Israel Ajose: Numerology as a diagnostic and healing tool
Our universe is built on numbers and mathematics, everything within our perception can be measured through numbers, in this lecture I will be demonstrating how one can use Numerology to gain insight into how we can measure illnesses and diseases through the art and science of Numerology, and methods of how to bring the body back into balance, there will also be some references to Astrology also.

Israel Ajose D. Psych. Astrol is a dedicated student and teacher of astrology, a transpersonal therapist and consultant, and the director of astrology of the (psyche) soul, a school of thought which presents a model of astrology that aims to provide students and clients with both powerful diagnostic tools for understanding and navigating personality development and growth by incorporating astrology elements of Jungian psychology and various philosophies throughout the world.

Much of his studies and practices also include cosmology, mythology, occult sciences, Kabbalah, shamanism and divination.

Laura_Boomer-TrentLaura Boomer Trent: Moon Medicine
The restorative and often magical power of the Moon lies in Luna’s natural monthly cycle and triple-fold ability to 1) reflect sunlight, which is then filtered through astrology’s informative elements, signs and seasons, 30 days of a lunar month, and hour; 2) to support harmonious levels and flow of fluid (and emotion) in the body; so that 3) the subtle body monthly resonance (within the chakra/endocrine system) is in natural and expressive harmony with the psycho-spiritual anatomical body to maintain optimum health. With each month’s dependable and definite windows of opportunity to heal and recoup body and soul, such as 1st and last quarters, the effects of each lunation also differs for men and women in strength and concentrated influence. This talk studies the relation between ‘The Lights’ as well as sacral and throat/third-eye chakras, with herbs, flowers and mantra, as modes of moon medicine.

Sharon Knight

Sharon Knight

Sharon Knight: Healing with Humour.

Brief Description: We will be looking at the four humours in astrology and how the mix of hot, dry, wet and cold can influence a person’s well-being. This concept dates back to Hippocrates and was brought into prominence by the works of Galen, Paracelsus and Avicenna. We shall look at ways of assessing the Temperament or Humoural make up in a chart, and how we can perhaps regulate our health by balancing our humours.

She studied with the Faculty gaining her Intermediate Diploma, then qualified as a QHP under Olivia Barclay. She holds an MA in Cultural Astronomy and Astrology.

Shelley von Strunckel

Shelley von Strunckel

Shelley Von Strunckel : Newspaper Stars – A Very Personal and Private Rendezvous with the Reader
As is the case with most serious astrologers, Shelley von Strunckel dismissed the Sun sign led variety of astrology found in newspapers and magazines as a corruption of proper astrology. Now she writes such columns, daily, weekly and monthly stars, which are published worldwide, in several languages.
She’ll discuss the journey led her to alter those convictions and why she strongly believes this popularised presentation is a crucial element of astrology.

Shelley von Strunckel
Although currently best known for her widely published astrology columns, Shelley von Strunckel’s first career was in marketing. During this period, she was an enthusiastic student of Eastern and Western philosophies, including astrology. For several years she was the protégé of Boris de Zirkoff, who edited new editions of the writings of Helena Petrovona Blavatsky, founder of the Theosophical Society. This blend of commercialism and philosophy shaped her thinking and her life.
It was only after de Zirkoff’s death that she began actually working as an astrologer, initially with private clients exclusively. The columns came a decade later. Today she continues to write, and blending these disciplines, speaks on the changes reshaping the world around us, the way we live and even think.

Judy Hall - Feb 2010Judy Hall: A curse or a gift? The indicators of karmic dis-ease.
Judy Hall is a successful Mind Body Spirit author with over 40 books to her credit including the million selling Crystal Bible (volumes 1, 2 and 3).
She has been a past life therapist and karmic astrologer for over 40 years. An internationally known author, psychic, healer, broadcaster and workshop leader, her books have been translated into fifteen languages. She recently appeared in the Watkins Review of the one hundred most spiritually influential authors.

Jane Hastings: The Final Journey
‘I’m not afraid of death; I just don’t want to be there when it happens.’ So said Woody Allen. Perhaps that is how many of us feel; for Death is the single certain event that will come to us all. Nevertheless very few of us will discuss or prepare for our final journey. Today Jane will open up the topic whilst sharing positive experiences of being a companion to the dying – both in her professional and personal life. Whilst exploring the healing process she has so often witnessed, Jane will show examples of synchronous events in various horoscopes.

Jane-HastingsJane Hastings is a Registered Nurse with over 40 years nursing experience. A specialist in Palliative Care; she has spent several decades working with dying patients and their families’. She has a Diploma in Counselling and, interested in astrology for many years, gained her Faculty Diploma in 2001. A student of various esoteric disciplines Jane has always been concerned with the Big Questions. She is involved with a number of small astrology groups and has been assistant tutor on the LSA courses in Glastonbury.

Wanda_SellarWanda Sellar : Health and the Houses
This talk describes how to judge the strength and weakness of the houses in health terms and how it might be possible to help maintain health and energy with that knowledge.

Wanda Sellar is the author of ‘Introduction to Medical Astrology’, and ‘The Consultation Chart’ published by Wessex Astrologer, who is also preparing ‘Introduction to Decumbiture Astrology’. She is a former president of the Lodge, and the current editor of the Astrological Association’s ‘Astrology & Medicine Newsletter’. This weekend she is launching a pilot course in Basic Medical Astrology, leaflets on this course are available at the front desk.

Sue_TompkinsSue Tompkins Astrology, health & diet.
If we are what we eat, does that mean the horoscope can describe what we tend to eat and what we ‘should’ eat for good health? Given that astrological symbolism is capable of describing everything about us, the answer must be a cautious ‘yes’. And yet, we know very little about this most controversial of subjects called ‘diet’. Today Sue will share what little bit of knowledge she feels she might have.

Sue Tompkins is a Registered practising homeopath who discovered astrology in 1972 when she was a student nurse. A teacher and consultant for over thirty years, she has also had training in nutrition and psychology. She lectures widely at home and abroad and is the author of best-selling titles: The Contemporary Astrologer’s Handbook and Aspects in Astrology.

Solar Eclipse Paths and the Fate of Mankind – Keith Magnay

Keith-Magnay8.30pm – Keith Magnay

Keith Magnay has been pondering the historical process and the human condition for over 40 years and the relationship between astrology, the individual and history for 30. Two years ago he was prompted to investigate the connections between eclipses and the historical process. Analysing the graphics showing the paths of the shadows over the earth during solar eclipses in Solar Fire’s Solar Maps he noticed that those that passed over political communities often correlated with major historical conflicts and shifts in power relations. This led to his publishing in May 2013, of The Wheals of God, 1801-2026, which he describes as the equivalent of the Origin of Species for understanding how history and human conflict work. This talk will give examples of the connections between solar eclipse paths and the major conflicts of the past two hundred years, explore the implications of these correlations and look at current and near future eclipses and their likely destabilising effects.

Keith has a BA in History and Sociology from York University and was a print journalist for a full Saturn cycle, facilitating a Jupiter/Saturn cycle of global travel. In a full life he has been a local councillor, strike leader, entrepreneur, financial consultant and Rosicrucian Adept. He has spoken before to the Lodge on Existential Astrology and has written for the AA journal

on mundane astrology, including the conflict in Syria, Scottish independence and the Euro. He is also trained in shamanic soul retrieval, past live regression therapy and soul-based astrology providing these services through
