Horary Astrology: Choosing the Houses
When beginners to horary have problems, the change with which they have the most difficulty is assigning the people in the question to the right houses. In this workshop, we will review how to pick the houses that a question demands.

1 2 Mónica Escalante‑Ochoa
¿Son Saturno y Marte los "Planetas Maléficos" o el Camino Hacia el Éxito?
Saturno y Marte son los planetas que en las astrologías antiguas se conocían como los "Planetas maléficos," sin embargo esta connotación no les hace honor a estos dos planetas tan importantes para sobrevivir, vivir, concretar y alcanzar el éxito. Saturno y Marte son los dos planetas que nos ayudan a adaptarnos y a triunfar en un mundo en donde día a día debemos de luchar por sobrevivir y triunfar, sin ellos nuestra vida no tendría pasión, sentido de misión, valentía, acción, asertividad, paciencia, responsabilidad, concreción, orden y realidad.

Lecture will be given in Spanish. Here are English title and description:

Are Saturn and Mars the "Malefic Planets" or the Road to Success?

Saturn and Mars were known as the "Malefic planets" in old astrology, however this definition does not honor these planets which are very important to survive, live, concrete and reach success. Saturn and Mars are the two planets that help us to adapt and be successful in this world where every day we need to fight to survive and to be successful. Without these planets our life would not have passion, sense of direction, courage, action, assertiveness, patience, responsibility, concretion, order and reality.

1 3 Geoffrey Cornelius
Bridging the Gap: Jung, Hillman and Astrology
Jung’s Red Book points towards a prophetic "spirit of the depths" at the heart of astrology, and his life-work reveals a deep appreciation of its symbolism. His concept of "synchronicity" has become a taken-for-granted argument in our defence. James Hillman loved the subject, was guided by his horoscope, and offered potent insights into its imagery. However, before we may claim the allegiance of these pioneers in depth psychology, we need to address their pointed criticisms of our theories and practice.

1 4 Bill Meridian
The Saros Cycle
This is the great regulator of eclipses. See how each cycle creates a theme that can be reactivated in the future.

2 1 Julene Louis
Accurate Timing With Secondary Progressions
"What will happen?" "When will it happen?" and "How long will it last?" are questions astrologers frequently get asked. This lecture will focus on natal planets becoming angular by progression, progressed angles aspecting natal planets, natal aspects becoming exact by progression, and other important progressed to natal and progressed to progressed aspects that tell what will happen. But planets move at a wide variety of speeds, and orbs become time. There is a huge difference in a 2° orb between the progressed planets that could equate to months, years or decades depending on the planet. I will show you how to convert these aspect orbs into time -– quickly and easily in your head -– so that you can accurately identify when and how long the progressions are active.
3:00 pm 8:00 pm 7:00 am

 

2 2 Adam Gainsburg
Lunar Nodes & Their Dispositors
The lunar nodes and their dispositors are THE foundational statements of an individual's pre-existing orientation to reality, whether framed as karma/dharma, genetic inheritance/expression, or personal evolution. A brief introduction to the nodes, their dispositors and the intrinsic relationship between them will be followed by chart examples to demonstrate the delineational power and insight of these four essential chart bodies.
3:30 pm 8:30 pm 7:30 am

 

2 3 Gregory Clare
The Ascent of Everest
The astrology of one human achievement to climb to the "Top of the World."

Are TRINES Better Than SQUARES?
And what to do when good aspects happen to bad planets. Reassessment of "good" and "bad" in the chart.
6:00 pm 11:00 pm 10:00 am

 

3 2 Richard J. Smoot, ISAR CAP, NCGR IV, PMAFA, APAI
Relationships: Reflections of Ourselves
We are social animals. Our life is rarely in isolation and seems always connected by the people around us. Humans bond with others for companionship, friendship and often love and union. It is often said that we are mirrors and reflections of ourselves placed on another. In this lecture we will explore the astrological concepts and a seldom-used technique that describes the dynamic nature found in relationships when Antiscia and natal planets interact.
6:30 pm 11:30 pm 10:30 am

