The Luminaries – Sun & Moon

This is course five in year one of our four-year training program. Registration is open to all (you do not have to be enrolled in the program).

Interpreting Children’s Charts in your Astrological Practice
with Karen Hamaker-Zondag

Why do people want a chart for their baby? It is a newborn child, parents cannot yet see if you are right or wrong. What can you tell the parent and what not? How about ethics? And how about the psyche of the astrologer?

We will both look at difficulties you can face in interpreting the chart itself, and analyze in-depth all kinds of problems and pitfalls. These insights plus solutions will help you to make the interpretation of the chart of a young child a real gift for the parents.

Saturn in Aquarius in Aspect
with Tony Howard

In this webinar, we’ll look at the meaning of the transit of Saturn through the sign of Aquarius. Saturn enters Aquarius March 23, 2020 heralding a time of challenge and growth for those with planets in Aquarius. The key to success is facing Saturnian stimulus with resolve and forearmed with knowledge that will help you rise to the challenge instead of buckling under the pressure.

We’ll consider the meaning of Saturn in Aquarius, looking back at previous cycles for clues as well as prominent individuals with natal Saturn in Aquarius. What insights can we gain from those times? And what are the gifts these people have contributed to society?

We’ll then focus on Saturn in aspect to each of the other planets by transit, with attention to how this specific developmental pressure might feel and be responded to in constructive ways.

The Times They are A’Changing

with Darby Costello

Pluto went into Capricorn in 2008 as many of our taken-for-granted collective structures began to collapse.   Neptune went into Pisces in 2011 and who knows what dreams began to fade away as new dreams were seeded in the dark. 

These two planets have been sextile in these signs six times in the last 3000 years. In this webinar we shall look at each of the earlier historical periods to see what we might find in common with our own times and to explore how we might personally and collectively work with these energies for the future of our species and our planet.
