Jupiter – Inspiring a Love for Life!
with Lindsay Gladstone
Revered by the ancient Romans and Greeks as king of the gods, lord of thunder and lightning, Jupiter symbolizes the joyful experience of growth and expansion through exploration and wisdom. Jupiter inspires us to give generously of ourselves and to seek a personal philosophy by which to live. Ruler of Sagittarius and traditional ruler of Pisces, in this seminar using example charts we will explore the exuberance of Jupiter through the filter of the zodiac signs, aspects and its rulership of houses and Angles.

The Beholder's Eye: Venus in the Natal Chart
with Toby Aldren
Venus in the natal chart suggests what we love, how we love, and who we love. It shows what brings us happiness and tells how we prefer to give and receive affection. Venus can shape our self-worth and contribute to what we feel we deserve. Yet there is darker side to this planet of love and harmony, as Venus can be prone to feelings of jealousy and rivalry. Sometimes a ‘strong’ Venus may actually curtail the impulse to assert one’s will, resulting in dissatisfaction. As part of the seminar, we will examine a few sample charts to decipher how Venus sees beauty.

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

Putting It All Together
with Carole Taylor
This seminar will offer practice in reading a whole chart, from first steps in gathering information, through interpretation of complexities such as aspect patterns and house rulership, to finding the main themes of the chart and organising your notes and ideas in preparation for a written interpretation. We will work on a case study chart which will be sent to you by email in advance of the session. In order to follow the seminar, you will need to have completed (or have a working knowledge of the material contained in) Modules 1 and 2, plus the ‘chart imbalances’ and ‘retrograde motion’ sections in Module 3.

The Consultation – Preparation and Practice
with Cat Cox
Handling the live consultation can sometimes feel like a juggling act as we begin to work with clients and learn how to integrate our consultation skills with the astrological interpretation. In this seminar we will reflect on what it means to work with a client astrologically and then look at the whole consultation process step by step. Starting with the first contact with the client and working through the key stages in the consultation – the beginning, middle stage and the ending – we will consider how we can best structure and navigate this process to help build confidence in our practice.
