Exploring Intimacy and Interdependence Through Astrology
Lecture: 1 hr. 44 min.
Astrology can be used as a tool for understanding how we inhibit or cultivate intimacy. Venus and Mars describe many of our romantic traits, but our deepest issues come from the outer planets in our birth charts! They articulate how we experience our individuality and what we are authentically able to give and receive in our intimate relationships. Who and what we are when we stand alone is the foundation for what we are capable of achieving with others. Lanyadoo’s talk will explore how to read what we need for our personal development so that we can be strong enough to share our true selves with others. Interdependence in intimate relationships requires that we stay ourselves and not merge with those we love. Order #LAN2002
Saturn: A Newer Look at an Older Devil
Workshop, 3 hrs. 52 min.
The Renaissance philosopher Marsilio Ficino feared the presence of Saturn in his horoscope while Robert Burton, the author of The Anatomy of Melancholy, wore his like a badge of honor. Saturn is Astrology’s greatest Malefic – traditionally seen as gloomy, baleful, and destructive, Saturn has been dressed up in recent years as the shadow aspect of our horoscope. The part of ourselves that we resist, deny, or project on to others because we find it so unattractive; the dark side that we need to integrate into our psyches in order to become whole and healthy human beings.
But what if it really is Saturn’s job to bedevil, to thwart, to inhibit and to prohibit? What if his nature is to be stubbornly adversarial; to resist the impulse to integrate and to incorporate which are the cardinal virtues of Jupiter?
What Saturn lessons are we learning and perhaps not getting? We examine Saturn in art, culture, and history. Saturn is Astrology’s greatest Malefic – traditionally seen as gloomy, baleful, and destructive, Saturn has been dressed up in recent years as the shadow aspect of our horoscope. Order #REN1003
The Moon and Dependency
Workshop, 5hrs. 21 min.
Our dependency patterns in adult life, whether they take the extreme form of addictions to drugs and alcohol, or the more hidden path of emotional dependency, are often reflected by the aspects and sign of the Moon. We can be addicted to gaming or gambling, to daily conversations with Mom, to seduction, attention, or money. The Moon tells us where we get sticky and stuck, and even more points us in the direction of the underlying emotions that set it all into movement. We begin life truly dependent on the care of others for our survival and that pattern of care has a lasting imprint. Breaking the circle of repetition is a powerful act of consciousness, and finding the right timing is essential. How can we use transits and progressions to break into a new emotional life?

Astrology can help us sustain and enhance our relationships so that we flourish within them.

Greg will show how astrology aids us in working through relationships conflicts, anger, impasses, and shutdowns. Astrology generates insights that can enhance, heal, and sustain our relationships, enabling us to interact and live with other people more joyously, with greater tolerance and humor.

Welcome to Planet X
Lecture, 1 hr. 50 min.
The astronomers have spoken and decided what a planet is, but astrologers define ‘planet’ differently. ‘2003 UB313’ a.k.a. ‘Eris’ has the size and orbital qualities to be considered, but what is her record in transits through the signs, in aspects to other planets, and what should we be looking for anyway? Jack Fertig offers a look at all these factors examining our newest planet and presenting some evidence that she may well be a major factor to be included in our work. In CD version, handouts are included on Supplemental Data CD. Order #FER2003

The Venus Phases
Lecture, 1 hr. 43 min.
Rooted in the most ancient skywatching traditions and rendered for our modern times, the 13 Venus Phases signify the developmental necessity of getting larger than our personal needs to offer that which only we can: our unique gifts, tireless passion, and a full commitment to sharing them with the world. In this lecture, Adam Gainsburg will present on the 13 Venus Phases: how they are delineated in both natal and mundane work, and the little-known celestial factors which link modern astrology to the very origins of the astrological tradition. He will explore Venus’ broader and deeper dimensions of relationship and engaging higher energies with greater embodiment. Using the framework of a personal feminine dharma with which we are each imbued, he will explain how the combination of sky factors and sound astrological technique can broaden any astrology.

Connecting the Moon to Lunar Nodes: The Emotional Origins of Karma
Lecture: 2 hrs. 3 min.
Often times in evolutionary astrology, the Lunar Nodes are examined independent of the Moon itself. When we expand the scope of the Moon from to a spiritual perspective (as opposed to only the psychological), we understand it as the great basin of absorbed experiences in the soul journey. Just like a child, we all begin spiritually less mature and conscious. The Nodes portray the patterns and habits which stem from these early experiences. This lecture will address the critical link between our emotional tendencies (Moon) and the lessons and challenges of our karma (Lunar Nodes). Order #MEY1001

The Lunar Nodes: Past Karma, Present Crisis and Future Self-Realization
Lecture, 1 hr., 51 min.
Rahu Ketu as the lunar nodes are known in Vedic Astrology are the shadow planets which work psychologically. They carry the karmic imprint of our lives. These karmas can create many emotional crises within us due to the lack of understanding about the way the nodes work and how to make them a positive energy in your life. They can also bring soul mates into our lives, allow us to connect within our inner soul and fulfill the spiritual mission in life. This workshop will bring a greater awareness of how to use the nodes: understanding their axis, transits, timing of experience, eclipses, conjunctions and nodal relationships. Order #SUT1001
