How to apply Counselling Techniques in Psychological Astrology
Sunday 9th October 2016 - 15.30-18.00 BST
This practical seminar will address how to work with charts psychologically and will explore the best way to enrich your astrological readings using some basic counselling skills. The first half of the seminar will discuss setting up a good practice such as establishing firm boundaries when working with clients, communication skills, and pin pointing difficulties that one may encounter including unconscious communication. We will then go on to look at charts from the audience to explore ways of communicating astrological truths in an acceptable and healing way for the client.
This seminar will require audience participation so I would like you to offer charts that you have worked with so we can discuss them from a psychological viewpoint. It is not appropriate to bring your own charts for this exercise but rather client charts as long as you have their permission to discuss them without revealing their identity. After booking please send in your charts for use in the seminar by 25th September 2016. It will not possible to put up charts spontaneously on the day.
Uranus and the Vision of Human Potential
Sunday 23rd October 2016 - 15.30-18.00 BST
Revolution was the order of the day when Uranus burst forth unexpectedly into our consciousness, breaking apart our idea of a neat and tidy Saturn-boundaried solar system that had been our known universe for centuries. What is it about this maverick that is a catalyst for change, drives the pursuit of freedom, and pushes for the evolution of consciousness? To help us understand the essence of this powerful archetypal figure and how it operates in the horoscope we will be exploring Uranus in depth - both in what it's discovery meant to humankind and in our personal lives - and also see how a Uranus transit reflects times in our lives when we move out of very stuck, limiting situations to something freer, whether we consciously instigate it or not. We will also look at the planet through the mythic figures associated with Uranus and give examples of well-known Promethean figures who embody this archetype so well.
'Uranus is one of the most chaotic and disruptive systems in the solar system.' Mark Robert Showalter (Senior Research Scientist at the SETI Institute)
Trick or Treat – Mercury as Trickster, Psychopomp and Communicator
Sunday 30th October 2016 - 15.30-18.00 GMT
Mercury is communication – that’s the usual keyword we use in astrology. But what does that really mean. How does Mercury work in all our communications and what about his mythological roles as trickster, psychopomp and a god of the crossroads. In today’s experimental webinar we will be invoking him in his many forms and looking at how he can mean so much more in our chart than how we talk and learn or someone we complain about when he is retrograde. Join John Green on a journey from the intersections of life, into the underworld and back to seek out the full picture of Mercury.
Sunday 6th November 2016 - 15.30-18.00 BST
In this webinar we will revisit Secondary Progressions and consider how this valuable symbolic timing technique provides real insight into the subtle but significant unfolding of the natal chart. Using the graphic ephemeris, we can trace the organic evolution and changing shape of our natal pattern through time, and identify at a glance when planets change direction or sign, heralding profound shifts in our personal landscape. Co-operating consciously with this inherent inner timing can greatly enrich the way we live our lives.
The Moon and Dependency
Sunday 13th November 2016 - 15.30-18.00 GMT
We begin life truly dependent on the care of others for our survival and that pattern of care has a lasting imprint. Breaking the circle of repetition is a powerful act of consciousness, and finding the right timing is essential. How can we use transits and progressions to break into a new emotional life?
Our dependency patterns in adult life, whether they take the extreme form of addictions to drugs and alcohol, or the more hidden path of emotional dependency, are often reflected by the aspects and sign of the Moon. We can be addicted to gaming or gambling, to daily conversations with Mom, to seduction, attention, or money. The Moon tells us where we get sticky and stuck, and even more points us in the direction of the underlying emotions that set it all into movement.
Astrology and Art: The Artist and the Birth Chart
Sunday 27th November 2016 - 15.30-18.00 GMT
When you think of a great artist, do you wonder what might indicate artistry in their birth chart? Do you imagine what might be common to their charts? During this webinar we shall look at the charts, and the works of artists from different times in the European tradition to see if it's possible to find signatures of the artist's vocation. And we shall also consider what might indicate our own capacities in practising The Art of Astrology.
Venue: Online webinar
