  • Kathryn Andren: Astrology and Mystical Kaballah 

    Kabbalah is a language for life, like astrology.  Kabbalah is ancient wisdom from the esoteric Jewish tradition revealing how the universe and life works. This short lecture introduces some of the cosmic connections in heaven and earth between the Hebrew letters, the visible planets, Zodiac signs and elemental energies.

  • Wendy Stacy: Unaspected Planets - Sleeping Dogs

    How do we interpret planets that do not have any major aspects to other planets in the birth chart. How do these planets connect and try to integrate with all the other dynamics in the horoscope. This talk will look at how 'unaspected planets' can behave and express themselves and explore the limited resources available that can either bottle or unleash them.

  • Julie Yeaman: Same Chart Different Paths 

    Same chart virtually, and yet, so often, very different expressions. What is going on? The charts selected for this short chart will speak to this question and hopefully raise some lively astrological debate. .

  • Boaz Fyler: The Death Chart: A Journey Continued 

    Death charts are dramatic. They catch the moment in time the soul chose to continue on its journey. Together we will see how both the moment of birth and the moment of death are each spelling the same truth in different words. Like mirror images they speak of the same karmic lessons and show us that our learning process is eternal.
