Friday, May 25
 

9:00am

Making the Most of Minor Aspects
Over centuries, minor aspects have been added to the basic Ptolemaic set of conjunction, opposition, square, trine, and sextile. Modern astrologers now use semi-sextiles and quincunxes. What do these and other minor aspects (5ths, 7ths, 9ths, 11ths) mean, both symbolically and practically? Theory (numerology and harmonics) and charts of famous people will help you understand and use them in your charts.

Venus Afflictions
The Buddha says: “You could search the whole world over and never find anyone as deserving of your love as yourself.” Afflictions to Venus cause a deep disturbance to the sense of our own worth and value. Dalai Lama says “Self-hatred is far more extreme than being in a depressed state, it is very, very dangerous.” Venus afflictions need the assumptions and hesitations challenged and the capacity for freedom and happiness brought forth and celebrated!

Adding Star Stories
As astrologers we have grown to understand the planetary cosmos, yet when we raise our eyes to the heavens we encounter a rich tapestry of human mythology held in the stars. This stellular mythology when placed into the horoscope reveals another level of our sense of who we are - an individual linked to the stuff of stars. In this lecture Bernadette will show you how these star stories are woven into your life. NOTE: I have uploaded a draft of my presentation as it contains an appendix of some star meanings. It will make it easier for you to take notes in the lecture.

Both classical and modern views will be presented, as well as chart examples for each planet. Discover the psychological expression and resolution for this common chart condition!

How the “Nightmarish” 6th, 8th and 12th Houses, Don’t Have to Stay that Way...
Classically, the 6th, 8th and 12th houses were often deemed the “bad” houses of any horoscope. However, the challenges of these houses have powerful opportunities for genuine growth and development. Reynolds will unpack rationally why these houses have the reputation they have. Then what we can do to make the best of these difficult places in our chart.

The three trans-saturnine planets show the development of civilization. Saturn and Jupiter show the timing within society. Together these five planets create our external environment. The five personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars) show how we become aligned with, and work through our personal karma. Personal struggles within a lifetime must accommodate the larger concerns and challenges posed by the external world. This talk demonstrates practical guidelines for dealing with these circumstances.

The Moon & Her Nodes
Experiences of the past (south node) are the foundation of your future (north node). The lunar nodes are important points in the chart that describe where and how you meet experiences that help you grow, integrate your life and find personal fulfillment. When not used consciously, the nodes indicate a serious imbalance, unfilled potential, problems in relationships and emotional drain. Examine the natal aspects of the lunar nodes and as well as transits to them.

On the Technique of Derivations
Interpretation is greatly facilitated by employing a technique called house derivations. By its proper use most questions asked by a client can be answered. Typically we say there are twelve houses, but actually there are 144. There are the 12 radix houses; the rest would be derived from these former. For example, your 11th house is the 2nd house of your boss. Chart examples illustrate the use of the technique

Spiritual Dimensions of the Zodiac Signs
All astrologers are familiar with the personality characteristics of zodiac signs: Leo can be proud, Virgo fastidious, etc. There are also mythic and archetypal stories that zodiac signs express: Leo can be the hero, Virgo the dutiful servant, etc. Behind these archetypal stories there is an even deeper level of the zodiac signs that often gets overlooked. We will learn about this more fundamental, spiritual dimension of each of the 12 zodiac signs.
