Angels and Demons with Carole Bone. Polarity is an astrology basic principal and as we all know, that means there is no light without dark, hot without cold or good without evil. What does that mean for us fulfilling the potential shown in the natal horoscope. What demons within strive to block our Solar Hero from shining in all his glory. Tonight, we take a humorous trip to the Dark Side of the Zodiac.

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. Time 7:00 pm. Followed at 8:30 by The Moon and Food with Jadranka Coic. Do the Moon and her sign, house and aspects tell us about our relationship with food? 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

SPRING EQUINOX

Sun enters Aries 10:29 GMT

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

The Writer's Mercury

Mercury is the planet of writing and communication. The sign - and to some extent, the house - in which this planet is placed dictates the manner in which our thoughts are synthesised and how we relate to the world. In this evening's forum, Jill Shearer looks at the charts of a number of different types of writer, and reflects on how Mercury functions through different signs. 7:30 to 9:30pm at The Isbourne Holistic Centre, 2 Wolseley Terrace, Cheltenham .

The Seven Ages of Man with Pam Blair. Shakespeare's poetic illustration of the stages of life illuminated by the planets shows us that astrology in the 16th century was part and parcel of everyday life. From the Moon to Saturn, from infancy, dependency, the mother and our ability to ingest life to, perhaps, our second childhood and how Saturn in the natal chart will point to how we have learnt and are learning the definitive meaning of life. Bring along your own chart and share your own experiences of growing up with the planets. 7:30pm at The Mary Duffy room on the first floor at the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Centre, 25 Palmerston Place, Edinburgh.

Healing the Body, Healing the Soul: Making the Connections with Jane Ridder-Patrick. Physical symptoms and sensations can be seen as creative expressions of our charts and can act out our inner lives to an exactitude that is often breath-taking. Astrology teaches us that body, mind and spirit are connected in one seamless whole and case studies will demonstrate just how true this is. In this session we will investigate the extraordinary connections between the psychological and spiritual challenges that are shown in the birth map and what may be experienced in the physical body at any one time, so bring your own chart along. 7:30pm at The Mary Duffy room on the first floor at the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Centre, 25 Palmerston Place, Edinburgh.
