Astrology Events Conferences and Workshops

Love's Three Houses: 5, 7 & 8th

Online Webinar

With Steven Forrest

We fall into purple passion. In six weeks it’s over. We meet someone we “like” tremendously, but sleeping with him or her would be like bedding a sibling. Why? We find chemistry and electricity in a relationship. Again, why? Is it because we are ancient soulmates, destined to be together? Or does this person simply resonate with our unresolved issues with mom or dad?

Deep lifetime bonding, passing love affairs, emotional epiphanies and emotional disasters—how can we sort them out? Astrology can help! Houses Five, Seven, and Eight carry the DNA of each of these intimate patterns. Knowledge of the exact energies they represent in you can help you see through the hormonal fog. They can assist you in understanding what kinds of relationships are right for you and what kinds are toxic, however tempting they might be. They can define your natural mate. They can help you know which of your needs you can safely compromise and what needs are essential to your soul and thus non-negotiable.

In this live webinar, Steven will explore the meaning of planets and signs connected with houses five, seven and eight. The emphasis will be on teaching the principles of interpretation, illustrated with many examples. There will not be enough time to look at all the planets in each house, but there will be enough to set you on the road of interpretation yourself. Throughout this webinar, the emphasis will be on making conscious, healthy choices rather than on deadening prediction or rigid “delineation.”

Webinar Logistics

Live attendance is not required. All attendees receive download access to the webinar following the presentation.

This webinar will be offered in live streaming format which you can view from any web browser or portable device. The webinar will run approximately 2 hours and will include Q&A with Steven via live chat.

What the Heck is Astrology?

Anacortes, WA

With Eric Meyers

Eric’s basic introduction to astrology is full of energy, insight and humor. Think there’s no way the position of stars untold distances away from the earth can influence your life? Eric’s perspective may surprise you.

Riding the Astro Waves

Anacortes, WA

With Eric Meyers

Waves of galactic energy pulse through the universe, reverberating deep within our daily lives, our relationships, our health and sense of well-being. Learn what energy patterns are currently at work, what to expect in the months ahead, and how to use the wisdom embedded within the waves to discover your life’s purpose and personal growth path.

Zodiac Fractals: Degrees, Decants, Duads and Dispositors

New Westminster, BC

With Michael O'Connor

Probing beneath the surface of the Natal Chart leads us to examine some of the finer details readily available. By examining the exact degree of every planet and angle we discover hidden layers of insight. Doing so highlights many features like the Hidden Signature, Multiple Chart Rulers, Core Motivations and Ultimate Goals of Destiny…. When these deeper levels are then applied to the Principles of Dispositorship, we can gain fresh insights which can also be applied to Transits and Progressions. This approach to thoroughly examining the chart and gleaning all it has to offer is important towards offering solid insights that build rapport and trust between Astrologer and client which helps the client to feel truly seen and recognized and thereby open up more fully to a rich and satisfying experience. When we are able to ‘sound’ and therefore activate one’s core nature, the reading session transcends an information based focus to one that is truly healing.

This event is hosted by the Fraser Valley Astrological Guild.

The Saturn Return of AIDS

Portland, OR

With Christopher Renstrom

Everything born into time has a horoscope – even a pandemic. Although there was evidence of the virus’s existence for years AIDS has a birthday. It’s July 27, 1982 when the virus was named for the first time at a meeting at FDA headquarters in Washington, DC. Join Christopher Renstrom as he introduces the archetypal motifs of the AIDS horoscope, explores the meaning of its Saturn return, and offers some ideas of what we can take away from the holocaust that devastated, emboldened, and re-defined the gay community.

This event is hosted by the Portland School of Astrology.

Astro Brain Mapping

San Diego, CA

With Arlene Hougland

Join Arlene Hougland as she introduces us to the practice of “astro brain mapping.” This event is hosted by the San Diego Astrological Society.

What Planet Are You On?

Portland, OR

With Christopher Renstrom

Everyone knows that your birthday says something special about your personality. But do you know why? It’s because on the day that you were born a certain planet was powerful in the sky and this planet became your Ruling Planet. To be a Child of a Planet means that you inherit its talents, tastes, and attributes. It also means that you inherit its foibles. Some planets are light and breezy while others are dark and intense. These will be reflected in your character which is why it’s so important to learn about who you are. Understanding your Ruling Planet helps you to map yourself. Each of us is a world replete with continents and oceans; poles and hemispheres. Learn about the world you hail from.

