Vedic Astrology and Career Selection

Sect: The Difference Between Day

and Night Charts

Angular planets, which affect the 1st house or the 10th,

invariably provide clues to the best career options for
any individual. In turn, certain combinations of two or
more planets provide more specific indications of
career. This technique, applicable to both western and
Vedic astrology, is easy to understand and apply, and is
invaluable for advising clients at a career crossroads.

An in-depth overview of the Hellenistic concept of sect,

and how it changes the interpretation of basic chart
placements depending on whether a person was born
during the day or at night.

Uranus and the Shining Sun

When will it Happen?

A historical look at the transit of Uranus through the

twelve tropical signs over the last two centuries,
focusing on biographical studies of various notable
people during times of Uranus conjunction and
opposition transits to their natal Suns

Many questions put to the horary astrologer revolve

around time: the moment of fulfilment. The client wants
to know the answers to such questions as when their
soul mate will appear in their life, when the cheque will
arrive, and when is a good time to go on holiday. It is
one thing to determine that an event will take place. It is
quite another to determine when it will take place. The
technique for determining the answer to when an event
will take place is relatively simple, but most students
manage to complicate the issue unnecessarily. In this
lecture Peter Burns will explain some of the foundation
techniques of horary astrology and how to use a timing
method that actually works.

The Visual Dimensions of the

Venus - Mars Cycle

Shadow Planets

This lecture explores the nature of the different visual

images presented to us by the 3 Venus-Mars
conjunctions of 2015. We will continue the "all
conjunctions are not created equal" theme from earlier
in the track, this time by differentiating the 3 VenusMars conjunctions of 2013 according to
morning/evening appearance and speed (who is
passing whom?). We will discuss how these
differences can and should modify and extend our
delineations, what this might mean for our forecasting
and client work, and what the ramifications are for the
field of astrology itself.

Conversations generally turn serious when it comes to

topics involving Scorpio, Pluto and the 8th house. We
seem to conjure up a mysterious curiosity over the 8th
archetype unlike anywhere else in the chart. Ever
wonder what lies buried in the darkness of your own
8th house? What happens if you accidentally stumble
upon it and release it? Is that a good thing or
something to be avoided? This lecture will focus on
the 8th archetype and its hidden shadow. We'll
explore the dark side of public figures whose
unhealed shadows have caught them off guard and
literally knocked them off their pedestals. We'll also
take a look at techniques for facing our shadow sides
in order to heal, benefit and grow through 8th-house

Points of View?
Whenever we tell a story we take a position. The tone,
style and perspective used to frame a narrative is
unique to the teller. The interpretation of a chart, or of
anything for that matter, requires judgement. In this
lecture we examine how we find our voice and the
implications of using it.

The Blue Planet: A Geocentric View
of Our Relationship with the Sun
Rightly or wrongly, our ancient ancestors viewed our
planet as the centre of the solar system. Nicolaus
Copernicus, with the encouragement of astrologer
Georg Joachim Rheticus, changed the way in which
the collective understands the heavens. It is our own
unique location on this planet that gives us a personal
perspective of how the sky works. If I live in the
Northern Hemisphere what do I see differently from
those who live in the Southern Hemisphere? In this
workshop we will look at how the celestial equator and
the earth's obliquity change our perspectives.

Ensouling Place: Being Here Now

Aries: Pioneer, Warrior, or Lone


Studies have shown that we humans generally identify

place with safety, consigning it to either end of a
spectrum that extends from security to isolation. Who
can explain why we are drawn to certain places from a
young age, or have a penchant for moors or deserts
while others are repelled by them. Why are some
drawn to caves, others open spaces? Some prefer
cities, others villages. From a soulful perspective, the
natal and relocated charts can help to confirm the
mystery of our feelings and reveal patterns to places
that are significant in our lives. In this lecture we will
consider place from the perspective of the soul using
the natal and relocated chart to help us consciously
cooperate with ensouling both our personal and our
collective space through attending to and participating
with where we are.

