Signs of the Times
Sunday 29th April 2018 - 15.30-18.00 BST

Charles Harvey wrote that “the deeper significance and purpose of our own lives can only really be understood when seen in the context of the major cycles of which our lives are a particular expression.” (Astrological Journal, March/April 1982) 

In this webinar we will explore the significance in our birth charts of the two major planetary conjunctions which occurred in the last century:  Uranus/Pluto and Uranus/Neptune.  We will also discuss the three planetary cycles currently in their final stages and due to renew in 2020:  Jupiter/Pluto, Saturn/Pluto and Jupiter/Saturn. 

These cycles provide a valuable context for all our chart work and lend an astrological perspective to our understanding of the Baby Boomer generation, Generation X and the Millennials.

Seized from Within: Planetary Hijack
Sunday 6th May 2018 - 15.30-18.00 BST

Strength in a chart can turn to discomfort if one planet grows too dominant, seizing the psyche. A sensitive Moon can morph into an emotional Diva, a penetrating Mercury may leave little room for feeling; Mars can dominate as an abusive boss or parent. If one planet is overactive in our chart, another may stay minimally expressed, unable to give its full range of possibilities. How do we deal with these power imbalances in the chart? Planetary strengths and weaknesses don’t always take a predictable form. We will look more closely at traditional notions of strength, and how this may contribute to “renegade” chart patterns. How do we bring aliveness to those parts of the chart that remain underdeveloped or underused?

Astrology, Psyche, and Imagination
Sunday 13th May 2018 - 15.30-18.00 BST

Following the path initiated by Jung, yet paving his own way, depth psychologist James Hillman devoted his life’s work to returning soul to psychology. In his Pulitzer-nominated book “Re-Visioning Psychology,” Hillman lays out his rigorously well-considered vision (or re-vision) of a psychology rooted in the imagination and the kind of imagining identified by Jung as the primary activity of the soul. As Hillman describes, “Fantasy-images are both the raw materials and finished products of psyche, and they are the privileged mode of access to knowledge of soul.”

This webinar explores the archetypal perspective in Hillman’s “Re-Visioning Psychology” as a natural complement to astrology, via the book’s four main sections: “Personifying or Imagining Things,” “Pathologizing or Falling Apart,” “Psychologizing or Seeing Through,” and, finally, “Dehumanizing or Soul-making.” Chart examples will help illustrate how these ideas connect to astrology, can enrich our astrological work, and offer a unique perspective rooted in the depths of the soul.

Uranus in Taurus: Awakening Venus
Sunday 10th June 2018 - 15.30-18.00 BST

When Uranus went into Aries in 2010-11, we certainly experienced an awakening of Mars energy – individually and collectively. Those who could express it became extremely active, in all sorts of positive – and negative – ways. Those who could not express their Mars energy became depressed or helplessly angry against "them." Now, with Uranus newly in Taurus we can expect to see Venus awakening in all the wonderful and uncomfortable ways we can imagine. Here we shall explore how we might experiment personally in navigating this new Venusian energy.

John Green
The Chart in a Nutshell
Sunday 17th June 2018 - 15.30-18.00 BST

One of the questions always asked when teaching astrology is ‘Where do I start in a chart?’ It’s an important question and one which has many answers. So how do we quickly get to the essence of the main themes and narratives of a chart? In this webinar we will explore ways to get into the natal chart quickly, see what the main points of importance are and, most importantly, how we then relate those ideas to the client.

The Astrological Ages and Shifts in Human Consciousness
Sunday 1st July 2018 - 15.30-18.00 BST

Some astrologers believe we are living on the cusp between the Ages of Pisces and Aquarius, a potentially illuminating subject which is not always given the consideration it deserves. Carl Jung recognised the importance of the ages and the tumultuous changes that they herald. When there is the death of something a deep collective anxiety pervades society. Many of us feel this right now as we’re faced with an unknown future where our old familiar attitudes, beliefs, structures and mores are crumbling. As a species we don’t like change and we may well be dragged kicking and screaming into the Age of Aquarius.

This webinar looks at the synchronicity between myth, history, religion, and the evolution of humankind over the past astrological ages, and looks at the compasses which might help us through these shifts. Some planets are happier than others in specific ages; for instance, Mars has struggled to live out its true essence in the sign of Pisces.

Carl Jung was not very optimistic about the prospect for humanity in the coming Age of Aquarius, but this webinar presents a case that has rather more faith in the generations to come.

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.

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
