Workshop – Astrology and the Art of Financial Market Timing: How to Forecast Trends and Market Reversals
Financial markets offer an objective means to test astrological validity. The Moon changes signs every 2-3 days and is valuable for short-term trading. Planetary stations and aspects identify longer-term market reversals. Approximately 4-5 times per year, markets will form important highs or lows, which are the most favorable times to buy and sell. This workshop provides research studies showing the correlation of astrological factors to short-term and longer-term financial market timing events in stock markets, precious metals, and Bitcoin.

Workshop – Forecasting: A Masterclass of 9 Key Steps
Rather than 'make predictions', we do our best work when we articulate the processes that can take place during various transits, returns, progressions or directions. We can then understand what is being asked of us and 'actively participate' in the upcoming 'season'. In this masterclass designed for students of all levels, Frank will look at a selection of forecasting methods, help you choose the best method for the right occasion, and offer tools to simplify and aid interpretation. A basic understanding of the signs, planets and houses is expected, and a mini-book of keys to interpretation will be provided.

Workshop – Saturn: the Foundation and Development of the Self
This workshop will explore the structural significance of Saturn in the Birth-Chart: from its natal position to a detailed exploration of the Saturn cycle and its central importance in the development of the personality. We explore the first Saturn square corresponding to the formation of the personal self, the opposition to the social self and the second Saturn square to the challenge of society and the world, followed by the Saturn return as a reboot of the natal intention. Using multiple examples from his extensive international client base, Mark will show how this knowledge works out in people’s real lives.

Workshop – The Best of Both Worlds: Synthesizing Modern and Traditional Astrology
Chris Brennan; with guests Kelly Surtees and Austin Coppock. The recent revival of older forms of astrology over the past few decades has resulted in the rediscovery of many powerful techniques, but it has also raised a lot of questions about whether there is any way to reconcile the older traditions with the newer ones. In this workshop, we will focus on identifying some of the areas of convergence and divergence between the traditions, especially focusing on the fourfold system of planets, signs, houses, and aspects. We will also offer some points of practical synthesis between modern and ancient astrology.

Evidence-Based Astrology: Research in the 21st Century

Research methods in the 21st century are much more exciting and inspiring than older methods. Some of the best and most important modern research does not require dry statistical analysis. Join us to experience Knowledge Discovery and the practical and useful tools to discover how astrology really works! This is not just theory; we will discuss actual research in the session.


In this program we will learn how:
  • Disciplines like medicine, physical therapy and education have the same issue that we have in astrology of not being able to scientifically validate many ideas and practices.
  • “Evidence-Based Medicine” and “Evidence-Based Practice” have become very important in other professions and how it can benefit astrology.
  • New research methods were introduced in recent decades to build Evidence Based Practices. We will see that these new methods do not emphasize dry mechanical statistics and they challenge us to advance astrology to a new level.
  • To conduct astrological research using free astrology research software.
  • To move astrology into the 21st century by combining psychological insight, human sensitivity, and critical thinking skills in a synergistic way!
This event is open to all registered conference attendees.

Does Saturn Rule Aquarius?
When astrologers assigned Uranus as the modern ruler of Aquarius, many abandoned its traditional ruler, Saturn. Were we too hasty in this decision? Join Tony for a reassessment of the importance of the traditional rulership of Aquarius. Through many chart examples we consider what gets lost in our understanding of Aquarius without Saturn rulership as we undo the blurring of planets, signs and houses. We'll also consider the forthcoming Grand Conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter.

Finding the Wisdom within Difficult Emotions
All of us have entrenched emotional patterns, our "go to" responses when stressed or in crises. At its best, astrology fosters greater insight into these tendencies, so we become less reactive and more emotionally present. In this lecture, we'll explore strategies for identifying encumbered patterns in the chart and apply a simple framework, borrowed from Buddhist psychology, for working with these tricky emotions in the consulting room and beyond.

Dodecatemoria: Enlightenment, Gurus, and Gangsters
An ancient introductory astrology book written in 378 describes a subdivision of zodiac signs called dodecatemoria. The author, Paulus Alexandrinus, suggests that dodecatemoria make good planetary configurations better and make bad planetary configurations worse. This ancient idea is confirmed by modern research of databases! Refinements and developments in the use of dodecatemoria reveal why they increase spiritual motivation but can also become dysfunctional and consequently are also strong in the charts of mafia leaders.

