We’ll be looking specifically at ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ to see how astrological symbolism pervades the plays.

The astrological process of death and dying

Laura-Boomer-TrentDeath is often taboo a subject. Yet dying is a process we all go through, without exception. In this talk Laura looks at what happens to the everlasting spirit and (almost) immortal soul as a physical body prepares to be released. This is not a talk on when one might die, thought there are various techniques that do show potential timing, more a sharing of astrological insight into creating a ‘healthy’ death, and the different phases of letting go when preparing for an afterlife, to rest in peace. Being aware of what lies ahead also helps to live fully present in the moment, with courage and without fear.

Writer, astrologer and teacher, Laura Boomer-Trent has an arts background with an earlier career in film, television and video. Involved with the holistic world for nearly 30 years, her astrological mentor was the late Howard Sasportas, co-founder of the Centre of Psychological Astrology. Since studying at the ‘Tibetan Medical and Astro-Science Institute’ in India 1996-97, Laura synthesises Western astrology with Eastern philosophy and associated healing arts (Chinese, Vedic and Tibetan). She also pioneered astrology on television with C4’s ‘Astrology Show’ in 1990, and was BBC astrologer for ‘Good Morning…’ Laura also has a busy consultation practice, dividing her time between London and France.

A Digression of Plagues: the astrology of epidemics

MarcosPatchettTraditional astrology was most concerned with timing the appearance and analysing the causality of major epidemics such as the ‘Black Death’ and syphilis. The same techniques can be used to predict and investigate epidemics today. Medical herbalist and astrologer Marcos Patchett shows how.