 

3 3 Rick Levine
Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Uranus But Were Afraid To Ask
Uranus has earned the right to be called the weirdest planet of them all. But what is the real story behind this rebellious planet that shatters spatial boundaries, reverses our understanding of time, and strikes like lightning? We’ll explore Uranus natally, by transit, and in synastry. Join Rick Levine for a guided tour of everything Uranian as we, like Prometheus, steal the fire of awareness from the heavens.
7:00 pm 12:00 am 11:00 am

 

3 4 Joni Patry
The Secrets of Prediction: How to Predict World Events
The cycles of planets, aspects, and retrogrades determine the economy, social crises, and natural disasters. How to predict war and destruction, global disease, earthquakes, assassinations, airline crashes and terrorist attacks. This class is about cycles. To understand where events will occur in the world, the new moon Pisces chart is explained.
7:30 pm 12:30 am 11:30 am

 

4 1 Mari Garcia
Saturn's Children
The Saturn Return, the first of which occurs at approximately 29 years of age, heralds a major transition in an individual's life. Major decisions are made and the direction of a life starts to take shape as the person realises that consequences of actions are now demanded. What happens if -- in this period that Saturn returns to its natal position, bringing with it both responsibility and retribution -- an individual becomes a parent? We know the bond between parent and child is strong but how different is it when that child is the parent's Saturn return, evoking and personifying Saturn in daily life? This lecture will explore this connection and is based on my research of the last 14 years.
9:00 pm 2:00 am 1:00 pm

 

4 2 Eric Meyers
Astrology of the 2020s
The next decade looks incredibly progressive! This lecture will detail the big astrology events after the Uranus/Pluto square subsides. We will review the global implications of the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Aquarius, Pluto entering Aquarius, Neptune entering Aries, Uranus in Taurus and more.
9:30 pm 2:30 am 1:30 pm

 

4 3 Wade Caves
Radicality in Electional Astrology
Electional astrology provides a unique opportunity for astrologer and client to work in step with the cosmic pulse. Though it is the most proactive form of astrology we have, it is underutilized and its promise often left unexploited. This presentation reaches back to examine the historical procedure of electing, in an attempt to highlight a crucial first step that has fallen out of modern practice and deserves re-introduction: adapting the election from a root chart.
10:00 pm 3:00 am 2:00 pm

 

4 4 Christine Thomas
Through Solar Eyes
When faced with interpreting a chart where a time of birth is either unknown or uncertain, the solar or sunrise chart is often the method of choice employed by astrologers. But applying this method -- even as an adjunct to timed birth charts -- can provide amazing insight into just how wondrous the power of the Sun can be, how it permeates through every facet of our lives, through the houses and planets in our charts. Seeing your chart through solar eyes is to see it with new eyes.

Note: Due to health issues, Christine Thomas is presenting this lecture in place of Carol Squires, who was originally scheduled.

1 1 Aleksandar Imsiragic
Energy Astrology and AstroHealing
Each man is a universe within himself. The planets, therefore, represent energy centers within the etheric body. From these energy centers, the whole destiny of the natal chart manifests. AstroHealing is a unique astrological approach to healing of negative astrological influences by balancing planetary energies, and by systematically approaching the healing process of concrete negative planetary positions and aspect.
12:00 pm 5:00 pm 4:00 am

 

1 2 Alex Trenoweth
The Day the Music Died
Genuine grief over a celebrity death can seem implausible, but when three popular musicians died in a terrible plane crash one freezing February morning, a young Don MacLean was so traumatised that he poured his anguish into writing the classic song "American Pie." Alex explores the astrology of "The Day the Music Died."
12:30 pm 5:30 pm 4:30 am

 

1 3 Rod Suskin
Strategizing Synastry
Relationship astrology demands a lot of work and involves a number of different techniques and charts. The end result is often overwhelming for both astrologer and client. Rod offers a practical approach to synastry techniques as well as to sorting through the wealth of information and devising a clear path through the data which keeps a sense of what’s important and gives greater clarity to your clients.

