Online Workshops

To supplement your online learning, we now offer Online Workshops from time to time. These are typically three 2-hour sessions with limited enrolment, open to Faculty students and to guests with appropriate astrological experience.

Foundation Level Workshops

Natal Chart Interpretation

Increase your skills in natal chart analysis.
Build confidence in articulating the main themes of a chart. 

Here is your chance to engage in the process of interpreting a natal chart, from start to finish, in a supportive workshop setting. We’ll discuss each step along the way, beginning with our initial reactions to the chart to the time when we put it all together to articulate the chart’s main themes. It’s a great way to practise the Faculty’s systematic approach to interpretation.

The Natal Chart Interpretation Workshop is ideal for anyone who has completed Modules 1, 2 and 3 – even for Diploma Level students who want to polish their skills. If you are not yet a Faculty student but have similar training using our psychological approach to astrology, you are most welcome to join us!

As in all Online Workshops, you will be actively involved with your classmates and your tutor. It’s an opportunity to ‘think out loud’ with each other. You’ll find great value in this collaborative experience.

All participants should have experience interpreting:

  • The distribution of planets by polarity, elements and modes
  • Chart shaping and imbalances, if any
  • Planets in their signs and houses
  • The four angles of the chart
  • The Sun-Moon relationship
  • The Nodal Axis
  • Planets as rulers of angles and houses
  • Aspects and aspect patterns

£135 for 6 hours of interactive study (one 2-hour session each week for 3 weeks). Prior to booking, please read the Conditions of Enrolment.

Intermediate Level Workshops

Electional Astrology - the art of aligning our plans with the heavens

When we elect a chart we recognise that we are working in a different way with astrology to interpreting a chart. Rather than engaging with symbols and patterns to access meaning we are sifting through moments of time evaluating the strength and position of the planets in the heavens to choose a moment of inception. In this workshop we will consider what it may mean to choose a time, look at the fundamental principles which underpin all electional work and establish a set of clear guidelines for working with the more complex elections for our individual purposes. We will practice some key principles in the workshop and work through a practical example. Bring your ephemeris – 21st C or for 2022.

Students are expected to have a solid grounding in Foundation Level astrology and have an understanding of forecasting.

Date to be scheduled.


Natal Chart Interpretation + Forecasting

Practise your forecasting skills.
Consider how best to convey the information to a client.

This workshop is intended for students who have completed Modules 4 and 5 and who want to practise their forecasting skills. Others are welcome to enrol, provided they have experience interpreting:

  • Transits
  • Solar Return charts
  • Secondary Progressions
  • Solar Arc Directions

One week before the workshop begins, you will be sent a natal chart and will be asked to prepare some thoughts about it. At the start of the first session, we’ll discuss the main themes of the chart, which is a vital part of any consultation and the basis of creating a forecast. From there, we will consider how to prioritise the many forecasting factors, using our findings to extract and describe the main forecasting themes for the period in question. In addition, we will consider how to discuss our interpretations with a client.

£155 for a series of 3 sessions. Prior to booking, please read Conditions of Enrolment.
