The Limits of the Self: The Nature of the Inconjunct

In this webinar Mark Jones will explore the nature of the 150-degrees aspect, the inconjunct or quincunx. We will gain insight into the dynamic expression of this aspect using the lens of the archetypal or sign-based inconjunct relationship between Aries and Virgo (and Aries to Scorpio). This sign-based dynamic will form the blueprint for understanding the overall nature of this crucial and sometimes challenging pattern.

Mark will further illustrate the meaning of this key aspect using chart examples from clients as well as historical figures.

Learn what makes an aspect and most importantly, how to use aspects in natal chart interpretation. Aspects are the heart of all astrological chart work. Once you master aspects you’ll find it easier to do predictive astrology, love/relationship and health astrology – and any other kind of astrology.

Asteroid Goddesses 2020

Celebrating the 100th Centennial of 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote, this richly illustrated presentation examines the roles of Ceres, Pallas Juno and Vesta in the history of the Women’s Movement and charts of its spokespersons. The first wave of feminism was initiated with the discovery of these four asteroids at the beginning of the nineteenth century. 

Moving through the second and third waves into the era of MeToo, learn which asteroids stand out as representing the voices and concerns of women. And who is now sounding their clarion call? Which asteroid goddesses are urging you to participate in this collective destiny?

The Floating MC–IC Axis

Modern astrologers tend to favour quadrant house systems, where each of the four angles begins one of the four angular houses. But the two oldest systems of house division (Equal and Whole Sign) calculate charts with an MC–IC axis that ‘floats’ – most commonly across the 8th–2nd, 9th–3rd, 10th–4th or 11th–5th houses. Can we use this information to aid interpretation? And what are the astrological differences between the zenith and the MC, and the nadir and the IC?

Join Kelly and Frank for this new session and bring your charts.

Hellenistic Astrology Retreat: The Houses

with Demetra George

The astrological houses describe the basic topics of our life journey. Hellenistic astrology provides the conceptual framework that underlies and unifies the diverse meanings of each the twelve. This five-day retreat will provide an in-depth exploration of the origins of the houses, their classifications, and meanings as well as document how, when, and why over time some significations dropped out and others were added to the tradition. What criteria can be used to accept or reject new and contemporary meanings for the houses?

Registration limited to facilitate intimate afternoon breakout sessions.
