Always Forward, Never Backward? The Phenomenon of Retrograde Planets
with Christian Koenig
Retrograde planets don’t have a good press in astrology. There are many astrological approaches for interpreting them, often recommending re-activities: re-flecting, re-orienting, re-vising, re-capitulating … If one works with a one-dimensional model of the sky, a retrograde planet actually does only one lap of honour. But that’s an illusion. If we look to the sky, we see that a retrograde planet suddenly takes wings: it rises, it leaves the ecliptic, it draws a loop in the sky. What do these loops mean? How can we interpret them in astrology?
Two Seminars with Brian Clark
Brian Clark, creator of the Astro*Synthesis distance learning program, has been an astrological student, consultant and educator for 40+ years. His latest book Astrological Time Seasons of the Soul (May: 2021) considers the ambiguities of time and how astrological techniques help us to navigate its mysteries. www.astrosynthesis.com.au
These are morning seminars in the UK :
7th and 14th August, 10-11.30am BST
When the Transpersonal Transects the Personal
When the slower-moving planets (Jupiter – Pluto) make dynamic aspects to the Luminaries, Mercury, Venus or Mars, something beyond our personal boundary has been inherited, often through cultural, ancestral or familial systems. This forceful combination is again triggered when the slower-moving planet reaches a critical passage in its cycle, as at this time, both the generic and personal transits re-form the natal complex. My intention for our classes is to sharpen our focus on these potent symbols of our horoscope.
Part 1 – 7th August – 10.00-11.30am BST
Powerful Patterns in the Natal Chart – when outer planets overwhelm
We will first consider the dynamic combinations of inner and outer planets exploring the potent patterns they suggest. We will prioritize our planetary aspects, looking at what these planetary combinations might suggest from a familial and cultural perspective.
Part 2 – 14th August – 10.00-11.30am BST
Generic and Personal Transits – when the pattern repeats in time
Here in Part 2, we will study the cyclic times when the generic and personal transits re-form this natal aspect. These passages invite us to find deeper meaning and resonance with the part of our life that is imaged by the natal planetary combination.
All participants will receive notes about how to prepare for these classes. Book early.
£65 for both seminars
