2020 and Beyond A talk by Wendy Stacey. In 2020 we will experience the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius which will be the first of a series of conjunctions in the air element and which we have not seen for over 600 years. How might the transition of this cycle moving from the earth element to the air element affect how we live and what changes might we expect? This conjunction will be followed by Pluto's ingress into Aquarius in 2024 which will add to these changes and spearhead society into a new age, unprecedented in human society. This talk will explore the possibilities presented by these cycles. Time 7:00 pm. Followed at 8:30 by by The Moon (1) with Sue Farebrother. Followed by Chart Discussion. Venue: the Astrological Lodge of London, The Theosophical Society in England, 50 Gloucester Place, London W1U 8EA www.astrolodge.co.uk

Astromapping and How to do It a talk by Rod Chang. In the 1970s two astrolocality skills - Astro*Carto*Graphy and Local Space - were introduced to astrologers. Both techniques present planetary influences on the world map, making it much easier for the astrologer to understand what place has particular influences for a client. In this talk, Rod will share his studies: how to use astromap to find a better place to live; where to relocate to for the best career or where to go for a relaxing (or romantic) holiday. 7.30pm for a 7.45pm start until 9.15pm. at The Cornerstone Community Centre, Hove BN3 2FL.Brighton Astrology Circle

24th - 26th: Faculty of Astrological Studies Winter Weekend Gateways to the Soul: Exploring the Moon and the Nodal Axis with Cat Cox, Glòria Roca Riera & Deborah Morgan. The Winter Weekend is designed for students familiar with natal chart work. It offers scope to explore the imaginative world of the Moon and the Nodes in the natal chart from cosmological, symbolic and experiential perspectives. Bringing awareness to the symbolic patterns of the Moon and the Nodes helps shape our self-awareness and support our emergence into a more rounded understanding of ourselves. Students will work in-depth with their own charts and those of their fellow students in pairs, small groups and in plenary teaching sessions, which will be held in comfortable and informal surroundings. The solar eclipse on 26th February at 8°12 Pisces (14.58 GMT) brings the relevance of the nodal axis into tangible experience, and this will be recognised in the course.

Sacred Space A talk by Carole Taylor. This talk explores the technique of Local Space. Dropping our planets down onto the local horizon, we can map our chart onto any place or space - a country, a town, a building, our own home or office. The Local Space map opens up a whole new world, showing how the psyche relates to the physical landscape and how it unconsciously expresses itself in the way we arrange our living and working spaces - and how, through conscious rearrangement, we can make these places into a positive form of self-expression, both healing and transformative.

SPRING EQUINOX

Triplicity Phase Rulership A talk by Nicola Smuts. Directing the Asc and main Luminary by triplicity in order to understand a broader life flow, is fairly commonplace. Nicola has extended this well known technique to directing the Almuten of Pregnancy by triplicity phase rulership as well. This method helps towards a broader understanding of whether someone is more likely to get pregnant when they are in their twenties or in their late thirties and helps explain the phenomena of "secondary infertility". Several charts will be shown as examples. Time 7:00 pm. Followed at 8:30 by Lodge Ritual. Venue: the Astrological Lodge of London, The Theosophical Society in England, 50 Gloucester Place, London W1U 8EA www.astrolodge.co.uk

BRITISH SUMMER TIME BEGINS

Monday 27th

Basic Medieval Astrology Principles (1) A talk by Chris Mitchell. Modern astrology is awash with techniques - we have ten planets, thousands of asteroids, midpoint trees, sesquiquadrates, quintiles and semi-septiles to play with, and a whole new psychological language to explain concepts to our clients. How on earth did mediaeval astrologers work using just seven planets and five aspects? It's true that as modern astrologers, we've added a lot of new toys to our box - but we've also thrown out a lot of old but very useful ones too: peregrination, reception, dignity, derived houses, firdaria, Arabic Parts, lunations and almutens are just some of the wonderfully elegant concepts that we've all but lost. In this workshop, Chris Mitchell will be describing some of these techniques, and there will be practical sessions so you can use these medieval techniques in your own charts. Come along and find out why syzygy is more than just a high-scoring Scrabble word, and where your Part of Bondage is! All astrologers welcome, but please hand in your Pluto and Chiron at the door. They'll be returned to you when you leave. Time 7:00 pm. Followed at 8:30 by Basic Medieval Astrology Principles (2) Putting it to use. Followed by Chart Discussion. Venue: the Astrological Lodge of London, The Theosophical Society in England, 50 Gloucester Place, London W1U 8EA www.astrolodge.co.uk