1 4 Maria Kay Simms
Astrology and the Power of Eight
This talk focuses on the significance in events of all types, "good" or "bad" (or however one might term them) of the eight so-called "hard" aspects (conjunction, 4 semi-squares, 2 squares and opposition) as "phases" -- but it does not either use or have any need to use dials, nor does it use the Transneptunian planets. Only the planets Sun though Eris (including also Ceres) are used. (I am aware that there is still some resistance in the astrological community to accept Eris and Ceres as planets, but they have been since the IAU named them as such in 2006, so I have included them in my new book and I've also been encouraging all of our authors to include them.)

As for the main theme "Power of Eight," I am absolutely convinced that the hard aspects are present in ALL significant events of ALL types, simply because they are the strongest aspects. They are present in the best of times, too. How we experience them in any situation is largely a matter of our own choice — and we always have the power to choose.
1:30 pm 6:30 pm 5:30 am

 

2 1 Keiko Ito
The Mind and the Moon
In Vedic astrology, the Moon is considered to be the most important planet as it represents the Mind. In this lecture, Keiko Ito will explore the importance of the Moon in the Vedic chart, the various pointers of the Mind in the natal chart, the Nakshatra or lunar mansions and how they can influence the mind, how we can assess the capacity to cope with events, the timing of potential loss of peace of mind by transit, and the remedial measures to appease the mind.
3:00 pm 8:00 pm 7:00 am

 

2 2 Ed Tamplin
Mundane Astrology: The Basics
This lecture concentrates on the techniques and origins of mundane and political astrology and prediction. The lecture draws on classical techniques originating from ancient Mesopotamia and supplemented by such mundane masters such as Masha'allah, through Kepler and down to the more contemporary Andre Barbault. Ed will explain the relevance and best use of cyclic studies, eclipses and national charts and equally importantly how to prioritize this material in your work.
3:30 pm 8:30 pm 7:30 am

 

2 3 Erin Sullivan
Aspects & Complex Configurations: The Interior Conversation
Erin teaches a unique, powerful class, immediately discerning subtle differences in all aspects. Planetary interactions in our horoscope are how we view the world from within our own self. Our "inner conversation" and external manifestation is based in elements, qualities and modes. Aspects are looked at from various ways: all the complex configurations (grand trines, T-square/grand cross, yods) and all major complexes. You will learn to work with your own dramatic dynamics -- and in that way, how to help yourself and others gain confidence in working with both "hard" and "mediating" aspects in the natal horoscope.
4:00 pm 9:00 pm 8:00 am

 

2 4 Gary P. Caton
The Mercury Elemental Year
Learn to see the underlying patterns behind Mercury’s three retrogrades each year and to harness their transformative power. Mercury spends more time in one element each year than all the other three combined! This means that each of us was born with an unconscious preference for communicating via one element more than others. These areas in our chart are deeply susceptible to the power of symbol-making -- places where our ideas, images, and words matter most. Learn how to harness these opportunities, integrate your opposite element and transform your life via the "square of opposites."
4:30 pm 9:30 pm 8:30 am

 

3 1 Donna Van Toen
Coping with Stress
Stress is unavoidable. What is a minor annoyance to one person can be a major stressor for another. This lecture will discuss various styles of handling stress based on the ascendant by element and quality. Appropriate techniques for coping with stress will also be discussed along with ways in which astrology can help or hinder your coping skills.
6:00 pm 11:00 pm 10:00 am

 

3 2 Glenn Perry
Horrorscopes: Writers from the Dark Side
A slightly tongue-in-cheek investigation of horror, the macabre, and the dark side as revealed in the horoscopes of writers dominated by the archetype of Scorpio-Pluto. Of special interest are novelists and screenwriters who have bequeathed to us our favorite terrors: dark lords, demons, monsters, vampires, werewolves, murderers, and things that go bump in the night. We'll examine how monsters of every variety are metaphors of collective fears related to death and transformation.
6:30 pm 11:30 pm 10:30 am

 

