Jupiter in Pisces – Dreaming Your Future

Jupiter softens, expands and wants to explore connection as it dives into Pisces. Join Kelly for a discussion around the myth, meaning and magic of Jupiter in Pisces.

Discover the themes and major topics of this special – yet unusually short – transit of Jupiter through Pisces. In Pisces emotions, intuition and insight are on offer. As Jupiter expands and enhances through the lens of the two fishes, you’ll be called to add magic, art and soulfulness to your life. We’ll explore some of the possibilities – as well as some of the pitfalls – of the transit of Jupiter in Pisces. Jupiter gains dignity in Pisces, which provides necessary contrast to the strong Saturn themes that have dominated life for the past few years.

The Astrology of Leadership – Leveraging your skills to work with organizations

We astrologers, rather than thinking that corporations are the enemy, can leverage our skills and make a real difference at this crucial time in history when we guide those with power and influence. This presentation is a call to action to those with consulting and coaching skills who are also seasoned astrologers, to co-create a new language for the business world that uses archetypal awareness.

Laurence Hillman has been working with leaders for decades and will use case histories of leadership development and organizational consulting to demonstrate practical astrological techniques. He will also demonstrate the Archetypes at Work(TM) model, which is based on astrology, and how it can be used for archetypal coaching and consulting. This Webinar is suited for all levels because participants may originate in the coaching, consulting, therapy or HR fields and not be professional astrologers.

Whatever motivates you, take this challenge to add to your abilities and expand your potential client list while also becoming part of the solution.

No need to attend live. All registrants receive copies of the recordings to download and keep.

Taurus in Myth and Psyche

In this webinar on the Taurus archetype, we complete our mythic tour of the ancient Circle of Animals.  Like geological formations, the earth signs seem to have complex and distinct layers of stories within them, one covering the next across time. This is especially the case with the Bull motif, one of the most recurrent and richly elaborated in the ancient world.  But also like geological formations, only the most recent layer tends to be visible in contemporary astrological theory. In this webinar, we will explore the elaborate stratigraphy of Taurus in Egyptian, Mesopotamian, and Greco-Roman mythology – and also how the stories are reflected in the life stories of individuals with Taurus placements. 

From the journey of Europa to Crete through to the appearance of the Minotaur, and with many twists and turns before and after, we will explore core psychological themes of the archetype including desire and its sublimation; fertility and barrenness; organicity and hybridity; survival and stuckness; preservation and hoarding; touch and isolation.  Slowly and patiently sinking our hands into the loamy soils of myth, we will explore the many gems and stones that lay hidden in the seemingly solid earth.

No need to attend live. All registrants receive copies of the recordings to download and keep.

The Group Horoscope – Key to Collective Astrology

Astrology offers excellent methods for describing the character and development of individuals. Analyzing groups is far more challenging, however. So far, astrology has not provided many appropriate tools for this purpose.

Dr. Christof Niederwieser presents an innovative approach for analyzing whole teams, departments, families, rock bands or any other type of groups in one single chart.

Multi-versions of the composite chart or the Davison Relationship Chart only give a picture of the group as a whole. The Group Horoscope instead allows a synopsis of all the
relationships and interconnections within a group. It visualizes the patterns of group dynamics, making it an invaluable tool for systemic coaching. The lecture gives a general
introduction to this novel approach.

Date: May 15, 2021
Time: 9 am Pacific Time  (convert to your time zone)
Running Time: Approximately 90 min.

Second Saturn Return Bootcamp

Join us for an experiential 5-week experience created to help you navigate your second Saturn Return. Astrological insight is great, and we all benefit from it. But sometimes we need more than just theory. Having someone “down in the trenches” with us can provide a profound benefit as we try to both understand and also make choices based on the planets. That’s the intention of this new offering, designed to help you find resolve and understanding during your first Saturn Return at the end of your 50s.

The experience begins with a video introducing the evolutionary intentions of the second Saturn Return. Next we get to the core of the program – 5 weeks of group coaching designed to help you process exactly what’s coming up for you so that you can receive tailored guidance and suggestions for how to consciously work with this cycle. You’ll get the benefit of hearing from others who are in the same process so that you can learn from each other’s experiences too.

Along the way we’ll share a series of bonus interviews from seasoned astrologers who share wisdom about the Second Saturn Return from the perspective of having moved through it and also guiding clients through it for years including Jessica Murray, Lynn Bell, Darby Costello and Hadley Fitzgerald.

Dates and Times: Saturdays – May 22 – June 12 at 2pm Pacific time; one additional follow up on September 4 at 2pm Pacific time.
You Are: In your late 50s with natal Saturn in Aquarius.
Your Facilitators: Tony Howard and Darby Costello plus special recorded interviews from Lynn Bell, Darby Costello and Jessica Murray.

Generational Signatures in Astrology

Each generation has its own style, its own approach to the problems of the day, and its own evolutionary impulses. Using astrology, we can identify the planetary signatures that correlate with those trends we observe in the collective. These signatures can give us insight into the core issues each generation is grappling with and can help us identify not only the challenges faced, but also the inner resources being accessed on an individual level to contribute to collective growth.

This webinar will serve as an introduction to analyzing generational signatures identified through the outer planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Tony will provide examples of generational sub groups, identified by the unique combination of the outer planets in signs as well as specific aspects that impact specific periods. 

Tony will share initial insights on the Pluto signs Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio and Sagittarius including chart examples. Given the time constraints, this webinar will not include an exhaustive take on every possible generational subgroup and aspect pattern, however you’ll leave with plenty of information to start to work with the concepts yourself, as well as have a tool for thinking about your own contributions to the generational dynamics you were born into.

Time: 9 am Pacific Time  (convert to your time zone)
Running Time: Approximately 90 min.
$25 (through June 3, $30 thereafter)
Level: Beginner to Intermediate (open to beginners who have a basic understanding of planets, signs and houses)