Spotlight on Success: Making the

In this talk, Frank will explore the many facets of the
Midheaven (MC). This much-neglected angle has
much to say about our reputation and public image,
and, as part of an axis, our parental messages and
family inheritance. Astrologically, our MC complex
reveals our personal definition of success and our
deep-seated drives to make a societal/professional
contribution. We can gain recognition when we "follow
our bliss" and adopt the roles described by it. In this
talk, Frank will offer new insights from his years of
research into the MCIC axis.

understand what the influence of the zodiac sign Aries
really is. This evidence for the meaning of Aries is
based on a research design that modern research
methodologists consider to be better than the usual
ways that we use to verify astrological ideas. The
research design used is an "extreme case study," and
it is a research design that does not require as much
effort as many other research designs, is fun to
conduct, and modern researchers would say that the
findings are more important than the findings we get
from looking at charts of freinds, family, clients, and
famous people. We will also briefly look at the
research on other zodiac signs.

Colleen Coffey
Fortuna and Daimon -- Part of
Fortune, Part of Spirit
Traditional astrology was festooned with a myriad of
Arabian Parts. Unfortunately only the Part of Fortune
(Fortuna) has made the transition into modern
astrology. It is said that this is so because Ptolemy
made much of the Part of Fortune in his Tetrabiblos
because "fortune" was tangible and could "prove"
astrology, but he made no mention of its "soul mate"
the Part of Spirit because the "spirit" is indefinable and
not so easily "proved." However, these two parts are a
pair, like bread and butter, and the Sun and Moon
they are meant to go together -- in fact as a pair they
reflect the Sun and Moon in the natal chart and
together with the Ascendant they underpin the
Lunation personality type. This lecture puts the Part of
Spirit back into the natal chart, discusses the
difference between day and night charts, and from a
traditional baseline, considers the relevance and how
to utilize the combined strength of these two ancient
parts in modern physiological astrology.

Geoffrey Cornelius
Divination Theory and Practical
Is practical astrology divination? This question has
become something of a hot potato, with psychological
and archetypal astrologers joining together with diedin-wool traditionalists to declare the straightforwardly
objective nature of our Art's symbolism and its results.
We will cover in detail the case for and against
astrology-as-divination, and show the relationship of
this question to that of the role of imagination and the
"symbolic attitude." We also explore some of the
leading-edge approaches of contemporary scholarastrologers sympathetic to the divinatory
interpretation, including Dorian Gieseler Greenbaum,
Patrick Curry and James Brockbank.

The Capricorn Stellium
At BDTB-2, I gave a general introduction to stelliums.
However, that was a long time ago, and now the word
is starting to get out that there are now more people
with stelliums with an outer planet conjunction as the
core than ever before. And more and more of them
are coming to astrologers for answers on how to
manage those combinations. Over the past 50 years,
there have been a series of them, starting in Virgo and
complicating one sign after another. My primary
concern, and the one I'd like to address in my lecture,
is the Capricorn Stellium generation in their mid-20s,
born with a triple conjunction of Uranus, Saturn, and
Neptune. Millions of them were born in 1988-89, and
those born in the winter months could have as many
as 7 planets in Capricorn. Since the last time these
three planets were conjunct was in 1307, astrologers
need information on how this combination works and
ways to help them use the planets' energies in a more
constructive way.

Synchronicity. Physical effects of the moon and sun.
Through the ages, astrologers have held many ideas

Two effective and easy-to-use forecast methods from

the treasures of the past. One is known as
"Profection," which is based on signs/house
sequence, and works hand in hand with the solar
return chart. The other is the "D-Quadrant System,"
based on the diurnal motion in the course of the first
day after birth, and covers much longer periods of life.
It is a truly an evolutionary approach, since it
describes the personal development throughout life
and shows when the natal potentials blossom and
come to fruition. When both systems are integrated
we are shown the highlights of life. They are easy to
master and are "a must" whether you read for yourself
or others.

Principles of Electional Astrology

Mastery of Prediction

Success or failure of a new activity, association or

event depends mainly on the time when this is started.
Luckily, electional astrology exists to help us to find
the most favorable (or sometimes the least
unfavorable) time to attain success in important
events such as getting married, opening a business,
medical surgery, starting a trip, etc. Electional
astrology has different rules than natal astrology, and
here we will learn them in theory and in practice.

It is said that the meaning of communication is the

response you get. In prediction nothing is more
important than the client's response, for he or she
knows more about the potential future than the
astrologer. Prediction works when astrologer and
client cooperate to co-create a believable and
attractive future. Transits and progressions help
create the overall picture, but if you want to be able to
explain in exquisite detail what is going on, then you
need the chart for the moment the consultation starts.
This talk explains how.

