In December 2020, Jupiter will conjunct Saturn at 0° Aquarius. It will be followed by Pluto’s ingress into Aquarius in 2023–24, which will spearhead an unprecedented modern age for society.

16:30–18:30 Children’s Charts – a workshop with Bernadette Brady (an additional £30)
This workshop will offer you methods and techniques for delineating a child’s horoscope. Bernadette will consider: the nature of those who form a child’s world (mother, father, grandparents and possible siblings); how parents can help the child with their fears and vulnerabilities; and which approach to take in terms of discipline. She will also show how to track a child’s development by examining the earliest outer planet transits to a child’s personal planets. Other topics in this special workshop include the child’s attitude to school and the subjects to which they will be drawn. Bring your own children’s charts along and Bernadette will use some of these as examples in the workshop.

19:00 Dinner at Brown’s (additional £40). Dinner will include a short talk by Lee Lehman.

11:45–12:15 Break

12:15–13:30 Challenging Mars Tony Howard

Mars is often equated with anger and aggression, but there’s a great deal more to the planet of drive and initiative. In this talk, Tony will challenge typical portrayals of the red planet, consider when it is ‘out of bounds’ and in aspect to Saturn or Neptune, and suggest ways of working with these complex energies so that we may feel more decisive and empowered.

13:30–14:45 Lunch

14:15–16:15 Venus and Mars: Ancient Archetypes Meet in the Virtual World – a workshop with Darby Costello and Alexander von Schlieffen (an additional £30)

As time goes by, the mythical figures that represent the astrological archetypes change according to the zeitgeist, but every archetype has something pure at its roots. In this workshop, Darby will take you on an historical journey to discover ancient versions of Venus and Mars and suggest ways in which we might refresh our relationship with their energies. Alexander will reveal some of the manifestations and aberrations that present themselves today when we are awakened to these archetypes in the virtual world.

14:45–16:00 Spotlight on Success: Your Midheaven Sign by Sign Frank Clifford

Today, Frank will offer many original insights into each of the twelve signs found on the MC–IC axis. (A recording and PDF will be made available to those attending Darby and Alexander’s workshop.)
