Health & Vitality in the Natal Chart

Physical health and the tendency for illness or ill health often has a significant effect on the quality of a person’s life overall or during particular periods.  Often the experience is flavoured by pain, discomfort and often an overwhelming sense of lack.  And why is it that some have better 'health'  than others?  Is it just diet, lifestyle or can it be that the potential for either  good health or illness is hinted at in the nativity?   This workshop will explore the natal indicators for health and vitality overall and determining periods in which these will feature prominently.

The Changing Factors of Wealth in the Chart

It would be too simplistic to divide our client base into a few basic categories but there are definite themes which are a constant in the consulting room or at social gatherings when loved ones corner the family astrologer to ask for clarity about their current situation.   Is it a question of the heart? Am I consolidating a new romance, fortifying an existing relationship, or leaving an old one that has outlived its purpose?  s there a worry over my parent, or my child, where I need to step in to assist them or leave them to their own devices?  Is it time to move, to invest, to upgrade or to down-size?  How do I deal with a difficult work mate or employer, or is there a change in career or life direction?  Regardless of the category to which the question belongs, or how it varies in nature or situation, there is invariably another which immediately follows:  What will be the impact of ........... (insert question) on my current and future financial security?  Most astrologers do not train to be financial advisors. However, there are trends in the chart which give hints as to how the vagaries of life might affect the individual’s wealth. This workshop explores natal and predictive trends which help to give an insight into how the ‘easy’ questions which arise first can lead to the second, and more complicated question, of  ‘Will my finances survive this change?’

Cycles in Natal and Predictive Astrology

There are so many Cycles to discuss when we talk astrology. Cycles for individual planets when they release from natal positions and continue to move through the zodiac; from the shortest monthly cycle of the Moon to Jupiter’s dozen year cycle and Saturn’s Return after twenty eight years to the extended Uranus’ cycle which takes a lifetime of eighty four years to complete. The Sun’s yearly cycle creates a new chart with the Solar Return at each birthday’s celebrations, and the cycle of planetary rulerships through the chart creates the art of Profection. Other cycles of a lifetime activate the planets as time-lords or chronocrators who march through the Chaldean Order as relentlessly as soldiers moving into combat and create one predictive technique known as Firdaria.  Yet other cycles mark the meeting of one planet with another through different synodic periods; playful cycles like the one between the Sun and the Moon which we view in the evening skies, and less visible but often high-impact cycles like the Saturn Pluto conjunction which will be upon us again in 2020.  This workshop explores a variety of cycles which affect our pathway in life. Each individual will experience a different emphasis on particular cycles according to the patterns within their own charts. The knack for an astrologer is to decide which cycle is the most pertinent for themselves, for their loved ones, or for the client at the time in which they meet.

Profession & Status in the Natal Chart

The nature of a person's profession or their ability to have a career is often taken for granted. however not everyone has a profession and not all professions translate into careers.  Using traditional techniques such as Doryphory this workshop looks at the indicators used to determine an individual’s potential or ability to achieve status in life or success, to have a meaningful career or to succeed in a profession.

Using Triplicity Lords in Natal and

Predictive Delineation

One of the central tenets of traditional astrology is that you cannot predict anything that is not already nascent in the natal chart.  What does this mean?  Basically, it means that effective predictive work can only occur if we base it on the individual’s chart.  As astrologers, we must have an intimate knowledge of the potential and possibilities inherent in a chart before we can make forecasts that are meaningful.  This workshop we will explore the concept of Triplicities and their use in helping us determine the specifics of any point or planet in the natal chart and the qualities of its unfoldment over any given period of time.

Experiencing Life Through the Four Angles 

Meeting the Cross of Matter and understanding its significance – the Ascendant and Descendant, the Midheaven and the opposite point of the nadir – is one of the most exciting experiences for any young astrologer starting out on their journey of knowledge. Luckily, the ancients felt exactly the same way.  Marcus Manilius wrote in the first century C.E.:

“Come now, prepare an attentive mind for learning the cardinal points: four in all, they have positions in the firmament permanently fixed and receive in succession the speeding signs.”

 This workshop revisits each of the four angles and looks at their role as the ‘skeleton of the chart’. Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of the title, or by the misguided belief that you know everything there is to know about the angles.  “These points are charged with exceptional powers, and the influence they exert on fate is the greatest known to our science, because the celestial circle is totally held in position by them as by eternal supports.”    If Manilius places so much importance on these four ‘power points’, then maybe we need to look a little closer at the pillars of the four quadrants, and examine in greater depth the impact for each of the planets when they rule the Cross of Matter in any given chart.

Astro*Carto*Graphy & Relocation:

Moving people around the planet

Place is an important factor because our sense of place gives us a sense of belonging and security.  Conversely, as we move around the planet, some places are more daunting while others are welcoming. Our relationship to place can often be the difference between success and ineffectiveness, happiness or desolation. This workshop will explore what planets in the birth chart come to prominence or which ones sink to obscurity as a consequence of moving from one place to another and how these factors play out in the person's experience of the place and its impact on the life.

Turning The Houses to Find the People in My Life

The twelve houses in a chart can have two levels of meaning. The first level depicts the ascendant as the hub of the astrological wheel and follows the principle that the other eleven houses work as spokes which rotate around the central pivot.  The first house plays a central role in the chart and this model is designed to show this crucial house as the animating principle behind the chart. The remainder of the houses represent the concerns of the individual who resides in the first house. The houses relate back to the ascendant in support of the native and for this reason, the topics indicated by the eleven houses are concerned with meeting the native’s physical and emotional needs.  The second level of house interpretations is designed to identify and describe the living sentient beings interacting with the chart-owner, who is still represented by the first house. Relatives and their partners, friends, animals, employers, enemies and all manner of people crowd the remaining eleven houses and a combination of the two levels of house meaning provide a rich backdrop for the individual’s life.  This workshop explores the possibility of combining the two models in order to gain more information about the people in our lives, as seen through our eyes, and also to find patterns within our chart that draw others into our own life experiences.