Fiery Travels: The Story of the Via


Avoiding Relationship Pitfalls: Love

Asteroids in Synastry

This is the story of a small stretch of sky. The Via

Combusta (fiery road) is a small stretch of sky, usually
defined as mid-Libra to mid-Scorpio, that is seen by
astrologers as A Bad Thing. When the Moon is there,
it bodes bad results for horary astrologers, shows
serious problems for electional astrologers and can be
generally worrying for other astrologers. And that is
the sum total of most astrologers' knowledge about it.
Throughout the centuries, astrological writers have
been extremely reticent about the Via Combusta,
seemingly assuming that it's so mind-bogglingly
obvious what it means that they needn't waste words
writing about it. The truth is that the Via Combusta is
so ancient, we can no longer be sure from where it
originated. But we can explore where the idea of the
Via Combusta might have come from and why it
endured as a concept for so many centuries.
Additionally, this book examines how it has been
interpreted by astrologers in the past. The Via
Combusta is a small stretch of sky. And this is its

The "Love Asteroids" include Cupido, Sappho, Eros

and Amor whose chart placements indicate who you
are attracted to as well as what your expectations are
of a lover. If you're always attracted to people with
whom you are not compatible, then it's likely that this
problem originates here. Since expectations are so
important in relationships, using these asteroids in
either natal readings or synastry helps point out where
any pitfalls may lie, which allows you or your client to
deal with them more effectively or perhaps avoid them

All Conjunctions Are Not Created


Everything You Ever Wanted to

Know About Chiron

All western astrology shares the round horoscopic

wheel as its main tool. Yet how much of the celestial
reality do our chart wheels portray? The truth is, not
very much at all. This lecture will first introduce the
key "missing ingredients" of the living sky -- Earth
proximity, visual appearances, planetary brightness,
declination, latitude and speed, using several sky
softwares to visually demonstrate them. We'll then
learn how to include these missing factors into our
chart work with ease, once we understand just
enough of the astronomy. We'll culminate with a
special look at eclipses and occultations as wonderful
examples of just why all conjunctions are plainly not
created equal.

There's a (relatively) new kid on the astrological block:

Chiron. But what's his story? Is he a planetoid, an
asteroid, or a comet? How does his myth point to a
spot in your chart where you'll deal with addicts and
addictions, tragic flaws, and the acceptance of
imperfection? Through the re-telling of his story,
interesting facts about the heavenly body itself, and
striking celebrity examples, here's everything you ever
wanted to know about Chiron -- including his amazing
connection to metaphysical healing trends and the
handicapped symbol of access. Your Sagittarian
hostess promises to educate and entertain you!

The Phases of Mars

Join me as we discover the little-known celestial
factors which link modern astrology to the very origins
of our astrological tradition. I'll then apply them to
reveal the "living sky" meanings of the thirteen phases
of Mars. Each Phase answers the question, "What is
my natal Mars in service to, beyond myself?" Our
natal phase signifies our inner masculine (residing in
both women and men) dharma of tangibly improving
our societal sphere in personally fulfilling ways. I will
demonstrate how knowledge of Mars' sky factors
combine with sound astrological delineation to greatly
increase scope and accuracy in working with Mars'
higher manifestations.

In the Wake of the Dragon: the
Moon's Nodes and the Cycle of Fate
The Moon's Nodes have always held a fascination, as
they have traditionally been associated with the
concepts of karma and destiny. They were also
considered to have both malefic and benefic qualities.
The importance of the Lunar Nodes has survived in
the practice of Hindu astrology but Western astrology
has relegated the Nodes into a miscellaneous basket.
This lecture will explore the Nodal Axis and its cycle
from a traditional perspective and their influence in
natal astrology.

A Fascinating Glimpse Into the

Hellenistic Astrology through the
Miraculously Preserved
Oxyrynchus Papyri

Making Friends with Astrology

We could say that the Oxyrhynchus papyri is a sort of

time capsule miraculously preserving not only the
literature but the daily life that was taking place some
2000 years ago, in the so called hellenistic era!
Actually these papyri were discovered at an
archeological excavation of an ancient rubbish dump
near the Hellenistic town of Oxyrhynchus in Egypt.
Among some unknown-until-now literary works and
many prosaic documents (like various transactions'
receipts and wedding invitations) there have been
found several informal and formal types of
horoscopes. These horoscopes are revealing to us
the methods, the skills and the shortcomings of the
astrologers of the time!

