Turning the Wheel of Your Zodiac Soul: Twelve Gateways to Wholeness In this engaging talk John Wadsworth will be sharing the fruits of his many years working with the Zodiac as a wheel of initiation, transformation and healing. This talk coincides with the launch of John's new book Your Zodiac Soul. Rather than focussing on the zodiac signs as being indicative of twelve personality types, John will present the zodiac as a complete, alchemical emblem of the soul, offering twelve transformational gateways in the ever-turning wheel of life. Treating the zodiac in the manner of a medicine wheel that we all possess complete and whole within the psyche, John will take us on an journey to restore the power and integrity of its twelve archetypal images. Location: Cheltenham. Details: Aquarius Severn Astrology group

Elisabeth will be teaching the traditional astrology of the famous Nicholas Culpeper which shows how astrology and the four humours can be used to maintain optimum health, as well as discover which herbs and essential oils can be used to treat simple ailments as they are all governed by one of the seven traditional planets. Throughout the week Elisabeth will be using material from her own practice but you will also be working on your own horoscope so you'll need your data to hand when you book - your time/place of birth and time of birth as accurately as possible - so that your chart can be prepared in advance. If you wish you may also bring one other horoscope that is of particular interest to you, and photocopies can be made for all other students to receive a copy. Cost: Summer School prices are being held at £295.00 for the week for the 4th year running!

Planetary Magic: Understanding Personality With Pricilla Costello. Are you a Pisces? Do you have a Jovial temperament? How would an astrological physician in Shakespeare's day diagnose you and your problems? Tonight's speaker introduces the pre-modern way of understanding human traits: temperament theory (which bases personality on the four elements of Earth, Air, Fire andWater) and astrological symbolism (the twelve zodiac signs). These assume that human character is reflected in the natural world, and in the world of archetypes. What are these types? And what recommendations did philosophers, doctors, and astrologers make to mitigate excesses or compensate for imbalances? At Treadwell's, 33 Store Street, Bloomsbury London, WC1E 7BS. Time: 7:15 for a 7:30 start. Cost: £9.00. Booking: www.treadwells-london.com
