79-Minute Lecture:
From Thyself and from Science, The Two Components of the Astrologer's Art

Due to the pioneering work of Geoffrey Cornelius, Maggie Hyde and Angela Voss of Great Britain, there is a major rethinking taking place of exactly what astrology is and what are its foundations. It all starts with the first verse of Ptolemy's Centiloquy. " From thyself and from Science!" Is astrology an un-acknowledged science that involves energies of which modern science is simply unaware, or does it involve something completely different, something extremely foreign not only to science but to the everyday thinking not only of the "man in the street" but most astrologers as well.

65-Minute Lecture:
Profections

Profections are among the oldest timing echniques used in astrology. In Hellenistic astrology they were used in combination with the Solar Return to delineate the timing of annual, monthly, and even hourly events. They continued to be used with some moderations in Medieval and Renaissance Europe. In this talk I'll be outlining my understanding of this forecasting technique and examining how it also provides a criteria for selecting which transits will be active and significant to the natal chart.

Join Michelle in examining the four critical junctures in the moon’s path around the earth and how we might use this Babylonian technique to enrich our own work with the moon.

Antiscia and Duodecima

Anti-skew and duo-what? These two techniques were enthusiastically recommended by Firmicus Maternus, Sicilian lawyer and maverick strologer of the 4th century. I have found both methods to be simple to understand, easy as transits to apply and amazing in their results. They can rekindle your awe for astrology, refine your descriptions and make your predictions much more

Back That Thing Up

“Back That Thing Up” is a study of planetary retrograde transits and their correlation with the natal horoscopes of a variety of individuals, demonstrating how events in certain people’s lives correspond to the cycles of certain planets. We will examine the subtleties of these cycles and how an expert astrologer can isolate periods of time within them as “hot spots” for big events and turning points in a lifetime.

Put Your Best Brains Forward: Sun Sign Horoscopes

Sun sign horoscopes are not only the gateway to astrology for most people -- they are the most potent and pervasive way we spread astrological ideas. Unfortunately, a taboo within our profession guides many of the best astrologers away from Sun sign columns. Eric will explain why we need our very best astrologers on this job, and discuss the ethics of writing astrology for a mass audience.

Short Presentation:
The Chart as Bridge Between Egoic and Infinite Selves

In this short talk, Rebecca will discuss how well astrology connects the gap between one's thinking conscious self and what has been called the "real" self or a person's higher transpersonal consciousness. Often in therapeutic approaches, the task is to tone down or reassess the parameters of the egoic self, creating more balance and freeing ourselves from overly neurotic tendencies. Come find out how certain chart components can serve as catalysts for the successful integration of these sometimes disparate selves.

Short Presentation:
Implications of the Astrological Revelation in the Evolution of Consciousness for Human Free Will

In this short presentation I will show how the evolution of human self-reflective consciousness enables human beings to engage the different dynamics of the unconscious and points towards a participatory, co-creative relationship with the Anima Mundi. The astrological perspective seems to disclose an "archetypal mirror" with which we can reflect on the the deeper archetypal dynamics displayed in our natal chart configurations, and participate more effectively in the unfoldment of our lives through the study of our planetary transits. The combination of these factors appears to indicate a potential for increasing levels of human free will to embody the archetypes more consciously.

Ancient Oracles and Asteroid Daimons

In antiquity, pilgrims journeyed to the great oracle temples of various gods in quest of guidance and healing. With the spread of the astral doctrine in the ancient Mediterranean, astrologers gradually took over the role of mediators between heaven and earth. Dozens of asteroid daimons carry the names of these sacred sites and deities. Discover which asteroids in your chart connect you to this timeless tradition of oracle speaker and healer.

71-Minute Lecture:
Timing Shifts in Consciousness: Transiting Moon’s Nodes over Angles and Angular Midpoints

The angles of the horoscope are the bridge between the individual and the collective experience. How and when we experience shifts in consciousness is related to those times when various astrological signatures of progressions and transits make a conjunction with one of those angles – or their midpoints. The nature of the experience, of the shift in consciousness, depends greatly upon which angle, which angular midpoint, and which signatures are involved. Following the path of the Moon’s Node over these points is like reading a book of your life. This lecture will explain the various chapters of your life script.

New Insights into Advanced Locational Astrology


Locational astrology is complex. Competing influences vying for our attention include: A*C*G lines (both “in mundo” and by zodiacal degree), parans or crossing lines, local space lines of planets and birth-location houses, tropical and sidereal geodetics, midpoints on angles, aspects to angles, harmonic charts derived from relocated charts, the relocated chart and its many potential house systems, as well as questions of modern or ancient sign rulership and the question of house rulership from either natal or relocated houses. Learn how some of these influences operate and what to do with them!

Also learn an advanced, new astrolocality technique that has been the product of Moses's research with many thousands of relocated charts.

Uranus Conjunct the North Node in Pisces - 2007

This configuration will occur during the first half of 2007, and will be joined by a square of Jupiter in Sagittarius all along. This unique and powerful constellation will strongly affect our sense of meaning and ideological foundations on personal and collective levels. The transit of Uranus in Pisces has already made itself “heard” through numerous manifestations; the Bird Flu pandemic, increase of media influence over political conflicts in both supportive and distorted ways, or Grassroots movements gaining more momentum. We will discuss how to best make use of this fascinating energy, what are its pitfalls and rewards. Join us on this fascination lecture with Maurice Fernandez.