Knowing the astrology of people, as well as of

present, past and future times, enables us to see the
world through others' eyes; to experience their
needs, fears and pleasures, as if they were our own.
We see them as a complete Universe and feel
responsible for all. Roy will illustrate this with
individual charts, synastry and historical astro-events,
and then look ahead to see how such insight could
help everyone create a better future.

Birth Chart with Astrology's
Elements and the Archetypes
Astrology is traditionally seen as universally consisting
of four natural elements: fire, earth, air and water. The
elements are considered to be the foundation of all of
life and are represented within the birth chart. When
applied to human nature, the elements represent
certain behaviors within an individual to help define
one's basic temperament. This lecture will explore the
basic essence of fire, earth, air and water and further
how it interacts with the energy of cardinal, fixed and

Transits in Early Youth and Youth
Until Puberty: How Your Sensitivity
and Circumstances in Early Youth
Can Influence Your Adult Life
Uranus, Neptune and Pluto can transit important
planets and points when we are very young. That
does not mean that something must happen, although
things could happen. Transits first and for all
emphasize the issues you are sensitive of during that
transit, so if even a minor thing happens in line with
the meaning of the transit, you will sense the impact
much more than without that transit. And the
psychological impact of these events can create an
unconscious though powerful basis for your actions
later in life. If politicians are not enough aware of how
early youth could have programmed them, their
political decisions will be in line with those
unconscious programs. The same is true, though in a
different way, for transits until puberty. We will look indepth in an example to illustrate the dynamics.

Roderick Kidston

Brad Kochunas

Juno -- The Lady of Personal Power

Born Under a Bad Sign?

This is a topic dear to Roderick Kidston's heart. He

has a different take on Juno, one which gives much
greater honour and emphasis to the asteroid which is
the astrological conduit for the energy of Juno, Queen
of Heaven. When astrologers first started investigating
the asteroids, Juno was offered almost entirely as a
symbol of marriage and partnership and the issues
that arise in close relationships. That's a start, but the
great lady who presides on Mount Olympus as the
queen of all the gods and goddesses is about
something much more fundamental than who does
what in the relating game. This lecture goes deeper,
into the heart of what Juno is as an astrological
symbol, and as a divine archetype. It examines the
deeper implications of what "goddess energy" means,
what shakti is, what it means to look at the feminine
principle as involved with power: real power, deep
power, the power that is fundamental to all spiritual
endeavour and which underpins all power in the
manifest universe, come to that. Juno shows us where
the true power is in the horoscope. If you want to
know where your personal power is, what some of
your deepest talents are -- though possibly unclaimed
and unexpressed, or only partially manifested -- then
you need to engage with Juno and make friends with
this very mighty, very splendid goddess.

Many astrologers believe that there are no bad signs,

malefic planets, or dreadful aspects. If this is so, and
the birth chart is a true reflection of the person, then
how do we account for the existence of aberrant and
pathological behavior? Aren't there bad, malicious,
and dreadful people in the world? Are there bad
charts or is every chart, as Richard Idemon once
wrote, the perfect chart? Can one discern the chart of
a saint from a sinner? This presentation will focus
upon the extreme expressions of sign/planet/house
dynamics and is designed to foster insight toward
understanding our own capacity for immoral,
problematic, and harmful behavior, recognizing that a
person without shadow is also a person without

Lynn Koiner
The 12th House
The 12th House represents issues, qualities and
traits that have become repressed in the personality.
Planets in this house represent traits and qualities that
were deemed intolerable to be expressed by a parent
-- they were intimidating to a parent, and the individual
learned to repress these qualities and feelings. This is
a super-powerful house, and planets that fall into this
house are dynamic, but it is essential that you learn to
release their energies by finding an outlet -- in the
career, in the avocation or some other external
activity. Lynn will be presenting a lecture on her
observations of 12th house planets in the natal chart.
She will also introduce her theory of regressing the
chart into your parents' past, which she uses in giving
a greater understanding of the source of these issues.

These planets help us to understand the shadow side

of the personality that goes deeper than the reality of
life. Understanding these energies can make us see

We often think of the astrologer as a non-participating

observer, someone who reports on the clients issues,
timing, and choices. However, quantum physics tells
us that the observer is actually part of the equation;
the act of observation changes that which is observed.
The implications of this are great. As astrologers, we
cannot deny or otherwise avoid our roles as agents of
change. So what do we do about this? How do we
accept the responsibility of altering the lives of our
clients? And where do we go from here?