3 3 Robert Hand
Manzils or Lunar Mansions According to the Arabs
Most astrologers with any knowledge of Hindu astrology (Jyotish) are aware that it uses a division of the zodiac into 27 nakshatras, often referred to as Lunar Manions. Fewer astrologers are aware that Arabic and Medieval Latin astrology also have such a system except that it is based on the division of the zodiac into 28 divisions. These are called Manzils. They were extensively used in weather forecasting and also in electional astrology. This lecture will explore their use and will also present evidence that for the most part these were used in a sidereal zodiac and that the ayanamsha used in this system was not the Hindu system of Lahiri but was the Babylonian zodiac postulated by Cyril Fagan and Garth Allen.

3 4 Kira Sutherland, ND, BHSc, Grad Dip (Sports nutrition ‑‑ IOC)
The Ascendant and its Influence on our Health
What does the ascendant represent to our health and how can we use this to our best advantage? Ancient texts discuss what we should look like depending on our rising sign, but what more is there to learn about this doorway into our chart from a medical perspective? How do the ascendant and the first house really affect our health constitution and liability to illness? How, too, can we best support our rising sign so that we are more in control of our health, energy levels and wellbeing? Kira will use both medical astrology and natural medicine principles to take you on a truly holistic journey.

Robin Williams: An Astrological Tour de Force
Every now and then, the Universe calls all the planets together to create a celestial masterpiece. Robin Williams was such a creature, truly an astrological work of art. Join your Sagittarian hostess for an in-depth evaluation of this remarkable man’s chart, startlingly and simply illustrated by clips of his work, interviews with those who knew him best, and a look at the causes and issues closest to his tender Piscean Moon’s heart.

4 3 Damian Rocks
Annus Horribilis: Mutation, Adaptation and Neptune
Neptune transits tend to fall into the background in a predictive astrologer’s toolbox, yet often coincide with some of the most difficult periods in a client's life. Neptune's influence can be hard to define, and so by transit, its effects can be difficult to work with. Yet when impacting a client's life these transits often correspond with extremely upsetting and confusing times. Explore the archetypal themes of Neptune to learn when this planet can deliver an unseen knock-out punch and discover how to avoid sowing seeds for future disappointment.

4 4 Olga Morales
Pars Fortuna: You Can Thank Your Lucky Stars!
The lunar phase at your birth mirrors the soul’s development and potential for happiness, fulfilment and luck. Pars Fortuna is our emotional happiness objective. Astrologers have used Pars Fortuna for winning lotteries, betting on horse races and for successful timing for enterprises. It is the most ancient Arabic Part and the foundation which lead to the discovery and development of midpoints structures by Alfred Witte. On a personal level, Pars Fortuna is not static; it evolves as the natal chart progresses -- ultimately providing progressive gifts of potential fortune and happiness. Your Part of Fortune is a beacon to your success. Where is the light shining for you?

1 1 Adrian Ross Duncan
The Amazing World of Lies
If you like to see a good lie, then it pays to study the antics of Mercury, who as Hermes could speak and create mischief from the moment he was born, and as a baby famously stole Apollo’s herd of cattle and lied about it. We’ve been pretty much doing the same thing ever since. On any given day one in ten verbal interactions with a spouse contains a lie, and if you think that’s bad, if we are on a date, one in every three verbal interactions is a lie. Adrian takes a forgiving look at the function and astrological signature of telling lies.

1 2 Anya Kezerashvili
The Inevitable Cycles of Maturation: Jupiter and Saturn
The Jupiter-Saturn synodic cycle has long been known to time the rise and fall of empires. But what’s the impact of the great chronicators on our, alas much shorter, lives? This talk will look at how the two social planets bring about the cycles of maturation: Saturn through restructuring of one’s framework of life, while Jupiter through changes in one’s worldview. We will overlay the well-known 7x4 cycle of changes of Saturn with 3x4 cycle of Jupiter.
12:30 pm 5:30 pm 4:30 am

 

