JANUARY 2017

Thursday 5th

The Astrology of 2017 We start, Janus-like, by looking back at 2016 - a year of momentous change, before looking ahead to the astrology of the coming twelve months. 2017 sees the 2nd and 3rd in a series of Jupiter-Saturn squares, and the 2nd and 3rd in a series of Jupiter-Uranus oppositions. What challenges will these bring for the UK, the world and us as individuals? Bring your own charts as there may be time to explore how 2017 will impact you personally. We will also take a look at the US presidential inauguration chart, to see how the presidency of Donald J Trump is likely to pan out over the coming four years, and the UK chart to see what challenges and opportunities are in store for the country as we head towards uncharted waters. Join us we look unflinchingly into the future! 7:30 to 9:30pm at The Isbourne Holistic Centre, 2 Wolseley Terrace, Cheltenham. www.aquariussevern.com

24th - 26th: Faculty of Astrological Studies Winter Weekend Gateways to the Soul: Exploring the Moon and the Nodal Axis with Cat Cox, Glòria Roca Riera & Deborah Morgan. The Winter Weekend is designed for students familiar with natal chart work. It offers scope to explore the imaginative world of the Moon and the Nodes in the natal chart from cosmological, symbolic and experiential perspectives. Bringing awareness to the symbolic patterns of the Moon and the Nodes helps shape our self-awareness and support our emergence into a more rounded understanding of ourselves. Students will work in-depth with their own charts and those of their fellow students in pairs, small groups and in plenary teaching sessions, which will be held in comfortable and informal surroundings. The solar eclipse on 26th February at 8°12 Pisces (14.58 GMT) brings the relevance of the nodal axis into tangible experience, and this will be recognised in the course. Venue: Abbey House, Glastonbury. Information and booking: www.astrology.org.uk, email info@astrology.org.uk or phone 07000 790143
