When Uranus transits an angle or planet, both our inner and outer worlds can be turned upside down in highly dramatic and exciting ways. Navigating the challenges thrown up by a major Uranus transit and coping with either an overwhelming desire for greater personal freedom, or the reality of actually achieving that freedom, can often be difficult, even for those of us who like change. As well as looking at some of the ways Uranus transits to angles and planets may manifest in our lives – with reference to some interesting and revealing case histories – this seminar also explores the deeper spiritual meaning Uranus transits may have. There will also be some consideration given to how we talk to clients who are about to experience a major Uranus transit.
With synastry astrology offers us a powerful tool to understand our relationships. In this seminar we will begin by considering how the natal chart can bring insight and understanding to our experiences of relating individually and then look at the practice of synastry which examines the patterns and connections between the charts of two people in a relationship which can encompass romantic, familial, business or client relationships. Using natal chart examples we will explore the method of synastry by comparing chart patterns overall, looking at one person’s planets in another’s houses and considering planetary aspects between the charts to develop a meaningful understanding of the relationship and its gifts and challenges.
The nodes of the Moon are mysterious in nature: empty places that mark the crossing of the Sun’s and Moon’s path, always in retrograde motion… almost as being against the natural movement of everything else. Their mysterious nature has also been linked to the myth of dragons, who used to hide in caves protecting great treasures. As the heroes of folk stories, we too are called to meet our own dragon, to answer to a calling and open a door to a mysterious and challenging path in order to become who we are. In this webinar, we will study how to interpret the nodes when doing chart analysis.
The winter solstice on 21st December marks the start of a new cycle of experience and this seminar will explore the symbolism of this time from a variety of perspectives. Although primarily astrological, we will see how the significance of this annual rite of passage has been recognised in mythology and earth-based traditions as well its potential for expanding personal insight and understanding at this time of rebirth. It will also introduce ways of working with the power of the Sun in a meaningful symbolic manner that extends into the rest of the year.
Suitable for beginners, intermediate and advanced attendees, this seminar provides a chance to reflect on the deeper meaning of the season.
Special 3-Part Series with Brian Clark
The Family Portrait: an astrological excursion into the astrology of the family
Our astrological inquiry into the family can be a journey into a fuller understanding of our role and place in society, as well as our relationships with family members. It can also serve as a way to consider responses and patterns that have been shaped by the family, which continue beyond into other relationships. In these three webinars we will focus in on some astrological images that reveal psychic imprints that the family system has etched upon the soul.

Fate and the Family
Part 1 of The Family Portrait.
When considering family patterns and motifs, two trinities of houses are important to consider. The 4th, 8th and 12th, known as the houses of endings, are the spheres most immediately connected with the family atmosphere, legacies and ancestry. However, the houses of relationship, the 3rd, 7th and 11th, also play their role in the spirit of the family. These three houses focus on early patterns of relationship, kinship and the parental marriage. These places shape our sense of belonging and separateness – in this class we will explore the keys to opening these familial houses to see what they might reveal.
In 2021 Saturn and Jupiter spent most of the time in Aquarius, and the North Node in Gemini, all of them making favourable aspects with each other and with Chiron in Aries. Did we experience that global healing already started? During 2021 we faced new challenges, like travel under specific conditions, still being more online than able to hug each other. In 2022, the first and only time after 1856, two co-rulers of Pisces, Jupiter and Neptune, will meet each other in the sign they rule. Does it promise a melting of rules? The North Node will enter Taurus in January 2022 and meet Uranus during the summer 2022. What will happen with our economy with this position? This seminar will discuss those themes and many others, which are linked with planetary positions in 2022.
Part 2 of The Family Portrait
The sibling relationship is potentially our longest-lasting relationship. Yet, as one of our most enduring relationships, it can often be one of our most complex. This class will focus on the sibling as an archetypal and a deeply personal image, emphasizing our relationships with (or without) brothers and sisters and the dynamic impact they have upon our personal development. As an archetypal image we will excavate the horoscopic images of brothers and sisters through the lens of Gemini, the 3rd house, Mercury, Venus and Mars as well as other derivates. Let’s explore this fascinating yet often under-stated relationship story through the lens of the horoscope.
Part 3 of The Family Portrait
Family holds a fated quality, as we often are compelled to repeat patterns recycled through the lineage of the family. Through horoscopic patterns in our chart, as well as family members’ horoscopes, we can trace these inherited patterns. During the seminar we will explore family fate through the shadows and dysfunctions that are passed down the family line. Family patterning will also be explored through the phases of the family and its life cycle as it moves through time. We will also examine ways in which these patterns can be viewed astrologically through family charts and how these may manifest through specific astrological symbols.
All planets return to their natal place after one full circuit of the zodiac and we can pinpoint to the exact arc-second when this will occur. The return of the Sun of course gives us the Solar Return chart, set either for the birthplace or the place you happen to be at the time. For as much as the Solar Return tells us something about our creative journey over the coming year and the Lunar Return something about the emotional dynamics of the coming month, so we can apply the same idea to the other planets. This session will introduce the Return Charts of Mercury, Venus and Mars as illuminating and useful additions to our forecasting toolkit.
