Saturn as a Cohesive Power and Its Transits Through the Houses
Saturn is called a 'major malefic star' because it acts with extreme and severe coldness. But if it were not for the coldness of Saturn, nothing would have solidified in this realm of growth and decay. Saturn is a cohesive power that helps to bring form and substance to our lives. This lecture aims to introduce this ancient, but new to us, aspect of Saturn by using its transits through the houses.

Great Conjunctions and their Entwining Cycles:
As outer planets perform their cyclic dance, some historical periods shift more dramatically than others. Is this such a period and if so, when will we be given a period to assimilate these changes and process new frames of reference? We must take note of clients born under these dramatic configurations, what role they play either as facilitators or recipients. This is a fascinating study of our present paradigm shift and potential upcoming reprieve.

Three Episodes of Our Lives: The 3rd, 7th and the 40th Days of the Moon
The significance of several numbers and their relation to geometry are well-known in many cultures. Helenistic texts mention a different method of forecasting life periods depending on the 3rd, 7th and 40th days of the natal chart. In numerous charts, I witnessed that these derivative charts correspond to specific conditions of our younger, mature and old-age years. In this talk, we are going to go over several life stories introducing this fascinating technique.

Neptune: The Greatest Malefic
Neptune transits or progressions may fall into the background of a predictive astrologer’s toolbox, yet often coincide with some of the most difficult periods in a client's life. Neptune's influence can be hard to define, and so its' effects difficult to work with. Yet consistently Neptunian periods correspond with upsetting or confusing times. Explore how this planet delivers a hidden punch, and discover ways to avoid its malefic impact.

The Transiting Saturn Story
The Saturn return is a well-known and major astrological event, but this is still only one piece of a larger life story. The Saturn cycle, when transiting Saturn makes regularly timed aspects to one’s natal Saturn placement, illustrates a particular theme continually developed over time during an individual’s life. Rather than viewing these as isolated transits, asking about events earlier in a person’s life helps connect both of you to the larger story.

On Solar Returns, A Traditional Timing Technique
A Solar Return is a forecasting method used to determine what preexisting natal possibilities may break for a given solar year. Beginning with an examination of the Natal, followed by a similar inspection of the Return, we note what natal configurations are repeated in the Return. Repetition is key to this technique. Returns provide deep insight into a person’s yearly events; and provide a basis on which to give counsel.

Fractal Progressed Houses: An Improved Way to Progress House Cusps
Secondary progressions are based on a simple idea: each day after birth is lived out as a year of life. Although the concept is simple, there are different theories on how to progress houses. Some of the greatest authorities disagree on which method is best. A new way to progress house cusps known as fractal progressed houses is introduced. Fractal progressed houses, unlike other methods, has a sound theoretical basis.

Puberty Age of Adults – Planetary Cycles of Self-Actualization
Each planet has its own cycle, and some are more important than others as markers of time, especially Jupiter, Saturn, the outer planets and Progressed Moon cycles. We see that these particular cycles are strongly active between the ages of 35 and 45. This period is commonly known as the “Midlife Crisis", a crucial "Rite of Passage”. During that crisis we sometimes regress into adolescence, and live the transition to adulthood again. Let’s see how...

From Horary to Natal and Back Again - Radical Charts and Radical Moments
The issue of radicality is a fascinating phenomenon. When horary charts align with nativities there is evidence of a synchronicity which suggests a connected pattern governing planetary alignments and the mind. This lecture demonstrates how radicality (connections between horary and natal charts) offers important predictive and therapeutic information. Drawing from a number of case studies, learn how the horary chart combined with the nativity can be used as a powerful diagnostic and forecasting tool.

Forecasting with Planetary Stations; Both Retrograde and Direct
How many times have we said," Thank goodness Mercury is direct and all is right with the world." Then a month passes and a mercurial disaster occurs. The only indication to explain the occurrence is that the Mercury station direct degree is getting hit by a transit. Whether it be Mercury, Mars, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune or Pluto. When does the hidden sensitive period begin and when does it end.
