Turning Points – An Astrological and Psychological Study of Transformation
Join Mark at his beautiful home in South Wales for five days of transformative teaching, mentoring and meeting new friends on this inspirational and career-defining Master class. More than anything else you will come away inspired and empowered with your astrological practice. As we explore the astrology and psychology of significant moments in the lives of others you will surely recognize this as the turning point in your own understanding from which your astrology will reach a whole new level.
Day 1: The Foundation
We start with establishing a strong foundation for our studies of the natal chart from which we can launch safely into a comprehensive understanding of potentially complex movement pictures. The natal chart as an orientation to life can be likened to a vehicle or ship – one that meets the waves of life; transits or events. The natal chart describes the type of journey the ship you sail is on, and through technically simple but psychologically deep techniques we will explore a shorthand method for getting to the heart of the natal chart in order to understand the eventual power of transits, solar arc directions, and progressions.
Day 2: Meeting the Waves of Life
The nature of the external and internal clocks: an exploration of the nature and meaning of transits and progressions. A detailed technical summary of the nature of transits and progressions with particular emphasis on outer planet transits, the transiting nodes, early developmental transits, and solar arc directions as well as periods of transformation when transit activity and progressions come together to describe a potential turning point.
Day 3: A day in the spiritual heart of England
Day trip to Glastonbury, spiritual centre of the South West of England and spiritual home of the Arthurian Legends. Includes a trip up the famous Tor with plenty of time for an optional visit to Glastonbury Abbey or The Chalice Well. Plenty of eating options.
Day 4: Turning Points in Context
To place our discoveries in context we will undertake a detailed astrological exploration of the turning points of various key figures in history. We will explore the
lives of artists, scientists, spiritual teachers and creative visionaries to see what inspired them at their moments of breakthrough, enriching both our astrological understanding and our appreciation of the nature of transformation itself.
Day 5: The Nature of Transformation
In seeking to understand the nature of transformation Mark will embody a fluid combination of depth psychology and a democratic spiritual philosophy, alongside twenty years of astrological mentoring experience that combines to produce a vision of human potential that can be explored both astrologically and psychologically. Our findings are illustrated with real-life examples of important turning points in the lives of real people. As a fitting end to the Master Class, this helps re- ground our new found conceptual understanding in the real-world context of your astrological practice, dedicated to the service of the transformation of others.

Feedback for the Previous Master Class
“With picturesque Wales as the stage, Mark opened his home to a group of eager astrologers from all over the world and all walks of life. This wasn’t a cookbook astrology walk through the archetypes. It was a deeper look at archetypal energies, patterns and symbology within a chart. When I say deep, I don’t mean more complex, in fact, the stripped back approach of interpreting the chart was paradoxically where the depth emerged. Personally, the blend of depth psychology and evolutionary astrology greatly appeal to me and working through the example charts only helped to solidify how great both modalities compliment and support each other. As a teacher, Mark is engaging and personable and communicates with compassion, humour, sincerity, wisdom and ease. I hoped to leave a somewhat better astrologer, but I left with something more, I was put back in touch with what it means to be human. One of the greatest lessons was the power of presence, to sit, listen and be in dialogue with another human being. A truly transformational experience. I gained a renewed sense of confidence; empowered to put my inspiration into action. Thank you to Mark, Patrick, Tony and Keith for an incredible week.” – Jen
“The Leading Edge Masterclass was a truly enriching experience. Mark Jones has the unique ability to combine astrology with a psychotherapeutic perspective and quickly grasp what lies at the heart of a situation. During the Masterclass Mark demonstrated this incredibly powerful methodology, underscoring the importance of understanding one’s own evolutionary journey for the purpose of healing both self and others. This is important work which Mark approaches compassionately and without ego. For anyone looking to more deeply understand themselves, and their role in making a difference in the lives of others, this Masterclass is a must!” – Jayne