Bringing the Mundane to the Personal: Using the Jupiter-Saturn Cycle in Your Life
How do you take the reins of a mundane event and make it personal? In 2020, the fundamental Jupiter-Saturn series is changing elements. And because of this, it's not just your usual 20 year Jupiter-Saturn planning -- it's lifetime planning. A mutational change is a generation gap with an extra punch, and inhabitants of both sides of the gap need to understand how these processes apply on a personal level.

Moreover, his transits point to personal growth by accepting one's vulnerability and turning humiliation into strength.

Moon Antiscia and Virtual Moon in Psychophysical Astrology
Psychophysical astrology works with the emotional basis of symptoms that emerge at the physical level when unexpressed emotions produce deep trauma. There are different levels of "shadows" in our psyche and each of them reflects a different stage in a traumatic shock. We'll analyze two moons: Moon Antiscia and Virtual Moon to identify emotional resonances of lower degree of consciousness but of great impact on the psychic health. Includes Bach Flowers and associated Schussler Salts.

Zodiacal releasing is a Hellenistic timing technique that can show more active and important periods of time in one's career or relationship life, as well as whether they will be more positive or challenging. Though the major periods show the larger backdrop, one can sometimes witness a fascinating microcosm by watching the subperiods within play out. Sometimes this 'stacking' on multiple levels is even when some of the most important events will take place.

In Ancient Astrology, assessing a planet's activity based on its position relative to the Sun was of no less importance than the Sign and House it occupied. A planet's Solar Phase Cycle unfolds different aspects of its nature and behavior, the waxing and waning of its power, and the timing of its fruition. Connecting such concepts as elongation, speed, visibility/invisibility, station and retrograde makes the understanding of this cycle fundamental to our modern practice.

There are important correlations between the crest and troughs of the Crude oil prices and the aspects between Jupiter and Saturn. Studies show and prove that fact.

One natal chart is a treasure trove of juicy information that we often fail to see. Each house represents different people.

A Generation in Crisis
The Capricorn generation (1988 to 1993) and those that followed are faced with new challenges that previous generations are not familiar with. This generation has had to endure and safeguard against perils which have had limited societal understanding. This lecture will discuss these and how much this generation has to offer in this radically changing society, and what they can teach us as they move forward as our new leaders of the world.

The Essential Midpoint: Sun/Moon
The midpoint of the Sun and Moon is indispensable in analysis because it focuses and blends core needs of the two luminaries. When a natal planet occupies this midpoint, that planet becomes very powerful in the horoscope's theme. In synastry, planetary contact from one chart to another's Sun/Moon midpoint enhances the connection. This midpoint is also sensitive and responsive to transits and solar arcs, often triggering important relationship development.

Hellenistic Yogas? Planetary Combinations in Firmicus Maternus
Vedic astrology involves the study of yogas, planetary combinations and their results. Memorizing and applying these gives practitioners an interpretive and predictive edge. Although yogas are usually considered exclusive to Jyotish, a thorough reading of Firmicus Maternus “Mathesis,” one of the most complete surviving works of Hellenistic astrology, shows an abundance of exactly the same type of combinations. This talk provides an overview of the yogas found in Firmicus, complete with chart examples.

Astro-Coaching 3D – Your Chart in 3 Dimensions
Jelena believes that one’s natal chart is the labyrinth of unconscious patterns and fortunately the treasure of solutions. This is a new way to experience astrology where the astrologer gives the Chiron keys while the clients have to find by themselves their own treasures. She will explain her concept called the “Astro-Coaching 3D®” based on the group dynamic process and the person’s feeling experience of his/her natal chart by using symbolical objects in analogy with the astrological archetypes. The goal is to achieve resolving his/her unconscious patterns.

Resonance is the backbone of Astrology describing how it all works.

Feelings of Deja vu correlate with periods of lunar nodal stimulus. Karma has ripened – and we face an evolutionary opportunity.
