Seeing Eye to Eye: the Astrology of Brothers and Sisters

Sunday 28th Jan 2024 - 15.30-18.00 GMT

Our siblings can be companions or rivals, mirrors for the best and worst of ourselves. How wonderful to have a sibling as a guide, how terrible to encounter a bully. These first relationships  carry an important imprint for later life, they affect our capacity for distance and closeness, our ability to communicate, to connect and let go. There are often powerful stories to unwind as we get older. The idealized sibling, the troubled brother or sister, or the one struck by some kind of fate, all play a huge role in our future selves. The third house is traditionally associated with siblings, and its “shadow houses”  the second and eighth, speak to the issues of envy and possession, always so prominent in these relationships. Examples from class participants will be welcome.

Opening Jung’s “The Red Book” – Suggestions for Getting Started
Sunday 4th Feb 2024 - 15.30-16.45 GMT

Carl Jung’s “The Red Book,” first published in 2009 though originally written starting in the autumn of 1913, is a raw, intimate, and mysterious book sitting at the foundation of Jungian psychology. Open “The Red Book” and what springs forth is an altogether different experience than that of reading the Collected Works, barely recognizable as the Jung we know through terms like introversion, extroversion, and psychological types. “The Red Book” resembles something more like a work of archetypal psychology emerging from James Hillman, Rafael López-Pedraza, or Patricia Berry.


If you are interested in “The Red Book” but are not sure where to begin, this webinar offers numerous suggestions on how to approach the massive work. This includes an overview of its contents, how it differs markedly from the Collected Works, and the backdrop of what led Jung to create it in the first place, relying on active imagination and his knowledge of astrology more than anything. While challenging, a deep dive with Jung into “The Red Book” provides an enormous amount of insight into the whole of Jungian psychology. This webinar is a springboard to get you started and is useful even if you are already familiar with the book.

One hour talk followed by short Q&A session.

This session is included in the course fees of Year 1 and 2 Diploma students.

The Descendant and Partner Choices
Sunday 11th Feb 2024 - 15.30-18.00 GMT

As a couples therapist my bread and butter is to work out how this often complex cliché ridden pattern of ‘opposites attract‘ affect our relationships. Astrology has helped me many times to get a clearer picture of these patterns and how they play out. In this webinar we will shed light on this fascinating topic by sharing certain rules which makes it easier to define ‘what kind of partner‘ a native will attract.

We will be looking at: the sign on the descendant and its polarity with the ascendant; the house in which the ruler of the descendant is placed; the aspects of the descendant ruler; and planets in the 7th house. All of these have a profound effect on our partner choices and how harmonious or challenging our relationship patterns may play out. As well as the theory, I will present many charts in order to demonstrate how my guide works.

Interpreting the Whole Chart

Sunday 18th Feb 2024 - 15.30-18.00 GMT

The challenge in reading a chart is to bring the component parts together so that a sense of the whole person begins to form. Each chart contains its unique arrangement of planetary configurations, placements and house rulerships, the whole a map of the individual rendered in symbolic form. As we analyse and then synthesise the material, ideas emerge about what moves and motivates this particular individual, as we work to gain a sense of the flesh-and-blood person behind the archetypal pattern. This seminar will offer practice in reading whole charts, first gathering the information and then weaving it together to arrive at a sense of the chart’s main themes.

Not only can you command a crowd, Aries, you are much better able to shape public opinion with your impressive ideas. Find more ways to get into certain groups or organizations and see where you can ascend into a leadership role and really make a difference. Get your thinking cap on and see what needs to be done.


Long term plans may need a reassessment, Taurus. Take a pause and see where you are, especially professionally but also in other important areas. Sometimes timelines change and sometimes priorities shift. This is an excellent time to see where you are and where you really want to go. Attainment and success is at hand.

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)

What worldly endeavor sparks your imagination and enthusiasm, Gemini? What do you need to re-energize and rejuvenate your life’s path? Spend time now assessing the possibilities and directions. Now is perfect the time to take a calculated risk and do something that gets you out of your comfort zone and into adventure.

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)

Your heart leaps at the opportunity to find greater passion and zest in your life. That may mean addressing some deep seated personal issues, Cancer. But you are not only up to the task, you might even embrace it. Unleash yourself from any emotional constraint that may prevent you from celebrating your true self.

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)

Connections are very important to you, Leo, and that means that spending some time seeking the right ones is time well spent, especially now. There may be some lapsed relationships that need a re-charge and maybe others that need more constant outreach. Do all of that and, while you’re at it, seek a few brand new ones.


Your mind is sharp, Virgo, and your ability to express yourself clearly and correctly is at a high point. So look towards those projects, especially at your day-to-day job that require extra concentration and focus. Now is the time to polish off anything on your desk that has been gathering dust. It will feel great when it is all done!


