Sacred Space – Carole Taylor

13th March – 7:00    

                                                                                                          

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.

 

Carole Taylor is Director of Studies and Summer School programme co-ordinator at the Faculty of Astrological Studies, where she has taught for 16 years and contributed extensively to the teaching material. She runs an astrological practice, has co-tutored workshops for ‘Heaven and Earth’ in Bali, and holds an MA in Myth, Cosmology and the Sacred.

Triplicity Phase Rulership – Nicola Smuts

20th March – 7:00  

 

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 extend to directing the Almuten of Pregnancy by triplicity phase rulership as well.  This method helps indicate a broader understanding of if 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.

 

Nicola Smuts Allsop is a consulting astrologer living in the United Kingdom (UK). Originally from South Africa, she completed her first studies at the Rod Suskin School of Astrology in Cape Town, and completed a Diploma in Medieval Astrology with Astrologos (Bernadette Brady) in the UK. Nicola has recently graduated from Canterbury Christ Church University, with a Master’s Degree in Myth, Cosmology and The Sacred. Author of the soon to be published FERTILITY ASTROLOGY, A Modern Medieval Textbook, Nicola has specialised in this field and has undergone fertility treatment herself. She is a mother of two adult children and can empathise and understand the pain and the desperation of trying to conceive. Nicola lectures internationally on her fertility work and her research and methods in this field are pioneering and unique. Her success in diagnosing fertility issues in charts and finding potentially fertile times to try In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) and other reproductive treatments has been published in The Sunday Times (London), The London Times, and the Daily Mail. Her work has also been featured on national television (Free Spirit, Top Billing) in South Africa

Basic Medieval Astrology Principles (1) – Chris Mitchell

27th March – 7:00

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.

Where does our art come from? A little bit of history.

Meet the actors: The Planets.

Where they hang out: The Signs.

What they like doing: The Houses.

Who’s the Daddy? Finding your Almuten (practical session).

Finding your Almuten – your strongest planet.

Vakri Graha, the Retrograde Planets – Komilla Sutton

Komilla-Sutton18th April 2016

7:00PM

Vakri means twisted, ambiguous and evasive. The quality of the planet changes when it retrogrades. Often people with retrograde planets hold back their true self and find it difficult to adjust to life. Understanding their impact makes us work outside the box and learn to cope with the nature of our planets.  Komilla will discuss their impact natally or by transit and how they are assessed in Vedic Astrology.

Komilla Sutton is an internationally renowned consultant, teacher and lecturer.  Her Academy teaches online study programs. She is the co-Founder & Chair of the British Association of Vedic Astrology, has been leading trips to India since 1999 and sponsoring Vedic Astrology Conferences.
