Faye Cossar
Pluto and his Mother-in-Law Ceres
Sunday 28th January 2018 - 15.30-18.00 GMT

Now Ceres is on an equal footing with Pluto, should we use her in our work?

Ceres, who had been a planet until 1850, and was then categorized as an asteroid, became a dwarf planet in 2006, which put her on a par with Pluto. Ceres (Demeter) is the sister of Jupiter, Neptune and Pluto, and as such was important in the Greek hierarchy. She was worshipped far and wide by Romans and Greeks, and in astrology has become a major earth and fertility goddess, best known for the myth ‘The Rape of Persephone (Proserpina) ’. But she is far more than this. A major feminine archetype, her upgrade means that her themes are coming back into consciousness. The green movement, the women’s movement, natural cycles, genes, food, and agriculture are all part of her remit. Faye will look at the astronomy, history and the myth of Ceres and her relationship with Pluto. By presenting case studies showing Ceres in mundane and individual work, she suggests meaning and themes that can be given to this dwarf planet. What is coming into consciousness and how can we (also as astrologers) make use of her energies in today’s world?

The Great Work - The Person not the Chart
Sunday 11th February 2018 - 15.30-18.00 GMT

The Great Work or Magnum Opus is an alchemical term for the process of creating the philosopher's stone. It has been used to describe personal and spiritual transmutation in both magical and psychological systems. How do we use our chart as a basis for the Great Work? We have to remember that the map is not the territory and so the chart is not the person. When we work with our chart, or that of our clients, how do we connect to what is important within it to help us develop and individuate. What techniques can we apply to find wholeness? Today’s webinar will explore the nature of this Great Work in relation to the birth chart.

Planets in Capricorn – What is a Mer-goat?
Sunday 25th February 2018 - 15.30-18.00 GMT

Capricorn, often considered the most “realistic” and disciplined of signs—ruled by Saturn—is, curiously, symbolized by one of the most peculiar symbols in the entire zodiac: the mythic, imaginary mer-goat, sea-goat, or goat-fish.

Pluto is currently moving slowly through Capricorn, accompanied by Saturn in December 2017. In January of 2020, Saturn and Pluto will conjoin in Capricorn, an exact and extremely powerful alignment, with the Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter adding to the mix.

With the focus heavily on Capricorn for the next few years, it’s worth asking the question: “What is a mer-goat?” Through exploration of myth, cultural imagery, and numerous charts by way of the mer-goat, we can uncover hidden potentials within Capricorn, without being limited solely to the kind of hard realism often encountered with this sign.

It’s Your Fault: Projection and Idealization in the Birth Chart
Sunday 4th March 2018 - 15.30-18.00 GMT

It can be all too easy to see what we don’t like in other people. How does that dislike or dissatisfaction show up in the birth chart?

Oppositions are one way, energy is projected outside the self. This is also true of certain house placements, notably the 7th which traditionally signals enemies as well as partners. The 10th symbolizes authority, our role models for good or bad. There are idealistic projections in the 9th house, and fascinations in the 8th. While these may be the easiest to identify, any quality that is disowned in the self can be projected. Understanding that some of this negative feelings have to do with us is an important part of work on the self, and any work with clients.

Juliet Sharman-Burke
Elements, Modalities and the Tarot Court Cards
Sunday 11th March 2018 - 15.30-18.00 GMT

We talk a lot about the elements but not necessarily as much about the modalities.

In this seminar, we will look at the Cardinal Fixed and Mutable signs as they are reflected in the King Queen and Knight of the Tarot Court Cards. While there are many different ways of connecting the Tarot with astrology, when Liz Greene and I designed the Mythic Tarot we felt that the Court Cards and the myths that described them were able to give shape to the astrological modalities in a unique way. In this seminar we will discuss these ideas and the ways we can use myth and imagery to enrich our chart readings.

Clare Martin
Astrology, the Soul and the Water Houses
Sunday 18th March 2018 - 15.30-18.00 GMT

In this webinar we will explore the water houses as realms of the soul. It was Jung’s lifelong task to rescue the soul from the obscurity and neglect into which it had fallen in our culture, and his Red Book demonstrates that the influence of the soul is as relevant and powerful as ever.

Planets in the water houses and their planetary rulers describe the nature of our personal, ancestral and collective inheritance. They describe our psychic vocation, where and how we are affected by the residues of the past, find ourselves blamed and scapegoated, or become catalysts for change. The water houses also describe our sense of being deeply connected to, and supported by, the eternal flow of life.

Liz Greene
Neptune Part One: The Hill of Dreams: Neptune in the natal and composite charts
Saturday 10th March 2018 - 15.30-18.00 GMT

This first of three seminars on Neptune will focus on the meaning of the planet in the natal and composite charts, through exploring its many faces in myth, symbolic systems such as Tarot, alchemy, and Kabbalah, the history of religions, and the psychological domain of the ‘unobtainable longing’. Its many keyword definitions – spirituality, addiction, deception, dissolution, transcendence – will be carefully examined in the context of psychological model, analytic as well as transpersonal, revealing a realm that is paradoxically both amenable to understanding and ultimately impenetrable to rational analysis.

Liz Greene
Neptune Part Two: After the Deluge: Neptune in transit to natal and progressed placements
Saturday 14th April 2018 - 15.30-18.00 BST

This second of the three seminars on Neptune will focus on the movement of Neptune across the placements of the natal and progressed horoscopes. Neptune’s cycle of between 165 and 168 years is too long for any individual to experience its return, but the transits of this planet are disturbing and life-transforming, and not always benign in the context of human perceptions. Using the understanding of myth and the various processes described by symbolic systems such as alchemy, we can gain a clearer understanding of how to work with the transits of the ‘ineffable’ planet.

Liz Greene
Neptune Part Three: The Tidal Flow: The Neptune cycle in the collective
Saturday 12th May 2018 - 15.30-18.00 BST

The final seminar on Neptune will focus on its movements in the collective psyche, through an exploration of its cycle through history and all the spheres in which Neptune’s footprint can be discerned: music, fashion, film, political and religious ideologies, and all those areas of human endeavour that are concerned with achieving freedom from the suffering of human mortality. The ‘unobtainable longing is nowhere in evidence as much as in the products of the human imagination as it is expressed though the great ebb and flow of our collective human longings for perfection and redemption.

New phone number coming soon - please use email in the meantime