Plan a few parties and mine all fun and creative outlets, Libra. Your imagination is bursting with new and delightful ideas of what to do and who to do it with. Who knows? This could be a time of increased romantic possibilities. The important thing is to put yourself out there and maintain your innate charisma.


Find more ways to connect with relatives and other close companions. Not only will you find that others are waiting for your first move, they are willing and ready to become more involved in your life if that is what you want, Scorpio. Your home life and personal surroundings figure prominently in your life now. Make it all comfy.


Sagittarians are known to be expressive, honest and chatty. And now, you are even more so. Embrace your grand thoughts, pithy opinions and prescient ideas and don’t be afraid to share all with the world … or at least in your own community. There is no telling where this will take you in the long term. Politics may be calling you!


Now happens to be a great time to solidify your finances, Capricorn. Your mind is focused, practical and sharp and just perfect for long term planning. Do the necessary research and take calculated risks. Build your fiscal foundation, try to lower your costs if possible and get on the road to an early and cushy retirement.


You now find yourself in the center of all of the attention, Aquarius. Your orbit expands and your ability to attract a range of admirers is unsurpassed. Time is of the essence in your social ascent. Focus and think - What can you do and who can you meet that will set you on a course of personal success? Survey, decide and act.


Not only are you especially intuitive now, Pisces, you are able to discern many things that are operating just below the surface of life. You gain added insight from pulling back and meditating on an issue. The answers seem to come from the fog of the mind. See where you can make a difference for any charitable cause.

Lottery ads tell us you only need a dollar and a dream. But it is also helpful to have a list of lucky numbers to help spur the good fortune ... or fortunes. So with that in mind, here are some lucky numbers that can be used in any helpful way. I gazed into a pool of water, Nostradamus-like, and contemplated the cosmos. Then I mixed the tarot cards and allowed the spirits to guide me to the cards that represent the lucky numbers for this week. Nothing is guaranteed but who knows ....?

I choose eight numbers because 8 is the number of of wealth.

Your professional goals receive an impressive boost, Aries. This is because not only have you been working hard, you’ve also been working smart. Now is the time to put your long term goals into action. Meet and greet those with the authority and power to give you an advantage in any contest you really want to win.


Your expansive outlook not only leads you to more interesting and stimulating company, it also provides you with life changing experiences. Your ability to connect with others of many different backgrounds and opinions gives you more perspective. So set your navigation system on forward, Taurus, and see where life leads.

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)

Your heart can open in an impressive way now, Gemini. Allow yourself to love large and feel deeply, taking some risk with certain folks. If you are able to mine the depths of your emotional state, you may find new answers to old questions about what motivates you. It can be a time of reawakening and refreshment. Ah!

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)

Relationships give you a psychic boost, Cancer. That means that anyone who may be perceived as a roadblock can now be approached and even, perhaps, made satisfied. Find ways to strengthen certain important connections, build new ones and possibly repair old crusty ones. Your ability to discern what is needed is valuable.

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)

There were times when you felt there is simply too much to do and not enough time to do it. But now, Leo, you seem to be infused with an extra burst of energy and stick-to-it-ness. So venture forth and see how much you can accomplish now. You not only find willing help but this help makes even a task feel like fun.


Your creativity is not only highly charged, Virgo, it is especially practical. That means that even something that sounds frivolous like a party, winds up having a tremendous personal benefit for you in the long term. See where you can enliven the scene and be sure that the right people are invited to any festive event.


What is it about your home that needs a little oomph or improvement? Whatever it is, you not only find the areas of need but can also tackle them efficiently and successfully. Libras need balance and harmony around them. Don’t let 2024 go by without finding more ways to achieve the happiness you richly deserve.


You seem to know just what to say to get others to do what you want, Scorpio. Don’t waste this gift on nonsense. Find ways to get your best ideas across that not only reach and impress others but also changes life for the better. Sometimes you need to start locally. Get involved in community projects and go from there.


Not only does your money situation brighten up a bit, you are able to put ideas and actions into place right now that set you on a more stable and foundational fiscal course through the year. So do your research, Sagittarius, and decide to make your money work better for you. That may mean a stricter budget … for now.


You are bright and beautiful, Capricorn. Your charisma is turned on high and you are able to overcome any shyness to meet and greet important contacts. Make the most of this time to plant the seeds for your future success. Maybe even consider a new “look” that gives you more panache and style. Dress to impress.


There are so many things swirling around in the background, you can be forgiven for feeling a bit foggy, Aquarius. But this cosmic fog is really your intuition telling you some secrets. Your ability to transcend to a higher meditative plane enables you to achieve some pretty impression charitable things. Build up your good karma.


Whatever friendships can provide you on a very satisfying level, they deliver them for you now, Pisces. Get involved in a range of new and interesting groups to see where you can make a difference. There will be times when you might feel overwhelmed by the possibilities, but you can handle anything. Your popularity soars!