1 3 Theodore Naicker
Relationship and Marriage Indicators
Can astrology delineate the difference between a relationship, a proposal, and a marriage? We will investigate methods to look ahead for peak periods of relationship and marriage, and triggers for these. We will also discuss those patterns and indicators that usually bring these relationships under strain and the indicators of divorce. This talk is most useful for people who are familiar with and have a special interest in the astrology of relationships. A pragmatic blend of traditional and modern astrological techniques are showcased.
1:00 pm 6:00 pm 5:00 am

 

1 4 Jane Ridder‑Patrick
Psychosomatic Astrology - The Body Talks - Stories that Harm, Stories that Heal
Physical symptoms can be seen as creative expressions of our charts and can act out our inner lives to an exactitude that is sometimes breathtaking. When we pay attention to our symptoms -- and combine this with the insights of astrology -- the deeper meaning and healing potential of our symptoms will become clear, and a great deal of suffering may be avoided in the process. Using case histories, this lecture will explore how.

2 1 Dorothy Oja
Mars and Pluto: Merging Traditional and Modern
Mars: Understanding the traditional ruler of Aries and Scorpio, the first and eighth house. How can we incorporate the recognized modern ruler of Scorpio, Pluto, and its relationship to the eighth house and its relationship to Mars? Mars came first, but how does Pluto fit in? We’ll explore some interpretations.

2 2 Frank Clifford
Labours of Love: The Calling of the Sun
When we express our Sun complex (its position and aspects), we have the opportunity to manifest our individual life path and potential. In the horoscope, the Sun is linked to the concept of vocation -- a personal calling, rather than simply a job or career. To experience our Sun sign is to engage in activities that allow our heart to sing, yet if we don’t attempt to actively live out its meaning, we risk languishing in the negative traits of its opposite sign. In this talk, Frank will explore many facets of the Sun in the horoscope.
3:30 pm 8:30 pm 7:30 am

 

2 3 Rod Chang
Comets and Astrology
Comets are associated with taboos in people's hearts. Whenever people see comets, they immediately believe that something unlucky or disastrous will happen. In this presentation I would like to talk about what ancient astrologers considered when they gave predictions regarding comets, the modern astrologer’s view, and how it works on a personal chart.
4:00 pm 9:00 pm 8:00 am

 

2 4 Lynn Koiner
The Septile and Multi-Dimensional Phenomena
In my research with near-death experiencs and UFO phenomena, I have observed a strong correlation between these events and the septile aspect. Charts of documented NDEs and abductees will be discussed. My primary example will be Dannion Brinkley, a former CIA operative, who has had 3 documented NDEs. Additional data was provided by Lois Rodden. Transiting septile aspects will be discussed and how to utilize them.

This lecture will discuss research conducted on the phenomena of near-death experiences, UFO abductions and sightings, the astrological profile connected with these events and the involvement of the Septile or 51+° aspect. Transiting septile aspects will be discussed (handout of septile clusters will be sent to attendees) and how to utilize them.

Five Things You Should Know About the Moon (But Probably Don’t)
As the fastest-moving planet, the Moon provides a wealth of information about your psyche, true motivations and what really drives you. But so often some of the key qualities of the Moon are overlooked for simple sign/house combinations. Dive into 5 essential factors of the Moon including speed, out of bounds, phase, movement and terms. Each of these 5 essential factors is highlighted, including chart examples showing these factors at work.

3 2 Brian Clark
Vocation: The Astrology of Career, Creativity and Calling
The term "vocation" epitomises the quest to find your authentic voice in the world: the work you are meant to do, the work you love. It is greater than emotional security, financial remuneration or worldly success; more than a job, a career or a pastime. And astrology is an ideal career counsellor as it maps out the paths and patterns of your vocation. Using the astrological symbols and images of vocation, this lecture aims to inspire a more-participatory relationship with your vocation.

A History of Western Astrology in 90 Minutes
Everyone knows that astrology has a long and venerable history, but few astrologers know the full details about where astrology originated and how it came to be what it is today. The goal of this lecture is to take the entire 4,000 year history of astrology and condense it down into a series of episodes and bullet points, in order to give you a bird's-eye view of the major traditions that make up western astrology.

