Astrology, the Soul and the Water Houses

Oxford Astrology Group: One-day Workshop

Saturday 27th April 2019
10.00am – 5.00pm
Trinity College, Oxford

It was Jung’s lifelong task to rescue the soul from the obscurity and neglect into which it has fallen in our culture, and his Red Book demonstrates that the influence of the soul is as relevant and powerful as ever. In this workshop we will explore the water houses as realms of the soul.

Planets in the water houses and their planetary rulers describe the nature of our personal, ancestral and collective inheritance. They describe our psychic vocation, where and how we are affected by the residues of the past, find ourselves blamed and scapegoated, or become catalysts for change. The water houses also describe our sense of being deeply connected to, and supported by, the eternal flow of life.

Special Event

Four-Day Astrology Workshop: Finding our Life Stories

20-25 September 2019
Shaftesbury, Dorset, England
Carole Taylor & Clare Martin

picture of Gold Hill, Shaftesbury, DorsetBirth charts are life stories, and it makes all the difference if our experiences are placed in an imaginative context – every angle, house and planet in astrology has an essential myth at its core. Stories lend meaning and significance to our lives – they are food for the soul.

Over four days, Carole and Clare will spend the mornings presenting a range of myths and stories relating to the day’s topic. We begin with myths of childhood, exploring our relationship to parents and siblings, before moving on to myths that speak of adolescence and adult relationships. We continue with myths connected to our worldly quest, though the placement of Jupiter, Saturn and Chiron in the chart, and finally we will explore the relationship of the individual to the collective via Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in the birth chart.

In the afternoon sessions, we will split into two groups to explore the myths at work in your own lives and charts.

The workshop is suitable for astrologers at all stages of study and practice. It is useful to have some basic knowledge of astrological symbols and the concept of the birth chart.

The Tree of Life

Faculty of Astrological Studies: Christmas Webinar

Date: 14th December 2019
Time: 3.00 – 4.30pm GMT

The Tree of Life is one of the most ancient and universal symbols for the still centre of the world, the universal axis of rotation around which everything turns, and of the sacred connection between the heavens, the earth and the underworld. It represents the life force itself and the eternal recurrence of the annual cycles of death and rebirth.

The Sun crosses the terrestrial and celestial poles at the winter and summer solstices, the points of maximum darkness and maximum light.

As we approach the darkest time of the year, we will explore some of the many meanings of the MC/IC axis in the astrological chart. As the axis of incarnation, the gateway to our earthly existence, the Axis Mundi describes the parental and social environment into which we are born. But the MC/IC meridian also symbolises the incarnation of spirit and soul, the celestial chakra system, revealing deeper levels of connection to the universal life force.
