Washington State Astrological Association
Thurs Jan 12, 2017 | Seattle, WA
The Solar Principle: Planetary Phases and Their Applications. (1.5hr presentation.) Astrologers often ruminate on the nature of lunar phases, but all planets undergo the process of increase and decline in their synodic cycle with the Sun. Through phase’s influence on speed, brilliance and motion, the working astrologer is able to glean physical, practical and psychological descriptions for use in consultation.

Washington State Astrological Association
Sat Jan 14, 2017 from 10am to 4:30pm | Seattle, WA
The Divinatory Art of Horary Astrology: All-day Horary Workshop. Horary astrology is a remarkably decisive technique that allows both astrologer and client to cut to the chase of a seemingly unsolvable dilemma. Through chart delineation, the client’s range of options are assessed and thoroughly explored. In this workshop we will study the guiding principles of horary technique, using both historical and modern examples. We will explore charts related to relationships and pregnancy, career and finance, missing objects and more, with a mind to what is generalizable across fields of questioning. Suitable for all levels, regardless of prior horary experience.

Thwarting Dr. Death: The Astrologer’s Use of Decumbiture. (2hr presentation.) Historically, astrology and natural philosophy formed the cornerstone of medicine.

Sat Feb 11, 2017 — 10am to 1pm | San Diego, CA
Navigating Celestial Waters with Electional Astrology. (Workshop.) Elections form the branch of astrology that focuses on selecting ideal times for the big decisions in our lives — when to open that bookstore, when to sign the lease on that new car, even when to cut your hair to increase or decrease growth — to avoid unnecessary troubles. In this talk we will explore the guiding principles of electional astrology, complete with example charts and practical exercises. The techniques are simple and straightforward once understood and will better equip any practicing astrologer in their future elections. In a group discussion, we will also consider how elections fold into other branches of astrology. This presentation is suitable and warmly encouraged for astrologers at all levels.

Oregon Astrological Association
Fri Mar 17, 2017 from 7:30pm to 9:30pm | Portland, OR
The Aries Ingress: Prophecies of the Mundane Astrologer. (1.5hr presentation.) Mundane astrology – or, the astrology of the world – was anciently held to be astrology’s pinnacle and most noble application. Employing techniques like the assessment of Saturn/Jupiter conjunctions, comets and eclipses, and Aries ingresses, this branch is quite distinct and unique. This talk explores the historical approach to annual Aries ingresses and the techniques astrologers applied to these charts to forecast the future for their respective king and country. In addition to historical charts, we will also take a look at the Aries ingress for 2017, set for Washington, D.C., and assess key take-aways that better inform us on the astrological year ahead.

San Francisco Workshop
Sun May 7, 2017 – 10am to 1:30pm | San Francisco, CA
Casting Rays: Mysticism + Astrological Aspects. (4hr workshop.) The classical handling of aspects in Western astrology is a far cry from the cold, mechanical approach adopted in pop psychological astrology. To understand the nature of aspects, a classical astrologer would first need to understand planetary phase and the process of combustion, the virtue and efficacy of each planet’s celestial (as opposed to physical) light, and the mechanism by which planets exchange experiences with one another. There’s a mysticism underlying astrological aspects that is all too often overlooked in modern times. Where did the mysticism go, and how do we bring it back? This workshop seeks to re-introduce the “why” and “how” of aspectual connections between planets to sharpen even the most experienced astrologer’s symbolic toolkit.

Sat July 1, 2017 – Sun July 2, 2017 | Perugia, Italy
The Oracle of Soul: Astrology of the Ninth House. (1hr presentation.) Dreams, astrology, legal advisors and universities, long voyages and distant places. What connects the significations of the ninth house may not be immediately obvious, but has a lot to teach us about how we seek wisdom beyond our reach and what it is that we’re doing when we connect with the Divine. This presentation explores the origins of third and ninth house symbolism, why the luminaries are said to rejoice in these houses, and how this informs our understanding of divinational techniques like astrology.

Decumbiture charts are judged very similarly to horary figures, with a few unique techniques.

2018.


22nd FAA Astrology Conference
Fri January 19 – Sun January 21, 2018 | Melbourne, Australia

Like Clockwork: Timing in Horary Astrology. (1.25hr presentation.) Horary textbooks cover a lot of theoretical ground, but few really draw out the mechanics involved in assessing cycles to create a solid timeline of events. What techniques are consistently recorded? Are they all equally reliable? Is there a more straightforward approach that can be taken when timing horary figures? This presentation analyzes modern and historical horary charts to demonstrate an organic approach to timing that underlines the ongoing cycles speaking to us in horary consultation. This presentation will be suitable for all, irrespective of experience using horary astrology.

Electing With Purpose: Radicality in Electional Astrology. (1.25hr presentation.) Electing is an art that is practiced widely in the modern astrological community, but rarely with the degree of precision achievable by practicing astrologers. With radical elections, the astrologer enters a person-centred electional process that properly exploits the power and purpose of their client’s natal chart. Using modern and historical chart examples learn how to give your election a strong foundation in this presentation. The techniques are simple and straightforward and, once understood, will better equip every astrologer in their practice. This presentation is suitable and warmly encouraged for astrologers at all levels, especially those who currently use electional astrology and are looking for ways to sharpen their technique.

Love & Conception: Exploring Relationship Issues through Horary. (Workshop.) The bread and butter of a horary astrologer’s practice, relationship questions are not technically difficult but can offer unique challenges in consultation. As astrologers, how do we take what we see in a chart and turn that into something meaningful for a client? What are the common pitfalls in relationship chart consultation, and how can we allow the astrology to work through us in a clearer, more direct way? In this presentation we will assess horaries relating to relationships and pregnancy to see reliable first principles at work, with a focus on the pragmatic nature of interpersonal counseling.

July 30, 2015 at 7:30pm | San Francisco, CA
Connections in Horary Astrology. (1hr 15min presentation.) As astrologers, we seek to form connections between the microcosm and the macrocosm through interpretation of planetary symbolism. Horary astrology often accomplishes this as a standalone technique, and yet each horary necessarily carries the signature of larger astrological cycles being unfolded. This talk explores horary’s relationship to natal, electional and resolution charts, and how these connections impact upon our understanding of the power and purpose of astrology.

In this talk we will explore the guiding principles of electional astrology, complete with example charts and practical exercises. The techniques are simple and straightforward once understood and will better equip any practicing astrologer in their future elections. In a group discussion we will also consider how elections fold into other branches of astrology. This presentation is suitable and warmly encouraged for astrologers at all levels.
