the multi-layered astrological landscape of loss and grief and use the medium of enduring myths and stories to help us recognise and release the old griefs, personal, familial, ancestral and collective, which are stored in our bodies and souls.

Along the Edge of Self and Chaos: Venus, Mars, and the Birth of Eros
Sunday 3rd July 2022 - 15.30-18.00 BST

The Greeks said variously that Eros was the child of Nyx (Night) and Chaos who then created the entire world; and also the child of Venus and Mars whose arrows could inflame any heart with love. Audre Lorde wrote that “The erotic is the measure between the beginnings of our sense of self and the chaos of our strongest feelings.” Something about Love creates and recreates the entire world. Yet Love also often unnerves and overwhelms us, taking our entire world apart.

In the astrological sky, Venus and Mars – planets belonging to the Night sect – tell part of the story of our relation to the erotic. Often repressed yet also objectified and used by a Day-centered world, when these planets come forward in us they frequently do so with intense need and a sense of urgency and possibility. In this webinar we will explore myths of these two archetypes drawn from the Greco-Roman tradition but also the earlier Egyptian and Mesopotamian stories, to understand each planet on its own terms, and how they subject us (Mars) and seduce us (Venus) away from the order of our Daytime selves into the rich, polymorphous, chaotic space of Night.

Horoscope for the Week of April 18, 2022 - Mars in Pisces

Mars enters sensitive Pisces this week. It may seem that every move we make now has an emotional motivation. If so, let’s keep our eyes open to avoid potholes.

Here is my favorite book on astrology and a "must" for anyone interested in learning more: Secrets from a Stargazer's Notebook: Making Astrology Work for You and here's a guide to the best books available this month. This column is (c) 2022 MADAM LICHTENSTEIN, LLC., All Rights Reserved. For Entertainment Purposes Only. Madam Lichtenstein is the author of the best selling astrology book “HerScopes ” now in its 10th printing and available as an eBook.


Aries are not only prepared to delve into the unknown and solve a few mysteries, they are also primed to do a lot of good deeds along the way. So try your best to help rebalance the world  … or at least your corner of it. There are people who need your help but may not ask for it. Your mission is to listen closely and help where you can.


Friendships have always been a balm for you. Now, as your social life reopens in a big way, Taureans are filling up their calendars with a range of fun events with pals. Balance will be important. You don’t want to over-extend or double book. But, then again, you are making up for lost time so take on as much as you can do and enjoy.

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)

Don’t let any stress cause you to make a hasty decision, Gemini. The best use of any focused energy is to take a step back and survey the landscape before you take any action. Then you will have the clarity and strategic acumen to make the right decision at the right time. This is especially true in your career but it can also impact other life areas.

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)

Whatever has been holding you back from traveling or expanding your outlook is suddenly open and free. So take this opportunity, Cancer, to explore where you are and then, who you are. Your ability to emotionally assess any situation will make for positive life changing decisions. Today, the neighborhood. Tomorrow the world.

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)

Not only do you feel especially romantic and bold, you are able to find ways to sweep anyone off their feet with your intense charisma. So what will you do with all of this sexy power, Leo? Will you use it for your own personal purposes or will you leverage this capability to impact larger, global projects? Sometimes you can do both…


Even small disagreements with partners have the potential to loom large now, Virgo. But this can also be a time where you can solidify and strengthen relationships and prime them for future success. Take the time to listen to others and engage in a diplomatic dialogue. Sometimes just allowing others to talk can smooth any rough patches.


Libras who work closely with co-workers may find emotions running higher than usual now. But you have the acumen to understand others and know what to do to regain work harmony. For those Libras who work on their own, this is a great time to reassess where you are and where you want to be. The future is calling you!


Your creativity is hitting a high note now, Scorpio, and you may feel that you need to spring into action. You are bursting with wonderful new ideas that have to be acted upon immediately. This fertile time should be used for any project that requires art and inspiration. What you create now can have long lasting impact as well as personal satisfaction.