This event is sponsored by the Oregon Astrological Association.

The Path to Wellness: How to Use the Natal Chart to Map Out a Healthy Life

Wetherfield, CT

With Mitchell Scott Lewis

Medical astrology is one of the oldest documented uses of the celestial arts. Mitchell will explain how to diagnose potential health problems in the natal chart and how transits or progressions can trigger them, and how preventative measures taken long in advance can help avoid many illnesses. He will discuss the correlation between the physical, psychological and spiritual and how an ailment in one may have its roots and manifestation in any of the three. Using charts of clients, he will demonstrate various ailments and how best to handle any afflictions in the personal horoscope.

This event is hosted by the Astrological Society of Connecticut.

Summer Skies

London, England

With Frank Clifford, Wendy Stacey, John Green and more!

Summer Skies is a brand new event in the astrological calendar – a unique gathering offering a range of insights into astrological subjects and techniques. It also presents a different kind of learning experience that we feel will be particularly helpful for the student and practising astrologer. Masterclass sessions will be dynamic and interactive, and there will be a focus on gaining experience and putting practical tools to use. There will be time for everyone to work together in smaller groups too, led by the tutor and facilitated by the three of us.

Our aim is to provide all attendees with an intensive astrological education, and we hope that everyone leaves feeling more confident in their astrological understanding and able to use these techniques in their work. The event is open to astrologers and students of all levels, but a basic knowledge of the building blocks (signs, planets, houses, aspects) will be assumed.

With Frank Clifford, Wendy Stacey, John Green, Lynn Bell, Sue Tompkins, Roy Gillett and Deborah Houlding.

We hope you’ll join us for these two days for what promises to be a memorable first gathering.

Regressing Your Chart Into Your Parents' Past

Baltimore, MD

With Lynn Koiner

This is a technique that I developed in the 1960s, being inspired by thoughts shared with me by Ernest Grant. In this lecture, I teach an easy technique whereby one can regress a chart back in time and predict events occurring in the lives of the parents and even grandparents. These will be events that have an impact upon our current mind set. They can show events from the past that have altered our current life. This is an easy technique that even a beginning student can learn. When making such predictions, it is often such a surprise to the client since the event occurred before the birth.

This event is hosted by the Baltimore Astrological Society.

Astrology Student Conference

London, England

With Frank Clifford, Wendy Stacey, John Green and more!

Welcome to the 7th Annual Astrology Student Conference! Once again we feel proud and privileged to have a line-up of world-class speakers – a stellium of leading teachers, authors and consultants who will be sharing their insights during this special weekend. The theme of our 7th conference is ‘The Circle of Life: Exploring the Nature of the Signs’, and a particular focus will be on how signs that share a planetary ruler differ in attitude, motivation and style. With the help of Mark Jones and Donna Cunningham, we’ll also be looking at the signs involved in the continuing Uranus–Pluto square and how this aspect is impacting particular generations.

We’re delighted to welcome back Richard Swatton, John Green, Mark Jones, Bernadette Brady and Sue Tompkins. The Company of Astrologers’ co-founder Maggie Hyde will be joining us for the first time. Two of the sessions this year will be ‘live via satellite’, as we get the chance to listen to the celebrated astrologers Donna Cunningham and Erin Sullivan, who reside in the States.

We’re back at Hughes Parry Hall once more for this two-day event. We shall have a bookstall of the latest titles, classic texts and books from the speakers – all thanks to The Astrology Shop of Neal Street, Covent Garden.

Thank you all for your continued support of this event. We look forward to welcoming you to the conference on 17 and 18 May, and hope you’ll also be able to join us for the Summer Skies gathering that takes place prior to our event.

Astrology Apprenticeship Program: Love and Mischief

Durham, NC

With Steven Forrest

The sacred erotic manifests in our lives in a great diversity of ways. Committed monogamous bonds are one form, perhaps the most profound. But then there is the dance that single folks do, and the transformative encounters than unfold in almost everybody's life from time to time. Right at the heart of the matter are those astonishing moments when soul-nakedness presents itself and our faith in the Eternal Mysteries becomes as palpable as the force of gravity. What light can astrology shed on these precious connections? Can it help us sort out lasting truth from the hormonal fog?

Join Steven for an in-depth exploration of everybody's favorite subject. We will study the intimacy message of the individual chart. We will understand the ways that two charts interact. And we will learn about the Composite chart, and how the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. The class will be friendly to all sexual persuasions so long as they are not exploitative or knowingly hurtful.

