The Astrology of Now You don’t need to be an astrologer to understand that we are living through a pivotal historical moment. But astrology does help us to see the big picture — the weft and weave of history, the patterns that repeat. This month, Christina Rodenbeck will look at the astrology of now and unpick the current astrological tapestry, thread by planetary thread. Christina is a welcome regular speaker at Aquarius Severn. Join the discussion and share your insights into how current events in the world around us are being shaped by the astrology of the times. An Aquarius Severn event. 7:30 to 9:30pm at The Isbourne Holistic Centre, 2 Wolseley Terrace, Cheltenham. Entry is £7 for non-members, £5 for members, £3 for students.

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.

Friday 12th

Synchronicity, Astrology and the Oracle Principle a talk by Phoebe Wyss.The phenomenon of synchronicity, upon which oracles, divination and the art of astrology rest, challenges linear time and the law of physical cause and effect. The correspondences between the movements of the planets in the sky and events in human life, as well as the occurrence of more trivial everyday coincidences, suggest that the inner world of the mind and the outer material world are not as separate as people think. Phoebe will show how synchronicity challenges the mechanistic materialist paradigm by revealing glimpses of other dimensions beyond the physical and can lead to an understanding of how astrology works. At the end of this talk Phoebe will give you a taste of synchronicity in action by inviting you to try out her new astrological oracle game which will also be on sale. A meeting of the Bedford Astrology Club. 7.45 for 8pm start at: St Marks Community Centre, Calder Rise, Bedford MK41 7UY Email: astroshola.co.uk@gmail.com or phone: 07769977639

How to get really good at chart interpretation A talk by Tim Burness. For anyone relatively new to astrology, the basics of natal chart interpretation can seem very complicated. And that’s without the seemingly endless advanced techniques! Drawing on thirty years of extensive experience with thousands of people’s charts, Tim will be clarifying the essentials and looking at what works and what doesn’t. With practice one can uncover the essence of any astrological chart – quickly and precisely. All welcome, although this talk is mainly recommended for beginners and those with some experience of the basics. 7.30pm for 7.45pm start, finish 9.15pm.

The August Solar Eclipse and the Royal Star Regulus An Illustrated Presentation by Pam Carruthers. Solar Eclipses mark endings and beginnings. The Moon’s nodes change sign this year and begin their 18 month journey through Leo and Aquarius. The total Solar Eclipse on 21st August is the first eclipse in this new cycle. It occurs at 28 degrees Leo on the Royal star Regulus, which happens to be on the ascendant of President Trump. “The August 2017 eclipse will be the first with a path of totality crossing the USA’s Pacific coast and Atlantic coast since 1918. Also, its path of totality makes landfall exclusively within the United States, making it the first such eclipse since the country’s independence in 1776.” (Wikipedia) 7.30pm for 7.45pm start, finish 9.15pm.
