Time: 7.00pm – 9.30pm

Riding the Celestial Dragon:  The Nodes of the Moon

The nodal axis, known from ancient times as the celestial dragon which devours the Sun or Moon at eclipses, has always been linked to the workings of fate.
In this talk Clare will explore this axis as a liminal threshold between this and other worlds, where opposites come together and where we can sometimes sense our soul’s purpose, the deeper function of our existence. We will consider the tendency of the nodes to personify as significant people in our lives who guide us to fulfil our particular destiny.

Astrology and Images of the Masculine by Clare Martin

This webinar will consider four major aspects of the masculine, equally relevant in the horoscopes of men and women. In their book King Warrior Magician Lover, Jungian analysts Robert Moore and Douglas Gillette argue that mature masculinity is generative, protective and empowering of the self and others. For women, the development of a creative and nurturing inner masculine is essential if she is to experience positive and supportive relationships with the outer masculine. Using themes from myth and literature, we will explore the major masculine archetypes in our charts, their positive and shadow qualities, and their immature and mature expressions.

Videos On Demand: Astrology and aspects of the Feminine

This Webinar considers the four structural forms of the feminine psyche identified by Jungian analyst Toni Wolff.  In her study of opposites, Wolff discusses the archetypes of the Mother and Hetaira, of the Amazon and the Medial woman, each of which are present in our charts, to different degrees.

An exploration of the stories, myths and images relating to each of these forms, their positive and shadow qualities, and their immature and mature expressions, can lead to a deeper appreciation and understanding of our own instinctive orientation and of the unknown archetypal aspects of the feminine which may be more consciously developed.

Videos On Demand: Touching the Voids

March 2016

Touching the voidsEvery birth chart is, to a greater or lesser extent, out of balance.  The nature of each imbalance provides important clues for chart interpretation, since there is an inherent urge towards the creation of harmony, balance and health in each natal chart.  In the often unconscious but always compulsive drive towards integration,  extraordinary achievements are possible. 

This webinar will explore the difficulties, struggles and immense potential of element, mode and polarity voids and singletons.

Videos On Demand: Astrology and Incarnation

January 2016

Celtic CrossIn this webinar we will explore the astrology of incarnation through the angles of the birth chart.  At the moment of our birth, the angles become fixed as our lifelong personal ‘cross of matter’, describing the various challenges of our incarnation, with all its inherent tensions, paradoxes and creative potential. 

The ASC/DES axis describes not only the birth experience itself, but the relationship patterns which will become lifelong themes. 

The MC/IC axis challenges us to accept our incarnation and to find our true vocation in the world.

This video is taken from a live online webinar given for the Mercury Internet School of Psychological Astrology (MISPA) by Clare Martin.  Duration: 2 hours 17 minutes.

Videos On Demand: The Astrological Sun

The astrological Sun symbolises the centre of our being, our life force and core identity, but when astrologers are discussing, analysing and interpreting charts it is often the ‘elephant in the room’.  We will approach this great star with caution since, in its physical manifestation at least, it can blind us if we look at it directly.  The astrological Sun has a complex, multi-levelled hierarchy of meanings, and we will use solar myths to explore the relationship between light and shadow, day and night, height and depth, spirit and soul as we journey towards the conscious realisation of our true personal authority and integrity.