The Astrology of the Evolution of

We all know something is happening. Our personal
lives, our relationships to our governments, and the
entire social structure we've been raised to accept -all are in upheaval and transition. As new planets are
being discovered with periods of 500 years or more,
and the shift of Regulus into Leo and Virgo, as well as
the positions of Neptune and Pluto at the end of the
Zodiac, all demand that the practice of Astrology
change to meet the needs of all human beings on
Earth. People still need to pay their bills, educate their
kids, and find a shred of romance in this world. And of
course our job is to help them do that. But the
enormity of social transformation cannot be ignored..

Mercury, Venus & Mars: Up Close
and Personal
"Mercury in the morning, Venus in the evening, Mars
at suppertime..." So why is Mercury so darned elusive
at being spotted in our twilight skies? Just when you
thought you should be able to get a clear sighting of
him you don't, but then another time almost
unexpectedly there he is. But is it really him? Because
he never quite looks the same as he did last time
around. Why is that? The trickiest of planets to be
pinned down: now you see him, now you don't. Venus
though has no such stage nerves as she dazzles and
bewitches us for much of the year as that most
brilliant of morning and evening stars, slipping
gracefully from view only briefly before reappearing on
the opposite horizon. No wonder that for some long
time our ancestors thought this was two different
stars. Mars meanwhile, in all his orangey-reddish
glory, comes sabre-rattling in our night skies roughly
every two years, growing bigger and bolder and
holding station over a period of some months and
then slowly fades away from whence he came. We
explore the cycles of these most personal and

The Big Three: Sun, Moon, and
Almost anyone you meet will have the same story
about how they were introduced to astrology, and that
was by learning about their "sign" which is, in fact,
their Sun sign. Most people, astrologers included, will
agree that the Sun does hold an important place in a
person's horoscope, but there are two other factors
that hold about equal weight, but are usually unknown
by many, and that is the Moon sign and ascendant,
a.k.a. the rising sign. This introductory lecture will help
explain why these are known as "The Big Three" and
how you can start to understand why a Sun sign alone
cannot explain much of your core personality. With the

childhood experiences, which serve as prototypes for
later experiences of analogous quality and meaning.

Location as an Agency of Growth

and Healing

National Charts: Which Chart Do we

Use and Why

Every living and non-living entity lives within a matrix

of potential manifestation, woven together within a
pathway of sacred geometry, held together by
intention -- a holographic projection onto which matter
is outlined. Your life is embedded within this larger
vibratory field of intelligence that is ever-changing and
perpetually becoming conscious. As astrologers, we
are fascinated and absorbed by time as the agency of
our on-going process of change. However, your life
emerges not only within the abstraction of time but
also within the context of space. Consequently your
life force is not simply contained within your physical
body but extends across time and space as you draw
into your Field people, ideas and circumstances that
trigger a multitude of growth possibilities that
ultimately serves to help you return to your Source.
Everything and everyone we encounter throughout
our lives has a purpose, serving to assist us in healing
the illusion of our separation consciousness and
rediscover our whole being. By expanding our frame
of reference to include the world as a canvas onto
which our internal process is mapped, the potential for
healing and spiritual growth is immense. Literally, your
internal process is global! During this talk I propose to
explore how astro-locality techniques can be used to
help our clients understand the multi-dimensional
perspective of their growth process. Rather than using
locality astrology to describe what will happen within a
particular location, this talk will explore what individual
and unique processes are "held" within the sociophysical matrix of location that can trigger the
evolution of your consciousness, using practical
examples and case studies. I hope you feel the nudge
to join me on this exploration.

National charts cause strong and plentiful debates,

and yet the ancients had a simple and easily erected
answer. What was it, and what does it tell us about

Introduction to Vedic Palmistry:

In the honored Vedic tradition, the ancient science of
Vedic palmistry is considered a sister science to Vedic
astrology. Known by various names -- Hasta Rekha
Shastra, Hasta Samudrika and Hast Jyotisha -- Vedic
palmistry corroborates and substantiates the
information provided by the astrological birth chart.
This presentation will introduce the science of palm
and hand reading as it can be used in conjunction with
Vedic astrology to describe dynamic karmic patterns
reflected in character traits, behaviors and attitudes.
We will examine how the hands not only reveal but
also enact the balance of body, mind and spirit
through the three gunas (principles of nature) and
