WAVES BECOME WINGS – NEPTUNE, BETRAYAL AND THE MYTH OF ARIADNE

with Safron Rossi

“I do not know what to do/two states of mind in me,” sings the ancient Greek poet Sappho. These lines could as well be about Neptune, whose themes belong to a watery realm where contradictions undulate. Inspiration, compassion and faith exist right alongside sacrifice, illusions, confusion.

The grace and suffering that Neptune brings, seen in our birth charts and transits, is breathtaking, time and again exhibiting this two-faced behavior. How do we wrap our minds around these conflicting meanings and experiences of Neptune?

Myth helps us deepen our understanding of this planet’s archetypal pattern, and shed light on the pain of Neptunian betrayal, the other face of trust, to a beautiful development of consciousness.

VIRGO IN MYTH AND PSYCHE

with Jason Holley

To make the real is to sacrifice the ideal. Three Greek myths of the Virgin describe different facets of the doubt, sorrow, and grief that always accompany the choice to create, embody, and incarnate ourselves and our dreams. This talk will discuss these stories and the compassionate perspective they offer of our human difficulties with surrender to the cycles of loss and renewal (and retrogradation) that become the warp and weft of any creative life.

PURIFICATION AND POWER: SUN CONJUNCTIONS

with Kelly Surtees

Discover the power, potential and possible problems of a planet conjunct the Sun.

Explore the talents this planet can indicate, and learn the limitations it might show. How and where in your life will you see this planet’s influence? Kelly takes you through a step-by-step guide to fully interpret the meaning and motivation of any planet near the Sun.

A planet conjunct the Sun is temporarily invisible, and undergoes a rite of purification. This process can become a metaphor for your life.

We’ll explore the conditions of combust and cazimi. We’ll define their orbs and demystify what these ideas mean. I’ll show you how to work with combust and cazimi planets in practice, both in your own chart and in the charts of clients, friends and family.
