David Cochrane - Times of Crisis: Accidents and Unexpected Upheavals
David Cochrane - Times of Crisis: Accidents and Unexpected Upheavals

Often we think of the planet Uranus when we think of unexpected upheavals, and we may think of Mars-Uranus with accidents. But does Uranus cross an angular house cusp or aspect an inner planet by transit or progression when our life takes a sudden unexpected turn? In a study of dozens of cases of accidents, traumatic events, and tragedy we found that Uranus is indeed prominent and Mars-Uranus combinations are common but in ways we might not have expected!

Heather Roan Robbins - What does Intimacy mean to you?

“Intimacy” means something different to each person, and its map is woven in our charts. One with a Sun-Moon quincunx and Venus-Mars fixed square will clash with one who has a Venus-Mars sextile under a mutable New Moon; their family patterns and ways they seek and receive affection can run on skew lines. But if they can map their differences and learn each other’s intimacy-language, they may be the perfect healing medicine for one another. 

Lee Lehman - Choosing Horary over Other Tools

Horary is an incredible tool for answering specific questions. However, the dividing line of when to use horary, compared to other techniques such as natal, electional and mundane has often been surprisingly fluid. In the modern era, the choice has often been made depending on the relative comfort zone of the individual astrologer with regard to all these systems. In this lecture, which is for both horary specialists and horary newbies, Lee will examine these boundaries, and suggest guidelines that will help you make these distinctions.