This program counts towards certification through Steven's astrology apprenticeship program.

Astrological Passages

Lilydale, NY

With Steven Forrest

When you were a kid, maybe you wanted a pony. How happy would having a pony make you today? Joy and meaning are universal goals, but they present an ever-shifting target. The entire basis of happiness in our twenties is very different from what it comes to be by the time we reach our sixties. Some of this is obvious - most of us don't want ponies anymore! But some of these changes are subtle, and being mindful of them can lift our spirits. Astrology illuminates all this for us. It teaches us that the journey from cradle to grave is marked by distinct psychological milestones occurring at specific ages.

What does it mean to approach your thirtieth birthday - or your sixtieth? What about turning twenty-one - or entering your forties?

At each new stage, the basis of sanity and happiness shifts. We see the results every day--there are people become lost and depressed as they age, burdens to themselves and to everyone around them. And there are people who become more precious to us with every passing year. What are their secrets? Astrology helps us understand these changes and how to ride the waves of maturation.

Join Steven for an exploration of that significant family of astrological events, which happen to everyone at the same stages of life. No specific astrological knowledge is necessary - all you need to know is how old you are!

Probing the Inner Sky

Lilydale, NY

With Steven Forrest

Carl Jung called astrology the great repository of the psychological wisdom of ancient man. Robert Bly calls it the "great intellectual triumph of the Mother civilization." Edgar Cayce's readings are peppered with astrological references. And yet when we open many modern astrology books or read the newspaper columns, all we learn is that supposedly "all the Virgos are picky and critical." Where did the power and magic of astrology go? How can we reconcile it with the reality of our being evolving creatures of light and energy?

Steven's wisdom filled "Evolutionary astrology", integrates ancient metaphysics and modern psychology. In the light of that fusion, even something as simple as "being a Gemini" takes on far deeper meaning. The symbols no longer simply describe you - instead they speak clearly and challengingly of your path through life, and of its pitfalls. Freedom and choice dominate the system. Symbolism is read in an open- ended way, with a guiding soul-evolutionary purpose underlying each configuration however vexing it might seem. Nothing is inherently static or stuck. In the light of the idea of reincarnation, every planet and point in the chart represents a pre-existing dilemma, far older than your birth certificate. Each one also suggests a resolution of that dilemma.

As we take our conventional "delineations" into this evolutionary context, we move beyond "description" into "prescription." We marry the power and honesty of present-tense humanistic psychological astrology to the wisdom traditions, which have been mostly lost in modern culture.

Spend a day with Steven Forrest, probing the deeper meaning of that little hologram of the sky that we all carry inside ourselves. Whether you are a beginner or a well-seasoned student of Astrology, Steven's insights, gems of wisdom and humor are delivered with clarity for everyone.

Constructing the Actual Nodal Story

Shoal Bay, AUS

With Steven Forrest

The very heart of practical evolutionary astrology lies in the collision between the psychological and the metaphysical (past-life) interpretation of the birth chart. To make the past life story come alive for the client, we need to present it in a lively, engaging fashion. We know the story is "made up," and we express that fact clearly to the client - but we also know that, if we do it right, the story we tell will parallel an actual unresolved drama from at least one prior lifetime. Success here depends on two skills.

First, we must have a solid grounding in the methodology of nodal analysis, the kind of material we have often covered in class and which is explored thoroughly in Steven's book, Yesterday's Sky. Secondly, we need to come up with a good, compelling tale, one that rivets clients' attention and pulls them right back into that cathartic space of emotional "remembering." In this class our focus will be on honing that second set of skills - the actual weaving of the story. Success here makes the difference between a wooden chart reading that leaves clients slightly glassy-eyed with its abstraction or clunkiness, versus one that leaves them feeling as if their guardian angels have just given them a spiritual booster shot. The art here is one of a controlled flight of creative imagination on the part of the astrologer. We look for evocative metaphor, engaging imagery, and edge-of-the-seat drama, all the while being scrupulously careful that nothing significant in the story we weave is unsupported in the technical analysis.

In these five days, we will briefly review the theoretical basis of evolutionary astrology, but mostly we will be developing the more "literary" dimensions of this critical piece of our art. More than ever, the Sorting Hat will reign - we will pull the names of class members who volunteer out of the hat, and apply ourselves to creating a past-life tale that resonates with those deep, forgotten mysteries from long ago. A detailed ten-page handout, oriented to key words that can be plugged into a structured formula, will be included and will be the "Bible" for the class.