3 4 Roderick Kidston
A Different Angle on Angles
Ask an astrologer about the "angles" of the horoscope and they’ll promptly offer the ascendant and the midheaven, with maybe the descendant and the lower heaven thrown in as optional extras. But nobody tends to interpret planets in aspect to these latter two, it’s all about the rising and culminating degrees.

Yet the geometry of the horoscope offers four other important axes. Some astrologers have some familiarity with the weird, fateful Vertex-Anti-Vertex axis (a Vortex if ever there was one) and the finely poised Equatorial Ascendant-Descendant axis, which can show true balance but easily wobbles into the personality crannies where shadows lie. Two other axes, the Co-Ascendant-Descendant, and the Polar Ascendant-Descendant, are almost never discussed or used. That is a Big, Big Mistake.

For many years now, Roderick Kidston has quietly but firmly stated that in many respects the Polar Ascendant is the most important Angle in the horoscope. It’s a feedback loop with the world and any planets entangled with it express with huge power and panache –- or raise all hell, because there isn’t much to stop them. (Hints: Hitler’s horoscope reveals its dark collective Pluto horrors with the Polar Ascendant factored in. And we can only truly understand Eleanor Roosevelt as "Mother of the World" when we see what happens with her Moon and this angle.) Meanwhile, the Co-Ascendant seems to show an axis where the planetary energies involved have no functioning "off" switch. It’s all happening there, full-on and that’s that.

Tune in to this talk to get a new angle on the angles, especially the mighty Polar Ascendant.

With this discussion, we’ll look at the idea of the angles as Power Points in a whole new way.

4 1 Lilly Roddy
Using Derivative Houses to Identify Twins in a Parent's Chart
In working with families it's not unusual to have charts of a set of twins to analyze. Most twin charts are close to identical, but parental expectations and experiences are different for each child. By using the derivative house or turned chart method, we can see more closely how each parent responds to each individual child: 5th House is the first child, 7th House is the second, and so on. By using the planets and signs associated with those house in the parents' charts and comparing those to the natal charts of the children, we can see how their parental expectation are imposed upon the children.

4 2 Georgia Stathis
Electing Decent Business Charts
When setting up a business chart, what do you do? Do you just step into the process blindly, or do you have a plan that saves you and your client time and money? This lecture features some key components leading to an optimum outcome. Like any other thing in life, you have to have a structure in which to work, fully aware that everything isn't perfect, either. Georgia Stathis walks you through this process.

The process requires some careful forethought. For one, make the client work -- they need to tell you the time frame in which they wish to work. I have a questionnaire that I’ve designed for those clients who want me to analyze their businesses, but that questionnaire can easily be changed to herd in your client’s ideas regarding when they wish to start. Secondly, this is important because it saves both your time and theirs and their money as well (always a good selling point). Thirdly, it sets some of the responsibility on the client so that they have to work at it, rather than just sitting back.

I think this process also helps them clarify what it is that is really important. You may not get the time frame pick right out of the ballpark the first time, but you will be close within the next two calculations. In addition, remember that there is never a "perfect" time. There is always going to be something in the sky that isn’t particularly friendly, particularly since we are having the transit of Uranus squaring Pluto over the course of the next few years. This doesn’t mean that all people start functioning. People will actually start some pretty innovative projects with this aspect.

Saturn Returns: Night and Day

4 4 Colleen Coffey
The Hidden Dimension: The Lunar Phase Personality
The Synodic cycle between the Sun and the Moon is the simplest and most fundamental of all cycles. While there is much focus on the lunation cycle in mundane astrology, there is little attention paid to the phase of the Moon into which an individual is born. While house, sign placement and aspects obviously have great bearing, there are distinct patterns of behavior and attitude discernible from the angular relationship between the Luminaries at the time of birth. This lecture concentrates on the lunation cycle in natal astrology, firstly illustrating how the New Moon before birth influences the nature of the individual, and then tracking the personal traits of each phase as the Sun and Moon move through the eight phases from one conjunction to the next.
