Progressed Lunation Phases: A Modern Western Time Lord System

Everyone who pre-registers and sends their birth data to firstname.lastname@example.org before October 7th will receive a report giving the dates of their progressed lunation phases so this can be a hands-on workshop of personal exploration and realization.

Astrology and Self Care

The elements can be combined with astrological herbalism to help us explore lifestyle choices. We will explore methods for stress reduction, and also integrate interior toxicity considerations based on their astrological temperaments. Living well means living smart.

Four Tools for Accurate Forecasting
There are four essential tools that have to be considered and integrated for successful forecasting results. All have to be present if an event or significant experience is to occur. These four are: natal promise, progressions, transits and eclipses. This workshop will explain these techniques and use charts from case studies and as time permits, also use charts of attendees to ascertain unfolding events or analyze events that have already occurred.

Uranus to Mercury; Mars to Pluto; and Venus to Neptune. This work informs a simple yet profound technique allowing the birth-chart to serve as window to the soul's true nature. Informative examples from Mark’s extensive client work will be utilized to illuminate the material.

The Nodes Know, the Eclipses Show: Destiny, Opportunity and Renewal
The Nodes of the Moon serve as doorways to understanding the qualities of life many of us think of as destiny. Of course, the Nodes are also tied to eclipses, and integrating those cycles, we can see patterns that help us become more clear about fate and free will. As astrologers, we learn that have the power to shape our destiny through the choices we make. This workshop concentrates on working with the natal positions of the Moon's Nodes, adds Nodal cycles and integrates Solar and Lunar Eclipses as forecasting tools.