What is it about family that has you so stressed, Sagittarius? Is there is too much to do or are others creating obstacles to any plans? Whatever is happening, all you have to do is reach out and talk it through. Sometimes what we think is happening is quite different than what others are actually doing. You can clear the fog and let the sunshine in.


Capricorns often measure their words before they speak. Now you may find that you are talking more extemporaneously, emotionally and unrehearsed. The result is a genuine, connecting message that gets others to listen more easily. So find more ways to channel your ideas and opinions to bigger and bigger audiences. The sky is the limit. 


How much do you really want something, Aquarius? You may overspend on a certain item based on an emotional need rather than a practical one. But as long as you can afford it, why not sprinkle your life with frivolous unnecessary things that only serve to make you a bit happier? Spread the love and joy with others and magnify the impact.


You can make a very intense and emotional impression on others now, Pisces. Your charisma and ability to connect with others is reaching a personal peak. Don’t let this powerful energy evaporate before you get a few things done. Try to expand your influence with those powerful folks who can help you make big things happen in your life.

If money has not been much of a focus for you recently, circumstances and events can make it much more important to you now, Taurus. Start to focus on the bottom line and use whatever practical energies you have to secure any leaks in your wallet. Your power of concentration can lead to more profitable ideas and actions.


If you have ever dreamed of being in the limelight and meeting new and important people, this could be the time to act on your dreams, Taurus. You could be sitting on some great ideas and constructing some powerful personal projects. The time is right to consider how to best move forward. Make your future bright and plan accordingly.

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)

If life delivers you a mystery, Gemini, fine tune your best powers of investigation to solve it now. Not only are you extremely observant, you instinctively know what is going on below the surface of events and can follow all of the clues. Discovery leads to enlightenment. Life becomes more expansive, bright and engaging. Enjoy.

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)

Expand your outreach to friends, friends of friends and even mere acquaintances, Cancer. Your ability to expand your social network will be accelerated now and can lead to very beneficial personal interactions. Prepare for any occasion and any type of person to engage with you. Then let’s see where it will all lead…

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)

Professional meetings have a certain level of coordination and cooperation, Leo. Any big project that requires lots of help and input can be launched successfully. You mind is sharp and able to cut through wasted efforts and useless ideas easily. Participate in any project where you can showcase this remarkable talent. Wow others.


The best things you can do for yourself this week, Virgo, will require you to step out of your comfort zone. It is time to expand your horizons and see what the full world has to offer. Does it mean actual travel? Maybe ... but you can also leverage this brilliant energy with study, experimentation or a new pursuit closer to home.


Whatever pulls at your heartstrings, allow your mind to be pulled along. Libras can be in love with love but now you are thinking a bit more practically, clearly and strategically. Life leads you down some fairly interesting paths. Are you ready for an adventure of the heart or do you prefer something more sedate? It’s your choice.


Focus more on relationship building, Scorpio. There may be some that require a bit more attention and others that may need a readjustment. You have the ability to listen carefully and discern the patterns to form a good plan of what you need to do and with whom. The partnerships that you strengthen now figure prominently later.


If you are embarking on a detailed work project that has many aspects and pitfalls, you are in luck, Sagittarius. Not only can you hyper focus on what really needs to be done, you can also coordinate all efforts to maximum benefit. Look at the game plan, formulate your strategy and move forward with the knowledge that you can win big.


Whatever creative itches you need to scratch, Capricorn, scratch them now. You are awash with great ideas that need to be shared with the world. It is also a good time to spark a romance, take a calculate risk and do something dramatic. Dance your dance, write your great novel or otherwise contribute to the beauty of the moment.


Family reunions can be planned with expertise, Aquarius. So don’t let another day go by before you reach out to relatives and make stronger connections. Life is too short and we can sometimes feel disconnected. You can change that. Your efforts now can make you feel stronger and grounded as the weeks progress.


Not only are you especially eloquent and compelling, Pisces, you find yourself getting in front of people with your amazing insights and plans. Focus your thoughts and prepare your speech. The future can lead to new insights about what you really want to accomplish. Use this time to build a steady foundation for your eventual success.