Short Presentation:
The Moon & Sun: An Evolutionary Perspective

The evolutionary view examines the chart as part of an ongoing process of soul development over lifetimes. The Moon concerns the past: what has been emotionally absorbed in the spiritual journey, protective strategies and urgent needs. The Sun involves being fully engaged in the present as a radiant being. Its light (awareness) and heat (presence) allow us to truly “be here now”. The partnering of Sun with the Moon brings awareness into the unconscious to develop consciousness, the central piece of our soul evolution.

Holographic Transits

Transit technique is evolving from the fourth dimension of time cycles into the fifth dimension of holographic replication of spatial cycles.
The Sun, as the central star of our solar system, is the indispensable integrating force for all planetary energies, and arbitrates one's fate and free will. Phase angle returns of the Sun and the natal planets provide clients with precise dates for when to align free will with Higher Self and make empowered choices.

Want to vastly improve your chart interpretation skills? Kelly teaches a creative synthesis of the archetypes and techniques of astrology to help you develop an integrated, dynamic, life-changing interpretation style. This method of working with the archetypes utilizes the wisdom of astrology, including the Hellenistic qualities, and blends it with the natural spontaneity and simplicity of Taoism as both a mystical search for the principles that govern life and a philosophy of rhythmic change.

Short Presentation
Astrology in the Service of the Spiritual Life


This short talk will outline the spiritual approach to life, a universal approach to living that advances self-awareness and self-understanding towards self-mastery, and the benefits astrology offers to the spiritually motivated. Together we will examine the creative nature of consciousness and power of the natal chart to outline our strengths and weaknesses and provide strategies for promoting strengths and correcting weaknesses. From there we will explore the power of timing methods to identify our most significant periods of growth and development.

Short Presentation:
Why we need Saturn Now


" Like a bird on the branch of a tree that could break at any moment... we must be ready to let go of our attachments at a moment's notice and fly."-Ammachi

We need Saturn now because we are running out of time. The phrase "Time is of the essence" is no longer a cliche, but a burning truth ticking like a clock as we endure tsunamis, hurricanes, earthquakes and a war that never ends. Collectively we are out of alignment with nature. If Saturn represents the rules we choose to live by, the karmic game rules, then we have to look at what we are saying yes to and what we are saying no to. In this short lecture we will explore how the Great Malefic may be our greatest teacher and ally in the eternal struggle against procrastination and the denial of death.

The Astrologer as Time Traveler

Astrology is about conceptualizing the essence of spirit as it moves through time and space. As astrologers, we have a unique set of tools that allows us to move deeper into an understanding of the present, backward to recapture the essence of the past, and forward into the possibilities and probabilities of the future. Join Gloria Star on a journey, using some of her favorite astrological techniques to identify, expand and qualify a trip through time.

Jonathan Pearl
2-Hour Workshop:
Understanding a Chart and its Development through Time

In this workshop we will first work through a chart in a systematic way. Often there are many pieces but no way to tie them all together; this is a
presentation of one coherent method. Then we will apply a timing system similar to Vedic dasa-bukti to find out when things in life actually happen. This technique is a highly effective new twist to the Western firdaria. It has produced incredible results in many hundreds of charts. We'll devote much of the second hour to demonstrate this technique with charts of audience members.

Hank Friedman
2-Hour Workshop:
The Keys to Approaching a Vedic Chart

For both Western astrologers and students of Vedic astrology, this seminar will help you find the major themes in each chart, what is most important to focus on, and how to resolve contradictory chart factors.

Maurice Fernandez 2-Hour Workshop:
The Ascendant, a Succession to the 12th House

A brand new perspective on the nature and meanings of the Ascendant sign, seeing it as new seeds of consciousness yet to be integrated in the structure of the ego. The Ascendant sign represents new concepts that will progressively increase in importance during one’s life, and take over the personality of the individual. Simultaneous to the rise in power of the Ascendant sign, the 12th house sign symbolizes all the concepts in consciousness that need to culminate in order for the new to rise. Examples will be used to demonstrate the dynamics of this paradigm.

Rob Hand 2-Hour Workshop:
Reception

Mutual Reception in modern astrology is a small survival of an ancient doctrine which is much more elaborate, receptions in general. Coming out of the medieval Arabic tradition, receptions provide a key to understanding charts and the degree to which they are integrated or not. The presence of certain kinds of receptions within a chart can indicate an extraordinary chart where without them there seemed to nothing of great importance in the chart. In its is most advanced form the doctrine of receptions can get rather complex, but in its basic form it is easy for anyone experienced in the basic of astrology to understand.


Dennis Harness
2-Hour Workshop:
Symbols of the Nakshatras
(Continued from Saturday)

This workshop class will explore the deeper meanings of the twenty-seven nakshatras of the ancient Vedic zodiac. Nakshatra means, "that which does not decay." reflecting the primordial nature of the lunar mansions that further define the rashi or sign constellations. The practical and symbolic implications of the nakshatras are clearly embedded in many of the key elements of jyotish. The lecture will include a slide presentation to reveal the myths, deities and powerful symbols of the lunar mansions and their relevance to the modern world.
