Stepping Onto A Path Of Stars:
Practising an Ancient Art in Contemporary Times

with Cat Cox

ENROL

Astrology has always found a way to call us to a deeper more soulful relationship with life which is imbued with pattern and meaning. Across millennia she has perennially adapted to changing times going underground into the psychological streams of the 20th C to remain accessible today. In our modern era, which values the material and rational dimensions of life to the radical exclusion of the soulful and imaginal experience, forging a relationship with astrology may be all the more challenging and precious. So how might we find this path, what might it require of us and what might we discover along the way.

Turning Lead Into Gold: The Transits of Saturn
with Carole Taylor

ENROL

Saturn is both the blackness of lead and the brilliance of crystal. It can bind and trap us through depression, fear or envy, but equally it can bring focus, maturity and discernment. By transit, it often demands our adjustment to the incarnate world, reminding us of mortality and the passage of time – and yet the lead also contains its measure of gold which is slowly revealed through our labours.

We will first briefly explore the meaning of Saturn, calling on myths, on the symbolism of Saturn within alchemy, and Hermetic Saturn as the source of the contemplative melancholy from which creativity springs. We will then turn to the Saturn cycle, and to the transits of Saturn through the houses and in aspect to planets and angles, which bring the ripening of our creative gifts and the unfolding of our mature sense of achievement and purpose in the world.

Uranus Transits to the Natal Chart
with Frances Clynes

ENROL

Break up, break down, break through – transits from Uranus, the great awakener can shock, disrupt and exhilarate. Where the boundaries of Saturn have become rigid in our lives, we shatter them. The ground beneath our feet may not be as stable as we previously thought, and this may terrify or excite us, depending on our natal relationship with Uranus. This seminar will look at transits from Uranus, and using example charts, look at how its position in the natal chart affects our experience of the transit.

The FAS Annual Christmas Seminar
The Winter Solstice
with Cat Cox

ENROL

As the sun crosses the threshold into Capricorn we arrive at the midwinter still point of the year – the Winter Solstice. Since our ancestors aligned their stone temples and cathedrals from Newgrange to Chartres to mark this moment, this has been a time of honouring darkness and celebrating the return of the light. This point of transition, deep in the dark, is a time we can reflect on the passing year and contemplate new beginnings to come and celebrate the joy of light returning – the promise of renewal. On this Winter Solstice we will explore the symbolism of the solstice, consider passing astrological transits and those to come and take a moment to reflect on new seeds we would like to plant for the year ahead.

Midpoints
with Glòria Roca

ENROL

This seminar will introduce you to the technique of midpoints which offers another dimension to looking at the natal chart. According to this technique the functioning of the planets is not only affected by their dignities and debilities and by the aspects they make/receive, but also by the midpoints they occupy. This can put them in a direct and very productive relationship with other planets even though this is not visually apparent in the natal chart as such.

Distinguishing Between Signs and Houses in the Natal Chart
with Stevi Gaydon

ENROL

Good astrological interpretations are so clear that it is easy to identify which planet, sign and house combination is being described.   However, the meaning of the signs and houses is often muddled and this lack of discrimination can lead to confused interpretations that have little or no value.

In this seminar we will focus on the distinctions between the signs (how a planetary energy is manifested) and houses (in which area of life) with the aim of making clear and meaningful interpretations.

The Inner Experience: Secondary Progressions to the Natal Chart
with Frances Clynes

ENROL

When we progress the natal chart, the shape changes, the relationships between the planets change and the angles change signs. Reflecting these changes are changes in our experience of the world, our responses and our outlook. This seminar will focus on what we can expect to discover from secondary progressions and, using example charts, how these changes may have been experienced by the individuals concerned.
